Thanks, is the water valve same as saddle valve ?
Answer Hi Don. No the saddle valve connects to your water supply (plumbing) feeding the water to your unit. The water valve (as discussed) is mounted on the back of your unit, behind a lower cover. It is mounted to the Rt. side of the back frame. The water line hose from the saddle valve (or wall valve) is connected to the water valve on the refrigerator. Hope this helps. Thank you.
