Can you tap into cold line to fridge for ice maker to install a cold water dispenser for wine bar on opposite wall?
Yes, you can use brass fittings or the plastic fittings that snap onto to the plastic line. I like the snap on fittings.

Answer . \nWater is an unusual liquid in that it expands as it freezes. This can cause it to break a glass container as the water content freezes.
Answer . It should have both. Verify that it has two lines to the faucet. If it does, check to see if the stop valve under the sink has been turned off. It may have been leaking and turned off instead of being repaired.
Get a glass full of ice cubes and a pour few cold water leave it in the fridge for at least 4 hours or more and enjoy the cold water
Here is how to disinfect a sunbeam hot/cold water dispenser: 1. Google "cleaning a sunbeam water dispenser" 2. Find this site 3. See no answer Hmmmmm. I wish I knew because that's how I found this site. Looks like we are in the same boat. Bummer. UPDATE: I just got off the phone with Sunbe…am on how to clean their water dispensers/coolers. I have a 3 way (hot, room temp, and cold) and needed to clean it. The woman from costumer service informed me that the company Elite Classics manufacture their water dispensers and she gave me the number directly to the factory (877-383-6399). I called the number and they were very helpful. To clean one of their water dispensers: 1. Unplug the water dispenser. 2. Completely drain the dispenser. 3. Pour in 4 cups of white vinegar. 4. Pour in 8 cups of hot tap water. 5. Leave mix in for 1 hour. 6. Drain 7. Pour in 12 cups of hot tap water or more and drain until the vinegar taste is not longer present. the instruction manual says you can use white vinegar or milk of magnesia. personally i like the milk of magnesia cause you can tell its all rinsed out as soon as the water is no longer cloudy. im not sure if all sunbeams are like this, but mine has a drain valve on the back. i make sure i run everything through all 3 nozzles and the drain valve to ensure everything inside is clean to the best of my knowledge. also i have used a mild bleach and water mixture and rinsed out with about 10 gallons of water. just have to make sure you run enough water through so no more chemicals are present. you can also get chlorine strips and test the water to make sure all the bleach is out. you can probably get a few strips free from a local restaurant that uses them. or maybe even a pool and spa supply store. they are not expensive. If it's filthy with dirt, such as one you've purchased used, then the following will be the steps to take before the vinegar/bleach treatment. 1. remove the dispenser seat that the bottle sits on. 2. remove the top of the cooler by taking out the two top screws, in the back, outer-most corners, and popping it off. 3. there is a large plastic ring that sits just under the dispenser ring. turn it counter-clockwise and pull it out. 4. beneath the plastic ring, there will be a flat disc, the same size as the fill cylinder. there is a rib, running across the middle. use this rib to unscrew the disc, and pull it out. 5. remove the next piece that is sitting in the bottom, to completely reveal the fill cylinder. remove the clear rubber gasket from the bottom. 6. clean all pieces, (I cleaned them and then sanitized them with boiling water) fill the cylinder with boiling water, and bleach or vinegar mixture. let sit for an hour. Drain, and rinse til completely clean. 7. reassemble the cooler in reverse order, and you're finished. (MORE)
Seems as if something got into your water supply. May be some kind of contamination. If it comes out clear but turns redish brown when left exposed to the air it is probably clear iron. That is iron that is fully disolved in the water but which oxidises when left exposed to air.. If it is coming o…ut of the tap brown then it could be a number of things. You probably want to get it analysed unless you can isolate the cause! (MORE)
We've had this problem before...you have to install a check valve (use a swing check and install it horizontally) in the recirc return line, so water cannot flow back through it and mix with the cold when you use the faucet.
It depends on where you are, what season it is, how deep your water pipes are, where they travel in your house, how long the water has been running and how far away they are from the main. There is no rule or normal temperature. Fill up a cup with tap water and put a thermometer in it.
some body turned off the cold water supply in the bathroom to change something and forgot to turn it back on
Is it plugged in? If it is, and you have a a warrenty go complain, if you don't have a warrenty(or it expired), you need a new fridge or someone who can repair it. 1. Check your machine is plugged in AND switched. if yes them; 2. open the fridge and check if the light comes on (if it has one) 3. …If the plus is the fused type (carries a fuse in the plug) check the fuse 4. Check to ensure the socket is working by plugging into the socket a lamg (table lamp) that you know is working 4. Once all these checks have been done and you know there is not issue with the socket, no issue with a fuse (if it has one) then you have a machine that has failed. It will either need replacing or repairing. In most cases when a machine like this goes down it may be cheaper to purchase a new one. (MORE)
Because you have the water inlets switched. It happens once in awhile after winterizing or replacing a machine.
I am not a plumber, but am in the process of installing a water line myself...and all of the research I have done says the water line should be hooked up to the cold water.
