5. Fasten shut-off valve to cold water pipe with pipe
clamp. Be sure outlet end is solidly in the X-inch
drilled hole in the water pipe and that washer is
under the pipe clamp. Tighten packing nut. Tighten
the pipe clamp screws carefully and evenly so
washer makes a watertight seal. Do not overtighten
or you may crush the copper tubing, especially if soft
(coiled) copper tubing is used. Now you are ready to
connect the copper tubing.
6. Slip compression
sleeve and compression
nut on
copper tubing as shown in diagram. Insert end of
tubing into outlet end squarely as far as it will go.
Screw compression
nut onto outlet end with adjust-
able wrench. Do not over-tighten. Turn ON main
water supply and flush out tubing until water is clear.
Turn OFF shut-off valve on the water pipe. Coil
copper tubing.
Connecting
to refrigerator
NOTE: The first step for connecting the water line to
your refrigerator is different depending on the type of
water valve provided with your refrigerator. See the
diagrams at right to determine the style of valve you
have. (On kit models, assemble water valve to refrig-
erator per kit instructions.)
1. For style #l, disconnect the tube clamp on the back
of the product and insert the copper tubing through
the clamp, as shown at the right. Remove the tape
label from the valve inlet and insert copper tubing
until it bottoms out (approximately
%-inch). Tighten
nut by hand as much as possible; then turn the nut
an additional
l/2 turn using a wrench. Do not over-
tighten. Re-attach the tube clamp and tube to the
back of the cabinet. Skip to step 2.
For style #2, disconnect the tube clamp on the
back of the product and insert copper tubing through
the clamp as shown at the right. Attach the copper
tube to the valve inlet using a compression
nut and
sleeve as shown. Tighten the compression
nut. Do
not over-tighten. Re-attach the tube clamp and tube
to the back of the cabinet. Move to step 2.
2. Turn shut-off
valve ON. CHECK FOR LEAKS.
TIGHTEN ANY CONNECTIONS
(INCLUDING
CONNECTIONS
AT THE VALVE) OR NUTS
THAT LEAK.
3. The ice maker is equipped with a built-in water
strainer. If local water conditions require periodic
cleaning or a well is your source of water supply, a
second water strainer should be installed in the 9'~
inch water line. Obtain a water strainer from your
nearest appliance dealer. Install at either tube
connection.
4. Reconnect electrical supply to refrigerator.
