Question about GE GTS22KBP Top Freezer Refrigerator

The water connection valve at the bottom right back of the refrigerator leaks badly. Water seems to come from the blue plastic cap on the outside of the valve. Where can I get a part to repair this?

    You need to replace the water valve but you'll need the brand and model number to do so .

You need to reseal the connection. You have to turn the water source to frig of at the tap valve. You then have to loosen the connector for the frig the one that has the vinyl line running thru it. You will get some water out because water from the tap and vinyl line might be under a little pressure. Remove the nut and the vinyl tubing. See if it has a little ring over the tubing. If not slide the nut farther back on the tubing and cut tubing below the nut. reattach the nut to the blue valve, but don't over tighten the nut make it finger tight. open the tap valve slowly. The tubing will get pressure. Look at the connection that you just fastened to see if it is leaking. If it is tighten the nut a little more. This should stop the leak(do not over tighten the nut as this will cause the tubing to leak again. If there are no leaks you can open the tap valve all of the way.

Icemaker will not make, cold water works fine, have changed inside filter nd outside filter I added before I knew there was one inside


Refrigerators with both ice and water dispensers have a dual port electric water inlet valve. This inlet valve is the plastic part usually on the back of the refrigerator where the house water supply connects to. This dual valve has 2 electric coils that open to let water in depending on if you want water to a glass or if the icemaker needs to fill with water. Your problem seems to be the half that fills the icemaker may be bad. The valve comes as 1 complete part for both water and ice.

My Amana french door/bottom freezer is leaking water. Did the procedure with hot water the drain in back of the freezer, although it seemed clear of ice. That didn't help. The leaking stops when I...


Two possibilities:
1. A cracked plastic tube. These will leak whenever there's a call for water - either the chilled water dispenser, or re-filling the icemaker tray (two seperate tubes). Pay particular attention to anywhere the tubes are clamped to the chassis; anywhere they're routed near or under the refrigeration unit; and near the solenoid valve - especially if there's a tight loop in the tube there.
2. A bad (leaking) connection where one of the tubes exits the water valve. Again, these will leak whenever the valve is activated.

Those plastic tubes don't last forever. I've replaced many of them for the same symptoms. They're known to simply deteriorate with age.
Manuf's make good money selling replacement tubing kits.

WATER IS LEAKING FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY REFRIGERATOR. THERE IS A LIGHT BLUE VALVE OR SORTS, THAT THE WATER SUPPLY LINE FASTENS TOO, WHAT IS THE NAME OF THIS VALVE?


Good day,
It's called a water valve. If the machine has water in the door, it is called a dual water valve, if there is only an ice maker it is called a single water valve.
Water leaking from the bottom of the machine may or may not be related to this valve. The water could be the valve leaking, the fittings connecting to the supply line as well as the lines connecting to the ice maker or water supply system.
If the leak isn't obvious as to where it is coming from, you will need to prop up either the front or back of the machine and using a flashlight or trouble light and try to trace the source of the leak.

A GE Profile Model, double door refrigerator with a water leak


If the leak is on the refrig water valve where the wall water line connects to , then use a 1/2" wrench and tighten the fitting on the water valve itself . If the leak is on the plastic tubing at the bottom of the refrig water valve , pull up on the small white ring while pushing down on the plastic tube to remove it from the valve . Cut off about 1 " of the tubing and reinsert it into the valve with pretty good pressure to be sure it is inserted completely .

GE Profile Arctica refrigerator - water is leaking from the bottom of the solenoid where the plastic hose goes up to the water filter (on the outside of the refrigerator.


Turn off the water supply and check for cracked or broken water tubing/line. Make certain that there is teflon (white) tape on threads connecting water inlet hose from shut off valve at wall to water valve at refrigerator. If there is no apparent damage to tubing or hose, then your problem may be with a water valve solenoid that is not seating/closing tightly. Replace the water valve assembly, if necessary.

Note: If plastic tubing is damaged, etc., you can splice the tubing with a "coupler" and/or more tubing purchased from Home Depot or Lowe's.

Kenmore bottom freezer refrigerator warming up


Hi
There is a definetely leak in the cooling gas.
Firstly... You will need to find from where the gas has leaked. It is usually on the compressor pipes..... but not always.


Secondly you are right about the Water Valve... it needs to be changed.

Cant seem to get the Icemaker working


Mungah, There is no valve that needs to be turned on. The water travels through the valve into the filter and up to the ice-maker. Try pressing the water lever and stay on it until the water fills the filter and comes out. You should hear the valve energizing. The ice maker cycles every 2.5 hrs. approx. When it calls for water it may take several cycles to prime the line and fill the ice maker...As far as the leak, something is wrong with that compression connection, re-do it and see if it stops...Catriver..post back.
