Plastic tubing split, caused water leak

Note: That this repair was done on the old design with the threaded connections on the inlet water valve. The replacement valve has compression fittings. 5/16 water line gave up at the water inlet valve. First fixed 2yrs ago. was able to cut off enough damaged line and pull out the slack and got it back in and socked it down no leaks. 2nd leak this time same brittle old line gave up again. Replaced the 5/16 line. from inlet valve. I cut the head off a bolt that barely fit in both old and new tube ends. Removed tube guide inside behind bottom bin and pulled old line until new line showed up spliced in union. Did have to remove inlet water valve this time to assure good connection. Because you can't buy a new 5/16 nut for that valve you have to make the old one work or you might be forced to buy a new inlet valve too. At which point the 1/4 ice line gave up. Repeated fix #1 on 1/4 line. reinstalled no leaks. Should have just done them both at same time. Did just order 1/4 line, 1/4 nut and fill tube grommet.

Replaced connector

This is a no brainer. All you have to do is lie on the floor, open the freezer door and pull off the plastic cowling that is in front of the two water lines at floor level that this connector connects. Follow the direction to snap off the old connector and snap in the new. No tools needed. This connects the water supply line from the house to the water line that runs up the freezer door to the water dispenser. Sometimes that door water line freezes up so no water comes out of the dispenser. You can use a heat gun to heat up the freezer door to clear the line, or just open the door and let it defrost.
