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.

I moved my GE TFX277PFSB (new in 1994) side by side to my enclosed sun porch 2 years ago when i got a new fridge for the kitchen. Today, I decided to run a water line to it to allow it to make ice again. ...


Hello,
Make sure the arm on the icemaker is in the down position,if it is up and locked in place the icemaker is off. If it is down and the icemaker is turned on,each time it got cold enough the to cycle the icemaker(usually about a hour) the icemaker started and for 7 years power was sent to the water inlet valve to fill the icemaker and the icemaker side of the water valve is burnt up. The water valve has 1 inlet teh house water supply attaches to and 2 outlets 1 for icemaker and 1 for door dispenser

I have just moved in to a flat with a vent axia storage heater. I switched it on last night and although the output in off it is still heating up the room today. Is that normal? thanks Heather


Yes, Heather, it's working correctly. It lives up to it's name "storage heater". When you turned it on last night, it heated and at the same time it was storing heat to be used later, during peak electrical use hours, without having to use any electricity. It's working as it should.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a 1993 geo tracker 2wd and today took it for emissions test and it failed for excessive NOx. The tech who tested it informed me that it would either be timing, temp, egr valve or cat conv. Last year...


The check engine lights come on every 50k miles on the Trackers as maintenance reminders so you can take to a dealer to pay big bucks for him to push a slide switch hidden underneath the left speaker cover! Sounds like you have a bad chip in your ECU unit causing the injectors to give the engine too much fuel. You can replace just the chip, but the catalytic convertor can be partially stopped up if it has been running too rich for a while, the oxygen sensor would be what I recommend you replace first.

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.
