The waterdispenser works much like the ice dispenser. To request water at thedoor, a person presses a lever on the front of the refrigerator thatactivates a switch. The switch turns on an electric water valve at theback of the refrigerator. Water flows through the valve into a tube,then flows into a container in the refrigerator to be chilled. As newwater enters the container, the water that is displaced flows through aseparate tube to the user.


he ice andwater-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Manycomponents work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from asimple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most othercomponents are not user serviceable.

GE Refridge GSH25JFXBB Ice but no water


This is solution to frozen water 'plug' preventing water dispense but ice maker still making ice. I first tried a suggested fix from this site to just leave dispenser light on overnight. I added some aluminum foil sealed over the module with a little tape to hold in heat. By morning still no water dispensed BUT I escalated the suggested fix by 1.) placing a large mug of boiling water in the compartment behind the aluminum foil 'cover' heat seal and 2.) added a small bean bag heating/cooling pad [heated in microwave] to the ice chute in the door from the freezer side. After one change out of the two 'heat sources' (about 30 min)...viola! Water dispensing again; proving it was an ice plug in the water dispenser. NOTE: When first adding the heating bag to the ice chute in the door, I found that a good bit of frost had formed at the top of the ice chute, so it appears this problem arose when someone (maybe even me) didn't close the freezer door completely due to overcrowding in that section of the freezer pushing against the freezer section door.

Water not getting to the ice maker and water outlet. Put on a new line didnt; help. I didn't have water hooked to for a few years.


When both the ice maker and the water dispenser do not work the problem is usually the door / light switch. Check the door switch and make sure the light goes out when the door switch plunger is depressed. The light can work normally but the swtch can still have failed. The switch has one loveing tab on one side of it that you replease with a thin knife blade and coax the switch out of the cabinet. There are 3 contacts on the switch C (common) NC (Normally open) and NC (Normally closed) Read continuity as follows:
Common C to NC with the plunger extended.
Then with the plunger depressed C to NC.
It must read continuity for the ice maker and water dispenser to work.

This manual will help you:

Just note the door switch plunger is taped down to perform any tests.

GE gss22sgrf sidebyside water dispenser does not work, ice does


these unit have a problem with the water line freezing inside the freezer door. ge makes a tape style heater that goes inside the dispenser area to give just enough heat to keep it from freezing the water line.
you can try to change the freezer settings, warmer, clean the coils at the back of the unit and leave the freezer door open for 20-30 minute to allow the door to warm up and that will be a temporary fix to allow water to flow until you can get the heater kit.

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.

No water at door


I have a 3 year old GE GSL25 refrigerator with the water/ice dispenser on the freezer door. Even when setting the freezer at 2 and turning the fridge's lower drawer to the warmer "cheese" setting, the water dispenser line would freeze every few weeks. If you have this problem, first verify that the water filter (back of the fridge) is not clogged and that water flows from the water line at the bottom left corner of the freezer door (disconnect and press water delivery dispenser-see owners manual).
I used the hair dryer recommendation to unfreeze the line by heating the flat area of the freezer door directly behind the water dispenser area (~10 min did it). The trick to keep it from freezing up again involved buying a cheap foam sleeping bag mattress (~1/3 inch or 1 cm thick) made of a polyurethane foam (pretty dense). I cut it to match the flat area of the freezer door behind the water dispenser and taped it to the door with packing tape. For the past 3 weeks (even with freezer at #4 setting), my water is flowing freely. Personally, I think this solves a product defect with insufficient insulation in the freezer door near the dispenser water line.
