Question about GE Profile 23.1 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Thru-the-Door Ice and Water - High-Gloss White
Got a new PSI235gmd about 9 years ago. Had numerous problems over the years. The latest is one the repair person can't fix. From time to time (ntermitant problem), the water runs out of the dispensor on the door after I fill a glass. Just keeps running out. I have to pull out the refrig and turn off water in the wall. Later, if I turn it on again, everything works OK for awhile, the same problem again (maybe months later). Physically pulling out the little water lever does not stop the water.
HI, Ok, if this leak is coming directly from the water outlet line at the dispenser section, this will be the result of a damaged inlet water valve assembly. There may be some hard mineral build up in this particular valve assembly that is causing the valve to not close properly. This build up will damage the solenoid based valve assembly, thus creating the small continuous leak at the dispenser. Use my procedure to correct this issue.
The water inlet valve is located behind your refrigerator. Find the water supply line coming into the valve and turn it off at the source (typically under the sink or behind your unit). Disconnect the supply line. Remove the screws that secure the inlet valve in place.
The water inlet valve is connected by two wires. Label the wire placement on the water inlet valve before disconnecting the wires. The wires are connected to the terminals with slip on connectors
Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (dont pull on the wire). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If the connectors are corroded they should be replaced.
Inspect the filter screen where the supply line connects. Remove any debris or deposits that may have built up using a toothbrush, or warm running water. If you cannot clear, it will be necessary to replace the valve (the filter is not removable on most inlet valves).
Test the water inlet valve for continuity using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X100 (if available, otherwise use the nearest ohm setting). Place a probe on each terminal. The multimeter should display a reading of 200 to 500 ohms(standard). A Close inspection of the inlet valve and especially the coil, may reveal the exact ohm resistance rating to test for. If the water inlet valve does not pass this test, it should be replaced.
