It will either be 1/4 inch or 3/8 inch. It depends on your manufacturer.

Hi, Go to your local hardware store and pick up an ice maker fill line kit. It comes with the water line and the valve to hook up to a water source. The water line is 1/4" diameter tubing.
I hope this helps you.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Fridge freezer gurgle noise problem. Freezer window flashes replace filter . New filter installed. Noise continues emanating from freezer. Help please


The problem is AIR In The Line. Either you have a leak in the water line or the filter was not tight. In some cases, people screw the filter in wrong, and cross-tread when screwing the filter back into the fridge. If the filter gasket failed to make a tight seal, air can enter and cause a noise. If the water l;ine has a small pin hole, when water is flowing within the tube, it too can make a noise. That can happen when drawing water down for drinking or when the ICE Maker is reloading the tray.

I just bought a used kenmore elite side by side refrigerator and hooked up the water line to the back of the fridge. My question is where does the long water line the goes to the fridge and comes back...


Where you hook the house water line is to the water inlet valve which is a one in two out solonoid controlled valve. One side goes to the water dispenser in the door and the other hooks to the ice maker connection.

So I suspect the long water line you are talking about has had the lines switched at the valve and needs reversed. The long line probably goes up the back of the unit and connects to the ice maker. The one for the water dispenser should hook to the water chiller resevoir and then to the water dispenser.

I have an LG side by side LSC27910ST The water


My fridge was hooked up with a self tapping fridge line. I had two different plumbers/repairmen tell me that if the water flow ever slowed I should switch it to a dual line water shutoff, with one going to the sink and one going to the fridge. I did this and it more than solved my problem. The water now flows way quicker than ever.

Oh and I always had good water flow within the guidelines, as in filling a bucket with the line that goes into the fridge. It was a pretty easy fix that only involved one run to home depot. Make sure to note the size of the line that goes into your sink or even just take that hose with you.

before you hook up the line to the fridge, have someone open the valve to verify that water flows to the tube, once verified, hook to the inlet valve and your golden.

The water coming out of the water dispenser in our GE Profile PSC25PSWA fridge is hot--hot enough to take a bath in. We don't know why the water is suddenly not being cooled and think this is causing...


Is this a new fridge that was recently installed? Because the only thing I can think of that could be causing hot water coming out of the water dispenser is either the installer/tech hooked up the fridge water inlet line to a hot water line somewhere.

Either that, or there is so much extra plastic water line running around in back and/or bottom of the fridge, that the water in the line is getting heated up by being in contact with the condensor coils or the compressor, etc.

No doubt, this is an interesting situation and some more background will likely be needed to get to the source of the problem, especially since you didn't mention any problems with cooling in the fridge or freezer.

Hope this was Very Helpful and let us know some more info, if my basic hunches aren't the problem. Best regards!

How to hook up Ice & Water dispenser on freezer door


The water valve is on the back of the refrigerator. The water line connects directly to that valve. If there is no line available then you will need to run one from a cold water line in the plumbing using a drill type (1/4") saddle valve on that pipe. Hope this helps. If you need more instruction let me know!
