or stainless steel tubing. To determine the length of tubing
neeaea, measure the distance from the ice maker inlet
valve at the back of the refrigerator to your cold water
pipe. Then add approximatery 7 feet, so the refrigerator
can De movea out for cleaning.
• A shutoff valve to connect the water supply, line to your
nousenold water system. DO NOT use a self-piercing type
shutoff valve.
