I am having my kitchen fitted and it includes one of these side-by-side
american fridge\\freezers with chilled water and ice dispenser.
So it has to be plumbed into the cold water supply.
The kit included a Filter kit which includes a filter and a long length of
1/4" plastic tube which uses push fits into the filter and into the back of
But at the water end it will need an adapter to take it from 1/4" push fit
to standard appliance screw valve.
The instructions are a great deal of help because they show pictures of the
various styles of filter kits are possible (we can identify ours) the
different adapters you can get. The different options are dependent on
whether you have push or screw fits.
Trouble is they don't spell out the contents - we haven't got an adapter -
we think we should have one but are not 100% sure.
Obviously I shall have to ring LG tomorrow but that aside anyone here know
whether they should be included or not and if not whether they are generic
parts you can get from a plumbing centre?
Was yours an LG too? If so where did you find the adapter.
Inside the fridge we found a sealed bag with the air filter kit - adapter
not in there.
And a sealed bag with the instruction manual - again the adapter wasn't in
I've managed to work out what the plumbing range is - it's John Guest stuff
so it's not a big deal to buy an adapter but I'd prefer not to.
Sent you an eMail, though I know what the adapter looks like and where it
should be fitted.
Just wondering where your adapter was packed - it may be that mine is still
in the fridge but I haven't spotted it yet. It is still in the packing in
the garage waiting for the fitters to reach the point where they need it.
I've unpacked enough to open the fridge door and got the only two things I
Sealed bag with filter kit - filter, tubing, two red clips for securing the
Sealed bag with the instruction manual
The two items that I think should be there but I can't see are
1 - Adapter to connect tube to cold water appliance valve
2 - Clips to allow the mounting of the filter to a wall
the filter cable ties to the back of the fridge on mine, and I am pretty
sure the adaptors where inside or the fitters brought it as it was
delivered and installed by Dixon's it was a few years back
