Q:

Replace Water Line on LG Refrigerator

A:

Replacing parts on appliances can be quite a mystery without instructions. While you are waiting on an expert to answer your question, a suggestion I have is to add model number to this thread so you can get a better answer from the experts!

I am trying to get that clarified...(it's my neighbor's). The number she gave me was LGC26905TT. I'm not finding that number anywhere. She is supposed to be getting back to me and I'll post it as soon as I have it. I didn't know if all LG's had the same set-up or not.

The model number is LSC26905TT. I think the part I need is 616F. It is the larger tube on the back. It looks fairly straight-forward, but didn't want to get it apart and find any surprises when I went to connect the tube. It looks like other folks have had problems with holes in this tubing?

Thanks for providing that updated model number and the part that you are trying to replace. You can order new tubing from the Sears PartsDirect website.

I recommend that you repair this failure by cutting the ends of the water line at the top and the bottom outside of the area where it is leaking. Use some fittings (John Guest fittings) to splice in a replacement line of tubing. Be sure that you shut off the water supply and unplug the refrigerator when completing this repair.

You should be able to find fittings to splice the water line into place at your local hardware or plumbing supply store.

If you were to replace the whole part, you would need to pull the cover shown in the first image below. After removing the screw, you will need to release the tabs that are shown in the second image. You can then remove the cover. The third image shows the water lines going into the refrigerator cabinet with that cover removed. The lines go into the refrigerator cabinet and connect to the filter housing (Key 626A in the 4th image). You will need to disconnect that line and connect the new one. To access that housing, you will need to remove the light bulb cover, light bulbs and control housing in the top of the refrigerator cavity. The other end of the line that you are replacing is probably hooked to the inlet water valve assembly shown in the 5th image. The 6th image shows how to remove that component. You can see that replacing that entire water line can be an extensive project. That is why I recommend splicing in a replacement run of tubing.

Be careful when working with the water lines. Failure to properly connect the water lines can result in a leak that will cause damage to flooring or counters.

If you need more help, reply with additional details.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Hi Lyle.. I have a question regarding the valve. I've posted a question already ..but have not heard anything.. I have and LG25950 and it has stopped making ice. per biker mike (expert) here he replied to another person saying that the water valve might be frozen. I've moved the refrig, and can see the valve, but don't know what to do next or how to remove it.. He also mentioned to flush the line.. before hooking it up and again... I don't know how.. could you assist me ?

The water valve itself is probably not frozen. The water tube that fills the ice maker could be frozen. I read the answer that Expert Jimmy provided for your question. He provides some good information. See if the ice maker has ice cubes in it. I provided some technical information about that ice maker in the image below. You can manually cycle the ice maker by pressing and holding that fill adjustment button for 3 deliberate seconds. See if you can get the ice maker to cycle in this manner. If not, then the ice maker module will probably need to be replaced. If the ice maker cycles but does not fill, you could have a problem with the water valve. You would need to determine whether the water valve is getting voltage during the fill portion of that manual cycle process. I recommend that you have a technician check this type of problem. That type of diagnosis will require a live voltage check using a volt/ohm meter. Those types of checks are dangerous. I provided a link for the Sears Service website below this reply. If you decide to have the refrigerator serviced, you can use that link to schedule a technician. If you want to continue to troubleshoot and repair this problem yourself, reply with additional details and we will try to assist you further.

Lyle W , the line on the back of my lg French door refer also had a pin hole leak. I repaired that section of line. Another pin hole developed in the old line. I'm stumped. What is causing this? The first hole developed almost immediately after we changed the filter. Could that have done something to the pressure? Lfx25960st

Hello Dan. Changing that filter would not affect the water pressure through those water lines in a manner that would cause a leak. It could be a coincidence that the leak occurred immediately after changing that filter. You may want to shut off the water supply and remove the water supply line on that back of the refrigerator. Place the end of the water supply line in a bucket and check the water pressure and flow from the end of that water supply line. The water pressure inside the refrigerator will not be more than what you see from the end of that water supply line. If that water pressure is normal then I don't think that a water pressure problem is causing your leaks. That being said, there is a chance that the water supplier was conducting some maintenance or repairs on the water supply in your area and that the system experienced a temporary spike in water pressure. You can check on that issue. If you do not find excessive supply pressure, then the water line failures were likely caused by a failure or fatigue of the water lines. I hope that this information helps. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

