Question about GE Profile 26.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Dispenser TFX27PRBWW

1 Answer

GE refrigerator model GSH25KGRB # HG256690 NO WATER OUT DOOR.

This GE side by side refrigerator is only 4 years.
No water comes out the dispenser nor do we get ice.
Same thing happened last year but after leaving the door oper for about 12 hours it came back to life. Now the same thing has happpened but this time leaving the door open for 18 hours has not fixed the problem

We had a GE repairman here last year and he said we would have to "replace the whole freezer door!!!.

We notice that many people are having the same problem with this model GE refrigerator. Do you know of any RECALLS on this model?

Thanks for any help you might offer

Dave

I use a hair dryer to defraust the door. This refrigerator is very sensitive to tempature change. When it gets cold out and you have the tempature on high, the water freezes in the door.

I cover the opening of the freezor with a piece of plastic cut to fit. I tape it in place with blue tape. I tape the door switch down so the you can test the water to see when it is running again. I use the hair dryer With the door open I concentrate the heat on the right side center section. It usually takes about thirty minutes. I put a glass in the water compartment and I try the water every few minutes until it flows. Finally, I run the water for two or three minutes after it starts to flow to make sure all of the frozen water is clear. Thom

No dispensing water...GE refrigerator


There may be an interlock switch on the housing where the filter or dummy stopper is inserted. If this interlock is not satisfied, then the water dispenser won't turn on. This would prevent water from spraying all over the inside of the refrigerator if the filter is not seated properly. Check to make sure the filter or plug is inserted properly.

I have the same fridge and the water line freezes up in the door on a regular basis. I have to use a hair dryer and slowly wait for it to melt. It takes about 30 minutes and then works fine for awhile. It has become quite a habit that I'm not thrilled about. Don't waste your money replacing the board or anything else. GE was no help and I'm now shopping for a new fridge bc of this issue. Needless to say that it won't be a GE! Hope this helps.

Water dispenser keeps freezing GE Refrigerator


If this is a newer model GE side by side refrigerator, this is not uncommon. what you can do to check to see what is going wrong, remove the toe plate at the bottom front of the unit. Under the freezer door, you will see a white plastic water line, with an inline connector about 4-5" from where the line comes out the bottom of the door. this is normally a blue push-in type connector. On this connector, you will see two white sleeves on either side, push in on this sleeve while pulling the corresponding water line section out of the connector, if you squeeze the sleeve enough, the water line will slip right out. Place a towel on the floor, make sure both ends are on top of towel. Now, breifly actuate your water dispenser trigger, see if water comes out the exposed water line. If water comes out, your entire water dispenser system is OK, but, the water line in the freezer door is frozen, in which case the only way to melt it, is to turn the unit off, open the freezer door, and blow a fan for a few hours, to melt the ice INSIDE the door. You could also buy a new door, but that is very costly.
If no water comes out the exposed water line, then either your water filter is clogged, or you have a bad water valve solenoid

I have a GE model GSL22JFPH BS refridgerater and


Then the line in the door is frozen . Either raise the freezer temp for several days , so the line in the door will thaw , or , I have heard using an air tank will blow the ice out of the line in the door . There is a heater for the water dispensor tube , pt # WR49X10173 , which should keep this from happening again .

G.E. Side by side model quit dispensing water. The refrigerator door was not completely closed overnight. Is is possible the water line froze since the freezer had to run so much


It is possible the water line inside the freezer door froze . Remove the bottom kick plate and follow the white tubing about 6" to a coupling . Push in on the white ring and at the same time , pullout on the tubing . Push the water dispensor , and if water comes out of the hose going under the fridge , this means the line is frozen in the door . If no water comes out , it means the water tank at the bottom of the fridge section (behind crispers ) is probably frozen . A hair dryer should work on the tank , but , a different procedure will be needed to thaw the door . Come back if door is frozen for the procedure .

its possible that your water tank has frozen up, try turning the refrig off and leave the doors open for about 10-15 mins and try it again. if that works just reset temp controls a little lower..
