My water hose came loose from the water reservoir inside the door. How do I get to the reservoir. After removing the cover/ face of the dispenser and removing the board to the switches, I removed the four screws of the plate that secure it to the door. Do I need to remove all the internal parts to access the water reservoir? The plate does not seem to come off and still seems to have something securing it to the door.
Answer Jerry, Apparently you will need to fill tube fitting 8201537, this is the only water carrying component in the door, your reservoir W10276792 is located in the refrigerator compartment, on the back wall above the crisper drawers. Yes, you will need to remove all the assemblies in the dispenser. disconnect the tube connector behind the kickplate. tape a strong string or wire to the original tube and extract the assembly through the dispenser housing. Attach the string to the new tube fitting and use the string to "snake the new tube back through the door assembly and connect it as before.
Note: This question is for the older version of this part, but we thought you might still find it helpful
Can you provide the instructions for removing the tube type reservoir and replacing it with this AP3886014? Do I need more connectors, can I simply splice into the connectors and just add this one in? How do I secure it to the back of the fridge? Do I just attach it to the same spot where the tube currently is?
Answer Hi John. There are no instructions with this reservoir. The tubes need to be cut closest to the old tank in case you need them. The part will bolt to the back wall with 1/4" x 1/2" screws. Do not use too long of screws. Just make sure you pre-drill and do not go out the back of the unit. The tubes should slip in and out of the cabinet and you will need to use the coupling supplied with the waterline where the freezer door 5/16" line passes up into the lower hinge. Behind the lower kick plate. The 1/4" tube will reach all the way to the water valve and screw into the connector there. Reservoir part # W10276792. Thank You.
