Plastic tubing OK for GE refrig/freezer?
My GE refrig/freezer which cost about 1100 quit after at about 2 years from a coolant leak. (Since it was in seasonal home, had run less than a year so was out of warranty). When GE repairman came out, he said I needed to replace the plastic tubing which had been used to connect the water line because it would leak in future. He doesn't do that, so I'm trying to sort out if it needs to be done.
I'm having basement done and plumber can do it next time out, but the contractor said plastic is what is commonly used and wasn't sure it was necessary.
Opinions-should it be changed?
