Question about GE 21.7 Cu. Ft. Top-Mount Refrigerator with Internal Water Dispenser - Stainless-Steel

1 Answer

In stalling the main water line from my home to the fridge

The instruction that is in the manual does not support the hookup that is behind the refrigerator. There is no where to hoop anything to. I have the top freezer Model gts18shsprss stainless steel.

    I think that compression that you are talking about has the water fliter hose hook up there.

Generally the connection to the refrigerator ice maker from the home water system is in back of the refrigerator in the lower right corner. There is a one quarter inch compression type fitting where the water is connected.

How do I hook up the plumbing. Do you have an exploded diagram of the back panel where all the water hook ups are at.


It depends on the refridgerator. Some have two inlet valves. Basically, you have a water line from the home. Usually copper line. You also will have two places for water lines on the opposite side of the inlet valve. Sometimes you may only have one. The line leading from fridge ( if ice and water through door) will hookup to the line where you have the fridge connactor. The quick connects to the inlet valve. The second one will be for ice maker. That water line runs up the back of fridge into freezer. Make sure you place the quick connects in the right spot. Process of elimination because some inlet valves wont let you change the hoses once installed. Connect the main water line from the home. Connect both quick connects dont connect water lines yet. Push the water thru the door botton and see which valve opens on the inlet. Which valve on inlet opened and allowed water to come out. That is for fridge and other is for icemaker.

If you need further assistance please feel free to contact.

The refrigerator water dispenser started running without pushing the device. It won't stop unless the freezer door is open. We were just sitting in the family room and all of a sudden the dispenser...


Pull the fridge out and look behind it. You're looking for the water line that could possibly have valve shutoff. If not, follow the line back to the source. Could be tapped under the sink, could go anywhere. You are attempting to shut off water to the fridge without shutting water off to entire home. Worst case scenario is if you can't locate the fridge shutoff and you can't get it fixed today and you don't want to leave the freezer door open, locate the main water shutoff for the house and shut it off over night. Hope this helps.

How do i turn off the water supply to the fridge if its pipe is leaking?


There should be a small valve behind the fridge. Pull it out from the wall, and look behind it with a flashlight. They are usually near the floor at the wall. Turn clockwise to close it. In older homes, the water line can be run under cabinets to under the kitchen sink where water pipes are..

Old installations use 1/4 inch copper tubing. Newer ones use 1/4 inch nylon. Some use flexible white hoses.

If you close the valve and it still drips, then the entire water system will have to be closed off to replace the valve. These valves and new connection kits are available at sears, home depot and lowes.

I just received my new Whirlpool side-by-side refrigerator with in door water and ice dispensers. How do I connect the water to the refrigerator?


Connects at back of fridge. bottom left corner you will see a compression fitting, you need to connect to house hookup. If you had it delivered they should have hooked it up for you, unless you don't have a house hookup behind fridge. Then in this case you would need a plumber to run water to fridge. Or you can buy a kit at lowes or homedepot and do it yourself.

How do I replace the water line in the door?


Hello,

Find your route to the water line. Drill a hole in the floor behind the refrigerator and thread the copper tubing into the basement. Go to the basement and find the main water line and pull the copper tubing to it.

Step 2
Attach pipe to refrigerator. Go back up to the kitchen and attach the end of the copper tubing to the water pipe of the refrigerator. You can use a nut and ferrule to connect the tube to the fridge. Make sure to leave a little bit of copper tubing coiled behind the fridge so as to not disconnect the tubing when moving the fridge.

Step 3
Turn off the water. With the fridge all hooked up, go back to the basement and turn off the water. Find the cold water pipe and drill a 1/4-inch hole to accommodate the copper tubing.

Step 4
Attach valve to pipe. You need to attach the water valve to the main pipe. This allows you to control the flow of water to the refrigerator. Make sure you have a gasket to seal between the valve and main water pipe.

Step 5
Connect the copper tubing. With the valve connected to the main water pipe, connect the copper tubing using a clamp. This should be everything you need. Turn on the main water and you should be able to get a glass of water, but it will take an hour or two for the ice cubes to freeze.

Take care..

Can not locate the water line connector on the fridge.


It would appear that the water line can be located on the bottom right side of the fridge, on the back, while viewed from the back. It should be a plastic line. Here is a link to the owners manual, you can find the instructions on page 14. Hope this helps.

I heard a dripping sound and discovered it was coming from the back of the freezer. I also noticed the infrared receiver light is flashing red...what's up?


The common thing is the water line hook up to the back of the frige. First find the shut off. It is usually under the sink or behind the fridge. Roll the fridge out slowly so as not to damage line further. Also roll it straight as not to damage floor. Once u turn off the water line listen to make sure the water drip has stopped if it stops thats the problem. The line is very easy and simple to change yourself. You can get the plastic ones or copper one at the home centers.
moz-screenshot-1.jpgThe water shut off can look like this behind fridge....

How do i use the ice maker


Most icemaker models come with a line that you have to attach to a water line before you can use the icemaker or the water dispenser. You usually will have to add some line to the original (and I also recommend a line filter) to reach a spot under the sink where you join the line into the main water later (remember to make sure you plumb into the COLD water line.)

There are sometimes lines placed near where the refrigerator has to be in a kitchen in newer homes to take advantage of the icemaker features, so look behind the fridge to make sure if there is or is not a line back there to hook into.

Hope you find this of use.

Kitchenaid fridge (ksrw25crss02)icemaker slowly stopped working, decreasing in the amount of ice it made until finally no ice at all. also, water trickles from water dispencer.


hi kev215,
welcome to fixya.com.

Huuum at your service.

You said, the ice maker slowly stopped working, decreasing in the amount of ice it made until finally no ice at all. also, water trickles from water dispenser.

The first thing I would ask is when did you last change your water filter in the fridge?
Or if it's an older fridge with an inline filter behind the fridge!
check the shut off valve for the water line that leads to you ice maker. under the sink or in the basement or where ever the line comes from. I've seen where someone turned the valve a little clockwise unbeknown to the home owner and stopped or slowed the water flow.

The water line should be checked too, for any kinking that may be running behind the fridge or some unseen place!

How old is the fridge??

Let me know,
Thank you Huuum
