GE GSS22sgrf ss - Side-by-side refrigerator

The problem started with the frige not dispensing water or ice... when trying to get ice or water the lights would dim but nothing would come out... Then, about a week later it stopped cooling and with this it started clicking like crazy. The clicking noise is coming from the back behind icemaker behind the light. If I open the frige/freezer doors, the lights are on and if I adjust the temp controls the frige/freezer will cool again for a while but it eventually stops. The frige is only 2 years old byt is out of warranty except for the sealed system (compressor, condenser, evaporator). My dad says the compressor is working because the frige is cooling. I will call GE for service if this problem sounds like it's under warranty otherwise i will call Sears. Please advise... Thanks!

    thank you for your input! i didn't purchase at sears, but i know they have good service. the only reason i considered GE was just in case something is still covered under warranty.

    Sounds like a short in a wire and may be also service to ice maker and hands on technical attention. With the combined symptoms I would honestly be shooting in the dark to give advice without having the fridge in front of me. I think sears has shown quality sales and service over many years, and if I was having the same problem I would want the tech. there doing the job.

    I apologize I wasn't able to resolve the problem on-line, Sea Breeze

Last night, I connected an active water line to the back of my Kenmore side by side. The ice maker is making ice but water water and ice is not coming out of the dispencer. There is another water jug...


You have a dual water inlet valve where your water supply connects. One goes to the ice maker and the other goes to the water dispenser by way of the water reservoir you mentioned in the fridge.

Open the door and hold the door switch down and try the ice dispenser. Do you hear any thing.You should hear the ice door open and the augur motor turning to turn the augur which pushes the ice out the door. If the augur doesn't turn Take all the ice out of the bin and try. perhaps the motor is too weak or the augur is locked up. Take the bin out and try to see if the motor will turn with no load. The motor is behind the back cover where the bin sits. See if you get power to it using a voltmeter when you try the dispenser. If you are, probably bad motor. If not ,dispenser switch or solenoid is not working.

When pushing ice dispenser on GE side by side light dims and nothing happens


sounds like a large current draw is causing the light to dim most likely the cause is a build up of ice around the auger motor or the auger is seized.

GE Profile Artica - Water & ice dispensor not working.


This could be as simple as the door switch or as complex as the dispenser control board. I would try the door switch first. When the door is close it turns on the dispenser controls. If the contact is defective in the door/light switch then this happens. Unplug remove the door switch and mark wire locations. 1 Powers the lights and the other powers the dispenser. and one is the power itself. Sea Breeze

Re: Dispensing water and Ice


the water valve is located behind the frige, remove the lower back panel and follow the water line from the house to the frige as that line meets the frige that's the valve that may be bad,but before you change it, you can test it, remove one of the 2 lines that goes to the side of the frige and push the switch to get some water, water should come from back there, if not re move the other line, it meant that the first line belong to the ice maker, try the other one now, it should give you water. if not replace the valve.

Ice maker not working


The icemakers won't make ice if the temperature is not below a certain set point. Varies between manufacturers. Try making the temp colder.

Your problems are the power board for sure. I have the same refrigerator and have read dozens of forums and advise pages looking for answers. If you let the problem countinue your fridge will completely stop cooling and all your food will be trash as has happened to me.

Symptoms: Fan in the back starts to make click or flopping sound as it tries to start up. Ice despenser doesent despense ice. water works sometimes. Eventually you notice your food defrosting partially and then refreezing as the defrost timer stops working which is controlled by the power board. Light dims and pulses when you hold the Ice despencer in. If you remove the light for the dispencer your water will work fine as long as the fan isnt making the clicking noise. Fan will eventually start up and run.

FYI GE customer Care is useless

The water and ice dispenser is not working, the light goes on and off to normal and dim. There is a low tone bonging sound.


Start with the easy stuff. Is there water at the refer? Remove the line from the back and check for water flow. If equipped, is the filter plugged (water flows without filter in sort of thing)? Is there debris in the line to the refer blocking the valve? Does the water valve solenoid "click" and flow water if you remove the internal water line that goes to the frige interior? Is the water line frozen in the door (turn off frige for a day and check water flow).
