Default how to install AP3205548

Hi,

I'm new to this site. Hope somebody can help me. I just bought AP3205548 for my refrigerator. It was leaking so I would like to install it. Does anyone know how I can install this? I tried to disassemble it last night. Not sure where the hose going and leading to? It goes inside the slant portion of the fresh food section but I could not see a diagram that it could be removed.

Thanks of your help in advance

Were you able to do this ? If you did do you mind explaining it as I need to do the same thing?

This forum is a tad weird in the sense that they choose which questions they will answer. I asked a question some time and it never got answered. I had to go to other forums to get a reply.

Good luck with it ...

Hi I order this part and then I realized that my unit is still under warranty. The issue of my unit are it freezes on the last two drawers on the right side which case to freeze this particular part. I called GE and they fixed it for me.

These are the things that they fix.

a. replaced AP3205548
b. they used 2 pcs part WR02X10471.

Using a and b above to assemble every thing. So the tube from letter a was cut and using part b to connect both tubes end. Every thing was done inside the ref.

They replaced the dumber too. They say this will fixed the freezing issue.

I hope this help...

I replaced my water tank yesterday with these parts.

AP3205548 (WR17X11440) Water tank disp asm
AP3670039 (WR02X10471) Fitting, water connector union - 2 of these
1.)
Cut off water supply behind fridge and run water from dispenser.
No water should be coming out.
Take out 3 bottom food containers and shelves.
2.)
Unscrew tank assembly, mine had only one screw. Pull down styrofoam and then tank.
3.)
The tubes are surrounded by a styrofoam tube. Slice it vertical to take off
with a single edge razor blade. Careful not to slice tubing.
4.)
Make a mark or place tape on one of the tubes upper and lower
so you know which tube is which after the cut.
Cut tubing on bad tank about 6 inches from bottom where it goes into bottom of fridge with razor blade. Make as straight a cut. Take tank out.
5.)
Push a connector on both pieces of tubing coming out of fridge.
6.)
Take new tank and compare with old tank. Take off stryfoam tubing around tubes. Cut those tubes 1 to 1 1/2 inches longer than bad tank just in case you have to do this again in the future. Better to have more than less.
7.)
Connect those tubes to refrigerator tubes making sure you connect to the right tubes based on the marks you made in step 4.
8.)
Turn on water supply and start the water dispenser until it starts filling with water. Can take 1 -3 minutes as the new tank has to fill.
Look at tank and fittings while water running.
You should be leak free.
9.)
Screw assembly back in and push tank foam up. Push tubing back as it is longer now. Take split foam from tubing and surround tubing. You are done.

I'm curious why there's a need to cut the tubing. From the diagram:

Fresh food section replacement parts for General Electric PSC23MGPAWW Refrigerator | AppliancePartsPros.com

it appears the water tank (810) and water line (812) are 2 separate parts. I assume there's a way to remove the tubing from the water tank and re-use the old tubing. So, I'm not sure why there's a need to cut the tubing and reconnect with the quick connect.

Also, do you absolutely need to turn off water supply at the back of the fridge? I only see water running through the tube when the water dispenser is activated/pushed.

I just shared information on the correct way to do this after doing it myself.
I tried repairing it without having to buy anything. No luck.
Buy all the parts. You can always return some of them.

The hoses are part of the manufactured tank without any connectors involved. If you want to take the chance of having a leak on the new tank and thus having to buy the parts twice go for it.

I'm not trying to skimp out on buying the parts. Just trying to understand why the need to cut the tubing. Can I either reuse the old tubing or run new tubing? Running new tubing will be more work than splice and connect. Is the tubing fused to the tank? I'm assuming it is since your reply above says it is part of the manufacturing.


I guess it'll be clear when I actually get the tank part.

Thanks

Ok, I received the part and it is clear now why the need for the quick connects. However, one could attempt to run all new tubings from the water tank but it may not be long enough or even feasible. I read in a forum, the lines running inside the fridge are not meant to be replaced.

So, quick connect it is. Saves me time and hassle. Though I wish it was the more readily available 1/4" which HomeDepot/Lowes readily sells for $2 compared to 5/16" which I have to mail-order ($8) or try to find at some specialty plumbing supply store.
