My question is - can you run a brand new refrigerator that has a built in ice maker/water dispenser without hooking it up to a water line.

Need a new fridge ASAP but I’d like to be able to hook it up to the supply line at a later time. I can’t afford a plumber right now as the line would have to come up through the floor from the basement. The refrigerator location is nowhere near the kitchen sink or any other water supply as it is right now. Lots of labor lost there…

Thanks!

Sure you can, just make sure the ice maker is set to OFF at all times.
