If you want to replace just the water line going inside the door, you are out of luck. The water line is foamed in place inside the door and is not replaceable without replacing the entire freezer door. If you want to just remove the door, the water line disconnects by pushing the collar on the insta-push fitting toward the center of the fitting while pulling on the tube, all of which is located behind the toe kick plate near the bottom hinge of the freezer door. The same door is used on the PSS26MRSASS, PSS26MRSCSS, PSS26MRSDSS, and the PSS26MRSESS. It is part # WR78X11742 and runs about $500. (note: even if you don't like what you just read, accurate info on your repair question deserves a "FixYa" rating, not just a "helpful" or "thanks for trying".)

Water does not stop pouring from water/ice dispenser. Door-to-door GE Profile Refrigerator Model TFX22PPDACC. How to troubleshoot the problem? Or what part need to be replaced?


With the water running tube/pipe is cracked in between or its got loose from its fitting.First inspect the line for this problem.The tube from which water passes, one end is connected to the water valve at the back base of refrigerator.And then from valve two tube runs.One tube is for water dispenser and another tube is for ice chamber filling.Follow that tube from back of the refrigerator.The water dispenser tube That passes through the freezer door also.And the ice maker tube.That connects to the back of ice maker tray.The water fills in the tray.See if that tube is got loose and its not throwing water out instead of ice maker tray.Many a times this happens.--- May be you need to remove the ice maker to get exact location for tube setting and position.----------- But if tubes from water and ice dispenser sections are fitted properly and then there can be crack in the tube.------------But if tubes checked out ok then other possibility can be faulty water fill grommet.------- The grommet is cracked.And that is causing the leak.--------- Go to the back of the unit and remove the cover at the lower right of the unit. This is where the water line goes into your unit. Remove the water line at the solinoid that goes to your ice maker . This will allow you enough slack to remove the old water fill tube and replace it with the new one.
You need to push the white retainers in to release the tubeing from the solenoids.
------------
The part you need is called fill tube grommet.It has to be removed and replaced.The tube is connected to the grommet. Click this link below for more help:---http://technoanswers.blogspot.com/2011/06/how-to-remove-ice-maker-fill-tube-from.html
------------ The other possibility for this leak, is water valve.The water valve close and open.When its open, it lets water to the tube.When it closes it stops water.But if the valve is not closing then it will let the water to enter non stop, slowly --- slowly the inside tube getw over filled and then starts leaking.------------ The water valve is not required as per the problem.But if after doing all the repairing, still the same problem, noticed then water valve is required.Because is water valve is not closing properly, then it leaks some water, (drop by drop) and this can cause water to collect in the grommet and this gets formed into ice and the same leaking repeats.---------but at present dont buy water valve.Just keep an eye on this same problem.sometimes leaking will start after few days.In that case also replace water vale.------- Now for other parts, that are extension hose,icemaker tube and clamp.Out of this you will require clamps, sometimes while removing old tube the clamp gets cracked.you can buy this.The extension hose is required if the tube is getting short or actual hose is cracked in between.i dont think you will require extension hose at present.And for ice maker tube.This tube can also be cracked and cause leak.this tubes by time gets bit swollen and loose its grip.Its actually not required.But if you still replace it, that it will be good.--------so you can order clamp and icemaker tube with the grommet part.----------- The parts which you want to order, this is direct link for parts:-- 1. Dual Inlet Water Valve------------ (http://www.partselect.com/PS901314-GE-WR57X10051-Dual-Inlet-Water-Valve.htm)
2. Icemaker Water Line ----------

No water to icemaker, but through the door water is working. Ice maker itself is ok.


This is most likely cause because some part of the ice maker/distribution mechanism is broken. If at all possible, remove everything from the fridge and freezer and allow the freezer to thaw. If that is not possible, you could try and remove just the ice maker to thaw it or try and thaw it while it is still in the freezer. I hope this helps and have a nice day!

After installation icemaker barely nakes any ice and sometimes water may drip out from the bottom of the door where the digital display is


Hi and welcome to FidYa, I am Kelly.

If you would please.. Make sure the rubber fill tube is installed correctly into the ice maker water funnel This sounds like the end of the fill tube is folded over behind the icemaker. (Years of experience and been there done that.)

If this is not the problem and you have water in door, the connections for the ice maker and water in door may be reversed on the water valve solenoids or the plastic hoses are reversed. Test the water in door and see if the water goes into a glass of there is water going into the ice maker when your really want a glass of water.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Ice maker won't work


Your inlet tube that goes to the icemaker may be frozen. To Check: Shut off water supply to Fridge, disconnect the water line that goes to the icemaker at top back. Use a flexible item to insert in the water line connection. I used a zip tie. If the flexible item won't all the through to the ice maker, the line is frozen. Thaw out the tube from inside the freezer with a hair dryer. Re-connect everything, you now have ice . . . Solution #2: You may have to replace your "Water Inlet Valve" located at bottom right rear of Fridge. Easy to do, just follow the color codes, be sure and shut off the water.

Ice maker is not working


The water tube to the icemaker inside the refrig maybe frozen up. Thaw out with your hair dryer. To make sure the tube is clear. Shut of the water to the refrig, disconnect the inlet water line to the icemaker. Insert a flexable through the connector fitting, I used a zip tie. The flexable item should go all the way to the icemaker

Solution #2 Replace the "water inlet valve" at bottom back right of refrig. Easy To Do.

Jenn-Air JCD2389GE side-by-side refrigerator ice maker. Numerous problems since purchased in 2002. The latest is flapper door opening and closing repeatedly at two second intervals and water pouring out...


Getting to the more serious water leak problem, it will be likely caused by one of two problems. the first, more common problem, is the solenoid for the icemaker valve is likely stuck open. sometimes particles in the water will literally prevent the solenoid from closing, like jamming a stone between a piston inside an engine cylinder, causing your water to overfill your icemaker, fill up the bucket, and pour through the flapping door that you also have problems with. the second possible problem, is your icemaker itself has stopped, or to be more precise, the motor has ceased up, and it happened to stop at the point in the icemaker cycle when it calls for water. You can check to see if the valve is the problem, by removing the icemaker entirely from the freezer, its held on by 3 screws, or possibly one screw and two metal or plastic clips, also unplug the icemaker from where it connects electrically. Assuming you have the water to fridge turned off presently, turn the water back on, and see if water comes through the fill tube. If it does, the valve is your problem, I suggest replacing both the primary and secondary valves. 12001892, 61005626 are the two part numbers.
If water is not coming out of the fill tube, take a look at your icemaker. Look at the icemaker as it was when mounted, and inspect the center ejector shaft, it runs down the middle top of the icemaker, and has 11 fingers on it, it is what rotates around to eject cubes. Is it in the "home" position, i .e. the position it sits while water freezes. The home position, when looking at the ice maker in its normal orientation, is when the ejector shaft teeth are pointing at 2:00. If the teeth are in any other position, either the ice maker was disconnected during its cycle, or the motor has stopped. To be certain, with the water remaining off, reconnect the ice maker, pour about 8 oz of water in the ice maker, if after 24 hours there is no ice ejected, then you have a bad ice maker. part # D7824706Q

In regards to your flapper door problem. since the path of water went through the door dispenser,its possible you may need to replace electric panel for dispenser. An inconvenient fix is to unplug the connection for the dispenser, located either at the top, under hinge cover, or at the bottom, after removing toe plate.
