How to fix my Refrigerator water dispenser?

This is a duplicate post. To see the original post Click HERE
Water to the ice maker and to the dispenser are turned on and off by a coil on the dual water control valve. Unfortunately these coils cannot remain on for long extended periods of time. If the coils remain on for extended times they heat up and it's very possible that the coil on the water control valve for the dispenser has burned out. I'll get the part number and a description photo for you if you would like. I'm here and available for questions if you need any answers Thank You, John T. Appliance 911

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.

Ge Profile Arctica water will not dispense into ice maker.

Depending on how the water is connected to the house the incoming water could be your problem. If it is a piercing tap they can get plugged easily due to their small hole size. Check the flow of the water to the fridge, if it has good flow then I would look at replacing the water valve.

Fridge will dispense water and ice but will not make ice

You question " Fridge will dispense water and ice but will not make ice" If its not making ice then how its dispensing the ice. This is bit confusing me,-------- as per your question i assume you mean to say, that its dispensing the watyer but its not making ice. ------------

Ice maker stopped making ice. For this problem you have check few things. First thing, is the water filling in the ice maker chamber and then ice maker not making ice? Or, the water is not filling in the ice maker chamber so it's not making ice. If the water is not filling in the ice maker chamber then it's clear that ice is not getting made due to no water in the chamber. For no water filling, the problem is either water supply valve turned off so water is not filling. Turn on the water supply and it will fill. But if the water supply is turned on then the other possibility is ice blockage in the water fill tube. There is a tube from which the water runs and enters the ice maker chamber. If this tube is blocked then water will not enter the chamber. The tube needs to be defrosted, by using hair dryer. This procedure melts the ice collected in the tube and water starts running again. But if water fill tube is completely clear and no ice blockage or any other blockage. Then other possibility is water valve at the back of ice maker unit. This water valve is for letting the water in the ice maker. The water valve open only for 7 seconds and in this time the water fills in the ice maker chamber and then water valve closes and the same procedure runs again in the next water filling cycle.------- For your information I will mention that there are two valves. One is the main valve the back of the fridge section. This main valve lets the water enter the refrigerator and other valve is at the back of ice-maker section. This other valve lets the water to enter the ice maker. In most of the cases the fault is water valve at the back of ice maker section. ------------- The other above possibilities which I gave you is water not filling in ice-maker chamber so it's not making ice. But now consider that water is filling in ice maker chamber but it's still not making ice. Then the problem is ice maker unit itself. This unit is controlled by main board. But in most cases if water is filling the ice maker but it's not making ice then its faulty ice maker unit. So see if the problem is water not entering the ice maker then the water fill tube is frosted by ice or the water valve at the back of ice maker is faulty. Replace the valve. ------------

Ice dispensing motor (IDI Motor) inoperative

I had the same problem. GS6NBEXRS00 is 4 years old. Intermittently the ice dispenser would stall. Usually in crush mode, but occasionally stalled in cube mode. A sharp bang on the front of the door or the back of the ice dispenser from inside the freezer would get it working again for a short time. Went through the same steps you did. Replacing ice dispensing motor 2252130 fixed it.

GSH25KGRWW dispenses ice/water all by itself! Heard noise last night, and refrigerator was dispensing ice all over the floor!! Attempted to stop by tapping the lever, but this had no effect; pushed water...

as you explained that by opening the freezer door the problem stopped the problem is: that you have a pinched dispenser wire or, two in the area between the door and, the door opening
these wires are low voltage so they are not going to cause a fire
but, if they touch the cabinet due to a bare wire they will ground and, start running the dispenser.
the door cover needs to be removed and, the problem (usually at the door hinge must be found and, corrected i.e. wire taped, shielded etc.

Icemaker will not was dispense ice

My icemaker stopped producing ice. We turned off the water line to it when we went on vacation for a week. We turned the water back on when we got home and since that time it won't produce ice. We can still get water from the door dispenser though.

I had luck with a board with a clicking relay by replacing capacitors C29 and C30, which had bulged tops. Bravo, fridge works!
