If you mean icemaker or water supply it's easy you just have to connect a water pipe 1/4 to your main water supply of your sink 1/2 inch. Just putting a valve first on the 1/2 pipe reducing to 1/4 & you bring it to your water valve solenoid of the fridge. That's it!

Why does my daewoo fridge freezer works intermittently ?


You either have a faulty thermostat, a loose connection or most likely a build up of ice inside the freezer. I had the same problem. Almost replaced fridge. Took all the food out one day, took out the racks and disassembled bottom and rear and found a two foot log block of ice inside air return. Removed ice everything works perfectly.

Kelvinator fridge freezer


  • If your refrigerator leaks water, you have a problem with either a water line or a drain line. If your refrigerator has an automatic icemaker or a water dispenser, the water supply line could be broken. Automatic icemakers have a drain line that runs down to the drain pan beneath the fridge. Mold build-up inside the drain line can lead to a rupture that allows water to escape .A broken drain line can also lead to water leaking from your refrigerator.

Kenmore water hose


If it is not connected to the freezer unit - it cannot make ice.. Ice is frozen water - you have connected a separate line that seems to have nothing to do with the fridge unit.

Water leaking from underneath. Not currently


This could be a blocked drain.Behind the fridge is a hose/pipe running from the inside of the fridge down to the compressor where the water will then evaporate.If this pipe is blocked,the water will push up back into the fridge.Try to blow the hose clean from inside the fridge.This should solve your problem.

Hello!ad my black glass fridge freezer delivered today with ice n water dispenser and plummer cudnt work out instructions if the water filter canister goes on the inside or out! also where does the pipe...


Post your model number for filter help. The water supply hook to the water inlet valve on the back, Usually near the bottom. It has a fitting where the incoming water will fit. You may have to remove part of the cardboard on the back to get to it.

I have a Kenmore side/side with water dispenser and ice maker. Ice maker is not making ice, but I still get water. Every once in awhile I see a puddle under fridge (a large puddle). When I pull the fridge...


Hi TJ,

It'll cost around $65.00 to take care of this problem. The problem is the water inlet valve. The part number is 4389177 and can be picked up at your local appliance parts retailer or you can get one online maybe for a better price (just plug the part number into your favorite search engine).

Here's what's happening... The valve I mentioned is actually a "dual coil" unit. One coil supplies the cold water, the other feeds the ice maker. These "coils" are independant of each other, so one coil can fail and the other can keep on truckin', no problem. But what you have is an Ice Maker coil/valve that is weak and it's allowing water to bypass.

Basically the IM valve isn't closing shut completely. Imagine a dripping faucet... that's what it's like except you can't hear the drops, you can only see the results. Imagine drop by drop rising up that tube behind the fridge and into the IM. One drop at a time. These drops of water go into the freezer compartment through the IM fill tube. Now when these little ***** drops slide down the fill tube inside the freezer compartment they flash freeze before they reach the IM. One drop after another... drip drop drip drop. All these little droplets of water eventually form a glacier inside the fill tube. 

OK, now we're at the point of glatiation. The fill tube (just behind the ice maker) has completely frozen solid. Now... when the IM "calls" for water to refill itself, the (failed) valve opens up and lets full pressure through. But where is this water/pressure going to go? The pressure builds inside the 1/4" water line until it can't handle it any more, the pressure looks for the path of least resistance. That path is the connection that you found loose. It blew out because the fill tube (into the freezer) is blocked with ice and the reason it's blocked is because the valve isn't shutting off completely.

That's alot of words to say this... it's an easy fix. Get the valve (above). Pull the fridge out. Unplug it. Turn the water off at the wall. Remove the water line going into the valve and set aside. Remove the cardboard panel. Remove the 2 screws holding the valve to the fridge. Pull the valve out. Note the electrical and tubing connections carefully. Get your new valve out and install the electrical and tubing just like the old one. Then rebuild, turn on the water and look for any leaks (use a flashlight and take a minute or two here... finding a leak now will save you alot of misery later). Replace the cardboard and plug it back in.

There ya go! Your first major appliance repair job done successfully? Priceless.

12v &240v connections on an ENGEL COOLER


AUTOMATIC AC/DC CHANGEOVER: All Engel Fridge Freezers can be plugged into both AC and DC at the same time. The Engel is smart enough to use the AC while available and then automatically switch to DC when the AC is no longer working. It will also sense the resumption of AC power and automatically switch back to AC making it ideal for high hurricane areas and places where power disruption is common.
