Dispenser leaking----Probably replace the water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in. Disconnect the water line to the dispenser there and see if it keeps dripping when you try the dispenser

Where is the water shutoff to the waterdispenser?


It's either on the back in the water supply line before it connects to the fridge water inlet valve or under your sink where the water supply line comes from.

Water not working but still makes ice


At the bottom of the freezer door ( remove the kick plate ) , there will be a water line . Follow this line , about 6 " to a connector . Push in on the white ring and pull out the line , at the same time . Activate the water dispensor pad and see if water flows from the line under the refrig . If it does , then the line in the door is frozen . Either raise the freezer temp for several days , so the line in the door will thaw , turn on the dispensor light for several hours , or , I have heard using an air tank will blow the ice out of the line in the door . If no water comes from the line under the refrig , while activating the pad , then replace the water valve , behind the refrig , the piece the wall water line connects to on the refrig . GE has a dispensor heater pt. # WR49X10173 to keep this from happening again ( comes with instructions ) .

Water wont dispense but still makes ice. Also fridge side gets extremely cold no matter the settings and freezes stuff in the bottum drawers


Since your freezer control is the main thermostat , and your refrig control is only a damper , lower your freezer setting and turn the refrig control mid way . This will make the refrig run less , and keep the air flow moving , throughout the complete unit . When the airflow stops , by turning down the refrig control ( closing the damper ) , all the cold air will settle in the refrig section , thereby freezing everything in the lower section .
Since the water line runs thru the freezer door , too cold in the freezer section , will cause the water in the line to freeze . I would also suggest installing a dispensor heater ( pt. # WR49X10173 ) , which would hopefully avoid water line freeze , in the future . This part comes with installation instructions .

My GE Adora side by side refrig. has stopped making ice and I am having a hard time regulating the settings on it. The freezer is too cold and the refrig. section isn't cold enough. I also have noticed...


Defroster circuit/timer has failed.

The water line to the icemaker has probably frozen,so no ice. The cooling coils are in the freezer, and the cold air moves to the fridge via vents and circulation fan.

When it all ices up, no air gets to fridge, fridge gets warm.

Many models have a mechanical defroster timer located under the lower front kick panel. Manually rotate the timer until you hear the compressor stop.

Defroster heater then should come on and you hear scorch/hiss/gurgle of defrost sounds. If the timer is working, the fridge should come back on after about a half hour or so.

Sometimes timer fails, sometimes heater element fails. There is also a defrost thermostat that's part of the heater assembly.

Water line stopped pouring. where is a good place


Remove the toe plate at the bottom of the refrig . Follow the water line about 6 " to the connector . Push in on the white ring while pulling out on the small line . Press the dispensor for water , and see if a steady stream comes out from the line under the refrig . If so , then the water line inside the door is frozen . If not , then the solution , is to replace the dual water inlet valve behind the refrig . This is the piece where the wall water line connects to on the refrig . If the line in the door is frozen , you need to lower the freezer temp , reconnect the connector by pushing the line , back in the coupler . May take several days to thaw . Or , if you have a compressor , you can try blowing the line out , yet still turn down ( warmer ) the freezer temp .

Freezer stopped working


Pour about 1/2 cup of water into ice maker . If it dumps the cubes , then replace the water valve . If it doesn't , replace the ice maker . Also make sure the refrig coils are clean and free of dust , lint , pet hair , etc....

Kitchen refrig will not dispense ice or water


IF anything went bad it would be the water valve but is shouldnt have failed just because you didnt turn the water on.Just for grins, unplug the wires to teh water valve and plug them back in to make sure you have a good connection.Then unplug the fridge for a minute and make sure the water is on , and plug the fridge back in.Your solenoid may be stuck.THese are just things I would try..I'm mechanically inclined but am not a appliance repairman.
