INSTALLING THE REFRIGERATOR

REFRIGERATOR LOCATION
• Do not install the refrigerator where the temperature
will go below 60°F (16°C) because it will not run often
enough to maintain proper temperatures.
• Do not install the refrigerator where the temperature
will go above 100°F (37°C) because it will not perform
properly.
• Do not install the refrigerator in a location exposed to
water (rain, etc.) or direct sunlight.
• Install it on a floor strong enough to support it fully
loaded.
CLEARANCES
For clearance for ease of installation, proper air circulation
and plumbing and electrical, please refer to the rating
plate on the top left wall of the refrigerator.

• IMPORTANT NOTE: This refrigerator is 34-1/2" deep.
Doors and passageways leading to the installation
location must be at least 36" wide in order to leave
the doors and handles attached to the refrigerator
while transporting it into the installation location.
If passageways are less than 36", the refrigerator
doors and handles can easily be scratched and
damaged. The top cap and doors can be removed
to allow the refrigerator to be safely moved indoors.
Start with Step A.

Leave tape and all packaging on doors until the
refrigerator is in the final location.

CONNECTING THE REFRIGERATOR
1
TO THE HOUSE WATER LINE
(icemaker models)
A cold water supply is required for automatic icemaker
operation. If there is not a cold water supply, you will need to
provide one. See Installing the Water Line section.
NOTES:
• Before making the connection to the refrigerator, be sure the
refrigerator power cord is not plugged into the wall outlet.
• If your refrigerator does not have a water filter, we
recommend installing one if your water supply has sand
or particles that could clog the screen of the refrigerator's
water valve. Install it in the water line near the refrigerator.
If using GE SmartConnect
need an additional tube (WX08X10002) to connect the filter.
Do not cut plastic tube to install filter.
