Need install instructions to replace water tank

I have a GE side by side (model PSC23NGMD) and was told during a recent GE service call to replace the water tank. I ordered one but would like to have the instructions before starting the replacement.
The current water tank has been frozen and is cracked. We have had nothing but problems with the water dispensing; ice maker works great.
please point me to the online instructions... thank you.

    I have the same problem, my water tank was cracked and i replace it. all you need to do is first shut of the water valve. then open the front panel by unscrewing it. you'll see there is a pipe running toward back of the refrez. you'll also see there is a connector between two pipes. unscrew it by pushing that white tab and pulling the pipe back. go back of the frez. and you'll see two pipes running down from the frez. one is going in front of the frez and another connecting to the little pump. unhook that by pussing the white tab and pulling the tube. push both of the tubes back into the frez and pull them out. Pull the wind deflactor that is attached to the tank by pulling it up, it should snap off. unscrew the tank and screw the new one in. make sure the longer tube goes in the front and the little one goes in the back. to connect the tube just firmly put it into the connector.

    Problem: by replacing the water tank is not the solution, the problem is that the pipe that runs to the water dispancer getting frozen. you have to open the door and insulate the pipe so it does not get frozen. I don't know how to do that so i'm still searching. hope this helps.

How do you fix the water dispenser on a GE side by side refrigerator model GSS201EPD WW

Here are a couple of possible problems. Most common one is a defective water inlet valve. It is the plastic assembly at the lower back area where the house water connects to. On dispenser systems it is actually 2 valves in one unit---half lets water in to icemaker---the other half lets water dispense at door. It is electrically operated so if half goes bad , the other half can still work. If bad it needs replaced as a complete unit.
Second possible problem with some GE side by side models is they had problems with the water line in the door going to the dispenser sometime would freeze up. They came out with a heater kit that needs installed in the dispenser area to defrost the water line. Call GE service with your model number and they may be able to tell you if you need that kit installed.

Water tank leaks

Turn the water off, find the leak and the model number of your refrigerator. Use the model number to search for a replacement water tank or water coil depending on what your model uses. If the water control valve does not leak you can turn the water back on until the water tank is replaced if the wires going to the water dispenser are disconnected. Just prepare for some water to spill once you begin removal of the water tank. This will allow ice to be made without causing water to pour out onto your floor while you wait for parts. It is really important to have the model number because without it the parts department will not be able to find one without it and internet parts view is not possible without the model number found around the fresh food section door frame. Have you located where the leak is? Is it something other that the water tank causing the leaking water?
There are many types of GE Monograms and different part numbers for different models. Can you post the model; number here on Fixya? Let me know if I can help you and I will be glad to give you the part number. Or click here and enter your model number=> Point and Click Appliance Repair I'm here if you need me, Thanks Sea Breeze

Water line keeps freezing on my GE side by side refigerator

Check to see if the water tank in the bottom of the refrigerator section is frozen. If it is, you will need to turn the refrigerator section temp down.

Pushing the pin you see back down opens the safety baffle and turns your smartshield heater into any old heater (that is, no smartshield). If you want, find a way to hold that pin down (remember it gets hot in there), put it all back together, and get on with your life.

Water dispenser not working but ice maker does

The water line freezes inside the freezer door. There is now an add-on water line heater you can install to thaw the line.
