I have removed the front panel and the plastic casing around it. I can see the water spout but there is no access to get to the back side of the spout to disconnect the tubing. I watched a video about how to replace the ice flapper but can't find any way to get behind the spout. Any advice? The cost of the door is $525 and hardly seems worth it.
It is in a solid plastic piece and appears to be screwed in from the back side. I cut away a little of the plastic and can see some rust from the back of a screw.
I am going to try to clean out the line using bleach and a turkey injection needle that is the exact size of the inside of the line. Hopefully this will work. Wish I could think of away to get the bleach in from the top part so that it would be easier.
I thank you for offering to answer my question but am not pleased with the answer nor did I feel like my answer was answered from the beginning and I had to "design" a way to bleach out my lines myself. Which is working great. Using a turkey injector that has an exact 1/4 inch cap. Flushes it out perfectly. I wish I had know that the line could not be replaced from the beginning so that I would have have spent the time taking all the control panel apart etc.
Yes you did answer that it may not be replaceable. Sorry I was not intending to be rude. Just irritated with how many hours I have spent researching and trying to fix a problem that GE said would be cheaper to buy a new refrigerator. Just disappointing on such a new fridge.
Thanks for your help and I apologize if I came off rude. Just irritated with it. At least I know how to replace the control panel if it ever goes bad!
