Re: water dispenser isn't working

Remove your meat pan in the refer and check the dispenser. It may be a reservoir type or just a coil of tubing. Check and make sure water is coming into the tube. There is a place to check sometimes at the bottom of the refer door. Sometimes there is a connection that can be taken loose to check and make sure water is making it to the door. Check that. If your filter is a year old replace it. I'm sure it needs it. Check those possibilities then check where the water comes into the refer. Trace it to the solenoid underneath the refer then make sure the solenoid is opening to allow water through.

Ice Maker working, but water not dispensing

There are two sides to a dual water control valve. One side fills the ice maker and the other side is the dispenser. If one side goes bad you will need to replace the whole dual water control valve. If your model is the GSL22JFXLB your replacement is the=> WR57X10032 Water Inlet Valve

This part is found on the rear of your refrigerator near floor where the water from your home hooks up to your refrigerator, Thanks Sea Breeze

GE side by side refrigerator: water/ice dispensor

I bought a brand new smartwater replacement filter and after a very short time, my water stopped coming through the door.. took out the new replacement filter and inserted a brand new one .. problem solved.. apparently some of the g.e. smartwater filter replacement cartridges don't have the high enough two plastic inserts which are attached to them at the top of the filter when you screw them on... if you have taken your cartridge in and out a few times, i think it wears down the plastic so it doesn't fit properly and won't put up whatever it is supposed to push up to make the water come through.. I personally think this is a g.e. problem with the replacement filters...

Water dispenser not working but ice maker does

The water line freezes inside the freezer door. There is now an add-on water line heater you can install to thaw the line.
