Rick had to go out of town on a emergency to Idaho, so he can't be here as much as normal right now.

But yes, he meant you need to replace the Reservoir W11168758 which comes with that water line.:)

Let us know how it goes.

Fill a large glass of water 6 times. That should do it listen for any air to come out.

Hi all - not sure if its preferred to start a new thread or resurrect an old one. I have the same fridge as this thread, KFIS29BBMS00, and have found the leak at the (~70 degree fitting) right before the filter housing.
The part W11168758 seems to be just the curved reservoir, not the straight reservoir (and attached tube/fitting). Any help tracking down this part?
