You may have three water supply lines beneath the sink; two lines connect directly to the faucet while the third line connects to the dishwasher. Thread copper tubing through the hole you just drilled. Skip to main content. If there is no water dispenser, throw away the first full batch or two of ice to make sure it is all clean and ready to use. Saddle valves normally have a T handle that acts as a shutoff: Before installing the plastic tubing into the refrigerator fitting, cut the tubing to an appropriate length.

Fittings Needed to Connect an Ice Maker to Plastic Tubing
Cut the Plastic Tubing Before installing the plastic tubing into the refrigerator fitting, cut the tubing to an appropriate length. You're ready to connect the copper tubing. Make sure you leave extra tubing coiled behind the refrigerator, so you can move the refrigerator when necessary. Attach one end of the copper tubing to the refrigerator's water pipe, using a nut and ferrule. Snake the tubing backward, starting at the fridge so the coiled portion remains there. OK so install an inline valve in the plastic line accessible behind the refrigerator and cut out the kinked sections of the existing line.
