No dispensing water...GE refrigerator

There is no water dispensing since i replaced the water filter 4 days ago. I even tried removing it and using the stopper but there is no water dispensing. The refrigerator GE Profile side-by-side door is 7 years old. What could be wrong? Thank you.

There may be an interlock switch on the housing where the filter or dummy stopper is inserted. If this interlock is not satisfied, then the water dispenser won't turn on. This would prevent water from spraying all over the inside of the refrigerator if the filter is not seated properly. Check to make sure the filter or plug is inserted properly.

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: in door ice dispenser does not work but the water dispenser does.

check to make sure there is water or ice in your ice maker tray. If none then problem is usually a water supply issue to the ice maker. Behind the frig are the water supply inlet valves. One is for the water dispenser in the door. THe other is for the ice maker. However when one goes bad they both are replaced as one unit. Also Check position of fingers in ice maker. If not in a vertical position then try to reset the ice maker unit and worse comes to worse, replace it with a new one.

SOURCE: GE Profile Refrigerator with large puddles of water on floor.

First, your most pressing issue: the water on the floor.
Check for a blocked defrost drain. Take the panel off at the back of the freezer section and find the small hole at the very bottom center below the cooling coils. Use hot (but not boiling) water and a turkey baster to flush it out until water runs through it. (it will go into the defrost drain pan, where it will evaporate)
This will prevent water from coming out the freezer door and leaking onto your floor.
Now, for issue #2, your water dispenser: If you take the front grill off, you will see a plastic tube going through the hinge. There is a coupler, usually a insta-push type just before that. If you push on the collar of the fitting toward the center of the fitting while pulling (not real hard) on the tubing, the tube will come off. Now, try the water dispenser to see of any water comes out the disconnected tube. If yes, comment back to me to see how to fix this, if no water comes out, you most likely have a bad water valve. Reconnect the water line by just pushing it back into the fitting. Disconnect the outlet side of the water line at the water valve and try the dispenser again. No water out the valve almost always will be a bad valve. (there are rare exceptions) Water out valve now when dispenser is pressed equals a frozen water tank or water filter in the fresh foods compartment. Issue #3, your uncovered foods: All the cooling for a refrigerator takes place in the freezer compartment, and some of the cold air is circulated into the fresh foods compartment to cool it. As the air is circulated throughout the entire refrig / freezer, air picks up and transfers odors to uncovered items, including ice. Cover foods and use an open box of baking soda to help absorb odors. Issue #4. (was there a #4?) Oh yes,..... why are you dealing with this? Tell the landlord to have a service company come and check it out. You don't pay the service company, you pay the rent. Landlord is responsible for the repairs.

SOURCE: frost buildup inside freezer door at ice dispenser

you are still not getting a seal on that flap. It sounds as if it may be warped. THe reason the frost and ice is building up is due to the flap not sealing there isn't any other reson for your problem. Good luck on your repairs

Ice and Water not dispensing. Light button not working


http://www.repairclinic.com/0100_1.asp
There's an ice- or water-dispensing problem The ice and water-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Many components work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from a simple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most other components are not user serviceable. We suggest that you contact a qualified appliance repair technician for such repairs.

Icemaker/water dispenser not working.


Just had to defrost the water tank inside the fridge for a few minutes. Using a waterproof heating pad with extension cord did the trick. Even a fridge needs a warm blanket from time to time.

Moldy taste from water/ice for GE profile


What kind of external filter did you use ? If you used an $11.00 cut the line and attach on each end of the tube filter , this will not work . Go to home depot and invest in the $50.00 filter which mounts to the wall , where you replace the inner certridge by untwisting with your hand . This filter has replaceable charcoal , calcium , lime ,etc cartridges . You may have to try different cartridges to find the one your happy with .

GE WATER DISPENSER RUNS SLOW AND GIVE WARM WATER


With the refrig , you should have gotten a small bypass piece which fits in place of the inside filter . Install this to see if the filter is good or not . Water faster , replace filter , still slow , possible water valve problem . Also use a connector usually a 1/4 x 1/4 compression fitting , to bypass the outside filter for test purposes only .

Water stopped running in the dispenser


I had a simular problem! I tried multiple things to make it work!

- bought new filter
- open back of the fridge... (dual outlet water valve)

Finally, I went to a different forum and found a unique idea.

First at the very bottom of the fridge theres a cover remove the cover and you should see the water hose running to the door from the back. In the middle of the hose there a coupler where the hose was spliced by the manufactuer. Now this valve once you separate it will not work correctly, unless you buy a new coupler (4$)... I'm el cheapo, I bought teflon tape for 50 cents (from previous project)... Wrapped around about half dozen times and made sure it wasnt leaking...

Secondly, when you disconnect the coupler no water should shoot out, until you press the water dispenser arm. If water shoots out of the hose on the bottom then you problem is really, really, really easy. You have simplely ice/ or another item blocking water hose to the actual dispenser.

I turned off the frezzer left the door open for an hour or so. I also used my wife's blow dryer on hot, and put it where the ice comes out of the ice maker. I would press the arm peridocially to see if the ice blockage melted yet. REMEMBER: door must be closed for pressure to push on the ice blockage. Thinking back, I might have been finished sooner... I was thinking the water dispenser would work with the door open.

If this doesnt work, then you have other problems... Bad water dispenser selonoid (you can hear this little motor turning even without water), dual water outlet valve maybe broken... Going outside my knowldege level at this point.... But i guess you computer board maybe going bad. Not sure if this computer has anything to do with water dispensing....

Hope this helps! My wife left me alone for about a day or two while she enjoyed the water dispenser...And she broke the vaccum.
