How to install water tank on GE side x side. I have the new tank to install. Need diagram of connections.


Hello.
I do not believe any diagrams exist on the web for such diagrams. Basically the way it goes is as such
The tank has a long line and a shorter line
the shorter line connects to the water valve on the back of the refrig.
the longer line runs underneith and connects to the connector behind the freezer door lower hinge cover or that area by the lower freezer door hinge. depending on age of refrig. that fitting the tubes connect to unscrew or on newer models the collar on the inner part of the connecter is push in while pulling out tube to remove old tube

How to reassemble ice dispenser parts od kenmore model 106.5706*602


Clean out the new ice maker with warm soapy water.

Ensure that the floor surface under your refrigerator is level. If the floor surface under your refrigerator isn't level, you can place shims under the legs of the refrigerator to fix the uneven surface.

Turn off the main water supply to your house.

Clear the water line by running the faucets until the pipe clears.

Screw the copper supply line's connector to the house's cold water connector valve. Use an adjustable wrench to tighten the connection.

Slide the compression sleeve and nut onto the other end of the copper supply line. The compression sleeve and nut will wrap around the outside of the copper supply line.

Bend the copper supply line to fit into the water line inlet casing located on the back of the refrigerator. Leave slack in the line so that the refrigerator can be pulled away from the wall or cabinets. The water line inlet casing is a plastic bracket used to hold the copper supply line in place so that there is no pull on the tubing's connection. It is the larger of the two plastic brackets located on the back of the refrigerator.

Insert the compression sleeve located around the end of the copper supply line into the ice maker connector. The ice maker connector is already installed on the back of the Maytag refrigerator.

Tighten the nut over the connection between the compression sleeve on the copper supply line and the ice maker connector with an adjustable wrench.

Attach the water supply tube clamp to the water supply line by clipping it into place. The water supply tube clamp is a plastic bracket located on the back of the refrigerator that holds the supply tube so that it doesn't rattle and become disconnected. It is the smaller of the two brackets located on the back of the refrigerator.

Turn on the main water supply.

Check all connections for leaks.

Position the drain hose located on the back of the ice maker over your floor drain. Use a PVC pipe if you need to redirect the drain hose flow so that it falls over the floor drain. The PVC pipe should not touch the drain hose and should have no low point where the water can settle.

Plug the ice maker into a 3-prong grounded outlet.

There is water building up inside of the freezer at the bottom and freezing. Some of it leaked out the front onto the floor. The water hoses are all intact and well connected. The refrigerator fan comes on...


Clean the drain tray and drain line in the back of the freezer section, located behind the back cover and underneath the evaporator coil. (hint: use turkey baster with hot water) Make sure water drains when you pour it in. If it doesn't - also clean drain tube on the back of the unit behind the cover. When done - make sure to put the tube exactly where it was.
Good luck! :)

I need to install a new fitting (part # 2196157). That is the fill tube on the ice maker on our whirlpool refrigerator (model number ed2fhgxkt00) The water line is already detached since the threaded part...


Yes that s it. You may have to tug a little to get the old one out as sometimes the foam will try to hold them in a little tight.

One thing to check before you connect your water line. Take a look at the end of the water line for a minute make sure that no water is going to drip out of it. If it does you may as well replace the valve because that is going to plug the tube with ice and possibly damage the ice maker.

Reconnect your water line and flip the ice maker on and the water should start to flow shortly. That s it.

Thanks for asking.

Ge side by side refrigerator/freezer. Water flow is very slow from water dispenser. I have changed the water filter but water flow is still very slow. What might the problem be?


Could be low water pressure coming into the refrigerator or some kind of partial blockage in the water tubing within the refrigerator. I would first check at the on-off valve that connects the house water to the refrigerator tubing. Turn off the valve, disconnect it from the refrigerator line, hold the valve over a bucket, and open the valve. Does the water flow look good? The openings in these valves are very small and are easily stopped up with mineral deposits.

If the water flow is good at the valve, the problem is somewhere within the refrigerator tubing. I have found that plastic weedeater line is good for opening up blockages in these lines.

Icetube leaking water inside freezer and outside back of freezer


Your refrigerator needs a new water valve and possibly some new water tubing. You can find the correct part by going to sears.com and entering the refrigerator's model number in the parts search field. When you have the valve, shut off the water to the refrigerator. If you're not sure how to do that, just shut off water to the entire house. Be sure to run the kitchen sink after you shut the water off to relieve any presure and double check that the water is completely shut off.

Be sure to unplug the refrigerator before you start this project...water and electricity aren't friends! Using a 1/4" nut driver or socket, remove the cardboard or metal cover off the back of the refrigerator. Follow the water line to the water valve, unscrew the nut going to the valve, and remove the water line. There are 2 screws holding the water valve to the refrigerator cabinet; remove the screws and gently pull the valve out. Unplug the electrical connectors and remove the water lines. Take the new valve, connect the water lines and electrical plugs, screw the valve back into place, attach the water line and turn the water back to to test for leaks.

Since the valve has been leaking inside your freezer it would be a great idea to clean out your freezer and let the water tube and lines thaw. Find a place for your frozen food, unplug the unit and let it sit overnight with the doors open. Don't forget to remove the ice bin, as these make quite the mess when the ice melts. Once it's thawed, plug it back in, make sure the water is on and not leaking and enjoy!

Water spout replacement


this is a surprisingly easy repair that you can do in about 30 minutes.
  • first remove dispenser cover: there are 2 slots on the very bottom of the cover insert flat tip screwdriver and carefully pry it off. then you should be able to disconnect a wiring harness and lay the cover to the side.
  • next move switch console out of your way: you will either have 2 screws or 2 thumb latches on either side. you may need someone to hold this out of your way for the following steps.
  • we need to disconnect the incoming water line down at the bottom hinge: remove kickplate and find the water line you should find a connector. while pushing the tube into the connect push down on the collar then pull the tube out of the connector.( you will most likely get a little bit of water when the tube pulls loose.
  • back at the dispenser: find where the tube comes out and remove any retaining screws, then gently pull the entire tube up and out of the door.
  • now do everything in reverse to finish up: the tube will push abck thru. when you get back to the hinge the tube may hange up I use a very small screw driver to line the tube up to come back thru the hinge. 
  • whne you reconnect the tube at the grille make sure that the tubing seats all the way to prevent any leakage
Be surre and be safe by unpluggin the unit before you perf any type of repair water and electricity dont mix. good luck Peyton
