SOURCE: water does not dispense from door

I found that the door on the GE side by side doors are not accessable and cannot be repaired if a water line inside the door is defective. The entire door must be replaced at a cost of almost $370. The problem, which seems to be quite common relative to the lack of water at the dispenser, is the result of the water tube in the door freezing due to excess cold levels in the freezing compartment. This is probabley due to poor insulation around the water line as in exits near the ice dispenser gate. The solution is simple, lower the freezing level and use water frequently to keep it from freezing. Also, keep the lines clean by changing the filter often if the local water source is laden with particulates. I think GE should foot the bill for changing doors or re-engineer the doors to access the area where the water line makes contact with the cold surface of the inside panal.

If there is a reset button on your ice maker try pushing it. Many ice makers have two holes for reset. A general rule of thumb is if the ice maker fingers are stopped in a slightly vertical position then your ice maker unit is working. If the fingers are stopped anywhere else then it needs some sort of attention or replaced. Make sure there is water, or ice in the ice maker tray, if not then the problem is with water supply.

SOURCE: Viking freezer leaking

you have a clogged drain, it is either clogged with ice or some kind of debris, thaw the freezer out and push a length of weed trimmer line down the drain. The drain is accessible by removing the back wall of the inside of the freezer. If there is no clog then the drain may be freezing up, if that is the case, take a piece of 14 gauge romex wire and loop it several times around the heating element at the bottom of the evaporator and push a few inches of it into the drain, this will get hot and transfer heat when it goes into a defrost cycle which is where the water is coming from in the first place

Bottom mount Freezer Iced up


if you have frozen water droplets on everything most likely the door was left open and when the warm air mixes with the cold air in the freezer this happens,look at the top of the door or the sides of the freezer door,also up on the ceiling where the light switch is,if there's ice there the door was left open,common problem with freezers on the bottom,you can shut down the machine,and with a hair dryer blow the hot air into the vent holes in the back inside wall of the freezer and if ice is on ceiling melt that out too.good luck.

The door on the bottom of my freezer will not pull open. Ice has been building up in the bottom for some time. We were away for 1 week and now it will not open. I have shut off the freezer for more than...


If it is ice holding the door closed, you might use a hair dryer and a putty knife. Heat the blade of the putty knife with the dryer and work your way around the seal. If that doesn't work, then you probably have an ice buildup on the rails and will have to defrost the unit - Hope the freezer isn't full of food! You can hurry the defrost up some by using the hair dryer blowing down the fan exhaust hole.

When you finally get everything open, you should check the condition of the door seals, make sure the evaporator fan is operating (if circulated the cold air up and also remose the humidity from the freezer).

You may can adjust your cut off lights or wire cut off to cut off before it's so full.

Bottom Freezer has ice built up


Possibly the defrost element is faulty, this is located behind a cover in the back of the freezer compartment and is attached to the fins of the evaporator. It also has a defrost limit thermostat which could also be the problem. I presume that the fan is working after you have defrosted the unit?

Refrigerator and freezer not cooling/freeding


Possibly a defrost circuit problem -

1) Bad defrost thermostat
2) Bad defrost heater
3) Bad defrost timer
4) Failed evaporator fan motor.

Look for frost accumulated inside the louvers at the back panel, top and bottom. If you see it, remove food from freezer and put in ice chest. Take out shelves, get hair dryer and warm the backside of the freezer, directing air down the louvers. Then leave to sit for 4-6 hours with the freezer door open. Put towels in the bottom of the freezer to catch any melted ice.
After period of time, plug unit back in and power the unit back up. Once you know it's cooling, empty ice chests back into freezer.

If there is a problem in any of the above components, then it will show up in 3-4 weeks witht he same problem again.
