How do you get in to the door to replace the hose?
Answer Hello Rebecca,
The water fitting needed in the door for model number ED2KVEXVB01 is 8201537. To access it, remove the overflow grille and grasp the bottom of the front cover. Place your knee against the front of the door so it will not open and yank on the front cover. It will pop loose at the bottom and all you have to do is slide it up to un-hook it from the top. Now you can access the water line for replacement. The tube will dis-connect at the bottom and pull up through the door. You will then need to feed the new one down through the opening and it will probably hit the inside of the door hinge at the bottom. I use a large diameter milkshake straw that the water line will slip inside of to guide it down through the hinge. This is done by pulling and pushing the water line in and out while feeling with the straw and you can either guide it through the hinge or keep on until the water line drops into the straw. Either way, the water line will drop through the hinge and connect as the old one did.
Replaced tube from water valve to ice maker from Lowes (no choices) it did not have any inserts. Used the old one but it was a little loose. now not enough water is going into the ice maker, it only lets enough water in for 3 ice cubes then it freezes. would your kit let more water in? Thanks
Answer Shirley, the 4387492 is the correct part to order and install, it will have the properly sized tube and inserts needed for your model and serial number. As long as the present tube is not kinked or twisted, and it's 1/4 inch tubing it shouldn't create as large an issue as you described. We would recommend you recheck the water supply line to the refrigerator, and the saddle valve, to make sure it isn't kinked twisted or clogged, if all's ok suspect the fill valve 2315576 and replace it as well.
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.
