The water soliniod maybe clogged with calcium. if you get it loose you can take the plastic hose loos from the icemaker side of the water valve see if it is dripping or running out of there. if alot is coming out maybe getting voltage too long from the icemaker. it will be one or the other.

Water not working but still makes ice


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 , turn on the dispensor light for several hours , 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 . GE has a dispensor heater pt. # WR49X10173 to keep this from happening again ( comes with instructions ) .

Water dispensing but also leaking from the back


Pull the fridge out and remove the back panel . Have someone press the water dispensor and watch for the leak . Usually , the plastic line at the water valve breaks off , and removing the broken piece and reinserting the line , fixes it . You may have to remove the 1 screw holding the water valve on , to gain access to remove the broken piece of line . The water valve itself , could also have a hole in it , spraying , due to long period of water pressure . Just replace the water valve , if this is the problem .

Doors got to hot


Check the warrenty on fridge . Usually you have a 5 year warrenty on the compressor AND sealed system ( parts and labor ) . However , a service call charge may apply . Also check to see if something got sucked into the compressor cooling fan blade causing the noise , after you cleaned the coils .

From the description about dispensor leaking and ice getting stuck , sounds like the water valve needs to be replaced . Small ice cubes ( from not enough water ) will get caught between the rake and fingers . A leaking water dispensor , usually indicates that the water solenoid is not closing completely when letting off the water dispensor arm . Both solenoids come togather as the water valve ( located where the wall waterline connects to refrig ) .

Water dispensor does not dispense water. Ice maker works.


you have prime the system air out of the water lines this is easy to do
put a glass big enough to cover water dispensor outlet cause its going to project water out at you press and hold button till water starts to run smooth
these fridges will spit water at you when you prime the system at first cause theres air blockage in lines

Emptying resivoir?


If you shut off the right valve, water to the frige will be cut off. The dispensor may have a small spurt left from the pressure in the lines but it should quickly stop. No water will leak out the back valves since they are shut. Some water from the defrost cycles may be in the lower catch pan by the compressor but that's about it. If you have water off and can still get a full glass out the dispensor... then you don't have the correct valve turned off. Usually, there is a cut off valve in the wall just behind the refer to turn off the water. If you disconnect the hose once water valve is off only the water in the line will drain.
