Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator
The water line is leaking from the top of the refrigerator where the water goes into the ice maker (black hose). It spurts out when the water is refilling the ice tray. When it is not refilling, it does not leak
Should have a small metel clamp there if not you can get a small clamp about any where and the fill tube being partialy frozen can be an issue the easiest way ive found to deal with this is to get a eureka 301 hand held enviro steamer its a little investment but there are about 1000 outher uses for it around the house and it wont hurt the fridge just let it heat stick the tip in the in the ice maker fill tube where the water line goes and pull the trigger till steam comes out the other end bingo does windows sinks stoves etc.thaws evaprators clears frozen drains seal door gaskets without melting them getting this master tech http://www.overstock.com/Home-Garden/Eureka-350-Hot-Shot-Enviro-Steamer/371207/product.html?fp=F&kid=4087&cid=52417

There are 2 reasons for the water over flow during fill cycle of ice maker and is problematic more so with side by side refridgerators. the fill tube has some ice formed at the end of the fill tube and it it should not.
the defrost heater is located near the bottom of the freezer section, the heat rising upward defrosts or melts the ice from the coils, air flow is very important, keep in mind that the defrost timer could be malfuctioning making the defrost time to short or a degraded condition with the heater coil not getting hot enough can be an issue, however if the problem is very random only occurring say once a month or two, then most likely air flow is the problem you have either to much food in the freezer, frozen food in boxes, plastic bags and containers are blocking the air flow during the defrost cycle,
for some reason a fan to aid in moving the heated air is not part of the design in almost all cases
rearranging the food placement such that it allows spacing between each product,
removing plastic bags and paper and cardbaord boxes that are not necessary
try to reduce the amount of food products kept in there, if it is necessary to purchase large quanties of frozen foods then get an additional freezer just for that purpose
