All about the Use & Care of your Refrigerator
CONNECTING THE WATER SUPPLY
To avoid electric shock, which can cause death or severe personal injury, disconnect the refrigerator from electrical power before connecting a water supply line to the refrigerator.
To Avoid Property Damage:
• Copper or Stainless Steel braided tubing is recommended for the water supply line. Water supply tubing made of ¼ inch plastic is not recommended to be used. Plastic tubing greatly increases the potential for water leaks, and the manufacturer will not be responsible for any damage if plastic tubing is used for the supply line.
• DO NOT install water supply tubing in areas where temperatures fall below freezing.
• Chemicals from a malfunctioning softener can damage the ice maker. If the ice maker is connected to soft water, ensure that the softener is maintained and working properly
Ensure that your water supply line connections comply with all local plumbing codes.
Before Installing The Water Supply Line, You Will Need:
• Basic Tools: adjustable wrench, flat-blade screwdriver, and PhillipsTM screwdriver
• Access to a household cold water line with water pressure between 30 and 100 psi.
• A water supply line made of ¼ inch (6.4 mm) OD, copper or stainless steel tubing. To determine the length of tubing needed, measure the distance from the ice maker inlet valve at the back of the refrigerator to your cold water pipe. Then add approximately 7 feet (2.1 meters), so the refrigerator can be moved out for cleaning (as shown).
• A shutoff valve to connect the water supply line to your household water system. DO NOT use a self-piercing type shutoff valve.
• Do not re-use compression fitting or use thread seal tape.
• A compression nut and ferrule (sleeve) for connecting a copper water supply line to the ice maker inlet valve.
Check with your local building authority for recommendations on water lines and associa
