Re: GE PROFILE SIDE BY SIDE water line tube
Sounds like you are talking about the plastic nut that screw onto the water valve. That nut should just pull off. May have to pull kind of hard then just push onto the new line. Is this what you are talking about? Let me know.

There is 2 different place they freeze up inside door water line for cold water dispenser & water feed to ice maker.
for cold water disp. Water line depends on model # will start at bottom of door loop over the disp. control and back down from top of control to cup area to defrost this line best way is to shut down ref and leave door on freezer open can take up to 12 hours.
taking door apart is a major project.
If its your ice maker fill tube easy fix turn water supply off.
on back of ref. there is a water line going up to the top of freezer
this tube will pull out from back the whole fill tube will come out
take to sink thaw with warm water replace tube You may need some caulk to seal area tube meet ref.
Change the supply line to the plastic tube line or copper. Do not use a braided plastic or metal braided line these will make the water taste bad. Changed mine to the plastic line and cured mine, no filters needed.
check ur temperaTure in the freezer make sure it is 5 degrees fahrenheit or lower if it is u might need to see if ur ice maker tray has a crack i it to where when the water goes in to be frozen it runs out a crack and if all this is good check to see when the ice maker fills up its just not running over
It may be turned off. Check the Ice
maker shutoff arm located at the top of the ice bin. Look for the wire
along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat
hanger. If the wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned
off. If so, simply lower the wire.
there water in the ice cube tray? If not check for water to the water
valve. If you have water then it could be either a failed fill valve or
ice maker control module is not activating the water valve.
Check for pinched water supply line (behind the fridge)
you have an inline water filter? If so, when was it changed last? To
test if it is plugged, check for water both before and after the filter
the water inlet tube that directs water into the ice cube tray freezes
over; this can often be thawed out by simply using a hair blow dryer
and warming the area (be careful not to overheat the plastics as they
can warp or crack). Then adjust the freezer to a slightly warmer
setting and make sure water is not constantly dripping from the inlet
tube, as it will only freeze over again.
Ice makers have limit switches, thermal temp sensors, heating element and if anything gits out of order with these parts they will begin to do strange things like that. Now if you would like to remove it and have a look at the internal parts you may find the problem. They are a little easy to loose parts so be careful if that's your choice. A series of about six different cycles happen when they fill until the time it empties and begins again. They may cost less if you don't see what wrong to purchase a new ice maker. If you would like more help feel free to ask, Thanks, Sea Breeze
I had the same problem with mine a month ago. The plastic feed tube to the water solenoid valve was cracked and letting a large portion of the water go under the fridge on the floor. I just cut the cracked tubing off at the valve/fitting area and inserted good tubing into the fitting and tightened it up, it has been perfect since!
