Ordered a new fridge and they tried to deliver and install, but saying I need a new water line. Never had any issues with the current line and it is a copper water line. Icukd understand if it was plastic or old but good shape and hasn’t been touched since it was installed. Any reason I can’t use the same line and attach to the new fridge? I may just have them deliver and I’ll hook it up to the line if they won’t.

Most likely it is due to liability reasons. It’s very rare to use old cords on appliances and supply lines on washers, etc.

Have them deliver it and set it in place and then you can screw the line on when they leave.

Yeah, that is what I am going to do. Seems like pretty easy to connect to an existing line.

I am going to turn off the water, disconnect and leave it for them them to move and add the new one. I have never done that, but seems straight forward to disconnect and drain any residual water in the line.

Yes this is a simple process. Usually you’ll have a single valve that that water line connects to so it only affects that line or a portion of your Overall water. If you’re shutting off at your water main then you are going too far

Also, depending on how long it has been since you have shut that water line off, it may leak some because the washers dry and shrink a little. I don’t know that I have ever had one that didn’t leak a little.
