PRODUCT MODEL NUMBER
Electrical: A 115 Volt, 60 Hz., AC only, 15- or 20-amp electrical supply,
properly grounded in accordance with the National Electrical Code and local
codes and ordinances, is required.
It is recommended that a separate circuit, serving only your ice maker, be
provided. Use a receptacle which cannot be turned off by a switch or pull
IMPORTANT: If this product is connected to a GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit
Interrupter) equipped outlet, nuisance tripping of the power supply may
occur, resulting in loss of cooling. Ice quality may be affected. If nuisance
tripping has occurred, and if the condition of the ice appears poor, dispose
Water: A cold water supply with water pressure between 30 and 120 psi
(207 and 827 kPa) is required to operate ice maker. If you have questions
about your water pressure, call a licensed, qualified plumber.
To ensure proper ventilation for your ice maker, the front side must be
completely unobstructed. The ice maker may be closed-in on the top and
three sides, but the installation should allow the ice maker to be pulled
forward for servicing if necessary.
Installation of the ice maker requires a cold water supply inlet of
(6.35 mm) OD soft copper tubing with a shutoff valve or a Whirlpool
supply line Part Number 8212547RB, and a Whirlpool approved drain
pump, Part Number 1901A, only to carry the water to an existing drain.
Choose a well ventilated area with temperatures above 55°F (13°C) and
below 110°F (43°C). Best results are obtained between 70°F and 90°F
(21°C and 32°C).

CABINET OPENING DIMENSIONS
Check that the power supply cord is not damaged, or pinched or kinked
between the ice maker and the cabinet.
Check that the water supply line is not damaged, or pinched or kinked
between the ice maker and the cabinet.
Check that the drain line (on some models) is not damaged, or pinched or
kinked between the ice maker and the cabinet.
Choose a location where the floor is even. It is important for the ice maker
to be level in order to work properly. If needed, you can adjust the height of
the ice maker by changing the height of the leveling legs.
Gravity Drain System
Connect the ice maker drain to your drain in accordance with all state and local codes
and ordinances. If the ice maker is provided with a gravity drain system, follow these
guidelines when installing drain lines. This will help keep water from flowing back into
the ice maker storage bin and potentially flowing onto the floor, causing water damage.
Drain lines must have a minimum of
Drain lines must have a 1" drop per 48" (2.54 cm drop per 122 cm) of run or
per 12" (6.35 mm per 30.48 cm) of run and must not have low points where water
The floor drains must be large enough to accommodate drainage from all drains.
The ideal installation has a standpipe with a 1
reducer installed directly below the outlet of the drain tube as shown. You must
maintain a 1" (2.54 cm) air gap between the drain hose and the standpipe.
IMPORTANT: A drain pump is necessary when a floor drain is not available. A Drain Pump
kit, Part Number 1901A, is available for purchase.
Drain Pump System (on some models)
Connect the ice maker drain to your drain in accordance with the International
Plumbing Code and any local codes and ordinances.
The drain pump discharge line must terminate at an open sited drain.
