Ge frig not working some times

Our frig is getting short circuited? and we hear the clicking sound that stops most time if we press the water cup dispensor. we do not have the water dispensor hooked up. i have opened the back panels up and have found that the fan down below to not be running when there is cliking sound. have cleaned out down below with vacum and blown air. have disconnected the lines running to the circuit board and then reconnect that operate the fan. does not seem to make any difference. the fan blade operates smoothly when running. is there something going on with the circuit board? how can icheck anything more? bought the frig in 10/05 from home depot. sometimes now the frig stops working in the cooling of things. we get it going again,but this should not be happening. thanks.

    It is really a piece of junk!!!

Contact GE and notify them of the problem. Also let them know that you have located numerous other cases of the problem online of people with the same problem. They will set up a service call and will cover the cost of the parts.

Hi The ice and water dispenser stopped working.

The first thing I would check is the plug eather under the plastic hinge cap on top of the door hinge or behind the grill at the bottom hinge to see if it hasn't come loose.
I would check to see if when you push the switch if there is current going to the water inlet valve located at the rear of the frig.
Shut the water off for the frig and disconect the line from the water inlet valve. Put the end of the hose into a pail and turn it on to see if you have good water flow to the valve.
If you have current (120 Volts) at the valve and still no water going through the valve, replace the inlet valve.

Clicking noise with my GE GSS22WGP

Your PTC relay is bad it protects the compressor from over heating and overloading. You need to replace it.

First be sure to unplug frig. Remove the cardboard cover that covers most backs of the frig units. Remove the plastic cover that is on the side of compressor. It is held on with a metal clip. Now you should be able to see the relay pry the relay straight off. note the wiring and position of relay. Only three prongs on compressor. Go to a parts house for appliance's and with your make and model number should be able to get a new one. Let me know if you need any more help. ken

Water dispenser not working all the time

I think you are correct that its the switch that the push bar hits is faulty. Try a serch on line for applince parts and enter you make etc. This should provide a break down of the part and a idea what is needed to take apart/off to get to it.

TFX22CR GE refrigerator TFX22CRXFWW does Not dispense ice.

I had this problem with a similar refrigerator. The problem was the slide switch burns itself especially if you slide it from ice to water while holding the glass in to get ice and water into your glass. Better to slide it to ice, press the glass in to get ice, release the glass to stop the ice, slide the switch to water, then press the glass in again to get water. I "fixed" mine by removing the control panel and soldering some of the connections on the slide switch together so that we now have no crushed ice function, but the ice cubes work again. You can also replace the circuit board in the control panel to restore it to like-new operation. I could not find a place to order just the slide switch.

Not sure if this is the same problem with your unit, but sounds the same.

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 in door will not work

I need to know the make and model # to more accurately help you. First and foremost, you will need to thaw your holding tank with a NOT use heat gun or hair dryers. The problem could be one of several but I would start by checking the solenoid that supplies the dispenser to see if it is burned out. It is usually located in the back lower part of frig where the water inlet line hooks to. There are usually 2 solenoids.... the ice maker and the dispenser. Unplug the frig before testing these. The resistance across the ice maker and dispenser are usually the same. If the dispenser solenoid is "open" on the ohm meter then the whole water supply valve needs replaced. Another problem with some units where the dispenser is on the FREEZER side...the lines behind the door will freeze. I've seen this with LG's and GE's. They make a special heater modification for units notorious for this latter problem.

Frig and feezer stopped working

It sounds like the overload and relay on the compressor.If the problem isn't that then you need a compressor.
