How do you change the tube w/waterline, fill hose for this model? Thanks
Answer Vince, To replace the ice maker fill tube, you'll need to work from both compartments and the top of the refrigerator. Move the refrigerator out if needed, and turn off the water supply to the refrigerator. Remove the shelves on the right side of the refrigerator compartment, this will give you access to the panel covering the fill valves and water tank. Remove cover on back bulkhead by inserting screwdriver in slots to release tabs. Disconnect the upper water tube from the fill valve(press in on the collar that surrounds the tube on the valve and pull out on the tube. Remove the ice bin from the ice box compartment, in the left rear area of the top panel you'll see the cover plate remove the screw and lift the plate off the refrigerator. Using a pair of pliers grasp the top of the fill tube grommet and extract the assembly by pulling up and applying a side to side motion. once the grommet and fill tube is out, insert the fill tube into the channel opening and "feed" it back to the water valve, once the grommet is in position, insert it through the opening in the ceiling and press down until the grommet is seated. reach inside the ice box, above the ice maker and tug down on the fill tube grommet, to make sure it has seated and sealed properly. Reverse the procedure, reinstall the panels and shelves, turn the water supply back on.
Trying to replace tube w/water line in ice maker
Answer Kenneth to replace the water tube that goes from the water valve to the icemaker you will need to first remove the shelving in the refrigerator compartment. Once removed there is a cover on the right side back wall that you will need to remove to access the water valve. Once you access the water valve and disconnect the tubing that goes to the fill tube, go to the top of the refrigerator and there should be an access toward the back of the refrigerator. Take the cover off and pull out the fill tube from the cabinet. Once pulled out you will be able to pull the water line out. You would then push the water line back through the channel and push the fill tube back into place. Reassemble the unit.
