Abstract (en)

The present invention provides a refrigeration appliance (100), comprising: a heat insulation cabinet (10) comprising a top wall (11) and side walls (12), wherein the top wall (11) and the side walls (12) each are provided with a heat insulation layer in an interior thereof; a storage chamber (20) formed within said heat insulation cabinet (10); an ice maker (30) disposed in said storage chamber (20); a water nozzle (40) comprising a water supply pipe (41) for supplying said ice maker (30) with water; wherein said water supply pipe (41) is detachably fitted on the heat insulation cabinet (10) and has a pipe body portion disposed over said ice maker (30) and extending in a vertical direction. Such a arrangement can avoid water remain inside the water supply pipe, thereby eliminate a need of additionally providing a heater to heat water remaining inside the water supply pipe to avoid blockage and in turn reduce design and manufacture cost and energy consumption of the refrigeration appliance.
