between 40 and 120 p.s.i.
• Route 1/4" OD copper or GE SmartConnect™
plastic tubing between house cold water line and
the water connection location.
• Tubing should be long enough to extend to the
front of the refrigerator. Allow enough tubing to
accommodate bend leading into the water line
connection.
NOTE: The only GE approved plastic tubing is
supplied in the GE SmartConnect™ Refrigerator
Tubing kits. Do not use any other plastic water supply
line because the line is under pressure at all times.
Other types of plastic may crack or rupture with age
and cause water damage to your home.
GE SmartConnect™ Refrigerator Tubing Kits are
available in the following lengths:
2' (.6 m) WX08X10002
6' (1.8 m) WX08X10006

All models have 4-point leveling. The front is
supported by leveling legs, the rear is supported by
adjustable wheels. Both are accessible from the front
of the refrigerator.
• To level the back of the refrigerator, turn the
7/16" hex nut located above the front wheels. Turn
clockwise to raise or counterclockwise to lower the
refrigerator.
• For front leveling, use a 1-1/4" open-end wrench.
• Adjust height of refrigerator to match installation
cutout opening 83-1/2" to 84-1/2". The refrigerator
should be level and plumb with cabinetry.
The refrigerator must be secured to prevent tipping.

be securely fastened to cabinets on both sides.
• Install four, 1-1/2" drywall screws into the pilot holes.
CAUTION:
The rear leveling wheels and front leveling legs are
limited to a maximum height adjustment of 1". If the
installation requires more than 84-1/2" height, the
installer should elevate the refrigerator on a sheet
of plywood or runners. Cabinetry trim could also be
added across the top of the opening to shorten the
opening. If you attempt to raise the refrigerator
more than 1", you will damage the front leveling
legs and the rear leveling wheels.
PRUDENCE
Les roues de nivellement arrière et les pattes de
nivellement avant permettent un réglage maximal
de 25 mm (1 po). Si l’ouverture pour le réfrigérateur
a une hauteur supérieure à 2,15 m (84-1/2 po),
l’installateur doit élever le réfrigérateur sur une
feuille de contre-plaqué ou des glissières. Il est
également possible d’ajouter des baguettes de
finition des placards sur le haut de l’ouverture afin
de la réduire. Lever le réfrigérateur de plus de
25 mm (1 po) endommage les pattes de nivellement
avant et les roues de nivellement arrière.

• Locate and bring tubing to the front of the cabinet.
• Turn the water on to flush debris from line. Run
about a quart of water through tubing into a bucket,
then shut-off water.
Compare the dispenser trims. Note that the inside
depth of the frames are different. Choose the trim
with less depth for framed panels, choose the
deeper one for overlay panels.
Copper Tubing:
• Slip a 1/4" nut and ferrule (provided) over both
ends of the copper tubing. Insert tube into the
union fitting on the unit and tighten nut to union.
• Turn on the water to check for leaks.
Dispenser trim fit over the custom panel depends on
correct panel thickness. See pages 7 and 8 for panel
construction information.
