I've been in the do-it-yourself business for over 20 years, and have worked for schools, businesses, and homeowners. In addition, I have organized seminars to teach and offer hands-on experience to homeowners and hardware employees alike. Check with your area's building code before starting any job, and always seek professional advice if you feel the level of workmanship is beyond your capabilities. When you are replacing an existing refrigerator that already has a water line hooked up, that makes your job a whole lot easier.
How to Connect a Water Line to Your Refrigerator
Here is a step-by-step water line installation refrigerator guide. A new refrigerator with a water dispenser and ice maker needs to be hooked up to a COLD water line. Usually behind where a refrigerator is installed, there will be a water valve that you can use to hook cold water to your fridge. If there is no water valve behind your fridge, you will have to run a water line to the closest cold water pipe to get your refrigerator access to water.
A refrigerator with an automated ice maker and a built-in water dispenser does absolutely nothing if you do not have a water line to connect to it. You can solve this with an ice maker installation kit that allows you to use the plumbing beneath the sink. The kit provides you with the required parts to hook up a water line to your refrigerator.
