The valve at the end of the supply line for my ice maker started leaking from that top. In trying to remove the valve, I twisted the copper supply line. The section of pipe is 6 inches, and the twist is right above a 90 degree elbow. I have a replacement valve, but I'm wondering if it would be okay to cut the elbow off and run a piece of flexible PVC from the copper line to the new valve using a compression fitting to join them. Are there any issues with this I'm not seeing?
You can use the Sharkbite or Gatorbite connectors as a junction for copper and PVC. Sharkbite and Gatorbite connectors are "snap together" connectors available at Lowes or HomeDepot, you can put copper in one side and PVC in another.
