Unpacking Your Refrigerator
1 Use two or more people to move and install the refrigerator. Failure to do so can result in back or other injury.
2 Your refrigerator is heavy. When moving the refrigerator for cleaning or service, be sure to protect the floor. Always pull the refrigerator straight out when moving it. Do not wiggle or walk the refrigerator when trying to move it, as floor damage could occur.
3 Keep flammable materials and vapors, such as gasoline, away from the refrigerator. Failure to do so can result in fire, explosion, or death.
Remove tape and any temporary labels from your refrigerator before using. Do not remove any warning-type labels, the model and serial number label, or the Tech Sheet that is located under the front of the refrigerator.
To remove any remaining tape or glue, 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. These products can damage the surface of your refrigerator. Refrigerator shelves are installed in the shipping position. Please reinstall shelves according to your individual storage needs.
Choosing the Proper Location
1 Select a place where a water supply can be easily connected for the automatic icemaker.
2 The refrigerator should always be plugged into its own individual properly grounded electrical outlet rated for 115 Volts, 60 Hz, AC only, and fused at 15 or 20 amperes. This provides the best performance and also prevents overloading house wiring circuits which could cause a fire hazard from overheated wires. It is recommended that a separate circuit serving only this appliance be provided.
To avoid noise and vibration, the unit must be leveled and installed on a solidly constructed floor. If required, adjust the leveling legs to compensate for unevenness of the floor. The front should be slightly higher than the rear to aid in door closing. Leveling legs can be turned easily by tipping the cabinet slightly. Turn the leveling legs to the left to raise the unit or to the right to lower it. (See Leveling and door AlIgnment.)
Install this appliance in an area where the temperature is between 55°F (13°C) and 110°F (43°C). If the temperature around the appliance is too low or high, cooling ability may be adversely affected.
Measuring the Clearances
Too small of a distance from adjacent items may result in lowered freezing capability and increased electricity consumption charges. Allow at least 24 inches (61 cm) in front of the refrigerator to open the doors, and at least 2 inches (5.08 cm) between the back of the refrigerator and the wall.

Before You Begin
This water line installation is not covered by the refrigerator warranty. Follow these instructions carefully to minimize the risk of expensive water damage.
Water hammer (water banging in the pipes) in house plumbing can cause damage to refrigerator parts and can lead to water leakage or flooding. Call a qualified plumber to correct water hammer before installing the water supply line to the refrigerator.
If you use your refrigerator before connecting the water line, make sure the icemaker power switch is in the OFF (O) position.
A cold water supply. The water pressure must be 20~120 psi or 138~827 kPa or 1.4~8.4 kgf/cm² on models without a water filter and 40~120 psi or 276~827 kPa or 2.8~8.4 kgf/cm² on models with a water filter.
If a reverse osmosis water filtration system is connected to your cold water supply, this water line installation is not covered by the refrigerator warranty. Follow the following instructions carefully to minimize the risk of expensive water damage.
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 (276~414 kPa or 2.8~4.2 kgf/cm², less than 2.0~3.0 sec. to fill a cup of 7 oz or 198 cc capacity).
If the water pressure from the reverse osmosis system is less than 20 psi or 138 kPa or 1.4 kgf/ cm² (takes more than 4.0 sec to fill a cup of 7 oz or 198 cc capacity):
1 Check to see if the sediment filter in the reverse osmosis system is blocked. Replace the filter if necessary.
2 Allow the storage tank on the reverse usage.
3 If the issue concerning water pressure from reverse osmosis remains, call a licensed, qualified plumber.
4 All installations must be in accordance with local plumbing code requirements.
What You Will Need
1 Copper Tubing, ¼ in. outer diameter, to connect the refrigerator to the water supply. Be sure both ends of the tubing are cut square.
2 To determine how much tubing you need: measure the distance from the water valve on the back of the refrigerator to the water supply pipe. Then, add 8 feet (2.4 m). Be sure there is sufficient extra tubing (about 8 feet [2.4 m] coiled into 3 turns of about 10 in. [25 cm] diameter) to allow the refrigerator to move out from the wall after installation.
