One issue that some people tackle on their own is when it comes to replacing the water tube kit, whether on their GE refrigerator, or really just about any other brand refrigerator too.  This repair may be necessary if your fridge is leaking water or your ice maker isn’t making ice any longer.  So let’s have a look at how it’s done…

Today, we are going to show you how to change the water tube kit on your refrigerator. It’s a really easy job – all we are going to need is a quarter-inch nut driver, a pair of slip joint pliers and a sharp utility knife. Let me show you how we do it.

The first step in this repair will be to pull the refrigerator out far enough that we can access the back of it and we will turn off the inlet water supply to the valve. Next we are going to remove the screws that secure the back cover in place, so that we can gain access to that valve. We will carefully pull that back panel away from the refrigerator.

Now with the back cover out of the way, we can remove these two quarter-inch Hex head screws secure the valve mounting bracket to the refrigerator and the pull the valve out far enough. Disconnect the wiring harness to the valve to give us a little more room and unhook the tubing from the clamps that secure it back of the fridge.

Now to remove the tubing from the fill tube, your model may or may not have this clamp on it. If it does, just depress the wing on that clamp with a pair of pliers and slide it down and you can pull tubing straight out of it Remove the old clamp from the tube and you can slide it back on to the fill tube, just so that you don’t forget to re-install it.

Next, we will remove that nut that holds it to the bottom of the valve It should only be hand tight, but if it is a little tighter, you can use your slip joint pliers to loosen it up. Now, once we have removed that old tubing The tubing that came in the kit is going to be considerably longer than what you require So we will lay it out and cut it to length.

Now that we have stretched out the existing tubing to get proper length for the replacement tubing, we will just lay it down on a block of wood and then take a sharp utility knife and make a nice straight cut on the new tubing, and then what we are going to do next is insert these metal support sleeves into the ends, both ends of the tubing, push them in all the way to the bottom out and do the same on the opposite end.

Now, before we put the one on the opposite end of the tubing, we will put that nut on first and slide the insert into place and we are ready to install that on the valve. Now, we will install the tubing back on the valve; make sure we tighten that nut securely. We will thread the tubing through those clamps and we will just insert that tubing into the fill tube and release the pressure on that clamp with a pair of pliers. Make sure the tube goes all the way and bottom is out and then slide that clamp up into position.

Now, we connect the wire harness to it We will tuck the valve up into position and will line up the holes on the bottom with the mounting screws. Next, we will reinstall the back cover taking care not to damage it.

Now, we are ready to turn on our water supply and check for any leaks, we can reconnect the power and push the GE refrigerator back into place and our repair is complete.  Now remember, while we were discussing GE refrigerator repairs today, this is equally as straight forward with most other major brands of refrigerators too.
