Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator

2 Answers

I push the water dispenser and no water and no sound but a click.

I had this happen about a year ago and I took off the filter and run some water thru and it worked again. This time I took the hose off at the bottom and no water came out. I cleaned the filter which is onlyt 3mths old.Then I check to make sure water was getting to the filter and it is. Then I pushed on the water disenser and after about a minute I got water. the next day I tryed the water and the same no water and just a click.

maybe not related but the top vent in the non- freeze part is not blowing any cold air. There is nothing coming from it at all.

Sounds like the water pump is faulty or the water is freezing inside the tube and you could have an ice blockage. GE does have a heater available for this unit. You have to contact them directly to get this part at 1-800-626-2005 This is a repair best left to a professional if under warranty still. Other option is to do it yourself but it would not be easy if you are not prepared to tackle it.

    I do feel bad for your situation. I am sure you paid big money for it a few years ago. I suggested probable problems because I have not seen it, I cant give you a for sure answer because there may be more than what I suggested wrong with it including rust deposits. . The cost could easily run into over a $1000. Read this link about GE refrigerators and decide for yourself.
    My suggestion would be to re-order that fridge and stay away from GE. Good Luck

Water not dispensing

new installs require one to hold down the dispense button sometimes as long as 3 min to allow the water to make its way thru the filter and lines and allow the air to get out , also if you have a well , I have run across one that didn't have enough pressure to push thru the filter when it was new ,as it takes at least 40 psi to push thru a dry filter when its new , it doens get easyier when its wet

Why my refrigerator is leaking water from the top where the water filter is located?

Shut off water supply valve. Relieve water pressure by dispensing water. Unscrew water filter. Examine to see if the gasket is damaged or if filter was loose and just needed tightening. Or simply replace water filter with the correct water filter that your GE refrigerator calls for.

Hello, lost water in the house, now when it came back on, water dispensor has a slow drip (not sure if related)... the dispensor handle seems to be working fine... it dispenses water when pressed.. doesn't...

remove bottom grill.

look for tube which runs thru freezer door.

follow back towards underneath of machince/ find push fit connector.

remove pipe which run thru door from connector and blow thru quite hard. reconnect and press dispenser paddle to allow water back thru

this shhould solve problem in 9/10 cases if it doesn't then you will need your water inlet valve checked

IWater does not dispense.

Good day,
The hum is normal. That's the water valve in the rear of the machine being activated.
Lots of plumbing to be checked.
Water line starts at the dispensing outlet in the door, and runs thru the door to the bottom of the hinged side.
From there it goes to the filter,
'From there it travels under the machine into the cooling reservoir mounted back of the fresh food section behind the crispers.
From there it travels back out and runs to the water solenoid mounted on the back rear of the machine.
One of these lines or their fittings has failed.
It's a look-see repair.

Also, there is a remote chance the water line running inside the freezer door froze, causing this problem, and would require the machine be shut down (unplugged) and the door be allowed to defrost completely.

Whirlpool side by side, 7 years old. not making ice

try using a hair dryer to thaw out the trough and remove the ice. please note the ice will run all the way up into the tube where it comes thru the cabinet.
this may have occured from your recent filter change as a new filter introdues alot of air into the water system and will cause these tubes to freeze up. in the future right after you replace your filter be sure to run aout 1/2 to 1 gallon of water thru water dispenser to clear air out of system. thx peyton
