Read all instructions very very very carefully before starting. ESSENTIAL;
If running the ice box before setting up the water connection, turn ice manufacturer into the OFF position to avoid procedure without water.
All installations should be prior to regional plumbing system
Utilize copper tubing and look for leaks.
Install copper tubing only in areas where conditions will continue to be above freezing.
If usually takes as much as a day for the ice manufacturer to start creating ice.

Hand drill or electric drill (correctly grounded)
Your ice box dealer features a kit available with a
in. (6.35 mm) saddle-type shut-off valve, a union, and copper
tubing. Before buying, make certain a saddle-type valve
complies together with your regional plumbing work codes. Don’t use a piercingВ
in. (4.76 mm) seat valve which decreases water movement
and clogs more easily.
Chilled water supply
The ice manufacturer water valve contains a movement washer that will be utilized
as a water stress regulator. The ice manufacturer 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 ice box or disconnect energy.
Turn OFF main water supply. Start faucet that is nearest very long
sufficient to clear type of water.
water pipeline nearby the ice box.
Horizontal pipeline will work, however the procedure that is following
needs to be followed: Drill regarding the top part for the pipeline, not the base. This can help to keep water far from the drill. And also this keeps normal sediment from gathering when you look at the valve.
To look for the amount of copper tubing you will need,
measure from connection on reduced remaining backside of fridge to
water pipeline. Add 7 ft. (2.1 m) to accommodate going fridge for cleansing. utilize 14 in. (6.35 mm) O.D. (outside diameter)
copper tubing. Be certain both ends of copper tubing are cut square.
Utilizing a grounded drill, drill a 14 in. gap in the chilled water pipeline
you’ve got chosen.

2. Pipe Clamp
3. Copper Tubing
4. Compression Nut
5. Compression Sleeve
6. Shut-Off Valve
7. Packing Nut
Fasten shut-off valve to chilled water pipeline with pipeline clamp. Be
certain socket end is sturdily within the 14 in. drilled opening when you look at the water
pipeline and therefore washer is beneath the pipeline clamp. Tighten packing nut. Tighten the pipeline clamp screws very very carefully and
evenly so washer makes a watertight seal. Usually do not overtighten or you might crush the copper tubing, particularly if soft (coiled) copper tubing can be used. Now you are prepared to link the copper tubing.
Slide compression nut on copper tubing as shown. Insert end of tubing into socket end squarely in terms of it shall get. Screw compression nut onto socket end with adjustable wrench. Usually do not overtighten.
Spot the end that is free of tubing as a container or sink, and
switch on main water supply and flush out tubing until water is obvious. Turn fully off shut-off valve in the water pipe. Coil copper tubing.
Linking to fridge:
1. Attach the copper pipe towards the valve inlet utilizing a compression
nut and sleeve as shown. Fasten the compression nut. Usually do not overtighten. Make use of the tube clamp in the straight straight back associated with
fridge to secure the tubing towards the refrigerator as shown. This can help alleviate problems with injury to the tubing as soon as the fridge is pressed straight straight right back up against the wall. Go on to step two.
2. Turn shut-off valve ON. Search for leakages.

The ice manufacturer has a water strainer that is built-in. If
regional water conditions need regular cleansing or a well is
your way to obtain water supply, a 2nd water strainer should
be set up when you look at the
in. (6.35 mm) water line. Get yourself a water
strainer from your own nearest appiiance dealer. Install at either pipe connection.
