It is possible that your water filters are getting plugged. Have you changed any filters lately? The meat pan lever may also be turned to the coldest position and on units that have a low water usage, this will also cause the tank to freeze. You will want to lower the meat drawer setting or use more water from the door. This does not apply to Top Mount water dispenser models, because they do not have a reservoir. Problem requiring service, glass fill time.

Dispenser drips water constantly will be a water valve problem, and should be checked by a service technician. If you would like to schedule a service appointment, please contact GE Consumer Service at 1-800-432-2737 or schedule a service appointment on-line.
Dribble as defined as a small amount of water (few drops) that may miss the glass ONLY AFTER USAGE. This is due to a delay in the overall system.
Dribble can be minimized by the following actions:
- Purge the tank, by holding down the dispenser for 2 to 3 minutes, to remove any trapped air that may be building pressure and causing the dribble. - A few drops is normal, but you can also prevent water from missing the glass and dripping down the cradle area by moving glass slower when removing it from the cradle. - You may need to periodically empty the recess grill and clean out underneath it to prevent overfilling and water dripping down the front of the refrigerator.
Also, remember the dispenser in the door will not operate unless the door is closed
You have two points where you can check the dispenser water. At the rear where the water supply comes in is the water inlet valve. If you disconnect the dispenser water line and then see if the water comes out when you try the dispenser. You should hear the valve work when you try the dispenser. If you don't hear it there is a dispenser actuator switch problem. If you do hear it but water doesn't work here there is a valve or water supply problem. If it's normal, disconnect it at the bottom of the freezer door and try again.If it's normal here it may be frozen in the door. If this is the case open the door till it thaws. A blanket over the opening will prevent thawing of all the food.
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!
I have the exact same problem. Ice maker works but nothing at the water dispenser. The light come on when I press the lever and I hear a click. But nothing like water "trying" to be pumped. I am nervous it is more than just a frozen water line. Anyone else have this problem or a solution?
Unplug the female connector on tear of refrigerator on the side that feed the dispenser control. With a voltage meter place the 2 probes while some presses the dispense water control. You should get 120 volts there when the dispenser switch. Thanks Sea Breeze
most likely the water line for the dispenser has frozen in one of 2 places. the first place to check and the easiest is the water tank behind the crisper drawers in the fresh food compartment. what i would do is use a hair dryer to warm the tanke and see if it will start working again. the next place that is common for it to freeze is in the freezer door. the only way to fix this is to leave the door open for a while to allow it to thaw out.
If I'm not mistaken I think there is a recall for some of the
GE sxs refrig that addresses the water line freezing in the door. you may want to all GE and heck on that. good luck peyton
