My GE Profile Fridge with water and ice dispenser in the door, started leaking.  The plastic supply lines attached to the solenoid valves were cracked / broken.  I ordered new supply lines from GE along with a new solenoid valve.  I don't know how to approach the problem.  I can't see where the lines go from the valve toward the front of the unit.  Should I just replace the lines going from the solenoid valve to the front of the unit?  Any suggestions would be appreciated.  Model is the TFH30PRT.  Thanks

This is a cake-walk!  Pull the refrigerator from the wall, unplug it, remove the rear service panel and get to work!

Ok, I pulled off the rear panel.  The water in door line disappears into oblivion.  (It looks like it goes through  a small hole and I can't see past that.  Is it accessed from the front kick plate panel?  If so, how do you remove the front panel?  Thanks

Here's the new tubing for your refrigerator.   Cut out the bad tubing, buy this in-line coupler and use it to splice in the new tubing to the existing tubing.  Piece of cake.
