Connect the water line to the refrigerator - Slip the compression nut and plastic ferrule through the plastic tube. - After inserting the sleeve, tighten the compression nut onto 1/4” compression fitting(union). NOTE Compression Nut Ferrule Sleeve Do not overtighten the compression nut. Compression fitting - Slip the compression ferrule and nut on copper (or plastic) tubing as shown. Tighten the comperssion nut onto the compression fitting(union). - Turn water on and check for any leakege. NOTE Ferrule Compression Nut Waterline must be connected to drinkable water only Check the water supply line Connect the water pipe with coupler and tap. - Close the main water tap. - Connect coupler “A” to the tap. - Every join should be protected with sealing tape. WARRANTY INFORMATION This water line installation is not covered by the refrigerator or ice maker manufacturer's warranty. Follow these instructions carefully to minimise the risk of expensive water damage. CAUTION The water line must be connected to the cold water pipe. If it is connected to the hot water pipe, it may cause the purifier to malfunction. COUPLER “A” Note: If the coupler does not fit on the current tap, go the nearest authorised service dealer and purchase the right couplers fittings. 28 TAP INSTALLATION OF THE WATER DISPENSER LINE Connect the water line to the refrigerator. WATER LINE - Remove the compressor cover of the refrigerator. - Connect the water line to the valve, as shown in the figure. - When connected, check if there is any leakage. If any, repeat the connection. - Reattach the compressor cover of the refrigerator. CONNECTION NUT COMPRESSOR COVER OF REFRIGERATOR Secure the water line. - Using clip ”A”, fix the water line to the wallor (the back of refrigerator). - When the water line is secure, make sure whether the water line is not excessively bent, pinched or squashed. CLIP A Complete the installation of the water supply line. WATER LINE Install the water filter. 1) Remove the fixed cap (A) as shown. the fixed cap separates from the Water Filter Compartment by rotating it counterclockwise. Remove the water filter from the box and put a month indicator stick on the filter as shown. Keep the cap(A) in a safe place for recapping, when you NOTE don’t need to use the filter. 2) If the water filter was installed in March, put on the "SEP" sticker. 3) Remove the Red protective cap from the filter, then position and insert the filter as shown. 4) Slowly turn the water filter clockwise 90º to align the indication mark on the cover, locking the filter in position. Do not overtighten. (A) COVER FILTER SEPARATION OF RED CAP ALIGN THE INDICATION MARK WITH LOCK POSITION. STICKER (MONTH INDICATION) NOTE Please check that the indication line aligns with the lock position. 29 INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS - Power on the refrigerator and press the lever on the right of the dispenser until water runs out through the water line and all air has been empty. - At this time, check for any possible leakages at the join point in the water line. After securing the water line, move the refrigerator to the required location. Once the refrigerator is in position, do not move possibly. INSTALLATION OF THE WATER DISPENSER LINE Remove any residual matter inside the water supply line after installing filter. 1) Turn on the main water supply & shut-off the valve of the water supply line. 2) Run water through the dispenser about the first six glassfuls of water. This will clean the water supply system and clear air from the lines. 3) Additional flushing may be required in some households. 4) Open the refrigerator door and check if water leaks around the water filter. NOTE WATER ICE • A newly-installed water filter cartridge may cause water to briefly spurt from the dispenser. • Before reinstalling the water filter, remove the wine shelf (Optional). Check the amount of water supplied to the ice tray. 1) Lift up (①) and pull out (➁) the ice maker bucket in the freezer. ICE MAKER 2) When you press the test button, the ice cube container is filled with water from the water supply tap. Check the amount of water (see the illustration below). CHECK THE WATER LEVEL If the water level is too low, the ice cubes will be small. This is not a problem with the ice maker but of the water pressure in the pipe, and occurs frequently. When this problem occurs, contact a service person to check the amount of water supplied.
