I have had a GE Profile Bottom-Freezer refrigerator for about 2 years now. I've never had a
single issue with it until recently. It seems like when the fan hits a certain speed it starts

Well, it's not up to me to decide the gameplan the homeowner should follow. As long as he/she
is fully aware of the benefits and consequences of each option open to them, then they can walk

Thanks for all the suggestions. Would the easier and cheapest way be just to get another brass
compression valve like the one that's one there (assuming it will probably fail, too, as the
years go by)...

Recently I was under my kitchen sink and discovered a pool of water under it. Upon further

Then maybe... the O-ring needs to be replaced? :)Yup, that's my next option. I popped it off

don't know what...

That adapter works with a specific brand of tub spout. It should unscrew just like the spout
did, Then you can get the correct length pipe in there to hold the new spout in the correct

Well, it didn't go as planned. I went out and bought a, "Universal" spout...but it wasn't very
