Turn the gas valve to pilot and leave it there. This way the pilot will stay on but it wont try to heat and you dont have to re light the pilot. Turn off the water supply valve to the heater. Open the drain valve at the bottom of the heater and hold the lever open on the pop off valve towards the top of the tank. This will allow air into the tank and it will drain faster. If there is not a floor drain nearby you can hook a garden hose to the drain valve. When you are finished do not turn the gas valve back on until the heater is full of water. Open sink faucets when filling tank with water to avoid excess pressure.
behind your crispers is a water tank or a coil of water tube. water stays in there until you call for water. that is y u have cold water at the door. i have seen the tank freeze up at times. u could raise the temp in your frige a few degrees and wait for a week or so to see if it fixes its self. next-- the water valve in back could be bad. it is a duel system ice maker has its own valve. to test this you can disconnect the line where it goes into the bottom of the door and press the button to call for water. have a cup ready.if water comes out there then your line inside the door has frozen. if thats the case call the manufacture because there might be a recall on that model. i have seen that on some GE'S. good luck----RON
The tank assembly needs to be replaced. Keep your tank handle. The other problem is your water not dispensing. There are electric solenoids and a pump that control dispensing soap and water. Take it to a repair shop for complete diagnosis before you replace the tank. The new tank is better, both soap and water tanks are in one assembly
The black " tank " is the compressor . Will the fan by the compressor run ? If not , that is the problem ( fan motor ) . Are the coils clean of dust , lint , pet hair , etc ? The brand and model number would have helped . Since the compressor is hot , means it should be good . The fan motor must be working , to help keep the compressor cool . Also , the back cardboard or metal panel must be in place when finished , or the fan will draw outside air instead of front air over the coils and compressor .
The pressure release valve is a safety feature. If it is leaking alot, it could be that the valve needs to be replaced or it could be that the high temp. shutoff in the hot water tank is malfunctioning.
leaks are usually from valve /dispenser area on top left or from door boot. to check valves open top cover by removing 2 or 3 torx/ 1/4' screws at rear and slide back. check underside of dispenser for cracks, check rubber hose connecting valves to dispenser. to open front and check around boot, remove top cover, remove screws beside dispenser opening (remove drawer) snap control console off starting at dispenser side. On older non teardrop front disconnect and remove interface cables from ccu at rear (ribbon cable in clips on right side. On new teardrop models remove teardrop by unsnapping at top then work down carefully, then unclip console starting at left, disco cables at right side of interface. remove lower kick panel with 3 screws on bottom. then remove 2 front panel screws. remove 2 door lock asm screws and spring clip around boot, then 2 front panel top screws. panel comes right off, carefull of boot. door lock stays behind.
Something from the filter went into the dispensor valve and is holding it open. You can try to backflush it with a can of air by disconnecting the filter pushing open the valve while holding the can straw tightly while discharging it. You could also backflush it with water.
Most of the time the spring just pops out of the keeper on the ice maker, If you push the feeler arm back and it does not come back out on its own then the spring has poped off. Look where the feeler arm attaches to the ice maker and there is a round spring between the feeler arm and the icemaker housing. There is one hole in the feeler arm ans one on the ice maker housing that the spring pops into. Its usually the spring is out of the hole on the ice maker housing.
