GE GSS25SGMBS Side by Side Refrigerator

MNTECH
Thanks for the diagram help. Before I got your help, I had checked for voltage on the water solenoid and didn't have any when the water keypad was pressed. Do you have any idea what output voltage I should have coming out of the dispenser board when the water keypad is pressed? "Which of the five pins coming from the dispenser board will this voltage be on, and will it be a fixed DC voltage or a pulsed voltage? I'm trying to determine if the trouble is in the dispenser board or the main circuit board. Been LG tv repairman for years, thought I may could get my daughter's frig going for her while visiting.

Thanks for any help

Sorry about that MNTECH. I had no idea you guys were so sensitive about ratings. I thought you were just trying to be helpful and answer questions or give solutions. I thought I was answering truthfully. 1st telling me where to find the wiring diagram was very helpful, but it didn't fix the problem. 2nd telling me the output of the dispenser panel was very helpful also, but it didn't solve the problem. By studing the main board, I found I had no B+ voltage to the water relay. An F-type pigtail fuse was blown. I have no idea what blew it, I replaced it and it hasn't blown again. I'm sure GE would frown on me replacing it instead of replacing the whole board, but hey, It fixed the problem. I guess the greatest help was find the wiring diagram, so I'LL GIVE YOU A FIXYA ON THAT. So, thanks again and I'm sorry I caused all the trouble and heartache. Send me a survey and I'll fill it out correctly.

I don't have real specific info, but it looks like pins 2 (red) to pin 3 (black, common) should be 13 VDC (constant, not pulsed DC as in LG models) pin 1 (tan) is a transmit / receive and pins 4 (violet) and 5 (white) are dispenser board output to main board input. They don't really tell me which does what. Looks like there is a water relay (K6) on the main board. You did make sure the dispenser is not in the locked setting, right? (locked would give no dispenser functions, including ice dispense)

    Were you able to resolve your problem? If not, let me know what the status of your problem is. I thought I gave you some good info, but you managed to rate me only helpful twice on the same problem, which lowered my rating each time. (anything but a FixYa lowers rating of those over 90%) I try to work with askers until their problems are fully resolved if possible. Please at least leave a comment which would let me know how things turned out. Thanks.

Where (specifically) is the defrost timer located on my GE GSS22JEMD (Side by Side) Refrigerator? How Do I check to see if my thermostat is working or not? Please help.


The timer is controlled inside the control board on rear of your refrigerator. Four possibilities are the defrost element, defrost thermostat, Temperature CLIP EVAP THERMISTOR or the control board is defective. Let me know if you would like me to help you on this, Thanks, Sea Breeze

My refrigerator model GSS25SGMF (side by side) does not dispense water (ice works fine). I understand it might be one of 2 issues 1) Solenoid or 2) water inlet screen clogged with debris. How do I...


Remove lower grill and disconnect the water line going through the freezer door hinge. Usually it is a push lock fitting, which requires you to push the ring on the end of the fitting toward the center of the fitting while pulling (not hard) on the plastic tube. Now place a pan under the separated plastic hose and try the water dispenser. If water comes out, your problem is a frozen water line in the freezer door. A warmer freezer temp may help, or you can order and install a WR49X101073 water tube heater. (the heater may take 24 hours to thaw the line, but I have used it successfully several times. Cost about $50) If no water comes out the separated tube when you try to dispense water, reconnect the tube at the hinge by pushing the plastic line back into the fitting. Now, at the back of the refrig., disconnect the water line going from the water valve to the fresh foods compartment. Try to dispense water. No water at valve outlet = bad valve. Water dispensed from valve now = frozen water filter or water line at back bottom of fresh foods compartment. (make sure you disconnect the right tube. If in doubt, disconnect them both, just get them back correctly so your icemaker continues to work) Send me additional comments if needed. Don't rate before you try all the steps.

Comment by MNTECH, posted on May 20, 2009 Sorry, didn't notice that I put an extra zero in the part number. It should be a WR49X10173

Does anyone have a schematic for a GE GE GSS25SGMBS Water dispenser does not work Not getting voltage to water solenoid plus coil is not open. At my daughters for a visit and don't have any service info.


Look for electrical diagram inside the temp control area of the refrig. Open refrig door, take out two screws going up through the temp control area and look for a waxy paper folded up inside. That's the best you will find. There is not a separate schematic for the mother board, as it is not considered a repairable part. (replacement only)
