Check your freezer for ice. do you have alot of ice in your ice maker tray? if so your water line could be frozen. try to self defrost the freezer for about 3hrs to thaw out the water line. check your water valve also. when you call for water do you hear a humming or buzzing noise? on ge fridges ive worked on if you hear a humming noise when calling for water, most likely your water valve is ok. trace the water. meaning where does the water start? at the wall then through a hose then to your valve which is behind fridge on bottom. trace the hoses and you will find the prob

Awesome!....you got it on the money! The ice box was so full I could hardly get the drawer out. Yes there's a humming noise, it sounds exactly like it would if the water was flowing only no water. The freezer coil is also VERY frozen, so I'm doing a defrost on that now. Many thanks for the advice.

Yes sounds like solenoid in valve for ice maker is not opening. Either the valve is bad or ice maker isn't sending voltage to valve.

You have a dual water inlet valve where your water supply connects. One goes to the ice maker and the other goes to the water dispenser by way of the water reservoir you mentioned in the fridge.

Open the door and hold the door switch down and try the ice dispenser. Do you hear any thing.You should hear the ice door open and the augur motor turning to turn the augur which pushes the ice out the door. If the augur doesn't turn Take all the ice out of the bin and try. perhaps the motor is too weak or the augur is locked up. Take the bin out and try to see if the motor will turn with no load. The motor is behind the back cover where the bin sits. See if you get power to it using a voltmeter when you try the dispenser. If you are, probably bad motor. If not ,dispenser switch or solenoid is not working.

I have the exact same problem. Ice maker works but nothing at the water dispenser. The light come on when I press the lever and I hear a click. But nothing like water "trying" to be pumped. I am nervous it is more than just a frozen water line. Anyone else have this problem or a solution?

Ice maker dispencer motor won't spin. You can hear a click, and the ice dispenser light dims. The water dispenser works fine.


Best solution is to replace the ice maker. The ice makers are a cheap item and very hard to work on. It is easier to replace the ice maker rather than trying to take it a part and replaced the motor or gears. If you do want to take on the project you have to remove the ice maker and check the gears for a worn spot and the motor to see if it is still running. Parts can be purchased at a local appliance dealer. In tulsa we have Greers appliuances.

Will not dispence ice, crushed or solid cubes, will dispence h2o


Hi

If the ice maker has completely stopped producing ice Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

and if the ice maker is producing ice poorly When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve.

First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.


Please do rate the solution as "FixYa" and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

I have a Kenmore model 106 9555710 SxS - no wate through door


check inside the bottom of the refrigerator for water, the water line goes thru the back of the refrigerator and it may have cracked and leaking inside instead of going to the dispenser.
if not then water is most likely frozen in the line going thru the back of the refrigerator. look behind the pans in the refrigerator and there should be a coil of clear plastic water line, this is the reservoir that chills the water for the dispenser. sometimes it will freeze up if the refrigerator is very cold.

Door dispenser stopped dispensing, starting making a constant clicking and now the entire fride isn't working


We had the same problem. Our frigerator is 1.5 year old. Everytime we try to dispence water or ice the dispencer clicks and the whole thing turns of. We had a GE repairman come by: the electronic board needs to be replaced: total cost $350. (cost of the board only: $150. We are considering disconnecting the dispencer by unplugging the board (according to the repain man the ice maker wil still work)or buy a new refrigurator (for sure NO GE!!!!!!)
