Question about Refrigerators
Some fridges will not work without a filter. Additionally, it may take a while of dispensing water before water actually flows completely through the system. Most fridges use a small solenoid that snaps open and closed to allow water to flow and stop. The solenoid is usually loud enough to hear without too much difficulty. The ice maker (if installed) has a solenoid for it, too. Both solenoids are often very close to each other at the bottom of the backside (on the rear) of the fridge. This should run automatically as long as the ice detection arm is in the lowered position.
Also, make sure that the water supply line was not kinked when slipping the fridge into its resting place. Make sure the wheels or supports haven't come to rest on top of the line (crushing it) either. Make sure the water valve at the point of attachment to the home's cold water pipe is on. Some of the piercing type valves work a little differently than you may expect. Check the instructions on the package for the valve to make sure it's really on.
I hope this points you in the right direction & good luck.
