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.

Need info on how to hook up ice maker lines


OK the ice maker is the boss. It calls for water. Nothing else in the ice box controls the ice maker water but the ice maker itself. How? Fancier models use capacitance of ice mold to correctly fill the ice mold. On board intel monitors the temp of the ice mold by sending power through it and checking for differences in capacitance in the mold. When it hits the sweet spot it monitors the temp till it temps inside the mold determine ice is there and kicks in the harvest cycle. Older styles simply put a measured amount of water into the ice mold at the end of each harvest cycle. You gotta first run a water line to the water valve and then run a line from the water valve up to the Ice Maker fill spout behind the ice box. Nothing to it.

Ice maker does not work. Water does not full the cubes yet I checked the back and the water line is attached. I can still get water from the door just will not make ice cubes,


You would need a volt meter to narrow waht component has failed. It sounds like you have a sxs unit with ice and water in the door. There is a double valve in the back of the unit (if it's a GE Built Kenmore -it may have a double -double inlet valve). You would need to hook up your volt meter to the inlet valve side for the Ice maker. This is where the 1/4" tubing is going into the valve. Next you need to know haow to harves the Ice maker. Most newer Ice makers have an module in it. ther is a jumper sequence that you need to do in order to get the ice maker to harvest maually. Once the IM is harvesting, note the voltage at the valve - this is not a constant voltage- you would have to wait until the IM is in the cycle where it energizes an internal switch to send 120v to the water valve.. If you are getting 120 V and No water, then you have a bad valve assembly

HOOK UP OF ICE MAKER TO THE WATER LINE


What you have in the back is a 1/4 tube which will feed cold water to the icemaker.

go to any hardware store and ask for an icemaker supply line kit. It will consist of a tapping valve, about ten feet of 1/4 inch tubing and a straight connector.

it will also contain step by step instructions.

You will have to determine what cold water line to tap into that is accessable. Perhaps the kitchen sink cold water supply if it is on the same wall as the refrigerator. Many times the line is run up from the basement.

enjoy your new icemaker.

Ice maker not making ice after replacing water line.


Ice makers are a common problem. On many brands there is a reset button behind the plastic cover. However if you physically see Ice clogging your water inlet to the ice maker, this will without a doubt prevent the ice maker from making ice. Use hot water or a steamer to unclog the ice or you can leave the unit unplugged for a few hours to defrost the freezer. You should be able to hear when the ice maker cycles and lets in water. Note: if you're getting plenty of water out of your in door water dispenser, then it's NOT a water supply problem. You may need to check the solenoid that controls water entering the ice maker.

HOOK UP OF ICE MAKER TO THE WATER LINE


At the back bottom of the fridge there will be a coil solenoid. If your appliance is ice make ready this will be there, these coils have a bracket that has fitting for a water connection. Get a 1/4 tube with a ferrell and nut. slide them on the tube and connect to the fitting.

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!
