Many modern refrigerator models come with the capability to automatically make ice and provide cold water, but the refrigerator will need to be connected to the house's water line to do so. This isn't a difficult connection to make in theory, but depending on the logistics of the house water line, the kitchen layout and the model of refrigerator, there are certainly issues to consider before launching into the project. Whether you have a GE or Frigidaire water dispenser tube, you can do basic repairs yourself. First, you'll want to find the cold water line closest to the refrigerator, according to How Stuff Works. This could be the kitchen sink, but you'll also want to check water lines running in the ceiling of the basement.
