Installation Requirements
Water Supply Requirements
If the water pressure to the reverse osmosis system is less than
40 to 60 psi (276 to 414 kPa):
ƒƒ All installations must meet local plumbing code requirements.
ƒƒ Check to see whether the sediment filter in the reverse
osmosis system is blocked. Replace the filter if necessary.
ƒƒ The water shutoff should be located in the base cabinet on
either side of the refrigerator or some other easily accessible
area. The right-hand side is recommended. The access hole
through the cabinet must be within ½” (12.7 mm) of the rear
wall.
NOTE: If the water shut off valve is in the back wall behind the
refrigerator, it must be at an angle so that the tube is not kinked
when the refrigerator is pushed into its final position.
Access hole within 1/2”
(12.7 mm) of floor and rear wall
ƒƒ Allow the storage tank on the reverse osmosis system to refill
after heavy usage.
ƒƒ If your refrigerator has a water filter cartridge, it may further
reduce the water pressure when used in conjunction with a
reverse osmosis system. Remove the water filter cartridge.
If you have questions about your water pressure, call a licensed,
qualified plumber.
Tipping Radius
Be sure there is adequate ceiling height to stand the refrigerator
upright when it is moved into place.
ƒƒ The dolly wheel height must be added to the tipping radius
when a dolly is used.
Possible water
line locations
ƒƒ If needed, the tipping radius can be reduced. See Reduce
Tipping Radius.
Side Tipping Radius
6"

(2.54 cm)
6"
(15.2 cm)
The side tipping radius varies depending upon the width of the
model. Use the chart provided to determine the side tipping
radius.
NOTE: Tip on side only.
ƒƒ If the water shutoff valve is not in the cabinets, the plumbing
for the water line can come through the floor. A ½” (12.7 mm)
hole for plumbing should be drilled at least 6” (15.2 cm) from
the right or left hand side cabinet or panel. On the floor, the
hole should be no more than 1” (2.54 cm) away from the back
wall. See Connect the Water Supply.
ƒƒ If additional tubing is needed, use copper tubing and check
for leaks. Install the copper tubing only in areas where the
household temperatures will remain above freezing.
ƒƒ Do not use a piercing-type or ³⁄16” (4.76 mm) saddle valve
which reduces water flow and clogs more easily.
NOTE: Your refrigerator dealer has a kit available with a ¼” (6.35
mm) saddle-type shutoff valve, a union and copper tubing. Before
purchasing, make sure a saddle-type valve complies with your
local plumbing codes.
Water Pressure
A cold water supply with water pressure between 30 and 120 psi
(207 and 827 kPa) is required to operate the water dispenser and
ice maker. If you have questions about your water pressure, call a
licensed, qualified plumber.

Reverse Osmosis Water Supply
IMPORTANT: The pressure of the water supply coming out of
a reverse osmosis system going to the water inlet valve of the
refrigerator needs to be between 30 and 120 psi (207 and 827
kPa). If a reverse osmosis water filtration system is connected
to your cold water supply, the water pressure to the reverse
osmosis system needs to be a minimum of 40 to 60 psi (276 to
414 kPa).

Custom Panels and Handles - IF42/IF48 Series Models
IMPORTANT:
Custom overlay panels used with models IF42 and IF48 allow you
to blend the exterior of your refrigerator into the overall kitchen
décor, and to use custom handles for additional design flexibility.
Install the panels after moving the refrigerator into
place (page 17) .
The custom panels must have backer panels attached in order
to mount them to the refrigerator. It is most common to work with
three panels, as shown in the graphic below. A decorative overlay
panel, a ¹/8” (3.18 mm) spacer panel or spacer strips and a ¼”
(6.35 mm) backer panel.
The weight of the overlay panels cannot exceed:
ƒƒ 50 lbs (23 kg) for the refrigerator door.
ƒƒ 30 lbs (13.5 kg) for the freezer door.
ƒƒ 10 lbs (4.5 kg) for the top grille.
Overlay Panel
Spacer Panel
To minimize panel weight, you may use 2” (5.08 cm) spacer strips
around the perimeter in place of full-sheet solid spacer panels.
The spacer strips must be set in at least 1” (2.54 cm) from the
top, bottom and sides edges of the backer panel. If you use
spacer strips, it is also recommended that you use two 2” (5.08
cm) strips horizontally centered for added support.
Spacer Panel

