Water shooting out the icemaker hose

I hooked up the lines and water goes heywire, from the right place but to strong, it gets everywhere. Does the line need to be regulated?

(I hooked up the lines and water goes heywire) You hooked up the lines to what? If you changed the water valve you may have the dispenser and ice maker lines reversed along with the electrical connections to the top of the valves.

How do i make my icemaker work

If it came with the refrigerator then everything is hooked up with the exception of the water line in the back, which if you go to home depot you can ask for a stainless steel icemaker line and they'll get it for you. Then all you have to do is connect one end of the line to the faucet if there is one, and the other end to the valve which is at the lower right or left hand side, normally on the right if your standing behind it. Now if there isn't a water connection behind the fridge your going to have to locate a water supply and then when you get the icemaker line tell them you need a installation kit.

How do I hook up the plumbing. Do you have an exploded diagram of the back panel where all the water hook ups are at.

It depends on the refridgerator. Some have two inlet valves. Basically, you have a water line from the home. Usually copper line. You also will have two places for water lines on the opposite side of the inlet valve. Sometimes you may only have one. The line leading from fridge ( if ice and water through door) will hookup to the line where you have the fridge connactor. The quick connects to the inlet valve. The second one will be for ice maker. That water line runs up the back of fridge into freezer. Make sure you place the quick connects in the right spot. Process of elimination because some inlet valves wont let you change the hoses once installed. Connect the main water line from the home. Connect both quick connects dont connect water lines yet. Push the water thru the door botton and see which valve opens on the inlet. Which valve on inlet opened and allowed water to come out. That is for fridge and other is for icemaker.

If you need further assistance please feel free to contact.

Corrosion around icemaker intake line and water squirting out

The water shoot is the water line on the back of the freezer where your water enters the icemaker. What has probably happened is the water shoot has filled with ice and left enough space for water to spray out. What you will need to do is get a blowdryer and aim it towards the water shoot till the ice has cleared. This should resolve your problem. I hope I have helped you.

Have a HOTPOINT CTX18GI fridge. Automatic icemaker doesn't work, but don't know if it's the actual ice maker or any of the switches. Water is going to the line from the sink plumbing via a standard small...

Have you tried raising the arm of the ice maker and leaving it for awhile then push it back down and see if it will work? Should be a cover that is over the plug take the cover off and unplug the ice maker, shouldn't be that hard to take off. I believe you have to squeeze the top and bottom together to remove it but Im not positive.

I just moved and trying to hook up the icemaker/water dispenser. I see a tubing that goes from the top of the frig to the bottom, but there is no line that comes out to hook into the wall. I do not even...

Yes, it was hooked up at the last location, but I wasn't the one who put installed the frig, and the movers disconnected it, so I don't know how it was done.

U-line icemaker

There's a screen at the inlet to the water valve, might be plugged up. Most likely the case of you are getting a least a little water. Also, the water supply pressure to the unit might be low.

You can get to the screen right at the water valve inlet, it's right behind the brass hose connector on the blue water valve at the rear of the unit.

Installing water hose's

  • it is kind of hard to explain without being there, so please bear with me. 
  • if the refrigerator has a water filter then 2 lines will will go to it, probably diagonally up the back of the refrigerator. the water goes through the filter first then back to the valve.
  •  then another line will go strait up the back of the refrigerator to the icemaker.
  •  the line that goes under the refrigerator is for the water dispenser in the door.
  •  the water valve should have come with instructions on which line goes where on the valve, there is now way for me to convey this to you. the valve assembly you described is proprietary for your machine.
  • if you need more help let me know, i will try to help you figure it out.
