Fasten shut-off
valve to cold water pipe with pipe
clamp.
Be sure outlet end is solidly in the 1/4in (6.35
ram) drilled hole in the water pipe and that washer
is
under the pipe clamp.
Tighten packing
nut. Tighten the
pipe clamp screws carefully
and evenly so washer
makes a watertight
seal. Do not overtighten
or you may
crush the copper tubing,
especially
if soft (coiled)
copper
tubing is used. Now you are ready to connect
the copper
tubing.

Slip compression
sleeve and compression
nut on
copper tubing as shown. Insert end of tubing into outlet
end squarely as far as it will go. Screw compression
nut
onto outlet end with adjustable
wrench.
Do not
overtighten.
8.
Place the free end of the tubing into a container
or sink,
and turn ON main water supply
and flush out tubing
until water is clear. Turn OFF shut-off
valve on the water
pipe. Coil copper tubing.

The first step for connecting
the water line to your
refrigerator
is different
depending
on the type of water
valve provided
with your refrigerator.
See the diagrams

the style of valve you have. (On kit
models, assemble water valve to refrigerator
