Check diameter of pipe. Suspect its quarter inch. You will then probably need to purchase e.g. from ebay etc a 1/4'' to 3/4'' adapter which will allow you to connect your fridge pipe to a typical water pipe connector (i.e. similar connecting a washing machine), assuming you already have an available water conenction in the lcoation of the fridge!

Your defrost drain tube is probably clogged with ice or something. Defrost your refrigerator (put towels around to soak up any excess water), then after it's defrosted, take off the back, lower panel and look for a 1 inch diameter tube coming down from your refrigerator. Remove it and clear out any blockages and then re-assemble everything.
Where you hook the house water line is to the water inlet valve which is a one in two out solonoid controlled valve. One side goes to the water dispenser in the door and the other hooks to the ice maker connection.
So I suspect the long water line you are talking about has had the lines switched at the valve and needs reversed. The long line probably goes up the back of the unit and connects to the ice maker. The one for the water dispenser should hook to the water chiller resevoir and then to the water dispenser.
You need to check for water flow. Is the water flowing when you try to get water at the door? Can you hear it running? If not than it is probably your water valve on the back of the fridge where all the water lines come together at the bottom. If you do hear water running, where is it going? Pull the fridge out and watch the back while you or someone else tries to get water.. You probably have a broken water line. If it is the water valve it is very easy to replace. Unplug the fridge and turn off the water to fridge. The cardboard bottom guard on the back comes off with a 5/16 nut driver. The water valve is blue and has two sets of wires hooked to it. Should also have a 5/16 screw holding it in. Remove the screw. Take a picture of the wires or label them. Unplug the wires and then the tricky part. The water lines come out by pushing in on a little ring right around the tube at the valve. Push in on the ring and while pushing in, pull out the tube.Go get a new water valve and do the reverse to install. Just push the tubes all the way in, no need to push on the ring again. If it is a broken water line then you will need to get more tubing and replace the broken stuff. Do not forget to plug the fridge back in while you get a new water valve or tubing! The wires will be ok.
Find your route to the water line. Drill a hole in the floor behind the refrigerator and thread the copper tubing into the basement. Go to the basement and find the main water line and pull the copper tubing to it.
Step 2 Attach pipe to refrigerator. Go back up to the kitchen and attach the end of the copper tubing to the water pipe of the refrigerator. You can use a nut and ferrule to connect the tube to the fridge. Make sure to leave a little bit of copper tubing coiled behind the fridge so as to not disconnect the tubing when moving the fridge.
Step 3 Turn off the water. With the fridge all hooked up, go back to the basement and turn off the water. Find the cold water pipe and drill a 1/4-inch hole to accommodate the copper tubing.
Step 4 Attach valve to pipe. You need to attach the water valve to the main pipe. This allows you to control the flow of water to the refrigerator. Make sure you have a gasket to seal between the valve and main water pipe.
Step 5 Connect the copper tubing. With the valve connected to the main water pipe, connect the copper tubing using a clamp. This should be everything you need. Turn on the main water and you should be able to get a glass of water, but it will take an hour or two for the ice cubes to freeze.
The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp. The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.
If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.
check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.
Your inlet tube that goes to the icemaker may be frozen.To Check: Shut off water supply to Fridge, disconnect thewater 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 throughto the ice maker, the line is frozen. Thaw out the tube from inside the freezer with a hair dryer. Re-connecteverything, you now have ice . . . Solution #2: You may have to replace your "Water InletValve" located at bottom right rear of Fridge.Easy to do, just follow the color codes, be sure and shut off the water.
You are probably right that it is always running. This is because the thermostat/sensor has gone bad. The fridge adjusts by a door that allows air to come from the freezer to the fridge side. Therefore this will still work...
You will need to replace or have the thermostat replaced....
LOOK ON THE BOTTOM OF THE FREEZER. IS IT FULL OF ICE? IF SO YOU HAVE A DEFROST DRAIN PROBLEM. THE BEST WAY TO REMEDY THIS IS UNPLUG IT OVERNIGHT AND REMOVE THE BACK FREEZER PANEL YOU WILL SEE A HOLE THAT LEADS TO THE DRAIN PAN. YOU NEED TO CLEAR THIS, COMPRESSED AIR WORKS BEST.
the roll of tubing is a storage place to keep cold water before itcomes out the door you just need to hook up the tubing in the rear then bleed the lines thru the door using the water in glass option and get the leak fixed
