Yes, it is a fairly common problem. The water line has been known to freeze, thus keeping it from flowing normally. Two solutions appear to be 1). having a very small heating unit installed which keeps the line from freezing or 2) GE has been replacing some of the doors to fix the issue.

The heater solution is approximately $125 when done by a GE tech.

There are numerous discussions online about the problem. Here is a link to one of them.

Water dispensor stoppedworking


If the light and ice dispenser on the front panel works and If your fridge is 4 years old or older, the insulation in the freezer door has most likely deteriorated and the water in the tube feeding the water dispenser has probably frozen. Open the freezer door, put a blanket over the food to keep it from defrosting, and use a blow dryer to defrost the door. Blow the hot air on the flat panel inside the door (the backside of the water dispenser). Close the door about every 5 minutes to check to see if the water works. Once the water begins to flow, you have successfully defrosted the ice in the tube. Defrosting the door works for about 12 hours until it freezes again. To solve this problem, I placed a 10" weedeater line up thorugh the dispenser nozzle leaving about 1/8 of an inch sticking out. When the line freezes again, pull out the weedeater line, dispense water to free the ice, and then reinsert the weadeater line. I keep the line in all the time...it works great! If the light or ice dispenser do not work, the problem may be *********** board.

GE gss22sgrf sidebyside water dispenser does not work, ice does


these unit have a problem with the water line freezing inside the freezer door. ge makes a tape style heater that goes inside the dispenser area to give just enough heat to keep it from freezing the water line.
you can try to change the freezer settings, warmer, clean the coils at the back of the unit and leave the freezer door open for 20-30 minute to allow the door to warm up and that will be a temporary fix to allow water to flow until you can get the heater kit.

I have a GE refrigerator with water and ice through the door. the water through the door has stopped working. the ice cube section is functioning.


A common fault on some GE models is that the water line freezes where it passes through the freezer. The fix is to leave the lamp for the water dispenser on overnight, or defrost the unit manually.

Sometimes you can fix this with a hairdryer, but this can cause fire/melted plastic/electrocution issues.

GE side by side with ice and water in door


This is a problem with my GE side by side also. It only happens occassionally and there doesn't seem to be any fix. I've had GE repair service here more than once. It seems that the insulation in the door is insufficient to keep the water line from freezing up. Small wonder GE is part of this awful financial mess.

the water line is frozen inside the door. very common ge problem. you can defrost the dispenser area with a hair dryer. it takes about 30 min to do. it will freeze up again. if the frig is less than 3 years old, even though it out of warranty you can argue with ge and youll get a new door to fix the problem
