36CKTS Residential Fridge

I opened up my Cedar Creek over the weekend after winterizing it for the winter. I have a leak beneath my fridge which leads me to believe that the ice make water line or pump cracked being there is no way that I know of to blow it out for the winter. The fridge is built in on a platform so it's not going to be easy to pull it out to examine and replace whatever broke. Has anyone experienced this?

I pulled mine out last year, it takes 2 people to do it. I removed the bracket on the top that holds it in place and slid it out onto a furniture dolly.
I used the dolly because the refrigerator sets up off the floor.
I think the water valve is on the bottom and should be an inexpensive part.

You can do some checking without removing the Fridge. The valve to solenoid section can be pressure checked by removing the supply line. If you are leaking that's where it's likely to be anyway. The tube from the solenoid to the icemaker is not under pressure. There is no pump other than your shurflo main in the passthrough. You can also check for leaks by turning your pump on with everything closed and listen for cycling which is the easiest method.
As for removal, some folks built a ramp to slide the fridge down and were able to do it solo. I know of one Creeker that had an access door installed so he could service the fridge from the back side.
As for blowing the line out, I would disconnect the supply line at the valve which will gravity drain to the solenoid. Then cycle the icemaker with a jumper wire and blow air in the freezer end of the feed tube when the solenoid opens.

Does anyone know the model number of the fridge? I'd like to purchase a new pump kit before I drive to my unit.

I think they are looking for the water valve part.
It probably is just a cracked plastic water line feeding the water valve. Either way you have to pull the fridge out yo see what is going on.

I thought that as well so I mentioned it in my earlier post but then they posted "pump" again...

BTW, here is the Whirlpool Model # also from an earlier post:

Thanks for all the responses. I plan to pull the fridge out over the weekend to see where the leak is. I'm also wondering why the fridge is raised up on the platform and not directly on the floor other than easier reach access.
Another response was that someone had an access panel installed on the outside. I'm wondering how they did this and matched the pearl finish ?

I have seen an access panel on a 38FL which is on the wood panel side next to the dinning table. (not on the outside of the rig). Your 36CKTS I would think you would have to put it into the pantry, but then it might be on the wrong side to reach the valve, not sure??
