Proper Disposal of Your Old Refrigerator
WARNING
Suffocation Hazard
Remove doors from your old refrigerator.
Failure to do so can result in death or
brain damage.
IMPORTANT: Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems
of the past. Junked or abandoned refrigerators are still dangerous
– even if they will sit for “just a few days.” If you are getting rid of
your old refrigerator, please follow these instructions to help
prevent accidents.
Before You Throw Away Your Old Refrigerator or Freezer:
■■
Take off the doors.
■■
Leave the shelves in place so that children may not easily
climb inside.
Important information to know about disposal of
refrigerants:
Dispose of refrigerator in accordance with Federal and Local
regulations. Refrigerants must be evacuated by a licensed,
EPA certified refrigerant technician in accordance with
established procedures.
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
Unpack the Refrigerator
WARNING
Excessive Weight Hazard
Use two or more people to move and install
refrigerator.
Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.
Remove the Packaging
■■
Remove tape and glue residue from surfaces before turning
on the refrigerator. Rub 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. For
more information, see “Refrigerator Safety.”
■■
Dispose of/recycle all packaging materials.
When Moving Your Refrigerator:
Your refrigerator is heavy. When moving the refrigerator for
cleaning or service, be sure to cover the floor with
cardboard or hardboard to avoid floor damage. 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.
Clean Before Using
After you remove all of the package materials, clean the inside of
your refrigerator before using it. See the cleaning instructions in
“Refrigerator Care.”
Important information to know about glass shelves and
covers:
Do not clean glass shelves or covers with warm water when
they are cold. Shelves and covers may break if exposed to
sudden temperature changes or impact, such as bumping.
Tempered glass is designed to shatter into many small,
pebble-sized pieces. This is normal. Glass shelves and
covers are heavy. Use both hands when removing them to
avoid dropping.

Location Requirements
Electrical Requirements
WARNING
WARNING
Electrical Shock Hazard
Explosion Hazard
Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet.
Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as
gasoline, away from refrigerator.
Do not remove ground prong.
Failure to do so can result in death, explosion, or fire.
IMPORTANT: This refrigerator is designed for indoor, household
use only.
This appliance is intended to be used in household and similar
applications such as:
■■
Staff kitchen areas in shops, offices and other working
environments.
■■
Farm houses and by clients in hotels, motels and other
residential type environments.
■■
Bed and breakfast type environments.
Catering and similar non-retail applications.
To ensure proper ventilation for your refrigerator, allow for ¹⁄2"
(1.25 cm) of space on each side and at the top. Allow for 1"
(2.54 cm) of space behind the refrigerator. If your refrigerator has
an ice maker, allow extra space at the back for the water line
connections. When installing your refrigerator next to a fixed wall,
leave 2 ¹⁄2" (6.3 cm) minimum on the hinge side (some models
require more) to allow for the door to swing open.
NOTE: This refrigerator is intended for use in a location where
the temperature ranges from a minimum of 55°F (13°C) to a
maximum of 110°F (43°C). The preferred room temperature
range for optimum performance, which reduces electricity usage
and provides superior cooling, is between 60°F (15°C) and 90°F
(32°C). It is recommended that you do not install the refrigerator
near a heat source, such as an oven or radiator.
■■
Do not use an adapter.
Do not use an extension cord.
Failure to follow these instructions can result in death,
fire, or electrical shock.
Before you move your refrigerator into its final location, it is
important to make sure you have the proper electrical
connection.
If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by the
manufacturer or its service agent or a similarly qualified person.
Do not use a cord that shows cracks or abrasion damage along
its length or at either the plug or connector end.
Recommended Grounding Method
A 115 Volt, 60 Hz, AC only 15 or 20 A fused, grounded electrical
supply is required. It is recommended that a separate circuit
serving only your refrigerator be provided. Use an outlet that
cannot be turned off by a switch. Do not use an extension cord.
NOTE: Before performing any type of installation, cleaning, or
removing a light bulb, turn the refrigerator to OFF. Depending
on your model, either turn the freezer control to the word OFF,
or press the Minus sign touch pads repeatedly until a dash (–)
appears in both the Freezer and Refrigerator displays as shown.
Disconnect the refrigerator from the electrical source. When you
are finished, reconnect the refrigerator to the electrical source
and reset the temperature controls to the desired setting. See
“Using the Controls.”
Water Supply Requirements
Gather the required tools and parts before starting installation. Read
and follow the instructions provided with any tools listed here.
¹⁄2 " (1.25 cm)
TOOLS NEEDED:
■■
■■
Flat-blade screwdriver
■■
¹⁄4" Nut driver
⁄16" and ¹⁄2" Open-end or two
adjustable wrenches
■■
¹⁄4" Drill bit
■■
Cordless drill
7
IMPORTANT:
■■
2 ¹⁄2 " (6.3 cm)
4
Connect to a potable water supply only.
Do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or
of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before
or after the system. Systems certified for cyst reduction
may be used on disinfected waters that may contain
filterable cysts.
■■
All installations must meet local plumbing code requirements.
■■
Do not use a piercing-type or ³⁄16" (4.76 mm) saddle valve
which reduces water flow and clogs more easily.
■■
Use copper tubing and check for leaks. Install copper tubing
only in areas where the household temperatures will remain
above freezing.
■■
For models with water filters, the disposable water filter
should be replaced at least every 6 months.
Water Pressure
A cold water supply with water pressure of between 35 and 120
psi (241 and 827 kPa) is required to operate the water dispenser
and ice maker. If you have questions about your water pressure,
call a licensed, qualified plumber.
Reverse Osmosis Water Supply
IMPORTANT: The pressure of the water supply coming out
of a reverse osmosis system going to the water inlet valve
of the refrigerator needs to be between 35 and 120 psi (241
and 827 kPa).
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 to 414 kPa).
If the water pressure to the reverse osmosis system is less than
40 to 60 psi (276 to 414 kPa):
■■
Check to see whether 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 your refrigerator has a water filter, it may further reduce
the water pressure when used in conjunction with a reverse
osmosis system. Remove the water filter. See “Water
Filtration System.”
If you have questions about your water pressure, call a licensed,
qualified plumber.
■■
Connect the Water Supply
Read all directions before you begin.
IMPORTANT:
■■
Plumbing shall be installed in accordance with the
International Plumbing Code and any local codes and
ordinances.
■■
The gray water tubing on the back of the refrigerator (which
is used to connect to the household water line) is a PEX
(cross-linked polyethylene) tube. Copper and PEX tubing
connections from the household water line to the refrigerator
are acceptable, and will help avoid off-taste or odor in your
ice or water. Check for leaks.
If PEX tubing is used instead of copper, we recommend the
following part numbers:
W10505928RP (7 ft [2.14 m] jacketed PEX),
8212547RP (5 ft [1.52 m] PEX), or
W10267701RP (25 ft [7.62 m] PEX).
■■
Install tubing only in areas where temperatures will remain
above freezing.
■■
If you turn on the refrigerator before the water line is
connected, turn off the ice maker to avoid excessive noise or
damage to the water valve.
2. Turn OFF main water supply. Turn ON nearest faucet long
enough to clear line of water.
3. Find a ¹⁄2" to 1¹⁄4" (12.7 mm to 31.8 mm) vertical cold water
pipe near the refrigerator.
IMPORTANT:
■■
Make sure it is a cold water pipe.
Horizontal pipe will work, but the following procedure
must be followed: Drill on the top side of the pipe, not the
bottom. This will help keep water away from the drill. This
also keeps normal sediment from collecting in the valve.
4. Determine the length of copper tubing you need. Measure
from the connection on the lower right rear of the refrigerator
to the water pipe. Add 7 ft (2.1 m) to allow for cleaning. Use
¹⁄4" (6.35 mm) O.D. (outside diameter) copper tubing. Be sure
both ends of copper tubing are cut square.
5. Using a cordless drill, drill a ¹⁄4" hole in the cold water pipe
you have selected.

