Installation Instructions
STEP 9 REPLACE FRESH FOOD DOORS
STEP 10 INSTALL WATER LINE
Recommended copper water supply kits are WX8X2, WX8X3
or WX8X4, depending on the amount of tubing you need.
Approved plastic water supply lines are GE SmartConnect™
Refrigerator Tubing (WX08X10006, WX08X10015 and
WX08X10025).
When connecting your refrigerator to a GE Reverse Osmosis
Water System, the only approved installation is with a GE
RVKit. For other reverse osmosis water systems, follow the
manufacturer’s recommendations.
If the water supply to the refrigerator is from a Reverse
Osmosis Water Filtration System (RO)AND the refrigerator
also has a water filter, use the refrigerator’s filter bypass
plug. Using the refrigerator’s water filtration cartridge in
conjunction with an RO water filter can result in hollow ice
cubes.
This water line installation is not warranted by the
refrigerator or ice maker manufacturer. Follow these
instructions carefully to minimize the risk of expensive
water damage.
Water hammer (water banging in the pipes) in house
plumbing can cause damage to refrigerator parts and
lead to water leakage or flooding. Call a qualified plumber
to correct water hammer before installing the water
supply line to the refrigerator.
To prevent burns and product damage, do not hook up
the water line to the hot water line.
Do not install the ice maker tubing in areas where
temperatures fall below freezing.
When using any electrical device (such as a power drill)
during installation, be sure the device is double insulated
or grounded in a manner to prevent the hazard of electric
shock, or is battery powered.
All installations must be in accordance with local
plumbing code requirements.
• Copper or GE SmartConnect™ Refrigerator Tubing kit,
1/4” outer diameter to connect the refrigerator to the
water supply. If using copper, be sure both ends of the
tubing are cut square.
To determine how much tubing you need:
measure the distance from the water valve on the back of
the refrigerator to the water supply pipe. Be sure there is
sufficient extra tubing to allow the refrigerator to move out
from the wall after installation.
GE SmartConnect™ Refrigerator Tubing Kits are available
in the following lengths:
6’ (1.8 m)
– WX08X10006
15’ (4.6 m)
– WX08X10015
25’ (7.6 m)
– WX08X10025
A. Reinstall center hinge first and torque the screws
to 65 in-lbs. With the LH door at 90º to the front ofthe
case, lower the refrigerator door onto the center
hinge. Ensure that the door and hinge align correctly.
B. Rotate door closed and make sure moveable center
sealing portion of the door aligns with the striker. If
the door will not self-close after reinstalling, remove
door, turn door upside down, check alignment mark
and arrow; (there is an alignment mark on the door
closure mechanism It corresponds to an alignment
mark on the bottom end cap. Rotate door closure
mechanism to align mark and arrow, reinstall door).
Underside OF
Fresh Food Door
align marks
If door cannot be installed at 90° follow steps below:
1. If space or model limits opening door to less than 180°, then:
a) Remove door, carefully turn door upside down.
b) Check alignment of door closure mechanism shaft on
underside of door. The flats on the shaft should
correspond to alignment tab on plastic ring or mark
on bottom end cap.
c) If shaft is not aligned to tab/mark, using 5/32” Allen
wrench, rotate door closure mechanism shaft
counterclockwise for right door and clockwise for left
door. Then align flat with tab/mark.
d) Install the door at 90°.
Securely tape the door shut with masking tape or have a
second person support the door. Reinstall the top hinge
and torque the screws to 65 in-lbs.
C. Be sure to reinstall the ground wire and strain relief
to the top hinge.
D. Reinstall the hinge cover. Note: Ensure wires are not
pinched or under screw bosses before tightening
screws.
E. Follow the same procedure on the opposite door.

Installation Instructions
STEP 12 PLUG IN THE REFRIGERATOR
STEP 11 CONNECT WATER SUPPLY
A cold water supply is required for automatic ice maker
operation. If there is not a cold water supply, you will need
to provide one. See Installing the Water Line section.
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 it in the water line
near the refrigerator. If using GE SmartConnect™
Refrigerator Tubing Kit, you will need an additional tube
(WX08X10002) to connect the filter. Do not cut plastic
tube to install filter.
• Before connecting the water line to the house, purge the
house line for at least 2 minutes.
A. If you are using copper tubing, place a compression nut
and ferrule (sleeve) onto the end of the tubing coming
from the house cold water supply.
If you are using the GE SmartConnect™ tubing, the nuts
are already assembled to the tubing.

STEP 13 LEVEL THE REFRIGERATOR
The leveling legs have two purposes:
• Leveling legs adjust so the refrigerator is firmly positioned on the floor and does not wobble.
• Leveling legs serve as a stabilizing brake
to hold the refrigerator securely in position during
operation and cleaning. The leveling legs also prevent
the refrigerator from tipping.
Turn the leveling legs clockwise to raise the refrigerator,
counterclockwise to lower it.

B. If you are using copper tubing, insert the end of the
tubing into the refrigerator connection, at the back of the
refrigerator, as far as possible. While holding the tubing,
tighten the fitting.
If you are using GE SmartConnect™ tubing, insert
the molded end of the tubing into the refrigerator
connection, at the back of the refrigerator, and tighten
the compression nut until it is hand tight. Then tighten
one additional turn with a wrench. Over tightening may
cause leaks.
C. Fasten the tubing into the clamp provided to hold it in
position. You may need to pry open the clamp.
D. Turn on the water at the shut-off valve to check
for leaks.
