Not getting water from dispenser in door

Ge Profile side by side refrig-Model PSS25 mgnaww I get water to the connector but it now leaks and disconnects when I try to operate the water dispenser. Tried to run a narrow wire up the tubing but somewhere near the top inside the door, something blocks the wire. Could it be ice? We've had this GE Profile Arctica for several years and never had the problem before. Can I get inside the door to see if there is ice?

    Brian was right that the water flow was stopped by ice. I used a hair dryer and was able to restore the water flow. I appreciate the part number information. That is very helpful. Not sure if I need to replace the connector now, as it is not leaking. However, it is clear that it is not a very tight fit.

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."

If its several years old ,I would try turning it off for a day and then see what happens ,if its a door replacement that's going cost not sure if brian is saying you need to replace the door or just that part because he says you can't get at it .Anyway just trun off the water until you get a new one altogether they don't make them like they use to and something else will go wrong as soon as you get it fixed.

The connector that is leaking is bad causing tubing to come out and leak. The reason it won't flow is it is iced up inside of the door and no, unfortunately, you can't disassemble the door to get to it. It requires a door replacement. The connector is part number WR02X10471 from www.geappliances.com or GE Factory Service Parts at 1-800-626-2002

Ice maker stopped working. the water and ice dispense from the door, but it does not make any NEW ice...


The water tube to the icemaker inside the refrig is frozen up. Thaw out with your hair dryer. To make sure the tube is clear. Shut of the water to the refrig, disconnect the inlet water line to the icemaker. Insert a flexable through the connector fitting, I used a zip tie. The flexable item should go all the way to the icemaker

Solution #2 Replace the "water inlet valve" at bottom back right of refrig. Easy To Do.

A GE Profile Model, double door refrigerator with a water leak


If the leak is on the refrig water valve where the wall water line connects to , then use a 1/2" wrench and tighten the fitting on the water valve itself . If the leak is on the plastic tubing at the bottom of the refrig water valve , pull up on the small white ring while pushing down on the plastic tube to remove it from the valve . Cut off about 1 " of the tubing and reinsert it into the valve with pretty good pressure to be sure it is inserted completely .

It sounds like you just have a leak at the back. Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser and watch on the back for where the water may be leaking before it gets up to the ice maker.

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
