Question about GE GSS25SGMBS Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Dispenser stops working

The water and ice dispenser will work for a few seconds and then stop, and the light will turn off. Sometimes it will not work at all. Is there a contact point in the door that can go bad. Or is it related to a motherboard in the door or back of the freezer? GE Maps my GSS25SGMC to GSS25SGMBS Dave

Ice and Water not dispensing. Light button not working
There's an ice- or water-dispensing problem The ice and water-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Many components work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from a simple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most other components are not user serviceable. We suggest that you contact a qualified appliance repair technician for such repairs.

Ice maker dispenser switch has stopped working - will not dispense ice or water. Can I repair myself? How do you gain access to the switch in the door?

If both have stopped working - it is likely the controller board that has failed.

The plastic trimring around the outside lip of the fountain is just snapped into place.

Start at a corner and gently pry it off.
Then there will be screws holding the assembly in place.

You will find the board behind the fountain.

No water

I was having the same problem.  I was told that the water line in the door is frozen.  I was told to open up the door and take everything off door and put towels in front and around the ice maker and the rest of the freezer to keep the cold in and  leave my door open and tape the light switch so it would turn off.  Then keep the door open, for 1-2 hours, I checked it in 1 and it still did not work so I continued for another and it now works just fine.  My ice maker was working but the water was not coming out of the dispenser.
