Jenn air whirlpool Copper discharge tube part 67002494

This part Appears to be discontinued. Does anybody know how to obtain this part? There is a whirlpool equivalent WP12532603Q.

I’m looking for any suggestions because this $100 part is going to Force me to buy a new refrigerator, and I am trying to fix the one I own.

I have no idea where you'll find that part. All I can suggest you try contacting every Whirlpool/Maytag parts depot and service agent you can find to see if anyone has one still kicking around. (I personally wouldn't hold my breath. It's not the kind of part most companies would keep in stock.)


I believe that tubing is used to evaporate the water in the drain pan. They're often just a piece of copper tubing, coated to prevent corrosion from contact with the water. I'm sure the tubing could be recreated from regular refrigeration tubing but I don't know what to coat it with, maybe shellac or polyurethane? Frigidaire Canada used tubing in a similar way that was tinned. (It still deteriorated.)

It might also be possible to bypass that tubing and find an electric heater to use in the drain pan instead or a separate electric condensate pan. Many commercial refrigerators use them. I don't know a specific one to recommend. You could try asking a commercial refrigeration parts supplier or service agent if they can suggest something. (The physical size of the pan might need to be known as well.) Such a heater could be wired into the condenser fan or compressor circuit.

Of course, any modifications would have to be agreed to by the technician performing the service and they might not be willing to warrant such repairs afterward.

I don't know if you're still considering repair but I just came across a moistral evaporator system on a Frigidaire product what might be able to be used in place of that original tubing. This one is a more compact design but looks to be 2½ - 3 inches tall so clearance under the drain might be an issue.

You'd still need to get the Ok from the person performing the service.
