First check the water line.If the unit is not getting water then it will not make ice and not dispense water.If this is the case then water valve solenoid has to be replaced.there are two water valves and both has to be replaced.The primary and secondary water valves. But if the water is passing and ice maker is making proper ice and there is only the dispensing problem and valve checked OK then its possible that the auger which pushes the ice and water to dispense is cracked or its got loose and not working.This auger is controlled by motor.If the auger is not working then auger unit with motor needs to be replaced to solve the problem. If all checks ok then ice maker control board is faulty and ice maker unit needs to be replaced in the refrigerator. Many a times removing and reconnecting the ice maker connections solves the problem,if its the case of loose valve connection or loose auger motor connection.

    Pressing the control button is the only way to turn the dispenser on/off.But if that is not helping then the control panel needs to be removed and checked.If its faulty then control panel board needs to be replaced.
    Thanks for keeping updated with your query.

Ice maker not dispensing


This is possibly only a defective micro-switch on the Dispenser Module. Can you post the model number so I can examine the correct parts?

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

GE Refrigerator Ice and Water dispenser stopped working after power outage


More than likely the user interface board that controls that portion of the machine is probably bad, or, worse case scenario the main control board which has the overall say so for the machine has gone out which isn't uncommon either. My best advice is if your going to do it yourself buy your parts from www.repairclinic.com because of their return policy which you can return any part you bought even if installed/

Ice dispenser stuck on


Either the paddle for the ice/water dispenser is stuck or you have a bad microswitch behind the dispenser.
To stop the ice/water from dispensing open the freezer door and press or hold the child lock button down. Once the unit is in child lock mode you can shut the door without energizing the dispenser.
Another option is to remove the upper freezer door hinge cover and disconnect the wire connector up there. This will remove voltage from the dispenser as well. Then either replace the paddle or switch. Sometimes the paddles/switches will get stuck because of splash up from ice dropping in sugary drinks.

GE Side By Side Ice Machine & Water dispenser not getting water


you may have a pin hole in your water line to your dispenser or you could be leaking at the water valve itself on the water dispenser side. you'll have to pull the refrigerator out from the wall and look where the main water line goes into the back of the refrigerator. you will probably have to take the back off to see. be sure you put the back of the refrigerator back when you are through.

NO ICE


Check this first,
Your dispenser can be turned off for easy cleaning or to prevent
unintentional dispensing by small children and pets.
NOTE: The lock feature does not shut off power to the product, to
the ice maker, or to the dispenser light. It simply deactivates the
ice and water dispensers. To turn off the ice maker, see “Ice
Maker & Storage Bin.”
 Press and hold LOCKOUT for 3 seconds to lock the
dispenser.
 Press and hold LOCKOUT a second time to unlock the dispenser.
Let me know if this helped, Sea Breeze

Ice maker not getting water after changing filter


Check the following:
 Is the freezer door closed completely?
 Is the ice storage bin installed correctly?
 Is there ice in the storage bin?
 Has the ice frozen in the storage bin?
 Is ice stuck in the delivery chute?
 Has the wrong ice been added to the storage bin? Use only
cubes produced by the current ice maker.
 Has the ice melted around the auger (metal spiral) in the
ice bucket?
Dump the ice cubes and clean the ice storage
bin.
 Is the ice dispenser stalling while dispensing “crushed”
ice?
Change the ice button from “crushed” to “cubed.” If
cubed ice dispenses correctly, depress the button for
“crushed” ice and begin dispensing again.
 Has the dispenser arm been held in too long? Ice will stop
dispensing when the arm is held in too long. Wait 3 minutes
for dispenser motor to reset before using again.

The ON/OFF switch is located on the top right side of the freezer
compartment.
To turn the ice maker on, slide the control to the ON (left) position.
To manually turn the ice maker off, slide the control to the OFF
(right) position.
NOTE: Your ice maker has an automatic shutoff. The ice maker
sensors will automatically stop ice production, but the control will
remain in the ON (left) position

REMEMBER:
 Allow 24 hours to produce the first batch of ice. Discard the
first three batches of ice produced.
 The quality of your ice will be only as good as the quality of the
water supplied to your ice maker. Avoid connecting the ice
maker to a softened water supply. Water softener chemicals
(such as salt) can damage parts of the ice maker and lead to
poor quality ice. If a softened water supply cannot be avoided,
make sure the water softener is operating properly and is well
maintained

The Dispenser Lock (on some models)
Your dispenser can be turned off for easy cleaning or to prevent
unintentional dispensing by small children and pets.
NOTE: The lock feature does not shut off power to the product, to
the ice maker, or to the dispenser light. It simply deactivates the
dispenser levers. The ice and water dispensers will not work.
Style 1: Press the LOCK BUTTON to lock the dispenser. Press the
UNLOCK button to unlock the dispenser.
Style 2: Press and hold the LOCK OUT button to lock the
dispenser. Press and hold the LOCK OUT button a second time to
unlock the dispenser.
