Do you get water to the connector at the bottom of the freezer door ? if you do then the water pipe in the door is probably frozen - read new door ! if not then check thw electrical connector at the bottom of the freezer door as they have a habit of corroding.

Ice Maker working, but water not dispensing

There are two sides to a dual water control valve. One side fills the ice maker and the other side is the dispenser. If one side goes bad you will need to replace the whole dual water control valve. If your model is the GSL22JFXLB your replacement is the=> WR57X10032 Water Inlet Valve

This part is found on the rear of your refrigerator near floor where the water from your home hooks up to your refrigerator, Thanks Sea Breeze

GE Fridge water dispenser working but not the ice

Yes you most likely have a defective dual water control valve. Look around the inside of the refrigerator for a model number.

  • Top Freezer
  • Bottom Freezer
    Once you find the model number I will be able to tell you what part number the dual dual water control valve is or if your ice maker assist you in testing ice maker. If ice Maker is empty try filling with tap water to top edges of ice maker, allow water to freeze and if the ice drops into the ice bin but does not refill with water automatically I would say that the dual water control valve will need replaced. If your ice maker has old shrinking ice from a few days ago it will point to an ice maker problem.
    Thanks, Sea Breeze

    I have a Kitchenaid model ksrk25 that the water dispenser does not dispense water and the ice maker that was working has stopped making ice

    It is rare that both sides of the water control valve go bad at the same time, but possible. I will need someone to examine the dual water control valve on rear near floor on the back of your refrigerator. Click here for a=> KSRK25FVBL00 Parts Manual Test the dual water control valve with a multi meter set for 120 VAC and place the probes into the wires that attach to the dual water control dispenser side and have someone press the water dispense control in fountain. With the dispense water pressed look for voltage on your multi-meter. Use care not to touch probes or bare wires to prevent getting shocked while testing. If you do not already have Adobe Reader on your computer click here first=> Adobe Reader X (10.1.1) You can also check the water control valve for ice maker by testing the ohm value first by removal of the front cover on ice maker and then placing the test meter probes in to the N and V opening You should get 150 to 350 ohm's of resistance. Also if your ice maker is dry and has no water then fill with tap water and then allow to freeze. If Ice drops into ice bin and then does not refill with water will point to repacing the water valve. If the clip is not below this post click here=> Broken Ice Maker Repair You also can find parts and user manuals by clicking HERE Sometimes the ice maker is the problem with the water control valve not working on the ice maker side. 2198597 Ice Maker Assembly Watching the clip is really a great way of explaining how to test ice maker and replacing water control valve if needed. If helpful please rate this solution and if you have questions I will be here to assist you, Thanks Sea Breeze

    Water in door but none to ice maker-why

    couple of things to check make sure there is no obstruction where the fill tube comes into the icemaker... if ice builds up in plastic tube it will not allow to come into ice maker... if there is ice there most likely the water valve is not closing all the way... these are normally dual water valves meaning one solenoid goes to ice dispenser /water dispenser and the other works the ice maker good luck

    My roper side by side ice maker does not work. I replaced the part on back which directs water to the ice maker and water through the door. I get water through the door, but ice maker still does not work....

    Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

    See if the ice maker starts working when it dumps the ice.
