Mine is a 390 FL. So not sure if frig secured same way?? Mine had 3 short screws (1") holding a plate. (One plate on each front roller) Once the three screws came out you used a small wrench and backed off the plate. Then the plate slipped off the roller. Then we just pulled frig out of the hole ?? Rather simple. The Whirpool tech did mine when he fixed my compressor under warrantee

Whirlpool will pay for parts and labor. DW called 5 Places that work on Whirlpool appliances, but none would work On the refrigerator in a Motorhome.

Mine was worked on under warrantee. Whirpool had a local appliance repair company come right to my RV an fix it. The tech removed frig--fixed it and put it back into the wall.

Maybe If you would tell appliance repair company that you would put the frig in the middle of kitchen floor they would work on it. My guess is some companies don't want the liability of moving it from the wall

I don't have a res fridge but my Dometic is in the slide so it is raised. The guys that pulled it out took a 2x4 frame that they had built that is the correct hight. They had a piece of old carpet on the floor to slide it around. All they did was on screw the fridge and slide it out on to the platform the had. One guy did it. Well Randy helped a little but it was very easy.

Residential Fridge

I have the 2011 39 bh model and had the erratic domestic that sit on top of furnace removed and replaced with whirlpool French door with bottom freezer. It goes all the way to top and was tricky to fit in. They had to bring it through the removed window above couch but works great, holds lots of groceries and now consistently cold food.

Checked the model # of our Whirlpool and it's on their list so I'll be making the call also.

Had a leak with my 390fl, but only after the ice maker was turned off. Leaked at left lower corner. Probably a different problem. Don't really use the icemaker so I just keep it off and don't have a problem.

I just unhooked the line for the ice maker in the water compartment. There is a shutoff right there. So I closed the shut off and unscrewed the line.

It has to do with the freezer itself during the defrost cycle.

Thanks Russell. I still use the water in the door, so as long as I keep the icemaker switch off, no problems.

Paul, from the symptoms that I'm seeing, that makes sense.

I have a BH model and it sure seems like I need to add a bracket on the top to sucure. It will rock with ease.

Just got off the phone with Whirlpool and it seems that, based on the serial number, mine is not one of the refrigerators that are involved with the issue of having the 'P' trap needing to be replaced. Seems like there it was earlier models that fell into this category. I guess that this is good news but now I will be worried that I still may have this issue. Will have to wait and see. If anyone else calls, please let us know what they say about your refrigerator.
Thanks

I seems that, according to the document Joe posted, that it only affects refrigerators with serial numbers prior to K333. Mine is K334 so I guess that mine is not affected.

I called Whirlpool, they have an RV department. Who knew? Anyway, they only cover labor for one year now, not two years that was on the original Service Pointer. They still cover the part and they arrange the service call appointment. How cool is that?

Well that's great. I wonder what it cost? I was planning on doing it myself. But mine is on RB which might be easier to pull out.

Paul,
Didn't know that they had an RV Department either. I think you would probably be better off if they paid for the labor and you paid for the part instead of the other way around!!

You've got that right Tom. But with the unit elevated the way it is I don't want to mess with it.