Installation Instructions
Install Anti-Tip Boards
Connect the Water Supply
IMPORTANT:
Read all directions before you begin.
ƒƒ To avoid tipping during use, the solid soffit must be within 1”
(2.5 cm) maximum above the refrigerator. If the solid soffit
is higher than 1” (2.5 cm) or one is not available, then the
refrigerator must be braced.
IMPORTANT: If you turn the refrigerator on before the water line
is connected, turn the ice maker OFF.
ƒƒ It is recommended that board(s) be installed before the
refrigerator is installed.
NOTE: If your water line connection does not look like Style 1,
see Style 2 - Copper Line Connection.
ƒƒ Board(s) must be long enough to fully cover the width of the
compressor cover.
1. Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power supply.
ƒƒ Locate the board(s) so the bottom surface(s) of the board(s) is
(are) 84” (213 cm) from the floor.
ƒƒ During installation, raise the refrigerator up so there is ¼” (6.35
mm) maximum between the top of the refrigerator and the
bottom of the anti-tip board(s). Do not crush the compressor
cover when raising the rear leveling legs.
To Install Anti-tip Boards
1. Mark the stud locations on rear wall 80” to 90” (203 cm to 229
cm) above floor.
2. Securely attach one or two 2” x 4” x 32” (5 cm x 10 cm x 81
cm) boards to wall studs behind refrigerator. Use six #8 x 3”
(7.6 cm) (or longer) wood screws. The wood screws must be
screwed into the studs at least 1½” (3.8 cm). The board(s)
must overlap the compressor cover.

Style 1 - Shutoff Valve Connection
IMPORTANT: Before attaching the tubing to shutoff valve, flush
the main water supply line to remove particles and air in the water
line. Allow enough flow so that water becomes clear. Flushing
the water line may help avoid filters and/or water valves from
becoming clogged.
2. Remove the shipping tape from the gray, coiled water tubing
on the rear of the refrigerator.
3. Thread the provided
nut onto the shutoff
valve as shown.
4. Turn shutoff valve
ON.
5. Check for leaks.
Tighten any nuts
or connections
(including
connections at the
valve) that leak.

1. Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power.
2. Turn OFF main water supply. Turn ON nearest faucet long
enough to clear line of water.
3. Locate a ½” to 1¼” (1.25 cm to 3.18 cm) vertical cold water
pipe near the refrigerator.
IMPORTANT:
ƒƒ Make sure it is a cold water pipe.
ƒƒ Horizontal pipe will work, but drill on the top side of the pipe,
not the bottom. Doing so will help keep water away from the
drill and normal sediment from collecting in the valve.
4. Determine the length of copper tubing you need. Measure
from the connection on the lower left rear of refrigerator to
the water pipe. Add 7 ft. (2.1 m) to allow for cleaning. Use ¼”
(6.35 mm) O.D. (outside diameter) copper tubing. Be sure both
ends of copper tubing are cut square.

clamp. Be sure the outlet end is solidly in the ¼” (6.35 mm)
drilled hole in the water pipe and that the washer is under the
pipe clamp. Tighten the packing nut. Tighten the pipe clamp
screws slowly and evenly so the washer makes a watertight
seal. Do not overtighten, or you may crush the copper tubing.
7. Slip the compression sleeve and compression nut on the
copper tubing as shown. Insert the end of the tubing into the
outlet end squarely as far as it will go. Screw compression nut
onto outlet end with adjustable wrench. Do not overtighten the
clamp or the sleeve. Doing so will crush the copper tubing.
IMPORTANT: Before attaching the tubing to shutoff valve,
flush the main water supply line to remove particles and air in
the water line. Allow enough flow so that water becomes clear.
Flushing the water line may help avoid filters and/or water
valves from becoming clogged.
8. Turn off the shutoff valve on the water pipe. Coil the copper
tubing.
9. Check for leaks around the saddle valve.
