With the right tools and instructions, it is possible for an ice maker to be successfully installed by an amateur. Certain online retail websites that deal with home appliances and parts, such as The Home Depot, also sell ice maker kits for various refrigerator brands, such as Whirlpool and Frigidaire.
The ice maker installation process requires approximately 15 minutes as well as certain tools. The first step to creating an ice maker is to make sure that a water line is connected to the refrigerator. Then a solenoid valve needs to be installed to connect the water line to the ice maker.
