TTACHING THE OPTIONAL ICE
MAKER TO A WATER SUPPLY
Read all directions carefully before you begin.
IMPORTANT:
Use copper tubing only and check for leaks.
Install ice maker tubing in areas where temperatures
are above freezing.
Contact your dealer or authorized Whirlpool service
company for proper installation and parts.
Cold water supply
The ice maker water valve contains a flow washer which
is used as a water pressure regulator. The ice maker
needs to be connected to a cold water line with water
pressure limitations of 20-120 psi. If a problem occurs,
call your utility company.
IMPORTANT:
It may take up to 24 hours for your ice maker to begin
producing ice.
If operating the refrigerator before installing the water
connection, turn ice maker to the OFF position to pre-
vent operation without water.
All installations must be in accordance with local
plumbing code requirements.
Installation is not warranted by
refrigerator or ice maker manufacturer.
