Have your American fridge installed

You're super happy with your American fridge, which churns out cold water and ice cubes. Of course, the fridge needs to be properly connected to both electricity and water. We have some tips to help you connect the fridge in the best possible way.

Connecting the American fridge

Before connecting the fridge, it is important to find a good spot. The place must meet a number of requirements:

A hard surface
Away from a heat source

It is important to consider the doors. Make sure there is enough space for both doors to open.

Supplies

Water connection
Screwdriver
Water pump pliers
Supply hose
Spirit level
Tensioning nut
Coupling piece

What to do

Figure out the right place for the fridge. It is important to consider the doors. Make sure there is enough space for both doors to open.
Check that the fridge is level to avoid any damage to the fridge or floor. If necessary, rotate the leveling feet.
Check that the refrigerator doors hang straight. You can adjust them with a clamping nut.
Connect the water: To do this, turn off the main tap first.
Connect the fridge to the tap. To do this, use a water pump and a supply hose. It is important to close the main tap when doing this. Using a connector, connect the hose to the water supply.
As soon as the fridge is connected to the water supply, you can turn the main tap back on.
