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) 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.

Read all directions before you begin.
IMPORTANT:
If you turn the refrigerator on before the water line is
connected, turn the ice maker OFE
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.
TOOLS NEEDED: Flat-blade screwdriver, 7A6 II and 1/211 open-end
wrenches or 2 adjustable wrenches, 1/4"nut driver and drill bit,
hand drill or electric drill (properly grounded). Gather the required
tools and parts before starting installation. Read and follow the
instructions provided with any tools listed.
NOTE: Your refrigerator dealer has a kit available with a V4"
(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 3/_6"
(4.76 mm) saddle valve which reduces water flow and clogs more
easily.
Water Pressure
A cold water supply with water pressure of between 30 and
120 psi (207 and 827 kPa) is required to operate the ice maker. If
you have questions about your water pressure, call a licensed,
qualified plumber.
Reverse Osmosis
Water Supply
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 ice maker is still not operating properly:
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 you have questions about your water pressure, call a licensed,
qualified plumber.
Read all directions before you begin.
IMPORTANT: If you turn the refrigerator on before the water line is
connected, turn the ice maker OFE
Connect
to Water Line
1. Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power.
2. Turn OFF main water supply. Turn ON nearest faucet long
enough to clear line of water.
3. Locate a 1/2"to 1V4" (1.27 cm to 3.18 cm) vertical cold water
pipe near the refrigerator.
IMPORTANT:
4,
5,
Make sure it is a cold water pipe.
Horizontal pipe will work, but drill on the top side of the
pipe, not the bottom. This will help keep water away from
the drill and normal sediment from collecting in the valve.
Determine the length of copper tubing you will need. Measure
from the connection on lower left rear of refrigerator to the
water pipe. Add 7 ft (2.1 m) to allow for cleaning. Use 1/4"
(6.35 mm) O.D. (outside diameter) copper tubing. Be sure both
ends of copper tubing are cut square.
Using a grounded drill, drill a 1/4"hole in the cold water pipe
you have selected.

Fasten the shutoff valve to the cold water pipe with the pipe
clamp. Be sure the outlet end is solidly in the 1/4"drilled hole in
the water pipe and that the washer is under the pipe clamp.
Tighten the packing nut. Tighten the pipe clamp screws slowly
and evenly so washer makes a watertight seal. Do not
overtighten or you may crush the copper tubing.
