Follow these instructions carefully to minimize the risk of expensive water damage. If necessary, call a qualified plumber to correct water hammer before installing the water supply line to the refrigerator. Water banging in the pipes, or water hammer in residential plumbing can cause damage to refrigerator parts and lead to water leakage or flooding. ••Turn the icemaker OFF if the refrigerator will be used before the water line is connected. ••Do not install the icemaker tubing in areas where the ambient temperatures fall below freezing. WARNING ••Connect to potable water supply only. CAUTION ••To prevent burns and product damage, only connect the refrigerator water line to a cold water supply. ••Wear eye protection during installation to prevent injury. Water Pressure If the water pressure from the reverse osmosis system is less than 20 psi or 138 kPa or 1.4 kgf/ cm2 (takes more than 4 seconds to fill a cup of 7 oz or 198 cc capacity): ••Check to see if the sediment filter in the reverse osmosis system is blocked. Replace the filter if necessary. ••Allow the storage tank on the reverse osmosis system to refill after heavy usage. ••If the water pressure remains low, call a licensed, qualified plumber. ••All installations must be in accordance with local plumbing code requirements. Supplies Needed ••Copper or PEX Tubing, ¼ in. outer diameter, to connect the refrigerator to the water supply. Be sure both ends of the tubing are cut square. To determine how much tubing you need, measure the distance from the water valve on the back of the refrigerator to the water supply pipe. Then, add 8 feet (2.4 m). Be sure there is sufficient extra tubing (about 8 feet [2.4 m] coiled into 3 turns of about 10 in. [25 cm] diameter) to allow the refrigerator to move out from the wall after installation. ••Power drill. ••½ in. or adjustable wrench. ••Flat-blade and Phillips-head screwdrivers. ••Two ¼ in. outer diameter compression nuts and 2 ferrules (sleeves) to connect the copper tubing to the shutoff valve and the refrigerator water valve. You will need a cold water supply. Water Pressure models with water filter 20–120 psi (138 - 827 kPa) where reverse osmosis water filtration system is connected to a cold water supply 40–60 psi minimum to reverse osmosis system (2.8 – 4.2 kgf/cm2,or less than 2–3 seconds to fill a cup of 7 oz capacity) ••If your existing copper water line has a flared fitting at the end, purchase an adapter (available at plumbing supply stores) to connect the water line to the refrigerator OR cut off the flared fitting with a tube cutter and then use a compression fitting. 24 INSTALLATION ••Shutoff valve to connect to the cold water line. The shutoff valve should have a water inlet with a minimum inside diameter of 5/32 in. at the point of connection to the COLD WATER LINE. Saddle-type shutoff valves are included in many water supply kits. Before purchasing, make sure a saddle-type valve complies with your local plumbing codes. NOTE ••A self-piercing saddle type water valve should not be used. Water Line Installation Instructions WARNING 3 NOTE ••The hookup line cannot be white, plastic tubing. Licensed plumbers must use only copper tubing (NDA tubing #49595 or #49599) or Cross Link Polyethylene (PEX) tubing. 4 Electric Shock Hazard: ••When using any electrical device (such as a power drill) during installation, be sure the device is battery-powered, double-insulated or grounded in a manner that will prevent the hazard of electric shock. 2 Shut off the main water supply. Turn on the nearest faucet to relieve the pressure on the line. Choose the valve location. Choose a location for the valve that is easily accessible. It is best to connect into the side of a vertical water pipe. When it is necessary to connect into a horizontal water pipe, make the connection to the top or side, rather than at the bottom, to avoid drawing off any sediment from the water pipe. Fasten the shutoff valve. Fasten the shutoff valve to the cold water pipe with the pipe clamp. Pipe Clamp Install the shutoff valve on the nearest frequently used drinking water line. 1 Drill the hole for the valve. ••Drill a ¼ in. hole in the water pipe using a sharp bit. Remove any burrs resulting from drilling the hole in the pipe. Be careful not to allow water to drain into the drill. Failure to drill a ¼ in. hole may result in reduced ice production or smaller cubes. Saddle-Type Shutoff Valve Vertical Cold Water Pipe 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. 5 Tighten the pipe clamp. Tighten the clamp screws until the sealing washer begins to swell. Inlet End Pipe Clamp Washer Clamp Screw NOTE ••Do not over tighten clamp or you may crush the tubing. INSTALLATION 25 6 Route the tubing. Route the tubing between the cold water line and the refrigerator. Route the tubing through a hole drilled in the wall or floor (behind the refrigerator or adjacent base cabinet) as close to the wall as possible. NOTE ••Be sure there is sufficient extra tubing (about 8 ft. coiled into three turns of about 10 in. diameter) to allow the refrigerator to move out from the wall after installation. 7 Connect the tubing to the valve. Place the compression nut and ferrule (sleeve) for copper tubing onto the end of the tubing and connect it to the shutoff valve. Make sure the tubing is fully inserted into the valve. Tighten the compression nut securely. 9 Connect the tubing to the refrigerator. NOTE ••Before making the connection to the refrigerator, be sure that the refrigerator power cord is not plugged into the wall outlet. ••Remove the plastic flexible cap from the water valve. ••Place the compression nut and ferrule (sleeve) onto the end of the tubing as shown. ••Insert the end of the copper tubing into the connection as far as possible. While holding the tubing, tighten the fitting. Tubing Clamp ¼ in. Tubing ¼ in. Compression Nut Ferrule (sleeve) Saddle-Type Shutoff Valve 10 Turn the water on at the shutoff valve. Packing Nut Outlet Valve 8 Refrigerator Connection Compression Nut Tighten any connections that leak. Ferrule (sleeve) Flush out the tubing. Turn the main water supply on and flush out the tubing until the water is clear. Shut the water off at the water valve after about one quart of water has been flushed through the tubing. CAUTION ••Check for leaks at all water line connections. 26 INSTALLATION Leveling and Door Alignment Leveling The refrigerator has two front leveling legs. Adjust the legs to alter the tilt from front-to-back or side-to side. If the refrigerator seems unsteady, or the doors do not close easily, adjust the refrigerator’s tilt using the instructions below: 1 Turn the leveling leg to the left to raise that side of the refrigerator or to the right to lower it. It may take several turns of the leveling leg to adjust the tilt of the refrigerator. NOTE ••A flare nut wrench works best, but an open-end wrench will suffice. Do not over-tighten. 2 Open both doors and check to make sure that they close easily. If the doors do not close easily, tilt the refrigerator slightly more to the rear by turning both leveling legs to the left. It may take several more turns, and be sure to turn both leveling legs the same amount. Door Alignment Standard Door Both the left and right refrigerator doors have an adjustable nut, located on the bottom hinge, to raise and lower them to align properly. If the space between the doors is uneven, follow the instructions below to align the doors evenly: Use the wrench (included with the owner's manual) to turn the nut in the door hinge to adjust the height.

