Question and Answers

Q:

water leak when use watre dispenser. 79575193401 Kenmore Elite Refrigerator

A:

The fix is simple.Cut out the section of damaged tubing and take it with you to the home center or hardware store. Buy a new section of vinyl tubing and one or two quick-connect couplings. If you don’t have a quick-connect coupling on one end of the damaged tub, then cut the tubing in two spots and join it with two new quick-connect couplings.

The tubing for icemakers can also get damaged and leak. So if you ever notice water on the floor under your refrigerator, check for a leaking tube and repair it.

Yes. You will need to order the part that is listed as 615B even though the drawing shows it as 615A. The part number for that tank is 4839JJ2005B. You can order that part from the Sears PartsDirect website. Here is a direct link for that part: Water Tank Assembly .

Unplug the refrigerator and shut off the water supply before accessing that part and replacing it. The image below show how to remove the cover and access that water tank.

Question??? How do you remove/replace the connection to the upper part of the tank-- the one that has the red rubber covering the nipple? This is the nipple that connects to the water valve assemble, On this Kenmore double door refrig, the water valve assembly is a robin egg blue unit.

A:

You should see a collar on that water valve as shown in the image below. Your current tank may look different than that one shown in that image but the valve should be the same. Push in on that collar and then you should be able to pull the water line tube or tank out of that water valve. That is a John Guest type of water line fitting. To install the new tank, push that water line or tank tube into that valve until it bottoms out and then give it a slight tug back to make sure that it seated properly. Check for leaks. Be sure that you have the refrigerator UNPLUGGED when accessing internal components. If you need more help, reply with additional details (and a digital picture of possible).

Lyle, Referring to your picture in the march 8 2012 post, my system is leaking at the joint between the blue valve and the tank. Do you think I need a new tank or new valve?

Hello Maines. It seems that you are indicating that you have a leak at the location indicated on the image below. You can pull the tank out of that fitting and check it for damage. If you see no damage to the component on the tank that is inserted into that fitting then the valve will need to be replaced. That valve is your likely failure. The valve and the tank are relatively inexpensive parts. Be sure that you unplug the refrigerator before accessing and replacing internal components. If you need more help, let us know.

Thanks for the info. It's definitely leaking at the location you circled and is likely from the valve. My valve looks like the one in your pic. Part num 5220je2001a. The replacement valve part listed on the parts website is 5221JB1004N and appears to have two connectors where as mine has one. Also is it a big job to switch the valve? Looks like most of the lines disappear into the door.

Hello Maines. I tried to research that part 5220JE2001A but it was not a valid part number in our parts system. I looked at the part 5221JB1004N. That appears to be the main inlet water valve that is located on the back bottom portion of the refrigerator in the machine compartment (unplug the refrigerator and remove the back rear service panel to view that area if necessary to see that part). That does not appear to be the part that you need to replace the valve in that above image. There have been some revisions in the parts for that water tank and dispenser on some models. I recommend that you reply with the full model number and serial number of your refrigerator. We will research that part using that information. Replacing that valve is normally not too complicated. The water line and tank can be removed by pushing in on the collar of that fitting. Then the wires can be removed (with the refrigerator unplugged). You can then remove the valve and replace it with the new one. Connect the wires. Install the tank and water line and then check for leaks. You will probably be able to fix that problem yourself. If not, you can have a service technician complete the repair. Here is a link for the Sears Service website in case you need it: Sears Home Services .
