Proper care of the refrigerator begins before one buy it. One must be sure the place he or she is putting it is suitable for a modern refrigerator. Even newer houses can have less-than-ideal places for the refrigerator. Some questions one must ask are- Will it fit? Can I get it from outside the house to the place I want to put it? What are the electrical requirements?” and “Will the icemaker water tubing hook up? Walls, floors, doors, cabinets, refrigerators and even people have been damaged trying to fit a refrigerator into its place. It can be a real challenge installing a large refrigerator. Often doors, handles and water tubing must be removed. One must be sure that all parts are put back on correctly. Make sure that doors open and close properly, handles are on tight and there are no water leaks. So where the refrigerator repairs Ann Arbor is done?
Sometimes after doing everything possible a refrigerator must be returned and a smaller one purchased. One common reason for a “no fit” is the fact that the sides are not usually perfectly straight. They usually bow out slightly (about 1/8 inch) on each side at the center of the panel. This makes a nominal 30” wide refrigerator become 30 1/4” wide. If a carpenter has made the opening 30” wide either the cabinet or the counter top or the refrigerator water system) at worst it is disastrous (if refrigerator should leak water to entire house must be shut off until problem is fixed). It also makes it impossible to easily check it for being plugged. Many newer houses are being built with the valve behind the refrigerator. This works real well as long as refrigerator can be pulled out easily and far enough to get to valve. If it is put in too tightly then it is no longer convenient. Sometimes the prefabricated nook that holds the valve is not situated to prevent kinking of water tube. Look it over before installing refrigerator if there is any doubt is sure to double-check line for kinking. I have included a diagram to help visualize this. A leak behind the refrigerator can go unnoticed long enough for massive water damage to occur.
The connecting tube material can cause arguments; some manufacturers specify copper, others do not; some plumbers prefer plastic, others prefer copper. Stainless steel braided lines are becoming more common. Be sure to follow manufacturer’s advice if there is a preference. Also be sure to know if building code specifies one material over another. From my viewpoint as long as the tube can’t be smashed, kinked, or caused to leak it will probably work well enough. Hire the best refrigerator repair Ann Arbor technician if something goes wrong.
