GE makes a heater that will prevent this from happening again. The part number for this heater is WR49X10173.

Or you can tape some insulation on the inside of the door where it freezes.

GE has been known the replace the door since this is a defect in lots of their units. You'll have to contact the company.

How can i turn off the water function on the door but not the ice, the water line keeps leaking on the back of the frig


When I had this problem the water was coming from the top right rear where the water tube feeds the ice maker. The water line INSIDE the frig that feeds the ice maker occasionally freezes up causing an obstruction which causes the water to leak out the rear. This can only happen when the icemaker activates the water feed. You can remove the tube fitting without fear because the valve that feeds water through the line is at the bottom rear of the unit. If the line is frozen inside I remove the ice bin and tray and use a hair dryer to melt the ice.
I have a similar problem with the condenser fan making a tapping/clacking noise which is also a result of ice building up on that. Wish I had a different frig but for now the hair dryer will have to do.

Hot point model hss25gfp. can get water at coupling but not out of door dispencer . ice maker works fine. When coupling is disconnected and water is depressed water flows fine from the coupling.


The water line is frozen in the door .Turn on the dispenser light for several hours , or , use a hair dryer aimed up into the dispenser , or , use compressed air in the tube going up into the bottom of the door ( computer cleaning bottle with a small tube ) , or , air compressor hose at the bottom of the door tube , or , order GE dispenser heater kit pt # WR49X10173 ( it comes with instructions ) . After you get it working , turn up ( warmer ) the freezer temp only slightly .

Water does not dispence


The water supply tube in the recessed area of the dispenser area has frozen. The only way to thaw it out without turning unit off for 24 hours and leaving the freezer door open is to use a hair dryer to heat the recessed area where the water comes out. The water line supplying water to the door has frozen in that area. It will take you about 1 1/2 hours to 2 hours to do this with door open and using hair dryer. Wish there was another way besides turning unit off for 24 hours but this is a common problem with the GE refrigerators. Soory. Wish I could have been more help. Rick

Water accumulates in freezer bottom and of course frezzes. if we don't break up and remove the ice, water will leak out the door. best guess on the model below. The back panel states "R134a"


134a is the type of freon used. There is a defrost drain hole at the very bottom of the freezer usally below the back panel. It has a tube that runs underneath behind the back bottom of freezer section. It can get stopped up with slugg that keeps the water from getting to the defrost water pan. The water in the tube freezes and the water then runs out the front of freezer being it has no exit. . hot water or a hair dryer gun. If you have means to blow hole out after ice is melted will do a better job. Blowing warm water down hole through tube with mouth will knock ice out quickly but be very careful. also this ewill remove any trash build up in drain hole.

In-door water dispenser doesn't work.


The water supply to the door is frozen up inside the door and about the quickest way is to use a hair dryer with the ref in the off position and freezer door open warm the area with the hair dryer. This will take a while, be patient but the only other alternative is to turn ref off for 24 hours with the freezer door left in the open position. Remember have patience if using the hair dryer method. Good luck and hope this helps.

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.

Water not getting to dispenser, but does get to ice maker.


Hi All,
The fix to the "GE/Hotpoint Secret" frozen water dispenser problem is the Dispenser Water Tube Heater Kit, P/N WR49X10173 that can be purchased at Sears. Just a few bucks. My Hotpoint (model HSM25GFRA5A) had the same issue and GE would not tell me anything but required a technician to come out. The technician had no clue but after making some calls found the heater at Sears and ordered it delivered to me. He had to setup a return appointment but I canceled it after getting the parts and fixing it myself. The instructions are in the kit. Since most all GE/Hotpoint refrigerators (same model group of course) use the same parts/assemblies this will work for lots of folks. See pic below. If the area behind the cover looks like this it may be the part. Feel free to email me for help on this (rkjobe@military.com). Piece of cake.
