If it connects to your house plumbing via a saddle valve, replace the saddle valve. Avoid the self piercing type as they poke a very small hole in the house water line and will get plugged easily or the needle inside the valve will break off and drift in and out of the hole in the line.Other possibilities are: Plugged water filter (time to replace) or your water line is hooked up to a reverse osmosis system (RO) and you aren't getting enough flow and pressure through the RO system. Connect straight to house plumbing if that's the case. I would imagine you have hollow egg shell looking ice cubes too...?

Inside water dispenser pumps water out really slowly on GE Profile PFS22MISBBB


It is possible that your water filters are getting plugged. Have you changed any filters lately?
The meat pan lever may also be turned to the coldest position and on units that have a low water usage, this will also cause the tank to freeze. You will want to lower the meat drawer setting or use more water from the door. This does not apply to Top Mount water dispenser models, because they do not have a reservoir. Problem requiring service, glass fill time.

  • Dispenser drips water constantly will be a water valve problem, and should be checked by a service technician. If you would like to schedule a service appointment, please contact GE Consumer Service at 1-800-432-2737 or schedule a service appointment on-line.


  • Dribble as defined as a small amount of water (few drops) that may miss the glass ONLY AFTER USAGE. This is due to a delay in the overall system.

    Dribble can be minimized by the following actions:

    - Purge the tank, by holding down the dispenser for 2 to 3 minutes, to remove any trapped air that may be building pressure and causing the dribble.
    - A few drops is normal, but you can also prevent water from missing the glass and dripping down the cradle area by moving glass slower when removing it from the cradle.
    - You may need to periodically empty the recess grill and clean out underneath it to prevent overfilling and water dripping down the front of the refrigerator.


  • Also, remember the dispenser in the door will not operate unless the door is closed

    GE Profile Icemaker freezing up; water freezes down inside wall of freezer; icemaker making ice, very slowly, but will not dispense. Water is still dispensing


    This sounds like your water valve is not completely closing allowing water to drip and freeze. First check to make sure that the water tube going into the cup of the ice maker is lined up correctly and not causing this problem - if it is lined up correctly then replace the water valve on the back of the refrigerator that your main line is connected to.

    Our water dispenser no longer gives us water, but the ice cube maker still works


    You were probably away for the holidays and turned the heat down to low, and you now have a little ice in the water lines. Simply use a hairdryer on the front and the back (inside door) of the water dispenser for exactly 20 minutes. Then try your water

    No water from water dispenser


    I have a GE GSH22JFTA side by side and my water dispenser just stopped working after about a year. The selenoid for the pump is buzzing, and when I disconenct the water line at the bottom on the freezer door, it water dispenses fine. the water is freezing IN the freezer door. I got some plastic sheathing and duct tape and opened my freezer door and sealed the freezer compartment so the food would not defrost and left door open to thaw out. in about 2 hours, voila.. my dispenser was working again. I suspect I'm not the only one with this issue.
