INSTALLATION
Unpacking Your Refrigerator
y Use two or more people to move and
install the refrigerator. Failure to do so
can result in back or other injury.
y Your refrigerator is heavy. When moving
the refrigerator for cleaning or service,
be sure to protect the floor. Always pull
the refrigerator straight out when moving
it. Do not wiggle or walk the refrigerator
when trying to move it, as floor damage
could occur.
y Keep flammable materials and vapors,
such as gasoline, away from the
refrigerator. Failure to do so can result in
fire, explosion, or death.
Remove tape and any temporary labels from your
refrigerator before using. Do not remove any
warning-type labels, the model and serial number
label, or the Tech Sheet that is located under the
front of the refrigerator.
To remove any remaining tape or glue, rub the
area briskly with your thumb. Tape or glue residue
can also be easily removed by rubbing a small
amount of liquid dish soap over the adhesive with
your fingers. Wipe with warm water and dry.
Do not use sharp instruments, rubbing alcohol,
flammable fluids, or abrasive cleaners to remove
tape or glue. These products can damage the
surface of your refrigerator.
Refrigerator shelves are installed in the shipping
position. Please reinstall shelves according to
your individual storage needs.
Choosing the Proper Location
y Select a place where a water supply can
be easily connected for the automatic
icemaker.
NOTE
The water pressure must be 20~120
psi or 138~827 kPa or 1.4~8.4 kgf/cm²
on models without a water filter and
40~120 psi or 276~827 kPa or 2.8~8.4
kgf/cm² on models with a water filter.
y The refrigerator should always be plugged
into its own individual properly grounded
electrical outlet rated for 115 Volts, 60 Hz,
AC only, and fused at 15 or 20 amperes.
This provides the best performance
and also prevents overloading house
wiring circuits which could cause a fire
hazard from overheated wires. It is
recommended that a separate circuit
serving only this appliance be provided.
WARNING
To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not
install the refrigerator in a wet or damp
area.
Flooring
To avoid noise and vibration, the unit must be
leveled and installed on a solidly constructed
floor. If required, adjust the leveling legs to
compensate for unevenness of the floor. The
front should be slightly higher than the rear to
aid in door closing. Leveling legs can be turned
easily by tipping the cabinet slightly. Turn the
leveling legs to the left to raise the unit or to
the right to lower it. (See Leveling and Door
AlIgnment.)
NOTE
Installing on carpeting, soft tile surfaces,
a platform or weakly supported structure
is not recommended.

22 INSTALLATION
Connecting the Water Line
ENGLISH
Before You Begin
This water line installation is not covered by the
refrigerator warranty. Follow these instructions
carefully to minimize the risk of expensive water
damage.
Water hammer (water banging in the pipes) in
house plumbing can cause damage to refrigerator
parts and can lead to water leakage or flooding.
Call a qualified plumber to correct water hammer
before installing the water supply line to the
refrigerator.
CAUTION
To prevent burns and product damage,
only connect the refrigerator water line to
a cold water supply.
If you use your refrigerator before connecting
the water line, make sure the icemaker power
switch is in the OFF (O) position.
CAUTION
Do not install the icemaker tubing in
areas where temperatures fall below
freezing.
Water Pressure
The water pressure must be 20~120 psi or
138~827 kPa or 1.4~8.4 kgf/cm² on models
without a water filter and 40~120 psi or 276~827
kPa or 2.8~8.4 kgf/cm² on models with a water
filter.
If a reverse osmosis water filtration system is
connected to your cold water supply, this water
line installation is not covered by the refrigerator
warranty. Follow the instructions carefully to
minimize the risk of expensive water damage.
If a reverse osmosis water filtration system is
connected to your cold water supply, the water
pressure to the reverse osmosis system needs
to be a minimum of 40 to 60 psi (276~414 kPa or
2.8~4.2 kgf/cm², less than 2.0~3.0 sec. to fill a
cup of 7 oz or 198 cc capacity).
CAUTION
Wear eye protection during installation
to prevent injury.
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 4.0 sec to fill a cup of 7 oz
or 198 cc capacity):
y Check to see if the sediment filter in
the reverse osmosis system is blocked.
Replace the filter if necessary.
y Allow the storage tank on the reverse
osmosis system to refill after heavy
usage.
y If the issue concerning water pressure
from reverse osmosis remains, call a
licensed, qualified plumber.
y All installations must be in accordance
with local plumbing code requirements.
What You Will Need
y Copper Tubing, ¼ in. outer diameter, to
connect the refrigerator to the water
supply. Be sure both ends of the tubing
are cut square.
y 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.
y Power drill.
y ½ in. or adjustable
wrench.
y Flat blade and Phillips
head screwdrivers.
y 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.
INSTALLATION 23
y 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.
Water Line Installation Instructions
WARNING
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.
Install the shutoff valve on the nearest
frequently used drinking water line.
1
SHUT OFF THE MAIN WATER SUPPLY
Turn on the nearest faucet to relieve the
pressure on the line.
2
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.
3
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.
NOTE
A self piercing saddle type water valve
should not be used.
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.
ENGLISH
y If your existing copper water line has a
flared fitting at the end, you will need
an adapter (available at plumbing supply
stores) to connect the water line to the
refrigerator OR you
can cut off the flared
fitting with a tube
cutter and then use a
compression fitting.

Leveling and Door Alignment
ENGLISH
Leveling
Door Alignment
After installing, plug the refrigerator’s power
cord into a 3-prong grounded outlet and push
the refrigerator into the final position.
The left refrigerator door has an adjustable nut,
located on the bottom hinge, to raise and lower
the door for proper alignment.
Your refrigerator has two front leveling legs—
one on the right and one on the left. Adjust the
legs to alter the tilt from front-to-back or sideto-side. If your refrigerator seems unsteady, or
you want the doors to close more 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 again 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 you should turn both leveling
legs the same amount.
If the space between your doors is uneven, follow
the instructions below to align the doors:
Use the wrench (included with the Use & Care
Guide) to turn the nut in the door hinge to adjust
the height. Turn it to the right to raise or to the
left to lower the height.
