Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator
The water dispenser in the freezer door of our GE side-by-side refrigerator won't turn off. The problem originally occurred a few months ago, but subsided after a day or two. Now, the dispenser drips constantly at a very fast rate. I have had to shut off the water supply to the water/ice dispenser to keep from mopping up the mess every hour. Before it began running constantly, the water was dispensing very slowly. This also was a recurring problem. Now it won't cut off at all. One note - the freezer door was replaced about 6 months ago as part of a class-action suit against GE. Apparently, many others were having trouble with these refrigerators. Ours was originally replaced because the ice chute kept getting clogged with ice chips that would melt and refreeze. I'd trade my current problem for that one, if I could. Any/all suggestions are welcome. Thanks.
Stix: Check behind the dispenser handle the switch or button which is responsible to activate the mechanism of water dispensing. If the switch or button is covered with a reubber you must remove the rubber cap or whatever cover it has. If you have mineral oil or somekind of greasy stuff (vaseline or something similar) lubricate the switch or button. Open the freezer door and activate and deactivate the dispenser several times to lubricate the whole mechanism. SithPitt
