Heating, Air Conditioning, Fridge, HVAC/Refrigerator Water Line



We just got a new refrigerator delivered after our old fridge of 18 years died. The water line to the old fridge had been hooked up and working without any leaks for quite some time (perhaps all 18 years!). When we went to connect the line to the new fridge, after securing the nut, there was a leak - even after tightening it quite a bit, the leak remains. I'm wondering if the parts may just be old and aren't providing a good seal? Would it make sense to buy a new kit to replace the hookup to the fridge?

Any guidance is much appreciated!

the newer units have a john guess valves on them where you just push the tubing into the valve... but you did not supply model number of the new refrigerator so I cannot tell what type of valve it is.  so when you are saying you tightened the nut... there should not be a nut... please supply that model number so I can look into this for you
