Re: water dispenser won't work

Could be a bad micro switch or the bracket that holds it in place is broken. Could be a bad water valve. In some rare cases could be a wiring problem. If you know how, you can check to see if your getting power to the water valve when trying to get water. If you have power and no water then the valve is bad. It's a dual valve. If no power to the valve then it's likely something to do with the microswitch or wiring.

Water dispensing into ice maker won't shut off

There should be a float or electronic water level sensor that will tell the water to shut off, if it has calcium from the water on it or the float is damaged it will keep sending water until manually shut off(pull the plug). I would look for a water level sensor of some sort and clean or replace it. If that doesn't work it could be a sticking water fill solonoid which you should then replace

GE GSH25JFRF BB ice maker doesn't dispense. Water dispenses and ice maker makes ice but won't come out.

There should be a plastice hinge cover on the left top hinge on freezer door. Take it off and press the plug together firmly. Try that and let me know, Sea Breeze

GE Refrigerator Ice and Water dispenser stopped working after power outage

More than likely the user interface board that controls that portion of the machine is probably bad, or, worse case scenario the main control board which has the overall say so for the machine has gone out which isn't uncommon either. My best advice is if your going to do it yourself buy your parts from because of their return policy which you can return any part you bought even if installed/

Water leak from ice dispenser line

Your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking. disconnect the water line coming out of it and see if you have a slow drip. Try the dispenser to see if it's just drips after use.

For the ice maker problem, Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.If it does, the problem is the ice maker and not the valve and line...

GE side by side fridge/freezer. Water stopped comming out the dispenser..


If your frig only has a dispenser for water, the first thing you need to check, is the shut off valve, which is sometimes under the kitchen sink, and make sure nobody turned it off for some reason.
If you have a frig that dispenses both ice and water, and only the ice is working but you aren’t getting any water, then it is probably the water side of the dual water valve that has gone out. A lot of times the water side of the valve will go out before the icemaker side, because it tends to be on longer due to people filling up glasses and pitchers.
If you hear water running when you try and get water, then you probably have a leak in the water line that goes to the dispenser.
Another thing that is rare is the water will freeze in the reservoir that is behind the crisper drawers in the fresh food compartment. This sometimes happens when it isn’t used enough.
