Question about GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator
It seems that the frozen waterline is the prevailing problem. Mine finally froze after 4 years...thank you all for your advise! I also checked to make sure that I had water to the refrigerator. I did. Instead of making a cardboard cutout for the refrigerator, I used our couch pillows and stuffed them into the freezer. They were a fast insulating fix, mold-able and a higher insulating value than the cardboard. 10 minutes with my wife's hairdryer and the problem was solved! Thank you all...

SOURCE: no water but ice is fine
Two possibilities are water solenoids on back of refrigerator. Switch the wiring on the two solenoids so when you ask for ice it will dispense water. If you get water when you ask for ice the solenoid is bad. If still nothing happens the control switch in the door were you switch from water to ice may be bad. When you determin you have found the problem return the wires to there correct solenoids. Hope this helps, Sea Breeze

Check the connector at the bottom of the freezer door first , you should also be able to hear the micro switch click when you press the paddle

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...

Hi Urban Woman,
Unfortunately, your dispenser interface board has gone to appliance parts heaven and needs to be replaced. Fortunately it's relatively cheap. If I recall correctly, all you have to do to access the dispenser board is use a small flat screwdriver. There are 2 locking "tabs"/slots on either side and underneath the board (you will barely be able to see it, they're just that small).
Of course you already know that you need to unplug the fridge before doing any repairs so I can skip that part.
Insert your screwdriver into those slots and pry the bottom of the board out. Then grasp it with your hands and remove it completely. There are three wire bundles on it, remove them and re-install them on the new board. Then simply snap the new board into place.
This should take maybe 15 minutes to do... super easy job.
p.s. Here's a link to the service manual, but the removal of the dispenser board is not in it (everything else is, though, so it may come in handy later)
p.s.s. Since you're going to be unplugging the fridge for the repair, you ought to go to Home Depot and pick up one of these to plug it back into. Transient voltage spikes are most likely the cause of all your woes... including the main board that was replaced.
