check your water filter. water preasure is important in the operation of the water valves. if the filter is ok replace the valve. water filter should be changed at least once every year.

Sounds like a bad water solinoid valve.

make sure filter is installed correctly (not to doubt you but it can happen) make sure there isn't some foriegn object or packing materialetc in the filter end. You could have a bad filter. also make sure the unit is purged well

SOURCE: GE Fridge - The water filter bypass plug is stuck

Should just take a quarter turn CCW to remove. You may loose a few drips of water, but the water shuts off automatically when the plug or a filter is removed. A wrench should not be needed to do this.

LEAKING FRIDGE


A magnitude of problems could be caused by this, you should really call someone to come out and look at the refrigerator. With that model having a ice maker and water dispenser, it could be a crack in the water filtration which is typically located in the lower read of the refrigerator. If nothing else seems to be wet on the inside of the refrigerator you can almost guarantee that its the filter and pump in the back leaking which will require a skilled professional to look at it.

Water dispenser and ice maker are not working, water supply to refrigerator is ok.


Check / replace the filter. Many fridges have a filter readily accessible from the fresh food compartment. The filter should be changed at regular intervals for best performance. A filter that is never changed will reduce and eventually stop water flow through it.

Check the temperature of the fresh food compartment near the filter. It may be "flirting" with the 32 degree mark. If it is this low, water has turned to ice - and will stop water from flowing. Bump the temperature up a tad to see if it solves the problem.

Lastly, the water supply solenoid may have failed. You didn't provide the model fridge - so I can't give specific info about it - but many fridges have one or two solenoids at the rear of the fridge for water supply and ice makers. You should hear a clicking sound from the rear of the fridge on many models when dispensing water or when the ice maker cycles on. If one has failed, you may expect to pay about $15 to $50 for a replacement - depending model.

Typical GE Refrigerator Single Solenoid Water Inlet Valve "WR57X10033"

Solenoid valve replacement is pretty straight forward. Usually all the is needed are some simple hand tools and a rag to pick up spilled water. Make sure the water supply is shut off and unplug the fridge before attempting.

If my answer was helpful - please rate it. Thanks & good luck!

I have a GE MWF water filter that is dripping water into the refrigerator. Fridge is about 8 yrs old and have changed many of the MWF water filters. 1st time with this problem.


Many times fines from these filters become dislodged and plug up the filter housing. If you have the bypass plug for the filter, install it and run a couple gallons of water through fridge to flush the system completely. The install the filter again. Make sure none of the water lines feeding fridge are pinched or kinked and valve is on all the way.

Where is the water filter on GSS20GEWJ? This is a GE side by side.


This model number is not coming up. The 'J' on the end, is that a typo? There is no model with the 'J' on the end that I can find.

If your model is GE GSS20GEW, then the spec sheet indicates there is no water filtration system on this refrigerator. Although the manufacturer's generic blurb on it says "...fresh, filtered water...".

Here is the link to the specifications:

http://www.rainbowappliance.com/GSS20GEWBB.html#

If you're sure it has a filtration system and there is not an obvious canister shaped filter inside the cabinet then they are usually located underneath the unit on the front. There will be a round looking thing protruding from the bottom-front grill or the grill will have to be snapped out to get to the filter. I would look here for it.

If this information was useful, please select YES to the first to rating questios. Good Luck and thank you!

We purchased foreclosure house that has a GE fridge tpx21prx-possibly 13 years old-no info but does it need filter for ice and water use? There is no filter inside fridge-does copper line need replacing...


This model does not have a filter for the ice and water, you can add an inline filter in back of fridge water line, they sell them at any hardware store, you dont need to change copper line unless it is corroded.

WATER FILTER


All of the cabinets I have worked on have had external water filters, so unless yours is really special you will normally find the water filter located behind the fridge freezer in the incoming water supply line (typically 4 - 6 inches long 2 inches diameter). Some cabinets now have a timer to indicate a long duration, none that i have come across monitor water quality. Hope this helps.

Water leaking at filter


If this is a Pure source 2 filter in the upper right hand side of fridge, Purchase an Electrolux filter bypass, P/N 241944302. This is a empty cartridge that lets water flow without water drip when filter is clogged. Fridgidaire/Electrolux made no bypass in these filters, so when clogged they leak. Plus they NEVER last more than about 30/60 days. If you use the bypass, you will need a separate filter elsewhere such as in water line under sink or behind fridge. Call me at 816-560-8545 if you need more info.
