Water Supply Connection

Connecting the Water Supply

When connecting the water supply, follow these
guidelines:
Review the local plumbing codes before you
install the unit.
The water pressure should be between 30
and 120 psi.
CAUTION
If you are using a filter system you will need
to have at least 20 psi for 3 minutes every 15
minutes.
Make certain a SHUT-OFF VALVE is installed
in the 1/4 inch water supply line.
Connect sufficient tubing to the unit to
allow the unit to be moved for cleaning and
servicing. However, make certain that the
tubing is not pinched or damaged during
installation.
Electrolux recommends the use of copper
tubing for installation. DO NOT use plastic
water supply line since it may crack or
rupture with age and may cause water
damage to your house.
1
Locate the compression fitting and ferrule
packed in the unit. Slide the compression
fitting and ferrule over the 1/4 inch water
supply line. Do not use thread sealing
compound or tape. Using two wrenches,
tighten the compression fitting on the supply
line (see Figure 6).
2
Carefully bend the water supply line into
position and connect the line to the solenoid
valve. Avoid kinking the water supply line.
3
For recessed installations, allow extra water
supply line length to provide slack for easy
removal from the recessed area (see Figure
8). This will also safeguard against kinking
the line.

CAUTION
After completing the installation, turn on
the water and recheck water and drain
connection for leaks. Apply additional
tightening if needed. Do NOT use thread
sealing compound or tape.
4
Plug in the power cord.
5
Gently push the unit into position. If desired
the unit may be recessed into cabinet or wall.
6
Allow at least 1-1/2 inches clearance behind
the unit for electrical, water supply and drain
connections.
