Question about GE Refrigerators

1 Answer

The water and ice dispenser are not working. When I try to use the water dispenser it doesn't sound like anything is working (no sounds) as opposed to the ice dispenser to which I can hear the motor running. It seems like no water is not getting into the refrigerator system because neither water or NEW ice is being produced from the machine. Therefore I believe something might be clogged or the system just needs to be fixed? How do I check up on the problem or even better, how do I fix this problem? Any suggestions?

At the rear of the refrigerator is a water solenoid valve, you need to check for voltage at the solenoid valve while someone calls for water. If voltage is present, you need to replace the solenoid valve

Why is the water running directly into the ice dispenser and running out of the door when we are not pushing the lever to get water?


Sounds like the water valve is stuck or the wiring or switch is defective. As both ice and water are a problem it sounds more like a defective water valve.

GE GSH25JFRF BB ice maker doesn't dispense. Water dispenses and ice maker makes ice but won't come out.


There should be a plastice hinge cover on the left top hinge on freezer door. Take it off and press the plug together firmly. Try that and let me know, Sea Breeze

GE Refrigerator Model GSH22SGRBSS NO WATER TO THE FRONT DOOR DISPENSER. ICE OK


Generally, the path to the water dispenser is as follows: water comes in from the wall, goes through a solenoid (valve), and through some tubing to a reservoir behind the fruit and vegetable compartments. From that reservoir, more tubing goes down under the refrigerator, then up near the bottom of the door hinge of the door that has the water dispenser.

First, listen for if there is a water running sound when you try to use the water dispenser. If there is not, then most likely there is no water coming from the supply at the wall, or the main solenoid where the water comes in is not working. If ice is being dispensed, you know that the switch that you press with your cup is good, but that doesn't mean that water is coming in to make new ice. It could be just existing ice being dispensed.

If you DO hear a water running sound, then something is leaking, possibly onto your floor. Follow the path of the water in the first paragraph to locate the leak. Could be that some tubing came off, or burst.

Ice & Water Dispenser Suddenly Dysfunctional; LED lights, too!


Cory, you sound like you have a bad water valve as well as a bad control board for your dispensor. If you've had any storms in your area in the past 4 - 6 weeks, it's very possible that the storm took both parts out.

We have parts for GE as well as mots other major brands, so please give us a call with your complete model number and we will get your parts out to you right away!

We hope this solves your problem and we look forward to being able to assist you with future issues.

Have a great evening.