3 Power drill.
4 ½ in. or adjustable wrench.
5 Flat blade and Phillips head screwdrivers.
6 Two ¼ in. outer diameter compression nuts and 2 ferrules (sleeves) to connect the copper tubing to the shutoff valve and the refrigerator water valve.
7 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.
8 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 in. 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 saddletype valve complies with your local plumbing codes.
Install the shutoff valve on the nearest frequently used drinking water line.
1 SHUT OFF THE MAIN WATER SUPPLY
Turn on the nearest faucet to relieve the pressure on the line.
2 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.
3 DRILL THE HOLE FOR THE VALVE
Drill a ¼ in. hole in the water pipe using a sharp bit. Remove any burrs resulting from drilling the hole in the pipe. Be careful not to allow water to drain into the drill. Failure to drill a ¼ in. hole may result in reduced ice production or smaller cubes.
4 FASTEN THE SHUTOFF VALVE
Fasten the shutoff valve to the cold water pipe with the pipe clamp.
5 TIGHTEN THE PIPE CLAMP
Tighten the clamp screws until the sealing washer begins to swell.
NOTE: Do not overtighten clamp or you may crush the tubing.
6 ROUTE THE TUBING
Route the tubing between the cold water line and the refrigerator. Route the tubing through a hole drilled in the wall or floor (behind the refrigerator or adjacent base cabinet) as close to the wall as possible.
7 CONNECT THE TUBING TO THE VALVE
Place the compression nut and ferrule (sleeve) for copper tubing onto the end of the tubing and connect it to the shutoff valve. Make sure the tubing is fully inserted into the valve. Tighten the compression nut securely.
8 FLUSH OUT THE TUBING
Turn the main water supply on and flush out the tubing until the water is clear. Shut the water off at the water valve after about one quart of water has been flushed through the tubing.
9 CONNECT THE TUBING TO THE REFRIGERATOR
NOTE: Before making the connection to the refrigerator, be sure that the refrigerator power cord is not plugged into the wall outlet.
a. Remove the plastic flexible cap from the water valve.
b. Place the compression nut and ferrule (sleeve) onto the end of the tubing as shown.
c. Insert the end of the copper tubing into the connection as far as possible. While holding the tubing, tighten the fitting.
10 TURN THE WATER ON AT THE SHUTOFF VALVE
Tighten any connections that leak.
11 PLUG IN THE REFRIGERATOR
Arrange the coil of tubing so that it does not vibrate against the back of the refrigerator or against the wall. Push the refrigerator back to the wall.
12 START THE ICEMAKER
Set the icemaker power switch to the ON 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 power switch is in the ON (I) position.
Turning On The Power
1 Plug in the refrigerator.
Leveling and Door Alignment
After installing, plug the refrigerator’s power cord into a 3-prong grounded outlet and push the refrigerator into the final position.
Your refrigerator has two front leveling legs—one on the right and one on the left. Adjust the legs to alter the tilt from front-to-back or sideto-side. If your refrigerator seems unsteady, or you want the doors to close more easily, adjust the refrigerator’s tilt using the instructions below:
1 Turn the leveling leg to the left to raise that side of the refrigerator or to the right to lower it. It may take several turns of the leveling leg to adjust the tilt of the refrigerator.
2 Open both doors again and check to make sure that they close easily. If the doors do not close easily, tilt the refrigerator slightly more to the rear by turning both leveling legs to the left. It may take several more turns, and you should turn both leveling legs the same mount.
Both the left and right refrigerator doors have an adjustable nut, located on the bottom hinge, to raise and lower them to align properly. If the space between your doors is uneven, follow the instructions below to align the doors evenly:
Use the wrench (included with the Owner’s Manual) to turn the nut in the door hinge to adjust the height. To the right to raise or to the left to lower the height.
