First try to unplug it for an hour and then plug it back in. Also, make sure that the outlet it is plugged into is working. Finally, clean the back of the unit. There should be an exposed radiator pipe coil and a fan below. If it is dirty or full of pet hair, it will shut down the compressor.

Most electronic equipment fails to work in an instant. Its better to make sure they are tested once in a while through test equipments. It definitely sounds like your motherboard is bad.

I have a kenmore side by side icemake & filtered water and their is no water coming out now.


Your water line could be frozen in the door. You can disconnect the line under the unit before it goes into the door at the bottom hinge. Push the dispenser button and see if it comes out there. If it does leave the door open till it thaws. Covering the opening with a blanket will prevent the loss of cold in the freezer. . GE makes a heater that will prevent this from happening again. The part number for this heater is WR49X10173.

disconnect the line to the water dispenser at the water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in and try the dispenser. if you hear the valve work but water doesn't come out, the valve is bad. If you don't hear the valve, the dispenser switch is bad

I have GE Modle GSH25JSXB SS side by side refrigerator and i am not getting any water in the water dispenser. Please help.


I have to assume from your description that your icemaker still works, you checked that you still have water running to the appliance, and that the board switches between functions.

The common causes for this issue are either the water cooling coil freezing up. This is located in the fresh water side of the refridgerator. Make sure it is free of obsrtuction and check the temp setting for the fridge.

The micro switch that tells the solenoid valve in the rear of the fridge to open and let water through. If you push in on the dispenser arm you should hear two clicks. The first is the switch, the second is the solenoid opening. If you do not hear the second click the microswitch is bad. Again this is assuming that you still have icemaker functionality.

Last, the line inside the freezer door is frozen. If you remove the grill under the front of the fridge and disconnect the water line coupling you can then press in on the dispenser arm and water should come out of the tube. If it does then the obstruction is in the tube traveling inside the door. It is most likely ice.

Hope that helps.

The water dispenser stopped working. It makes a sound but nothing comes out. The ice dispenser works fine.


You have two points where you can check the dispenser water. At the rear where the water supply comes in is the water inlet valve. If you disconnect the dispenser water line and then see if the water comes out when you try the dispenser. You should hear the valve work when you try the dispenser. If you don't hear it there is a dispenser actuator switch problem. If you do hear it but water doesn't work here there is a valve or water supply problem. If it's normal, disconnect it at the bottom of the freezer door and try again.If it's normal here it may be frozen in the door. If this is the case open the door till it thaws. A blanket over the opening will prevent thawing of all the food.

My refrigerator water dispenser is not working. I


In the back of the refrigerator there is a water inlet valve. It will have three hoses one coming in, two going out. A 1/4 line for the icemaker and a 5/16" for the water dispenser. If your icemaker is working and you dont have water at the door the valve to the water dispenser is faulty, you need to replace the water inlet valve. If neither icemaker or water dispenser is working chek your water supply line

Water dispenser for Amana Side By Side regridgerator not working. Water is flowing into the unit b/c ice dispenser is working. What are main potential issues to look at on the water dispenser?


when pressing in on the water dispenser you should hear a clicking sound from a micro switch being activated. if you hear the micro switch clicking ok then you'll have to disconnect the water at various points and retry to see which locations the where water is coming out and where it is not. Trial and error approach to narrow down the problem location. usually either a bad water valve or a freeze up in the water line somewhere. assuming water is working to icemaker.

Ice maker not working


The icemakers won't make ice if the temperature is not below a certain set point. Varies between manufacturers. Try making the temp colder.
