What your describe sounds like a water line, though im not sure what you mean by closed end, as neither end would be closed on any water line. Now, if work was done previously, its possibly just a scrap piece, and you would further likely have no water leak issues. However if no work was done previously, you would likely have a leak somewhere.

A tube with pink fluid got knocked off in the freezer. What is it and where does it get reattached?

It's not a part of a refrigerator I recognise by description. If it's pink, have you asked any children in the family to identify it?

Ween two 15mm bidet pipes which are about 3 inches apart and slightly at an angle

I don't know all of your situation, but I have found 1/2" flexible connection lines braided or neoprene very adequate. Another suggestion is to use 3/8" plastic tubing with appropriate fittings. Hope this is helpful.

Water drips from the back upper area inside the refrigerator. Sometimes I find a small puddle of water on the floor. It is only 6years old. Model CTB1821ARW

Look at the back wall of your fridge and at the top centre you will see a small plastic tray about one and a quarter inch square, this is part of the drain system for the freezer defrost cycle, you will find that the drain tube from this tray is blocked with debris from the freezer.

To clear the blockage:
At the outside rear of the fridge you will see a rubber tube that runs down the centre and disappears under the lower section where the compressor is located, pull off the grill below the fridge section door at the front of the unit, locate and remove the water evaporation tray, locate the the end of the aformentioned rubber tube, insert the end of a water filled baster into the end of the tube and hold it securely in place with one hand and then squeeze the baster bulb with the other hand to force water up the tube, you may have to do this more than once but it should clear the blockage, if not you may have to use a short blast from a air hose.
When you replace the evaporation tray ensure that the end of the rubber drain hose is located in the tray.

Good luck!

When the dipstick was removed, the top of the tube to the engine broke off. How to repair please? Thank you

Plastic dip stick funnels are always snapping off.

Remove what you can see down to metal tube. With small hook on end of stiff wire, pull out inner plastic sleeve from tube.

If it won't come out...push it down so new funnel can be installed.

It can't hurt as the tube ends one eighth of an inch from the oil pan floor.

FYI. You need to cover top of new dip stick funnel with cloth and push home until you hear it click onto tube.

Looks like you have a clogged drip tray channel. Unplug the refrige ,leave freezer and food compartment doors open for at least 12 hours. After that look under behind the refrige for a plastic-rubber tubing ending in the drain pan under the refrige.That is clogged, get a 2 feet hose 1/2 inch diameter. Attach end to the drain tubing then blow through this will clear the way.. and your done.

Hi Cranberry,

The part your looking for is #8201537. You can see it here.

Threading it through the door is simple if you know the secret to it. First you need to go to hardware store and get something like this about an inch, inch and a quarter. Take a piece of 1/4" tubing with you to make sure the "all-thread" will screw into the tubing snugly.

Now, screw the all-thread into the spout end of the existing tubing (the one in your fridge right now) about half the length of the all-thread. Then take the tail end of the new tubing and thread it onto the left over stub of all-thread.

Open both doors and remove the bottom grill (it's snapped in place) then close the doors. Below the freezer door hinge, you'll see the tubing coupling. Disconnect it and remove the ferrule for use on your new tubing later. Now at the same time, begin pushing the tubing from the top and pulling it from the bottom.

Hello Maxleilao,

You said, Both Freezer and Fridge compartments stopped keeping optimum temperature. Freezer compartment is working as a fridge, and fridge also not keeping the temperature as it should. Both temperature controls are on maximum (I actually tried many different combination's with no luck).

What is the model #.
How old is it?

If the fridge is only a couple of years old , try turning it off and then! unpluging it for 5 minute and then
restarting it.
What happened?
if nothing good then most likely it is this next task!

It should be on a sticker inside the door jam or close to it on the inside wall of the fridge.
If it is real small like a counter high fridge, the number may be on the rear.
If the fridge is full size fridge check in the rear to locate where the condenser is. (lt looks like a thin row of black tubes that the freon travels through).
If not and they are under the fridge behind a removable plastic grille in the front of the fridge.
If this is the case then remove the plastic grille to see if the rows of thin (black tubes) called a condenser is covered with one to two inches of dust and not visable yet due to the blanket of dust!
This makes the condenser (black tubes) hot and unable to cool.
Air is sucked in from the front and passes over these tubes and cools the freon.

That is making it hot and the fridge and freezer warm.
You will need a flash light,
The plastic grille comes off when you press down on the top and up on the bottom together. Like squeezing the grille with your fingers until it comes off in your hands.
Get a flashlight, and get down on the floor and look under the fridge at the condenser. If all you see is an inch or two deep of lint and dust, then you need to buy a refrigerator brush at the hardware store and clean the thick coating of dust off.The brush is one inch wide and round with a very long handle 36 inches. Do this very slowly and gently. Remember the freon is in these tubes so you don't want to bend them and get a leak.
I know this was a long explanation but if this is the case I just saved you a service call.
It will take some hours to get cool again if this did not cause any damage to the compressor!
Some times all night till it reaches the max. temperature.

If there is no condenser below, or this does not do the trick, you may need to replace the thermostat!
or have a low freon level.

Waiting for your response

Let me know!
Please remember to leave a rating at the end!

Feezer still cold frig warm

Glenn V,

ngfam1 at your service,
Happy to assist!

What is the model and year of your fridge?
Or rather how old is it?

1.-First is the freezer packed to the top where the frozen food covers the vents or air vents in the freezer?
The freezer and the refrigerator share the compressor and the cold air and the vents or passages between them must be kept some what clear! This can cause the warm fridge some times!

2.- Did you ever clean the tons of dust accumulated under the fridge on the condenser?
You gently pull off the front grill and with a flash light while laying on the floor eye ball the situation under the fridge!
If it's full of dust 2 inches high and all the way across and you can not see the thin black tubes of the condenser then this is the reason!! You need a refrigerator brush from home depot or some place to clean it out! A VACUUM WILL NOT FIR IN THERE ! AND BE CAREFUL AND GENTLE THE FREON RUNS THROUGH THOSE TUBES!
I've seen this many times that the folks never ever ran a refrigerator brush under there as long as they owned the fridge!
And the next day, 24 hours later it was up to full temperature!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! if you can not remove the grill, open the user guide and the book will tell you how to install the grill by pressing with your fingertips at the top and bottom of two clips or flaps of plastic that are part of the grill. One set top and bottom about 6-8 inches from the left end and the opposite on the right end!
If there is no condenser under neath and it is in the rear of the fridge you will recognize it in the back ,being thin black tubes running up and down the back of the fridge! ITS ONLY ON REAL OLD MODELS OR REAL CHEAPPPPPPPPPPPP MODELS.

IF THE FRIDGE IS 9 YEARS OLD OR MORE , DO NOT INVERST ANY GOOD MONEY INTO A BAD FRIDGE. And buying a new one will save you money on the elctric bill!
They are all much more effiecent than the older ones!
And it will pay for it self in a few years!
ngfam1 Bless YOu,
please give me the best rating here on befroe you sighn off!
Let me know if it works!
