How to install the water for the ice maker


To hook up an water supply to an ice maker falls under two catagories. The first being that a water supply valve is already present behind the machine and therefore all you have to do is get a water line, preferably a braided steel ice maker line that can be purchased at home depot or lowes. Then you just sonnect the water line to the water supply at the wall the to the water valve on the machine, located on the lower right or left side in the back. The second scenario is yoo don't have a supply line, and in that case your going to have to locate the nearest water line, most likely under the sink, and you'll have to run a line. They have an ice maker installation kit at home depot and lowes, and you may have to drill a hole through the cabinet to make the line unseen, or even through the floor and back up again. Either way its not a difficult task, just takes time and patience. Good luck.

If you are referring to the ice maker water supply it usually connects to the hot water line of the kitchen sink by using a saddle valve like the ones that come in an "ice maker connection kit"

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.

  • first make sure the metal arm to the right of it is lowered, this turns the icemaker on. 
  • then you can check the water supply to make sure it is turned on, sometimes when houses are vacant they turn the water off as a precaution. the valve may be behind the refrigerator or under the sink in the kitchen.
  • then...
The refrigerator has a duel water valve, one for the ice-maker and one for the water dispenser (if equipped). The valve that the ice-maker relies on may be bad, or it could be the ice-maker itself. 
Another thing that could cause it would be the temperatures in the freezer. The ice-maker will not call for water until it reaches under 15 degrees. In addition, check the water tube behind the ice-maker to make sure it is not frozen, blocking more water from entering. The water does not go to the ice-maker or thru the filter unless the ice-maker turns on the water valve.

How to install the water hose


you have to have a ice maker install kit that you you can buy at any hardware store if you dont have a water source in the wall behind the ref.(if you have it in the wall you will need a ice maker hose only) but if you have to buy the kit it has a tap valve that you put on the COLD water supply under the sink if you have pvc, poly or quest you will need a special tee. route tubing so it wont interfere with foot traffic to behind the ref. the kit will have a brass nut and a flange put the nut over the tubing then put flange inside the end of the tubing the locate water inlet valve on ref.screw nut onto capped end of valve (remove cap first) then turn on the water and bleed water through ref.using water dispenser on the door until you get water then enjoy. oh kit has instructions in it also good luck
