Question about Refrigerators
I keep having a problem with my GE Side by Side Refrigerator model GSS25IFPH BB where the water line to the water dispenser in the door keeps freezing. I end up having to use a hair dryer and heat the line that coils up inside the refrigerator where the water is cooled and also along the outside of the unit where the line runs into the freezer door to get it to thaw out and work again. What can be done to prevent this in the future?

Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if
there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not
defrosting as it should.

Check the pin that holds the flapper in place.
I'll bet the plastic is broke that holds spring and flap inplace
I have same problem

Your drain tube may
be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's
stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor.
It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little
pressure with a turkey baster will
usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help. Make
sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be
located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.
Take a bare copper wire and wrap it around a fin near the heater and put the other end a few inches down the drain. The heat convection may prevent it from freezing.

GO TO THE FREEZER PORTION OF THE FRIG.YOU NEED TO TAKE THE ICEMAKER OUT AND REMOVE THE BACK PANEL WHERE THE EVAPORATER FAN IS .RIGHT UNDER THE COIL YOU WILL SEE A DRAIN ,WHEN YOUR FREEZER GOES ON DEFROST THE WATER GOES DOWN THE DRAIN AND INTO A PAN THAT SITS ON TOP OF THE COMPRESSOR.THE HEAT FROM THE COMPRESSOR EVAPORATES THE WATER.THE DRAIN IN THE FREEZER IS PROBABLY CLOGGED OR FROZEN OVER WITH ICE AND THATS WHY THE WATER IS GOING ELSEWARE.REMOVE ALL THE ICE FROM AROUND THE DRAIN.IF THERES A ROD THAT GOES DOWN THE DRAIN FROM THE DEFROST ELEMENT THATS SUPPOSED TO KEEP THE DRAIN FROM ICING UP ,IN ANY CASE THE DRAIN IS CLOGGED OR ICED UP.UNCLOG THE GRAIN AND YOU WILL BE GOOD TO GO.
