(Not sure of your exact/specific model)
Do you mean the water bladder behind the 2nd vegie bin ?
If so, & I presume you mean it has split, the only options are replacement, or bypass it by cutting the hoses & using an 8mm press-fit joiner coupling. Bypassing would mean you Won't get chilled water from the dispenser.
There is a coil replacement option (long length of tube, coiled up), instead of the molded bladder (which tends to split if they get too cold & freeze).
They tell you that with the coil the water "isn't quite as cold as a bladder", but this doesn't make the slightest difference to most people.

Why is there water dripping from the bottom of the water/ice dispenser


The solenoid valve that controls the water dispenser is leaking internally. It will be a double valve (one for ice, the other for chilled water) located at the bottom of the frame in the back of the unit. To find it, just trace where the plastic tubes originate from.

Easy to replace.

These leaks are sometimes caused by particles getting trapped on the valve seat. This can be prevented by use of an inline water filter on the copper supply line.

Why my refrigerator is leaking water from the top where the water filter is located?


Shut off water supply valve. Relieve water pressure by dispensing water. Unscrew water filter. Examine to see if the gasket is damaged or if filter was loose and just needed tightening. Or simply replace water filter with the correct water filter that your GE refrigerator calls for.

Water is leaking from bottom of frig, supply line is fine. Its seems to be comming from the front end of frig


Check the drains. It may have been clogged by particles from the food accumulated over time. It may also be from the ice that may have accumulated inside, at the panel at the back.

GE Side By Side Ice Machine & Water dispenser not getting water


you may have a pin hole in your water line to your dispenser or you could be leaking at the water valve itself on the water dispenser side. you'll have to pull the refrigerator out from the wall and look where the main water line goes into the back of the refrigerator. you will probably have to take the back off to see. be sure you put the back of the refrigerator back when you are through.

Check your ice maker lines that run in front at the bottom of your frig. You just might have a small leak in the line.It's located behind the grill in front of the frig.

GE Profile water filter housing leaks


Hi there is a grommet you can replace.
#WR02X10678 it is about $7.00 It can help seal the plug sometimes. Ge does want you to buy the whole filter assembly it is number
#WR17X11618 $51.50 . You may also consider putting a new filter in. It seals better than the plug it is number
#gwf $42.95. I dont know why they dont sell a o-ring kit. I guess they just dont make much money on o-rings. I hope this will help you. Have a nice day.

Ge water filter cracks


The issue is with length of the filter and the space behind the filter allowing it to bend.

Along with many people we put a lot of things in our frig. When you jam things into your frig they can hit the filter causing it to bend towards the back of the frig. The long filter becomes a lever putting extra force on the plastic threads on the filter causing them to crack and leak.

Luckly we noticed our leak early and did not have a big leak into the floor below. But when I was removing items from the frig to get to the filter we had just bought two big gallons of milk and one was jammed into the filter.

You can try to remember to not put to much on that side, but within a month you will for get. Best thing to do until GE comes up with a better filter is to tape a wedge to the filter that fills the space between the filter and the back of the frig. That way if you jam a big gallon milk into the filter it will not bend and crack.