Tighten the packing nut. Tighten the pipe clamp screws
slowly and evenly so the washer makes a watertight seal. Do
not overtighten.
7. Slip the compression sleeve and compression nut on the
copper tubing as shown. Insert the end of the tubing into the
outlet end squarely as far as it will go. Screw compression nut
onto outlet end with adjustable wrench. Do not overtighten or
you may crush the copper tubing.
8. Place the free end of the tubing in a container or sink, and
turn ON the main water supply. Flush the tubing until water is
clear. Turn OFF the shutoff valve on the water pipe.

2. Move the refrigerator to its final location.
NOTE: To allow the refrigerator to roll easier, raise the
leveling legs off the floor by turning the leveling screws
counterclockwise. The front rollers will be touching the floor.
3. So the doors will close easier, use a ¹⁄4" hex driver to turn
both leveling screws clockwise. This will raise the front of the
refrigerator tilting it slightly downward to the rear. Turn both
leveling screws the same amount.
NOTE: Having someone push against the top of the
refrigerator takes some weight off the leveling screws. This
makes it easier to turn the screws.
6. Make sure the refrigerator is steady. If the refrigerator seems
unsteady or rolls forward when the door or drawer is opened,
adjust the leveling screws. Using a ¹⁄4" hex driver, turn the
leveling screw on each side clockwise until the rollers are up
and the leveling feet are firmly against the floor.
7. Replace the base grille by aligning the holes in the grille with
the holes in the cabinet and fasten using the screws removed

It is essential that operational, maintenance, and filter replacement
requirements be carried out for the product to perform as advertised.
The disposable water filter should be replaced at least every 6
months.
The filter monitor system measures the amount of water that passes
through the filter and alerts you to replace the filter. When 90% of
the filter’s rated life is used, the yellow (Order) light comes on. When
100% of the filter’s rated life is used, the red (Replace) light comes
on, and it is recommended that you replace the filter. For models
without filter status lights, replace the filter every 6 months. Use
replacement filter model UKF8001. 2015 suggested retail price of
$44.99 U.S.A./ $49.95 Canada. Prices are subject to change without
