Water Line Problem

My frig has been in storage for 2 years but last time it was used it worked.  Today, the complex I moved into finally fixed my icemaker water line (the brass line had a crack in it) and connected it to my GE Profile.  I just got home and found the line fixed, but when I turned on the small spigot under the slnk for the line, it all came leaking out from right under where the brass line connects to the refrigerator.
I was looking for someone that could service the unit in my area but came across FixYa so I thought I would give it a shot.
Thanks all!

Hi,

It would appear that the leak is from the junction/joint/connection. This could be caused by:

  • missing, damaged or incorrectly installed seal (O-ring);
  • too much clearance (could be corrected with the use of a teflon tape);
  • loose thread, damaged fitting.
Should be relatively be an easy fix with the right tools and supplies. Worst case scenario would be stripped thread or crack lock/casing.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Sorry if you don't like this solution, it does not make it work correctly. But my water works all the time now.
We too had the water dispensor stopping due to freezing of water in the storage tank. A blow dryer and about 10 minutes later we could get it working again.
We tried different fridge temp settings , and according to a thermometer placed inside the fridge in various locations we are getting the fridge temps we want, so it is not runing too cold.
I tried insulating the storage tank and the lines, this did not work.
I removed the tank and just connected the two lines, this still did not work.
I finally just pulled the lines out of the fridge completely and connected them underneath the fridge so water runs from the valve at back straight to door. The plastic panel on bottom was a great place to store the lines. I drilled a hole to reroute the door line to this area . Line runs behind lower plastic cover on front . The water does not get cold, but it never stops flowing, this was more important to us. I did consider rerouting both lines to the top shelf and putting the storage tank back in to get colder water, but no one minds the way it works so I probably will not do this. I would have run them up the back to avoid the inside lower area of the fridge. In the long run I will avoid this brand and avoid "twin-cooling" completely. All my neighbors and friends who bought this type all had to throw them away as they were too dofficult and expensive to keep running.

My Maytag side by side refrigerator [mod. #MSD2656KES, Serial #50518503JL] is freezing everything on the frig side on the two top shelves. Coils have been cleaned. Temp set:Freez=3, Frig=2. One week ago...


I have this same refrigerator, also purchased in 2006. Same exact problem. Fridge freezes, starting actually in the water line, you will notice water on door does not work, then top two shelves start to freeze. Lasts for a few days, then prob does not happen again for 6 months almost to the day. I've had this problem for almost 3 years!!! My service tech said to buy another, glitch in this system he can't figure out. Replaced damper x2, control board, and thermostat x2. Not sure what else to do. I hate the thought of more food lost to spoilage!

Well, the age doesnt help it, but have you ever changed the filter and had it all cleaned, if not all must be cleaned and filter changed, that should do it

WE have this fridge and the ice works and dispenes but the water won't come out what could be wrong does it have a water turn on and off button? We rent and just moved in


Sounds as if your line is froze up in the frig section. You can try to dispense water while one uses a hair dryer on the tank in the frig to thaw the line. Be safe with the hair dryer remove food and condiments away while doing this it might just solve this problem. BB

Yes, it was hooked up at the last location, but I wasn't the one who put installed the frig, and the movers disconnected it, so I don't know how it was done.

My 1-year old whirlpool fridge ice maker has stopped working


from the back of the frig follow the water line to where hooks to the house water line once you find it turn it off all the way and tightly then open it all the way up.......because if its located on the bottom of the pipe sometimes it plugs up and you'll clear it this way

Jenn air side by side refrigerator ice maker not working


On mine the water inlet feed tube would freeze solid. Removing the ice tray and using a hair dryer to completely thaw the tube would get it working for another month or so. My frig had a solid rubber inlet tube. I noticed at the appliance store that newer models had an inlet tube that was split on top. I got one of these from a local appliance parts store, and it fixed the problem. The tube replacement it easy. Get to the back of the frig. Turn off the water supply. Carefully pry the white plastic piece out ( located on the upper right side when facing the back of the frig. ) of the frig. When you have the new one in hand it will be clear what you are going to do. Pull out the old remove the water line. Attach the line to the new tube and insert it. Turn on water, check for leaks, and you should be ok. This repair is only effective if you have an inlet tube that freezes up. There can be many other malfunctions that stop ice makers from working. This was my problem. Replaced the tube 3 years ago and ice maker has worked fine since the replacement.

Whirlpool refrigerator leaks water inside the frig. It gathers in the pan under the lowest sliding drawer. Possibly something to do with the icemaker? I don't use the icemaker -- I flipped up the bar...


Its a done deal...:) On MY whirlpool MODEL # ETICHMXKBO3 I found the drain hole frozen.. There was some debris and clogged it up and water froze up behind it causing the deck of my freezer to fill and freeze up and cause the water to drain into the fridge. Solution: remove the ice maker(if equipped) remove the rear aluminum cover. I used a heat gun and melted the 1 1/2 of ice build up and softly with a screw driver clean the drain. When drain is visible use scolding hot water until it starts flowing to the bottom tray. I used my air compressor to finish it off....
