Yes as I stated on other posts, go to an appliance shop and get a threaded connector. Mine cost about $7 and i had to do some minor adjustment cutting to the plastic guard at the bottom of fridge/freezer...so the new piece would not put too much pressure on the line. The white coupling connector on the line u will see has a red and blue washer conected on eitrher side of water line. To disconnect line ..just push in on top of washer and pull line. Cut the torn lines so u at least have a line that is clean and mostly straight, but dont cut TOO MUCH!! just the bare edge, about 1/8 " inch. Use some needle nose pliers ,real small ones.. to pull the line from bottom of door and apply connector. Put lines back on and do faceplate and check for leaks. Good luck!!

Water on door wont dispense


Your water line could be frozen inside the freezer door. Open your freezer door and remove the kick plate on the bottom of the unit. Follow the water line from the door under the unit and it will be clipped under the unit. Pull out the water line and disconnect either line from the coupler (push the water line in and hold the ring then pull out the line). After you do that close the door and try the water again, if you get water then you will need a low wattage heater for the door.

Have a GE hot point HSS25GFTABB, removed doors to put inside house after a move and the ice maker works, but when you fill with water, it runs down the line dripping at the bottom of left door


Inspect the line crefully at the bottom of the door where it connects to the cabinet supply. The line may have been damaged when and if the doors were removed.
HOPEFULLY it is a small nick in the tubing casuing the water leak, and not the line inside the freezer door as the water line is foamed into the door and the entire door would have to be replaced to resolve an internal leak.
The coupler at the door connection is a push-lock syle coupler and to seperate the line you need to press the white collar into the blue barrel connector to relese the tension.
Good luck!

Water running out of tube from fridge into bottom of freezer door that leads up to water dispenser ?


Is the water leaking from the bottom of the freezer door ? ( new door ) line is not replaceable inside the door .
Is the water leaking from the tubing at the connector ( about 6" from the bottom of the freezer door ) ( remove both lines from the connector , cut off about 1" of each tube and reinstall into the connector )
To access , remove the kickplate by either removing 1 screw on each side or just pull off ( held on by clips ) .

I've got a GE side by side refrigerator that's approx.7 years old. This past weekend, I resolved the problem of not getting water out of the cold water dispenser. After replacing the two-way water solenoid...


Check around the door gasket to see if gasket pulls off or is it held on by screws if there are screws you can separate the door and insulate the tube if no screws than replacing the door is the only repair.

Water supply line


If you want to replace just the water line going inside the door, you are out of luck. The water line is foamed in place inside the door and is not replaceable without replacing the entire freezer door. If you want to just remove the door, the water line disconnects by pushing the collar on the insta-push fitting toward the center of the fitting while pulling on the tube, all of which is located behind the toe kick plate near the bottom hinge of the freezer door. The same door is used on the PSS26MRSASS, PSS26MRSCSS, PSS26MRSDSS, and the PSS26MRSESS. It is part # WR78X11742 and runs about $500. (note: even if you don't like what you just read, accurate info on your repair question deserves a "FixYa" rating, not just a "helpful" or "tanks for trying".)
