Connect Ice-Maker To Water (Contd.) 1. Find a %-inch to 1-inch vertical COLD water pipe near the refrigerator. (Horizontal pipe will work. ..but extra precautions must be taken.) (See * in Step 4.) Connect to unsoftened water line if possible. 2. Measure from inlet on rear of refrigerator to water pipe. Add 7 feet to allow for moving refrigerator for cleaning. This is the length of X-inch O.D. copper tubing you will need for the job (length from inlet tube to water pipe PLUS 7 feet). Be sure both ends of copper tubing are cut square. 3. Turn OFF main water supply. Turn ON nearest faucet long enough to clear line of water. ‘/I” TUBE TO SHUTOFF VALVE 4. Using a grounded drill, drill a %-inch hole in the vertical cold water pipe you have selected. Use of self piercing valve may lead to flow problems in the future. Some water almost always remains in pipes. If it enters the drill, it can cause lethal shock. BE SURE YOUR DRILL IS GROUNDED. CONNECTOR l 5. Fasten a separate ground wire from drill to a good ground that complies to local electrical codes. (If in doubt, consult a licensed electrician.) UNLESS PROPER GROUNDING IS FOLLOWED, YOU ARE NOT PROTECTED AGAINST SEVERE OR LETHAL SHOCK. If you must use a horizontal pipe, take extra precautions: Drill on the top or side of the pipe, not bottom. This helps keep water away from the drill. Also, it keeps normal sediment from collecting in the valve. Fasten shutoff valve to cold water pipe with pipe clamp. Be sureinletend is solidly in the X-inch drilled hole in the water pipe and that washer is under the pipe clamp. Tighten packing nut. Tighten the pipe clamp screws carefully and evenly so washer makes a watertight connection. Do not overtighten or you may crush copper tubing, especially if soft copper tubing is used. Now you are ready to connect the copper tubing. PIPE CLAMP, , /WASHER SHUTOFF VALVE PACKING NUT OFF shutoff valve on the water pipe. You are now ready to connect other end of %-inch copper tubing to inlet tube or water valve on back of refrigerator. 7. Assemble compression nuts on tubing as shown in diagram. Insert ends of tubing into connector and tighten compression nuts. Be sure ends of tubing are squarely in connector as far as they will go. Do not overtiahten.

Copper tubing may now be fastened to baseboard. 11. The Ice Maker has a built-in water strainer on the inlet side of the water valve. Use a second water strainer when local water conditions require periodic cleaning or a well is your source of water. The strainer can be installed in the %-inch water line. Water pressure should not be below (15 PSI.) or above (125 P.S.I.). If problem occurs call your Utility Company. 12. 13. PLUG IN YOUR REFRIGERATOR. When you have your first batch of ice you may throw away extra parts. OUTLET Step 5 and 6 Slip compression nut and compression sleeve on copper tubing as shown in diagram. Insert end of tubing into outlet end squarely as far as it will go. Screw compression nut to outlet end with adjustable wrench. Do not over-tighten. Turn ON main water supply and flush out tubing until water is clear. Turn IMPORTANT: It may take up to 24 hours for your Ice Maker to begin producing ice crescents.
