Use a hex-head socket wrench to adjust the front roller
leveling screws until the doors are even. Turn the front roller
leveling screw to the right to raise that side of the refrigerator
or turn the leveling screw to the left to lower that side. See
Graphic 10.
NOTE: Open and close both the refrigerator and freezer
doors after each adjustment to check the door alignment.
Open the doors and replace the base grille. Line up the grille
support tabs with the metal clips. Push the grille firmly to
snap it into place.
NOTE: Be sure to refasten the Tech Sheet behind the base
grille.
Read all directions before you begin.
IMPORTANT:
If you turn the refrigerator on before the water line
is connected, turn the ice maker OFR
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" (12.70 mm) to 11/4'' (3.18 cm) vertical cold water
pipe near the refrigerator.
IMPORTANT:

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 need. Measure
from the connection on the lower rear corner of the
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"(6.35 mm) hole in the cold
water pipe you have selected.

Fasten shutoff valve to cold water pipe with pipe clamp. Be
sure outlet end is solidly in the 1/4"(6.35 mm) drilled hole in
the water pipe and that washer is under the pipe clamp.
Tighten packing nut. Tighten the pipe clamp screws slowly
and evenly so the washer makes a watertight seal. Do not
overtighten or you may crush the copper tubing.
7. Slip the compression
sleeve and compression
nut on the
copper tubing as shown. Insert the end of the tubing into the
outlet end squarely as far as it will go. Screw the compression
nut onto the outlet end with an adjustable wrench. Do not
overtighten.
8. Place the free end of the tubing into a container or sink, and
turn ON main water supply and flush out the tubing until
water is clear. Turn OFF the shutoff valve on the water pipe.
Coil the copper tubing.
Connect to Refrigerator
Style 1
1. Unplug refrigerator or disconnect
power.
2. Remove the shipping tape from the gray, coiled water tubing
on the rear of the refrigerator.
3. If the gray water tube supplied with the refrigerator is not long
enough, a 1/4"x 1/4"coupling is needed in order to connect the
water tubing to an existing household water supply line.
Thread the provided nut onto the coupling on the end of the
copper tubing.
NOTE: Tighten the nut by hand. Then tighten it with a wrench
two more turns. Do not overtighten.
