Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

No water from dispenser

Changed filter; new filter is filling with water, but not making it to the door. Makes ice abundantly. Also, I hear no "click" when the lever is pressed in the water position. Could it be the button for "water" is broken? What else can we check?

    Water is making it to the filter, but not the door. Holding the water dispenser lever in for the recommended two minutes to remove air has not worked.

    Ice is abundant but water does not comes out of dispenser. In the solution, I did not follow how long the door needs to remain open. Please clarify.

    We left the door open for approximatey 40 to 45 total minutes in the #2 setting. Don't worry, the food won't thaw out. And we left the freezer control in setting #2 for about 3 hours. Then, raised it back to the #5 position. Does this help?

The water line was frozen. We turned the freezer back to setting 2 and opened the freezer door for two 5-minute intervals. Leaving the freezer door open, we time another 5-minute interval about 30 minutes later. And no....nothing thawed out in the freezer. When we tried the water, it worked! And much faster than before. We did not mess with the bottom of the fridge at all. About 2 hours later, we returned the freezer setting to 5. This morning the water is still flowing! Thanks for the tip and for saving me a $85 repairman bill. All of the tips were very helpful.

Water dispenser not working


Have you changed the water filter? they can plug up over time. The water tube can freeze in the door. To test this there usually is a disconnect under the freezer door side of the grill you can disconnect this and hit the water dispenser lever. If the door is getting water then it is frozen in the door. If not the water valve could be your problem there are two sides to the water valve one for the water dispenser and one for the icemaker. A last possibility is there is a water tank or tubing loop in the refrigerator behind the crisper this could have frozen.

Inside filter water dispenser suddenly stopped working. New filter removed and no working with or without filter . Water line is fine. Ice maker works.


Your water line could be frozen in the door. You can disconnect the line under the unit before it goes into the door at the bottom hinge. Push the dispenser button and see if it comes out there. If it does leave the door open till it thaws. Covering the opening with a blanket will prevent the loss of cold in the freezer. . GE makes a heater that will prevent this from happening again. The part number for this heater is WR49X10173.

disconnect the line to the water dispenser at the water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in and try the dispenser. if you hear the valve work but water doesn't come out, the valve is bad. If you don't hear the valve, the dispenser switch is bad

Sounds like your water valve may need changing, and has filled up with sediment, slowing the water flow.

I have an old Kenmore 26 side by side that dispenses water and ice. At one point it stopped producing ice and dispensing water. I changed the inline filter and it worked perfectly. Happened again shortly...


It sounds like you need to replace your water inlet valve , it is a dual valve for ice and water in the door and they go out often , the solenoid is not opening anymore , it is located where you hook up the water line.
Let me know if you have any other questions.

Freezer does not make ice


You need to check and see if ice maker has any water init. if not check the fill tube that goes thru the back wall for stoppage while you have it out rin the maker thru a harvest mode and listen for the sounds of the solonoid opening. If tube is full you'll need to replace the slow leaking valve a common problem. for parts call 704-819-6557
