The part number for the valve for a pss26msrss is:
WR57X10032 it is around $45.00-$50.00. There are several look ups available but you need a complete model number that you will find on the refrigerator usually inside upper fresh food section. you can order at repairclinic.com, sears .com ... or you can google appliance parts and see what you come up with. You might also try a local appliance store. Good Luck.

Before replacing water valve open open back panel disconnected water line of water dispensser and tell some 1 to press water actuator on dispensor and check water pressure from it. If its slow then it can be valve or it can be filter housing. Repalce both if confuse.

Where are the duel water inlet valves located on ge fridge arctic profile


unless you have a water dispenser, top mount refrigerators usually only have a single inlet water valve. Either way, the valves will be located in the back on the machine and covered by the lower portion cover, but will have a small area for the water line to hook up. Just remove the lower panel in the back and you will be able to see it

Ice maker dont work


There are several things that can prevent and icemaker from working.
1- Temp in freezer. If the temp in the freezer is higher than 6 degrees the ice makers thermistat will not call for water.
2- Water inlet valve. If the inlet valve is malfunctioning the silinoid may not be opening. Even if you are getting water through the door.
3- Faulty ice maker. If the internal components of the ice maker are no longer functioning it wont make ice.

To test the inlet valve. In the back of the fridge is and access panel near the bottom remove this panel and look at the inlet valve. now you should see 3 hoses. One is usually copper and runs directly from the house water supply. There will be two other hoses from the inlet. One leads into the fridge for the water in door feature. The other is for the icemaker. Switch the two hoses from the ice maker ( water in door and icemaker) than push the water in door feature and see if the water goes into icemaker. If it does not than replace inlet. If does and temp in freezer is below 6 degrees replace icemaker.

If you need further assistance please comment me back.

The water from the door of my GE Profile fridge doesnt work consistently. Sometimes it does and sometimes is does not provide water. It has started dripping inside the freezer leaving icicles.What to do???


Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";} Your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking. disconnect the water line coming out of it and see if you have a slow drip. Try the dispenser to see if it's just drips after use.
You have two points where you can check the dispenser water. At the rear where the water supply comes in is the water inlet valve. If you disconnect the dispenser water line and then see if the water comes out when you try the dispenser. You should hear the valve work when you try the dispenser. If you don’t hear it there is a dispenser actuator switch problem. If you do hear it but water doesn’t work here there is a valve or water supply problem. If it's normal, disconnect it at the bottom of the freezer door and try again.If it's normal here it may be frozen in the door. If this is the case open the door till it thaws. A blanket over the opening will prevent thawing of all the food.

Water leaks from dispenser


Bad water filter or weak water inlet solenoid. Water line to back of fridge goes to inlet solenoid valve. Check it first. Would help to know the manufacture date. If it has a filter at bottom of fridge it will cause leaks and low pressure to dispenser if not changed each year.

Ice maker frozen, water leaks from bottom of refrigerator


I am assuming this is a refrigerator that has been in use for some time. The water line coming in is connected to a solenoid valve, this is activated when the icemaker cycling sends a signal for more water. There should be a downward tilt so the water drains from the inlet to prevent freezing of the line. If it is leaking low in the back where the water connects it may be that your solenoid valve is leaking and that you are not getting good water flow to the icemaker. Meaning two things no or very little ice and the possiblility of freezing.

Unless you know what a solenoid valve is and I suggest you call a repair man.

Leaking water from the ice maker


It is very unlikely that you have a leaking water line inside the fridge/freezer, as they are protected from damage. If you have water dripping from the ice maker inside the freezer and/or the dispenser in the door, the most likely problem is the valve that supplies water to the ice maker.

You'll need to replace the water inlet valve that supplies water to the ice maker. This is not the same valve that supplies water to the fridge (I believe the yellow colored valve) but rather, it is the blue valve, mounted just above the main water inlet valve.

At the bottom back right side of the fridge, you can remove the covering and see both the yellow and blue valves. The yellow one (on the bottom) is the incoming water control valve, while the blue (upper one) supplies water to the ice maker.

The part runs about $45-50 if you get it yourself, or around $185.00 for a repair person to come out and do the job for you. It should only take about 20-30 minutes to do it yourself with a small 1/4" nutdriver. Part available from Searspartsdirect.com or several other online and local stores. Just call around and give them your fridge model number and serial number, located on the inside of the fresh food section of the fridge - on the "ceiling" just inside the door.

Hope that helps.
