ENGLISH 1 21 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. 24 INSTALLATION 4 ENGLISH FASTEN THE SHUTOFF VALVE Fasten the shutoff valve to the cold water pipe with the pipe clamp. 7 Pipe Clamp Saddle-Type Shutoff Valve Saddle-Type Shutoff Valve Vertical Cold Water Pipe Commonwealth of Massachusetts Plumbing Codes 248CMR shall be adhered to. Saddle valves are illegal and their use is not permitted in Massachusetts. Consult with your licensed plumber. Outlet Valve 8 TIGHTEN THE PIPE CLAMP Tighten the clamp screws until the sealing washer begins to swell. Washer Inlet End Clamp Screw 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 feet coiled into 3 turns of about 10 in. diameter) to allow the refrigerator to move out from the wall after installation. 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. NOTE: Do not overtighten the clamp or you may crush the tubing. Pipe Clamp Compression Nut Packing Nut NOTE 5 CONNECT THE TUBING TO THE VALVE Place the compression nut and ferrule (sleeve) for the 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. a. Remove the plastic flexible cap from the water valve. b. Place the compression nut and ferrule (sleeve) onto the end of the tubing as shown. c. 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) Refrigerator Connection INSTALLATION 25 10 TURN THE WATER ON AT THE SHUTOFF CAUTION Check to see if leaks occur at the water line connections. 11 PLUG IN THE REFRIGERATOR Arrange the coil of tubing so that it does not vibrate against the back of the refrigerator or against the wall. Push the refrigerator back to the wall. 12 START THE ICEMAKER Set the icemaker power switch to the ON position. The icemaker will not begin to operate until it reaches its operating temperature of 15°F (–9°C) or below. It will then begin operation automatically if the icemaker power switch is in the ON (I) position. Turning On The Power Plug in the refrigerator. CAUTION y Connect to a rated power outlet. y Have a certified electrician check the wall outlet and wiring for proper grounding. y Do not damage or cut off the ground terminal of the power plug. ENGLISH VALVE Tighten any connections that leak. 26 INSTALLATION 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.
