Is this a joke? Fuel lines are not a problem with my refrigerator. And thank you for telling me that a refrigerator is one of the most important and used appliances in the home. Now can someone actually read my message and try to help? When asking the question this site says to BE SPECIFIC and choose one's words very carefully. Thus, I did not expect to get a reply that is obviously very generic and doesn't help at all.

Thank you for your question. I understand your concern about the water lines and I'm sorry about the information you received. I'm attaching a picture of the water valve assembly. The valve on the right side shown is where the water inlet (supply) line connects, then the outlet will go to the water filter and from the water filter the water travels to the other side of the valve. This side (left) of the valve separates the water dispenser and the icemaker. The second image illustrates how this type of water connection works. You can purchase a 1/4" connection # W10277958 from http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/W10277958/0046/106?pathTaken=directMatch&filterPart=&pop=flush&prst=0&shdPart=W10277958&sid=MMLxexpertxmerch . There is also a water tube kit # 4387492 available at SearsPartsDirect . 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 your reply, Sir. I appreciate the time that you're taking to help me. I have some remaining questions that are left unanswered. I get that I can replace the tubing and join-up the 1/4" ends with a connector. But recall above that I have another issue: I removed the end of the 1/4" tube that goes into the valve assembly. I didn't quite know how that tube was retained so I used a needlenose pliers to pull the collar around the tube at the valve. This effort effectively lifted the collar away and then I pulled the tube with some force to remove it. I noticed a metal ring around the tube. I also broke the collar on the second tube from the valve that goes to the water dispenser. Does this mean that I have to buy a new valve? Or can I just replace the collar and that metal retaining ring? Thank you.

The valve is not serviceable. It will need to be replaced. I hope this helps you.
