Ice maker works. When I push for water it leaks out the tube or tank. How do I get to the other end of these hoses? are the in the back? thanks
Answer Walt, the first palce to start is at the freezer bottom door hinge. Remove the kick plate grille on the bottom front of the refrigerator. You'll see the water tube entering the bottom of the hinge and can trace it back to the fill valve and water tank connection. If necessary, a loose or damaged connector in this area is a pretty common leak on this style unit. Thanks and Good Luck

This refrigerator is a built in, how do I replace this water tank? Thanks in advance!
To Replace the Chilled Water Tank
Note: Some water may leak from the water supply
line and valve when they are disconnected.
1. Shut off the water supply to the unit.
2. Remove 2 screws and the chilled water tank
cover inside the fresh food compartment.
3. Remove 2 screws from the chilled water tank.
4. Cut the water lines leaving enough line to
reconnect. Use union WR02X10471
(5/16 x 5/16).
I have a leak in the water tank assembly part # 17X10734. when I received the part I noticed it had tubes attached. what is the procedure to replace the tubeing that is attached to this water tank? or Should I just cut tubeing and connect with a 1/4 inch john guess connector?
The tubing goes down through the floor of the refrigerator compartment and one attaches to the water valve and the other to the connector under the freezer door. You would want to route them to where they go and not use john guess connectors except for the one under the door.
After talking to Curtis on your 800 number (nice guy), I have determined that this item (Item Number: AP3188462) connects into the water inlet valve and feeds somehow to the water that comes out of the door.
This cable disintegrated near the water inlet value, but it is in good condition a few inches back. What I think would be the easiest to install for me (little skill) is to find a way to connect the 1/4 inch cord to the part of the cord I can see and can easily get to. Is there a way to do this with parts you sell or parts I can get from like Home Depot?
Another question, is this part easy to install if I replaced the whole part?
Could someone with minor plumbing skills do this do you think?
Answer Dean, The best repair , is to replace the water tank/tube assembly WR17X10734, the hardest part of the replacement, is getting to the water tank on the back wall of the fridge compartment, you need to remove everything in the lower half of the compartment. and have a small amount of "food grade" silicone sealant, to reseal the tubing opening in the liner. It would be doable, for someone with basic skills. You could attempt to repair the water line with a "John Guess" coupling 2198677 and 1/4 inch tubing kit 4387492 that you'd cut to length, either way would work. Good Luck and Thanks
How do you take the cover off the water tank so I can get to it? The tank appears to be frozen. How do I fix this problem? Thanks.
Answer Hello Boyz. The water tank WR17X10734 is located in the bottom of the refrigerator section behind the drawers. 1. Remove 1st and 2nd bin from bottom of
fresh food section.
2. Lift up and out to remove the CustomCoolTM
front chill cover.
3. Remove two screws in front of CustomCoolTM
lower cover, two screws on
either side of the pan, and one screw in the
back of the housing. 4. Remove two screws holding chill water
reservoir assembly to back of refrigerator, and
plastic deflector cover. Now you can use a hair dryer to that out the water tank assembly. Hope this helps.
Been getting white particles in the drinking water and from the ice maker. Replaced the filter but still there. Read it could be the water tank...but does the water tank feed the ice maker as well? Or am I barking up the wrong tree. Thnx
Answer Bruiserman, Repalcing the filter and the tank will resolve the issue for a while, but it will return due to the water quality of your supply. The white specks are deposits that have separated from the water and accumulated in the tank and system tubing etc. They will return eventually. You may want to remove the filter and by pass the it. Thanks and Good Luck
