I just connected the ice maker water line to the unit. The Frig has electrical power and ice is making. My problem is that the controls at the front of the Frig is not working. I cannot dispense the ice...


Without a model number here how they usually operate. The DOOR / LIGHT switch disables water and ice in door functions. I.e. it is not supposed to operate with the door open. If the switch is open... i.e the light is not working door open, (Switch has 2 functions Light and Water / ive in door operation) Then the control panel / water / ice in door will all not work either. It is possible for the light to work while the CP / H2o / Ice do not work. Usually if a door switch fails the light stops working also. It is not always the case.

Try holding to door switch plunger depressed and see if your CP works and water in door work. DO NOT try ice in door as you can damage things.

If you respond with a model number and brand; I will see what I can dig up for you use while troubleshooting your unit. Expect to see parts data also.

Not making ice after changing filter.


Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly.

A new filter can take several cycles of the ice maker to fill the filter up with water before. The average filter is around 30 oz and the average ice maker fill cycle is 3.2 oz. The new filter did not have any water in it. The water in the door has a resercoir so the air in the filter will still make the water work until you get air. Drain abour 3 tall glasses from the water in door. The ice maker should then work properly. The filter filters water for water in door (inside) and the ice maker so if you have water inside the door you should have ice UNLESS one of the inlet water valve solenoids has failed. Also make sure the Freezer door / light switch functions properly. The door switch is supposed to stop water and ice functions with the door open.

I would like to know if it starts making ice.

The ice/ water machine not working


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

When both the ice and water in door functions stop the problem is usually the door switch. If the door switch fails in the open position the light stays on when the door is closed and water and ice in door do not work. With the door open depress the door switch plunger to see if the comparment light goes off. If it stays on the door switch has failed. If it goes out.. hold the door plunger depressed and have someone try the water in the door. If the water in the door now works the door switch is not getting depressed enough to allow the water and ice in door to work during NORMAL operation. Again usually it requires door switch replacement to correct the problem. The door switch is a 3 terminal switch. One terminal is common, One terminal controls the light, and One terminal controls the water and ice in door functions. The switch retails for less than $10.00

You remove the switch by sliding a thin knife blade along one side of the switch to release the single locking tab. You can use a putty knife also.

Since you did not include a model number I can not help you with parts data.

There is more that can be done if the door switch is ok but I really need the model number to proceed from here. I will help you... Just respond with a COMPLETE model number.

In-door water dispenser doesn't work.


The water supply to the door is frozen up inside the door and about the quickest way is to use a hair dryer with the ref in the off position and freezer door open warm the area with the hair dryer. This will take a while, be patient but the only other alternative is to turn ref off for 24 hours with the freezer door left in the open position. Remember have patience if using the hair dryer method. Good luck and hope this helps.

Water dispenser doesn't work on ge hotpoint freezer


Here recently I have run into 2 of these units that do this and have found that the dispenser line is frozen in the freezer door. The way to test this is to remove the kick plate under the doors (It is easiest to open both doors to do this) Disconnect the union in the water line leading to the door by pushing in on the waterline and pulling in on the end of the fitting. When the line is apart, close the doors and push in on the paddle as to fill a cup with water. If you get water out of the line under the door then your line in your door is frozen and you will either need to replace your door or let the unit thaw for 24 hours with the doors open. Cheaper to thaw. If no water comes out under the door when paddle is pressed then you will need to replace the water valve as long as you have 120 volts at the valve when actuated.

The water switch went bad or the water valve. Switch the two wires on the water valve on the back of the ref. Press water switch on door if water fills ice maker valve is bad,if not,door switch is bad.
