SOURCE: Water dispenser won't turn off

Stix: Check behind the dispenser handle the switch or button which is responsible to activate the mechanism of water dispensing. If the switch or button is covered with a reubber you must remove the rubber cap or whatever cover it has. If you have mineral oil or somekind of greasy stuff (vaseline or something similar) lubricate the switch or button. Open the freezer door and activate and deactivate the dispenser several times to lubricate the whole mechanism. SithPitt

SOURCE: The water dispenser in my frig stopped working

We had same problem! The water line gets frozen in the door, and there is no way to get to it. But, I took some 14 gauge electrical wire and would get one end hot by putting it under hot water, then put that end up the water line in the door. This might take several attempts, but it will work. A little piece of ice about 2 inches long will come out.

SOURCE: ge profile refrigerator slow water dispenser

Have had problem with slow water dispenser in GE Profile refrigerator for two years. SOLUTION IS TO INSERT A THIN PLASTIC OR BRASS WASHER. The washer must have a hole large enough go over the center post / plug with the two O rings but not so large it interferes with the seating of the filter. The objective is to fully depress the little black valve piece. The little ramps on the new filters do not fully engage the valve and thus the water trickles out. Volume increased from one cup per 20 seconds to 1 cup per 10 seconds, double the flow. Washer 1 mm thick will do the trick (about a dime thickness). I used a thin brass washer which barely fit the center post, had to remove O rings to get it on. (Re-install O rings.) The outer diameter of the washer was just enough to touch the little black valve nub. If this works for you please repost and pass the word.

Ice and Water not dispensing. Light button not working


http://www.repairclinic.com/0100_1.asp
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.

Model 253. 54362409 boards get power but water and ice wont dispense


check the fill silonoid on the back of the frig where the water line connets to the unit.. that is the solinoid
sounds like it is clogged up.. usally happens after a few years with hard water or well water. if that fixes it try putting a inline filter before the frig to keep it from happing again.

GE profile side-by-side water dispenser works, no ice though


Ice maker bad or the ice maker water valve mounted on the same bracket as the dispenser is bad. These frigs are prone to bad ice makers after a few years.

The water to the ice maker continues to drip then freezes up.


the loud noise is from the water freezing and hitting the fan blade in the freezer, is the imkr level? have you replace the filter if has one? is it hooked to an R/O water drinking system? if so remove the filter in frig. last thing to do if others questions ok if the shutoff to that water line going to frig is on the bottom of the pipe shut all the way off then turn back on if you have a dispenser and water is really slow to come out this may clear up the low water pressure. If on most units if you do not have appx 35psi it will not allow the valve inside the watervalve to seat and allows water to dribble by

The water/ice dispenser will not dispense neither ice nor water..


There is a door switch that senses the door being closed for the dispenser to work. The water problem could be a plugged filter if you have one. Was the frig extremely cold recently? The water resevoir can freeze up. (its located behind the crispers) It could be the switches in the dispenser itself. Process of elimination will lead to the problem.

I have a GE side by side refrigerator model # PSS26SGRD and the water and ice dispenser stops working without any warning or symptom intermintently. It will be working find for days or weeks and suddenly...


Well, the solution to this problem was posted in this thread
http://www.fixya.com/support/t1295372-ge_profile_ref_ice_despenser_motor_not

It seems that the bulb in the front panel is pulling to much current as it ages and it makes the control panel in not work properly. Removing the bulb will fix the problem - just fixed mine.

Also seems to match your symptoms (works sometimes and then not others - bulb current is inconstent, light dims when dispense lever pressed - again wrong current draw).

Good luck

GE older ice maker won't make ice


pull the cover of the front of the ice maker. there should be directions as to what way to turn the main gear (use a philips screw driver). advance the ice maker until it starts to run on its own. if water comes in at the end of the cycle then you need a new ice maker. if no water comes in check to make sure the fill tube is not frozen. if it is clear replace the water valve.

Good Luck,
Todd

The water dispenser in my frig stopped working but it still makes lots of ice. I replaced the filter on 29 Dec 2007. I normally get 6 months out of a filter.
