My Qualifications

If soldering, you will be soldering copper pipe straight up to the fridge eliminating a large chance of leakage that most other types of connections bow to eventually. Comments are not for promoting your articles or other sites. You are almost done! Set the ice maker to the "on" position as indicated in your specific model.

Hooking Up the Refrigerator Ice Maker

Hand-tighten the fitting, then tighten three-quarters of a turn using a small wrench on both sides of the fitting. Attach the nut to the refrigerator valve. Turn on the water supply.

      Plug in your refrigerator and check your manufacturer's manual for flushing your dispenser's filters once you have completed the hookup. An hour project of drilling and running flexible hose is well worth the pleasure of ice on demand.

      Turn the water on to flush the tube into a pail for at least 1 quart or until the water runs clear.

      For flex lines, install your saddle valve and drill through cabinets or joists to run your line to your fridge. This flex line can be copper, or plastic like the ones that come in a refrigerator water installation kit - these can be picked up at the hardware store, and they should have everything you need including the saddle valve.
