INSTALLATION
ENGLISH
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.
NOTE
• The hookup line cannot be white, plastic tubing.
Licensed plumbers must use only copper tubing
(NDA tubing #49595 or #49599) or Cross Link
Polyethylene (PEX) tubing.
4
Fasten the shutoff valve.
• Fasten the shutoff valve to the cold water
pipe with the pipe clamp.
