I have a GE Artica PSI23SGMD.  The water line plastic tubing has cracked/split in the past.  I have cut the tubing up to the 'good' section and reattached the copper water line.  I have done this to the point there is no more give in the tubing to cut and still have room to reattach my copper line.

I figured out that the tube goes up into the fridge, behind the drawers and into the water tank assembly unit.  So, I'm assuming at this point I need to replace the whole unit or at least the tubing going all the way to the water tank unit.

Are there any instructions on how to replace this?  Is it as simple as removing the screw, pulling out the old water tank, putting the new one in and fishing the tubing down through the hole?  Is it easy to fish the tubing from inside the fridge down and out the back of the fridge?

Also, do I need to order any couplings or anything?  Or will just buying the water tanks assembly have all the parts needed to fix my problem?

Thanks!

Here's where my tube is split

You shouldn't need to replace the entire tubing, just go back along the line away from the heat of compressor compartment, till you find a nice supple section again, and cut n splice from there. You'll need a John Guest coupler, available from your local hardware store, and some tubing.

Thanks. There is only a few inches left of tubing before it goes up into the bottom of the fridge. So, could I cut the tube in the fridge, behind the drawers and put the John Guest coupling there?

Will do. Of course no store had 5/16" tubing so I had to order it. So, the repair will occur on Monday.
