First find where the water is comming from
if its fdrom the ice machine in back simply find the line and follow it there will be a shut off where it connects to your water line
or is the drain tube in the back by the compressor out of position

Mine leaked because the plastic tubing which leads onto your cold water pipes was old and cracked. There is a shut off for the water mine is in the basement off the cold water line if you shut that off till you can go buy a new line at home depot or wherever it will stop leaking. DO NOT shut off your water supply just look for where they tapped into the cold waterline for your fridge. Look at the back of your fridge and you will see a clear tubing from your fridge probably leading to your basement you will see the same tubing coming probably thru the ceramic floor thru to the basement leading to a valve if you shut that off till you can replace the tube it will stop just don't take the copper tap off because it has been screwed in there and made a hole in the piping to feed into your fridge. The piece is about $10.00 at home depot or lowes, a plumber is about $150.00 It is easy to do. Tell them you need a new assembly for your fridge, If this is an ice maker fridge as I suppose it is. If not pull out the fridge and see if you see a clear tubing

Water continually drips from the freezer door water dispenser. it will stop if I shut off the water supply.Refrigerator is a 12 yr. old GE side by side


The lever you push for water does nothing mechanically to open any water valve. All it does is activate a solenoid coil on the water valve. The water valve itself is dripping like a faucet and needs to be replaced. To replace the valve shut off the water supply and disconnect the water line from the valve. Install the new one. Nothing to it.

Ge profile refrigerator slow water dispenser


you have a seperate valve for ice maker and water dispenser, though it is possible both could have debris preventing proper water flow, i would check the water pressure you have going into the valve solenoid housing. turn off water to fridge, disconnect the line at the fridge, not in basement at saddle valve. place end of tube in bucket, turn on water. how is pressure? good or slow? if its good, then you probably do need to replace valve solenoid housing. You can NOT clear debris out of these, they must be replaced.
If your water pressure is still not good, either y ou have a kink in plastic water line. Despite having changed saddle valve in basement, if the stem of saddle valve is mounted on bottom half of pipe, debris from pipe is getting into water line and so on.

I need to know where the water shut-off valve is located on a Roper Refrigerator w/ice-maker.


The frig has no shut-off valve. It is usually in the basement or crawl space below the frig.

Water leaking from ice maker GE model# TFH22PRS


Hi

Please check to make sure the water tubes are attached properly and are fastened tightly.

First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.

Please revert for further assistance and Do rate the solution as "FixYa" if found useful.

Thanks
Rylee
