How do you replace the water hose part#5210JA3004A on the back of my kenmore elite french door refrigerator? It cracked.

WELL that depends. I'm assuming its to the dispenser not working or the ice maker? Anyways I'll just assume it leaks when you try to get water. Pull all of the shelves out of the fresh food section of the unit. You will have to dissemble the water filter housing on the unit. You will have you pull off the cover (no screws) then there are 2 or 3 1/4 screws holding that housing on the upper left in place (depending on model) bring down the water filter housing and identify your broken water line. These are quick connect water line connectors. They have a blue or red circle around where the line goes in. You push the red circular part into the connector like a (Chinese Finger Trap) and pull out the water line. You may have to undo some Philips screws on the back of the cabinet. Trace the broken line down the back of the unit where you will take the back panel off and remove the screws holding on the water inlet valve. Be carful, if you have a copper water line and your house is wired wrong, there is a very small chance it could be electrified. UNPLUG THE UNIT (**RAW 120 VOLTS IS RUNNING THROUGH THOSE WIRES EVEN IF YOU AREN'T ENGAGING THE WATER LEVER***!!!) You dont need it plugged in for diagnosing or repairing at all and considering this is modeled after an LG fridge, never work on it live. The water inlet valve has the same (compression style quick connect) you have to push in the O ring and remove the water line out of the valve too (needle nose pliars for beginners because the water line is already damaged anyways, just be careful not to break off the waterline in the valve) run the line (** quick connect your new part**)FROM THE WATER FILTER HOUSING FIRST then connect it to the valve, then tighten up the water line along the back of the unit. Then carefully re-install all parts AND CHECK FOR LEAKS WHILE ITS STILL PULLED OUT (*have your wife, brother, friend try to get water out of the dispenser first) ((((((If its the ice maker water line you should install it the same exact way, except that line usually runs through the upper left shoulder of the fridge, or it runs kind of like its entering the freezer and you only connect it to the water valve. After everything checks ok for leaks when you try to get water you're all set.

I have a Whirlpool fridge that needs a new water filter. Twice now, when I remove the filter to change it, water gushes out even though the ice maker is OFF. I quickly turn off the water line and mop

The Whirlpool fridge requires a water supply connection to a cold water line. Before you connect the water supply to the water line on the fridge, make certain the unit is unplugged from the wall. Press the button and drop down the cover. Then twist to release the old filter and twist the new one into the filter head. Run about 2 gallons of water through dispenser to remove any air from the lines. Liquid EPDM Rubber Roof Coatings for Roof Leaks Repair EPDMCoatings

Kenmore water hose

If it is not connected to the freezer unit - it cannot make ice.. Ice is frozen water - you have connected a separate line that seems to have nothing to do with the fridge unit.

I just bought a used kenmore elite side by side refrigerator and hooked up the water line to the back of the fridge. My question is where does the long water line the goes to the fridge and comes back...

Where you hook the house water line is to the water inlet valve which is a one in two out solonoid controlled valve. One side goes to the water dispenser in the door and the other hooks to the ice maker connection.

So I suspect the long water line you are talking about has had the lines switched at the valve and needs reversed. The long line probably goes up the back of the unit and connects to the ice maker. The one for the water dispenser should hook to the water chiller resevoir and then to the water dispenser.

How do I hook up the plumbing. Do you have an exploded diagram of the back panel where all the water hook ups are at.

It depends on the refridgerator. Some have two inlet valves. Basically, you have a water line from the home. Usually copper line. You also will have two places for water lines on the opposite side of the inlet valve. Sometimes you may only have one. The line leading from fridge ( if ice and water through door) will hookup to the line where you have the fridge connactor. The quick connects to the inlet valve. The second one will be for ice maker. That water line runs up the back of fridge into freezer. Make sure you place the quick connects in the right spot. Process of elimination because some inlet valves wont let you change the hoses once installed. Connect the main water line from the home. Connect both quick connects dont connect water lines yet. Push the water thru the door botton and see which valve opens on the inlet. Which valve on inlet opened and allowed water to come out. That is for fridge and other is for icemaker.

If you need further assistance please feel free to contact.

Frigidaire Gallery Professionaly series broken ice maker

If you hook up the water to the fridge, that means you connected the water line to the 'Water Inlet Valve' of the machine. There should be a two wire harness connected to the water valve back. Look for that....

But please note following...

Some water valves in fridges are complicated with one harness for water dispenser line valve and another harness for ice maker water line.

Also seeing a disconnected wire harness does not mean it is for the water valve. May be most likely. But be careful sometime there are test wire harness for technicians to get power readings for components.

Hooked up the water supply to my beaumark fridge and there is currently water in the line to the fridge, however, I cannot get the fridge to dispense water from the dispenser, everything else appears to be...

Is the unit brand new? If so there may still be packing / shipping materials preventing the switch activation arm from contacting the micro switch. You should hear an minor click when the water dispenser arm is depressed. If you do not hear a click locate and remove the packing material. If you hear a click then watch to see if the water line in the back of the unit moves at all when the switch is depressed. If it does not move then the water dispenser valve is not warking. Again if it is new this would be a warranty repair.. It may be something as simple as the water valve connector is not properly connected. If it is an older unit and you just now started to use the water thru the door function the water supply vavle could simply be stuck from lack of use. A good thump on the side of the valve lower body can sometimes freel the valve plunger. Getting to this point would require opening the back of the unit. One last thing is if the line moves when the water switch on the front door is activated then you may just have to wait until the air in the line clears. I am assuming you have already tried this method.

GE GSS22JFMC when I press the water button it leaks

That's where the water line runs to get to the dispenser. You may have to remove the cardboard backing to see it. The line runs from the water inlet valve. That's where the supply line from the house connects to the fridge. One line goes up to the ice maker and the other goes over to the fridge side where it goes inside the fridge behind the crisper to a reservoir where the water is chilled before it goes to the dispenser. Look for the water coming out when someone else tries the dispenser. Look for a fitting that has come loose.
