Question about GE Profile PSW26P Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

GE Profile side by side no water

There is water to the grey plastic tubing to the refrigerator
but no water to the filter so naturally no water comes out
the dispenser and no ice is being made. I can't believe Sears
didn't check it when they delivered it

    I have no idea where the solenoids are, but the water isn't

    getting as far as the filter. The delivery guys didn't leave

    a manual. I was out of town and my wife let them out the

    door without even checking the water.

Trace the water lines, from the sink, to the filter and to the solenoids going to the tank and ice maker. you may need to purge the air inside the water lines.

    you can try removing the filter just to see if there is no water. turn off the tap valve from the sink, remove the filter and slowly open the tap valve from the sink. see if there is water coming out of the filter housing.

    if there is none, check first the water tap if there is water coming out to the line to the fridge.

    tnx again,

My water stopped dispensing but I can feel air like it's trying


Sometimes the plastic tube is the door freezes. If you remove the front grill at the base of the refrigerator you should see a tubing disconnect.

these are fairly easy to disconnect either by unscrewing the plastic nut or pushing in on a ring around the tubing. if you disconnect this. just hit the water dispenser actuator for a very short time. if water comes out the tubing is frozen in the door and you will have to shut down the refrigerator for a while and let it defrost. if you don't get water there then perhaps the water reservoir in the refrigerator is frozen. It is located behind the crisper drawers.

I have a GE profile model # TFX30PR the plastic tube for the icemaker keeps freezing


The water inlet valve is bad allowing the water to drip into the tube and allowing it to freeze there clogging the tube. This is the most common cause for the tube to freeze. You will need to replace the "water inlet valve" on the back of your unit. Here is the part you need to order.

I have a GE Profile Arctica refrigerator - water is leaking from the punctured plastic hose going up to the water filter (plastic hose from the bottom of the solenoid goes into refrigerator assembly)....


Good day!!!!


Refrigerators with a defrost cycle drain the melted water from the evaporator coils through a tube or a hole into a drip pan underneath the refrigerator. The water usually evaporates, but most times the pan is removable and can be drained. If this path of water is blocked at any point because the drain hole or tube is crimped or clotted with anything, it will back up inside the refrigerator area and try to find a way out, usually under the crisper drawers. To fix this, clear the obstruction in the drain tube. The drain pan at the bottom of the refrigerator can overflow or get old, crack, and develop a leak. Other times, mold can grow in the drain tube and clog it. Most refrigerators have an ice and/or water system built into them. This means that you have a waterline attached to the back of your refrigerator and it comes out as ice or cold water. Anywhere that water travels through the refrigerator and freezer can turn into a leak. To find the leak, you need to follow the tubes that carry the water through the appliance and make sure that all connections are tight.
Leaking containers or spills in the refrigerator can be misdiagnosed as leaks. First make sure that there are no puddles of juice, milk, water, etc. on one of the large capacity shelves.

I hope this solution will be helpful...Thanks for using fixya..

I have a GE Profile side by side with water and ice in the freezer door, it is about 3 1/2 years old. The water was barely coming out of the dispenser, I changed the water filter and it is not any better -...


We had this problem on our own fridge at home. it turned out the plastic lines which feed these appliances liable to fill up with lime and calcium which will restrict water flow. take a look at getting a new line.

something else to look at. is the tube getting kinked when you push the fridge into postion?

let me know if this helps. davcol47@hotmail.com

GE Profile Arctica refrigerator - water is leaking from the bottom of the solenoid where the plastic hose goes up to the water filter (on the outside of the refrigerator.


Turn off the water supply and check for cracked or broken water tubing/line. Make certain that there is teflon (white) tape on threads connecting water inlet hose from shut off valve at wall to water valve at refrigerator. If there is no apparent damage to tubing or hose, then your problem may be with a water valve solenoid that is not seating/closing tightly. Replace the water valve assembly, if necessary.

Note: If plastic tubing is damaged, etc., you can splice the tubing with a "coupler" and/or more tubing purchased from Home Depot or Lowe's.

Ice maker does not work


Turn the icemaker off for 15-20 seconds at the rocker switch on the side of the icemaker body (square white box)Turn switch back on and immediately press the feeler arm (white paddle) in and out three time. This should start a test cycle. If still no water after it runs through a test harvest cycle (will take about 4-5 minutes), remove the icemaker and look at the ring finger size plastic tube that allows water flow into the icemaker. It is probably full of ice (because of a plugged filter or some other water supply interruption -possibly while you were changing the filter). If the tube is iced up warm it up gently with a hair dryer being extra careful not to get drops of water in the hair dryer nozzle. Do NOT use too high of a heat setting as that tube will melt... complicating things unnecessarily

GE Profile Refrigerator - Small Leak & Loud Noise


Does water come out of the water dispenser?

I is more likely that the tube that drains the water down from the self defrost mechanism is clogged. Look in the very back of the reefer cabinet, you will see a trough back there, if it is full of ice and water the drain tube is clogged up. If so, a little blast of air from a can of air (like the ones you use to blow off computer key boards will blow it out. Then the water can drain down to the evaporator pan and you will no longer get water on the floor.

GE refrigerator Leaks in back when trying to use water dispenser


That tube needs to be replaced or repaired. It connects to the electric valve with a compression type fitting.

GE PROFILE SIDE BY SIDE water line tube


Sounds like you are talking about the plastic nut that screw onto the water valve. That nut should just pull off. May have to pull kind of hard then just push onto the new line. Is this what you are talking about? Let me know.
