    I had similar problem. Water OK, but it went to fill icemaker, water flooded the freezer and when opened,my kitchen floor. Did you get any answers? Thanks,Joe

    I pulled the fridge last night because both ice and water were not working and checked to be sure I had a good water supply to the fridge itself. Once checked, I turned the water supply back on, and water dispenser worked again, but no ice is being made. Have to believe that the water supply to the ice maker is most likely froze up. Wondering if I'll need to shut down the whole thing and let it thaw out before it starts making ice again.

    Can't get the ice maker to produce ice. Just stopped all of the sudden a couple weeks back. Can't figure it out. Tried unplugging the fridge and then plugging it in again. Could ice-maker water line be frozen? Could the problem be else where? I have the type 2 system with the icemaker on/off switch. Anybody have any ideas here? Thanks, Tyler

Fix icemaker


Start at the water valve at back of unit and work your way to the ice maker. Make sure the hose at the back of the frig isn't block. Also that the arm on the maker is down and in the on position. If all this checks, then go back to the solenoid that turns the water on and off to the ice marker.

Ge gss22 where is the ice maker supply valve


Pull the refrigerator out and follow the water line to the back. It will go to a double valve solenoid. One half is for your water dispenser, the other for the ice maker. It is possible that this solenoid has failed. You can order the part online and replace it pretty cheaply. Just remember to turn off the water supply (usually under the sink) and unplug the refrigerator before hand and have a towel ready to catch water that will drain from the lines.
To order the new part get the full model number of your refrigerator and go to the GE website and look up their replacement parts page. You should be able to search for that model and all of its related replacement parts there.

Do i have to hook up my refrigerater to the sink to get water an ice


Yes you have to connect the water pipe from sink to refrigerator back.hen turn ON the water valve o run the water from fridge to freezer section.Form freezer section to water inlet valve at the back of ice maker.Then only ice maker and water dispenser will function.Other wise only freezer and fridge will work.-------------- If you dont have water tube and water valve then You can get required parts from www.repairclinic.com or from online sears part site. If you are not aware of how exactly to set and connect water valve and water tube then local plumber or fridge repair technician can do it for you.Its not at all hard job and can be easily done.It will take near to 15 minutes to connect all parts.------------- Thank you.

Ice maker works but not water dispenser


Here are the steps I took to fix thi:. First, if you tapped into a copper line near your sink, turn off the off the tap completely and turn it back on again. Why? Occasionally, calcium deposits will build there and cut down your water pressure. You may have enough pressure to run your ice maker, but not enough to push the ice out of the line (I'll talk about this later). Turning the tap on and off breaks up the calcium. This will also fix an ice maker that's slow to make ice or makes hollow cubes.

Next, I just kept running my water pump (about sixty seconds or more at a time) until the water finally started to come through. When it did, a few inch-long pieces of of ice came through -- telling me that the problem was a frozen water line. If running the water pump several times doesn't work (I think it took me six tries), consider turning off your fridge for a while (be sure to remove food and pack in dry ice).

No water flow to ice maker


Two possible answers on this one. The water control valve for the ice maker is defective or the switches inside the front of ice maker are stuck.

In door water and ice cube not working


Water dispenser is a simple touch switch in door energizing a solenoid water valve behind ventilation grate above refrigerator. Water tube runs down into and ends at ice dispenser chute. Should hear solenoid click at top of fridge when activate water touch switch. Can unhook discharge side of solenoid valve temporarily to prove water output. If water dispenser tube acts blocked it could be frozen where it ends-look up the hole at the bottom of refrigerator control buttons.
Ice maker is totally different system. No clicking when push ice button but ice in bulk tray may mean the simplest of malfunctions: Ice bin not pushed in the last half inch if ice auger not lined up with drive pegs. There are hidden switches behind ice bin that need to be engaged or nothing will happen in the ice maker: no auger noise, no clicking, no new ice making. Ice bin will be flush with sheet metal if it is in the right spot. Also plastic juice rack won't hang properly if ice bin not pushed in all the way.

GE GSH22SGRE - water dispenser not working but ice cube maker working fine


Take the icemaker out and let it sit in the sink for around 12 hours. Then put it back in. This has worked for me when I have the same problem. I think that the water line is freezing up. I have to do this every month or two.
