Question about GE GSS20IEP Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Water dispenser will come on at random times

I have a GE GSS20IEPH WW side by side refrigerator/freezer, and the water dispenser will turn on randomly and allow a steady stream of water to flow out until I turn the water off.  When this happens, it makes the sound like someone is pushing the lever to allow the water to flow out, but no one is pushing anything.  Because it only happens at random times, I have a hunch that it may have something to do with the timing for letting water into the ice maker.  Any thoughts?

Are you talking about the lever where you put your glass to get water or the ice compartment if it where you put your glass to get water it could be that if the pressure is not strong enough to close the valve after you have taken a glass of water or a defective solenoid vavle thanks from gilles

I have a GE Refrigerator GSS22JFMD WW with a ice


The water supply in the recessed part of your door is frozen. very common with this model. You will need to turn unit off and with freezer door open use hairdryer on the area where water dispenses and on the recessed area as well. This is time consuming but only other remedy is to leave off and door open for 24 hours. hope this helps.

The water will stop for about a month then start up randomly for 6 months then stop again. GE side by side GSL25JFPBS


These models have a problem with the water line freezing in the door. Leave the light on in the water dispenser part to keep the line ice-free.

You might want to turn the freezer temp up a bit as well. Not sure whether food items resting against the door may have some impact on the problem.

Rust ruining door at lower corners of ice/water dispenser.


when you dispense ice or water, you are allowing the drip tray to overfill and the water builds underneath the tray until the water reaches the point were it will leak down the front of the door. the water will rust the panel beyond repair. you will have to replace the whole door at this point. hope this helps.

its possible that your water tank has frozen up, try turning the refrig off and leave the doors open for about 10-15 mins and try it again. if that works just reset temp controls a little lower..

The fill valve that supplies the water may not be shutting off completely. Also check to see that the lever is closing completely.
