My ice dispenser keep shooting out ice after I moved glass away. The ice comes out in handfuls.


Sounds like there is still ice in the Shute, the unit is design to clear the shute so ice want freeze in the shute. Just touch and allow the shute to clear. The shute doesn't get as cold as the rest is why this happens. There is a micro switch near the handle that might be sticking, but seldom does.

GE refrigerator GSL25JFTFBS water dispenser quit working, but ice dispenser still works?


We had a repair man today about exact model and problem. He said the hosed inside he freezer door was frozen. open freezer door and cover the opening with a blanket. Leave open long enough and the water will unthaw and start running again. He said the manufacturers do not pack the hoses in there , they use foam, it eventually gets old and can get shifted to far to the inside. It worked ! working fine now.

Ice dispenser stuck on


Either the paddle for the ice/water dispenser is stuck or you have a bad microswitch behind the dispenser.
To stop the ice/water from dispensing open the freezer door and press or hold the child lock button down. Once the unit is in child lock mode you can shut the door without energizing the dispenser.
Another option is to remove the upper freezer door hinge cover and disconnect the wire connector up there. This will remove voltage from the dispenser as well. Then either replace the paddle or switch. Sometimes the paddles/switches will get stuck because of splash up from ice dropping in sugary drinks.

The ice maker will not quit dispensing ice and it no longer cools


For now unplug the pin plug at lower freezer door hinge and disable the dispenser control board until we see if the keyboard or the dispenser board is at fault. Sea Breeze
