Water was leaking at valve, luckily it was only a mist, but still leaked through to basement before I noticed it.
Removed back panel using 1/4 inch nut driver. Shut off water and removed water supply line with a 1/2 inch open end wrench Then removed water supply line to ice maker & water @ door. This requires no tools, just push down on orange fitting & pull out tubing. Remove bracket and water valve assembly and install new one.

Water leaking from beneath the refrigerator
Emptyed refrigerator and pulled back from the wall. Turned off the water while moving then turned water back on. It was easy to see that the leak was coming from the water valve for the ice maker.
We ordered the part and it came on time and the problem is now fixed.
his is not the first time we have bought from partselect.com. We also were able to fix a problem with our Jenn-Air range which needed a replacement circuit board.

Water Leak@Spout - Motherboard Lost it's Mind - Broken Ice Auger
Valve wasn't closing completely, replaced ALL valves I'm already in there). Got a pair of valves as spares too. Motherboard went AWOL...as a computer engineer it was a simple diagnosis....replace ..the broken Auger?....that was user error...Housekeeper put an ice pack in the ice drawer...you can just imagine the consequences. How easy was it?.....SO easy little hint....don't bother to wrestle the hoses off the valves...just cut them flush with the valve body....there's plenty of hose to spare. If you're a younger person you can do it in 15 mins

Water dispenser did not work (ice-maker did work)
This is a side-by-side frige with water and ice dispenser in the left freezer door. I first checked for possible water line freezing in the freezer door or in the water chiller area (behind the vegetable drawers) as described in e-articles I had read, but this did not appear to be the problem. I found two solenoid valve pairs; one that routes dispenser or ice-maker water to the filter and the other that routes the water to the end device. I ran a couple of tests on the solenoid valves and found that the first inlet valve that sends water to the filter did not work, but the second valve that relays the water to the dispenser was still working. By temorarily connecting the wiring for the dispenser solenoid to the functioning ice-maker solenoid, I confirmed that the wiring and switch were working properly and that the problem must be the solenoid itself (it also still hummed when the dispenser button was pressed). The entire quad solenoid valve assembly can be pulled out after removing the one hex-screw on the back of the frige (the assembly is all held together with a bracket). I disconnected the wiring connector to the solenoid valves. I disconnected the plastic water tubing by pushing it toward the fitting and then depressing the tubing inlet ring to release the tubing. I removed the two screws holding the solenoid valve and replaced it.

Water stopped running
Pulled the refrigirator out and removed the screws holding the cardboard cover in place. DISCONNECTED POWER. Then I removed the single screw holding in place the pumps assembly and pulled it out.
The incoming pump was not working in my case (this is the second time in 3 years it breaks down).
The incoming water hose can be easily disconnected as it screws in. However the hose leaving from the bottom of the pump needs a special technique and some force (squeeze and pull hard). It might be easier to use scissors to cut it altogether and be sure the hose is not damaged.
To reconnect it just push the hose deep into the pump, really easy. The just put the assembly back together, backover and all done.

Water had leaked out behind the refrigerator and seeped into the basement walls. Noticed the paint peeling off the walls and traced the problem to the refrigerator's leaky valve
The leak was obvious and I took out the cardboard backing. I closed the valve (water supply) to the water dispenser and ice maker.

With the screw drivers and socket set, I was able to take out the old valve and disconnect the hoses.

Since the part was identical to the leaky valve it was just a matter of reversing the steps. I had previously researched on the web to find the identical part and found a match at Partselect.com. I wish all my repair attempts turn out to be this easy. I wish GE had used better parts since this incident has set me back by several thousand dollars due to the water damage to the wooden floors, basement ceiling and walls.
