When connecting an icemaker to the water line, leave extra tubing coiled behind the fridge to allow the appliance to be pulled forward for service and maintenance. Copper tubing is recommended for this installation because it is the most durable. Plastic tubing in this application can become brittle over time, when exposed to the heat of the compressor and condenser, and fracture causing water damage to the floor.
Do not install the refrigerator water supply valve on the underside of the water pipe. Over a period of time, scale and lime residue will tend to settle in the valve and clog it.
Use the ice dispenser occasionally during the winter months even if just to discard the ice. Long periods of non-use can cause the ice dispenser to jam.
