WATER SUPPLY REQUIREMENTS
A cold water supply with water pressure between 30 and 120 psi
(207 and 827 kPa) is required to operate the Water Dispenser and ice maker.
The maximum operating water temperature is 100° F (38° C).
If the water pressure is less than what is required, the flow of water from
the Water Dispenser could decrease or ice cubes could be hollow
or irregularly shaped.
If you have questions about your water pressure, call a licensed, qualified plumber.
TOOLS THAT MAY BE NEEDED BASED ON
Gather the required tools and parts before starting installation.
The required tools may vary, depending on your specific installation
• Flat-blade screwdriver
• 2 adjustable wrenches
NOTE: Do not use a piercing-type or 3/16" (4.76 mm) saddle valve, which
reduces water flow and can clog more easily.
• Plumbing must be installed in accordance with the International
Plumbing Code and any local codes and ordinances.
• Copper and PEX tubing connections from the household water line to
the refrigerator are acceptable and will help avoid off-taste or off-odor
water and ice. Check for leaks.
• If PEX tubing is used instead of copper, we recommend the following part
numbers: W10505928RP (7 ft. [2.14 m]) and W10267701RP (25 ft. [7.62 m] PEX).
• Install tubing only in areas where temperature will remain above freezing.