Running cold water is the quickest way to cool something, especially Baby Formula. Agitating the bottle under a running cold tap, will cool it to the required temperature quicker than anything else, including putting it in the freezer.
When water freezes, the H2O molecules line-up into a crystal becoming ice. This occurs at 32 degrees Fahrenheit, a temperature scale devised by Mr. Fahrenheit, a German scientist. Water becomes cold when we remove photon particles from the nucleus of the hydrogen & oxygen atoms that water is made of…. If we place ice cubes into a styrofoam cup at room temperature, the ice cubes begin to melt, but interestingly, the water in the cup remains at 32 degrees Fahrenheit until all of the ice has melted. In this case, your ice water temperature is 32 degrees F....Alfred Schrader Dec 2010 (MORE)
They don't have to, this is a very old fashioned way of installing a sink with running water. Here you can see more info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faucet
F, for frio (cold). Unfortunately, the hot water tap is marked C, for calor (hot),which could cause confusion. Fortunately, many taps use a color code as well : Red for hot waterand Blue for cold water.
depends on location (hotter climates may have warmer temps and vice versa for colder climates) but on average id say it varies between 9c and 17c
Washers failing, washer seat pitting or corroding causing washers to fail quickly, hard to turn - oring needs to be re greased.
That depends on how cold the fridge's thermostat is set. The only way to be sure is to measure the cold water with a thermometer.
Tap water temperature as "cold" is its normal temperature, depending on what your water source is. Underground water usually from wells/reservoirs is about 55 degrees, where as some parts of the country water comes from above ground lakes/reservoirs, and there the temperature will vary. Its warmer i…n the summer and can get really really cold in the winter as the above ground water temperature drops. (MORE)
The water would have to be colder than the ice to keep it cold. That is not possible unless it is brine(salt water). Then ice at 32f could be cooled by brine at say 30f.
Cold tap water is not itself misty. Rather, the cold temperature condenses water vapour in the air onto a conducting surface, such as a glass, a pipe, or a porcelain toilet tank.
If you use cold water, your drink will become diluted, Using ice allows the cooling of your drink with less dilution, as the ice takes a while to melt.
There are several possibilities. Here is a check list: A) Can you get hot water at any other faucet? If YES then the problem is local to the sink or its supply. If NO then the problem centers around the hot water heater. A.1 - Check the shut-off valve. The shut-off valve (also called a stop cock),… is usually located under the sink. It may be turned off. Turn it half way. Do you have hot water? If YES turn the valve the rest of the way and you are done. If NO the problem is either in the faucet or the lines leading to the sink. A.2 - Check to see if water is getting to the sink -- Turn OFF both the HOT and COLD valves under the sink. Check that you get no COLD water. Using a wrench (if this is a hex nut) or pliers (if this is a knurled nut) gently loosen the nut on the SINK side of the HOT valve. You will get some water dripping out as the hot water line empties. Open the HOT water valve slightly and then close it immediately. Does water run out? If YES then the problem is in the faucet. If NO the problem is in the pipes between the hot water heater and this sink. A.3 - Faucet is bad. -- Check to see if there is a screen on the end of the faucet that is totally plugged. Some faucets can be repaired or rebuilt. Without knowing a lot more about the specific make and model I can't guess. Plan on replacing the faucet or calling a plumber. B) Problem is in the pipes leading to the sink. Unless there is an additional shut-off valve this is usually a problem beyond the casual home owner. Most plumbing is laid out with a main line that has side branches to each location with water. Check all of the other sinks for hot water. If this is the only one with a problem then try to trace the feed to this sink back to the main line. Look for additional valves or damage to the pipes. If any work was done recently concentrate on the area where this construction occurred. You are likely to need a plumber. (MORE)
You need to make sure you pour it just right. If you do this it will stay cold over night.
It has a compressor (like a refrig or air conditioner) which compresses a gas (freon) creating hot gas, This gas heats the hot water tank as it condenses to a liquid, The liquid then goes to the evaporator, where it boils back to a gas again, taking heat energy out of the cold water tank and cooling… the water before returning to the compressor to start again. The hot water tank may have another heat source to boost the temperature higher. (MORE)
Because it pulls the heat from the soil. This is why you can now get heating systems that get heated by being lay-ed underground or in a bore hole. gaz
Its a mean on your washing machine it means the machine is empty of water while their are still clothes in it or whatever you put in your washer............
No. Unless its cracked from being dried out or anything like that. It should be fine. Just make sure you clean it well before hooking everything up. And don't eat the first set of ice cubes it makes.
