Whirllpool Refrigerator Broken Water Line due to heat


I have found that the plastic water lines at the back, bottom, break due to over heating and denigration of the plastic. Any solutions?

Have read this about PVC but not seen it. Perhaps this is why I have read others prefer copper and stainless braided only.
Can you improve ventilation behind the unit?

I noticed that the fan had stopped running. When I pushed the fan blade it began spinning again.

fan issue would generally be an indication of dead spot or dirty contact surface on the motor
