SOURCE: water dispenser system

the dispenser in the freezer door has a small low temp heater surrounding the dispenser compartment to keep this from happening, and also to keep condensation from building up around the dispenser. this heater may have stopped working.

SOURCE: water does not dispense from door

I found that the door on the GE side by side doors are not accessable and cannot be repaired if a water line inside the door is defective. The entire door must be replaced at a cost of almost $370. The problem, which seems to be quite common relative to the lack of water at the dispenser, is the result of the water tube in the door freezing due to excess cold levels in the freezing compartment. This is probabley due to poor insulation around the water line as in exits near the ice dispenser gate. The solution is simple, lower the freezing level and use water frequently to keep it from freezing. Also, keep the lines clean by changing the filter often if the local water source is laden with particulates. I think GE should foot the bill for changing doors or re-engineer the doors to access the area where the water line makes contact with the cold surface of the inside panal.

SOURCE: Icemaker works; water dispenser not

You can get to it, it is just a matter of figuring which valve has gone bad. You may need to disconnect different lines and actuate the water dispenser to see if water comes out of the valve. You gain access to the valves from behind the machine by removing the access panel that is at the bottom

SOURCE: GE Refridgerator Not Dispensing Water

The waterline inside the door is frozen . Best way to thaw is .....1. open the door and tape the light switch down to keep the light off and the fan working . 2. tape plastic (trash bag , drycleaning bag..etc) over the entire freezer opening so the food will not thaw and the fridge will continue to work as designed . If possible 3. disconnect the water coupling behind the kickplate so air can enter , helping the door defrost cycle , or , leave the coupling connected and ocasionally walk by and press the water dispensor to see if thawed . 4. turn your freezer setting to a lower temperature ! to keep this from happening again .

Water will not dispence in ge refrigerator model number gsl25jfpa bs


Your line is frozen. Frozen water dispenser line is a problem with this model. There are number of solutions.

1. Contact GE 800 386-1215, option 5 and ask for WR49X10173 heater kit. There is a video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BdNX3LteJTw to help you install it. Try to get GE to send you the fix free.
2. Get a hair dryer and heat the dispensing box until the water dispenser works. This is not a permanent solution, though, and it takes 15 to 30 minutes. Hang a long beach towel or blanket over the open freezer to save the cold air.
3. Place a long, clean fishing line or weed wacker line up the water dispenser line. When it freezes, pull carefully to dislodge the frozen water.
4. Buy another brand of refrigerator and let GE know they make inferior products.

Will not dispence water


My water dispensor INSIDE the door froze up.
I payed a repair guy $75 to use MY BLOWDRYER to "thaw" the frozen water line INSIDE the freezer door (below the water dispenser).

He said anytime the frozen food extends over the freezer shelf and touches the freezer door for a long enough period of time, the water line inside the door FREEZES!!

PREVENTION: "Keep some airspace between the door and frozen food."

How do i access the ice dispencer door in the door? The door is stuck open and freezes up the dispencer.


1. Disconnect the unit from the electrical
supply and wait for 3 to 4 hrs to get ice melted.
2. Pull out and unclip the drip tray on the ice
and water dispenser compartment.
3. Remove the screws from the ice and water
dispenser compartment front panel and
turn it over. The selector switch pack and
dispenser switches are now accessible for
testing.

No water from dispenser and ice


you can disconnect the water line on the bottom of the door behind the kick panel then test the water dispencer if water comes out of the line then there is a blockage of frozen water in the tube in the door.make usr eto disconnect the water line coupler completely
if no water comes out then there is a chance the main water supply valvle is bad. in rare occassions the water lines inside the fridge can freeze.ice in the door can be defrosted by using a blow dryer and blowing air inot the bottom and top of the tube however this process takes some time.sometimes using a long piece of weed eater line and pushing it through the tube can sometimes free up the ice as well this als take alot if time.

WATER WILL NOT DISPENCE FROM WATER DISPENSER


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. .

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

Water dispencer want work


yes the filter will keep water from dispensing but the best way to see if it is it is take your kickplate off under your doors and you will see a water line coupling unhook it there by putting your fingers on each side the line and pulling back on the coupler then put the line in a glass or bowl and push in on your dispensor paddle if you have water there then call a authorized technician cause it is frozen inside the door

I have a Kenmore model 106 9555710 SxS - no wate through door


check inside the bottom of the refrigerator for water, the water line goes thru the back of the refrigerator and it may have cracked and leaking inside instead of going to the dispenser.
if not then water is most likely frozen in the line going thru the back of the refrigerator. look behind the pans in the refrigerator and there should be a coil of clear plastic water line, this is the reservoir that chills the water for the dispenser. sometimes it will freeze up if the refrigerator is very cold.
