There is no reservoir, It fills the ice tray by a control valve hooked up to your home plumbing. No ice? Has it been connected to a water supply? Should chk. Good luck. There should be a water line on the back of the fridge.

Hi, There is no reservoir for the ice maker. It is fed directly from the inlet valve through the rear wall of the freezer. If you are not getting water, then check to see if the inlt tube that goes through the rear wall is plugged with ice. This is a very common problem.
If the inlet tube is open, then you will need to checl the valve and see if water is getting through it. While the ice maker is cycleing, check the valve and see if you hear a humming noise. If the valve hums, remove the hose that goes to the inlet valve and see if water comes out.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can asist you further.

Why wontmywaterin the door wont work


It's possible that the chilled water reservoir that is located in the back wall of the refrigerator section behind your crisper has frozen. Try turning the refer 1 turn warmer and wait about an 1 hour and see if it thaws out. If that doesn't work it might me the switch actuator in the actual dispenser that activates when you call for water.

Wont make ice and frozen water running down door


Your inlet tube that goes to the icemaker may be frozen. To Check: Shut off water supply to Fridge, disconnect the water line that goes to the icemaker at top back. Use a flexible item to insert in the water line connection. I used a zip tie. If the flexible item won't all the through to the ice maker, the line is frozen. Thaw out the tube from inside the freezer with a hair dryer. Re-connect everything, you now have ice . . . Solution #2: You may have to replace your "Water Inlet Valve" located at bottom right rear of Fridge. Easy to do, just follow the color codes, be sure and shut off the water.

in the back there is a tube that services the water for the ice maker located at the top back. . that tube is probably frozen. so any water will back up and freeze.

Water dispenser on refrigerator not working but ice maker is making ice


Most likely a frozen line... If you can hear a faint pump noise near filter when you try to dispense wate, that tells you the pump is woking. rIt could be a frozen reservoir(located on fridge side behind vegetable bins) or the line that runs thru freezer door to the dispenser. Use a hair dryer to thaw out reservoir or try to turn off the unit for a few hours. (That did it for me). If it's the line in freezer door, shut off unit, open freeezer door for a few hours and seal off freezer with a towel or cardboard to keep all frozen. If not this, may be a clogged water line from filter or a bad valve.

Easiest way to thaw out a possible frozen water reservoir in my GE side by side fridge?


Hair dryer is the easiest way to thaw. To find cause: Remove lower grill and disconnect the water line going through the freezer2_bing.gif door hinge. Usually it is a push lock fitting, which requires you to push the ring2_bing.gif on the end of the fitting toward the center of the fitting while pulling (not hard) on the plastic tube. Now place a pan under the separated plastic hose and try the water dispenser. If water comes out, your problem is a frozen water line in the freezer door. A warmer freezer temp may help, or you can order and install a WR49X10173 water tube heater2_bing.gif. (the heater may take 24 hours to thaw the line, but I have used it successfully several times. Cost about $50) If no water comes out the separated tube when you try to dispense water, reconnect the tube at the hinge by pushing the plastic line back into the fitting. Now, at the back of the refrig., disconnect the water line going from the water valve to the fresh foods compartment. Try to dispense water. No water at valve outlet = bad valve. Water dispensed from valve now = frozen water filter2_bing.gif or water line at back bottom of fresh foods compartment. (make sure you disconnect the right tube. If in doubt, disconnect them both, just get them back correctly so your icemaker continues to work) Send me additional comments if needed. Don't rate before you try all the steps.

If water filter or water line/ reservoir is frozen, thaw with a hair dryer. If reservoir is frozen, check to make sure there is no frost on back wall of inside freezer, preventing normal air flow, allowing cold air to enter fresh foods compartment through return air vent at lower back of fresh foods compartment, resulting in freezing of water line / reservoir and possibly food in bottom bin.

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.
