A water line allows you to make ice in your refrigerator. Refrigerators that feature built-in water dispensers or automatic ice makers need to be connected to a water source. Fridges without ice makers or water dispensers dont need any type of water source to function properly.
Can I plug in my refrigerator without water?
You can use it as a fridge with just electricity connected. Typically, there is an easy way to shut off the ice maker. If you dont have water connected you should do that in order to reduce possible wear on electric valves and other parts.
Do refrigerators come with water line?
Water lines are typically sold in kits and are not included with the refrigerator. We recommend using a water line installation kit that uses 1/4 inch copper tubing, a 1/4 inch compression nut, and a ferrule.
How long do water filters last in refrigerator?
