Question about GE PSW26SGRSS Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Water Dispenser works intermintently, Ice dispenser never works

I have a GE Profile (PSC23SGRDSS) side by side fridge with the Arctica front ice and water dispenser. About 50% of the time when I try to get water it will work. When I try to get ice the lights dim and the motor will not turn and no ice will come out. The temperature setting are working great. There are lots of ice cubes in the bin, just the dispenser doesn't work. I think it's most likely the board, but I'd like a little advice from an expert. Thanks

    I have the exact same problem. This has been happening for the past 2 years. Now the refrigerator makes a sound like the motor is giving out.

    GE PSC23SGRD Side by Side. Getting same problem, lots of ice being made but dispenser for both water and ice is working intermittently (actually don't recall when ice dispenser last worked so symptons could be identical to mikemallett's). Light is working, but getting dimmed light when switch is engaged -also notice the panel LEDs go out when press the switch. When I press the dispenser switch, I can hear a solenoid being activated in the back of the fridge, but that's it, no pump or anything like that is being activated. Since this is happening for both water and ice settings, I think I can rule out line freezing as being the cause. Lot's of pressure when things do work, so I know the pump itself is fine and the waterline is okay. I can only presume this is a circuit board problem, but before I spend a bunch on money on a service repair, I was wondering if anyone has any experience with this or can offer up a solution? -Thanks.

Called GE Service Dept. My refrigerator was way out of the warrant period. They came out and replaced the main circuit board at NO CHARGE.

Water dispenser is not working. Ice dispenser is working

If your model is the PSS25MGMWW and the water dispenser is not workingthe problem is most likely the=> WR57X10026 Water Inlet Valve Most times the ice dispenser and water to the ice maker will continue to work properly while the half of the water control valve will fail and stop water to the dispenser or ice maker. Follow the instructions in the video and I will be here if you have questions, Thanks Sea Breeze

GE Profile Arctica PSS25SGNA BS Icemaker is not working seems to be filling with water but no ice.

The water dispenser and ice maker side run separate sides of the water control valve. Fill ice maker with tap water and let it freeze. If it dumps the ice then does not refill then the water control valve is the problem. I will be back soon with a photo and some links, Thanks, Sea Breeze

GE Profile Fridge Model No. PSC25MSWA SS not making ice

Check to see if there is any obstruction (object of any kind) in the ice cube mold area. If nothing found, you will have to replace the icemaker, as individual repair parts are not available.
