It sounds like you just have a leak at the back. Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser and watch on the back for where the water may be leaking before it gets up to the ice maker.

No ice, water does not fill ice maker, but water flow is OK.


if Ice maker cycles and you get no water into it you have a clogged/frozen fill tube. If a broken line the water would go on your floor every 15 min. None of those indicates your refrig valve is bad. Dual solenoid water side works Ice doesn't.

Ice maker stopped working. the water and ice dispense from the door, but it does not make any NEW ice...


The water tube to the icemaker inside the refrig is frozen up. Thaw out with your hair dryer. To make sure the tube is clear. Shut of the water to the refrig, disconnect the inlet water line to the icemaker. Insert a flexable through the connector fitting, I used a zip tie. The flexable item should go all the way to the icemaker

Solution #2 Replace the "water inlet valve" at bottom back right of refrig. Easy To Do.

Ge profile side by side is not dispensing water, have removed the line at door and there is not water coming out. What do I do next.


At the bottom of the freezer door ( remove the kick plate , 1 screw on each side ) , there will be a water line . Follow this line , about 6 " to a connector . Push in on the white ring and pull out the line , at the same time . Activate the water dispensor pad and see if water flows from the line under the refrig . If it does , 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 . If no water comes from the line under the refrig , while activating the pad , then replace the water valve , behind the refrig , the piece the wall water line connects to on the refrig .
If the door line is frozen , GE has a dispensor heater , pt # WR49X10173 , to help eliminate the freezing of the line .

The line to our ice maker is frozen solid with ice. Do you know how to get the ice out of it? I'd prefer to not have to defrost the whole thing.


Pull the refrig out from the wall and you will see where the single tube to the ice maker goes . Try removing the line housing straight out the back , and thawing at the sink . Or , 2 screws hold the ice maker on . Remove the ice maker and thaw the line with a hair dryer . You will need to replace the water valve ( the piece the wall water line connects to on the refrig ) due to a seeping problem . When the valve does not close completely , drops will seep into the fill tube and freeze , thereby , blocking the normal rate of water , entering the ice maker .

My GE side by side ice maker quit making ice, no water sees to be entering the unit.what do i check for?


Pour 2 / 3 cup of water into the ice maker .
If it dumps the cubes , but does not refill with water , replace the dual water valve behind the refrig . This is the piece , the wall water line connects to , on the refrig .
If it does not dump the cubes , replace the ice maker .

We have a GE Profile refrig, circa 1995. The ice


If you are sure it is caused by the ice maker or if it is not it can be fixed. The only way an ice maker would leak like that is if ice is blocking the inlet tube and when the water comes on the water is spewed in a different direction than the ice maker. Most times this is caused by a slow leak in the water control valve for the ice maker side at the rear of the refrigerator. You can stop the problem by melting the ice in the fill tube with a hair dryer and keeping an eye on it until you see ice beginning to build up there again. That would indicate a slow leak in the water control valve that is not closing all the way when off. The other reason for large pools of ice in the freezer is a frozen over defrost condensate drain behind the cover in the rear of the freezer and would require you to unplug power and remove the rear panel. I will try to get some photos and a link shortly that covers that problem a lot more in just a few minutes. Sea Breeze

Ice maker not making ice. Water disp inside frig disp water.


the line that gives water to the ice maker, every time the water comes down it lives a drip of water that turns to ice blocking the line, get some hot water and a towel and place the hot wet towel on top of the line intel it melts the ice in side the line. it happens to my frige at list once a year. if that is not the problem the valve that supplies water tho the ice maker needs replacing, it's behind the frige at the bottom, where the line coming from the house meets the frige.
