My refrigerator is out in the garage. I ran a water line to it and it froze. How do I replace the split water lines and more importantly, how do I drain the system in the fall to avoid freezing the line again?
Answer Hello Brian,
While this isn't really an appliance question I will try to make some sense of it for you. The water line, if it has to be drained each fall, will need to be flat and one end a bit lower than the other, otherwise, all of the water will not drain from it. Each end of the water line would need a tee installed so an additional valve can be installed. When the line needs to be drained, turn the water supply inside the house off and open the valves on each end of the water line. This will give an opening at the low end for the water to drain out and an air relief at the other end so the water can exit the line with no suction resistance. If the water lines on the unit also have to be drained, they can be disconnected from the bottom of the water valve. The ice maker line will drain as soon as you dis-connect it. The water dispense line will take a few minutes to drain since the water reservoir will have to drain.
My refrigerator has been setting along time with out being used. How do I clean the inside of tank to remove any mold if any???
Answer Hello Terry. There is no way of cleaning the inside of the tank. If it is dirty, you will need to replace the water tank R0181175 on the unit.
I have never been able to find a water filter on this unit. Our water tastes "old" out of the refrigerator door system. Would replacing this part help that problem, or is there a water filter somewhere else on the unit?
Answer Hello Colleen. There is no filter for this model number. You can replace the water tank R0181175 and help with the water taste in the unit. Also, you can install an inline filter 5305510266 behind the unit, but only after the tank has been replaced.
I need to order part AP4247865, water tank kit. I was wondering how to install this part myself. Please advise.
Answer Hi Steve. Included with your tank kit are detailed instructions. By removing the lower shelves and all the crisper drawers to gain proper access. Then the top of the tank is bolted to the cabinet by 1/4" screws. The water lines are pushed through the cabinet housing. There might be a little bit of white silicone food grade initially holding the tubes on the inside of the cabinet. You will need to use a tubing cutter or a utility knife to get a fresh square - cut on the new tubes. This will prevent any leaks in the future.The water tank is part # R0181175. Thank you.
