    Water is constantly leaking from water/ice dispenser in front of freezer door
    For model number PS123SGRA
    Hi Hilda, Thank you for the question. I suggest testing the Micro Switch in the dispenser and the water inlet valve. If either are stuck in an open position it can cause the dispenser ti leak. Hope this helps!

    My question is my icemaker quit working and my tube going to my icemaker is slow or it froze
    Hello Ricky, Thank you for the question. If the line is freezing, you may need a new valve. The valve might be "stuck" open and allowing enough water through to keep water in the tube and sit until it freezes. You can also check the water line for any cracks or holes that would allow the cold air in and freeze the line. Hope this helps!

    Water is leaking on to the floor when we use the water dispenser. You can hear the water flowing through the frig but nothing comes out at the dispenser. Also some water in the frig.
    For model number GSHS5KGXECSS
    Hello Johnathan, Thank you for your question. If the water is leaking on the floor, it is very likely that the water line for your model or the water inlet valve has a leak. We suggest looking at the back of your refrigerator where the waterline connects to the water valve, and see where the leak specifically is coming from. That will determine which part needs to be replaced. Hope this helps!

    Hi, this GE profile side by side 36 inch fridge is about 7 years old. Every month or so since 3 years, about 2 inches of water accumulates under the crisper. I am noticing black and white mold but particularly on the left side adjacent to the freezer. I am tired of constantly having to clean this fridge and considering buying a new one altogether! We thought that this may be due to the door seal? My son has just lowered the temperature of the freezer to 6 degrees...help?
    For model number pshs6ygxbdss
    Hello Kathryn, thank you for writing. The source of the leak could be this Grommet / Tube Assembly, part number PS292253 for your model refrigerator. Check to be sure it is not clogged or damaged. You may also want to consider the Water Valve, part number PS1483564 as the cause. You can get rid of the mold by flushing the whole area with chlorinated water, then clean it with mild detergent followed with a dilute chlorine bleach solution, afterwards flushing the area thoroughly to remove any chlorine residue, in addition to repairing the original leak. Good luck with your repair!

    Where the 1/4 " waterline connects to the bigger line( not sure what size) that feed into the back, top lh corner of the unit, that brass fitting is leaking. We tried to just replace the 1/4" nut and furrell, but can't get it to stop leaking.I want to replace the bigger water line along with a new 1/4" brass fitting. What is that part number? For the GE waterline?
    For model number DSL260HWA

        Water leaking under the refrigerator only when water was called from water dispenser
        To do this repair, I shut off the water supply first. After removing the back panel, I disconnected the first water tank (PS291933) tube from the valve near the back of the refrigerator by pushing the white ringclamp towards the valve which released the tubing (once disconnected I could clearly see the hairline crack in the tube responsible for the water). I then disconnected the other water tank tube from the connector located in the bottom left front of the refrigerator. Then, after removing the bottom shelves and compartments, I unscrewed the two screws securing the water tank to the inside back wall. Then I carefully pulled the water tank and the tubing out from inside the refrigerator. The installation of the new water tank was essentially the reverse of the above, with the exception that I had to use a 2x4 to prop up the refrigerator and my 7-year old daughter's hand to help guide the tube to the front of the fridge. One of the lines did leak initially, but stopped after I removed and reconnected the tube more securely. My only unfinished business with this part of the repair (which I'm not losing sleep over) is I'm not sure where to find the 'insulation wrap' that was around the water tank tubes inside the fridge.

        During my investigation of the water tank, I also noticed the tube on the outside back of the fridge going to the icemaker was leaking, so I bought a new grommet & tube (PS292253). Installation was easier than the water tank, but was more of a mystery until the part showed up and I saw that only adhesive tape was used to secure the grommet to the hole in the outside back of the freezer near the icemaker. Again, only had to disconnect the tube from the valve at the bottom of the fridge and pull out the grommet from the top outside. (I did remove the ice cube tray from the inside to avoid contaminating it during the work). Then I connected the new tubing and secured the grommet to the back of the fridge using the adhesive tape. So far no leaks!


        I also will likely need to add that WR49X10173 part to hopefully avoid my water dispensor from freezing in the future.

        Tube feeding ice maker leaking.
        Moved refrigerator out from wall. On the back of the refrigerator at the bottom there is a metal plate. Removed this plate with a socket wrench to expose where the end of the tube pluged in. The grommet securing the tube, white on my unit, had to be pushed up to release the old tube. I pushed the new tube into where the old one was and it self secured the tube. The other end of the grommet I pushed through the hole feeding the ice maker,first pushing out the broked part with a screwdriver,and securing that end with the attached sticky tape already attached to the grommet. I cleaned the area around the hole with alcohol before attaching the grommet.Replaced metal plate and done. No leaks.

        water leaking from grommet tube assembly at back of fridge
        After thawing out freezer pushed water supply tube out from inside freezer diconneted the supply line from the valve assembly by pushing in the bushing with my finger and inserting the new line. Sadly that wasn't the problem!For anyone with the same symptoms of ice building up on your ice maker, to the point where it clogged the water supply line and started leaking from the grommet assembly. The problem is the valve not closing when the ice maker does not need any water. so I ordered a new valve and hopefully that will fix my problem.

        Icemaker supply hose leaking at freezer entrance
        I did it the way you recommended except rather than removing the existing tube from the water valve at the bottom of the fridge I cut the existing and new tubes and then spliced the new tube to the old tube. I already had the splicer nut so it was quicker and easier. By the way, shipping was very quick and you prices and your website are excellent!

        Intake hose to ice maker broke
        After shutting off the h2o, I unplugged the refrigerator. Using the nut driver, I removed the cardboard backing. Then I removed the fitting where the inlet line to the ice maker and pried the old tubing from the unit. I then undid the clasp about 1/2 way up the back and removed the section that went through the back to the ice maker.
        I then reassembled everything and plugged in the refrigerator as well as turning on the water.
        Keep in mind that because h2o and electricity are involved. MAKE SURE THERE ARE NO h2o LEAKS.

        water line (from the PS304374 Dual Inlet Water Valve) to the ice maker was craked and leaking
        1. Removed the back panel of the fridge to get access to the inlet water valve.
        2. Removed black poly water line from valve (pull back on white ring where line is attached and pull the line out)
        3. Removed the inlet tube from top-back of fridge (where it goes into the ice make). use putty knife to get under the sticky white gasket beneath the black oval housing and pull the tube out form the back of the fridge.
        4. Replace the water line with new part taking care to properly seat the line into the the bottom water valve and pushing the water tube into the hole for the ice maker.

        Note: Be sure to take off the protective covering from the white - sticky grommet and push to adhere to metal on fridge.

        to be safe - use a bit of clear silicone chaulking round the perimeter of the grommet and push to tighly bond the water inlet tube to the fridge.

        The reason for this - is that if you do not get a good bond using the white - sticky gormmet alone - you may have the water tube inside the ice maker freeze up.

        Also once the new water line is installed be sure to secure the line to the metal back of the fridge - so the line will not move. some fridges come with metal hose clamps to do this - otherwise use duct tape
