Ice maker is leaking into the tray where the ice is dispensed causing the ice to become embedded into the tray

I have a GE side by side model #SSS25KFMC WW and my issue is that when the water is dispensed into the tray it is also leaking water into the holding tray so everytime it makes ice the next time it pours the water some of it is coming into the holding tray causing the ice to become frozen into the tray. Is there something that I should be looking at specifically to locate the problem????????

    the flap that lets the ice dispense may not be closing as it is supposed to. I have had to replace my solenoid once before and am ordering parts for it again. You can go to GE site and get parts list and replace yourself or get a technician to do it for you.

    I have the same problem, a little trickle of water goes into the ice tray then freezing all the ice cubes into one mass. I looked at the solenoid valve but it is sealed plastic and cannot be opened to clean out any debris. This occurs during ice making not when the ice maker arm is in the off position. Im not sure if I should be replacing the valve or if there is something wrong in the ice maker itself. I cant see any breaks in the water hose.

    I have the same problem you reported. What was the final fix for your problem? Someone mentioned I need to change the Water Value Asm but wanted to know what you have done to fix this issue.

    I have the same problem. When unpluging the ice maker the water then will shut off and the solenoid appears to be working and not leaking ?? There is a adjusting screw +/- at the motor drive will adjusting this screw make a difference to the water flow quanty to the fill tray//

The ice maker usually is an easily removable assembly, lift and pull or something like that. It may be the little water line has cracked, plastic don't like being cold.

How do you fix the water dispenser on a GE side by side refrigerator model GSS201EPD WW


Here are a couple of possible problems. Most common one is a defective water inlet valve. It is the plastic assembly at the lower back area where the house water connects to. On dispenser systems it is actually 2 valves in one unit---half lets water in to icemaker---the other half lets water dispense at door. It is electrically operated so if half goes bad , the other half can still work. If bad it needs replaced as a complete unit.
Second possible problem with some GE side by side models is they had problems with the water line in the door going to the dispenser sometime would freeze up. They came out with a heater kit that needs installed in the dispenser area to defrost the water line. Call GE service with your model number and they may be able to tell you if you need that kit installed.

I have a GE Refrigerator GSS22JFMD WW with a ice


The water supply in the recessed part of your door is frozen. very common with this model. You will need to turn unit off and with freezer door open use hairdryer on the area where water dispenses and on the recessed area as well. This is time consuming but only other remedy is to leave off and door open for 24 hours. hope this helps.

Rust ruining door at lower corners of ice/water dispenser.


when you dispense ice or water, you are allowing the drip tray to overfill and the water builds underneath the tray until the water reaches the point were it will leak down the front of the door. the water will rust the panel beyond repair. you will have to replace the whole door at this point. hope this helps.

Something leaking from dispenser frame


You can remove the frame around the dispenser by pulling it gently and then you access to the screws that hold the dispenser in place. Could be a spillage behind the frame. Good Luck.

Water leaking out of freezer door water dispenser


The fill valve that supplies the water may not be shutting off completely. Also check to see that the lever is closing completely.

GE refrigerator


this may be water from the defrost cycle. if this drains to tray over compressor, check tray is not too full (water evaporates from heat of compressor) otherwise defrost water will go to a seperate container which may have a split or is overflowing. fault can also be caused by poor door seals which would produce too much ice on evaporator pipes
