I am replacing the tubing for the icemaker water supply and need to know how to take the existing tubing out?
When you are replacing the water line for the icemaker you will first turn off water. Once water is off, remove the lower cover of the back of refrigerator. Take water valve loose. The Water line is connected to a john guess compression fitting. When removing you will push in on the ring around the water line and pull out on hose. If there is the same type of fitting at the top then you would release the same way. If there is not, then you would have to cut the line below where it enters the back of refrigerator and use a coupling to connect the 2 lines together.
where is my water filter located
Answer Luke, Your refrigerator does not have an "internal filter" system. If you do have a filter it would be an "in line " filter GXRTDR and may be located behind the refrigerator on the floor or wall.
I Need to replace plastic line that goes from the water inlet valve up the back of refrigerator to the water filter. Will the old line pull out or is there a tool that I need to disconnect it from the valve & filter? Thanks!
Answer Hello Steve,
The filter housing has to be removed from the top inside of the fresh food compartment to remove and replace the water line. The fittings are called john guess fittings. To remove the water line, push it in harder and while applying the pressure, hold the ring around the line towards the valve and the line will release from the fitting. To reinstall, push the line in the fitting and the line will stop. At this point you need to push harder and it will "pop" in about another 1/4 inch. To seal the fitting, pull on the line.

How I change the micro switch? (Part # AP3131893).
Answer Hi Tommy. Remove the power under the top freezer door hinge. Disconnect the electrical connectors this disables the fountain control power.Then put painters tape around the door at the fountain control so you do not scratch the door. Remove the spill catcher lower plate. Gently pry the front cover off the face and un hook the elect. connector. Next remove the screws around the inner cover and remove the assy. The switch is on the backside. Switch part # 2162361. It will be inset with a plastic holder on one side. Lift this up and the switch will slide off the holder area. You may consider using the chute kit part # 8201649 also so it will seal up against the chute area and also the actuator arm motor is fresh. Thank You.
The water filter is not clogged and the reservoir is not frozen. The actuator switch do not click when I press the water dispenser paddle,

Answer Hello Tommy. If the micro-switch 2162361 is not making up properly in the dispenser, when the paddle is pushed, you will need to replace the micro-switch. Hope this helps.
My Kenmore refrigerator do not receive water in the door dispenser What's will be the problem?
Answer Tommy, First check and make sure the water filter is not clogged, and the reservoir, behing the crisper drawers, is not frozen. Can you hear the actuator switch "click" when you press the water dispenser paddle ? if so the issue is most likely the fill valve W10408179. Good Luck and Thanks
