    I had new flooring put in yesterday, and we found a leak behind the refrigerator. It's coming from the ice maker hose/connector. The problem is that I can't find this type of connector anywhere. Any advice would be great!

    never seen that kind of valve before I would change that just
    because its plastic???? is the leaky from the hose were the stainless
    Steel collar is pressed on????

    could you change the hose and change the valve
    I'm not a fan if plastic valves or hoses use a stainless
    Steel braided hose and a brass valve if you can
    have you taken it apart and put a little pipe sealant on the threads
    and union connections??

    ThatÂ’s a factory joint and you have to have a plumber tear the entire recessed box out And replace it with something better
