Connect the Tubing to the Refrigerator

Before making the connection to the refrigerator, be sure the refrigerator power cord is not plugged into the wall outlet.

We recommend installing a water filter if your water supply has sand or particles that could clog the screen of the refrigerator’s water valve. Install it in the water line near the refrigerator.

1 Remove the plastic flexible cap from the water valve.

2 Place the compression nut and ferrule (sleeve) onto the end of the tubing as shown.

3 Insert the end of the copper tubing into the water valve connection as far as possible. While holding the tubing, tighten the fitting.

4 Fasten the copper tubing into the clamp provided to hold it in a vertical position.

You may need to pry open the clamp.

One of the illustrations below will look like the connection on your refrigerator.

Plug In the Refrigerator

Arrange the coil of copper tubing so that it does not vibrate against the back of the refrigerator or against the wall.

Push the refrigerator back to the wall.

Start the Icemaker

Set the icemaker feeler arm to the ON (down) 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 feeler arm is in the

ON (down) position.

NOTE: The icemaker may double-cycle when it first starts, causing some water spillage from the icemaker into the ice bucket. This is normal and should not happen again.
