Fridege drain pipe block


There are two likely sources for water build up in refrigerators.
  1. Most likely the defrost drain tube is either frozen over or plugged
  2. The ice maker or water dispenser have developed a leak.
Check the ice maker water dispenser first. Close off the water feed to the unit at the wall water hose connection. Protect the floor before rolling the machine out into the kitchen. A loaded refrigerator will score the kitchen from the weight of the wheels rolling across the flooring material.

Observe for a day or two if the water has stopped? If it has than repair of the ice maker or dispenser hose is required,

If not than more specific information model and make is required, The link shows how one individual has taken some initiative to analyze and correct this problem. If the defrost tube is blocked than disassemble to access the drain tube is required. Many of the designs have the drain tube internal not as the video shows an external tube. If it is "just frozen over" not plugged, than allowing the unit to defrost by emptying it out and with the doors open allow for the ice to melt. It will take some time for the tube to defrost. By pulling the front vent guard you can usually observe the tray where the drain empties into. If the tube has been frozen and opens the water should be seen dripping into the tray. I would try allowing for the unit to defrost the drain tube allowing for normal operation to return. If it happens again and again then adjustment to the drain tube or cleaning is required.

No water comming through my ge profile artica


Sometimes the water line freezes in the door. You may have to open the door for a time. If you can find where the water line goes in the door. there is a connector where you can disconnect the water line. this is a push connector. Push in the ring around the tube and pull the tube out. Press the water dispenser for a second. if water comes out the tube if frozen in the door. If not it could be the water valve. Push the tube back into the connector.

Why is my GE Profile Refrigerator ice maker no longer dispensing ice?


Ice dispenser doesn't work
  1. Dispenser control board
If the ice dispenser is not functioning at all the most likely cause is going to be the dispenser control board. The dispenser control board governs the major portion of the systematic functions of the dispenser and is less likely to be the issue if only certain components are malfunctioning. If the dispenser control board is at fault, it will need to be replaced.
  1. Water inlet valve & low water pressure from house supply
If the ice dispenser on your refrigerator is not working properly, one of the first things to consider as an issue is the water pressure to your appliance. The ice dispenser cannot properly function with a psi less than 20. If psi is appropriate, proceed to replace the water inlet valve to correct the issue. You may also be dealing with low household water pressure. This low flow can be examined by using a water pressure test gauge. Once the household water pressure is resolved, you can double check your refrigerator connection to ensure it is now flowing properly and that the ice dispenser is functioning.
  1. Water tube in door is frozen
If the ice dispenser is not working on your refrigerator, the issue could be a frozen water supply tube located in the door. Although this may be a tricky problem to locate, the first thing to do is find a connection point in the tube. After this has been found, attempt to blow air through the tube. If the air flows freely through the tube, it is not frozen and this is not the issue. If it does not, the tube is frozen and needs to be removed to thaw out. As it thaws, attempt to ascertain why it froze and correct the positioning of the tubing to prevent the issue from occurring again in the future.
  1. Dispenser switch
If the refrigerator ice dispenser is not working properly you could be dealing with a defective dispenser switch. Activated by the dispenser actuator, the switches are responsible for numerous actions including ice cube disbursement, type of ice, and water controls. The switch can be tested using an ohm meter and should be replaced if it does not reveal continuity.
  1. Door switch
If the refrigerator ice dispenser is not working, the functionality of the door switch can be inspected. This switch is responsible for turning on the light in the freezer and simultaneously turning off the ice dispenser when the freezer door is opened. If this switch malfunctions, it will show no continuity on the ohm meter and will require replacement. Appliance Repair Help Troubleshooting and Appliance Parts

No water


It is fairly common for the water tube in the door to freeze. Remove the front grill at the bottom of the refrigerator, find the water disconnect to the door and disconnect one side of the tube. Most newer connectors just have a little ring that you push in and this releases the tube. Push the water dispenser lever for just a second and see if water comes out the tube. If it does then the tubing in the door is frozen. You will have to shut off the refrigerator off for a while and leave the door open so the tube can defrost. Push the tube back into the connector under the refrigerator and wait. after an hour or two water should come out the dispenser. Another possibility id this doesn't work is the water tank is frozen in the fresh food section behind the crisper. Again you will have to shut off the refrigerator and let things thaw out.

Water dispenser does not work. When I depress the water dispense actuator, I have pressure at the bottom of the door,but none from the dispenser tube spout. I ran a wire up the tube from the bottom of the...


It could be the water valve side for the dispenser. So a couple of problems can be had with this description. 1. The electric solenoid for the valve is bad so it doesn't open the valve. 2.The valve itself could be bad so the solenoid opens it but nothing flows. 3. The water line could be frozen inside the door so no water flows. 4. The dispenser switch is bad or the plastic holder that holds the switch is bad so the switch fell out of its proper position. 5. The circuit board is bad.

