The water line from the reservoir to the dispenser goes through two rubber fittings. The line goes through a fitting at the floor of the fridge and then through another fitting at the bottom by the coils. Between the two fittings the line is not exposed. When I pull on the line it doesn't budge even when yanked with plyers and even if it did come out there is not way to thread another line through because the rubber fittings are offset. Is there anyway to expose the line between the two fittings to run a new line?
I have disconnected the water line behind the lower vent panel and I have cut it near the water reservoir. However, it will not budge when pulled and actually broke off about 2-inches above the fitting where the water line goes through the bottom of the fridge. There must be some way to access the line because if I could get the old line out it would be impossible to thread a new line through since it would have to go through two 90 degree fittings that are offset by about 18 inches. There is no sense in purchasing a new reservoir if there is no way to reconnect the lines.
I bought some tubing from the hardware store, rerouted it through the back of the fridge like you suggested and it is working ok. The water is not as cold as I would like but at least it works. Thanks for the information
