If the refrigerator was designed for water there will be a connection in back with a 1/4 inch compression type fitting to connect the water to. You may need to purchase a kit with a saddle valve and 1/4 in hose to route from the saddle valve to the refrigerator.

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.

Ice from ice maker does not taste right


Hi

Ice storage bin needs to be emptied and washed. Unsealed packages in the refrigerator and/or freezer compartments may be transmitting odors/tastes to the ice cubes.
Interior of the refrigerator may need cleaning.
Water chemicals. Installing an in-line filter can help with many odor/taste complaints.
An open box of baking soda in the refrigerator section can help with preventing the transmitting of food odors.
This is a common in-line water filter, they are fairly easy to install and usually come with instructions.

3925f83.jpg
Even when your well or municipal water supply provides healthy, potable water to your ice maker, some impurities may remain. These can affect the smell or taste of the ice cubes, and therefore the beverages in which you serve them. A taste and odor water filter on the incoming water-supply line--such as our charcoal "Universal Replacement Water Filter"--can help a lot.

Also, over time, the ice cube bin can absorb difficult-to-remove odors from the freezer. Some manufactures recommend that you replace the bin every 2 to 3 years, whenever it seems to be retaining objectionable odors and transferring them to the ice cubes.


A Fixya Rating would be appreciated.

Thanks

Water line broken for Kenmore refrigerator near compressor


Cut off a piece of line and go to a good hardware store, they can show you how to fix it. Need a coupling, and a nut and ferrel. House water line goes on one end of coupling, nut and ferrel on the broken water line on fridge. A good hardware store will be able to show you how to fix.
