How To Install The Water Line On The Side By Side Refrigerator
Page 1. Installing The Water Line
Throw out the first 2 full
buckets of ice
to ensure all impurities have been removed from the water line.
Only connect the water line to a drinkable water source.
If you have to
repair or disassemble the water line, cut off 1/4“ of the plastic tubing
to ensure a snug, leak-free connection.
To install the water line,
follow the steps below:
Shut off the main water supply.
the nearest cold water drinking line with a shut off valve installed.
the water line installation kit to the shut off valve.
the household water line to the assembled compression fitting.
If you are
using copper tubing, slip the compression nut (B) (not supplied) and ferrule
(not supplied) on the copper tubing (not supplied) as shown.
If you are
using plastic tubing (B) , insert the molded end (Bulb) of the plastic
tubing (B) into the compression fitting.
Warning: Do not use plastic
tubing (B) without a
molded end (Bulb).
the compression nut (B) onto the compression fitting, without over-tightning
Turn water on and check for any leakage. If you find water drops or leakage
in the connection areas, turn off the main water supply. Check the connections
and, if necessary, tighten.
installing the water line, flush the water line and filter by
pressing and holding down the water dispenser lever with a container
to catch dispensed water. Dispense at least 2-3 gallons of water to
ensure that all air and impurities have been flushed from the system.
flushing the lines, test the water pressure verify it is at a minimum water pressure of 20psi.
Test the water pressure by dispensing water into a measuring
cup for 10
If at least 5.75 ounces of water is dispensed, the water pressure is above
5.75 ounces of water is not dispensed,
If the refrigerator is installed in
an area with low water pressure (below
20psi), you should install a booster pump to compensate for the low pressure.
without water dispensers do not have internal water dispensers.
flushing the water lines for the first time, water will not dispense immediately
because air is in them.
you have been holding the dispenser lever for over 3 minutes and water is
not being dispensed, verify that water supply valve is open and that power
is being supplied to the unit.
