Usually due to CONDENSATION due to bad door seals or a plugged evaporator drain line? Can use a soft flexable tubing and very hot water to clean it out. Bad door seals usually need replacement, but u can use a blow dryer and something to pry it closer to the door wall while blowing hot air on to it. To create a seal, to test for bad door seals place a dollar bill in between the door and wall of fridge where it closes. Then slide out the dollar bill with door closed. It should offer some resistance and not be easy to pull out.
Most all fridges have a drain. Look inside your fridge for a "V" shaped channel with a small hole. This hole leads to a tube and a small pan which sits on top of your refrigerator's compressor. The defrost cycle causes water to run into the channel, down the tube, and then it generally evaporates with the heat of the hot condenser/compressor.
However, if that tube is clogged with food crumbs, particles , debris etc, you will have to clear it to get back to a normal mode of operation. A toothpick, pipecleaner, straw or a cotton bud can often do the trick.
Even a frost free freezer will still ice up at times in the areas away from the heated defrost area and the drain line can freeze. This icing causes the pipe work to the compressor to ice over or sweat and cause a puddle. Or if the drainage has frozen over, it will need to be de-iced. ( usually the line is under the freezer bottom plate covering. Towards the back of the unit) And there is another inside the fridge area also.
Give the freezer a good overnight defrost until it's totally clear of ice in addition to making sure the drain is clear to the pan at the back and then restart the freezer.

Water does not come out of dispenser


Hi, check down the bottom of the freezer door. Behind kickplate is a quick coupler. You will see water come out of here after disconnecting? If there is water, the water line is either collapsed or froze inside the door. If frozen, it is hard to know, almost next to impossible to unthaw. If collapsed, no repair. Either case, you are looking at replacing the door liner which is somewhat expensive.

Why am I not getting any water from door dispenser for model GSS23KGSA BB


Pull refrig out , and remove the back panel . At the water valve (piece the wall water line connects to , push up on the white ring and pull the LARGER line from the valve . Activate the water dispensor and see if water comes out of the valve . If no water , replace the complete water valve . If water comes out , reinstall the hose by pushing back into valve , and remount valve and rear panel . Push refrig back into place . Remove the bottom kick plate and disconnect the water line about 6" under front , from the coupling (pushing in the ring and pulling hose ). Press for water again . If no water comes out , probably frozen resevoir behind the refrig crispers , so turn refrig temp slightly warmer for a few days , to unthaw (or use hairdryer) . If water shoots out from hose , then water line inside door is frozen . This would be a more difficult procedure to follow . You can try adjusting freezer temp slightly warmer for a few days to see if it will thaw . If it doesn't thaw , come back to this thread with " water in door frozen " and myself or another expert will be glad to help you .

No water


GE's are bad for the water supply line freezing inside the freezer door. Also,a clogged water filter will cause the same thing. I have used a hairdryer in the past to unthaw my water dispense line.Good Luck!!

Water Dispensor


The water line is frozen inside the freezer door. Open the freezer door and take a hair dryer to warm the inside of the feezer door. Check the water dispenser every 5 minutes to see if the line is unfrozen. Water line is ran from the bottom to the waterr dispense unit. Usally take 10-20 minutes to unthaw water line inside of freezer door. Good luck.
