FLOORING

For proper installation, this refrigerator must be placed on a level surface of hard material that is at the same height as the rest of the flooring. This surface should be strong enough to support a fully loaded refrigerator, or approximately 1,200 lbs.

NOTE: Protect the finish of the flooring. Cut a large section of the cardboard carton and place under the refrigerator where you are working.

GROUNDING THE REFRIGERATOR

IMPORTANT—(Please read carefully)

FOR PERSONAL SAFETY, THIS APPLIANCE MUST BE

PROPERLY GROUNDED.

The power cord of this appliance is equipped with a 3-prong (grounding) plug which mates with a standard three-prong (grounding) wall receptacle to minimize the possibility of electric shock hazard from this appliance.

Have the wall outlet and circuit checked by a qualified electrician to make sure the outlet is properly grounded.

Where a standard 2-prong wall outlet is encountered, it is your personal responsibility and obligation to have it replaced with a properly grounded 3-prong wall outlet.

DO NOT, UNDER ANY

CIRCUMSTANCES, CUT

OR REMOVE THE THIRD

(GROUND) PRONG FROM

THE POWER CORD.

DO NOT USE AN ADAPTER PLUG TO CONNECT THE

REFRIGERATOR TO A 2-PRONG OUTLET.

DO NOT USE AN EXTENSION CORD WITH THIS

APPLIANCE.

Installation Instructions

STEP 1 REMOVE PACKAGING

CAUTION:

Refrigerator is much heavier at the top than at the bottom—be careful when moving. When using a hand truck, handle from 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 outer carton.

• Slide out back corner posts (2).

• Slide carton off top of cabinet.

NOTE: IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO LAY CABINET DOWN IN

ORDER TO REMOVE SKID!

• The unit is secured to the skid with 4 slotted tie-down straps. Remove the four 5/16 ″ bolts from the base channels in the tie-downs.

• 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 refrigerator and slide blocks out from beneath.

• Remove toekick. Set aside for final installation.

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

STEP 2 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.

• 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

15 ′ (4.6 m) WX08X10015

25 ′ (7.6 m) WX08X10025

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.

Floor

Waterline Tubing

• Turn on the main water supply and flush debris.

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

NOTE: Saddle type shut-off valves are included in many water supply kits, but are not recommended for this application.

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.

Installation Instructions

STEP 2A WATER LINE INSTALLATION WITH

A REVERSE OSMOSIS SYSTEM

Skip this step when not using an RO System

If the water supply to the refrigerator is from a Reverse

Osmosis Water System, use the refrigerator’s filter bypass plug. Using the refrigerator’s water filtration cartridge with the RO filter can result in hollow ice cubes.

STEP 4 INSTALL ANTI-TIP BRACKETS

WARNING:

ANTI-TIP PRECAUTIONS

The refrigerator is top-heavy and must be secured to prevent the possibility of tipping forward.

ATTENTION:

PRECAUTIONS CONTRE LES

BASCULEMENTS

Le réfrigérateur est beaucoup plus lourd en haut et il faut le maintenir en place pour éviter la possibilité de son basculement vers l’avant.

• Cut a 2

• Screws must penetrate at least one inch into vertical wall studs.

• Before pushing the refrigerator into the opening, plug the power cord into the receptacle. Open the grille panel and reach into the opening at the back to grasp the power cord. Pull the power cord into the opening as you push the refrigerator back.

• 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 5 to level the refrigerator and then to step 6 to secure refrigerator to cabinets. The refrigerator must be secured to prevent tipping.

11

Installation Instructions

STEP 5 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 6 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.

Leveling Leg

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.

Install Four

1-1/2" Drywall Screws

Through Trim and Into Soffit or 3/4" Min. Wood Brace

• Raise the grille panel to access case trim.

• Use a 3/16 ″ bit to drill four evenly spaced clearance holes through the metal top case trim.

• Use a 1/16

″ bit to drill to pilot holes through the metal clearance holes and into the wood soffit. The holes should be centered in the soffit or a 3/4 ″ min. wood brace. The brace spanning the enclosure must be securely fastened to cabinets on both sides.

• Install four, 1-1/2

″ drywall screws into the pilot holes.

STEP 7 SECURE REFRIGERATOR

TO CABINETRY

Whenever possible, perform this step for anti-tip security, or when anti-tip brackets cannot be used.

The refrigerator must be secured to prevent tipping.

• Raise the grille panel to access case trim.

• Drill hole in trim and drive screw through the trim into adjacent cabinet.

• Follow the same procedure on the opposite side.

• Lift the grille panel to access the wire cover trim.

• Remove screws on both sides of the wire cover trim and lift off.

• Use pliers to unscrew door stop and reinstall into the
