GE Profile Side by Side - Vegtable bin frozen and water not work

Seems like the vegatable bin is frozen and the water lines froze also. I can not get water to flow. The top of the frig is O.K. Had this problem last week and the frig shut down to defrost. After a few hours the problem corrected itself but it is doing this again. Why would this happen? Do I need a service call ?

    Maybe a fan problem. Needed a service call.

You may need service however you can try several pans of hot water overnight in the fridge, clean out the moisture and restart the next day. The problem may be solved.

Will not dispence water


My water dispensor INSIDE the door froze up.
I payed a repair guy $75 to use MY BLOWDRYER to "thaw" the frozen water line INSIDE the freezer door (below the water dispenser).

He said anytime the frozen food extends over the freezer shelf and touches the freezer door for a long enough period of time, the water line inside the door FREEZES!!

PREVENTION: "Keep some airspace between the door and frozen food."

The Side by Side GE Profile refrigerator does not dispense any water or ice. It worked for a short period of time but just stopped working. Also, all the options that are suppose to be lite go off when the...


Could be several problems (I'm a homeowner, not an expert). GE had a problem with the water line in the freezer door: not enuf insulation so the line freezes, hence no water flow. I would look at this first, especially if you press the water dispenser handle and you hear the pump, but no water comes out. Ditto if the ice bin is empty or the ice maker isn't making any more ice. If the icemaker is making ice but not dispensing it, then the auger (thing that agitates the ice cubes in the bin) may be broken or frozen. (if frozen be sure ice cubes in bin are loose and not frozen into one big ice cube).

The water dispense in the door of my fridge stopped working. I checked the lines in back and took the filter out to check it. All seems fine. As far as I know it's making ice because the bin is full.


Check the line under the door, there is a connection you can release and check if the water is flowing through the filter etc. My guess is the water line in the frezzer door is frozen. I thawed it out with a hair dryer and a wire snake but it froze again. Don't know the long term solution.

I HAVE A GE PROFILE REFRIGERATOR TOP FREEZER, MODEL# TBX22PAYMRAA THERE IS ALWAYS WATER ON THE SHELVES AND A LOT OF WATER ON THE BOTTOM UNDER THE VEGTABLE BINS. WHAT IS CAUSING THIS AND HOW CAN I FIX IT?


Two separate problems here.
One; remove the ice maker, then remove the back panel from the freezer. The defrost drain is probably frozen . It will have to be thawed. Then run a 1/4 cup of bleach through it.

Two. Water on the shelves sometimes is caused by the frozen drain line referred above.
But can be from a poor door seal on the fresh food compartment.
Check the sides and bottom of the door seal. It may have pulled loose from the plastic liner.
If it is warped and damaged it must be replaced.

Water not working, does make ice


I have the same problem, and from what I had read from others, the water line freezes inside of the freezer door. I took a hair dryer and warmed up the front of the door and that solved the problem for a while, then it froze up again. Apparently GE fixed the problem in future units by adding additional insulation in the door

Not getting water from dispenser in door


if you can get ice but not water from the dispenser then suspect a frozen water line within the door . Check you get water to the connector at the bottom of the freezer door. Sometimes you can clear the blockage by connecting a steamer to the pipe but this will only be a temporary fix . If the pipe has frozen within 6 inches of the dispenser outlet then there is a heater mod that can be fitted WR49X10173
