Question about GE Refrigerators

I have a GE refrigerator whose white funnel extension is cracked. Part number is WR49X10075. Can I merely insert the new funnel, or do have to take the ice/water dispenser apart to replace the cracked funnel extension?

Water does not stop pouring from water/ice dispenser. Door-to-door GE Profile Refrigerator Model TFX22PPDACC. How to troubleshoot the problem? Or what part need to be replaced?

With the water running tube/pipe is cracked in between or its got loose from its fitting.First inspect the line for this problem.The tube from which water passes, one end is connected to the water valve at the back base of refrigerator.And then from valve two tube runs.One tube is for water dispenser and another tube is for ice chamber filling.Follow that tube from back of the refrigerator.The water dispenser tube That passes through the freezer door also.And the ice maker tube.That connects to the back of ice maker tray.The water fills in the tray.See if that tube is got loose and its not throwing water out instead of ice maker tray.Many a times this happens.--- May be you need to remove the ice maker to get exact location for tube setting and position.----------- But if tubes from water and ice dispenser sections are fitted properly and then there can be crack in the tube.------------But if tubes checked out ok then other possibility can be faulty water fill grommet.------- The grommet is cracked.And that is causing the leak.--------- Go to the back of the unit and remove the cover at the lower right of the unit. This is where the water line goes into your unit. Remove the water line at the solinoid that goes to your ice maker . This will allow you enough slack to remove the old water fill tube and replace it with the new one.
You need to push the white retainers in to release the tubeing from the solenoids.
------------
The part you need is called fill tube grommet.It has to be removed and replaced.The tube is connected to the grommet. Click this link below for more help:---http://technoanswers.blogspot.com/2011/06/how-to-remove-ice-maker-fill-tube-from.html
------------ The other possibility for this leak, is water valve.The water valve close and open.When its open, it lets water to the tube.When it closes it stops water.But if the valve is not closing then it will let the water to enter non stop, slowly --- slowly the inside tube getw over filled and then starts leaking.------------ The water valve is not required as per the problem.But if after doing all the repairing, still the same problem, noticed then water valve is required.Because is water valve is not closing properly, then it leaks some water, (drop by drop) and this can cause water to collect in the grommet and this gets formed into ice and the same leaking repeats.---------but at present dont buy water valve.Just keep an eye on this same problem.sometimes leaking will start after few days.In that case also replace water vale.------- Now for other parts, that are extension hose,icemaker tube and clamp.Out of this you will require clamps, sometimes while removing old tube the clamp gets cracked.you can buy this.The extension hose is required if the tube is getting short or actual hose is cracked in between.i dont think you will require extension hose at present.And for ice maker tube.This tube can also be cracked and cause leak.this tubes by time gets bit swollen and loose its grip.Its actually not required.But if you still replace it, that it will be good.--------so you can order clamp and icemaker tube with the grommet part.----------- The parts which you want to order, this is direct link for parts:-- 1. Dual Inlet Water Valve------------ (http://www.partselect.com/PS901314-GE-WR57X10051-Dual-Inlet-Water-Valve.htm)
2. Icemaker Water Line ----------

How do i replace ps 652226 ice funnel ge ziss480drbs

carefully removed the trim from around the dispenser area by gently prying the trim off careful not to brake it. then freed the catches in the top of the electronic card. I leaned the card forward and disconnected the electrical connections, then removed the card. I removed the four screws holding the shield to the door and removed the shield. Then I removed the funnel from the shield and removed the spring from the old funnel and placed it on the new one. I removed the light and socket from the old shield and installed the in the new one, then installed the new funnel on the new shield, used the four screws to install the assembly on the door and replaced the trim piece. Here's a DIAGRAM to help.

I just bought a new GE refrigerator and it was laying down for approximately 30 minutes during transport. Please let me know how long I need to leave it standing upright before I turn it on.

Hi,
Here is a tip that I wrote on moving refrigerators...if you did not do it thisway then you may well have ruined a perfectly good refrigerator.

Moving a Refrigerator What is the best way

If you already have moved it wrong, you can sometimes get it working byplugging it in and unplugging it a number of times with an hour or so inbetween.

The bottom shelf on our freezer is cracked from the back for about 2 inches. Can we use the freezer? The freezer is a top freezer on our GE profile refrigerator.

Drill a hole , at each end of the crack , to keep it from extending , then fill the crack ( and holes ) , with a white silicon caulk . Yes , you can use the freezer .

Water tube extension

it sounds like the water inlet valve is bad. if it slowly leaks it will cause the water to freeze inside the inlet tube extension blocking water from entering the icemaker and it could leak around the extension tube. after freezing solid the tube may have a crack in it as well. so replace the water valve and take out the inlet tube and extension tube and inspect it for cracks and make sure they mate properly (you can glue them if you want but it might make it harder to clean out if you have the same problem again). a clamp or tie strap may help.
