Properly installing the supply line hose is critical to avoiding water damage.

  • Tightly connect the hose to the valve, and avoid over-tightening
  • Ensure the valve connection is secure and check for kinks
  • Inspect the hose every six months
  • If kinks are present, replace the hose
  • Leave a three-to-four-inch space between the back of the refrigerator and the wall to prevent the hose from crimping
  • When pulling the refrigerator out for cleaning or service, avoid getting the hose caught beneath the wheel
  • Locate the water shut-off valve
  • Inspect the valve every six months to make sure the water supply will shut off, and replace the valve if needed
