Thank you Priscilla. For the expert: I forgot to mention I tried installing/reinstalling the tank into the valve several times, including putting plumbers tape around the piece that goes into the valve, just to see if i could stop up the leak. That did not make a bit of difference.

Thanks for contacting ManageMyLife.com. I understand how frustrating it is having trouble with your refrigerator leaking water at the valve. We are here to help. If you had to replace the freezer door, then you are required to use the new water tank. The current freezer door will take either tank. The updated water tubing will solve the water leak problem. Since you already purchased a new water tank, there is another option available. You can add a small portable fitting. You insert the tubing that is too short properly into the John Guess fitting. Next, you add a piece tubing that is long enough to go into the fitting and long enough to fit into the valve properly. That will solve the water leak problem, provided you have enough room for the extra fitting. I provide you a image of the John Guess fitting below, with the instructions. The part number for the fitting is MCD61866804. I hope this helps.

Thanks John. I sort of did what you said earlier this week. I purchased some water line grade tubing from home depot and removed the entire tank for now to stop the leak. See attached for how that looks. Not my prettiest work but it is not leaking! I was contemplating using the entire roll of tubing to mock the water tube system. I was under the impression the valve is what controlled the water flow when pressing the button on the front door to get water. If I remove this in lieu of the new tank tube system, will things will work as expected even without a valve in place? I would rather go with the new tube system if possible instead of making the tank system work because I have read the plastic tank is flawed in this model and I�m likely to end up replacing it again. Thanks for the assistance.

Adam, There is only one problem with what you did. The water tank is now the little short tube. I recommend changing that clear tube and get 3' of the clear tubing. The water tank would be the same as original then. The reason it would work without the one valve is, because of the valve in the back. Both valves opened when you get a glass of water. Now it would be on a one valve system like Whirlpool and Frigidaire refrigerators.

John, Can I keep the water tank and then just remove the valve and just have the clear tube? If yes, what size tubing do I need and how many inch/ft of it should I get? Would you show how I can do it the right way. Thank you,

Kamyar, I do not recommend reinstalling the tank. The manufacture upgraded its tanks to the tubing because of problems. You can keep the system you have in the picture above ,just get 3' of that same tubing. If you want do away with the valve you would need the John Guess fitting as show above to connect the tubing.

Hi John, Let me start from beginning. I have Kenmore elite Refrig. Model # 795.75549400. As shown in the picture, there is a leak in that tube between the tank and valve. I don�t know if this is part of the valve or not, but that�s the only place the water is leaking. So what is the best thing to do? Also if you recommend moving both these and just have 3 ft. of tubing; then please let me know what size (diameter) clear tubing do I need to get? The funny part of all these is that the shipping cost of the John Guess fitting is more than the cost of it itself. Regards, Kamyar

Kamyar, Your situation is slightly different then Adams. The little tube between the tank and valve is too short. It will not insert into the valve all the way, causing the leak. The manufacture does not list the part number and diameter of the little tube. It will have to be removed and measured. I recommend removing the little tube and take it with you to the local hardware store. The replacement tube needs to be 1" longer. This will save you time and money. It will also fix the problem.

Hi John, I tried to separate the tank from the valve but when I moved that ring (Pointer A) in the middle to the right, I saw a crack on the (I think it�s a part of the tank that goes inside the tube that the ring belongs to) part that the pointer Z points too. First: What is the tube that the ring belongs too and goes over the other tube? Second: How do you separate the tank from the valve? If the cracked tube is part of the tank then I should change all and put 3 ft of tubing you were talking about. I just don�t know how to separate the tank and the valve from the tubes (pointer B and C). Thanks again. Kamyar

The left latch broke off the gasket retainer. Is the retainer available as a separate part on this Kenmore or do I need to order the whole gasket that comes with retainer and latch? The original post looked like the whole gasket would need to be ordered.
