If the unit has an ice maker or water dispensor, etc. there's always a chance a connection is loose or a valve is leaking by. If no other water is hooked up to the refer, then the defrost cycle water that should drain down to the bottom underneath pan is what is likely. You may have to take the inside rear panels off to see if the drain line is plugged up, that would allow water from the defrosting of the coils to drip inside the fridge vice outside like it should.

kjn, I think what happened here is that the automatic damper assy. is stuck in the open position. This is why everything froze in the refer area. This includes the water filter and cartridge. I would unscrew the filter cover and see if it's frozen in there. If you find the filter frozen, take a hair dryer and go over it lightly until it will unscrew. After that you will have to check to see if the damper is stuck. You should be able to hear it open and close by turning the control on and off. Or get a mirror and hold it at an angle in back to see the gates. Part number for the damper motor is 240440701. Not that hard of a job...Catriver.

Same thing happened to us. A baffle that conducts air from the freezer to the fridge gets stuck in the "open" position and needs to be replaced. That'll fix that problem but watch for others including the water dispenser that spontaneously begins blasting water across your floor. We've dealt with this twice.

SOURCE: Ge Fridge freezing in fridge area

The freezer should be set to 0 degrees and the fridge 37 degrees according to the manual. If your unit has only numbers then it would number 4 or 5 for the freezer and 6 or 7 for the fridge.

There may be an issue with the water dispenser line freezing in this model. The fix for it might be this dispenser water tube heater kit # WR49X10173. Hope that helps you out and best of luck

GE Water Dispenser not working


Sounds like the water tank in the fridge section froze and split open causing a leak. Plus, the water feed line to the dispenser has frozen where it runs up through the freezer door- guessing your trimmer line only goes about 5" into the tube?
There is a water line heater kit that GE makes : Refrigerator Heating Element WR49X10173 .
Then, buy two quick disconnects 5/16" and about 10 feet of 5/16" plastic tubing- use the tubing and disconnects to replace the cracked water tank and you should be good to go... Refrigerator Water Line 5210JA3004K

Water line keeps freezing on my GE side by side refigerator


Check to see if the water tank in the bottom of the refrigerator section is frozen. If it is, you will need to turn the refrigerator section temp down.

My ge profile arctica is about 9 years old. It is freezing food in the refrigerator, temp control is set at a 4 and the thermometer inside reads anywhere from 28 -40 in various areas of the fridge. Milk...


first run the diagnostics on the unit from the tech sheet inside the unit,then if thermistors are bad replace these there are 2 one on the left and one on the right wall in both fridge and freezer,if good per diagnostics then replace the electronic damper door located between the fridge and freezer compartments in the upper left hand corner of the fridge behind the plastic grille as these doors break and jamb open or shut and the temps can no longer be regulated during the diagnostics tests you can hear this door operate if its operating correctly,lastly,if these fail to solve your problem,replace the main control board in the back behind a panel

GE Refrigerator Model gss25sgrbss water line problem


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 .

Vegetable and meat draws freezing everything temp@16 deg. f.


Turn your thermostat down. If all the rest of the food was even 45 degrees, it would be okay. The vetable and meat drawers will always be colder, so you set the level for the rest of the fridge at what is tolerable.

GE fridge water leak


GE is a durable appliance and since you didnt provide more details you description states " the fridge sounds like its running water ". Thats good that means that the heater coil located within the walls of the freezer are doing their job. The water is traveling down to a drip pan under the fridge. This happens on a timed cycle in order to keep the ice from building up in the freezer compartment like it used to in the refridgerators long time ago.How well a job is it doing , maybe not so well ! Since you said " the ice dispenser is ALWAYS frozen over. That could be the freezer coil or it could also be the stop lever above the ice container which it is not telling the dispenser to stop producing ice.You can test it out by raising the lever to its upper most position.If it solves the over freezing then you dont have to replace it . But, In case you need to replace the motor assembly.Which is simple . First unplug the cable plugged into the back wall, and then remove the mounting screws.When you go buy the motor assemly be sure to take the BRAND, MODEL# , SERIAL# , DATE MFG which can be gotten from a plate on the inside wall And if that still freezes over unfortunately then the heater coil needs to be changed out by a tech which could be labor intensive (money wise that is). GE usually makes their product "owner friendly". You should ask the guy selling parts if he could show you an exploded view of where the heater coil is located and help give you tip on installing the coil. They have diagrams to show how and where it goes.Be sure and take note and sometimes the can help you over the phoneshould you run into a snag. At first it may seem difficult but once done you'll feel a sense of accomplishment and pride.

I'm just a home owner, not an expert. Could be a frozen line. I think GE has had problems with this. I think they've retro-fitted their doors with better insulation that prevents the lines from freezing.
