SOURCE: clciking noise

I was having the same problem.

I read on fixya that there is a reliability issue with many models.

I called GE customer service. They sent a repair guy who swapped out the motherboard at no charge even though it was out of warranty.

Works great now.

2 of my neighbors' friges went out in the summer here in Las Vegas. They both lost all their food.

He said I was lucky because after the clicking noise begins, the motherboard usually crashes the next day. Mine clicked for a month.

SOURCE: jenn air jcd2389g side by side refrigerator water leak

sounds like a leak where your incoming water line hooks to the water valves might just need to tighten the coupling or a mouse has chewed through one or both of the lines access the lines on the back and watch while some one gets water out the door to locate the leak

common low flow is a kinked line or a bad water valve, the solioid valve has a filter that may be dirty. then go from there

SOURCE: Hissing noise in freezer

When you observe this is your compressor quiet? Then most likely your refrigerator is in defrost mode. The water is coming off the evaporator (think of a very cold radiator) as the defrost heater element warms. This element is similar to the electric heating element in the bottom of your electric oven. the water hits it and it will hiss. This is part of the normal operation of a refrigerator. The defrost cycle usually lasts from 20-30 mins and will occur 4-6 times a day. If you are having trouble with frozen food melting then re-freezing, or the temps are on the warm side, you might need to have your defrost timer or defrost termination switch looked at.

SOURCE: no water is being dispensed from the water

Start by : at the bottom of the freezer door ( remove the kick plate ) , there will be a water line . Follow this line , about 6 " to a connector . Push in on the white ring and pull out the line , at the same time . Activate the water dispensor pad and see if water flows from the line under the refrig . If it does , then the line in the door is frozen . Either raise the freezer temp for several days , so the line in the door will thaw , or , I have heard using an air tank will blow the ice out of the line in the door . If no water comes from the line under the refrig , while activating the pad , then replace the water valve , behind the refrig , the piece the wall water line connects to on the refrig . Ge also has a dispensor heater , pt # WR49X10173 , with instructions , to keep this freezing from happening again , if this is the problem .

Old filter in and water started to sputter, made clunky noises and flow very slow. Removed filter and used plug - water ran fine not filtered.- Replaced with new Maytag filter and water sputtered, flow...


Hello there, when new filters are fitted usually they are expected to spurt for a little bit before they normalize and begin to flow properly. Dispense water continuously for 10 minutes. This usually arises when the flow of water through the unit not being allowed through properly and usually takes the new filter a couple of minutes to get accustomed to the water flow and get water circulating through all its components hence the spurts. Alternatively you can check to ensure that the water supply is turned on full and the filter is properly fitted. If all of these are in place then the dispense mechanism might be faulty.
Hope this support has been helpful?

Water dispenser on refrigerator not working but ice maker is making ice


Most likely a frozen line... If you can hear a faint pump noise near filter when you try to dispense wate, that tells you the pump is woking. rIt could be a frozen reservoir(located on fridge side behind vegetable bins) or the line that runs thru freezer door to the dispenser. Use a hair dryer to thaw out reservoir or try to turn off the unit for a few hours. (That did it for me). If it's the line in freezer door, shut off unit, open freeezer door for a few hours and seal off freezer with a towel or cardboard to keep all frozen. If not this, may be a clogged water line from filter or a bad valve.

Water leaking from bottom of fridge. Hissing noises coming from inside. Trying to figure out how to disconnect water


There is usually a water cut off , behind the refrig , mounted on the wall , or , a cut off under the sink , connected to the cold water line ( with a small cut off valve ) .
The hissing noise , is usually associated with a hole or cracked water line . You can also try removing the ware filter , to see if the noise stops .
Would need more info , to have an idea where the water line is defective .

No water, no ice-LG LFD21860ST


Sound like a water supply problem, as both get water from the same source. Both valves are connected to the water line that supplies water to the frig, in the back, bottom, behind the cardboard cover. Make sure the water valve is on for that line. The noises indicate thew valves are probably working, but are not getting any water.

Change water filter and water won't dispense


Was water dispensing before filter was replaced? If it was then maybe filter needs to be purged to get air out of line. Only 3 other issues it could be. 1. water valve coil on back of fridge is bad. 2. Water reservoir is frozen up behind shelves in freezer section. 3. Your microswitch behind dispensor cover isnt activating water valve coil. Not much else could be the problem. Start with the valve

Water / hissing noice


Sounds like the water-supply fitting/connection going into the icemaker is leaking. It needs to be removed and fitting/hose tightened/repaired/etc.
