GE GSH22JFRE WW not dispensing ice

A few weeks back i noticed my water and ice dispenser on my refrigerator was not working. Now the water is working and it is making ice, but not dispensing any. When i push down on the lever the light dims and it seems to shut off almost. When i let up on the lever the light seems to come on stronger and it sounds like something is starting like a fan. I have GE coming this thursday but would like to try to fix it myself before. BTW the ice door opens when you press on lever. It seems like the arm in the back will not turn. Thanks, Debbie

Re: GE GSH22JFRE WW not dispensing ice

Deb, sounds like your dispenser control board has given up the ghost. The boards come in 2 models, 4 button and 5 button. The 4 button part # is WR55X10443 (~$87.00)... the 5 button part # is WR55X10437 (~$97.00). Not too difficult to replace. UNPLUG YOUR FRIDGE!!! Remove the drip tray from the dispenser, and any screws hiding in there. Then, using a flat screwdriver and starting at the bottom of the fascia, pry the fascia away from the door and remove. Then remove the screws holding the control in place and disconnect any wiring. (Don't forget to pay close attention to WHERE the wires connect and HOW the wires are routed!) Then install the new board and rebuild. Approx. repair time for your first one is ~1 hour. Good luck!

Re: GE GSH22JFRE WW not dispensing ice

My fridge is only a couple of years old, not making ice (or even hearing any sound when lever is pushed in); now the freezer isn't freezing things, just keeping them cold and fridge doesn't seem to be as cold as it

Re: GE GSH22JFRE WW not dispensing ice

Hey Deb, the first thing I would check is the Ice dispensor bin is blocked. If you have water and ice but the ice is not dispensing, that is the first thing I have my clients check. all it will cost you is the ice in the bin. once you empty the bin just use hot water to melt any ice that is jammed drier with a paper towel and re instal. if it is more than that the GE tech should catch it.

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.

Water is not dispensed, but ice maker works. This keeps happeneng . what can i do myself? model number GSH22JFRE SERIAL LH206147

It appears that GE has a problem with the water line to the water dispenser freezing up. I solved the problem by turning on the light on the dispenser. (Note, it is not an LED bulb). After about a day and a half the water began to flow again. Have not had a problem since then

I have a GE Refrigerator GSS22JFMD WW with a ice

The water supply in the recessed part of your door is frozen. very common with this model. You will need to turn unit off and with freezer door open use hairdryer on the area where water dispenses and on the recessed area as well. This is time consuming but only other remedy is to leave off and door open for 24 hours. hope this helps.

Ice & Water Dispenser Suddenly Dysfunctional; LED lights, too!

Cory, you sound like you have a bad water valve as well as a bad control board for your dispensor. If you've had any storms in your area in the past 4 - 6 weeks, it's very possible that the storm took both parts out.

We have parts for GE as well as mots other major brands, so please give us a call with your complete model number and we will get your parts out to you right away!

We hope this solves your problem and we look forward to being able to assist you with future issues.

Have a great evening.

My GE Refrigerator Clicks for hours but will not start.

Clicking you describe sounds like a bad motherboard. Water dispenser issues have been result of frozen water in the tubing in the bottom of the FF area, which you should not have at the moment, so if it is not dispensing water now I'd check the water valve coil. (there are two coils on the inlet valve, one for the icemaker and one for the water dispenser.)
