this reservoir has frozen before and was repaired. it has a water line connection at either end. one is threaded and the other appears to be a plastic compression fitting. how do you disconnect the compression type fitting to remove reservoir for thawing and use again?

Replacing some parts can be a little tricky. The information you have received is for a different model. If there is a compression fitting, it will have a nut that is also threaded on. The nut will twist counterclockwise to remove it. If this is the push/pull type fitting, I'm attaching a picture with instructions of how this fitting works.

However, you can probably thaw it in place, with a hair drier. Just be careful not to get it too hot. There is a kit # W10130482 to help prevent this from reoccurring.

It's available at


. This kit will come with instructions. I hope this will help you. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website:
