• A cold water supply is required for automatic icemaker

operation. The water pressure must be be tween 40 and
120 p.s.i.

• Route GE SmartConnect

Refrigerator Tubing or 1/4" OD

copper tubing between house cold water line and the
water connection location.

• Measure the distance from the water valve on the back

of the refrigerator to the water supply line. Add 8 foot
length to allow the refrigerator to be moved away from
the wall after installation. Bend the tubing into 3 coils
of about 10".

NOTE: The only GE approved plastic tubing is supplied
in GE SmartConnect

Refrigerator Tubing kits. Do not

use any other plastic water supply line because the line
is under pressure at all times. Certain types of plastic
will crack or rupture with age and cause water damage
to your home.

GE SmartConnect

available in the following lengths:

2' (0.6 m)

– WX08X10002

6' (1.8 m)

Shut off the main water supply.
Turn on the nearest faucet long enough to clear the line
of water.
• Install a shut-off valve between the icemaker water

valve and cold water pipe in a basement or cabinet.
The shut-off valve should be located where it will be
easily accessible.

• Turn on the main water supply and flush debris.

Run about a quart of water through the tubing into
a bucket. Shut off water supply at the shut-off valve.

NOTE: Saddle type shut-off valves are included
in many water supply kits, but are not recommended
for this application.
