How do I replace the water inlet tube part 8201597?
Answer Hello Bob. Access the valve and press in on the plastic compression fitting to release the line from the valve. Press the new line into the water valve and you will feel it lock into place. Check for leaks after you hook the new line to the house hold supply line.
I need to replace the tubing which dispenses water the plastic piece at the end is gone.
The water line in the door is not a replaceable part and would require the door to be replaced.
Couldn't get the water tube out of the filter so I pryed it off with a screw driver and broke it into several pieces. What should I do now?
Answer Hello Kevin,
Since the filter housing is broken then you will need to replace the housing. The way to get the hose off is by depressing the ring around the tubing and pulling on the tubing. The tubing will come out as this is a compression fitting.
Recently moved & the movers took the freezer door off the side-by-side refrigerator. In doing so, they apparently kinked or broke the vinyl water line that enters the bottom of the door to supply water to the cool drink dispenser in the front of the door. I can't see any splits of breaks in the tubing that's visible so the damage must be just inside the bottom of the door. Or, worse yet, the line may be disconnected somewhere inside the door. When you press the lever for a glass of water, all of the water leaks out of the bottom of the door where the line enters. Can the freezer door be disassembled & the line replaced?
Answer Hello Bob,
The tubing 4387492 runs as a solid piece inside the door. The good part is the tubing can be replaced. It is run through a channel in the door. What you would need to do is remove the front panel from dispenser. You may also need to take door off unit to make it easier to run. Once you have dispenser panel off, removal is to take flat blade screwdriver at the bottom where the 2 slots are and pop it loose, then you pull the dispenser bracket loose. Once bracket is loose you remove the screw holding the lever and the water tube bracket in place and remove lever and bracket. With this done you can pull tubing out of door and push tubing back into door. It is better to push in from the bottom. Reinstall all parts in reverse.
