Default Removal/Replacement of Ice Maker Filler Tube
Model Number: PHS66EJSB0   Brand: Frigidaire   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


The "tube-water fill, extension" (part #241796401) on my Frigidaire PHS66EJSB0 side-by-side apparently needs to be replaced because it has been leaking water down the back side of the freezer wall, eventually creating an ice flow that extends down to & interferes with (rather noisily!) the evaporator fan. I've had everything removed from the freezer cabinet before (i.e. - ice maker, container, air duct cover, etc.) but could not see any way to get access to the rear of the water tube fill extension to disconnect it from what I assume is a water line running from the outlet of the water filter on the refrigerator side.
So my question is this: To remove and replace the "tube-water fill, extension" (part #241796401) on a Frigidaire PHS66EJSB0, do you access the part from the back of the side-by-side unit (instead of from within the freezer cabinet), and if so is the replacement process fairly straight-forward or are there complexities requiring the services of a professional repairman?

Thank you in advance ... Ron

Hi Ron,

The plastic water fill tube to the ice maker is coming up from the water inlet valve on the back of the refrigerator to the hole through the back wall. It is connected to the water tube you mentioned in your question.

Pull the refrigerator out of the wall and check if there is any clamp secured the connection.

Gene.
