your refrigerator. Discard the cap.

Prepare The Installation Site
Transport Unpackaged Refrigerator To Site
Your refrigerator is designed to be part of a built-
in kitchen cabinet system. 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 & Water 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.
Allow the following clearances for ease of installation, proper air circulation, and plumbing and
electrical connections: Sides & Top: 3/8 inch / Rear: 1 inch
By now, you have already removed your refrigerator’s shipping carton.
You may still need to use a hand truck to move it through close spaces or
entrances. If the refrigerator is larger than an entrance, consider two options:
Remove the entrance door if one exists.
Remove the refrigerator doors (see how in your Use & Care Guide).
When using a hand truck:
Load refrigerator from side of cabinet only.
Do not run retaining straps over handles.
Do not over-tighten retaining straps.
Never use refrigerator handles to move the
refrigerator.
Remove tape from doors only after unit is in place.
Connect Water Supply
What you will need:
Access to a cold
water line with
pressure of
30-100 psi.
Copper tubing
with ¼-inch
(6.4mm) OD.
Length for this tubing is the distance
from the rear of the refrigerator to your
household water supply line plus 7
feet (2.1 meters).
A shut-off valve for the connection
between your household water line and
the refrigerator supply line. Do not use
a self-piercing shut-off valve.
A compression nut and ferrule (sleeve)
for the water supply connection at the
rear of your refrigerator.
Place In Permanent Position
If possible, use a hand truck to position the refrigerator directly in front of its cabinet enclosure.
Be careful not to move the refrigerator beyond its water supply (copper tubing) connections.
Plug in the power cord, and push the refrigerator
straight back into place.

All four corners of the cabinet must rest rmly on the oor.
The cabinet should be level at the front and rear.
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.
To level the cabinet using the front rollers:
1 With both doors closed, unfasten right and left side clips
of toe grille from bottom hinge groove Open both doors.
Press rmly on top of toe grille until top of toe grille pops
off. Pull toe grille outward toward your body and off of lower hinges.
(See illustration 1.)

3
/
8
inch socket wrench to raise or lower the front rollers. (See
illustration 2.)
3 Ensure both doors are bind-free with their seals touching the
cabinet on all four sides.
To level the doors using the adjustable lower hinge (Type 1
with set screw):
1 Before leveling either door, remove set screw that locks door height into position. (The door
cannot be adjusted without set screw removed.)
2 If the refrigerator door is lower than the freezer door, raise the refrigerator door by turning
the adjustment screw clockwise using a
7
/
16

4 After leveling, verify door stop contacts lower hinge and top of door does not contact upper
hinge through full movement of door (from fully closed to fully open). (See illustration 4.)
5 Reinstall set screw, locking the door height.
6 To replace the toe grille, open both doors. Slide left and right sides of toe grille over lower
hinges of refrigerator. While pushing toe grille rmly against cabinet, fasten bottom clips of
toe grille to cabinet. Fasten top clips to cabinet. Close the doors. Fasten right and left side

Operation problems are possible if any of the installation tasks are not completed. Here is a list
of things to check for:
Is the refrigerator’s power cord plugged in?
Is the refrigerator connected to the household water supply?
If you had to remove the refrigerator and freezer doors, did you reattach water and power
connectors at the door hinges? (See the Use & Care Guide for detailed instructions on
removing and replacing doors.)
Is the ice maker power switch turned On?
Other possibilities to check:
Is the power to the receptacle turned on?
Is the water lter above the fresh food compartment fully seated (see Use & Care Guide for details)?
If you still have operation problems after checking these suggestions, please see the “Solutions
To Common Problems” section in your Use & Care Guide.
