Question about GE GSH25JSRSS Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator
The light works when you depress the switch but I don't hear anything else.
I'd wager that the water line inside the freezer door is frozen keeping water from flowing.
Here's how to test my theory; Open up both doors and remove the "kick panel" (it's just snapped into place, so just pull on it). After that's done, look below the bottom freezer door hinge... you'll see the water tube there. Now, about 4" to the right of the hinge, you'll see a tubing coupler there. Disconnect (unscrew) it. OK, now just reach up there and depress the chilled water dispenser (like your gonna fill a glass). Did water come out of the tube near the floor? If so... the tube in the door is frozen.
The only fix for this is to completely defrost the fridge. (As in, unplug it for at least 24 hours) The reason is because there is no way to access the tube in the door... it's "foamed" in place and not serviceable.
I've heard of a trick you can employ after it de-ices to keep it from happening again. (Note, that I've never used this trick, but heard that it works, OK?) Alrighty then... when it's completely thawed and water is flowing like it should, cut yourself a piece of plastic cord (like weed-eater string but small) about 18"-24" long. Then you take this cord and feed it through the tube where the chilled water comes out of the dispenser. Feed it down the tube almost all the way leaving about an inch or so hanging out of the water dispenser.
OK... here's what is supposed to happen; If it ever freezes shut again, all you have to do is pull that string outta there. This will allow water to flow again. Then all you have to do is grab a huge cup (like a "big gulp") and fill it up. The water flowing through there will thaw out the frozen stuff and clear the line. After it runs free and clear again, just replace the cord and wait for it to freeze again.
Hope this helps! Let me know by rating this solution as "it solved my problem", will ya? Thanks!
