Preparing For Installation
Be sure to coordinate site preparation and installation with your kitchen
contractor.
Include these minimum guidelines in your site preparation:
• Choose a place near a grounded electrical outlet.
• Do not use an extension cord or an adapter plug.
• Avoid direct sunlight and close proximity to a range, dishwasher or
other heat source.
• Floor should be level and able to support a fully loaded refrigerator.
• The refrigerator's Ice Dispenser requires
water supply access.
• Plan for easy access to counter tops when
removing food.
• For complete access to drawers and freezer
baskets, doors must be able to fully open.
• Load refrigerator from side of cabinet only.
• Do not run retaining straps over handles nor overtighten straps.
• Never use refrigerator handles to move the refrigerator.
Allow the following clearances for ease of installation, proper air circulation, and plumbing and electrical

inlet valve at the back of the refrigerator to your cold
water pipe. Then add approximately 7 feet, so the refrigerator can be moved out for cleaning.
• A shutoff valve to connect the water supply line to your household water system. DO NOT use a self-
piercing type shutoff valve.
• A compression nut and ferrule (sleeve) for connecting a copper water supply line to the ice maker inlet valve.
CAUTION
To Avoid Property Damage:
• Copper or Stainless Steel braided tubing is recommended for the water supply line.
Water supply tubing made of ¼ inch (6 mm) plastic is not recommended to be used.
Plastic tubing greatly increases the potential for water leaks, and the manufacturer
will not be responsible for any damage if plastic tubing is used for the supply line.
• Do not reuse compression fitting or use thread seal tape.
• DO NOT install water supply tubing in areas where temperatures fall below freezing.
• Chemicals from a malfunctioning softener can damage the ice maker. If the ice maker is
connected to soft water, ensure that the softener is maintained and working properly.
If you are not satisfied with the installation of your refrigerator, please contact the store where you purchased it or call 1-877-435-3287 for assistance.

Level Refrigerator & Adjust Doors (if necessary)
Guidelines for final positioning of your refrigerator
• All four corners of the cabinet must rest firmly on the floor.
• The sides should tilt ¼ inch (6 mm) from front to back
(to ensure that doors close and seal properly).
• Doors should align with each other and be level.
Most of these conditions can be met by raising or lowering
the adjustable front rollers.
To level the cabinet using the front rollers:
1 You can raise or lower each door. Use a
wrench to turn the adjustment screws (1 per side).
To raise: turn adjustment screw clockwise.
To lower: turn adjustment screw counterclockwise.
2 Ensure both doors are bind-free with their seals
touching the cabinet on all four sides and that cabinet is
stable.
3 After unit is leveled, lower anti-tip leg until it contacts
the floor.
