Great answer, thank you. XXXXX alter the slit in the nipple so that is probably my issue. I will unplug the unit and remove the nipple from the drain hose. I do not see the nipple in the image you linked. Do you have a link for the nipple? I will have to try to pick one up locally because I made the time to do this tomorrow but will order it if I can't find one. How long should I leave the fridge unplugged after I replace the nipple on the drain hose?
