Question about GE PSS26SGRSS Stainless Steel Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

The water and ice dispensing has stopped working. Depressing the lever no longer activates either water flow or ice. When the proble first occurred unplugging and plugging back in restored operation, but that remedy no longer works. The light above each function does glow green.

The switch you select and press is probably bad if you don't hear any type of noise or clicking when you depress it. Post your model number at one of these sites to look up parts and diagrams for your model.

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

Water dispenser dripping water all the time


Hi,



First be sure the refrigerator is connected to a cold water supply. After connecting the refrigerator to a water source or replacing the water filter, flush the water system. Use a sturdy container to depress and hold the water dispenser lever for 5 seconds, and then release it for 5 seconds. Repeat until water begins to flow. Once water begins to flow, continue depressing and releasing the dispenser lever (5 seconds on, 5 seconds off) until a total of 12 L has been dispensed. This will flush air from the filter and water dispensing system, and prepare the water filter for use. Additional flushing may be required in some households. As air is cleared from the system, water may spurt out of the dispenser.

One or two drops of water immediately after dispensing is normal. It may be necessary to hold the container under the dispenser for 2 to 3 seconds after releasing the dispenser lever.


Hope this will be useful.

Thank you

Maytag sidebyside MSD2758DRW ice maker won't make ice


Hi,

If the ice maker no longer make ice, check the following.

Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on.

On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice.

Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

Thanks

Ice and water dispenser stopped working


Welcome to the computer world. When depressed, the paddle actuates a switch attached to the bracket above. The switch sends a low voltage signal to a small circuit board mouted right behind the display. A computer chip on that small board communicates with another chip on the main control board mounted in the rear wall. Your situation could be a bad actuator switch, a broken paddle tab, possibly a bad door switch (the fresh food doors must be closed to dispense), or a bad electronic control.

I have a 12 year old Whirlpool side-by-side refridgerator (ed20db) with water and ice dispenser. I have not used the water dispenser for years, but for some reason when I hit the lever yesterday, it did...


you have a possible water valve that is not shutting off all the way on the water dispensing side, it has 2 coils, one for ice and one for water. the other possibility is the dispenser tank is frozen, from being too cold in the refr. section and thats causing water pressure to continue running even when not pushing the lever. let the unit warm up slighty on the refr side and see if you can get water to flow properly.
if not working after warming up, then you might have to replace the water inlet valve.

AMANA refridgerator water dispenser not working. Freezer door not closed properly last night.


Hello schlucks
welcome to fixya.

You said, Your AMANA refridgerator water dispenser not working. Freezer door not closed properly last night.

When the door to the freezer was left open all night,the moisture from outside caused the water line to the water dispenser to freeze!
What you need to do is to move all the articles from your freezer to a spare or second freezer
temporarily.
Then turn off the freezer compartment of the first unit where the water is not depensing .
you will need 12 to 24 hours untill the line defrosts.
If the dispenser works sooner then don't wait any longer to restart the freezer.

In some models, the fact that the freezer is turned off may affect the power in the dispenser untill the freezer is turned back on.

After you finish defrosting and turn the freezer back on. give it 24 hours to get back to running temperture.
Then reload the articles agin.
BUT DO NOT TAKE 20 TRIPS TO BRING THE PACK AGES AND LOAD IT, LEAVING THE DOOR OPEN AGAIN!
Bring the articles to the freezer and load it straight awy quickly and close the door.
This will solve your problembarring any damage to the dispenser!t
Thank You for having me advice you.
Huuum
Please remember to leave a rating!
I'm sure you are solved!



Some info!!!!!!!!!!

cold air to the bin and make it colder.
Water and Ice Dispensers
(on some models)
Depending on your model, you may have one or more of the
following options: the ability to select either crushed or cubed
ice, a special light that turns on when you use the dispenser, or a
lock option to avoid unintentional dispensing.
NOTES:
■ The dispensing system will not operate when the freezer door
is open.
■ After connecting the refrigerator to a water source, flush the
water system. Use a sturdy container to depress and hold the
water dispenser lever for 5 seconds, then release it for
5 seconds. Repeat until water begins to flow. Once water
begins to flow, continue depressing and releasing the
dispenser lever (5 seconds on, 5 seconds off) for an
additional 2 minutes. This will flush air from the filter and
water dispensing system. Additional flushing may be required
in some households. As air is cleared from the system, water
may spurt out of the dispenser.
■ Allow 24 hours for the refrigerator to cool down and chill
water.
■ Allow 24 hours to produce the first batch of ice. Discard the
first three batches of ice produced.

On advice from the tech I removed acess door. It was covered by frozen moisture.
I removed the motor it was full of water. I verified 120 volts at plug to motor from control
by depressing the door switch and ice dispenser lever at same time. The motor ohms out
but because of amount of water removed from it I am going to replace it and see what happens.
