Replacing a hose from water assembly?


I have a GE TPS24BPDA with ice maker and stuff. Now the compressor have worn out a hole on the water line. The hose needs to be replaced. Howver the hose comes from the valve thru a "organge fitting" which I guess is a self sealing fitting. My question is how to best remove the hose?
Or should I look a sollution to insert a couppling to remove the peice of the hose that has a hole in it?

As you can understand I am not an expert. Thankfull for any advise.
Except the one that says I have to replace the entire water valve or whole fridge.

Icemaker, chilled water line or filter line?

?Orange fitting?....in the cabinet? If yes, likely just pushes through and it filled in with a silicone or such.

Probably will need to see where the line starts, ends and it's size ( 1/4", 5/16" ).

Thanks Jeff
Right, colour of the fitting is not important.
When I first tried to pull the hose it was very stuck, however once I held teh quick Cuplings flange it came out just nice.
So yes It was just a question to use the muscle.

can you beleive a 5 year old fridge (GE) that is so poorly put together that the compressor worn a needle pin sized hole in the water supply line?
The hose have been grinding to a copper pipe comming from the compressor. Luckily we noticed it a week after we came back from a 5 week vacation!
Imagine if it happened the day we left?
Well sometime you hvae to consider luck a part of life.
By the way I did by a Lottery ticket!

Now I am on my way to fix the ailing Ice maker.
I will start looking at existing posts on your forum.

Thanks mate

Very lucky!
The insert part of the connector normally is pushed in while pulling on the line to remove it from the fitting....a third arm helps

Good luck with the repair.
