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.

Hi, If you purchase a water line kit, it will come with all the fittings you need. There should be a inlet valve behind the rear panel in back.You need a 1/4" line with fitting. It also comes with a saddle valve you need to hook up the water supply. These can be found at any hardware store.
If I can assist you further, please let me know.

Make sure the metal lever on the ice maker is in the lower on position. Check that the water valve for the 1/4 inch supply line is attached to the fridge and to the valve . Screw that water valve all the way in and then all the way out.

Your drain line is frozen and is not allowing the defrost water to drain to the pan below. You will need to remove the rear panel in the freezer and thaw the drain line. Make sure ALL ice is thawed before reassembling. I would recommend installing a drain heater so it will not happen again. They are inexpensive and easy to install. They come with complete instructions.

I have a Kenmore Coldspot Model #69207990 and have the same problem. Water from the freezer drains into the refridgerator onto the shelves and sheets of ice form. A repairman pointed out that the tube leading down from the freezer onto the drain pan was frozen. By pouring hot water down the tube, he reopened this drain line. Problem solved for six months and the drain line froze again. My question is how to stop this drain line from freezing up again.

Ice maker will not produce Ice


Make suer the freezer temp is 5 degrees or lower. If not the ice maker will not operate. Also make sure that you have water pressure at the back of the fridge. If so, you most likely have a bad water valve. It is what your water supply connects to. You can test it like this. Disconect the water line on the fridge side of the valve. Unplug the wires from the valve. Supply 110v to the plug. If water comes out from where you disconected the line, the valv is good. If not, you will need to replace it. If you can't find the answer with this. Reply back and I'll talk you through until we find it.
