Thank you for your question. I understand your concern about draining the water lines. The information you have received is good. The main thing will be to disconnect the main water supply and then activate (press) the water button (pad) to release any water pressure from the unit. As long as the water lines are connected, the water in the lines should not be able to leak out. However, if you would like to drain the lines, then disconnect the water tubes from the water valve and when all the water has drained out, reconnect the tubes to the valve. I'm attaching a picture with instructions of how the fittings on this valve work. I hope this will help you.

Q:

Kenmore refrigerator 106.76236402 - will it work in a garage that gets 120 - 130 degrees in the summer or will it blow up?

A:

Outside ambient temperatures do affect a refrigerator and freezer. The expert will review this model for the manufacturer's recommended temperatures for this situation. I did locate a similar question that may help for the cold temperatures. I hope this helps.

I know that it is important to have the right information for your refrigerator. The information that Barbara H provide is very helpful. If you are going to put any refrigerator in a garage (no matter how old it is) it will not work if the temperature gets below 55 degrees or above 110 degrees. The thermostats on them will not read properly and will cause them to shut down. There are garage kits available at Sears.com that you can purchase that will prevent this. I would suggest that you have a technician install it. This will go on to the compressor and if you don't know how it works, you can cause it to stop running permanently. If you would like to schedule service, just click on this link: Sears Home Services . You can purchase a garage kit from a technician as well. I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

The link that Barbara, above gave the valid reason refrigerator/freezers will not 'work' below about 55F. the compressor will not 'cycle often enough to keep the freezer section below 'freezing'. There is no reason you could not use it as a 'refrigerator' only but anything in the freezer section would, over time 'thaw', and spoil. Addtionally should the temperature fall below 32F for a significant period of time the food in the refrigerator section is liable to 'freeze', largely depending on its salt or sugar content.

Now onto operation at higher ambient temperatures. Your Whirlpool manufactured refrigerator uses a fan assisted air cooled condenser. This means that the air temperature over the condenser has to be cooler than the critical temperature of the refrigerant being used. I do do not know what refrigerant is used in your model but the critical temperature of Freon12 is 112C, way above anything you seem likely to have in your garage. The next question is how much thermal energy (heat)is going to have to be removed from your appliance. This will depend upon many factors. How often is the door opened, how effective is the insulation in your appliance,, the degree of fouling of the condenser, the restrictions of air flow about your appliance etc. It may transpire that your appliance can handle the conditions, and do not forget that running the appliance in the garage will 'push up' the temperature in that space as it operates. It may be that it will function satisfactorily as a refrigerator only but not as a refrigerator freezeer but only experimentation will confirm this.

One thing is certain, the longer the compressor runs the shorter will be its overall life, these things do have a finite life expectancy based on running hours, not the age of the appliance.

I have to confess my ignorance in failing to comprehend the above reference to thermostats failing to operate operate above or below the limits specified. This is news to me.

Good Luck

Hi, thanks for responding! I was sitting down to respond and looked downward on the frame from the top and saw a perfect U-Shaped slot to hold the bar on the front of the frame. Mystery solved--just needed a change in perspective. Now if I can just figure out how I got the cheese drawer turned around on its rail... Thanks again-- Fern
