1 REMOVE THE COVER

At the bottom rear of the refrigerator, remove the screws holding the access cover.

Bend the cover back to access the compartment.

Be sure to save the screws as the access cover must be reinstalled later to ensure that your refrigerator will function properly.

• Plug the female connector (C) onto the male terminals on the water valve (3). Either wire can go on either terminal.

3 ATTACH THE WATER VALVE (cont.)

• Clip the end of the ground wire to the refrigerator cabinet.

6 ROUTE AND ATTACH THE

WATER TUBE

• Fasten the plastic water tube to the back of the refrigerator with three of the adhesive-backed fasteners (4), spacing the fasteners as shown.

IMPORTANT: To ensure a proper ground, the end of the ground wire MUST be secured to the refrigerator cabinet.

4 CONNECT WATER TUBE

TO INLET

• Squeeze the ends of the hose clamp (12) from the kit with pliers and slide the clamp over the inlet, located on the right side of the refrigerator.

• While still squeezing the clamp, insert the free end of the water tube (3) into the inlet as far as it will go.

• Then slide the clamp downward to capture the water tube in place.

• Using one of the adhesive-backed fasteners (4), secure the water tube to the back of the refrigerator about 1/2

″ below the inlet.

5 INSTALL WATER LINE CLAMP

• Attach the water line clamp (strain relief) (6) from the kit to the refrigerator. With the clamp directly in line with the water valve, drive the screw (5) from the kit through the clamp (6) at the indent into the back of the cabinet.

7 WATER VALVE INSTALLED

Refer to the Water Line Installation Instructions for connection to the home water supply. After water line installation is completed, set the icemaker power switch to I (on).

Even when the icemaker power switch is in the

I (on) position, power to the icemaker will be interrupted when the freezer door/drawer is open.

This prevents ice ejecting from the icemaker from missing the ice bucket and dropping into the back of the freezer. Because power to the icemaker is interrupted while the door/drawer is open, the green power light on the icemaker will be off. To make sure the icemaker is working properly, press the freezer light switch located on the upper right side of the freezer compartment. The power light on the icemaker will come on.

Note: After installing the icemaker, do not open the door/drawer for approximately 4 hours. This will allow the freezer to reach the correct operating temperature for making ice, and will prevent water from spilling out of the icemaker mold.

Proceed with the appropriate step in the Installing the Water Line section in the Owner’s Manual and

Installation Instructions to complete the installation.

• The metal clamp is for the house water line (see

Water Line Installation Instructions). It is not to be used for the water tube from the water valve up to the inlet.
