Question about GE Profile PSW26P Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator

Open Question

Fridge was working fine then I heard the ice maker water supply kick on filling the maker but it sounded like splashing inside. I pulled fridge out , remover lower panel and computer board panel. I found drops of water on the wires that run from the top area down to board. I cleaned and dried with blow dywer for 1/2 hour. Also cleaned of dust on bottom coil and condecer. Coil is label as self cleaning...lol what a joke that label is. Plug back in and nothing. Both lights on each side work. I did notice a small fuse in the board. Could this be the issue. Fridge is 9 years old.

This sounds like the float mechanism has gone bad. Remove it and have a look. It may be the float or the switch on it that is bad. There is also a solenoid valve. Parts kits are available. Shut off the water first!

SOURCE: GE Profile side by side fridge - water dispenser doesn't work

More than likely, your water line is freezing up in the door. You can remove all of the ice cubes and lower the freezer temp to about 3. Leave the freezer door open for about 5 minutes or so and if this does not work, leave the door open a little longer. Also, disconnect the water line at the base of the freezer door, near the floor, and press the dispenser lever. If you have water there, you most likely have a frozen line in the door. Changing the water filter often will help but it is not the answer and is can get quite expensive. By the way, Make sure to hold the dispenser lever forward for at least a couple of minutes each time you test for water flow. If you do not get water at the connector at the base of the door after you have disconnected the line, you have a problem with the valve in the back of the refrigerator.

SOURCE: GE TFX26KRDA WW 2001 side by side refrig/freezer w warm fridge

Cleaned the condenser coils which were dusty but not severely so. Checked the evaporator coils which were NOT iced. Reset the fridge to coldest setting and freezer to #5 (mid range of temperature) and waited a full 36 hours. Fridge temp is 40 F and freezer is about 0F. Not sure what is different except coldest setting on fridge. Warm weather is here but not warm enough to require AC. Temps in late afternoon in house about 77-80F. Any thoughts are appreciated because I suspect this problem is not completely resolved.

The water in the door does not flow very fast, it takes a while to fill a cup.


The water supply hose that taps into your water supply behind the fridge is very small. It provides water to your ice maker and drinking. The water flow was designed to fill up the ice maker at a specific rate according to the timer wheel, and to reduce splash on the ice maker, which would freeze on the rotating parts and stop your ice maker.

Water not getting to water dispenser or ice maker - lines are clear.


Do you hear a clicking sound when attempting to dispense water? A click is usually heard when either of the water supply solenoid valves (one for water & one for ice) opens and closes when dispensing water, or when refilling the ice cube tray right after the ice maker dumps the ice cubes.

If you don't hear the clicking sound, there is probably an electrical problem. Given that BOTH water and ice no longer work, I doubt it both the water and ice maker water solenoid valves failed at the same time. It is probably going to require some digging to solve it.

If you do hear a clicking sound, check the shut off at the supply source. The "tap" type valves that puncture a sink's cold water supply line can become clogged by mineral deposits over time. Make sure that the fridge isn't resting on a supply line, effectively crushing it shut or closed - likewise, the line may have become kinked when the fridge was pushed back into position. You should try to dispense water while the fridge is out from the wall to see if it is a kinked line. Check the entire exposed length of the line for evidence of crushing, too. If the line is routed in cabinets, etc. you should try to inspect the line to make sure nothing fell out of a drawer - and crushed / kinked the line. Replace any damaged water line found. You could shut the water off, and remove the line from the fridge - then have someone turn the water on while you hold the line to fill a container. If it flows - the problem lies in the fridge. If not - it could be a clogged inline filter or bad valve.

There are a bunch of things to check that should be pretty easy to start. Hopefully, you needn't go any further. Good luck!

Water not going to ice maker


That happened to me once and while it was with an older fridge, it's possible it could be the same problem. In my case, the water inside the supply line actually froze. Tried using hot towels and such on the water supply line but in the end, I had to empty out the Fridge and defrost it for a day. Water for the ice maker worked again after that... and I had a clean fridge!
Hope this helps...

Kenmore Side by Side not making ice


This problem is most likely the water control valve on rear of refrigerator. If your ice maker is empty pour tap water inside it and let it freeze. If it dumps the ice then the water control valve. If nothing happens the the thermostat inside the ice maker is defective. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Kenmore Ice Maker Not Making Ice


the water that is frozen in the fill tube could have come from the old water valve that you replaced ,you got to get the ice out, the easiest way ,though not the fastest ,is to unplug fridge for 24 hrs . and leave the doors open to let it defrost, the plug back up and hopefully in 5 or 6 hrs you'll have ice

Ice machine will not stop filling with water...overflows


This sounds like a stuck water valve. Un-plug the fridge and see if the water stops flowing to the ice maker. If it stops, it's a control board (if equipped) or ice maker issue.

If not, turn the water off to the fridge, pull the fridge away from the wall, get behind it and trace the water line (small, plastic line) from the back of the fridge going down to the water valve. Remove the cover, and you may need to remove the water solenoid (the water valve) and see what happened.
