Feed water tube installation
Before
Installation
Automatic icemaker operation needs water pressure of 21.3~121psi is too
much(lb/inch2) (That a 7 ounce paper cup will fill within 3 sec.).
2
If the water pressure does not reach 21.3psi(lb/inch ), it is necessary to purchase a
separate pressure pump for the cool water feed.
Keep the total length of the water feed tube less than 40 feet and be careful not to
bend or kink the tube. If the tube is longer than 40 feet, the icemaker and water
dispenser will not operate properly.
Install the water feed tube away from any heat sources.

IMPORTANT
Tools Required
•
If operating the refrigerator before installing the water connection, turn icemaker
to the OFF position to prevent operation without water.
•
All installations must be in accordance with local plumbing code requirements.
•
Use copper tubing and check for leaks.
•
Install copper tubing only in areas where temperatures will remain above freezing.
•
It may take up to 24 hours for your icemaker to begin producing ice.
Standard screwdriver
7/16-inch and 1/2-inch open-end wrenches or two adjustable wrenches
1/4-inch nut driver
1/4-inch drill bit
Hand drill or electric drill (properly grounded)
NOTE
•
Cold Water Supply
Your refrigerator dealer has a kit available with a 1/4-inch saddle-type shut-off valve,
a union, and copper tubing. Before purchasing, make sure a saddle-type valve
complies with your local plumbing codes. Do not use a piercing-type or 3/16-inch
saddle valve which reduces water flow and clogs more easily.
The icemaker water valve contains a flow washer which is used as a water
pressure regulator.
The icemaker needs to be connected to a cold water line with water pressure
21.3~121psi(lb/inch2)
8
Installation
Connect
the Tubing to
Water Line
1. Unplug refrigerator or disconnect power.
2. Turn off the main water supply. Turn on the nearest faucet to relieve the
pressure on the line. It may help to open an outside faucet to allow the water to
drain from the line in the house.
3. Find a 1/2-inch to 1-1/4-inch vertical COLD water pipe near the refrigerator.
NOTE
•
Horizontal pipe will work, but the following precaution must be taken: Drill on the top of
the pipe, not the bottom. This will help keep water away from the drill. This also keeps
normal sediment from collecting in the valve.
4. To determine the length of copper tubing you will need, measure from the
connection on the lower left rear of the refrigerator to the water pipe. Add 7
feet (2.1m) to allow for moving refrigerator for cleaning. Use 1/4-inch O.D.
(outside diameter) copper tubing. Be sure both ends of copper tubing are cut
square.
5. Using a drill, drill a 1/4-inch hole in the cold water pipe you have selected.
6. Fasten the shut-off valve to cold water a pipe with pipe clamp. Be sure outlet
end is securely in the 1/4-inch drilled hole and the washer is under the pipe
clamp. Tighten the packing nut. Tighten the pipe clamp screws carefully and
evenly so the washer makes a watertight seal. Do not overtighten or you may
crush the copper tubing, especially if soft (coiled) copper tubing is used. Now
you are ready to connect the copper tubing.
7. Slip the compression sleeve and compression nut onto the copper tubing as
shown. Insert end of the tubing into outlet end squarely as far as it will go.
Screw compression nut onto the outlet end with an adjustable wrench. Do not
over tighten.
8. Place the free end of the tubing into a container or sink, and turn ON main
water supply. Flush out tubing until water is clear. Turn OFF the shutoff valve
on the water pipe. Coil the copper tubing as shown below.

Cautions
Keep children away from the dispenser.
Children may play with or damage the controls.
Be careful that food does not block the ice passage.
If foods are placed at the entrance of ice passage,
the dispenser may malfunction. The passage may
also become blocked with frost if only crushed ice
is used. Remove the frost that accumulates.
Storing cans or other items in the ice bin may
damage the icemaker or the container may burst.
Never use thin crystal glass or crockery to collect
ice.
Such glasses or containers may be broken.
Put ice first into a glass before filling water or other beverages.
Water may be splashed if ice is added to existing liquid in a glass.
Keep your hands and tools out of the ice door and passage.
You might break something or injure yourself.
Never remove the ice maker cover.
Shake the ice bin occasionally to level the ice in it.
Sometimes the ice piles up near the icemaker, causing the icemaker to misread the
bin level and stop producing ice.
If discolored ice or water is dispensed, contact an Authorized service center
immediately and discontinue use until the problem is corrected.
Never use too narrow or deep glass.
Ice may be jammed in ice passage and, thus, the refrigerator may be failed.
Keep the glass at a proper distance from ice outlet.
A glass too close to the outlet may hinder ice from coming out.

