How does one get access to the water line as it appears that the door panel appears to be glued to the foam insulation?

You canít take the door apart. Where is the line broke? Is it broken too short to still connect to the coupling? Refrigerator repair guide

Cool GE water line inside door panel

the leak appears to be inside the door as there is water coming from the inside. I tried putting a brass connector but didn't have enough line to work with.(unable to get to the leaking spot)

It would be very uncommon (not impossible) that the water line is leaking inside the door. The first thing I would check for is a moisture issue. Such as the flap inside the ice shoot may not be closing all the way. This could cause water to drip from the door. Also if the door seal is not sealing properly water can drip from the door.

The leak may be coming from inside the freezer. Look at the bottom of the freezer and if you see ice on the freezer floor that is where the water is coming from. Check those things and post what you find.

Changing the door is really the only way to repair this but if after checking the above thing you still think you need to replace the water line I will tell you a way you “might” be able to change that water line without changing the door.

Thanks for the info, but the leak only occurs when I turn on the water cutoff valve. Apparently the homeowner jerked on the line when cleaning under the frig. There also appears, to me, an excess of water line. I'm thinking of putting another line INSIDE the existing line to bypass the break but am unsure if the water presssure will eventually cause another leak.

I am not sure how you would do that but I may work. This is what I had in mind. I was thinking you could pull the old line out and the new line in at the same time. But if it comes loose halfway you would be in trouble. I would imagine trying to push a line through the door would be like trying to push a chain. Take a long screw that fits tight in the line and screw it into the old line about halfway. Then cut the head off the screw and twist the new line onto the screw. Now when you pull the old line out the new line follows.

Note that I have never tried this before but another service tech in my area told me the he was successful in doing this and it sounded good.
