CONNECTING
THE REFRIGERATOR
TO THE HOUSE WATER LINE
(icemaker and dispenser 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
TM
Refrigerator Tubing Kit, you
will need an additional tube (WXO8XIO002) to
connect the filter. Do not cut plastic tube to
install filter.
