Hello My name is Ian ~ I am not on the site constantly so please be patient whilst waiting for responses to you queries ~ I assume we are looking at the appliance from the rear forwards ~ if so it is the water supply to the ice maker.

Ok

I must have a part missing as I have a piece of plastic pipe that reaches up to the point but no connecting piece to go back into the machine. It must have come off when the machine was loaded into the van.

Can i get ine from some where and re-connect?

Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 2 years ago.

Did you load it in on its back by chance?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

yes

to avoid any damage as the sides and front only have to be looked at to dent!!!

OK likely you have broken it off where it feeds inside, the pipe is readily available from the likes of Howdens or other kitchen fitting companies or hardware shops, its usually 6mm in diameter but you will need push on connectors to join the damaged section. - give me a call if you get stuck.
