Dont leave freezer door open it will cause alot of problems. The ice maker will not call for water until the temp in freezer is cold enough. Remove the ice jam. If you remove from back of freezer it helps alot. Pull out of the back wall and remove ice be sure to put it back the way it was. Any further assistance please feel free to contact me.

Water dispenser not working ice maker okay water line to valves okay appears line in door frozen


GE has a fix for frozen water line in freezer door. WR49x10173 is a heater kit that is installed in the dispenser area. It uses a minor amount of energy, but enough to keep the area warm. You have to pull off the dispenser board, remove the 4 screws to remove the dispenser cradle and unplug the wiring. Then follow instructions to crimp on the heater wires. Allow about 3 days for frozen water line to defrost. .

I had the power out on my refrig for about 8 hours. Now the ice maker has stopped making ice. Water in the door works, but no water going to the ice maker and not dropping ice. Do I need to defrost the...


There is a dual acting water valve that feeds the ice maker and door water seperately.
If your power went out - chances are good the solenoid on the icemaker side of the valve has failed - so it will not open the valve on the demand of the icemaker timer.
To find out - you will need to check that there is voltage at the valve.

With a model #, I can help you better.

Thanks!!

Icemaker works fine but no water at door. Have water at bottom of door at quick connect but not at dispenser.


At the bottom of the freezer door ( remove the kick plate ) , there will be a water line . Follow this line , about 6 " to a connector . Push in on the white ring and pull out the line , at the same time . Activate the water dispensor pad and see if water flows from the line under the refrig . If it does , then the line in the door is frozen . Either raise the freezer temp for several days , so the line in the door will thaw , or , I have heard using an air tank will blow the ice out of the line in the door . If no water comes from the line under the refrig , while activating the pad , then replace the water valve , behind the refrig , the piece the wall water line connects to on the refrig . There is also , a dispenser heater , pt . # WR49X10173 , which comes with instructions , to keep this grom happening again .

Can't get water at the dispenser on a GE sxs


GSS25QMFC I beleive is manufactured by GE. The line could definitely be frozen. 99% of refrigerators you cannot get into the doors. They are glued together and filled with spray in insulation. There is no easy way to do it. You can try a hair dryer or just let the fridge sit for 24 hours turned off with the doors open. Another place to check for a freeze up is in the rear of the refrig section. Most refrigerators run the line in the refrigerator to chill the water and if your refrig section gets too cold they can freeze in there. Most of the time refrigerators have a disconnect in the water line at the bottom corner of the freezer door where it goes through the hinge. You might have to yank off the lower grill to see it, but you can sometimes disconnect it there and let water run out. Good Luck

Won't dispense water from freezer door - ice maker works fine.


I'd wager that the water line inside the freezer door is frozen keeping water from flowing.

Here's how to test my theory; Open up both doors and remove the "kick panel" (it's just snapped into place, so just pull on it). After that's done, look below the bottom freezer door hinge... you'll see the water tube there. Now, about 4" to the right of the hinge, you'll see a tubing coupler there. Disconnect (unscrew) it. OK, now just reach up there and depress the chilled water dispenser (like your gonna fill a glass). Did water come out of the tube near the floor? If so... the tube in the door is frozen.

The only fix for this is to completely defrost the fridge. (As in, unplug it for at least 24 hours) The reason is because there is no way to access the tube in the door... it's "foamed" in place and not serviceable.

I've heard of a trick you can employ after it de-ices to keep it from happening again. (Note, that I've never used this trick, but heard that it works, OK?) Alrighty then... when it's completely thawed and water is flowing like it should, cut yourself a piece of plastic cord (like weed-eater string but small) about 18"-24" long. Then you take this cord and feed it through the tube where the chilled water comes out of the dispenser. Feed it down the tube almost all the way leaving about an inch or so hanging out of the water dispenser.

OK... here's what is supposed to happen; If it ever freezes shut again, all you have to do is pull that string outta there. This will allow water to flow again. Then all you have to do is grab a huge cup (like a "big gulp") and fill it up. The water flowing through there will thaw out the frozen stuff and clear the line. After it runs free and clear again, just replace the cord and wait for it to freeze again.

Hope this helps! Let me know by rating this solution as "it solved my problem", will ya? Thanks!

Items in freezer melting, Ice maker empty, fridge feeling warm


hi there,

you have 2 problems:

frist check the freezer thermostat and make sure that it's set to at least 5 or 6. if that is okay and you still have this problem, you may need to have the thermostat replaced and maybe more.

as far as the icemaker, if it's just the ice part that does not work, i would recommend checking the valve and water line coming into the icemaker.

can you tell me if this is a side by side or a top or bottom mount freezer? if you have the model #, that would be great.

Water despenser does not work


OK EVERYONE...

HERE IS YOUR SOLUTION FOR WATER AND ICE DISPENSERS ON GE UNITS NOT WORKING BECAUSE OF FROZEN LINES.

GET A HAIR DRYER...

USE THE HAIRDRYER TO WARM UP THE LINE THAT STARTS AT THE BOTTOM LEFT HAND SIDE OF THE FREEZER DOOR.

WARM UP EVERYTHING ALL THE WAY UP THE SIDE UP TO THE WATER DISPENSER.

WARM UP THE TUBE WHERE THE WATER COMES OUT.
(BE CAREFUL NOT TO PUSH THE WATER DISPENSER SWITCH...COMMON SENSE)

KEEP WARMING UP THE DOOR AND TESTING THE SWITCH UNTIL YOU GET WATER...

IT TOOK ME ABOUT 20 MINUTES...IT MAY TAKE LONGER DEPENDING ON HOW BAD THE LINE IS FROZEN.

I HOPE THIS HELPS...

My Whirlpool model DE22RQ or DQ water dispensor does not work. The ice maker is working. I hear a humming sound from the back when the dispensor is pressed but no water comes out.


checked for a clog in the inlet side of the valve where the water comes in there is a small screen that maybe blocked also check on the back wall of the freezer where the fill tube goes into the units icemaker it could have frozen up due to low water pressure
