You know those keyless remote entry fobs that come with cars nowadays. The ones that you thought were a silly idea until you actually started using one and now your opinion is "how did we ever do without them". Well, automatic ice and water in the refrigerator door has become the same way.
This is the water supply connection that comes with the standard kit. It's made for homeowners who want to connect up fast and easy without calling a plumber. They work by puncturing a little hole in the water pipe with a sharp needle and are made water tight with a rubber gasket. However since installation the water flow has always seemed very slow when waiting to fill up your glass, so I went down the other day and ran the needle in (and out) again attempting to make the hole larger and guess what, that's right, no water flow at all. Apparently the rubber gasket has now been squished to the point of cutting off the flow no matter what, even with completely dismantling and reinstalling it.
Here's my solution. Luckily I already owned the blow torch plumbing kit from a previous project and this roughly only cost the price of a new valve.
