SOURCE: I replaced the water filter for my GE GSH25JSTA SS

I have had the same problem with the same model several times in the past. It also happens to me within a few days of replacing the water filter.

In my case, I believe the water line in the freezer door has become frozen. I usually let the freezer thaw for a couple of hours, and my water works again.

I have had constant problems with this model. I would recommend trying to sell your fridge now while it's still running, before the real headaches begin (mine has died 2x in the past six months, and I have not even had it for 2.5 years yet). No more GE's in my house.

SOURCE: Fridge Makes Cubes But No Water

Get part number WR49X10173 from Consumer Relations (800-386-1215. (Free; be sure they understand how long you have had to deal with this issue) ($38+ if you buy part on line)

The part includes instructions to install, but not how to remove the control panel. Here's how: Look from below the panel to observe 3 holes (aprox. 1/8" dia) located in a long narrow depression. Observe that there is the edged of a plactic tab visible partly covering each hole. Use a pointed tool such as a shish-kabob skewer to carefully probe the hole at the right or left end, and carefully pull the control panel forward on the side with the hole you are probing. This will help release the tab, allowing the panel to come off. Repeat for the opposite side.

The instructions with the part take over from here. The part is a loop of wire that provides a bit of heat to keep the area warm, and is held in place by some aluminum tape, then spliced into the red and the black/white wires on the 6-wire harness on the left side of the control. BE SURE the power is OFF!!!!

After replacing the cartridge, the water flow is extremely poor. After calling GE, I was told I may have a bad filter. Hope not at the price per filter they charge. Is there any other solution? Is it...


The GE GXRLQR is the correct *replacement* filter for the following "Smartwater" single stage filtration and exterior refrigerator icemaker systems:
  • GE GXRLQ
  • GE GX1S50F
  • GE GQ1S50F
This filter is rated for only 750 gallons / 6 months of use (typical fridge with ice maker & water service). Most home faucets will deliver about 6 gallons / minute which roughly translates to about 2 hours of running water.


The GE FQSLF works with the following for the following Dual Stage Under Sink filtration systems:

  • GE GQSL55F
  • GE GXSL55F
Because there are 2 filters, they will last nearly 2x as long as the GE GXRLQR. and would likely be better suited to serving a faucet which will pass much more water than a fridge ice maker & chilled water dispenser would.

The real question is: Which GE filtration SYSTEM (not filters) do you have?

Water dispenser and ice maker are not working, water supply to refrigerator is ok.


Check / replace the filter. Many fridges have a filter readily accessible from the fresh food compartment. The filter should be changed at regular intervals for best performance. A filter that is never changed will reduce and eventually stop water flow through it.

Check the temperature of the fresh food compartment near the filter. It may be "flirting" with the 32 degree mark. If it is this low, water has turned to ice - and will stop water from flowing. Bump the temperature up a tad to see if it solves the problem.

Lastly, the water supply solenoid may have failed. You didn't provide the model fridge - so I can't give specific info about it - but many fridges have one or two solenoids at the rear of the fridge for water supply and ice makers. You should hear a clicking sound from the rear of the fridge on many models when dispensing water or when the ice maker cycles on. If one has failed, you may expect to pay about $15 to $50 for a replacement - depending model.

Typical GE Refrigerator Single Solenoid Water Inlet Valve "WR57X10033"

Solenoid valve replacement is pretty straight forward. Usually all the is needed are some simple hand tools and a rag to pick up spilled water. Make sure the water supply is shut off and unplug the fridge before attempting.

If my answer was helpful - please rate it. Thanks & good luck!

Kenmore side-by-side not dispensing ice or water, the ice maker has been replaced, no water going into the tray. I cannot locate the water filter, does this model have one?


Don't know what is the model number of your fridge. 1.Need check electric water valve under the fridge. If that fridge made by GE (Kenmore just a Sears brand name and they use several others manufacturers for refrigeration), usually it's a frozen plastic water supply line inside freezer door. You could unplug fridge for 24 hours (you have to put food from freezer to other freezer).

Hi I have a GE Fridg. #GFSL6KEXALS Just has ice in bottom freezer, no water. Ice maker quit working, Does not seem to be filling with water.


Check the water line that goes from the house plumbing all the way to the inlet on the 'fridge. Are there any kinks? Dirt obstructing the line? You MUST BE VERY CAREFUL when pulling the 'fridge out to check. If you have a copper line, it takes NOTHING for one to kink. And as soon as it kinks...it's done.

We purchased foreclosure house that has a GE fridge tpx21prx-possibly 13 years old-no info but does it need filter for ice and water use? There is no filter inside fridge-does copper line need replacing...


This model does not have a filter for the ice and water, you can add an inline filter in back of fridge water line, they sell them at any hardware store, you dont need to change copper line unless it is corroded.
