That nut is a common 1/4" compression nut. You can find one at any local hardware or at a Lowes or Home Depot store. Mkae sure that you have a furrel also that you will need with the nut to make the seal.

Need to disconnect water line at back of frig to move it temporarily while floor is replaced. Connected with compression fitting and ferrule.


You may be forced to cut the copper pipe and buy a new compression fitting and ferrule and add it to the cut off end of the copper tubing when you decide to re-hookup the refrigerator.
Remember to cut the pipe , if you choose to do so, with a tubing cutter so as not to "smash" the cut end.
This problem can happen any time dissimilar metals are joined, they can "freeze" together.
God bless your efforts.

I need the copper tubing for air ace compressor td2550


I usually do not replace tubing with factory replacement part. I use soft copper tube from plumbing shop or major lumber store like Lowes. Soft copper comes in standard sizes with ferrules and compression nut. Some tubing is metric and can be ordered from suppliers off internet. Factory tubing sold as part number is difficult /impossible to find and is expensive. Good luck

Plumbing in water supply to fridge.


if this is for ice maker this is how its done. run the line through the floor in back of fridge to a cold water pipe. closest to where fridge sits.
  • Turn off the cold water supply to the pipes.
  • Attach a pipe clamp to the cold water pipe.
  • Screw a packing nut into the cold water pipe. Turn the packing nut until it punctures and taps into the pipe. Attach ¼-inch copper tubing to the outlet valve on the packing nut using a compression nut. Make certain the valve is closed before you secure the packing nut.
  • Attach the copper tubing to the intake connection using a compression nut. to back of fridge,
  • Turn on the cold water supply.
  • Turn on the outlet valve on the packing nut.

  • the kit should have directions with it. good-day !

    How do I replace the water line in the door?


    Hello,

    Find your route to the water line. Drill a hole in the floor behind the refrigerator and thread the copper tubing into the basement. Go to the basement and find the main water line and pull the copper tubing to it.

    Step 2
    Attach pipe to refrigerator. Go back up to the kitchen and attach the end of the copper tubing to the water pipe of the refrigerator. You can use a nut and ferrule to connect the tube to the fridge. Make sure to leave a little bit of copper tubing coiled behind the fridge so as to not disconnect the tubing when moving the fridge.

    Step 3
    Turn off the water. With the fridge all hooked up, go back to the basement and turn off the water. Find the cold water pipe and drill a 1/4-inch hole to accommodate the copper tubing.

    Step 4
    Attach valve to pipe. You need to attach the water valve to the main pipe. This allows you to control the flow of water to the refrigerator. Make sure you have a gasket to seal between the valve and main water pipe.

    Step 5
    Connect the copper tubing. With the valve connected to the main water pipe, connect the copper tubing using a clamp. This should be everything you need. Turn on the main water and you should be able to get a glass of water, but it will take an hour or two for the ice cubes to freeze.

    Take care..

    Waterline on back of refridgerator keeps popping out and leaking


    There should be a compression fitting that seals the water tube to the fridge. The fitting looks like a brass or plastic nut that the tubing sticks into. Shut off water supply to the fridge and carefully remove the fitting nut...there should be cone shaped compression ring inside the fitting nut. Slide the nut over the tube, then the compression ring over the tube. If the compression ring is tapered towards one end, then put the narrow end towards the end of the tube. Now stick the tube up to the fitting on the fridge where the nut screws on to the fridge. Hold the tubing firmly against the fitting and slide the compression ring and nut up to the fitting and screw the nut back on (compression ring should be inside the nut). You must hold the tubing firmly against the fitting until you get the nut tightened back down good with a wrench. This should take care of it.

    If you find that the tip of your tube end is damaged, then you may have to cut off the tip of the tube to get it to seal and hold. If you find that the compression ring is damaged (won't slide over the tubing) or missing, then you can go to Lowe's or Home Depot and get a new nut and compression ring...they are cheap. You can also get new tubing there if you need it.

    Having trouble starting installation of copper tubing for ice maker. How do I connect the copper tubing to the refrigerator?


    The tubing connects to the water valve. You should loop the copper in a manner so that when you pull out the ice box to work on it the copper will not break. Snug up your compression nut to the valve. Turn the water on. If it leaks tighten it a hair till its tight. That way you won't over tighten the compression fitting.68bd8a2.jpg

    Thinking about getting a fridge with a water dispenser - do I need to have a conection to a water pipe


    Yes, With a water dispenser or even an ice maker you need to connect to a cold water pipe. The connection is a simple "saddle valve" which clamps over your water line and then you screw a sharp piercing point into the water line. After peircing the water line you back the point back out to let the water flow. A 1/4" tubing either plastic or copper will go from the valve to the back of the refrigerator. The tubing hooks to the back of the refrigerator with a simple slip or compression fitting.
    You can run the tubing for long distances if you need to but usually in a kitchen area it is not too far to find a water pipe.
    So go ahead and buy that fridge that you want, knowing that the hookup will be a simple easy, procedure!!

    Thanks for using Fixya!!

    Water supply line pops off the valve and sprays the wall get on floor and winds up in the basement when water is requested by ice maker. How do you correct???


    Your fill tube (supplys water directly to icemaker ) is frozen up inside the freezer . You need to replace the water valve due to slow leakage letting the drips freeze inside the tube eventually freezing solid and when icemaker calls for water , the water pressure blows the small tubing out of the fill tube .

    Water leak at filter


    I had this with a Kitchenaid Superba and wanted to get rid of the filter holder assembly entirely as I have an undersink unit which serves the fridge. I removed the plastic line (nut) at the back of the fridge (which led to the filter holder at the front) where the flexible copper tubing inserted (this was a 3/8' compression fitting-plastic) and also the returning line (1/4" copper compression nut on a plastic line) at the manifold (again in the back of the fridge) where it gets split between the water line and the ice line. I then just connected the 1/4" flexible copper directly to the manifold (1/4" nut, compression sleeve, male-male connector) using a pre-made 1/4" flexible compression line. Sounds complicated but after seeing how the water routes it was fairly quick work.

    Try closing the water valve slightly to reduce the water pressure to the unit.
