How to replace water tube (part number 2256096) to icemaker for Kitchenaid side by side refrigerator?
Answer Hello RAJ.
If you present valve is similar, you have "john guess" fittings. They work like any other "compression" fitting. You will need to press in on the "... morecollar".(the ring surrounding the tube) and pull out on the tube, to disconnect the tube from the valve outlet. Reverse the procedure to install the tube in the valve outlet. As for removing the fill tube, once you have all the fittings and holders loose and away from the tube. you will need to extract it from the freezer compartment ceiling. You may want to tie or tape a stong piece of string to it, so you can "snake" the new tube through the cabinet.
the water dispenser has a constant drip. If I use the LOCK feature, it still drips. I can dispense water, right after that, it stops dripping for about 3 seconds then it starts dripping again. How do I go about repairing this?
Answer Jess, Check and replace or remove the filter 4396508,if you haven't yet, and check to make sure you have plenty of water pressure(32 PSI) to the fill valve at the back of the refrigerator. Disconnect the water tube at the bottom of the freezer door hinge, and activate the paddle and flush all the air and debris from the system(1/2 to 1 gallon of water) reattach and dispense three or four glasses of water at the dispenser. This should solve the issue. Air in the water system or low water pressure to the refrigerator can cause the dispenser to drip.
