How do you turn off the water line to the refridgerator? Is there a shut off on the fridge somewhere? Our water is going to be shut off on tuesday for work in the area and then will be back on with a boil water advisory. we don't want cubes to made with this water or have it contaminate the water in the fridge.

There is not a shut off valve on the refrigerator for water supply, but you should have a valve on the water supply line behind the refrigerator or at the water supply line where it taps into the main waterline, I would shut it off and then when the water supply is returned to service, I would disconnect the water line from the back of the refer and purge the water line for about a minute or two into a bucket or equivalant, just to make sure all sediment and other foreign stuff doesn't contaminate your refer.
Good Luck !

Saddle valve on water line to refridgerator won't shut water off

If you can not shut the valve off then most likely it has calcium build up in it. I would recommend shutting off the water supply at the angle stop. Then removing the saddle valve and see what is going on. If it is built up with calcium you may be able to clean it depending on how shot it is. If you are unable to clean it then a new one is not that expensive and they are easy enough to replace

Yes there is a shut off valve located usually under the sink or where ever it is getting its water supply, there is also the angle stops that you shut off that keeps water from going into the lines. check both of those, if there is still a issue, then it is something to do with the fridge. Something has got knocked loose and will need to be fixed

How to replace an icemaker hose

Turn water off from the supply. There should be a valve that the 1/4" water line connects to, if not you will have to shut off the water main. Using a wrench remove the nut from the water line connection (usually a compression fitting. You will need a need compression sleeve with the new line x2, one for the valve and one for the fridge. Next disconnect the line from the back of the fridge. Run the new line the same way the old one was run, for easiness. Make sure you leave enough slack behind the refridgerator to allow it to be pulled out and cleaned behind. Once all connections are tight you can turn the water back on and ensure you don't have any leaks. Hope this helps.

Ge refridgerator model gsl25jfpe bs

I have a gsl25jfpe bs ge regrigerator and the baffle motor that controls air flow from the freezer to the refrigerator is out. This had been causing everthing in the fridge to freeze and cause the water to stop working due to water freezing in the storage tank. The baffle is in the back top of the fridge covered with a plastic cover. Remove plastic cover to check baffle function.
