This bulletin provides information on kits available to

repair icemaker fill tube freezing and water leaking

between the grommet and fill tube on Monogram

Energy Model refrigerators.

CONSUMER COMPLAINTS: “no ice production”,

“water/ice in freezer bottom”, “icemaker is leaking

water in back corner”…

Icemaker fill tube freezing and water leaking at the

grommet could have several causes.

1.Check the following before ordering kit:

•Tubing kinks

•Clogged filter or water valve

•Loose tubing connections

•If consumer has low water pressure or other

filtration systems, remove the SmartWater™

filter and install bypass cap permanently.

2. In some units the wrap-type wire heater does not

provide enough heat to melt accumulating ice.

Replace wire heater with a foil type heater in all

BOTTOM-FREEZER and SXS DISPENSER

MODELS.

3. If water leaks between the grommet and fill tube,

and the grommet does not seal tightly around the

tube, the grommet must be replaced.

NOTE:ACCESS TO BACK OF REFRIGERATOR IS

REQUIRED FOR THIS REPAIR. GE recommends

two technicians move the refrigerator in order to

replace the fill tube grommet.
