I'm replacing water tank assembly. On maytag
1. How to remove back panel and old tank assembly.
Specifics more importantly there is a bottom back panel on right side and an upper unless it's all connected to head assembly somehow.
Then any info and tips for replacement.
To remove the water tank, turn off water to the unit. Disconnect the water line that supplies water tank from water supply. Remove the crispers and shelves from the right side of the fresh food compartment. Remove covers on back wall by inserting a screwdriver in to slots to release tabs. Disconnect water line from the outlet of tank to the inlet of water valve by holding tubing collar stationary and pulling water tube out of valve. Remove the water tank and tubing. Reverse procedure to reassemble.
I have a unit that is leaking water inside on the right hand side under the filter and it's freezing it leaks no matter what I can't see any leaks in hoses or lines anywhere. Any suggestions would be much appreciated
Answer Hello Kevin,
This is an air circulation problem. It can be caused by several issues but the most common can be corrected by adjusting the temperatures. When the unit is in the cooling mode, the fan in the freezer is running and this mixes and stirs the air which equalizes the temperature throughout the compartment. If the fresh food section is set too warm, the unit sits idle too long and the cold air in the top section will settle to the bottom of the compartment. This freezes the water tank 12956202. The tank will rupture and leak. Replacing the water tank will only correct the problem caused by lack of air circulation. For this reason, it is advised to turn the temperature in the freezer warmer and the fresh food section colder. I know this sounds backwards but in doing this you are calling for the fan to run longer which keeps the colder, heavier air from settling to the bottom of the fresh food compartment and causing the issue to reccur.
