My Holiday Rambler has the ice maker shut off underneath the fridge cabinet inside the furnace compartment. The valve is right next to the furnace and the line broke on me once. I turned it off. Our residential fridge doesn't have an icemaker. I don't know if your coach has the same layout or not.

Ive been thu this dog and pony show recently and could not find the shut off to the fridge in the coach .

Shut the main water supply off then I wiped up the water mess and put 2 box fans on all areas to dry for the next few days

I later removed the vent cover on the outside of my coach, I could see the water solenoids for the ice maker and water deep down inside and were dripping and seen the plastic feed line to them right in front of me.

I shut off the coach water pump then cut the plastic line feeding the solenoids on the fridge and installed a shut off in the line

I had the same problem. My water line to the ice maker froze up an burst. I found the cut-off valve behind the cabinet drawer at bottom left of fridge. Have not tried to remove fridge, will leave that to dealer.

Greetings All,

The water leak behind our residential refrigerator was located by the RV service center we took it to. The refrigerator was anchored to the floor by two bolts which were accessed by going under the front of the refrigerator. Once they were backed out, the unit easily slid forward to provide the room necessary to investigate the rear.

It was the water solenoid valve attached to the water line to the ice maker that had a crack lengthwise that allowed water to flow freely. According to the insurance adjuster, inside water damage occurred to the subfloor in front and to the sides of the coach's refrigerator. There was also mention that part of the wall was damaged but I don't understand how that would be possible. I had no roof leaks nor driver's side wall delamination.

I'm waiting to hear back from the insurance adjuster on next steps in regard to repair.

I had to remove our residential refrigerator not too long ago to repair a leaky water line. I thought wed never get it out. Learned that there is no floor bracket or screw, only the trim and plate at the top. I had to have my wife push on the back of the refrigerator from the exterior vent door while I pulled from the inside. There was fiberglass insulation packed on each side of the refrigerator that was so tight, the fridge could hardly move without significant force! You may just need a little more oomph.

I just pulled out my Maytag fridge yesterday from my Beaver Thunder, I have a tile floor, I ended up retracting my front rollers as my floor had a slight gap between my tile floor and plywood subfloor under the fridge. Retracting the front rollers up let the fridge roll forward out from under the cabinet above. When the rear rollers hit the gap I then retracted those also. The gap between the tile floor and the plywood subfloor was 1.5 inches across and about 1/8 inch deep. There were no brackets or bolts on the bottom. The top was held in with a z shaped bracket between front forward edge of fridge and back cross wood piece of upper cabinet. The metal z bracket was also held down with some rubber cement along with double side tape. I had to use a thin metal scapper to pry up the metal z bracket.

On some Monacos the factory residential fridge is sandwiched into the hole. At the front there may be a metal bracket at the top. It is well designed and hefty. On the rear wall behind the fridge there is a wood spacer that sits against the back of the fridge about half way up. At the rear bottom of the fridge plywood blocks are screwed into the "floor" preventing any rear movement. Our Jennair stayed in pace until we installed a new fridge. I used the same mountingd but added angle braces at the rear and one under the front of the fridge method. Probably overkill.

Our refrigerator was removed by the RV service center and they stated to me that two bolts were unscrewed from underneath the Maytag enabling them to remove it. Like you and your wife, the mobile RV specialist and I tried to remove it by pushing from the rear and pulling from the front simultaneously, but to no avail. We could not locate any fasteners. Once I go to where the coach is located, I will find out exactly where these bolts are for any future issue.


Each coach's refrigerator may have different attachment points. Like yours, our Maytag has the same top brackets (steel underneath and decorative wood on top of it) to prevent the fridge from falling over. Ours, in addition, has the bottom fasteners that holds it in place.


Our coach has the same plywood blocks at the bottom on the floor in the rear of the refrigerator. I do not recall noticing a wood spacer about half-way up in the rear.
