'After about ten months, the water dispenser stopped. I found a 5/16" coupling below the freezer door. Following the instructions on a tab attached to the hose, I separated the hose from the coupling. I then actuated the water cradle. Water gushed out of the tubing. The dispenser side of the dual water valve is ok.
I snaked a wire into the hose toward the dispenser until it stopped. I withdrew the wire then measured the length. The hose had a blockage at the lower left edge of the dispenser opening. I didn't know if there was a check valve in the hose. Since it was still in warranty (2 months to go), I called service.
I didn't say anything about what I did to the tech. He concluded that the hose was frozen (there is no check valve or anything else in the line between the coupling and the dispenser). According to him my options were to replace the door (he actually said that) or shut down the frig and let it defrost. I fabricated a double layer cardboard cover for the freezer compartment. I removed the light bulb then covered the opening. In about 60 minutes the dispenser started working again. I have had the frig since 12/03. It just froze up for the sixth time today (3/20/07). GE has offered no help or acknowledging that the frig has an insulation problem.'

Water dispenser is not working


Does it make ice? If it makes Ice, then you have water to unit. If No Ice and No Water, check water supply. Otherwise, you could have a bad water valve. Remove valve and the line coming off of valve to water reservoir try to dispense water and if valve is good you should have water coming from valve. (have a bucket or bowl handy to catch water).

The water does not come out of the cool water dispenser and ice cubes come out when the water dispenser is pushed.


You may have an issue with the "electronic dispenser control board". Also, check your "water reservoir" located in the fresh food area (lower rear area) to ensure that the water is not frozen (if frozen, this will prevent water from dispensing at external dispenser).

Contact an appliance service company.

Water is not dispensed but icemaker is working


It's more common to be frozen in the door. You can disconnect the line under the unit before it goes into the door at the bottom hinge. Push the dispenser button and see if it comes out there. If it does leave the door open till it thaws
If it doesn't come out then disconnect the line to the water dispenser at the water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in and try the dispenser. if you hear the valve work but water doesn't come out, the valve is bad. If the water comes out then check the reservoir.It's behind the crispers in the fridge.

Water Dispenser


GodofHops: The motor that you hear on the refrigerator is the water pump that carries the water to your dispenser. If no water is coming from the dispenser. You have to check 3 things: 1. If there's any water. 2. Water filter clogged. 3. Water line for dispenser clogged with minerales carried on water flow. SithPitt
