Ice Maker to Water Supply
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.
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.
l
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 %-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.
‘1’4”TUBE TO
SHUTOFF VALVE
Turn OFF main water supply. Turn ON nearest faucet
long enough to clear line of water.

5.
Assemble compression nuts on tubing as shown in
diagram. Insert ends of tubing into connector and
tightencompression
nuts. Be sure ends of tubing are
squarely in connector as far as they will go. Do not
over-tighten.
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.
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 %-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.

Copper tubing may now be fastened to baseboard.

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.
11.
Water pressure should not be below (15 %.I.) or
above (125 P.S.I.). If problem occurs call your Utility
Company.

Slip compression nut and compression sleeve on
copper tubing as shown in diagram. Insert end of
