Unpack the Ice Maker

WARNING
Excessive Weight Hazard
Use two or more people to move and install ice maker.
Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.
Removing Packaging Materials
Remove tape and glue from your ice maker before using.
To remove any remaining tape or glue from the exterior of the
ice maker, rub the area briskly with your thumb. Tape or glue
residue can also be easily removed by rubbing a small
amount of liquid dish soap over the adhesive with your
fingers. Wipe with warm water and dry.
Do not use sharp instruments, rubbing alcohol, flammable
fluids, or abrasive cleaners to remove tape or glue. Do not
use chlorine bleach on the stainless steel surfaces of the ice
maker. These products can damage the surface of your
ice maker.
Cleaning Before Use
After you remove all of the packaging materials, clean the inside
of your ice maker before using it. See the cleaning instructions in
the "Ice Maker Care" section.

Location Requirements

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 #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 (21ºC and 32°C).
The ice maker must be installed in an area sheltered from the
elements, such as wind, rain, water spray, or drip.
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. See "Leveling."
When installing the ice maker under a counter, follow the
recommended opening dimensions shown. Place electrical
and plumbing fixtures in the recommended location as
shown.
NOTES:
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.
