Ann. and Pat. owners of two Parrotfish (Below fig.1 to fig.3). Pat called my service company to do a refrigerator service. She stated that there was water underneath the refrigerator and that maybe the water line was the problem.
This post shows the seven steps to replacing a leaking plastic water line into a refrigerator.

Step 2: Check the water line coming from the water supply. In this case an old 1/4 inch copper pipe with a turn-off key. Fig.4 below shows the copper line attached to a clear plastic line.
Step 3: Fig.4 shows the plastic water line is leaking located at the finger tip. A little spray was causing the leakage on the floor. This meant the water line needed replacement.
