I have a GE Profile Refrigerator (bottom freezer type w/ icemaker) - will post model # when I get home;
We had a leak from the water supply line - plastic GE SmartConnect tubing.
The line coming from inside the refrigerator halfway down the fridge to connect to the water supply line from the basement had a crack in the tubing.
I got an icemaker replacement tubing kit from home depot, however I cannot access the water line tube that goes into the back of the refrigerator to the water filter inside.
It goes way in and I can't even see where it connects, let alone find the connector to disconnect.
Do I have to take off the back metal plate of the fridge to access this connector?
Can I cut the tubing and reconnect it to the existing pipe connector somehow, so I don't have to access the back of the fridge?
Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Just cut the tubing at a place where the tubing is in good condition and use a John Guest tube splice connector.
