39mb refrigerator leak

Just put water in our new to us 2016 39mb and discovered a water leak in the refrigerator. I took the access panel off inside on the back wall and found a crack in the 5/16 line that is coiled up to provide cold water. This was an easy fix by cutting the line and removing the coiled up part and just having a straight line to the valve and connecting it with a push to connect fitting. Now I have water leaking out from under the stove and cabinet and seeping out the bottom of the slide out. Does anyone know the routing for the water line to go to the back of the fridge. THANKS. Obviously it was a bad winterization job.

In my 2018 MB there is a bottom drawer under the stove/cooktop. Take the drawer out and there is a piece of thin plywood behind it on an angle. Remove that and you should find a second valve. This is where the connection is made from the white hose under the slide to the 1/4 ice maker line. First thing I did was remove the plastic line and install a braided stainless steel line.

I noticed that line. We don't have plywood covering ours and when you shut the drawer it bends over the line. Probably be replacing that soon.

I have a 2016 39MB, a year after I purchased it in Texas pulled it to Fort Lauderdale, Fl. Shortly after arriving I too developed a water leak from under the stove and cabinet. The lower cabinet next to the fridge on the left has a dummy panel in the back. When I removed it I found a factory connection for the water/ice supply line for the fridge. Replaced with new connection problem solved. Hope this helps.
