Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator

2 Answers

Clciking noise My refrigerator stopped dispensing water & ice. I unplugged the unit and checked to make sure that water is coming to the main line where it is connected, and it sure was. But after plugging the unit back to power outlet, it started making clicking noise like the ticking of a clock, only louder. There does not seem any end to this noise. In addition water and ice are still not getting dispensed and I think that refrigerator might not be cooling anymore either.

Re: clciking noise

I was having the same problem.

I read on fixya that there is a reliability issue with many models.

I called GE customer service. They sent a repair guy who swapped out the motherboard at no charge even though it was out of warranty.

Works great now.

2 of my neighbors' friges went out in the summer here in Las Vegas. They both lost all their food.

He said I was lucky because after the clicking noise begins, the motherboard usually crashes the next day. Mine clicked for a month.

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)

GE Side By Side Ice Machine & Water dispenser not getting water

you may have a pin hole in your water line to your dispenser or you could be leaking at the water valve itself on the water dispenser side. you'll have to pull the refrigerator out from the wall and look where the main water line goes into the back of the refrigerator. you will probably have to take the back off to see. be sure you put the back of the refrigerator back when you are through.

The water dispenser stopped dispensing.

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 .
If the water line in the door is frozen , GE has a dispensor heater which comes with instructions to install . Pt # WR49X10173 .

No water, no ice-LG LFD21860ST

Sound like a water supply problem, as both get water from the same source. Both valves are connected to the water line that supplies water to the frig, in the back, bottom, behind the cardboard cover. Make sure the water valve is on for that line. The noises indicate thew valves are probably working, but are not getting any water.

"pipe hammer" from water line to in door ice/water dispenser

try to turn down the valve that feeds your refrigerator water inlet to see if that can help. It's most likely that you have too much water pressure feeding the unit and the valve is having a hard time closing off the flow of water. Good luck and have a Happy New Year.

In door ice dispenser does not work but the water dispenser does.

check to make sure there is water or ice in your ice maker tray. If none then problem is usually a water supply issue to the ice maker. Behind the frig are the water supply inlet valves. One is for the water dispenser in the door. THe other is for the ice maker. However when one goes bad they both are replaced as one unit. Also Check position of fingers in ice maker. If not in a vertical position then try to reset the ice maker unit and worse comes to worse, replace it with a new one.
