ice maker hookup


Hi, I am trying to hook up my refrigerator icemaker to the water supply line. It is a copper line that is coming out of the wall, it has some kind of fitting on the end that I am not familiar with.

Can anyone tell me how I should attached the supply line to the icemaker with this configuration?

Thanks!

Harlan

That is a mess.
No idea why they would have ran that big a line for just an ice maker.
It could have been done with one flared pipe cap.
Going to have to find the shut off (most likely under the sink)
Set a pan under it and remove those fittings and install a 1/4 turn shut off valve.
It would look a whole lot better with a real ice maker box.

What Joe said- plus you have a kink where the pipe comes out of the wall.
Using a small tubing cutter- you need to cut behind the kink and add the 1/4" stop valve
