Make sure the wire arm is in the down position. If it is in the up position this signals the icemaker that the bin is full and icemaker shutsn off. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: GE GSS25LGM Ice maker not dispensing ice

You have one of three things wrong. The auger motor is frozen up, the ice bucket is broken or you need to dump out any ice, run warm water through the entire ice bucket, dry it out and try again with fresh cubes. My guess is the auger motor is frozen. You can buy a vinyl boot that covers the auger motor to prevent moisture buildup and freezing from GE Parts at 1-800-626-2002

SOURCE: How do I remove the ice/water access panel on GE

First, open door to freezer, while pushing in on the ice dispenser trigger look at the lights in the freezer and see if they go dim, if they do then the "main board" on back of frig is defective. This is a common problem with these boxes. Its somewhat uncommon for the ice, water and light to go out at the same time, its possible, but not common.

Another way to tell if main board is bad is when you do as stated above and you hear the evap fan stop then main board is for sure bad.

Let me know what you find out. If main board then I will need model & serial number to give you the right part number for main board.

If none of the above occur, then advise and I will tell you then how to pull dispenser apart.

Water dispenser not working GE model GSH25JSX13


Do you hear a slight buzzing when you try to get water?? If yes, you may have a frozen water line inside the freezer door. GE had some problems with those models. They offer a heater kit that has to be installed in the dispenser area of the freezer door. Once installed, in about a day the water line should be defrosted enough to dispense water again. If you don't hear that buzzing sound when trying to get water, you could have a bad inlet valve which is at the lower back of the refrigerator where your house water line hook to the refrigerator.

Fridge's water dispenser continues to run


Hello John;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

Neither your ice maker or water dispenser work off your main control board.

There is only one reason that the ice maker will not fill and you water dispenser does not shut off immediately after the contact switch disengages.

Your problem is low water pressure. You have a bad water valve.
After time the water valve seals fail, metal form the water line or corrosion plugs the water supply valve. You need at least 60 PSI water pressure to shut off the water dispenser solenoid valve and at least 60 PSI to open the ice maker water valve and fight the long fill tubing resistance.


Check - Pull your unit out where you can get behind it. Turn power off to your unit. Turn the water valve off. With towels under the unit water connection and a large bucket ready, disconnect the water supply line. With the water valve shut off you will probably get a steady stream of low water flow. The valve is bad. If not, open the water valve with the water line in the bucket. Is the water flow 60 PSI? Probably not.

Use a hair dryer to completely dry the solenoid valve and electrical area before you plug your unit back in

You need to replace the valve.

Before you do the above. Just in case you move your unit check for a bend or closure in the water line.

I just bought a used kenmore elite side by side refrigerator and hooked up the water line to the back of the fridge. My question is where does the long water line the goes to the fridge and comes back...


Where you hook the house water line is to the water inlet valve which is a one in two out solonoid controlled valve. One side goes to the water dispenser in the door and the other hooks to the ice maker connection.

So I suspect the long water line you are talking about has had the lines switched at the valve and needs reversed. The long line probably goes up the back of the unit and connects to the ice maker. The one for the water dispenser should hook to the water chiller resevoir and then to the water dispenser.

My GE side by side fridge doesn't dispense water.


When you press the handle, do you hear/feel a click?
Is this just starting to happen after a power outage?
Is the ice machine making ice? Dispensing?

Do you have/know how to use a multimeter to check voltages at the water valve solenoid?

Thanks!

GE GSS22JFMC when I press the water button it leaks


That's where the water line runs to get to the dispenser. You may have to remove the cardboard backing to see it. The line runs from the water inlet valve. That's where the supply line from the house connects to the fridge. One line goes up to the ice maker and the other goes over to the fridge side where it goes inside the fridge behind the crisper to a reservoir where the water is chilled before it goes to the dispenser. Look for the water coming out when someone else tries the dispenser. Look for a fitting that has come loose.

GE Fridge Not Dispensing water


First place to start is in the fridge. Look behind the crisper drawers for the water tank. It may have frozen at the outlet line. Try thawing it out with a hair dryer or a heat gun, being careful of course not to melt anything.
