Do you hear a slight buzzing when you try to get water?? If yes, you may have a frozen water line inside the freezer door. GE had some problems with those models. They offer a heater kit that has to be installed in the dispenser area of the freezer door. Once installed, in about a day the water line should be defrosted enough to dispense water again. If you don't hear that buzzing sound when trying to get water, you could have a bad inlet valve which is at the lower back of the refrigerator where your house water line hook to the refrigerator.
Some models had a service kit for a dispenser heated applied at the water outlet on the door. Before you go hunting for this kit, open the freezer door and knob with your hand (like a door) on the inside door liner. Does it sound hollow or solid? If hollow the heater will work for you, if solid, the heater will not work because the inside of the door is frozen and only fix was to replace the door.
Pull refrig out , and remove the back panel . At the water valve (piece the wall water line connects to , push up on the white ring and pull the LARGER line from the valve . Activate the water dispensor and see if water comes out of the valve . If no water , replace the complete water valve . If water comes out , reinstall the hose by pushing back into valve , and remount valve and rear panel . Push refrig back into place . Remove the bottom kick plate and disconnect the water line about 6" under front , from the coupling (pushing in the ring and pulling hose ). Press for water again . If no water comes out , probably frozen resevoir behind the refrig crispers , so turn refrig temp slightly warmer for a few days , to unthaw (or use hairdryer) . If water shoots out from hose , then water line inside door is frozen . This would be a more difficult procedure to follow . You can try adjusting freezer temp slightly warmer for a few days to see if it will thaw . If it doesn't thaw , come back to this thread with " water in door frozen " and myself or another expert will be glad to help you .
Use a butter knife between the dispensor grill and the lower portion of the cover . Push down and slightly outward on both sides of the lower cover . Then lift upwards after the bottom portion is free . There are 2 plastic tabs holding this lower portion on .
Remove the bottom kick plate . Follow the plastic line about 6" and you'll find a connector . Push in on one end of the connector and at the same time , pull the line out . Close the door and press for water . If no water comes out of the disconnented line , the water valve is probably bad . If water does come out , the line inside the freezer door is frozen . If this turns out to be so , you can lower the freezer temp for maybe days , or , put the food on the door, inside the freezer , tape the light switch down ( to keep the lite off and fan running ) and tape plastic over the freezer door opening so the freezer will continue to work . Reinstall the line back into the connector by pushing the hose firmly into place . Leave the freezer door open for maybe 1 or 2 days for thawing out , going by ocassionally and pressing the water dispensor . Important : lower the freezer temperature slightly to keep line from freezing again . ONLY CHANGE THE FILTER WHEN WATER FLOW SLOWS OR ICE CUBES GET SMALL . The change filter lite comes on by the amount of times water dispensor is used and to make money for the vendor .
no promblem when you shut one door it forces air to the other side remove the kick plate at the bottom adjust the rollers till the fridge leans back i set them so when you turn loose of the door slightly past the halfway position it shuts its self that way when it pops open it shuts its self
