The water is not coming out of the dispenser. I have a small pin hole in the water line where the line makes the turn to go up the door. I can disconnect the water line in the front before it goes up the door and press the paddle and I have a steady stream of water. How can I replace the water line from there. Can you remove the water and Ice dispenser out of the door? I took off the stainless steel outside cover but I can't see how it comes out and I don't know if I can replace the water line even if I get it out. Can you help me? Thanks, Russ

Re: GE Refrigerator Model GSH 25S GPA SS
That would really be a big job. what i can suggest is for you to fix the pinhole of the hose by applying a good quality glue or epoxy that would held water pressure. once this is done, you can be sure that water would go up all the way to the dispenser without leaking in the front of the freezer.
if water is still not coming up, you could just have a frozen water line, maybe because it has not been use for a while. just unplug the ref for about a day, open the door and make sure that all ice would thaw in the freezer section then plug it back and test it.

Do you hear a slight buzzing when you try to get water?? If yes, you may have a frozen water line inside the freezer door. GE had some problems with those models. They offer a heater kit that has to be installed in the dispenser area of the freezer door. Once installed, in about a day the water line should be defrosted enough to dispense water again. If you don't hear that buzzing sound when trying to get water, you could have a bad inlet valve which is at the lower back of the refrigerator where your house water line hook to the refrigerator.
Remove the incoming water line, (the one coming from your house), from the refrigerator. Check to see if there is a screen where the water line attaches, it may be blocked with debris from your house water line.
I have a GSH25JSRFSS GE refrigerator. Twice, the water line has frozen near the dispenser. Each time I used a hairdryer to heat either the side of the door where the water line runs and blew hot air up the dispenser. This last time, I took the plastic cover off the outside of the door (it clips on) and blew hot air into the small holes in the door that the outside grate clips into. This allows the hot air to get inside the door, and I heard ice from the frozen line drop. Subsequently, the water line worked. Two points: I did have water running to the line in the bottom of the refrigerator, so I knew it was an ice clog, and secondly, I took care not to blow hot air on the exposed wires inside the door.GKAZ
you may have a pin hole in your water line to your dispenser or you could be leaking at the water valve itself on the water dispenser side. you'll have to pull the refrigerator out from the wall and look where the main water line goes into the back of the refrigerator. you will probably have to take the back off to see. be sure you put the back of the refrigerator back when you are through.
hole in water line, bad couplin, check by bottom hinge on freezer side. take toe panel off so you can check. also check lines and connectors around water valve in back bottom behind refrig. ck lines make sure not too close to compressor. this can shorten life of hoses.
It is possible the water line inside the freezer door froze . Remove the bottom kick plate and follow the white tubing about 6" to a coupling . Push in on the white ring and at the same time , pullout on the tubing . Push the water dispensor , and if water comes out of the hose going under the fridge , this means the line is frozen in the door . If no water comes out , it means the water tank at the bottom of the fridge section (behind crispers ) is probably frozen . A hair dryer should work on the tank , but , a different procedure will be needed to thaw the door . Come back if door is frozen for the procedure .
First place to start is in the fridge. Look behind the crisper drawers for the water tank. It may have frozen at the outlet line. Try thawing it out with a hair dryer or a heat gun, being careful of course not to melt anything.
