WARNING: Do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of
unknown quality without adequate disinfection before or after the system. Systems
certified for cyst reduction may be used on disinfected waters that may contain
filterable cysts.
CAUTION: This filter must be protected from freezing, which can cause cracking of
the filter and water leakage.

CAUTION: Because of the product’s limited service life and to prevent costly
repairs or possible water damage, we strongly recommend that the head of the filter be
replaced every ten years. If the head of your filter has been in use for longer than this
period, it should be replaced immediately. Date the top of any new head to indicate the
next recommended replacement date.
CAUTION: Turn off water supply to head without cartridge if it must be left
unattended for an extended period of time.
Optional Materials
•
tape measure
pencil
safety glasses
•
T-Flush valve (Model FVK-100*)
Recommended when used with an
icemaker that is not in combination
with a water dispenser. This valve is
installed after the filter, so the filter
can be flushed to remove carbon fines
or release pressure before removing
cartridge. See Diagram below.
NOTE:
•
For cold water use only.
•
Make certain that installation complies with all state and local laws and regulations.
•
The contaminants or other substances removed or reduced by the selected cartridge
are not necessarily in your water.
•
After prolonged periods of non-use (such as during a vacation) it is recommended
that the system be flushed thoroughly. Let water run for 10 minutes before using.
•
The filter cartridges used with this system have a limited service life. Changes in
taste, odor, and/or flow of the water being filtered indicate that the cartridge should
be replaced.
*Not Performance Tested or Certified by NSF.

Installation

•
For standard installation on 1/4-inch plastic hose cold water line.
•
Please read all instructions and precautions before installing and using your IC-EZ water dispenser
Icemaker Filter
•
Numbered diagrams correspond with numbered steps
•
Instructions refer to standard installation on existing water line to refrigerator. Before installation, make
sure there is enough slack in existing water line to allow refrigerator to be moved out from the wall.
1. Mounting the Filter System
NOTE: Before starting installation, turn off the icemaker in the refrigerator and store the ice cubes in a
clean container in the freezer.
NOTE: Filter should not be more than 3 feet from the appliance.
NOTE: Allow 1-1/2-inches (38 mm) clearance below housing or 12-inches (305 mm) below filter head to
enable filter cartridge changes.
CAUTION: Filter head should be mounted on stud or firm surface. The mounting bracket will support
the weight of the filter and help prevent strain on the cold water line.
1B
1C
Wood
Block
Cabinet Wall
WARNING: DO NOT screw mounting bracket directly onto the refrigerator.
CAUTION: Water supply to the refrigerator should have a separate shut off valve installed before filter.
If it does not, a separate shutoff should be installed
A) Turn off the cold water supply to the refrigerator and dispense the water from the refrigerator door
until water flow stops to release the pressure in the pipes before starting installation. Place a tray
or towels under the cold water line to catch the excess water after the pipes are cut.
B) Select location under sink, in basement or near refrigerator where filter is to be mounted. If filter
assembly is mounted on a side wall next to drawers, remove drawers. Cabinet wall may be too
thin to support filter assembly. We recommend that a 3" x 3" x 1/2" wood block be used on the
back side of the cabinet to allow the screws to penetrate through the cabinet and into the wood
block. This will allow the filter assembly to be fully supported. Using the filter head assembly as a
template, drill two 1/4-inch holes in the side wall. Position the block of wood behind these two
holes and drill two 1/8-inch holes into the block. Use the two screws provided to mount filter
assembly head to side wall and on the block of wood.

Outlet
C) Filter head should be mounted in vertical position. Use mounting bracket as a template to mark
screw locations. Mount filter head in marked location using screws.
2. Cutting or Disconnecting the Tubing
A) Use a 7 to 8 foot coil (3 coils, approximately 10” diameter) of plastic tubing between the outlet
of the filter and the refrigerator.
B) Determine the length of plastic tubing needed to connect the inlet and outlet of filter.
C) Using a utility knife; cleanly cut tubing. Leave a minimum of 2-inches (51 mm) of tubing after
shut-off valve in case tubing must be re-cut at a later time.
3. Connecting the Tubing and Fittings
NOTE: If the water cannot be flushed through an existing water dispenser, install T-Flush valve first and
then connect the outlet of the filter the same as step 3A. See Page 1 for a T-Flush valve diagram.
A) Connecting the Inlet. Assemble fittings as shown, by inserting tube 5/8-inch (16 mm) into inlet
fitting of head.

4. Installing the Cartridge
A) Hold cartridge from the bottom when installing or changing the cartridge. Use caution not to scrape
knuckles on bracket when locking the cartridge into place.

B) (B) Line up the arrow on the cartridge with unlocked padlock on head. Insert cartridge and turn
arrow to locked padlock. See Diagrams R2 and R3.
5. Putting the Filter into Operation
NOTE: A drinking water cartridge may contain carbon fines (very fine black powder). If your icemaker
contains black carbon fines, discard ice.
b
A) Turn on water supply to allow filter to fill with water. Check for leaks. If it leaks, see
Troubleshooting.
B) Flush filter for 10 minutes through the water dispenser or if appliance is equipped with only an
icemaker, through the T-Valve, and discard water.
C) Turn on icemaker.
a
R3
D) Check for leaks before leaving installation. If it leaks, see Troubleshooting.
E) Installation is complete.
a
Filter Cartridge Replacement
NOTE: It is recommended that the EZ-1 filter be replaced every year and the EZ-3/EZ-4 filters every 6
months, or when you notice a change in taste, odor, or flow of the water being filtered.
1) Relieve Water Pressure
A) Relieve pressure by turning off water supply to the filter and dispense water from water
dispenser or T-flush valve until water flow stops.
b
2) Remove Old Cartridge
NOTE: Place towel under the system to catch any water drips.
A) Turn arrow from locked to unlocked position.
B) Gently pull down to remove cartridge.
3) Install New Cartridge
A) Line up arrow with unlocked position on head and insert cartridge.
B) Turn to locked position.
C) Turn on water and check for leaks. If it leaks, see Troubleshooting.
D) Flush water through water dispenser or T-Flush valve for 10 minutes to remove carbon fines.
Check for leaks before leaving installation. If it leaks, see Troubleshooting.

Relieve pressure by turning off water supply to the filter and dispense water through
the refrigerator door or T-Flush valve until water and airflow stops. Press in the gray
collar around the fitting while pulling the tubing with the other hand. Check if tubing is
cut squarely or scratched. If tubing is scratched or uneven, cut off 1/2” to 5/8” and
re-install tubing per step 3 of installation instructions. Open the water supply valve. If
the leaks persist, or if there are other leaks on the unit, turn off the water supply and
icemaker, then call Technical Support at 1-800-721-9243. If the fitting does not leak,
turn on the icemaker.
