We have a Samsung side by side. Ice maker on the top as part of frig. water is leaking and I see the ice stopper is not closing to keep the warm air from entering the ice compartment. Any ideas

If the icemaker is leaking water onto the floor:
  • Turn off the icemaker and then turn off the water supply to the icemaker. See Icemaker On/Off Switch.
  • The water supply line is usually located under the kitchen sink.
  • Locate the cold water line and look for a small 1/4" copper line attached to it. Where these two lines meet, there will be a saddle valve. This is the shut-off valve. Turn this valve in a clockwise manner until it stops. This will shut off the water to the icemaker.

Which water line or lines do I connect to refrigerator, model # ED22RFXW01, man. 08/99

It's advisable to go with flexible plastic tube with sweet water supply. Please follow the instrction as per video attached.

Even if your refrigerator comes withan automatic icemaker, you will need to connect it to a water supply for it tomake ice. While this is not a particularly difficult job it requires someknowledge of plumbing and the use of tools. ThingsYou'll Need:
  • Compression Nuts
  • Knife Or Scissors
  • T-valves
  • 1/4-inch Copper Or Plastic Tubes
  • Drill Bits
  • Variable-speed Drills
  • Drill Bits
Read theinstruction manual that came with your refrigerator. Specific instructions forhooking up the icemaker may be included. Locate thepipe nearest the icemaker that carries cold water. Most often, this is the coldwater pipe that connects to the kitchen sink. Install at-valve in the main cold water line - not on the 3/8-inch faucet tubes - sothat there are two outlets: one to the sink and one to the icemaker supplyline. Turn offthe water. Put asleeve and compression nut over the line that will supply the icemaker in orderto tightly connect it to the water line. Turn thewater back on, and, holding the end of the tubing in the sink or over a bucket,flush the line to remove any debris. Turn the water off again. Snake theline from the water source to the icemaker connection, drilling holes in thebacks of cabinets if you have to in order to push the line through. Find theicemaker inlet from the refrigerator and attach the other end of the line usinganother compression nut. Turn thewater back on. Throw awaythe first few containers of ice to be sure the line is completely clean beforeyou use the ice.

Will not dispense ice or water, beeps when lever is pushed, no interior light in frig part. both frig and freezer work, freezer light works

Your inlet tube that goes to the icemaker may be frozen. To Check: Shut off water supply to Fridge, disconnect the water line that goes to the icemaker at top back. Use a flexible item to insert in the water line connection. I used a zip tie. If the flexible item won't all the through to the ice maker, the line is frozen. Thaw out the tube from inside the freezer with a hair dryer. Re-connect everything, you now have ice . . . Solution #2: You may have to replace your "Water Inlet Valve" located at bottom right rear of Fridge. Easy to do, just follow the color codes, be sure and shut off the water.

Water squirts out the back of my Kitchen Aid Superba where the water line enters the fridge. This happens when the ice maker tries to fill with water.

make sure that the water supply line is tight. the line that comes from the wall should be copper or stainless steel braided line. if it is the clear plastic line get rid of it as it is more prone to kink and leak especially at the points where the connections are made... another thing to check is where the supply line connects to the frig.. that is the solinoid valve and on the top is a blue or clear plastic cap and somtimes they will crack or have a small pin hole in them and will spray a very fine stream of water that is hard to see but can be felt on your finger tip.. pull out the frig and empty the ice tray and put it back in and close the freezer door or drawer and wait for the ice maker to call for water and have a bright flashlight ready, when it calles for water you will only have about 5-7 seconds to see where the leak is so make sure to feel around as well.; if your are replacing the ice maker supply line from the wall to the frig make sure to not over tighten the connection to the frig because it may cause that plastic cap to crack....I hope this helps....

Installing to the mains water supply

if you want to connect to an icemaker, youll need about a 1/4" plastic line,could be bigger or smaller, depending on model.. then you need a saddle valve to connect to cold water line. Go to home depot or your local hardware and they can help.
