GE profile performance side by side tps24bBPDA refridge - Icemaker does not fill with water. I don't hear the water seleniod activate to fill ice tray. Water comes out the door OK, although there is a delay in door water seleniod activating at times.

    I'll try this. I thought I needed to replace this multi valve system, bu t wanted to chech before I placed an order for it. It will take a few days to get the part and install it.

    Placed the order for the part. It'll take a week or so to get and install it. Hope this was the problem. I won't know until I swap it out.

HI, this dual inlet water valve assembly has become mechanically unstable at this time. I recommend replacing this faulty valve asap. this will fix this issue.

The water inlet valve is located behind your refrigerator. Find the water supply line coming into the valve and turn it off at the source (typically under the sink). Disconnect the supply line. Remove the screws that secure the inlet valve in place.

The water inlet valve is connected by two wires. Label the wire placement on the water inlet valve before disconnecting the wires. The wires are connected to the terminals with slip on connectors

Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If the connectors are corroded they should be replaced.

Inspect the filter screen where the supply line connects. Remove any debris or deposits that may have built up using a toothbrush
or warm running water. If you cannot clear the clog, it will be necessary to replace the valve (the filter is not removable on most inlet valves).


Test the water inlet valve for continuity using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X100 (if available, otherwise use the nearest ohm setting). Place a probe on each terminal. The multimeter should display a reading of 200 to 500 ohms. Close inspection of the inlet valve and especially the coil may reveal the exact ohm resistance rating to test for. If the water inlet valve does not pass this test, it should be replaced.

GE Side by Side Refrigerator model GSS25jfpa cc. No water to icemaker. Replaced the ice maker and the dual solenoid water valves. Still no water to ice maker? Water to door works fine.


if you can reverse the solenoid valve wire connections,then use the door water fill to activate this valve,but not long as it will overfill the icemaker,this will certify that theres water getting up to the icemaker,then it could be the maker itself not activating the icemakers water valve assy to fill the maker

GE Profile Performance TPX24SP No ice. Water to fridge but does not seem to get to icemaker. It cycles and I can hear the solinoid but no water flow. Maybe the water line is frozen? How do I...


I had the same problem. The the repair tech found two broken 5/16" plastic tubings on the output side of the ice maker and door water dispenser solenoids. These are located on the Bracket and Valve Assly. where the main water connection is on the rear of the refrigerator behind the cardboard grill. The tubing is placed right next to the hot compressor so they crack over time.

GE refridge icemaker won't work


The ice maker unit give the command to the water valve to relese water for a short time.
you cna check with volt meter on the water volve that got the pip go to the ice maker unit if it getting 120V for short time when the fingers of the ice maker making full round.
if you get 120v the problem is the valve (the ice maker and the water have difrent water path so its difrent valve used) if you dont get 120v or the fingers of the ice maker not turning then its your ice maker unit need to be replace.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

GE Profile Arctica PSS25SGNA BS Icemaker is not working seems to be filling with water but no ice.


The water dispenser and ice maker side run separate sides of the water control valve. Fill ice maker with tap water and let it freeze. If it dumps the ice then does not refill then the water control valve is the problem. I will be back soon with a photo and some links, Thanks, Sea Breeze

All water underneath.ice in the bottom.freezer working.not making


If I understand you correctly your water line that comes through the back wall of the freezer and into the icemaker is frozen. If so you have a bad water valve. When the valve goes bad it will not seal off the water. It will seep causing a slow drip where the water comes out at you icemaker. It'd slow enough to freez causing a ice blockage. This will not allow water to come through and fill your icemaker when it calls for water.

Ice maker water line doesnt shut off


If the icemaker did not stop right in the spot where the water fills the tray, without completing the cycle, you have an icemaker problem, but that is highly unlikely. More likely is that the water fill valve (the part right where the water line hooks onto the refrigerator) will have to be replaced.

Ice maker tube freezing up


  • change the water valve on the back of the machine.
  •  the water valve is slowly leaking water up to the icemaker where it freezes and builds up ice, blocking the water flow.
