Ice maker works. When I push for water it leaks out the tube or tank. How do I get to the other end of these hoses? are the in the back? thanks
Answer Walt, the first palce to start is at the freezer bottom door hinge. Remove the kick plate grille on the bottom front of the refrigerator. You'll see the water tube entering the bottom of the hinge and can trace it back to the fill valve and water tank connection. If necessary, a loose or damaged connector in this area is a pretty common leak on this style unit. Thanks and Good Luck

How do you change asm tank water part number wr17x12510 in ge refrigerator? Do you need any other parts to change this out?
Answer Hello Shelly. You will just need the tank. To remove the water tank:
1. Remove the vegetable and fruit drawers shelf.
2. Remove the pantry drawer.
3. Remove the 2 Phillips-head screws that attach
the water tank assembly to the back wall of the
refrigerator section. 4. Carefully pull the right side of the tank assembly
approximately 5 inches out from the back wall.
5. Disconnect the water tank heater wire harness. Note: The water tank heater is attached to the tank
cover with a recessed Phillips-head screw and held
to the water tank by a tab.
6. Remove the Phillips-head screw that attaches
the water tank heater to the cover.
7. Pull out the tank heater to disengage the tab. 8. Remove the 2 Phillips-head screws that attach
the water tank to the cover. Note: The water tank and the tank inlet and outlet
tubes are replaced as an assembly. The tank inlet
and outlet tubes are routed through separate
conduits placed inside the cabinet wall.
9. Place the top table upside down on top of the
10. Push in the rear collar on the water coupling
then pull out the water tube. 11. Remove the machine compartment cover.
12. Remove the Phillips-head screw that holds the
water valve in place. 13. Push in the collar on the dispenser side of the
valve then pull out the water tube from the valve
assembly. 14. Carefully pull out the water tank and remove the
tubing from the conduits. Note: Arrows molded on the water tank show
water flow direction. When installing the water tank
tubing into the cabinet conduits, insert the inlet
tube in the top conduit and the outlet tube into the
The water tank and tube asm for my refrigerator is listed as AP3188462, but the Appliance compatibility tool says this is not the right part. Is there a different part or has it been replaced? Thank you.
Answer CJ, the model number given is a partial model number therefore our compatibility tool won't recognize parts as being compatible with the given model. The water tank and tube assembly WR17X10734 is the correct replacement listed available for your model GSS27RGMF*. Thanks.
I had a leak in the water dispenser tank about 6 months ago, so I bought and replaced a WR17X10734. Now it's leaking again. This seems pretty absurd; the only thing I could think of is that maybe it's freezing/thawing and thus bursting? The leak is literally from the surface of the dispenser tank. I suppose the other option is that it's very poorly made and the pressure finally breaks through at a seam or thin point.
Any advice would be appreciated so that I don't have to keep doing this same repair…
Answer Alan, there are a few things to check before you go any further. What is the freezer and refrigerator average temperatures, (freezer 0-5 degrees F. and refrigerator 38 to 40 degrees F. Fact. recommended settings) Check and make sure there are no articles on the shelves that may be redirecting air down the back wall of the refrigerator, or articles hanging over the sides and front of the shelves or against the refrigerator walls, that could be "trapping" the colder air down in the bottom of the refrigerator. Then check the evaporator fan motorWR60X10185 and damper assembly WR49X10091 If there's too much air passing through the damper assembly, or if the evaporator fan isn't running at the proper speed, and moving the air properly, the air would have a tendency to migrate and remain in the lower area of the refrigerator compartment and could cause the water tank to freeze and crack.
This refrigerator is a built in, how do I replace this water tank? Thanks in advance!
To Replace the Chilled Water Tank
Note: Some water may leak from the water supply
line and valve when they are disconnected.
1. Shut off the water supply to the unit.
2. Remove 2 screws and the chilled water tank
cover inside the fresh food compartment.
3. Remove 2 screws from the chilled water tank.
4. Cut the water lines leaving enough line to
reconnect. Use union WR02X10471
(5/16 x 5/16).
I have a leak in the water tank assembly part # 17X10734. when I received the part I noticed it had tubes attached. what is the procedure to replace the tubeing that is attached to this water tank? or Should I just cut tubeing and connect with a 1/4 inch john guess connector?
The tubing goes down through the floor of the refrigerator compartment and one attaches to the water valve and the other to the connector under the freezer door. You would want to route them to where they go and not use john guess connectors except for the one under the door.
