How do we access the waterline inside the freezer door?

Our water line broke flush with the bottom of the freezer door. How do we access the water line inside the freezer door? Taking the panel off the inside just was a wall of insulation and no clear access points. Looks like we have to cut the insulation. We need to get in there to splice the waterline back together. Thanks for the help!

    Thanks, there was enough line in the freezer door to push it through and out a bit, now it is out the bottom a couple inches, enough to attatch it to the other line. Sure wish hardware stores were open late...

The waterline comes out the lower door hinge. Unhook from coupler at bottom. Now go to the despencer and carefully take the cover off some have screws under drip plate or clipped which a flathead screw driver works nicely dont scratch finish. With proper water line usualy 1/8 size about 5foot long snake it down to the bottom hinge and rehook up. In some case if the tube gets kinked you may have to remove door to do it it. Usually pretty easy.

Do I need to remove the bottom panel beneath the last basket of my freezer in order to see the drain tube for flushing

Hello Shirley, thank you for you post!

I understand that your Frigidaire freezer is leaking water onto the bottom panel of your freezer. This could be a possible clog within your drain line or an issue with your gasket. I would recommend performing a manual defrost on your freezer and you can do that by disconnecting power from your freezer for at least four to five hours. This will help clear out any clogs within your freezer.

You may also want to test your gasket and you can do that by using a dollar bill. Place the bill between your freezer and the freezer door. If you pull the bill and it provides resistance the gasket is good. If the bill slides out you may need to replace the gasket. It that all checks out to be in proper working order I noticed you wanted to access the drain tube. In order to access the tube you would have to remove the rear panel wall. This is not a simple DIY job and I would recommend reaching out to a professional for proper diagnosis and repair. I hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt

Your drain hose in the bottom back of the freezer is clogged and Iced up and all the defrost water is staying in the freezer and building up.

The freezer drain doesn't work and water / ice builds up in the bottom of the freezer and leaks out the bottom of the door

In the back behind the service panel is a tube that connects to the nozzle from the drain inside the freezer it can be pulled if and cleaned then also GENTLY poke a small hole in the inside part then flush w/warm water to clear.The best way i have found to clear the inside part is take a wire hanger cut&bend it and heat the tip then place inside tube so the heated tip will melt a small hole through ice so is can easily be flushed

i hope this helps

To access , remove the kickplate by either removing 1 screw on each side or just pull off ( held on by clips ) .

Water dispenser line leaking at bottom of freezer door hinge, line broken, do i need to remove the inside door panel of freezer door to replace it?

if you have enough room left you can just cut out the hole and go to any hardware store and pick up a water line coupler and repair it....if it is too short or broke up inside the door then you need to remove the water/ice dispenser and pull the line through and run the new one down the track.

Hi, The defrost drain is plugged. UNPLUG the refrigerator. Remove the rear inside panel in the freezer section and locates the drain hole below the evaporator coils. You will have to melt the ice in the drain hole and flush it out with hot water.
