PSS26MSWA SS - GE Fridge: water dispenser not working

Bought floor model, which was plugged in at store. I brought it home and started using it without connecting water line. Two weeks later, I installed water line. I am getting water at the filter but still not getting water to dispense. I then read in manual that if water line is not connected, ice maker power button must be in off position or valve may become damaged. I tried removing the filter and installing the bypass lid. Still did not work. Any suggestions?
Thanks.

This is a common problem with GE refrigerators. The water line freezes. It is a cheap and easy ($30) fix that takes about 15 minutes. I found a ton of people having this issue so I did a blog post with the symptoms and part to order. Read more about it here.

Why is my GE (ZFSB23D SS) side by side refrigerator leaking at the back corner, near the rear wheel where the plastic water line goes in?


If the tubing is plastic it could have cracked when you moved the tubing to install the filter. If the tubing is OK then possinly the filter isn't all the way in or is leaking.

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.

Yes there is a way to disconnect the water line. Pull the Fridge out from the wall. The electrical power chord should be on the back side as well as the 1/4" water line. You need to locate a valve and shut off the supply water. Then you can disconnect the line with wrenches. It is located near the bottom.

We have the same model and just had exactly the same problem. The coil behind the fresh produce trays is frozen. There are 2 coils, one provides water for the water dispenser and the other to the ice maker. Looking into the fridge the water dispenser coil is on the right hand side. We unplugged the fridge for a couple of hours and the problem has been solved. Try increasing the temperature of your fridge by a degree or two.

In my GE Performance refrigerator side-by-side Ice is being made, but no water is dispensing. The GE Smartfilter is atleast 5 yrs old (I never used/never changed) because we always bought water from...


The water that goes to the door actually is routed through the hinge on the freezer door. Take a look and see if you can't find where the tube comes out and goes into the water dispenser. I bet it has come loose and is rerouting the water down the side of the fridge and onto the floor; hence the puddle.

Also, just because you don't drink the water doesn't mean you don't drink the water! If you use ice from the ice dispenser then you ARE drinking the water. The water that feeds the ice trays comes through the filter, so you might consider changing it every 6 months rather you use the water dispenser or not.

Hope this helps, I have one too and its causing a different set of problems...
