Install copper tubing only in areas where conditions will stay above freezing.

Your fridge dealer features a kit available having 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 neighborhood plumbing system codes. Don’t use a piercingВ
in. (4.76 mm) seat valve which decreases water movement
and clogs more easily.
The ice manufacturer water valve includes a movement washer that is utilized
as a water stress regulator. The ice manufacturer has to be linked to a water that is cold with water stress between 30 and 120 psi. In case a issue happens, phone your energy business.
Linking to water line:
1. Unplug ice box or disconnect energy.
Turn OFF main water supply. Switch on nearest tap very very very long

water pipeline close to the fridge.
Horizontal pipeline is going to work, however the following procedure
needs to be followed: Drill from the top region of the pipeline, perhaps not the underside. This can help in keeping water away from the drill. And also this keeps normal sediment from gathering within the valve.
To look for the period of copper tubing you will need,
measure from connection on reduced rear that is left of to
water pipeline. Include 7 ft. (2.1 m) to accommodate going refrigerator for cleansing. utilize 14 in. (6.35 mm) O.D. (outside diameter)
copper tubing. Make sure both ends of copper tubing are cut square.
Employing a grounded drill, drill a 14 in. gap within the chilled water pipeline
you’ve got chosen.

yes socket end is sturdily into the 14 in. drilled opening into the water
pipe and therefore washer is underneath the pipeline clamp. Tighten packing nut. Tighten the pipeline clamp screws very very carefully and
evenly so washer makes a watertight seal. Don’t overtighten or you may crush the copper tubing, particularly when 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 so far as it will go. Screw compression nut onto socket end with adjustable wrench. Try not to overtighten.
Put the end that is free of tubing into a container or sink, and
switch on water that is main and flush out tubing until water is obvious. Turn OFF shut-off valve regarding the water pipeline. Coil copper tubing.
Connecting to ice box:
1. Connect the copper pipe into the valve inlet using a compression
nut and sleeve as shown. Fasten the compression nut. Usually do not overtighten. Make use of the pipe clamp in the relative straight back regarding the
ice box to secure the tubing to your refrigerator as shown. This can help alleviate problems with injury to the tubing if the ice box is pressed right right straight back up against the wall surface. Move to step two.
2. Turn shut-off valve ON. Search for leakages.

The ice manufacturer comes with a integrated water strainer. If
regional water conditions need regular cleaning or perhaps a well is
your way to obtain water supply, a 2nd water strainer should
be set up into the
in. (6.35 mm) water line. Have a water
strainer from your own nearest appiiance dealer. Install at either pipe connection.
