Water will not flow into ice maker


Not typical for both sides of your=> WR57X10032 Dual Water Control Valve
11_5_2012_9_53_11_pm.jpg


but this is possible. You will need to do some testing of the control valve found at the link above or HERE If there is no problem with the part then you will need to turn water off and disconnect water line feeding the refrigerator. Place the water line into a bucket and have someone turn water back on so you can see if there is something blocking or restricting flow to your refrigerator. I will be here to answer any questions you may have, Thanks Sea Breeze
Here is a manual=> GE Refrigerator Technical Service Manual

Water won't come out of dispenser. ice works fine


Your refrigerator is equipped with a dual water inlet solenoid valve assembly . It is likely that the solenoid valve that controls flow to the water dispenser is faulty. Click here for a tutorial on How to Test Inlet Valve.

No Ice. Replaced 4 solenoid water inlet valves. Icemaker spins around, but no water comes up. Any ideas?? Bruce


Follow the water source line on the back of the refrigerator to the shutoffvalve on the water supply. Turn the shutoff valve counterclockwise to open itfully. Inspect the water source line for kinks. Straighten the line to removekinks.Confirm water flows to solenoid one end. And also check freezer door is closed as it will sense solenoid to open to water flow into ice maker. Sometimes, water flow might be plugged by frosting. Check freezer setting temp 5 degree. Thanks.

Stopped making ice


First of all is the water flowing into the ice-maker? Check the solenoid valve which regulates this water flow to the dispenser & ice maker. If water is flowing in, the ice-maker's thermostat may have malfunctioned, since this thermostat is separate from that inside the fridge...........sodeep

I have a GE arctica profile - the water dispensing "bucket" somehow filled with water and froze over. Water spilled over and froze on other parts of the ice maker. Tried taking it out to thaw it -...


This is very possibly due to a defective water control valve and a fill tube being frozen over due to the constant flow of water to the ice maker when the water valve should be off. You will need to tun off the water supply before the valve behind the refrigerator before replacing the valve. If you could tell me which model number you have that will help us find the correct parts. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Water won't flow to the ice maker but does to the door dispenser


make sure that the solenoid valve that lets water into the ice maker is working. you can also double check that there is no blockage in the supply line and at the solenoid.

Water dispenser will come on at random times


are you talking about the lever where you put your glass to get water or the ice compartment if it where you put your glass to get water it could be that if the pressure is not strong enough to close the valve after you have taken a glass of water or a defective solenoid vavle thanks from gilles

No water or ice


ALWAYS CHECK FROM THE WATER SUPPLY LINE TO THE WATER SOLENOID VALVE ... TO ENSURE THAT YOU HAVE GOOD WATER FLOW ... IF WATER FLOW IS GOOD, SHUT "OFF" VALVE. THEN YOU CAN CHECK WATER SOLENOID VALVE STRAINER AND ORFICE TO SEE IF IT IS CLOGGED. (USUALLY LOCATED BEHIND FRIG.... INSIDE THE INLET SIDE OF THE VALVE THAT REQUIRES YOU OR SOMEONE TO REMOVE THE SUPPLY LINE BRASS NUT. (IN SOME CASES THE FITTINGS ARE NEOPREME) CREFULLY REMOVE THE STRAINER AND ORFICE ASSEMBLY ... IT IS SMALL !!! (CLEAN THEM THROUGHLLY). REPLACE ALL PARTS THE WAY YOU REMOVED THEM.... TO CHECK WATER SUPPLY SOLENOID OPERATION EASILY ... JUST USE A "METAL BUTTER KNIFE AND HOLD IT ABOUT 1/4" FROM THE TOP OF THE VALVE ... YOU SHOULD FEEL THE MAGNETIC PULL IF IT IS GOOD. LASTLY LOSEN THE NUT ON THE SIDE OF THE VALVE THAT LEADS INTO THE FRIG. TO CHECK FOR WATER FLOW. IF YOU HAVE WATER ... THEN THINK ABOUT CALLING A "LICENSED FACTORY-CERTIFIED COMPANY TO GET A "FLAT-RATE DIAGNOSTIC CHECK". UNFORTUNATELY THOUSANDAS OF CONSUMERS ARE BILKED BY SO CALLED FIX-IT-ALL HANDYMEN WHO LOOK TO REPLACE PARTS THAT CAN COST YOU HUNDREDS. NO WATER ??? NO ICE !!!
