Q:

How do I replace Kenmore refrigerator 79578309805 part 233 E? 79578309805

A:

Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect. I can certainly assist you in locating the instructions to replace the door cam on your refrigerator. I did look into the model number you have provided and I have found information to assist you.




To replace the holder, first pull the gasket off the door. It will pull off. Now, remove the top screw to the cam and remove the cam and the white plastic piece under it. Also pay very close attention to the small spring and how it's attached. The rod will slide out and the new rod will slide back in place. However, I recommend replacing the gasket assembly because it's much simpler, it does include the holder and cam and the cost is just slightly more, than the holder. These gaskets have always been complete with both the holder and cam already assembled in place. 

Let me know if this helps.

Thanks for the link, but that isn't going to help, because my drain tube is visible...but I just can't get the old one off without breaking the little tabs that hold it on.

Thanks for providing that model number. That helps us see the type of refrigerator that you have. I am not clear on the details of the drain tube that you are describing. Based on that model number, I am not aware of a drain tube that runs down the outside back of the refrigerator. The only drain tube that I see in that parts diagram for that refrigerator is KEY 105A in the first image below. That is a drain tube for the evaporator drain pan and it is inside the bottom rear service panel. There is a water supply tube (KEY 616E in the second image) on the back of that refrigerator. That tube supplies water to the ice maker in the freezer. If you are trying to replace one of those components, reply with additional details and we will try to assist you further. If you are attempting to replace a different component, I recommend that you send us digital pictures of the part if possible. A part number or KEY number from the parts diagram would also help. We will try to assist you further once we receive more information.

Lyle, thanks for trying to help me. It is the second diagram. I am sorry I had the wrong information about it listed. I do not have the part number. It is a black tube with a round thing at the top which goes into the fridge. The other end of the tube goes into the lower side of the fridge. The original part is held on with little white pieces of plastic. I don't know how to remove it without breaking those plastic pieces. Also the original bottom of the tube does not come out easily...I am afraid to force it. I took a picture of the part, but the TOP of the refrigerator is at the LEFT of the picture - bottom on the right. Hope this helps, so I can actually get this fixed. Thanks again.

Thanks for sending the picture and clarifying the part that you are trying to replace. That is the water supply line for the ice maker in the freezer. You will need to UNPLUG the refrigerator and shut off the water supply. You can remove the cover for the valve assembly as shown in the image below. You should then be able to remove the end of that tube from the water valve assembly. Be prepared for water to leak out of the fittings when you remove that tube. There should be a collar on the connection of that valve that needs to be pushed in toward the valve. With that collar pushed in , you can pull that tube out of the valve. You can then pull the end of that tube through the clips on the back of the refrigerator. You can remove the screws from the white clip shown in your photograph that secures the fitting when it goes into the back of the cabinet. You should then be able to carefully pull that tube and the fill tube and the injection tube for the ice maker out. This information may help you replace that part. You will need to rely on your personal observation of the parts to fill in any gaps in this repair procedure. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details and pictures if necessary.

Replacing some parts can be a real challenge. Unfortunately, there are no instructions to replace this part. The holder is normally only available with the complete gasket assembly. It will already be in place. I recommend replacing the complete gasket # 4987JJ2003F which will come with the holder and cam already assembled. I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and I will be glad to assist you further. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
