Help!  My first house - just bought it  and my first side by side with water/ice in the door.  Fridge is used so no instructions came with it.   I have a plastic tube coming out of my water supply under the sink, another plastic tube coming out of the back of the fridge and a metal flex tube also coming out of the back of the fridge with a filter hooked to it.   Now - what do I need to do to get ice and water to come out of my refrigerator door????  Is there a special part that I need that will hook all of these tubes together to make something wonderful happen?

 

Thanks,

lmstraw6

Ok - I am using the wrong kind of tubing, but the plastic tubing is already there.  There is tubing already out of the water supply and tubing also connected to the fridge.  How do I connect these tubes together?   Also - how does the filter fit into the equation - it has a tube of it's own as well.

Thanks for your patience with me - I have never done this kind of thing before.

The tubing from the water supply connects to the water inlet valve on the fridge. Then a separate tubing starts from the other side of the valve to supply water to the icemaker.


Also - how does the filter fit into the equation - it has a tube of it's own as well.


If your water filter is built into the fridge, don't worry about it-- the tubing is all done internally.

If no built-in filter, then you could easily install an in-line filter. See this page for details.
