SOURCE: GE Profile side by side fridge - water dispenser doesn't work

More than likely, your water line is freezing up in the door. You can remove all of the ice cubes and lower the freezer temp to about 3. Leave the freezer door open for about 5 minutes or so and if this does not work, leave the door open a little longer. Also, disconnect the water line at the base of the freezer door, near the floor, and press the dispenser lever. If you have water there, you most likely have a frozen line in the door. Changing the water filter often will help but it is not the answer and is can get quite expensive. By the way, Make sure to hold the dispenser lever forward for at least a couple of minutes each time you test for water flow. If you do not get water at the connector at the base of the door after you have disconnected the line, you have a problem with the valve in the back of the refrigerator.

SOURCE: water dispenser not working

First of all if your water dispenser is working then we know that the control panel is getting power. If not open the door and manually press the door switch to see of the switch is working properly. The switch will cut power to the dispenser to prevent operation while the door is open. Second you need to check the wiring at the hinge to see if there is a break in it. if you are still having trouble please respond with a model number.

Sounds like a bad water solinoid valve.

SOURCE: GE Fridge Not Dispensing water

First place to start is in the fridge. Look behind the crisper drawers for the water tank. It may have frozen at the outlet line. Try thawing it out with a hair dryer or a heat gun, being careful of course not to melt anything.

There is no water coming from door water dispenser


I don't have a GE side by side, I have a Cafe bottom freezer. Water dispenses from the inside. Occasionally, the water has stopped working. Each time I've replaced the water filter, and that has solved the problem, not immediately, but after a few hours to a day. That's the best suggestion I can come up with, but remember ours is a similar, but not identical, refrigerator.

Not getting any water out of the dispenser, but its making ice


The water dispenser on my GE profile fridge stopped working for a couple days. The refrigerator and freezer temperatures have fluctuated over the past several months causing fridge items to periodically freeze and freezer items to periodically thaw. GE tech came today identified a bad circuit board, which he replaced for a cool $300. Ouch. Fridge is only three years old. Oh yeah, the icemaker also has a broken tab which causes it to jam every couple weeks. We have GE Profile appliances throughout our kitchen and they all work great except for the fridge :-( I hope GE engineers read this post. If so, get to work! LOL

Ge fridge- water dispenser in door wont work yet ice maker does.


There are a few reasons for this. Most common, is the water filter. After a period of time(literage usage) the filter eventually blocks up.Flow will not continue until a new one is installed. On occasion, the water line in the freezer ices up, but doesn't often happen. If so, you will need to defrost freezer until pipe is no longer iced up(set freezer to about -20 degrees celsius).or very possible, water solenoid at the back of the fridge has gone faulty.You will need help with this check,There will be 2 valves. Very possibly it will be the RHS one at the back. Switch water supply off at the back then go to the water solenoids at the back of the fridge.and disconnect the one pipe on the solenoid that leads into the fridge. Open fridge water tap again and ask member to quickly press water dispenser lever.Note if water squirts out for that brief period.. If not, reconnect pipe again then do the same disconnection to the second solenoid. If no water comes out then,(make sure water is open), then the water valve needs to be replaced.

Icemaker wont dispense water. worked last night but not today.


without knowing model #, i would check to see if the unit has a resevior for drinking water in the fridge side, could be something as simple as the temp set too low in fridge side and freezing the res. check that out. or it could be that your water valve in the back is faulty. take the hose off in back and have someone push the dispenser lever in the front. if it squirts your valve is good and you probably have somekind of blockage in the plastic tubing somewhere. solid 12 gauge wire works great for that. just run it in the tubing but be careful, you dont want to damage it. good luck.
