GE GSS22WGPJ CC Side by Side

Our ice maker is working fine and making cubes, but our water dispenser is not working. I have checked that there is water to the fridge, I have changed the filter, but for some reason the change light never came on so it was 2 months late and there was some rust stuff dripping down the back if that matters, it makes a good pressure noise when it is removed, the light was reset, I have turned the fridge temp up and waited and then down and waited, I have held the water dispenser on for over two minutes. Please help!!

You should have two water solenoids in back of fridge and near bottom where the water supply comes in. It is possible that one of the solenoids is stuck (the one supplying door)closed or clogged with trash. Also possible the selector switch on door is not making a good connection when selecting water. When someone is trying to get water touch a metallic object to solenoid in back to see if the magnetic field pulls the iron from a safety pen or screwdriver. There should be a click when the water valve opens if not stuck, dirty or bad solenoid. Also try switching water lines around (ice water to water and back) Let me know if this helps, Sea Breeze
