WHAT YOU WILL NEED (CONT.)

A GE water supply kit (containing tubing, shutoff
valve and fittings listed below) is available at extra
cost from your dealer or from Parts and Accessories,
800.626.2002.
A cold water supply. The water pressure must be
between 20 and 120 p.s.i. (1.4–8.1 bar).
Power drill.
1/2 or adjustable wrench.
Straight and Phillips blade screwdriver.
Two 1/4 outer diameter compression nuts and
2 ferrules (sleeves)—to connect the copper tubing
to the shutoff valve and the refrigerator water valve.
OR
If you are using a GE SmartConnect
Refrigerator
Tubing kit, the necessary fittings are preassembled
to the tubing.
If your existing copper water line has a flared fitting
at the end, you will need an adapter (available at
plumbing supply stores) to connect the water line to
the refrigerator OR you can cut off the flared fitting
with a tube cutter and then use a compression
fitting. Do not cut formed end from GE
SmartConnect
Refrigerator tubing.
Shutoff valve to connect to the cold water line.
The shutoff valve should have a water inlet with a
minimum inside diameter of 5/32 at the point of
connection to the COLD WATER LINE. Saddle-type
shutoff valves are included in many water supply kits.
Before purchasing, make sure a saddle-type valve
complies with your local plumbing codes.

DRILL THE HOLE FOR THE VALVE

Drill a 1/4 hole in the water pipe (even if using
a self-piercing valve) using a sharp bit. Remove any
burrs resulting from drilling the hole in the pipe.
Take care not to allow water to drain into the drill.
Failure to drill a 1/4 hole may result in reduced
ice production or smaller cubes.

CHOOSE THE VALVE LOCATION

Choose a location for the valve that is easily
accessible. It is best to connect into the side of
a vertical water pipe. When it is necessary to
connect into a horizontal water pipe, make the
connection to the top or side, rather than at the
bottom, to avoid drawing off any sediment from
the water pipe.

Installation Instructions

Install the shutoff valve on the nearest frequently used
drinking water line.

SHUT OFF THE MAIN WATER

SUPPLY

Turn on the nearest faucet long enough to clear
the line of water.
