Summit FFBF246SSIM8 Ice Maker Quick Start
QUICK START GUIDE
WATER LINE CONNECTION FOR
INSTALLED (MODULAR) ICEMAKERS
NOTES:
• This manual provides instructions on how to connect a water line to an icemaker already
installed on your Summit refrigerator. Please read the manual carefully and follow the
instructions exactly as described, observing all safety instructions.
•
A certain amount of mechanical ability is required to complete the water connection
process.
•
You will have to purchase a ¼” OD copper tubing kit. The kit contains all the hardware
necessary to connect your icemaker to the water supply, including the regular valve
(NOTE: valve should only be installed in a cold water supply). You can purchase one at
most hardware or plumbing supply stores.
•
DO NOT USE PIERCING-TYPE OR 3/16” SHUT-OFF VALVES. They reduce the flow of water
to the icemaker and are easily clogged.
•
CUSTOMER INSTALLATION IS NOT WARRANTED BY THE REFRIGERATOR OR ICEMAKER
MANUFACTURER.

Forming the copper tubing:
Loop the copper tubing coming from the water valve as shown. Position the coiled copper
tubing near the center of the unit so that it forms an “accordion-fold” (as shown in the diagram
below) for when the refrigerator is moved to and from the wall.

Starting the Icemaker
Wash out the ice bucket. Slide it under the icemaker (see diagram below) as far as it will go. The
ice bucket will be sitting on top of the freezer shelf.
Lower the arm on the icemaker (as shown in the diagram) to its “on” position, and close the
freezer door. The icemaker will begin to make ice within 24 hours.
NOTE:
It usually takes approximately 24 hours for the icemaker to begin producing ice. Once ice is
available, you may notice that it has an “off” taste. If this happens, make two or three batches
of ice and discard them. After that, the “off” taste should be gone.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Operational Notes:
The icemaker water valve contains a flow washer that acts like a pressure regulator to control the water
flow. For the icemaker to work properly, the water pressure in your home must be between 20 and 120
pound-per-square-inch (psi). If you encounter problems with your icemaker’s ability to produce ice, call
your water utility company and have the water pressure checked.
The icemaker’s water valve is equipped with two strainers: a plastic basket type and a wire mesh screen.
Both of these can be cleaned by turning off the water and disassembling the water valve (your service
center should be able to provide this service). If local water conditions require periodic cleaning, or if
you use a well as a water source, you should consider installing a second water strainer in the water line.
You can obtain a water strainer from your local appliance dealer.
The chart below lists several common problems that may occur with your icemaker.
PROBLEM
CAUSE/SOLUTION
One or more of the following sounds is heard:
- Buzzing
- Trickling water
- Thud (clatter of ice)
-The water valve is operating.
-Water is entering the icemaker to fill cup.
-Ice is being dumped into the ice bin.
Ice tastes stale
The ice is old. Make a new batch.
Water in icemaker overflows
Refrigerator or icemaker is not level. If the
icemaker still overflows after leveling, turn off the
icemaker’s water supply at the shut-off valve, and
raise the icemaker’s bail arm to the “off” position
(see previous page); then contact your local
service center.
Not enough ice
It will take 48 hours to fill the ice bucket. The
icemaker will make ice every 2 to 3 hours. For
more ice, adjust the freezer control to a colder
setting.
Ice making has stopped
Be sure that the bail arm is lowered into the ice
bucket.
Make sure that the water shut-off valve is open.
The water shut-off valve or the water valve screen
is clogged. Contact your local service center.
