In this regard, can I use American fridge without plumbing?
1 Answer. In general, plumbing water to a fridge is only required in order to use the ice maker and water dispensing features. You can use it as a fridge with just electricity connected. If you don't have water connected you should do that in order to reduce possible wear on electric valves and other parts.
Furthermore, will American fridge fit through door? When moving your American fridge freezer, it is very likely you will have to remove the doors to get it through door ways. This is a relatively straightforward task. Make sure it's unplugged at the wall and the contents and shelves are taken out.
In this regard, do all fridges with ice makers need plumbing?
Many fridges with built in ice makers and water taps require connection to your kitchen's water supply, though others have no plumbing at all. However, these plumbing-free fridges use a water tank to make their ice & water, which needs to be manually refilled.
Do American fridge freezers need a waste pipe?
No, is the short answer. Some of the more advanced features that may have swayed your decision to go for an American fridge freezer do, however, rely on being plumbed in to your water supply. So if you're looking forward to unlimited ice and chilled water on tap, plumbing in may be the way to go.