Thanks Lyle W. I Would like to change that entire line. The bottom is easy, but the top enters the back of the refer into styrofoam. Can you explain how to disconnect the top end? It must connect to the filter, but I do not know how to access that point. Any help is appreciated. Dan LG. Lfx25960ST

Hello Dan. That line that goes up the back of the refrigerator does go into the filter housing. I provided a parts diagram in the image below for reference. Shut off the water supply (I am sure that you already did that). You can remove that cover over the water lines on the top back panel of the refrigerator (KEY 625A). You can disconnect the short water line that comes back out of the filter housing. Since you are replacing that long water line, you can cut it if necessary. From inside the refrigerator, remove the water filter and the cover over the water filter head. You should then be able to disconnect the water line from that filter head and pull it out through that back panel. You can thread the new water line in through that back panel and connect it to the filter head. You will need to depend on your personal observation of the components in the refrigerator and use these general directions to complete this repair. If you run into problems, reply with additional details (or digital pictures if possible) and we will try to assist you further.

Hi there, Hopefully somebody here can help with this :) We have a LG LFX25960st refrigerator and similar to Dan, the water line at that back of the fridge sprung a pin hole leak roughly 4 months ago. We paid a guy $200 to come and fix that and a couple of weeks later, it sprung a leak in a different spot. He also spliced that (didn't charge this time) and here we are now with a third pin hole leak! I am not all that technical so at a complete loss as what to do. He suggested replacing the entire tube, but I wonder if there is something else causing the problem that will simply happen again with a new replacement tube? I think the fridge thermostat might be incorrect as the milk at the back of the top shelf is partially frozen. Also, it appears that a little bit of ice is gathering on the outside of the ice box. Not sure if that is condensation freezing? Anyways, any advice would be much appreciated as how to resolve the leak :) Thanks.

You will probably need to just replace that water line. It is unlikely that the new water line will leak. I will check with the manufacturer about the water line problem. I am not aware of any widespread known failures of that component. There is not any component failure in the refrigerator that will cause that water line to develop pin hole leaks. That is just a failure of the water line itself. You could be correct about the refrigerator temperature sensor being slightly off according to the details you provided. I recommend that you try adjusting that refrigerator temperature first. Give the unit 24 hours to adjust to the new setting. Place a glass of water on that back of that top shelf with an accurate thermometer inserted in the water. This will give you an accurate reading of the actual refrigerator temperature. If the actual temperature is way off, reply with the details of actual temperature and refrigerator/freezer temperature settings.

Hi Lyle, Thanks so much. I wanted to wait a little while to get back to the folks on here about the current situation. So...I haven't actually had the water line replaced yet as I wanted to wait and see if the problem would go away. Well, it has in fact worsened. There appears to be another split in the line. Additionally, I have noticed that inside the ice maker, there seems to be some sort of leak. Ice freezes constantly outside the plastic bucket making it difficult to open the inside ice door. If I turn up the temperature of the fridge, the door no longer freezes, however, water just leaks out of the door unit and into the tray below it. Additionally, in the ice bucket itself, ice does not appear to be forming correctly. Sometimes there are large chunks of ice in there. All in all, should I just get a new fridge at this point? Or do you think replacing the water line might do the trick? Any feedback much appreciated. Thanks!

Christopher,

Lyle is taking some vacation time. I will be answering his questions for a few days.

From your description you most likely have an air leak. If the ice compartment door is freezing closed, this is usually caused when the outside moist air is getting inside and the condensation is freezing. Check the refrigerator door seal and the ice door seal. Make sure the ice door is closing after use.

If you can check to see if the ice is clumping in the ice bin or the ice is coming from the ice maker in big chunks, this can also help us determine your next course of action. I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance please reply to this post.

