9. CONNECT
THE TUBING
TO THE
REFRIGERATOR
NOTES:
• Before making the connection to the refrigerator, be
sure the refrigerator power cord is not plugged into
the wall outlet.
• If your refrigerator does not have a water filter,
we recommend installing one if your water supply
has sand or particles that could clog the screen of
the refrigerator's water valve. Install the filter in the
water line near the refrigerator.
IMPORTANT: Do not use old, worn or used waterlines,
only use new for a better use and service.
Connect only to the supply of drinking water for your
safety and health.
1. Remove the plastic flexible
cap from the water valve.
2. Place the compression nut
and ferrule (sleeve) onto
the end of the tubing as shown.
