Electrical Requirements

WARNING
Electrical Shock Hazard
Plug into a grounded (earthed) 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 electrical 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. (Plug 1), 220/240 Volt 50 Hz. (Plugs 2 or 3), or
220 Volt 60 Hz. (Plug 3) AC only 10-amp fused and grounded
(earthed) electrical supply is required.
Plug 1
It is recommended that a separate circuit serving only your
refrigerator be provided. Use an outlet that cannot be turned off
by a switch or pull chain. Do not use an extension cord.
WARNING
Electrical Shock Hazard
Disconnect power before servicing.
Replace all parts and panels before operating.
Failure to do so can result in death or electrical shock.
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) to 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.
For Saudi Arabia:
Your new appliance has been especially manufactured to meet all
Saudi Arabia Standards and Conditions.
Some notations in the installation instructions may refer to
electrical requirements in other countries, so we draw your
particular attention to these specific notes.
Your appliance needs to be plugged into a 220 Volt 60 Hz 10-amp
(Plug 3) AC only earthed outlet.

Water Supply Requirements

Gather the required tools and parts before starting installation.
Read and follow the instructions provided with any tools listed
here.
TOOLS NEEDED:
Flat-blade screwdriver
⁷⁄₁₆" and ¹⁄₂" Open-end or two
adjustable wrenches
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.
IMPORTANT:
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.
Water Pressure
A potable cold water supply with water pressure of between 30
and 120 psi (207 and 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.
If your refrigerator has a water dispenser: After installation is
complete, use the water dispenser to check the water
pressure.
With the water filter removed, dispense 1 cup (237 mL) of
water. If 1 cup of water is dispensed in 8 seconds or less,
the water pressure to the refrigerator meets the minimum
requirement.
If it takes longer than 8 seconds to dispense 1 cup of
water, the water pressure to the refrigerator is lower than
recommended. See "Troubleshooting" for suggestions.
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 and
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 to 414 kPa).
If the water pressure to the reverse osmosis system is less than
40 to 60 psi (276 to 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, it may further reduce the
water pressure when used in conjunction with a reverse
osmosis system. Remove the water filter. See "Water Filtration
System" in the User Instructions, User Guide, or Use & Care
Guide.
If you have questions about your water pressure, call a licensed,
qualified plumber.
