Hi;
you would have to remove the door(and front kick panel) turn water & power supply off first. Unclip water lines and electrical connector on top of fridge. You will require food grade water pipe 6-8mm, this will slide thru the hole, have patients when doing this

Hose from under frezeer door to water dispenser broken. CAn't find part number for this hose. How do you get the hose the new hose in. Does dispenser come out the front.


That could prove to be difficult. The doors are usually filled with polyurethane foam. And you may need to remove the inner liner to see if you can gain access to the tube. It is rar that the door dispenser will come out because of that foam. You can try. This hose is usually just a length of 5/16 plastic water hose available at a hardware store.

The water supply hose where it enters the door at the bottom has cracked and broken how do we replace the hose in the door


The line going into the dispenser is a 5/16 line. You'll have to remove the front of the dispenser on the door to get access to the line to unclip it. Once you have that done you can pull the line out from the bottom. At this point there are a variety of different unions, compression fittings, etc. to splice the line. After that you just feed the line back through the bottom of the door, clip it back in place, put the dispenser back together and your done.

I am trying to replace the water dispenser hose. The hose sold to me is 1/4 inch. The hose on the refridgerator is larger/ The 1/4 inch does not fit


You are correct.Your looking for a 5/16. Some models have them that have the water and ice in the door but the 5/16 normaly goes to the water in the door rather than the ice maker. You will also have trouble finding the compression fitting unless you get it through a appliance place or auto parts place.

Kenmore 57033 Water Dispenser Broken


I had a similar problem on a frigidaire side by side. I think the water line may be freezing. My solution was to remove the filter inside the refridgerator and drain it and reinstall. This causes the water to flow into the filter and eliminates any ice in the tubing. I have not had the problem in a while. While not a true fix, it may help narrow it down.
Later on, I eventually replaced the microswitch on the door dispenser for an intermittent dispenser problem.

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.

Most side-by-sides have a length of hose at the bottom of the freezer that send the water to the ice maker and water dispenser. take the back off so you can see this hose, there may be a kink in it, or a clog.
