Leaky Icemaker hose

I have a leaky ice maker hose from the ice maker pump to the ice maker itself on a Dometic NDR1292 refrigerator. It is installed in a 2002 Country Coach Allure;30723.
I cannot see a way of replacing that hose short of pulling the refrigerator....am I missing something?

I would appreciate any insight.

Thanks

Merle

Haven't missed a thing. You don't have to pull the refer all the way out, just enough so you can get to the top of the hose so you can insert the new one through the hole into the ice maker.

You can get a replacement hose at Lowes or Home Depot back where they keep the refer installation stuff. The kit you want is a "Ice maker installation kit". It is pex or one of the other heavy duty type plastics. It will connect up to the water solenoid and then you can run it up the the hole where it will get to the ice maker. No need for the heater wire that is installed now as this line won't burst if it freezes.

Been there, done that on our '02 Intrigue

dons.....as I remember.....it looked like the portal going into the ice cube tray was glued around it's periphery. Is there a screw type connection at the back of this portal? Can I assume that in order to pull the refrig out enough, I will need to disconnect the gas line? Lastly, is the access to the upper connection from inside the rig?

I had my hose get brittle and needed replaced, with just a single service door on the outside of the Coach I had no choice but to pull the fridge out to properly perform this job correctly. I insulated the new tubing with the heat trace wire so the new tubing would not be subjected to the constant heat of the fridge unit running, That heat is what made the org. hose brittle I believe. Works great now.

Mine had goop around the hole where it enters the ice maker. There really isn't a lot of pressure so the goop will hold it.

The gas line did have to be disconnected and how you get to the upper end depends on you. If you are kinda skinny and long arms, you can get it from the outside. You can pull the refer out and then cock it to one side and reach it from the inside.

With the new line, the heat wire isn't needed but I would make sure to wrap the cheap plastic valve back up with the tape to prevent it from freezing.

You may be able to connect the old line end to end with the new hose and pull it. Cut a nail that will fit tight in the ends. Use some super glue if you think it is needed. You may also be able to use some wraps of electrical tape if you don't get it fat.

Thanks you guys....you have saved me a lot of fooling around and given me a clear path to having ice cubes again. You will be a hero to my wife as well.

As ever, what a great forum.
