SOURCE: Water not getting to dispenser, but does get to ice maker.

Hi All,
The fix to the "GE/Hotpoint Secret" frozen water dispenser problem is the Dispenser Water Tube Heater Kit, P/N WR49X10173 that can be purchased at Sears. Just a few bucks. My Hotpoint (model HSM25GFRA5A) had the same issue and GE would not tell me anything but required a technician to come out. The technician had no clue but after making some calls found the heater at Sears and ordered it delivered to me. He had to setup a return appointment but I canceled it after getting the parts and fixing it myself. The instructions are in the kit. Since most all GE/Hotpoint refrigerators (same model group of course) use the same parts/assemblies this will work for lots of folks. See pic below. If the area behind the cover looks like this it may be the part. Feel free to email me for help on this (rkjobe@military.com). Piece of cake.

SOURCE: Water dispenser not working

2 things i want you to try before you call a tech out first under frezer door there is a connector where the 2 lines connect disconect both off now actuate the water at door if you get water out the line that means your line inside door is frozen 2 if you don't get water that means your water reservour is frozen so to solve problem cheapest way is to derost it by unpluging it for maybe 2 days and if it was frozen it should go back to normal and this time keep your temps in right settings refrigerator section at 37% and freezer from 0 to 4 % at all times that will keep lines from freezing

SOURCE: GE GSS25LGMF Water dispenser-no water

Order and install a WR49X10173 water tube heater. It may take 24 hours to then thaw, but it has worked for me on numerous refrigerators. Cost for the part will run about $50.

Everything normal on my GE Profile Model PFSF6PKWBBB French door bottom freezer refridgerator except the water dispenser just quit dispensing water. Is it frozen? How do I fix it?


The paddle that you push the glass against to dispense water activates a microswitch. Sometimes this switch can break off it's mount and drop away from it's intended position. The microswitch operates a solenoid valve near where the water line enters the back of the fridge. Then there's the wiring in between them. The water line doesn't go through the freezer. It runs through the refrigerator in a coil of tubing then into the door of the dispenser. Check the paddle switch, the water solenoid and the wiring and you'll find the reason it doesn't work

Water dispenser not working


!!BE CAREFUL!! High Voltage.
Try applying power to the solenoid for the water tap. Should be two of them one for the ice maker and one for the water dispenser. They will usually be mounted in the rear bottom on the other side of where the water supply line is connected. 25269512-pjjowy2zt3xf3430cawieg0f-2-0.jpg
Example ^^. If it triggers put a meter on it to see if it energizes when you press the water dispense button.

Why does water dispenser stop working? Seems to work fine after thawing freezer for about a day and seems to freeze up. Water line for dispenser routes through the door.


The water is door spigot can be freezing up if the ice door is stuck open. When you actuate your ice in door function you hear a solenoid CLICK. That solenoid is supposed to open the ice door flapper. If the flapper is not funtioning correctly (stuck open) then in as few as as 2 - 3 days your water in door can freeze again. If you want unit specific information we need your make and model number to better help you.

Thanks for hoosing FixYa,

I have GE Modle GSH25JSXB SS side by side refrigerator and i am not getting any water in the water dispenser. Please help.


I have to assume from your description that your icemaker still works, you checked that you still have water running to the appliance, and that the board switches between functions.

The common causes for this issue are either the water cooling coil freezing up. This is located in the fresh water side of the refridgerator. Make sure it is free of obsrtuction and check the temp setting for the fridge.

The micro switch that tells the solenoid valve in the rear of the fridge to open and let water through. If you push in on the dispenser arm you should hear two clicks. The first is the switch, the second is the solenoid opening. If you do not hear the second click the microswitch is bad. Again this is assuming that you still have icemaker functionality.

Last, the line inside the freezer door is frozen. If you remove the grill under the front of the fridge and disconnect the water line coupling you can then press in on the dispenser arm and water should come out of the tube. If it does then the obstruction is in the tube traveling inside the door. It is most likely ice.

Hope that helps.

Water dispenser not working. The ice dispenser will work but the water will not. I held it down for 2 minutes to be sure there was no water in the line but its still not working. We also changed the filter...


Check in the back wall of the refrigerator section and confirm the water dispenser reservoir is not frozen.

Listen for the solenoid valve to click when actuating the water dispenser. If no click check the solenoid valve.

The wires for the switch are in the door hinge of the freezer. Confirm that they have not failed.

Hope this is a helps?

No water is coming out of the dispenser, but the ice maker seems to work. I have already changed the filter and checked for air trapped in the line. Any ideas?


If you can't hear the solenoid on the water inlet valve(it's on the back where the water supply hooks up) when you try the water then the water switch on the dispenser is at fault.

If you do hear it 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.

If it doesn't come out there disconnect it at the water inlet valve and see if it comes out there.

Ge gsl25jfrfbs water disoenser not working


Solenoid or the dispenser switch.

The water supply line connects to a water valve on the Ref. this water valve has two solenoids, one for the ice maker and one for the water in the door. Check this solenoid with an OHM meter.

The dispenser switch should send 110 volts to the solenoid. Check at the solenoid while pushing the water switch in the door.

Water dispenser will not work when lever is pressed. we had an intermittent problem with it before it stopped working altogather.I was going to look at it but was afraid to pop off the trim on the outside...


This could be a bad water valve in the frig. This frig has a double water valves. One for the ice maker and one for the water dispenser. It should be in the lower back. Where the water line goes in. You can check this valve easily. Find the double water valve on the frig. Turn off water supply to frig first. Swap the plastic water lines going from the water valve into the frig. Turn water supply on. Then see if the water dispenser works. Sometimes you will have to operate the water dispenser for a little while to get the air out of the line. If it works now then the problem is in the water valve solenoid and needs to be replaced.
