GE side by side W/ ice and water dispense

I have noticed that my frig. is running all the time and the freezer side is still cold but the frig side is warming steadily. Now I had a repairman in about 2 years ago and he replaced some part to do with the timer and some heater system i believe. Could it be this again? I have noticed some ice forming on the back of the freezer again.

GE Side By Side Ice Machine & Water dispenser not getting water

you may have a pin hole in your water line to your dispenser or you could be leaking at the water valve itself on the water dispenser side. you'll have to pull the refrigerator out from the wall and look where the main water line goes into the back of the refrigerator. you will probably have to take the back off to see. be sure you put the back of the refrigerator back when you are through.

I opened the door on this frig this morning and water poured out like a small river! It filled the frig, and leaked below into the basement. Horrible! I noticed the water streaming out of the built-in...

obviously a filter leak. the water shuts off when the filter is removed. either it wasn't installed properly or it has a bad gasket. as for the fridge getting warm, the water probably collected and froze to the evaporator coils and now resrticts the cold air flow. you need to turn off the fridge, empty it out, leave the freezer door open, and let the coils defrost on their own. or remove the back panel in the freezer and defrost the coils with a hair dryer. you will need to soak up some water, but not nearly as much. once it's defrosted, dry it out, close the doors and turn it on while it's empty. when it's cold enough, replace the food.

Freezer quit freezing


you can try this suggestion first.

if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.

any further question let me know.

GE side by side fridge/freezer. Water stopped comming out the dispenser..


If your frig only has a dispenser for water, the first thing you need to check, is the shut off valve, which is sometimes under the kitchen sink, and make sure nobody turned it off for some reason.
If you have a frig that dispenses both ice and water, and only the ice is working but you aren’t getting any water, then it is probably the water side of the dual water valve that has gone out. A lot of times the water side of the valve will go out before the icemaker side, because it tends to be on longer due to people filling up glasses and pitchers.
If you hear water running when you try and get water, then you probably have a leak in the water line that goes to the dispenser.
Another thing that is rare is the water will freeze in the reservoir that is behind the crisper drawers in the fresh food compartment. This sometimes happens when it isn’t used enough.

Water and ice will not dispense

I had the same problem. I followed stills' suggestion and used a weed **** wire to push through the water spout. The weed **** did not go past more than 2-3 inches. Then I emptied the ice bin, used the hair dryer right close to the spout both from the outside and from the inside of the freezer door. After about a couple of minutes it started working! Now, just to check if the weed **** wire will go in more than a few inches I pushed it through. Now I was able to go well past 6 inches. So, before even you start addressing this problem try pushing through a weed **** line and if it is blocked then your problem is in the door. If not, then the problem may be in the reservoir at the refrigerator side.
