USE A METER TO TEST THE WATER INLET VALVE FOR VOLTAGE AND FOR OHMS, THE COILS MAY HAVE GONE BAD, THIS IS A LIVE TEST SO UNPLUG THE UNIT B4 TESTING FOR VOLTAGE VOTAGE SHOULD BE 120

It needs to be determined if the valve is causing it or if the electric control to the valve is (e.g. bad dispensing switch, bad control board).

  • You can try disconnecting power to the valve and see if it still does it.
  • You can connect with jumpers a 120 volts lamp to the solenoid valve connector jack instead of the valve and see if any electricity is bleeding thru intermitently, easier to see than using a voltmeter since you may need to wait 15-45 minutes.

LOUD BUZZING SOUND WHEN DISPENSING WATER THRU THE DOOR


The water control valve on rear of refrigerator is weakening. That is typical sound for a coil that opens the side that dispenses water or ice tray refills to vibrate or buzz when weakening. If I had you r model number I could give you the part number. They are not expensive and easy to replace. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Check around the door gasket to see if gasket pulls off or is it held on by screws if there are screws you can separate the door and insulate the tube if no screws than replacing the door is the only repair.

the water line is frozen inside the door. very common ge problem. you can defrost the dispenser area with a hair dryer. it takes about 30 min to do. it will freeze up again. if the frig is less than 3 years old, even though it out of warranty you can argue with ge and youll get a new door to fix the problem
