Electricam Shock Hazard
Pmug 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 eiectricam 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.
Gather the required tools and parts before starting installation.
Read and follow the instructions
provided with any tools listed
here.
IMPORTANT:
If you turn the refrigerator on before the water line is
connected, turn the ice maker OFR
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, 7/16 I I and 1/211 open-end
wrenches or two adjustable wrenches, 1/4"nut driver and drill bit,
hand drill or electric drill (properly grounded).
NOTE: Your refrigerator dealer has a kit available with a 1/4"
(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 3/16"
(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 - 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 - 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 - 414 kPa).
If the water pressure to the reverse osmosis system is less than
40 to 60 psi (276 - 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 cartridge, it may further
reduce the water pressure when used in conjunction
with a
reverse osmosis system. Remove the water filter cartridge.
See "Water Filtration System."
If you have questions about your water pressure, call a licensed,
qualified plumber.
