Trying to replace ice maker tube. How does the panel on back wall come off? Can't seem to get it off. Thank you.
Answer Hello Dan. Do not remove the panel. Just twist the fill tube from the outside and pull it out of the cabinet to remove it. Install the new part 67006317 in reverse order.
how do you remove back wall panel to replace ice filler tube?
Answer Rich, The only panel you will need to remove is in the refrigerator rear wall " Turn water off to unit, remove power to the unit . Remove crispers and shelves from right side of fresh food compartment. Remove covers on back bulkhead by inserting screwdriver in slots to release tabs. Disconnect water line from of tank to inlet of water valve by holding valve stationary,and pressing in on the tubing collar and pulling water tube out of valve". Once the tube is released from the fill valve, you' have to access the top of the refrigerator and loosen/remove the fill tube cover W10191141 and extract the fill tube assembly from the roof of refrigerator. There is a channel molded into the insulation that the fill tube will be inserted into, but you may want to attach a string or wire to the original fill tube when you extract it. it will be helpful, when you install the new tube, if you reattach the string, and use it to pull the tube through the channel.
I need the fitting from the water line that connects to the house waterline.
Answer Hello Robert. Based on the information you provided, you will need to order 12956202 for the water connection line. It is made into the filter head. If you remove the red cap in the picture, the connections is under the cap. Hope this helps.
How do you install this part?
Answer Hello Shawn. The old fill tube pulls out of the top of the refrigerator, after you remove the cover. Then when you install the new fill tube, you will need to make sure the tube is seated properly in the frame. Reinstall the cover. Hope this helps.
