I have a GSH25JSTE refrigerator. the water has suddenly stopped worki, but the ice maker works fine. will the water stop if the filter needs to be replaced?

Todd, Harrie, I have exactly the same problem. Water suddenly stopped. Dispenses ice ok. The blue water solenoid inside the bottom back of the fridge is working. I've read that the water line can freeze! I plan to replace the water filter asap, due to age. Will let you know if that resolves this...

My acre aspire 57332-4633 laptop all of a sudden will not connect wirelessly to my network it used to

Quick suggestion, Re-boot system, preferably hard restart (Shut Down then turn it back on), if that doesn't work, Look into Firewall program setting change, they can sometimes if not often, the solution depends on how you use your Laptop, Hibernate, Sleep, Standby etc etc. Some drivers are temperamental
Knowing what happened just before it suddenly stopped working, OS info etc would be much more useful in fault finding/troubleshooting.
I assume all is well in device manager, i.e. driver Ok, any messages from System?
Anyway, good luck.

Amana ARB2257CW...bottom freezer stopped working and ice cream found in liquid form...refrigerator seemed OK... this evening I unplugged unit for 25 minutes and plugged it back fan...

Sounds like a defective thermostat or it could be a defective defrost heater. If freon has not leaked from the frig its gonna be one of the two. BB

Model # - ET18HK - Refrigerator not cooling

Sounds like you have a leak in the refrigeration circuit somewhere. The refrigerant has leaked out of the system. It often will leak very slowly and you will not hear see of notice anything till the unit stops working.
To find the leak and repair the unit will probably cost more than buying a new one. These leaks are often very hard to find and many are not repairable anyway.

It sounds like your compressor has failed. The hum is the compressor trying to start and the click following is the over current protector opening.
