SOURCE: Ice and Water not dispensing. Light button not working
There's an ice- or water-dispensing problem The ice and water-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Many components work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from a simple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most other components are not user serviceable. We suggest that you contact a qualified appliance repair technician for such repairs.

SOURCE: Water dispenser not working. Ice dispenser works

There should be a water filter inside the water lines to the water spout. This filter could be clogged, or the water lines themselves may still be somewhat frozen and not allowing flow to the dispenser itself.
You can also test the power to the dispensor to make sure it is drawing water. Can you hear the pump trying to pump water to dispenser? The water valve should also be opening. You can test power to the valve that draws in water from the external water lines.

SOURCE: The unit stopped dispensing water, makes clicking nose

If you would like to do this yourself and save the fee of a service tech I ill tell you the motherboard and compressor start components have been affected. Just replacing the board is not always the answer. These refrigerators are sensitive to electrical surge, fan failure, compressor start component failure and eliminating the cause is the best and less expensive way to approach this, I will return later and discuss parts and I do need you to confirm your model is the GSH25JFR, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Ice maker and dispenser is not getting water

Make sure "Stop Bar" is all the way down. Check water filter (if applicable. If water filter needs replaced, it can stop water from entering the system). Unplug the fridge or shut power off at fuse box for 20 minutes. After restoring power, If ice maker does not start after a few minutes, Check water inline. (if fridge has been moved, it could have pinched the inline). Check the point of where the inline starts (if possible, disconnect and flush inline. The inline has been known to get clogged at their point of origin coming off of a main water line)

Car shuts of suddenly while driving. Starts back up after 20 minutes.

When the gas-cap is plugged, you build up vacuum in the gas- tank and cause the gas flow to stop.
Use premium gas only, ETHANOL in the mix is attracting moisture/water which is part of the problems.

First, try unplugging the refrigerator for 5 minutes and then plug it back in. If the problem persists, you will need to replace the dispenser control module.

Temperature lights out, water panel in door lights out, no water being dispensed

I assume this refrigerator was working. The sporadic water dispensing is usually a dirty water filter or air in the waterline;but after pulling off the kick board and cleaning,assuming again, the water connector, everything stopped working on the door. At the refrigerator door bottom near the bottom hinge there should be an electrical connector(s) This makes me think you may have dislodged or loosened the connections. This powers everything on the door.
The dispenser may be in "locked".To reset, press and hold lock control for 3 seconds. Another thing to try, if these don't work, is to unplug refrigerator for about 20 seconds, then plug it back in. Electronics sometimes get lost and this will often reset them.
And good luck,

Hi expert, have the GE adora side by side..purchased in '08. I have been having problems for about 2 months. It started with the water not dispensing. I disconnected line..purged and still not working...

this unit has a control boardd that actually controls all the componets/timing sequences on it... g.e has had several issues over the last few years with advertising energy effecient stuff and then recalled some of there monogram units or made it available to customers that they needed the doors replaced in order for them to indeed be enrgy star qualified and then there are the units with control board issues... i would almost be 98% positive you have a control board that has failed... if you unplug it will start over and reset but once reaches timing sequence it will fail again and or relays stick on board/circuit problem... i would purchase a new control board also called main pcb then hit the parts direct link up top it will ask you to enter the complete model number and you can find the part and price... pretty easy to replace also...just make sure while replacing you have unplugged and avoid excess static electricity around your new circuit board... good luck to you ....

GSH25KGRWW dispenses ice/water all by itself! Heard noise last night, and refrigerator was dispensing ice all over the floor!! Attempted to stop by tapping the lever, but this had no effect; pushed water...

as you explained that by opening the freezer door the problem stopped the problem is: that you have a pinched dispenser wire or, two in the area between the door and, the door opening
these wires are low voltage so they are not going to cause a fire
but, if they touch the cabinet due to a bare wire they will ground and, start running the dispenser.
the door cover needs to be removed and, the problem (usually at the door hinge must be found and, corrected i.e. wire taped, shielded etc.

I have a rs21dcns fridge freezer. i'm having trouble getting water from the water dispenser and also having trouble setting the temperature control for my fridge.

The water stops flowing from the dispenser when the external water filter needs changing, stick a new filter and it should start working again, it sometimes takes a few minutes to clear the air after the filter change.
