Question about GE Profile 26.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Dispenser TFX27PRBWW

1 Answer

TFX22CR GE refrigerator TFX22CRXFWW does Not dispense ice.

The ice dispenser in my TFX22CRXFWW GE Side-by-side freezer/frig has stopped working.  The ice maker still works and the water still dispenses, but the button beneath the dispenser does not make ice.
The problem happened gradually. Before the dispenser stopped working, it would work intermittently if we forced the selector lever a little harder to the right. Little by little the "right position" became harder to find until finally it stopped working. 
Please help!

I had this problem with a similar refrigerator. The problem was the slide switch burns itself especially if you slide it from ice to water while holding the glass in to get ice and water into your glass. Better to slide it to ice, press the glass in to get ice, release the glass to stop the ice, slide the switch to water, then press the glass in again to get water. I "fixed" mine by removing the control panel and soldering some of the connections on the slide switch together so that we now have no crushed ice function, but the ice cubes work again. You can also replace the circuit board in the control panel to restore it to like-new operation. I could not find a place to order just the slide switch.

Not sure if this is the same problem with your unit, but sounds the same.

GE Side By Side Ice Machine & Water dispenser not getting water


you may have a pin hole in your water line to your dispenser or you could be leaking at the water valve itself on the water dispenser side. you'll have to pull the refrigerator out from the wall and look where the main water line goes into the back of the refrigerator. you will probably have to take the back off to see. be sure you put the back of the refrigerator back when you are through.

How do I remove the ice/water access panel on GE Profile fridge? The ice dispenser, water dispenser, and all lights stopped working.


First, open door to freezer, while pushing in on the ice dispenser trigger look at the lights in the freezer and see if they go dim, if they do then the "main board" on back of frig is defective. This is a common problem with these boxes. Its somewhat uncommon for the ice, water and light to go out at the same time, its possible, but not common.

Another way to tell if main board is bad is when you do as stated above and you hear the evap fan stop then main board is for sure bad.

Let me know what you find out. If main board then I will need model & serial number to give you the right part number for main board.

If none of the above occur, then advise and I will tell you then how to pull dispenser apart.

GE side by side fridge/freezer. Water stopped comming out the dispenser..


Hello.

If your frig only has a dispenser for water, the first thing you need to check, is the shut off valve, which is sometimes under the kitchen sink, and make sure nobody turned it off for some reason.
If you have a frig that dispenses both ice and water, and only the ice is working but you aren’t getting any water, then it is probably the water side of the dual water valve that has gone out. A lot of times the water side of the valve will go out before the icemaker side, because it tends to be on longer due to people filling up glasses and pitchers.
If you hear water running when you try and get water, then you probably have a leak in the water line that goes to the dispenser.
Another thing that is rare is the water will freeze in the reservoir that is behind the crisper drawers in the fresh food compartment. This sometimes happens when it isn’t used enough.
