Question about GE Profile PSW26P Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator
I have a GE GSS25LGMBBB side by side refrigerator that is about 7 years old. The Water dispenser is not working but it is making ice. I followed the advice to thaw a frozen water line. It now works BUT it starts and stops pumping water in mid stream.
I'm now officially out of my depth and need some help. But, it seems like an easy fix that I don't want to pay someone $200 to fix.
Thanks Water dispenser not working. Repair guy has repalced damper door and also now, the temp control unit in the refrigerator.
If the ice maker is working, and no water is coming out, the water line may be frozen. This happened to me yesterday, and I followed the advice on ehow.com. It worked like a charm! Take a hair dryer, and blow hot air up into the dispenser tube, holding the hair dryer about 8-10 inches away. After about 5 minutes or so, a tiny chip of ice and a couple of drops may pop out. Fill up a couple of glasses of water to flush it out, and you should be good!

My water despenser stopped working on my GE GSH25JFREWW model
My Solution: I took a blow dryer and blew it on my water despenser water pipe for about 5 minutes.... then I got a can of Air (Any can wiil do) the kind you blow away dust on your keyboard and computer. I use the straw that comes with the Air Duster and stuck inside the water desenser water pipe and shot air in it.... It felt like I struck OIL!! The water came gushing out.... All working fine... This worked for me... Hope this helps someone else.

Dont' waste your time with anything other than a hair dryer on the hinge side of the freezer door for about 5 - 10 mins. Took me 7. I've had this GE side by side for 7 years, the water flow always seemed low compared to other fridges I've encountered but it was passable. After my hair dryer defrost it's flowing better than ever. Wonder if that blockage started when I first got it.

On our GE Profile Arctica Model PSS26MGPA CC we had turned up the temperature to number 5 after returning to our Florida home. This temperature was too cold, freezing some of the contents on the refrigerator side. Shortly afterwards we could not get ice or water from the dispenser door. Thinking that we might have frozen the water lines we waited for over a week with no action from the dispenser. Finally we put in a new water filter and viola, everything works again. The water filter was still frozen after over a week.

The water fill valve in the back? Has 2 coils on it. 1 FOR ice make 1 for water in door. Check voltage to both of these with a volt meter. Usually 110V. If you get 110V when you push in the door water switch every time and it doesn't fluctuate more than 5 volts while holding the switch on (plunger in) the valve is most likely faulty.
If the voltage is not there then the door switch, the wiring to the valve coil, are suspect and can be eliminated.
Test the door switch and see if you can go around it and make the water come through and/or the voltage come to the back where the valve is.
If not the wiring is usually the only thing left and a rodent has probably paid you a visit.
If it does come on to the back when you wire around the switch the switch is faulty or the mechanism that actuates the switch is not getting the switch to close.
If this helps you please rate me accordingly. Good Luck.
