The end of the line going from the dual inlet valve to the water dispenser got brittle and broke off at the valve end. I unwound one wrap from the reservoir in the dispenser to get enough slack. However, when I pushed it into the connector on the valve, now the connector leaks. Can I get a new connector, or do I have to buy the whole valve?

Try cutting the water line with a razor blade. A good straight cut before you put in the connector. Make sure the water line from the coil is the same size. I need the rest of your model number.

Yep. The problem is that the little blue connector came out of the inlet valve, and that's what is leaking. Is it possible to just get a new connector?

It is the blue one on the stock photo I have attached.
