Water hose too short

We just bought a GE side by side but the water hose is too short to reach the water connection. Also, the connector at the end oof the hose is a "male" end as is the wall connection. What do we do?

There are retail kits for these at home depot , builders square or such to extend and connect these correctly.you might want to get a filter while you are shopping for kit.

    The hoses are clear plastic and shrink wrapped in kit package
    but you can mix and match on the shelf bin items to build your own . and purchase the hose by the foot.
    or you can purchase the copper and fittings if you choose.
    and a filter would be a good addition . not to stress it too much.
    it keeps the sediment and chlorine from eating up your tray mechanism.

GE side by side leaks water from underneath when you use the water from front door


you need to remove the toe kick panel grille below the front doors on the refrigerator behind this grille there is a connector and it can come loose,also possibly the water valve in the lower rear behind the back panel can leak,have a helper press the door paddle for water and check all these areas for leaks,if it leaks from the door stem where the water line goes up the door to the dispenser,then you will need to pull new hose up to the dispenser from the collar mentioned at first,some refrigerators can not have new hose installed due to the door has been foamed internally at the factory and cant be dis-assembled,then you would need a new door with the hose installed

My GE refrigerator dispenses water under the refrigerator


hole in water line, bad couplin, check by bottom hinge on freezer side. take toe panel off so you can check. also check lines and connectors around water valve in back bottom behind refrig. ck lines make sure not too close to compressor. this can shorten life of hoses.

We have a ge side by side refrigerator...while moving it we broke something off the back...it was like a little tube or coil...it was really short..maybe 4 inches...i think it led to the icemaker...i dont...


Possibly the water inlet valve? Look at the water line on the back that goes up the back to the ice maker. The bottom end should be connected to the water inlet valve. This is also where the water supply from the house connects.

A hose is leaking on G.E. fridge - to water dispenser, I think


It sounds like someone has repaired this hose , due to the connectors . There should be no connectors except for 1 , below the freezer door . This hose can get hot from the compressor heat , and break .

My suggestion , would be to replace the water resivoir in the refrig section , behind the bottom crispers . This resevoir has a hose that goes completely to the water valve , without any connectors , and a hose that goes to the coupling under the freezer door , for the water dispensor . If you remove the bottom kick plate , the hose from the door , goes about 8 " to the coupling which connects to the line from the resevoir .

Found a leak behind fridge,plastic hose is seperated


There is no connector . The plastic line pushes into the valve . If enough line is there , remove the short piece from the valve by pushing in on the white ring while pulling out on the broken line , and insert the main line into the valve with a little force . Check for leak by using water dispensor.

After 3 years we have ice but no water from the dispenser


Remove the bottom kickplate and the hose at the bottom of the door goes underneath the refrig about 3 inches , to a hose connector . Push in on the end of the connector and pull out the hose . Close the freezer door and press water . If water comes sprays out from hose under frig , then your door is frozen internally .If no water sprays out of hose , then your watervalve is bad . One coil is for ice and the other is for water but they come togather as one.

Ge side by side is making ice but water dispenser stopped working


check all hose connections and if those are good push your butto for water and see if it humms or clicks.if it humms the water valve might have gone bad or their is not a connection in the hose some where.if you dont hear it click then it is broke behind face.check all components to water side for break or bad switch.

Water line leaking


unscrew the back panel and look if the plastic hose for the water (on the left side, goes to the blue/red valve block) is broken. If it is then you can buy a silicon tube or hose in a hardware store which fits on both ends (measure the diameter) you also need to buy two metal rings with a screw (don't know the name of these) which you can put over the connection to tighten it. The old hose has become very brittle in my case and this solved the issue