Suggestion on Food Storage
Storing Foods
Store fresh food in the refrigerator compartment. How food is frozen and thawed is an
important factor in maintaining its freshness and flavor.
Do not store food which spoils easily at low temperatures, such as bananas and
melons.
Allow hot food to cool prior to storing, placing hot food in the refrigerator could spoil
other food, and lead to higher energy consumption.
When storing the food, cover it with vinyl wrap or store in a container with a lid. This
prevents moisture from evaporating, and helps food to keep its taste and nutrients.
Do not block air vents with food. Smooth circulation of chilled air keeps refrigerator
temperatures even.
Do not open the door frequently. Opening the door lets warm air enter the refrigerator,
and cause temperatures to rise.
Never keep too much food in door rack because they may push against by inner racks
so that the door cannot be fully closed.
Freezer
Compartment
Refrigerator
Compartment
Do not store bottles in the freezer compartment - they may break when frozen.
Do not refreeze food that has been thawed. This causes loss of taste and nutrient.
When storing frozen food like ice cream for a long period, place it on the freezer
shelf, not in the door rack.
Avoid placing moist food in top refrigerator shelves, it could freeze from direct
contact with chilled air.
Always clean food prior to refrigeration. Vegetables and fruits should be washed and
wiped, and packed food should be wiped, to prevent adjacent food from spoiling.
When storing eggs in their storage rack or box, ensure that they are fresh, and always
store them in an upright position, which keeps them fresh longer.
NOTE
•
24
If you keep the refrigerator in a hot and humid place, frequent opening of the door or
storing a lot of vegetables in it may cause condensation to form which has no effect
on its performance. Remove the condensation with a cloth.

Care and Maintenance
General Information
Vacation Time
During average length vacations, you will probably find it best to leave the refrigerator
in operation. Place freezable items in freezer for longer life.
When you plan to store the refrigerator, remove all food, disconnect the power cord,
clean the interior thoroughly, and block the doors open to prevent mold and mildew.
Be certain the stored refrigerator does not present a child entrapment danger.
Power Failure
Most power failures that are corrected in an hour or two will not affect your
refrigerator temperatures.
However, you should minimize the number of door openings while the power is off.
If You Move
Remove or securely fasten down all loose items inside the refrigerator.
To avoid damaging the height adjusting screws, turn them all the way into the base.
The outside wall of the refrigerator cabinet may sometimes get warm, especially just
after installation.
Don’t be alarmed. This is due to the anti-condensation pipe, which pumps hot
refrigerant to prevent sweating on the outer cabinet wall.
AntiCondensation
Pipe
Cleaning
It is important that your refrigerator be kept clean to prevent undesirable odors. Spilled
food should be wiped up immediately, since it may acidify and stain plastic surfaces if
allowed to settle.
Exterior
Use a lukewarm solution of mild soap or detergent to clean the durable finish of your
refrigerator. Wipe with a clean damp cloth and then dry.
Interior
Regular cleaning is recommended. Wash all compartments with a baking soda
solution or a mild detergent and warm water. Rinse and dry.
After Cleaning
Please verify that the power cord is not damaged, power plug is not overheated, and
the power plug is well inserted into the power outlet.
Warning
Always remove the power cord from the wall outlet prior to cleaning in the vicinity of
electrical parts (lamps, switches, controls, etc.).
Wipe up excess moisture with a sponge or cloth to prevent water or liquid from
getting into any electrical part and causing an electric shock.
Never use metallic scouring pads, brushes, coarse abrasive cleaners, strong alkaline
solutions, flammable or toxic cleaning liquids on any surface.
Do not touch frozen surfaces with wet or damp hands, because damp object will stick
or adhere to extremely cold surfaces.
