and not to a shutoff valve, you need a ferrule, a union, and a
¹⁄₄" compression fitting.

Location Requirements

The refrigerator can be recessed in an opening between cabinets
or installed at the end of a cabinet run using a side panel to
enclose the refrigerator.
Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as
gasoline, away from refrigerator.
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
IMPORTANT:
Observe all governing codes and ordinances.
It is recommended that you do not install the refrigerator near
an oven, radiator, or other heat source.
Do not install in a location where the temperature will fall
below 55°F (13°C).
Floor must support the refrigerator weight, more than 600 lbs
(272 kg), door panels and contents of the refrigerator.
Ceiling height must allow for side tipping radius. See "Tipping
Radius."
Location should permit door to open fully. See "Door Swing
Dimensions."
Location must permit top grille removal. See "Opening
Dimensions."
Opening Dimensions
To avoid tipping during use, the solid soffit must be within 1"
(2.5 cm) maximum above the refrigerator. If the solid soffit is
higher than 1" (2.5 cm) or one is not available, then the
refrigerator must be braced.
If the anti-tip boards are needed, they must be attached to
the rear wall studs 80" to 90" (203 to 229 cm) above the floor.
See "Install Anti-Tip Boards" for more information.
