Question DetailsAsked on 7/13/2017

What is the cost to replace the water shut off valve that supplies the water to the refrigerator?

I got a new refrigerator to replace my old refrigerator. The guy who came to install the refrigerator told me that I had to replace the water shut off valve that supplies the water to the refrigerator since it is old. So I am looking for a handy man who replaces the water shut off valve that supplies the water to the refrigerator and cost for the job (part + labor).

I presume old one needs replacing because it will not shut off ? Just being old does not make it in need of replacement, because they are usually brass ball valves that will last many decades.


Valve about $5-10, replacement labor minimum service charge (typically $50-100 handyman, or $75-200 plumber) unless inaccessible behind cabinets - though in that case he should be able to just put a new one where it taps off the pipes - usually under the sink.


If you can get to it, look at the type - may be a flared or slip-on tubing type with threaded connections which you can replace easily yourself after turning the water off to those pipes (or maybe to entire house).
