Door Closing
1. Move the refrigerator into its final position.
2. Place a level inside the refrigerator at the back of the top shelf
(see Graphic 8).
3. Locate the leveling screws behind the base grille of the
refrigerator on either side.
4. Use a hex-head socket wrench to adjust the rear roller
leveling screws until the refrigerator is level. Turn the rear
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 9). Make sure refrigerator is level before
5. Check the door alignment after leveling the refrigerator.
Door Alignment
If the doors are uneven after leveling the product (see
Graphic 10), follow the steps below.
1. 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 11).
NOTE: Open and close both the refrigerator and freezer doors
after each adjustment to check the door alignment.
2. 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 carefully before you begin.
If you turn the refrigerator on before the water line is
turn the ice maker QFK
All installations must meet local plumbing code requirements.
Use copper tubing and check for leaks. Install copper tubing
only in areas where temperatures
will remain above freezing.
Tools required: Standard screwdriver, 7/_6 in. and _/2in. open-end
wrenches or two adjustable wrenches, V4in. nut driver and drill
bit, hand drill or electric drill (properly grounded).
NOTE: Your refrigerator dealer has a kit available with a _/4in.
(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 SA6 in.
(4.76 mm) saddle valve which reduces water flow and clogs more
Cold water supply
Connect the ice maker to a cold water line with water pressure
between 30 and 120 psi. If you have questions about your water
pressure, call your utility company.
to Water Line
1. Unplug refrigerator or disconnect
2. Turn OFF main water supply. Turn ON nearest faucet long
enough to clear line of water.
Locate a V2in. to 1V4in. (1.25 cm to 3.18 cm) vertical COLD
water pipe near the refrigerator.
NOTE: 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 left rear of refrigerator to the
water pipe. Add 7 ft. (2.1 m) to allow for cleaning. Use V4in.
(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 V4in. 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 _/4in. drilled hole
in the water pipe and that the washer is under the pipe clamp.
Tighten the packing nut. Tighten the pipe clamp screws
carefully and evenly so 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 compression
onto outlet end with adjustable wrench. Do not overtighten.
Place the free end of the tubing in a container or sink, and
turn ON the main water supply. Flush the tubing until water is
clear. Turn OFF the shutoff valve on the water pipe. Coil the
copper tubing.
to Refrigerator
1. Attach the copper tube to the valve inlet using a compression
nut and sleeve as shown. Tighten the compression
nut. Do
not overtighten. Use the tube clamp on the back of the
refrigerator to secure the tubing to the refrigerator as shown.
This will help prevent damage to the tubing when the
refrigerator is pushed back against the wall.
2. Turn shutoff valve ON.
Check for leaks. Tighten any connections
at the valve) or nuts that leak.

4. The ice maker is equipped with a built-in water strainer. If
your water conditions
require a second water strainer, install
it in the _/4in. (6.35 mm) water line at either tube connection.
Obtain a water strainer from your nearest appliance dealer.
Plug in refrigerator or reconnect power.
