GE GSH25JFRF BB ice maker doesn't dispense. Water dispenses and ice maker makes ice but won't come out.


There should be a plastice hinge cover on the left top hinge on freezer door. Take it off and press the plug together firmly. Try that and let me know, Sea Breeze

Frigidaire side by side won't make ice but water comes from the dispenser


you either have a bad water valve,bad ice maker,also when was the last time you changed the filter?if it has a whirlpool ice maker you can pop off the cover on the ice maker,jump out the ice maker by sticking a jumper wire into the t and h,let it run for 15 to 20 seconds and pull the wire out,the ice maker should keep spinning,if it does go all the way around the water should come in when the white arms are at 11 oclock,if the water doesn't fill into the ice maker you can jump out the water valve from the ice maker,it says to jump it out from v to n but i jump it from v to L,if it fills with water the ice maker is bad,no water the valve is bad.you have a double valve,one for the dispenser and one for the ice maker but if one fails you have to change out the valve and it comes with both.next time send the full model number off of the machine and i can look it up and see what valve and ice maker is on your machine,when you find out what the problem is,call your parts store,give them the model number and they'll sell you the correct part.http://fixitnow.com/wp/2010/09/05/whirlpool-built-modular-icemaker-wiring-diagram-and-test-points/ copy and paste and it will show you how to jump out the ice maker.

No ice, water does not fill ice maker, but water flow is OK.


if Ice maker cycles and you get no water into it you have a clogged/frozen fill tube. If a broken line the water would go on your floor every 15 min. None of those indicates your refrig valve is bad. Dual solenoid water side works Ice doesn't.

Our Ice maker is not producing ice. I've tried using a hair dryer to melt possible frozen water. It worked once, but now that ice maker is back to not producing ice.


The heating element is not working to heat the base and free the ice from the tray. At this point it's probably better to just replace the ice maker. They are about 60-70$

I have a Frigidaire professional side by side fridge model# LPHS2687KFO water is leaking before entering ice maker thus the ice maker is not working, water is leaking in freezer


The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

Doesn bring water to ice maker


If you have water at the door, the most likely problem is that the metal bar that shuts the ice maker off has been moved to the off position. Check to see if the metal bar is in the up or down position. If it is up, move it down and vice versa and give it an hour to see if it begins making ice again.

Ice maker is not working. No water is getting up to maker. Ice maker sounds like it is working. Tube in back has no water in it.Arm is down. Water is coming out of door just fine. There is no built in...


There is a screen in the water inlet valve where the water supply connects. OR The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.

Not making Ice


Is the freezer at least 10 degrees? Is there water in the ice mold? If not put some to see if it will harvest after it freezes. If no water getting to ice mold Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear. The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.
The valve can leak because of sediment in the water preventing it from closing or low water pressure.
