INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS Unpack the Ice Maker Location Requirements ■ To ensure proper ventilation for your ice maker, the front side must be completely unobstructed. The ice maker may be closed-in on the top and three sides, but the installation should allow the ice maker to be pulled forward for servicing if necessary. ■ Installation of the ice maker requires a cold water supply inlet of ¹⁄₄" (6.35 mm) OD soft copper tubing with a shutoff valve or a Whirlpool supply line Part Number 8212547RB, and a Whirlpool approved drain pump, Part Number 1901A, only to carry the water to an existing drain. ■ Choose a well-ventilated area with temperatures above 55°F (13°C) and below 110°F (43°C). Best results are obtained between 70°F and 90°F (21ºC and 32°C). ■ The ice maker must be installed in an area sheltered from the elements, such as wind, rain, water spray, or drip. ■ When installing the ice maker under a counter, follow the recommended opening dimensions shown. Place electrical and plumbing fixtures in the recommended location as shown. WARNING Excessive Weight Hazard Use two or more people to move and install ice maker. Failure to do so can result in back or other injury. Removing Packaging Materials Remove tape and glue from your ice maker before using. ■ To remove any remaining tape or glue from the exterior of the ice maker, 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. Do not use chlorine bleach on the stainless steel surfaces of the ice maker. These products can damage the surface of your ice maker. Cleaning Before Use After you remove all of the packaging materials, clean the inside of your ice maker before using it. See the cleaning instructions in the “Ice Maker Care” section. 2 NOTES: ■ Check that the power supply cord is not damaged or pinched or kinked between the ice maker and the cabinet. ■ Check that the water supply line is not damaged or pinched or kinked between the ice maker and the cabinet. ■ Check that the drain line (on some models) is not damaged or pinched or kinked between the ice maker and the cabinet. ■ Check that the ice maker door is not flush with the standard cabinets to avoid problems with opening the ice maker door. IMPORTANT: If this product is connected to a GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) equipped outlet, nuisance tripping of the power supply may occur, resulting in loss of cooling. Ice quality may be affected. If nuisance tripping has occurred, and if the condition of the ice appears poor, dispose of it.

Recommended location for electrical and plumbing fixtures B. Floor level ■ The ice maker must be grounded. The ice maker is equipped with a power supply cord having a 3 prong grounding plug. The cord must be plugged into a mating, 3 prong, grounding-type wall receptacle, grounded in accordance with the National Electrical Code and local codes and ordinances. If a mating wall receptacle is not available, it is the personal responsibility of the customer to have a properly grounded, 3 prong wall receptacle installed by a qualified electrician. Choose a location where the floor is even. It is important for the ice maker to be level in order to work properly. If needed, you can adjust the height of the ice maker by changing the height of the leveling legs. See “Leveling.” Electrical Requirements WARNING Electrical Shock Hazard Plug into a grounded 3 prong outlet. Do not remove ground prong. 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 ice maker into its final location, it is important to make sure you have the proper electrical connection: A 115 volt, 60 Hz., AC only, 15- or 20-amp electrical supply, properly grounded in accordance with the National Electrical Code and local codes and ordinances, is required. It is recommended that a separate circuit, serving only your ice maker, be provided. Use a receptacle which cannot be turned off by a switch or pull chain. Check that the water supply lines are insulated against freezing conditions. Ice formations in the supply lines can increase water pressure and damage your ice maker or home. Damage from frozen supply lines is not covered by the warranty. A cold water supply with water pressure of between 30 and 120 psi (207 and 827 kPa) is required to operate the ice maker. If you have questions about your water pressure, call a licensed, qualified plumber. Reverse Osmosis Water Supply IMPORTANT: ■ A reverse osmosis water filtration system is not recommended for ice makers that have a drain pump installed. ■ For gravity drain systems only. ■ The pressure of the water supply coming out of a reverse osmosis system going to the water inlet valve of the ice maker needs to be between 30 and 120 psi (207 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). NOTE: The reverse osmosis system must provide 1 gal. (3.8 L) of water per hour to the ice maker for proper ice maker operation. If a reverse osmosis system is desired, only a whole-house capacity reverse osmosis system, capable of maintaining the steady water supply required by the ice maker, is recommended. Faucet capacity reverse osmosis systems are not able to maintain the steady water supply required by the ice maker. 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 you have questions about your water pressure, call a licensed, qualified plumber. Vacation or Extended Time Without Use ■ When you will not be using the ice maker for an extended period of time, turn off the water and power supply to the ice maker. ■ Check that the water supply lines are insulated against freezing conditions. Ice formations in the supply lines can increase water pressure and cause damage to your ice maker or home. Damage from freezing is not covered by the warranty. 3 ■ Connect 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. ■ Use copper tubing or Whirlpool supply line, Part Number 8212547RP, and check for leaks. ■ Install tubing only in areas where temperatures will remain above freezing. Tools Needed Gather the required tools and parts before starting installation: ■ Flat-blade screwdriver ■ ⁷⁄₁₆" and ¹⁄₂" open-end wrenches or two adjustable wrenches ■ ¹⁄₄" nut driver NOTE: Do not use a piercing-type or ³⁄₁₆" (4.76 mm) saddle valve which reduces water flow and clogs more easily. Connecting the Water Line 1. Turn off main water supply. Turn on nearest faucet long enough to clear line of water. 2. Using a ¹⁄₂" copper supply line with a quarter-turn shutoff valve or the equivalent, connect the ice maker as shown. NOTE: To allow sufficient water flow to the ice maker a minimum ¹⁄₂" diameter home supply line is recommended. Slip compression sleeve and compression nut on copper tubing as shown.
