Question and Answers

Q:

How do I replace the water-fitting assembly (part 4388152 - water tube only) on my Kenmore side-by-side refrigerator?

A:

The second image below shows the parts diagram for your dispenser. Here are the steps for replacing the water fitting assembly:

  1. Unplug the refrigerator to disconnect electrical power.
  2. Shut off the water supply to the refrigerator.
  3. Open the doors and remove the bottoms front grill (see procedure at the top of the second image).
  4. The second image shows where the water tube connection is for the dispenser. Some models may have a John Guest fitting where you just need to push in the collar and pull out the water tube. Arrange towels to catch residual water and pull the tube out for the dispenser.
  5. Remove the drip panel (Key 9) from the dispenser.
  6. Pry off the front dispenser housing cover (Key 21). Tape a flat tip screw driver to prevent scratching the door. Pry out on the bottom of the cover to remove it.
  7. Note the position of the wire connections and unplug the wire harness on the switch assembly (you may want to take a digital picture of the harness to make sure that you replace it properly).
  8. Remove the screws (Key 22) that secure the bracket assembly (Key 15) in the dispenser housing.
  9. Pull the bracket assembly out far enough so that you can remove the screw (Key 22) that secures the water fitting assembly in the dispenser.
  10. Pull the water fitting assembly through the front of the dispenser.
  11. Insert the tubing through the hole in the dispenser housing and run it through the door.
  12. Secure the spout with the screw.
  13. Reassemble the dispenser housing.
  14. Connect the water line at the bottom of the refrigerator.
  15. Open the water supply valve for the refrigerator.
  16. Plug the refrigerator back in and test the dispenser. Check the fitting at the bottom of the refrigerator for leaks.
These tips should help your replace the water fitting assembly. If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details.