Contents may expand when frozen, break the container and cause injury. Food Storage Tips Wrap or store food in the refrigerator in airtight and moisture-proof material unless otherwise noted. This prevents food odor and taste transfer throughout the refrigerator. For dated products, check date code to ensure freshness. Food How to Butter or Margarine Keep opened butter in covered dish or closed compartment. When storing an extra supply, wrap in freezer packaging and freeze. Cheese Store in original wrapping until used. Once opened, rewrap tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil. Milk Wipe milk cartons. For coldest milk, place containers on an interior shelf. Eggs Store in original carton on interior shelf, not on door shelf. Fruit Do not wash or hull fruit until it is ready to be used. Sort and keep fruit in original container in a crisper, or store in completely closed paper bag on refrigerator shelf. ••Wash food before storing it in the refrigerator. Vegetables should be washed, and food packaging should be wiped down to prevent adjacent foods from being contaminated. Leafy Vegetables ••If the refrigerator is kept in a hot and humid place, frequent opening of the door or storing a lot of vegetables in the refrigerator may cause condensation to form. Wipe off the condensation with a clean cloth or a paper towel. Remove store wrapping, trim or tear off bruised and discolored areas, wash in cold water, and drain. Place in plastic bag or plastic container and store in crisper. Vegetables with skins (carrots, peppers) Place in plastic bags or plastic container and store in crisper. ••If the refrigerator door or freezer drawer is opened or closed too often, warm air may penetrate the refrigerator and raise its temperature. This can increase the running costs of the unit. Fish Freeze fresh fish and shellfish if they are not being eaten the same day purchased. Eating fresh fish and shellfish the same day purchased is recommended. Leftovers Cover leftovers with plastic wrap or aluminum foil, or store in plastic containers with tight lids. NOTE ••If you are leaving home for a short period, like a short vacation, the refrigerator should be left on. Refrigerated foods that are able to be frozen will stay preserved longer if stored in the freezer. ••If you are leaving the refrigerator turned off for an extended period, remove all food and unplug the power cord. Clean the interior, and leave the door open to prevent fungi from growing in the refrigerator. ••Do not store food with high moisture content towards the top of the refrigerator. The moisture could come in direct contact with the cold air and freeze. 38 OPERATION Storing Frozen Food Do not use Check a freezer guide or a reliable cookbook for further information about preparing food for freezing or food storage times. ••Bread wrappers ••Non-polyethylene plastic containers Freezing ••Wax paper or wax-coated freezer wrap Your freezer will not quick-freeze a large quantity of food. Do not put more unfrozen food into the freezer than will freeze within 24 hours (no more than 2 to 3 pounds of food per cubic foot of freezer space). Leave enough space in the freezer for air to circulate around packages. Be careful to leave enough room at the front so the door can close tightly. Storage times will vary according to the quality and type of food, the type of packaging or wrap used (how airtight and moisture-proof) and the storage temperature. Ice crystals inside a sealed package are normal. This simply means that moisture in the food and air inside the package have condensed, creating ice crystals. NOTE ••Allow hot foods to cool at room temperature for 30 minutes, and then package and freeze. Cooling hot foods before freezing saves energy. Packaging Successful freezing depends on correct packaging. When you close and seal the package, it must not allow air or moisture in or out. If it does, you could have food odor and taste transfer throughout the refrigerator and could also dry out frozen food. Packaging recommendations ••Rigid plastic containers with tight-fitting lids ••Straight-sided canning/freezing jars ••Heavy-duty aluminum foil ••Plastic-coated paper ••Non-permeable plastic wraps ••Specified freezer-grade self-sealing plastic bags Follow package or container instructions for proper freezing methods. ••Containers without tight lids ••Thin, semi-permeable wrap Humidity Controlled Crispers (On Some Models) The crispers provide fresher tasting fruit and vegetables by letting you easily control humidity inside the drawer.
