GE side by side fridge

Hi guys,
Got a question for ya. My wife decided to buy a new fridge the other day, its a GE side by side model GSR23UGTWW. I've since been reading lots of horror stories online about GE fridges, how do you guys feel about this particular model, and should GE be avoided in general?
It hasn't been delivered yet, so wondering if i should just try to exchange it for another model, or at least get the extended warranty on it.
thanks for any help you can offer.

Ge refrigerator noise

Hi. I cant solve your problem but I will tell you what I did. If its the same problem I I had ( there was like a light rattle that seemed to come from the back of the freezer side. It wasnt constant but sort of like a little rattle here and a little rattle there every few seconds. Not very loud but very anoying. It sort of sounded like a cardboard tag floping in the wind and hitting something.) I thought it was the fan but that was not the problem. I had to call GE a few times. When the service guy came the fridge was silent and the guy said nothing was wrong. An hour after he left it started again but this time I made a video recording and placed the microphone at the rear of the fridge. GE admited something was wrong. The service guy said he could not fix it so they gave me a new fridge. This one is ok but the water wont dispence.

Water stopped running in the dispenser

I had a simular problem! I tried multiple things to make it work!

- bought new filter
- open back of the fridge... (dual outlet water valve)

Finally, I went to a different forum and found a unique idea.

First at the very bottom of the fridge theres a cover remove the cover and you should see the water hose running to the door from the back. In the middle of the hose there a coupler where the hose was spliced by the manufactuer. Now this valve once you separate it will not work correctly, unless you buy a new coupler (4$)... I'm el cheapo, I bought teflon tape for 50 cents (from previous project)... Wrapped around about half dozen times and made sure it wasnt leaking...

Secondly, when you disconnect the coupler no water should shoot out, until you press the water dispenser arm. If water shoots out of the hose on the bottom then you problem is really, really, really easy. You have simplely ice/ or another item blocking water hose to the actual dispenser.

I turned off the frezzer left the door open for an hour or so. I also used my wife's blow dryer on hot, and put it where the ice comes out of the ice maker. I would press the arm peridocially to see if the ice blockage melted yet. REMEMBER: door must be closed for pressure to push on the ice blockage. Thinking back, I might have been finished sooner... I was thinking the water dispenser would work with the door open.

If this doesnt work, then you have other problems... Bad water dispenser selonoid (you can hear this little motor turning even without water), dual water outlet valve maybe broken... Going outside my knowldege level at this point.... But i guess you computer board maybe going bad. Not sure if this computer has anything to do with water dispensing....

Hope this helps! My wife left me alone for about a day or two while she enjoyed the water dispenser...And she broke the vaccum.

Ge side by side

Peace Friend,
ngafm At your service!

you have a short in the board an have to decide is it worth doing this investment for this fridge.
How old is the appliance?
Well, this is a top of the line fridge, so you would probably make the investment to repair it!

How old is the washer?

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!

You will be fine
Bless You ngafm
