I own a GE side by side fridge (PSC23MSTDSS). I am about to replace my third water tank as they continue to spring a leak. The pin hole leak occurs along the plastic welded seam of the tank. The installation always goes well, water dispenser works fine for a period of time but then stops working because the water tank develops a pin hole leak which sprays water into the refrigerator. I can't figure out how this tank could freeze so any help you can offer would be great. Thanks,

A lot of refrigerator manufacturers used molded plastic water reservoirs at one time. Many fail the way you describe. Most now have just gone to a coil of tubing now in place of the molded plastic and even substitute older molded tanks to a tubing kit.

This is GE's tank replacement kit:

If the tank is mounted close to the bottom, if air flow stopped colder air could possibly remain in the lower part of the compartment making it cooler. I don't know how else it could occur without other food stuffs freezing too.


Maybe someone with experience with this problem specificly on GE fridges might also offer a suggestion?
