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.

Water dispenser has ceased dispensing water.


Water tube is frozen inside the door. Bad design. I use boiling water, a small plastic flexible tube and appropriate plastic syringe to force very hot water into the tube pushing the small tube into the dispenser tube. At some point it will stop because of the Ice blockage, more hot water through the small tube will soon unblock the line. A retrofit "heater" was available at appliance parts stores. I installed one. It stopped working and I haven't bothered with another. The Ice supply line is separate from the water dispenser and Y's somewhere to get water into the hinge for the door access to the Water dispenser in the door. Hope this helps.

Have changed water filter but water dispenser not working


Does it still make ice cubes??? If yes then its not the filter. It may be one of these problems. !/2 the water inlet valve may be defective. 1/2 is for the icemaker the other 1/2 is for the water dispenser. Some companies have had problems with the water line inside the freezer door actually freezing up. Is some cases a heater kit is required to be installed in the door dispenser area. With out a brand/model number I can't be more exact.

GSL25JFXNLB water flow to dispenser seems to freeze up. I leave light on in dispenser area and seems to free it up. Any particular problem with the dispenser?


Hi,

Some models had a service kit for a dispenser heated applied at the water outlet on the door. Before you go hunting for this kit, open the freezer door and knob with your hand (like a door) on the inside door liner. Does it sound hollow or solid? If hollow the heater will work for you, if solid, the heater will not work because the inside of the door is frozen and only fix was to replace the door.

I hope this helps, good luck

Piston seal pack mark 89


There is a retrofit kit to replace this that prevents the piston from binding and freezing up. It is available at Culligan.

Water dispenser stopped working. Water valve works


A major problem with the ge side by side refrigerators with metal liners is water freeze-up inside the door of the freezer. Short term repair is to heat the dispenser area CAREFULLY with a hair dryer right at the point where the water spout comes out.
The long term fix involves installing a heater in the dispenser part number wr49x10173 @$60. The kit comes with installation instructions..
Let me know if you have any questions!!
Good luck!

GE Profile Icemaker freezing up; water freezes down inside wall of freezer; icemaker making ice, very slowly, but will not dispense. Water is still dispensing


This sounds like your water valve is not completely closing allowing water to drip and freeze. First check to make sure that the water tube going into the cup of the ice maker is lined up correctly and not causing this problem - if it is lined up correctly then replace the water valve on the back of the refrigerator that your main line is connected to.

GE gss22sgrf sidebyside water dispenser does not work, ice does


these unit have a problem with the water line freezing inside the freezer door. ge makes a tape style heater that goes inside the dispenser area to give just enough heat to keep it from freezing the water line.
you can try to change the freezer settings, warmer, clean the coils at the back of the unit and leave the freezer door open for 20-30 minute to allow the door to warm up and that will be a temporary fix to allow water to flow until you can get the heater kit.
