no, it's the flaps on each side of the plastic tube that the water comes through
can you tell me what part on the diagram ? 70, 69, 73,71 ?
it's really difficult to tell from the image. At this time, wouldn't you say I need to call a repair man or get a new refrigerator?
well you dont need a new refrigerator unless you want want LOL, a repair man is probably a good thing to do because these can be a nightmare to take apart and put together, the parts are cheap. the service call would probably run around $79.00 which is a heck of a ,lot cheaper than a new refrigerator.
You are right. Thank you so much for your time and expert attention to my problem. Now that I know where the problem lies, I'll know what he's talking about.
