Electrical Shock Hazard
Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
Do not remove ground prong.
Do not use an adapter.
Do not use an extension cord.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death,
fire, or electrical shock.
Before you move your refrigerator into its final location, it is
important to make sure you have the proper electrical connection.
Recommended
Grounding
Method
A 115 volt, 60 Hz., AC only, 15- or 20-amp fused, grounded
electrical supply is required. It is recommended
that a separate
circuit serving only your refrigerator be provided. Use an outlet
that cannot be turned off by a switch. Do not use an
extension cord.
NOTE: Before performing any type of installation, cleaning, or
removing a light bulb, turn the control (Thermostat, Refrigerator or
Freezer Control depending on the model) to OFF and then
disconnect the refrigerator from the electrical source. When you
are finished, reconnect the refrigerator to the electrical source and
reset the control (Thermostat, Refrigerator or Freezer Control
depending on the model) to the desired setting. See "Using the
Controls."
Gather the required tools and parts before starting installation.
Read and follow the instructions
provided with any tools listed
here.
TOOLS NEEDED:
Flat-blade screwdriver
V4" Nut driver
7Ae"and W' Open-end or two
V4" Drill bit
adjustable wrenches
Cordless drill
NOTE: Your refrigerator dealer has a kit available with a W'
(6.35 mm) saddle-type shutoff valve, a union, and copper tubing.
Before purchasing, make sure a saddle-type
valve complies with
your local plumbing codes. Do not use a piercing-type
or ¾e"
(4.76 mm) saddle valve which reduces water flow and clogs more
easily.
IM PO RTAN T:
All installations must meet local plumbing code requirements.
Use copper tubing and check for leaks. Install copper tubing
only in areas where the household temperatures will remain
above freezing.
Wa_rPmssum
A cold water supply with water pressure of between 30 and
120 psi (207 and 827 kPa) is required to operate the water
dispenser and ice maker. If you have questions about your water
pressure, call a licensed, qualified plumber.
Reverse Osmosis Water Supply
IMPORTANT: The pressure of the water supply coming out of a
reverse osmosis system going to the water inlet valve of the
refrigerator needs to be between 30 and 120 psi (207 and
827 kPa).
If a reverse osmosis water filtration system is connected to your
cold water supply, the water pressure to the reverse osmosis
system needs to be a minimum of 40 to 60 psi (276 to 414 kPa).
If the water pressure to the reverse osmosis system is less than
40 to 60 psi (276 to 414 kPa):
Check to see whether the sediment filter in the reverse
osmosis system is blocked. Replace the filter if necessary.
Allow the storage tank on the reverse osmosis system to refill
after heavy usage.
If your refrigerator has a water filter, it may further reduce the
water pressure when used in conjunction with a reverse
osmosis system. Remove the water filter. See "Water Filtration
System."
If you have questions about your water pressure, call a licensed,
qualified plumber.
Read all directions before you begin.
IMPORTANT:
Plumbing shall be installed in accordance with the
International Plumbing Code and any local codes and
ordinances.
Use copper tubing or Whirlpool supply line, Part Number
8212547RP, and check for leaks.
Install tubing only in areas where temperatures will remain
above freezing.
TOOLS NEEDED:
Gather the required tools and parts before starting installation.