I hope this is helpful. Check the things I have covered here and if I may be of further assistance please reply to this post.

Hi Landell, thanks for responding. Well, from what I recall seeing, the large clump of ice was inside the bin. I had to take out the bin unit in order to retrieve it. Also, I have noticed that ice gathers not only around the peribmiter of the bin, but also beneath it and behind it. Quite a lot of it too. We end up having to remove the bin and hack off all of the ice just to get it to properly work again. Also, on the back of the bin itself, a lot of ice accumulates where the metal wheel thing turns. One thing I did whilst hacking away the ice with a pair of scissors (I know, not recommended), was put a tiny little crack in the plastic surround inside the fridge door that the ice bucket sits on top of. All of these problems existed before I did this, but not sure if I have caused any further damage? Thanks.

Hello Christopher. I think that Landell is correct about an air leak into that ice compartment causing your problems. A crack in that line could cause that situation to become worse. I recommend that you have a service technician physically examine the refrigerator and fix this type of failure. Here is a link for the Sears Service website: Sears Home Services . If you need more help, let us know.

Hello Peter. It sounds like you are describing the collet that is shown in the John Guest water fitting that I provided below. That collet or collar needs to be pressed in toward the valve or the fitting to remove the water line or tank fitting. The new valve should have those collets in place. The water tank and the water line will need to be pushed into the new valve fitting and seated. You can then tug back on the line or tank to make sure that it is seated properly in that fitting. I hope that this explains the issue that you are describing. If not, I recommend that you reply with additional details (or send us some digital pictures of the issue if possible). We will try to assist you further if possible. Thanks.

Guess what, I am also getting random pinhole leaks in the 5/16 tubing. I now have 3 pinhole leaks that spray water to release pressure after you use the water feature on the fridge. In any case, I need to replace the whole line. Placing a 3rd compression fitting is laughable at this point. I purchased my fridge in 2006. LRSC21935TT Can I just purchase 5/16 OD tubing? Is there any "O" ring or anytihng else special I need to replace the line? fyi - probably going to also replace the 1/4 OD tubing next to it as I am leary of it as well. SInce I will have the fridge apart I might as well replace both. Thank you in advance.

Hello Eric. You should be able to find that line locally at a hardware store, appliance repair part outlet or home center and replace it on your own. That system has John Guest water fittings. Just push in the collar on that fitting and pull the existing water line out. Make sure that the new water line is clean cut with a flat tip. Push the new water line into the fitting until it stops. Pull back slightly to make sure that it seated in the fitting. It does not need any o-rings or seals. That fitting should seal properly. If you need more help, let us know.

I am sure I will forget some detail but the first few steps are self-explanatory. Step 1 - Shut off water to fridge. In my case a had a self-tapping T-valve in the basement that I shut off. Step 2 - Pull out the fridge to access the back. Disconnect the power. Step 3 - Remove the water supply line connected to the water inlet valve. Have a tupperware ready catch any residual water leaking out of the supply line. Have a towel ready to catch everything else that hits the floor before you make it to the tupperware. Step 4 - Remove the bottom aluminum cover. I always put the screws back into their holes so I don't lose them...fyi. With the cover removed you can now see the water lines and water valve (see pic on left). Green arrows are pointing to the 5/16 line and 1/4 inch line and their U-clips that need to be removed. I tried to remove the water valve for better access but the red arrow is pointing to a short piece of supply line that doesn't provide the slack required to pull the valve out. I left it in and still had room to work. Step 5 - Remove the U-clips from both lines. You then have to push UP on the ring you pulled the U-clip from to release the line. Pull the line out and have your tupperware ready. I had to use needle nose pliers to grab the U-clip on the 1/4 inch (middle pic). Take your time and be careful not to break them. Step 6 - Drain the water from the lines. The ends of the lines have a metal spring sleeve that prevents the line from kinking. Remove the sleeves and save them for the new lines.(right picture) I think an expert will have to reply to this in order for me to continue to post. Hope this helps...
