If the espresso coffee outputs too much water and doesn't stop, there is an easy fix. The quantity adjustment for the machine is off. After looking through the user manual, I found out that you could press and hold the espresso button, and then follow the on-screen instructions where you can specify the quantity poured.

Water dispenser stopped working. Water valve works


A major problem with the ge side by side refrigerators with metal liners is water freeze-up inside the door of the freezer. Short term repair is to heat the dispenser area CAREFULLY with a hair dryer right at the point where the water spout comes out.
The long term fix involves installing a heater in the dispenser part number wr49x10173 @$60. The kit comes with installation instructions..
Let me know if you have any questions!!
Good luck!

Ice maker works but water dispenser stopped working


There sould be a set of water control valves on rear of refrigerator and where the water comes into refrigerator dispenser and ice maker. When one goes bad you replace both. You can test the windings in each coil or test for voltage while someone presses dispense water.I will ty to locate one set with your model number. Sea Breeze

Water dispensor stoppedworking


If the light and ice dispenser on the front panel works and If your fridge is 4 years old or older, the insulation in the freezer door has most likely deteriorated and the water in the tube feeding the water dispenser has probably frozen. Open the freezer door, put a blanket over the food to keep it from defrosting, and use a blow dryer to defrost the door. Blow the hot air on the flat panel inside the door (the backside of the water dispenser). Close the door about every 5 minutes to check to see if the water works. Once the water begins to flow, you have successfully defrosted the ice in the tube. Defrosting the door works for about 12 hours until it freezes again. To solve this problem, I placed a 10" weedeater line up thorugh the dispenser nozzle leaving about 1/8 of an inch sticking out. When the line freezes again, pull out the weedeater line, dispense water to free the ice, and then reinsert the weadeater line. I keep the line in all the time...it works great! If the light or ice dispenser do not work, the problem may be *********** board.

Try checking the mesh screen which is in the water line where the water supply connects to the water inlet valve on the back. It can get stopped up with sediment.

Well, the solution to this problem was posted in this thread
http://www.fixya.com/support/t1295372-ge_profile_ref_ice_despenser_motor_not

It seems that the bulb in the front panel is pulling to much current as it ages and it makes the control panel in not work properly. Removing the bulb will fix the problem - just fixed mine.

Also seems to match your symptoms (works sometimes and then not others - bulb current is inconstent, light dims when dispense lever pressed - again wrong current draw).

Good luck
