GE Refrigerator model #gss25sgress Water dispenser problem

I have a GE Refrigerator model #gss25sgress. The problem I have is that the water doesnt flow to the water dispenser but to the ice maker. I have Isolated the problem to the line in the door going to the Water dispenser. When I push the button to ask for water the water flows to the connector under the door but not to the dispenser. I already forced air with an air compressor through and there isn't any air going through the door to the dispenser. Is there a valve in the door please help.

What you describe was a common problem with this model and one that still pops up. Your refrig *might* qualify for an upgrade under terms of a program GE initiated a few years ago. Call 800-432-2737 first it might save you a service call

Water dispenser not working GE model GSH25JSX13

Do you hear a slight buzzing when you try to get water?? If yes, you may have a frozen water line inside the freezer door. GE had some problems with those models. They offer a heater kit that has to be installed in the dispenser area of the freezer door. Once installed, in about a day the water line should be defrosted enough to dispense water again. If you don't hear that buzzing sound when trying to get water, you could have a bad inlet valve which is at the lower back of the refrigerator where your house water line hook to the refrigerator.

Water will not dispence in ge refrigerator model number gsl25jfpa bs

Your line is frozen. Frozen water dispenser line is a problem with this model. There are number of solutions.

1. Contact GE 800 386-1215, option 5 and ask for WR49X10173 heater kit. There is a video to help you install it. Try to get GE to send you the fix free.
2. Get a hair dryer and heat the dispensing box until the water dispenser works. This is not a permanent solution, though, and it takes 15 to 30 minutes. Hang a long beach towel or blanket over the open freezer to save the cold air.
3. Place a long, clean fishing line or weed wacker line up the water dispenser line. When it freezes, pull carefully to dislodge the frozen water.
4. Buy another brand of refrigerator and let GE know they make inferior products.

After replacing the water filter on my ge side by side fridge, water still doesnt come out.

these units have a problem with the water line freezing inside the dispenser area.
they have a repair kit for this problem.
it is a tape type of heater that gets put into the dispenser area. it will take a few days to warm up and then it will have water flow again.
you can get it from your local parts house. just give them the model number and they should have it on hand as this is very common.
