How to install ice maker frigidaire step by step?

step1. unplug the refrigerator power cord from {the electrical} outlet or disconnect the power carefully.

Step2. pull the refrigerator away from the wall or cabinet area.

So you’ll be able to easily access the rear panel.

Step3. All meals objects must be removed from the freezer compartment or from the area where the ice maker will be installed.

If an ice maker has not been installed within the refrigerator earlier then you may need to:

Step4. remove a plug from the freezer compartment liner and a label and foam.

Step5. insert from the rear panel to expose the hole where the fill tube shall be inserted.

Step6. unthread the screw.

Step7. remove the wiring cover

so you can access the icemaker wire harness.

Step8. slide the round foam gasket over the end of the fill tube.

Step9. insert the fill tube via the hole within the rear panel with the spout facing down.

Step10. use one or more ½ inch hex-head sheet metal screws to secure the fill tube to the rear panel.

unless you have a model with an open-top fill tube your next step is:

Step11. slide the appropriately sized tube extension over the end of the mounted fill tube.

Step12. Realign the wiring cover over the fill tube routing the wire harness through the slot.

Step13. secure it with the screw.

Step14. peel the backing from the two tubing retaining clips to expose the adhesive.

Step15. Aligned Eclipse on the right aspect of the rear panel areas them close to the center of the panel for side-by-side models or when the freezer is on top and the lower portion of the panel when the freezer is on the bottom.

Step16. unthread the screws securing the lower rear access panel or if applicable to your model the single screws securing the small access cover.

Step17. set the panel or cover aside set up the water inlet valve by first:

  • Connecting the wire connector to the solenoid.

Step18. align the valve bracket on the frame.

Step19. thread and tighten the two half-inch hex head screws to secure.

Step20.  if relevant take away the plastic insert from the fill tube spout.

Step21. align the water valve tubing clamp over the spout.

Step22. thread a 1\/2 inch hex head sheet steel screw by hand to carry the clamp in place however, avoid


Step23. fully insert the steel water tube insert into the end of the tubing.

Step24. slide the end of the tubing into the end of the fill tube spout then tighten the tubing clamp screw.

Step25. with the tubing leading straight down from the fill tube :

  • Press the tubing into the 2 retaining clips.
  • Any access tubing must be looped under the water inlet valve and secured behind the retaining clip.

Step26. earlier than you mount the ice maker:

  • verify that there’s an access hole for the fill tube
  • if not you will need to remove a knockout plug or tab

step27. If this is the first time an ice maker has been put in within the equipment you may need to:

  • remove a blank connector from the wire harness connector.
  • Remove the plugs from the three mounting holes within the liner.

Step28. for side-by-side models you will need to secure mounting clips by threading and tightening three-quarter-inch hex-head sheet steel screws within the top holes.

for models with the freezer on the top or bottom simply.

For models with the freezer on the top or bottom simply thread the screws into the holes permitting them to protrude out far sufficient to be able to hang the icemaker on them.

Step29. set the ice maker within the freezer compartment and connect the wire harness connectors.

Step30.  side-by-side models the icemaker mounting tabs may be slid under the mounting clips in any other case the mounting tabs may be hooked immediately onto the screws as you align the fill tube within the access hole.

Step31. tighten the screws however avoid over-tightening.

Step32. thread and tighten the half-inch hex head sheet steel screw to secure the ice maker’s bottom mounting bracket.

The bottom bracket screws may be loosened to straighten and level the icemaker if needed.

Step33. Retighten.

How to install water supply line and shut off valve in ice maker frigidaire?

if a water supply line and shutoff valve usually are not already obtainable within the home you will have to install them with the cold water supply shut off :

step34. use a quarter-inch drill bit to drill an access hole by way of the front of the closest cold water supply pipe.

Step35. file down any rough edges.

Step36. thread the shut-off valve into the front pipe bracket and tighten it by hand.

Step37. use a wrench to turn the valve an additional 1/8 flip to fully secure.

Step38. slide the rubber seal gasket over the shutoff valves pilot tube.

Step39. insert the pilot tube into the hole within the water pipe position the rear pipe bracket then insert the screws through the brackets and thread on the mounting nuts.

Note: avoid over-tightening the nuts

after ensuring the end of the copper tubing is cut evenly and cleanly:

Step40. Slide on a compression nut and a compression sleeve.

Step41. fully insert the tubing into the outlet connector on the shutoff valve.

Step42. thread and hand tighten the compression nut.

Step43. use a wrench to tighten the nut one additional turn. be sure the opposite end of the tubing is cut evenly and cleanly.

Step44. with the cold water supply turned on:

  • rotate the T handle on the shutoff valve counterclockwise to completely open and flush out the copper tubing.

Step45. after a few seconds shut off the valve and clear the tubing of water.

Step46. slide a strain relief clamp over the copper tubing.

Step47. slide on the compression nut and the compression sleeve.

Step48. remove the protective cap from the inlet fitting on the water inlet valve.

Step49. absolutely insert the tubing into the water inlet connector.

Step50. thread and hand tighten the compression nut.

Step51. use a wrench to tighten the nut one additional turn.

Step52. open the shut-off valve once more.

Step53. verify each shut-off valve and the water inlet valve for leakage.

if any leaks appear you may:

  • tighten the compression nut in small increments till the leakage stops.

Step54. replace the rear access panel or cover and secure it with the screws.


electrical shock hazard plug into a grounded three-prong outlet

  • don’t take away floor Prag
  • don’t use an adapter
  • don’t use an extension cord

failure to comply with these directions can result in death fire or electrical shock.

Step55. plug the fridge power cord back into {the electrical} outlet.

Step56.  Carefully push the appliance back into its correct location.
