CONNECT THE TUBING TO THE
7
REFRIGERATOR
Some models have the refrigerator connection at
the end of tubing located outside the compressor
compartment access cover. On other models,
the compressor compartment access cover must
be removed in order to access the refrigerator
connection at the water valve.
On models using the refrigeration connection at the
water valve, remove the plastic flexible cap.
Place the compression nut and ferrule (sleeve)
onto the end of the tubing as shown. On a GE
SmartConnect
Refrigerator Tubing kit, the nuts
are already assembled to the tubing.
Insert the end of the tubing into the refrigerator
connection as far as possible. While holding the
tubing, tighten the fitting.
For plastic tubing from a GE SmartConnect
Refrigerator Tubing kit, insert the molded end of the
tubing into the refrigerator connection and tighten
the compression nut until it is hand tight, then tighten
one additional turn with a wrench. Overtightening
may cause leaks.
Fasten the tubing into the clamp provided as shown
to keep it in position. You may need to pry open the
clamp.
One of the illustrations below will look like the
connection on your refrigerator.
