If running the ice box before setting up the water connection, turn ice manufacturer into the OFF position to stop procedure without water.

Utilize copper tubing and look for leaks.

Install copper tubing only in areas where conditions will continue to be above freezing.

Your fridge dealer includes a kit available with a

tubing. Before buying, make certain a saddle-type valve

complies together with your neighborhood plumbing system codes. Don’t use a piercingВ­

in. (4.76 mm) seat valve which decreases water movement

and clogs more easily.

Cool water supply

The ice manufacturer water valve has a movement washer that is utilized

as being a water stress regulator. The ice maker has to be attached to a cool water line with water force between 30 and 120 psi. In case a issue does occur, phone your energy business.

Linking to water line:

1. Disconnect refrigerator or disconnect energy.

Turn OFF main water supply. Start faucet that is nearest very long

Horizontal pipeline will continue to work, however the following procedure

must certanly be followed: Drill in the top part for the pipe, maybe perhaps perhaps not the underside. This can help to keep water out of the drill. And also this keeps normal sediment from gathering within the valve.

To look for the duration of copper tubing you will need,

measure from connection on reduced rear that is left of to

water pipeline. Include 7 ft. (2.1 m) to accommodate going ice box for cleansing. utilize 14 in. (6.35 mm) O.D. (outside diameter)

copper tubing. Make sure both ends of copper tubing are cut square.

Using a grounded drill, drill a 14 in. gap into the water pipe that is cold

Fasten shut-off valve to water that is cold with pipeline clamp. Be

certain socket end is sturdily into the 14 in. drilled gap into the water

pipeline and that washer is beneath the pipeline clamp. Tighten packing nut. Tighten the pipeline clamp screws carefully and

evenly so washer makes a watertight seal. Try not to overtighten or you might crush the copper tubing, particularly when soft (coiled) copper tubing is employed. Now you are quite ready to link the copper tubing.


Slip compression nut on copper tubing as shown. Insert end of tubing into socket end squarely in terms of it will get. Screw compression nut onto socket end with adjustable wrench. Don’t overtighten.

Put the free end associated with the tubing in to a container or sink, and

switch on water that is main and flush out tubing until water is obvious. Turn OFF shut-off valve from the water pipeline. Coil copper tubing.

Linking to fridge:

1. Connect the copper pipe into the valve inlet utilizing a compression

Sleeve and nut as shown. Fasten the compression nut. Try not to overtighten. Utilize the pipe clamp from the straight back regarding the

fridge to secure the tubing towards the refrigerator as shown. This can assist in preventing harm to the tubing once the ice box is pressed straight straight right back against the wall surface. Relocate to step two.
