Sears Coldspot / Whirlpool

Ran across an old Sears refrigerator, model # 106.6696000. The black rubber piece that connects the drain inside the ref. to the drain on the back of the refrigerator was dry-rotted and cracked....causing it to leak when defrosting.

I replaced it with FSP part # 532732. I've never replaced one of these before, and I actually tore the end of it before I finally got it in there. It was a pain in the butt.

Anyone have any tips on how to install these easier. Maybe put it in hot water to soften it up some first? The one that I put in the ref. may have been old and "hardened" since I have no idea how long it had been in the service van.

Just curious.

It's been awhile since I've changed one, but I think I put a light coating of vaseline on it.
