Question about Amana 22.6 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator with FrontFill Ice and Water

1 Answer

Copper waterline is broken

I bought a house with an amana fridge and the copper waterline is broke in the back. It looks like it may have been hooked into the fridge on a piece that is hanging out. This piece is connected to a larger copper piece on the back of the fridge. How can I hook a new copper line in. If that is the line I need to hook it to how can i remove it from whatever that larger copper piece is.

Hi .. there should be piping connectors at each end of the tubing. I would disconnect those connectors andtake them to the building supply store and get new fittings and a new supply hose. The new hose does not need to be copper,. you do not need to cut the existing fittings off the wall or the fridge, the new fittings, or new hose can connect directly to the old fittings. my tool of choice is a pair of crescent wrenches

We received a used Kitchenaide Superba fridge & the waterline is sticking out from bottom front of the fridge, & Iappears to have been cut or broken. I'd like to connect it to our pipe under the sink....


Go to the hardware store and buy a "Fridge Ice maker connection kit". It will come with copper tubing and fittings you will need to hook it up. You will also need a "T" fitting to connect it to your water line at the sink.

Having thermostat problems in my Maytag fridge/bottom freezer. Pulled the fridge out and vacuumed everything. This am the copper coil on the back outside is leaking water drop by drop. The coil is not hot/...


The copper coil on the back comes from the compressor and is what makes the fridge cold but it is filled with gas. They can condensate and drip water but this isn't usually enough to notice, or cause damage. I would actually suggest looking again to check the exact source of the water. Be aware that some water from the defrost cycle is supposed to drip into the evaporator tray at the back.

The Ice Maker does not make ice and the water dispenser only flows a small dribble of water.


Problem is with water delivery. If this problem slowly developed, could be waterline connection to house water line. Trace water line from fridg to connection to house copper . If connection is a "piercing valve", turn valve all the way out then all the way back. This may clear it and restore pressure.

Also could be fill valve malfunction.Usually it's accessible behind kick panel.Give it a tap or replace.

If you have a water filter ,replace that as well.

hope this helps

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..

Fridge is running, but is not cold, and food in freezer almost all defrosted. copper pipe at back of fridge looks like it has broken apart, but no idea if these copper pipes are supposed to be like this....


touch those copper pipe to feel if it is hot (be cautious it must have to be); else call your customer care of refrigerator to fill out gas in cylinder. definitely this will solve the issue

We purchased foreclosure house that has a GE fridge tpx21prx-possibly 13 years old-no info but does it need filter for ice and water use? There is no filter inside fridge-does copper line need replacing...


This model does not have a filter for the ice and water, you can add an inline filter in back of fridge water line, they sell them at any hardware store, you dont need to change copper line unless it is corroded.

How do i connect water to my refrigerator


I'm assuming that you have a water and ice dispenser in the door. OK, The simplest and quickest way to do this is to go to a home improvement store such as The Home Depot,and buy an water/ice maker tube installation kit. This kit includes: 15 feet of 1/4 tubing,the 2 brass fittings you'll need, and a water filter. Once you get this kit,there will be instructions on how to assemble the brass nut and ferrel fittings. Then you'll have to find the water valve on the back of the fridge,usually it's on the lower right hand corner if your'e facing the back of the fridge.If you don't see it,you may have to pull back the little cardboard tab to expose it. Now hook up the hose kit you just bought to the valve on the fridge and then hook up the other end of the hose to house water valve. Then turn on the water and you are ready to go. NOTE: If your house doesn't have a valve already,then you'll have to buy a kit that you install under your kitchen sink,this kit has a piercing valve that you connect to you cold water side copper 3/8 tubing. If you don't have copper tubing visible,then you'll have to buy a 3-way (T) and just install it under your sink.

Have broken ice maker waterline. Water everywhere. Cant find a waterline that will work can you help me?


For starters turn off the water at the faucet that controls that line. It is most likely behind the fridge, or in the basement where that 1/4 inch line comes up to feed the fridge. The waterline is 1/4" and is available at any hardware store, home depot, lowes.
