Installation Instructions

STEP 1 REMOVE PACKAGING

CAUTION:

The refrigerator is much heavier at the top than at the bottom—be careful when moving.

When using a hand truck, handle from the side only.

PRUDENCE:

Le réfrigérateur est beaucoup plus lourd en haut qu’en bas. Il faut être prudent lors des déplacements. Si un diable est utilisé, il faut soulever le réfrigérateur sur le côté seulement.

• Carefully cut banding at the top and bottom, remove the outer carton.

• Slide out the back corner posts (2).

• Slide the carton off the top of the cabinet.

NOTE: IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO LAY THE CABINET DOWN

IN ORDER TO REMOVE THE SKID!

• The unit is secured to the skid with 4 slotted tie-down straps. Remove the six 7/16" bolts from the base channels in the tie-downs.

• Remove the six 7/16" bolts securing the straps to the skid.

CAUTION:

DO NOT

PALETTE.

• The support blocks on the bottom of the refrigeration case must be removed before the refrigerator is taken off the skid or damage will occur. Carefully tilt the refrigerator and slide the blocks out from beneath.

• Remove the toekick and set aside for final installation.

• Lift the refrigerator off the skid with an appliance dolly. Handle from the sides.

STEP 2 MOVE THE REFRIGERATOR INTO THE HOUSE

• Re-use the corner posts from the packaging to protect stainless steel models. Run the appliance dolly straps over the posts and under the handles.

• Leave the protective film on the refrigerator until installation is complete.

IMPORTANT: Never lift the refrigerator by the handle or push against the grill panel; this could cause damage or misalignment.

• Avoid laying the unit on its back or side to prevent sealed system restrictions.

STEP 3 INSTALL WATER LINE

• A cold water supply is required for automatic icemaker operation. The water pressure must be 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.

• The tubing should be long enough to extend to the front of the refrigerator. Allow enough tubing to accommodate the 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

Installation Instructions

STEP 3 (continued)

Shut off the main water supply.

Turn on the nearest faucet long enough to clear the line of water.

• Install a shut-off valve between the icemaker water valve and cold water pipe in a basement or cabinet.

The shut-off valve should be located where it will be easily accessible.

• Turn on the main water supply and flush debris.

Run about a quart of water through the tubing into a bucket. Shut off the water supply at the shut-off valve.

NOTE: Saddle type shut-off valves are included in many water supply kits. Before purchasing, make sure a saddle type valve complies with your local plumbing codes.

NOTE: Commonwealth of Massachusetts Plumbing

Codes 248CMR shall be adhered to. Saddle valves are illegal and use is not permitted in Massachusetts.

Consult with your licensed plumber.

• Gently push refrigerator into the opening with hands against front corners.

IMPORTANT NOTE: When the refrigerator is installed under a soffit or if there is not enough height for this method of security, brackets cannot be used. Proceed to step 7 to level the refrigerator and then to step 9 to secure refrigerator to cabinets. See step 8 if you have metal wall studs. The refrigerator must be secured to prevent tipping.

Installation Instructions

STEP 7 LEVEL REFRIGERATOR

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.

STEP 8 ALTERNATE ANTI-TIP

PROCEDURE

The refrigerator must be secured to prevent tipping.

The anti-tip brackets cannot be used on metal wall studs. Use this Alternate Procedure to secure the refrigerator against tip-over whenever metal wall studs are encountered and there is no soffit.

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. Make adjustments in small increments.

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.
