Question about Refrigerators

Water runs and does not stop

I have a GE fridge.  At first, the water did not dispense when I pressed the lever.  It did once then stopped again.  I looked in the back and the water line is in place and intact.  I took the filter out to see what would happen.  After I put back the filter in, now the water runs and does not stop.  I pressed the button for ice and this did not cause an interruption in the flow of water, but ice did come.  What do you think the problem is?

    Thanks for the suggestion. I have not yet implemented it, but it makes a lot of sense. I believe this will solve the problem.

The water from the dispenser is running and i can't stop it how do you turn of???

The cause of the problem you describe could be ether water inlet valve or the water lever dispenser switch.Locate the water valve at the back of the refrigerator, open the water and take off both plugs from the valve. If the water flow want stop replace the water valve. If it will, replace the water lever switch.

I just hooked up the water supply line for the ice maker and water. Water is continously running from the water dispenser. Pushed the lever thinking maybe it is stuck. Nope. Doesnt stop..

Is this a new or used refrigerator?

There appears to be a double water valve located on the bottom of the fridge. One of them is either clogged open, or there is something on the door lever which is keeping the water switch constantly enabled.

TFX22CR GE refrigerator TFX22CRXFWW does Not dispense ice.

I had this problem with a similar refrigerator. The problem was the slide switch burns itself especially if you slide it from ice to water while holding the glass in to get ice and water into your glass. Better to slide it to ice, press the glass in to get ice, release the glass to stop the ice, slide the switch to water, then press the glass in again to get water. I "fixed" mine by removing the control panel and soldering some of the connections on the slide switch together so that we now have no crushed ice function, but the ice cubes work again. You can also replace the circuit board in the control panel to restore it to like-new operation. I could not find a place to order just the slide switch.

Not sure if this is the same problem with your unit, but sounds the same.

GE fridge water leak

GE is a durable appliance and since you didnt provide more details you description states " the fridge sounds like its running water ". Thats good that means that the heater coil located within the walls of the freezer are doing their job. The water is traveling down to a drip pan under the fridge. This happens on a timed cycle in order to keep the ice from building up in the freezer compartment like it used to in the refridgerators long time ago.How well a job is it doing , maybe not so well ! Since you said " the ice dispenser is ALWAYS frozen over. That could be the freezer coil or it could also be the stop lever above the ice container which it is not telling the dispenser to stop producing ice.You can test it out by raising the lever to its upper most position.If it solves the over freezing then you dont have to replace it . But, In case you need to replace the motor assembly.Which is simple . First unplug the cable plugged into the back wall, and then remove the mounting screws.When you go buy the motor assemly be sure to take the BRAND, MODEL# , SERIAL# , DATE MFG which can be gotten from a plate on the inside wall And if that still freezes over unfortunately then the heater coil needs to be changed out by a tech which could be labor intensive (money wise that is). GE usually makes their product "owner friendly". You should ask the guy selling parts if he could show you an exploded view of where the heater coil is located and help give you tip on installing the coil. They have diagrams to show how and where it goes.Be sure and take note and sometimes the can help you over the phoneshould you run into a snag. At first it may seem difficult but once done you'll feel a sense of accomplishment and pride.

Ice maker not working

So your not getting water from the dispenser either??? Yes the water filter can be the source of your problem. Let me know if the water is coming from the dispenser.
