GE GSH25JFRF BB ice maker doesn't dispense. Water dispenses and ice maker makes ice but won't come out.


There should be a plastice hinge cover on the left top hinge on freezer door. Take it off and press the plug together firmly. Try that and let me know, Sea Breeze

Gsh25sgpass ice maker not working, water leaking


The WR57X10051 Dual Water Control Valve located on the rear and near floor is the problem. Part location 800 in photo here=> GSH25SGPASS Component Parts Change out the WR57X10051 Dual Water Control Valve and this problem will be solved. When this valve wears they will begin to leak slowly causing a mess inside freezer and ice maker. If you have questions I will be here to answer them, Thanks Sea Breeze

It's a Kenmore Model 106-56712500 , can't shut off alarm after changing filter, and now won't make ice or dispense water! How do I do a proper re-set code?


The 106.xxxxoooo Models are made by Whirlpool.
  • Whirlpool and KitchenAid - press the light switch 5 times within 10 seconds.
  • NOTE: If the fridge has a filter button, press and hold it for 5-10 seconds.

  • Changing the water filter should not cause the water and ice in door to not work. The actual freezer door switch will cause this problem. When the door is open ice and water in door are disabled. The door switch is a 3 contact switch. One contact is common, one turns the light on / off and one disables / enables ice and water in door. Manually depressing the door switch in the door fold hinge area should enable the water in door function. Do NOT test the ice function. If after you depress the light / door switch the light does not go out and the water in door does not work then the door switch has failed. The door switch is released from the cabinet by sliding either a putty knife or a knife blade along one side to unlock the locking tab. If the switch only has 2 terminals you have removed the wrong door switch. Check the other door.

    If your refrigerator has the wiring harness on the bottom of the door hinge there is the possibility that during the water filter change the connection of the door wiring connectors was loosened or broken. Just check to make sure that there is not a harness on the bottom of the door hinge. If there is a harness on the bottom of the door hinge make sure the connectors are connected.

    If you need more assistance just respond here and I will gladly help you.

    Thanks for choosing FixYa,

    Refrigerator stopped making ice


    Did you get an error message? We have turned our ice maker off, left it off for about a week, then turned it back on. Some part inside freezes and, so far, this method has worked.

    Light is on but frig stopped cooling


    I had a problem with my Viking where the light stayed on in side and was causing havoc with the coling system.
    I saved 200.00 doing this.
    get a cell phone or a small video camer place it inside the fridge and record to see if the light stays on when the door is closed.
    If it does. You may just have a light switch to replace or like I did readjust the push spring that the door hinge hits to active the switch.
    Once I did this the light went out and the fridge started cooling normally. the lights will heat up inside the fridge and screw up the thermostat. then the fridge will start to cycle. not good for the compressor.
    hope this helped.
    good luck