A mixture of ice and water will always have a temperature of exactly 0Â°C (32Â°F). Whether it is ice melting or water freezing, the temperature stays at that temperature until all of the water is frozen or all of the ice is molten. As soon as it is only water or only ice it can start to become w…armer or colder respectively. The temperature of water with ice cubes will be 0 degrees Celsius under normal conditions. The ice cubes will cool the water down the its freezing point, at which time there will be an equilibrium between liquid water an ice. Of course, ice cubes chilled by extraordinary means (ie liquid nitrogen) may very well freeze the water solid. (MORE)
The hot water tap may be blocked by mineral deposits, thus forcing water through the cold water tap. Stratification of hot water molecules going into the cold water supply because the installer did not install a heat sink to prevent this kind of condition Heat goes to the absence of heat. In… another words the hotter water enters the cold water supply and this could be a very dangerous situation as the water in a tankless coil or storage tank is actually an incubator for all types of dangerous bacteria and parasites. A check valve is not a back flow preventor as somone may have also made a cross connection (MORE)
I haven't tried it, but theoretically it's not true. Ice is a crystalised, low temperature water. So the more temperature you give it, the faster it's mollecules gain enough kinetic energy to break it's bonds and liquify. Ofcourse, giving too much temperature (like dropping it into few hundred …degrees) would cause it to turn directly into gas, therefore forming a thin layer of gas that prevents direct contact between ice and hot water (MORE)
Yes ice will float in cold water or any water for the matter. For example icebergs are in fridge cold water (for the ocean can be extremely cold because of the salt and thus takes a colder temperature to freeze) and this still are afloat. Ice will actually float in warm or hot water for a bit u…ntil it is dissolved. So yes it can float in any sort of water despite the temperature. (MORE)
Ice is cold, right? So the term 'ice cold water' is just comparing the temperature of the water to the temperature of the ice.
Not all plumbing devices do; some have combined hot/cold taps. In either case, hot and cold water lines are separate, the hot water coming from a water heater. The simplest taps merely control each line, letting the user measure out how much of each they want.
If you stick a thermometer under the running water, you will see for yourself. Otherwise, you could use a temperature laser gun.
32F is the minimum, below that it is ice. If it is salt water then it could drop lower; I am guessing 28F.
It operates over a thermal cycle where a gas (like freon) is passed through a compressor and thus becomes hot.This gas then condeses to a liquid as it heats the water container.The condensed liquid again passes through an evapourator and becomes gas again & comes to the compressor to start the proce…ss again.

Dirty water can mean several things. If you are talking about turbidity(cloudy) water then here are the most common reasons. If only in the hot water, probably you hot water heater. These are big steel tanks that corrode and over time build up sediment. This transfers into your hot water lines from …the tank. (MORE)
This occurs when your hot water heater is either broken, disconnected, or has exhausted its supply of heated water. In cold weather, heated water may be cooling in the pipes on the way to the faucet, especially when it has just been turned on.
In order to turn water (a liquid) into ice (a solid) thetemperature would have to be 32 degrees Fahrenheit or 0 degreesCelsius
How would you fix a problem in water lines that when you turn on the cold tap hot water comes out first?
Get a plumber to trace your cold water lines to find out where the heat is getting into the line.
The ice melts because the temperature in the refrigerator is above freezing point. This is normal, a refrigerator usually has a temperature of around 4 degrees Celsius.
What ever the water suppy is comming into your house. -- If the main water comming into your house is 70 degrees then it should be the same after you run the water for a little bit inside your house. If you are not using water inside your house and it is 80 degrees inside. That is why you run the wa…ter to clear out your lines so it will be the same as main water. (MORE)
Installing a water line from for refrigerator to ice maker can be tricky. It depends on your model of fridge. Look up the model and serial number and the manufacturer should have a service manual available for you.
Take the dispenser water bottle and pour in 1/2 gallon of vinegar. Re attach the bottle to the dispenser and run all of the vinegar through the machine and into a bucket. Discard, and run a gallon of water through the system to clean out all the remaining vinegar. Next, Fill a spray bottle with …half water, half vinegar and a squirt of natural, non toxic dish soap. Spray this mixture on the dispenser anywhere there is build up of dirt/grime. Leave for 5-10 minutes and wipe clean. This method is non toxic and chemical free! (MORE)
Two of the main retailers for a hot and cold water dispenser are: aquaverve and blue fountain water company. These are just two of the main dispensers for them.
There are many Canadian retailers that sell hot and cold water dispensers. Examples of Canadian retailers that sell hot and cold water dispensers includes Nicolet Natural Water and Avanti.
To clean a Sunbeam hot and cold water dispenser you could use vinegar or milk of magnesia. Make sure it is unplugged before cleaning and completely drain the dispenser.

The energy content of still water isolated from external energy sources is generally thermal energy, and "cold" is in actuality the absence of heat. Thus the colder the water is, the less thermal energy it contains.
It's not instant. There is a tank inside the cooler, and there is a refrigeration system cooling the water down. If you run the water long enough it will warm up because you've used up the cool water.
