Something leaking from dispenser frame

I have a GE side by side fridge.  Yesterday something started leaking from the bottom of the frame that goes around the dispenser unit in the door.  It is a light yellow liquid, not sure if it is dirty water or something else.  The water and ice dispensers are working fine.  There is a little notch at the bottom left corner of the frame around the whole dispenser unit on the front of the door, and that is where the leak is.  Model GSH22KGRE.

Re: Something leaking from dispenser frame

The yellow/orangeish liquid is probably rust in water. Your dispenser might be leaking or filling up the tray. There's a space between the tray and the door that, when the tray is filled, leaks water into the door. The water sits, rusts the door metal a bit (or something else builds up), and drips through the holes that the frame pops into.

I'm trying to figure out why I'm dripping currently . . . annoying.

Re: Something leaking from dispenser frame

You can remove the frame around the dispenser by pulling it gently and then you access to the screws that hold the dispenser in place. Could be a spillage behind the frame. Good Luck.

Why is my GE (ZFSB23D SS) side by side refrigerator leaking at the back corner, near the rear wheel where the plastic water line goes in?

If the tubing is plastic it could have cracked when you moved the tubing to install the filter. If the tubing is OK then possinly the filter isn't all the way in or is leaking.

Water line for ice maker/cold water leaking underneath

Check your connection at the bottom of the freezer door, behind the kick plate. Also pull out your crisper drawers and check the cold water reservior. If this only leaks when the water dispenser is pressed I would try to track the line from the bottom of the freezer door back to where it goes into the refrigerator (behind the crispers) to the cold water reservior.
If you absolutely have to lay this fridge down lay it on it's BACK only. Also be sure to let it stand upright for at least a half an hour before you start it back up.
Good luck with this!!

GE GSS22JFMC when I press the water button it leaks

That's where the water line runs to get to the dispenser. You may have to remove the cardboard backing to see it. The line runs from the water inlet valve. That's where the supply line from the house connects to the fridge. One line goes up to the ice maker and the other goes over to the fridge side where it goes inside the fridge behind the crisper to a reservoir where the water is chilled before it goes to the dispenser. Look for the water coming out when someone else tries the dispenser. Look for a fitting that has come loose.

Leak from bottom of fridge

Two things might be happening. One is the line to the fridge is leaking, this line come thru the floor or wall to the bottom and hooks up to a water valve, it may just need tightening. The other problem is you will have a hose that runs from the filter down in behind the crisper drawers to the bottom and coils up here to hold water for cold use. it then runs thru the bottom pan out to the front, to the bottom door hinge on the freezer side up the door to the dispencer. Check along the hose for a pin hole look at the bottom hinge area first, things bump into it here and can damage the plastic cover.