Easy way to check is to pull out the fridge and take the water line off that valve by pressing down on the little ring around the line while pulling up on the line (tube thing). It should pull out easily(to reinsert just push the tubing back in without holding the little ring down, it goes in by itself and self-seals). With the tube out of the solenoid valve have someone operate the water dispenser lever and see if water shoots in your face ha ha. Read further if you're testing by yourself...

You can also do the same test from the front underside where the tubing has a coupling just under the door hinge area (so you can take the door off without cutting the tubing). Pull the lower skirt off the front of the refer and you should see the tubing and little coupling, it works the same, push down on the ring area and pull the tubing out. That way you don't have to move the fridge and can operate the dispenser lever yourself to see if water flows out the disconnected coupling. If water flows then the valve/switch/circuit board are working fine of course and your tubing is frozen at the door. You will need to defrost the tubing somehow, usually means a hairdryer blowing up into the dispenser area or turning off the whole refer and leaving the door open for a day.

If nothing happens (no water still) then you need to check if the solenoid is working electrically. Pull the fridge out and pull the wire plug off the ice maker valve and put the wire plug from the dispenser valve on the ice maker valve. Watch inside the ice maker and push the door dispenser lever, if water flows into the icemaker then the electrical door switch/circuit board is OK and the problem is likely the solenoid valve to the dispenser is bad or a frozen line in the door still. You get the idea, you can swap wires/valves and even tubing (if their the same size) around till you logically find the part not working. Remember in troubleshooting you're not really trying to find the broken part... you're trying to find ALL the other parts are working, which by process of elimination will lead you to the last part that ISN'T working.

If you are comfortable with electrical troubleshooting using a multimeter you can check for 110 vac at the plugs when the switch is press also but that depends on your tools and skill level, etc.

See this link for a diagram of that door assy and the parts involved.

Typically I'd be suspicious of the valve itself being bad or the circuit board, next on the list is the switch, and last would be the frozen line.

Wiper fluid keeps freezing drained all old wiper fluid and put in rain x -25 and it still froze


Rain X should have alleviated the freezing problem assuming that you circulated enough of it through the tubing and through the nozzles before it froze again.

Maybe try to disassemble the nozzle and soak in the Rain X solution or warm water to unfreeze it.

Trace the piping or tubing to the place where the frozen water exists and eliminate the ice by warming it up.

You may take the whole vehicle to a heated garage and let it thaw out, then circulate the fluid by pushing the button or switch to operate the windshield wiper fluid pump.

Easiest way to thaw out a possible frozen water reservoir in my GE side by side fridge?


Hair dryer is the easiest way to thaw. To find cause: Remove lower grill and disconnect the water line going through the freezer2_bing.gif door hinge. Usually it is a push lock fitting, which requires you to push the ring2_bing.gif on the end of the fitting toward the center of the fitting while pulling (not hard) on the plastic tube. Now place a pan under the separated plastic hose and try the water dispenser. If water comes out, your problem is a frozen water line in the freezer door. A warmer freezer temp may help, or you can order and install a WR49X10173 water tube heater2_bing.gif. (the heater may take 24 hours to thaw the line, but I have used it successfully several times. Cost about $50) If no water comes out the separated tube when you try to dispense water, reconnect the tube at the hinge by pushing the plastic line back into the fitting. Now, at the back of the refrig., disconnect the water line going from the water valve to the fresh foods compartment. Try to dispense water. No water at valve outlet = bad valve. Water dispensed from valve now = frozen water filter2_bing.gif or water line at back bottom of fresh foods compartment. (make sure you disconnect the right tube. If in doubt, disconnect them both, just get them back correctly so your icemaker continues to work) Send me additional comments if needed. Don't rate before you try all the steps.

If water filter or water line/ reservoir is frozen, thaw with a hair dryer. If reservoir is frozen, check to make sure there is no frost on back wall of inside freezer, preventing normal air flow, allowing cold air to enter fresh foods compartment through return air vent at lower back of fresh foods compartment, resulting in freezing of water line / reservoir and possibly food in bottom bin.

Not making ice . LED is flashing properly and put power to the valve in the back of the unit and it pushed water so appearantly something is not tellng the valve to open


Check the short black tube that is above the icemaker fill cup , to see if it is frozen . If so , then the water valve is " seeping " . Not closing completely and letting drops go thru which freezes in the tube . After a while , even if the ice maker calls for water , and the valve opens , it cannot fill the ice maker due to the frozen tube . Turn your freezer temp down , after removing as much ice from the tube as you can ( hair dryer may help ) . May take several days to thaw , since the tube runs between the top freezer liner and the outer cabinet . If not frozen , then the icemaker is bad .
