1st ckeck that nothing is sticking out just far enough to pop the door open.if not that, than the gaskets can were out on frig doors , you can order it on line from all appliances, get the model # from inside the frig , be patient installing it , its tricky, but it can be done by Harry homeowner. good luck.
Without a model number here how they usually operate. The DOOR / LIGHT switch disables water and ice in door functions. I.e. it is not supposed to operate with the door open. If the switch is open... i.e the light is not working door open, (Switch has 2 functions Light and Water / ive in door operation) Then the control panel / water / ice in door will all not work either. It is possible for the light to work while the CP / H2o / Ice do not work. Usually if a door switch fails the light stops working also. It is not always the case.
Try holding to door switch plunger depressed and see if your CP works and water in door work. DO NOT try ice in door as you can damage things.
If you respond with a model number and brand; I will see what I can dig up for you use while troubleshooting your unit. Expect to see parts data also.
I own a whirlpool fridge (side by side) model # ed2jhgxrt02. with a problem with the ice maker. the water is not being delivered to the ice makers. it seems that the switch to turn on the water to flow is not making contact. any suggestions?
Sounds like the door is not closing properly so humid air is coming into the fridge OR door not closing properly and the humid air is condensing around the door so it is leaking the condensation OR
The water from the defrost cycle is not evaporating so it overflows from the evaporator pan above the compressor. You better call a service technician before getting some floor damage (Do not call A&E)
We had the same issues with the water freezing and called a technician out. He added some extra insulation installed around the water lines inside the refrigerator and we also keep our frig at 40 degrees Fahrenheit, slightly above the manufacturers default setting. Hope this helps.
GE has a water dispenser heater retrofit kit that will prevent the freezing. Please don't be angry with me I don't work for GE. Do they not know the part number? Click Here=>WR49X10173 Or here=> WR49X10173 or 1381601 Dispenser Water Tube Heater Kit Yes GE should be accountable and there products have not become better. Sadly they follow LG in the accountability department. You do have a right to complain to GE and expose the problems and solutions that were offered to you from these so called technicians. A new freezer door cost as much as a new refrigerator! Sounds like the Technicians are not very well informed or certified to work on GE products.

This could be a bad water valve in the frig. This frig has a double water valves. One for the ice maker and one for the water dispenser. It should be in the lower back. Where the water line goes in. You can check this valve easily. Find the double water valve on the frig. Turn off water supply to frig first. Swap the plastic water lines going from the water valve into the frig. Turn water supply on. Then see if the water dispenser works. Sometimes you will have to operate the water dispenser for a little while to get the air out of the line. If it works now then the problem is in the water valve solenoid and needs to be replaced.
