Severe warning signs for transportation and site

WARNING

  • When transporting and installing the appliance, care should be taken to ensure that no parts of the refrigerating circuit are damaged.
    – Refrigerant leaking from the pipe work could ignite or cause an eye injury. If a leak is detected, avoid any naked flames or potential sources of ignition and air the room in which the appliance is standing for several minutes.
    – This appliance contains a small amount of isobutane refrigerant (R-600a), a natural gas with high environmental compatibility that is, however, also combustible. When transporting and installing the appliance, care should be taken to ensure that no parts of the refrigerating circuit are damaged.
Before connecting the water line

To use the ice maker, you must connect the water line to it. For the ice maker to operate properly, a water pressure of 20 – 125 psi (0.138 – 0.862 mPa) is required.

WARNING
Make sure to connect the water line only to a potable water source.

CAUTION

  • Do not reuse an old hose set. Use the new hose sets supplied with your refrigerator only.
  • The water line installation is not covered by the Warranty of this product. Read carefully through these instructions to protect your property and prevent possible damage.
  • Banging pipes (water banging in the pipes) can cause damage to the refrigerator, and lead to water leakage or flooding. If you encounter this problem, contact a plumber for professional assistance.
  • To prevent burns and product damage, do not connect the water line to a hot water source.
  • Do not install the water line in areas where temperatures fall below the freezing point.
  • When using any electrical device (such as a motorized drill) during installation, be sure the device is insulated and properly grounded to prevent electric shock.
  • All installations must be in accordance with local plumbing code requirements.
  • The water filter must be replaced as instructed by the manufacturer or the retailer.
  • To purchase additional water filters, contact the manufacturer or the retailer of the filter.

NOTE

  • You can purchase the water line installation kit from your retailer. We recommend using a kit that contains copper tubing and a 6 mm (1/4”) compression nut.
  • In an area with low water pressure (below 20 psi (0.138 mPa)), you can install a booster pump to compensate for the low pressure.
