My GE Side-by-side refrigerator water line had damage where it entered the freezer door hinge. This particular model of GE did not have a serviceable waterline, until now. If you have a damaged waterline, it will need to be removed from the freezer door. Here are the steps to replace the water line.

-Turn off water supply line and unplug refrigerator.
-Remove the kick plate, remove the 1/4 waterline from the union adapter by pushing in on the adapter ring, and pulling the hose simultaneously.
-Remove the plate from top of freezer door hinge, remove 2 screws and disconnect electric connector.
-Pull up on freezer door to lift door above bottom hinge and the door can be removed and placed on the floor.
-Under the hole for the ice dispenser, on the inside of the freezer door, I used a cutting wheel (or dremel) to cut 12” width, and 24” length rectangle out of plastic door out.
-Excavate foam insulation to expose water line (which is fused and taped to door) under the foam. ***Be sure to excavate most of the insulation surrounding the water line so it can be dislodged, and pulled out of the door.
-Replace the water line with ” tubing from hardware store. Feed the water line back up thru the door hinge and pull into door, and feed hose into water dispenser tube holder.
-Use can of spray foam to re-insulate door, while foam is beginning to set - replace the cut out piece of plastic back into place so foam can fuse to it. Use tape to hold plastic pieces until foam sets.
-Replace freezer door back onto bottom hinge and tighten screws, reconnect electric connector
-Reconnect water line to union adapter (in my case I replaced water line with ” tube and used a ” union adapter to reconnect water line.
-Use bathroom caulk (white) to fill the areas/gaps where the cut out plastic plate was removed to help make a nice seal.
-Restore power to refrigerator
