How do you remove and install the elbow fill tube?
This is a simple task. Remove the clamp from the old fill tube from the rear of the refrigerator and let it slide down the water line. Pull the water line from the fill tube. Pull the fill tube out from the back of the unit. If it is frozen you may need to heat it for 10 to 15 minutes from the inside with a hair dryer since it will not come out with an ice build-up inside it. Make sure the new fill tube is the same length as the old one. If it is longer, cut it to the same length with a razor knife, being careful not to cut yourself. Push the new one in from the rear and you may have to go into the freezer compartment to help the end of the fill tube into the ice maker fill cup. Once you have the new fill tube in position, insert the water line and slide the clamp back up and position it as it was on the old fill tube.
