No Water Coming Out of The Water Dispensor on G E Refrigerator ?


If you are not getting water thru the door dispenser , first thing to check is if you are getting water to the water valve behind the refrigerator . This is the part in the back of the refrig , that the wall water line connects to .
If your ice maker is making normal size cubes , then you ARE getting water TO the water valve .
However , there are 2 coils on the water valve ( G E ) of which 1 is for the ice maker , and , the other , is for the water dispenser .

1 ) Remove the kick plate from the bottom front of the refrig . On some models , the kick plate " snaps " on , and other models , it is held on by a small screw on each side on the top portion of the kick plate .
Once the kick plate is removed , follow the plastic water line from the bottom of the freezer door , about 6 " , to a small coupling . This coupling , has a " ring " on both ends , one of which has to be pushed in as you pull the tubing from the coupler . Once this is accomplished , put a towel under the end of both ends of the tubing , to keep the floor dry .
2 ) Activate the water dispenser arm . If water comes out in a good stream , from the tubing which goes under the refrig , the water line inside the freezer door is frozen . You can either turn the freezer temp warmer for several days for the line to un-thaw or use compressed air ( I have heard using computer cleaner air bottles with the small tube works ) to the water line going up form the bottom of the freezer door to blow out the frozen ice .
Once the ice thaws , G E has a dispenser heater , part # WR49X10173 which comes with installation instructions , to keep this from happening again . If NO water comes out of either hose , then either the water tank inside the bottom of the refrig is frozen ( which would require several days of warmer temperature settings ) OR the refrig could have a bad coil on the water valve , which would require replacing the complete water valve .
I have only come across maybe 1 tank which was frozen , and the rest have been either the line in the door was frozen OR the water valve needed replaced .

Please note....if using compressed air in the door water line , DO NOT USE EXTREME HIGH PRESSURE , as this could burst the line in the door , causing the complete door to have to be replaced . Just the water line inside the door , is not replaceable .

How How do I fix my broken water line that goes in to the freezer door to the water dispenser?


The line going into the dispenser is a 5/16 line. You'll have to remove the front of the dispenser on the door to get access to the line to unclip it. Once you have that done you can pull the line out from the bottom. At this point there are a variety of different unions, compression fittings, etc. to splice the line. After that you just feed the line back through the bottom of the door, clip it back in place, put the dispenser back together and your done.

RE: whirlpool refrigerator side by side ED25RFXFW01. I accidentally severed the water line inside the freezer door. How do I get to it? It appears that the shelves and insulation are glued to the door,...


The water line can be replaced by removing the dispenser cover and disconnecting the tubing and then pull the old line down from the bottom hinge area. once out, you can install your new line back up into the place it came out of. it goes through a channel inside the door. once back up in dispenser area..connect back to nozzle. the hose under freezer door needs to be connected as well...

Water dispenser doesn't work on ge hotpoint freezer


Here recently I have run into 2 of these units that do this and have found that the dispenser line is frozen in the freezer door. The way to test this is to remove the kick plate under the doors (It is easiest to open both doors to do this) Disconnect the union in the water line leading to the door by pushing in on the waterline and pulling in on the end of the fitting. When the line is apart, close the doors and push in on the paddle as to fill a cup with water. If you get water out of the line under the door then your line in your door is frozen and you will either need to replace your door or let the unit thaw for 24 hours with the doors open. Cheaper to thaw. If no water comes out under the door when paddle is pressed then you will need to replace the water valve as long as you have 120 volts at the valve when actuated.

Water leaking from inside door


the water line for the water disp runs in a chase that goes up thru the bottom hinge of the refrig door. SO DONT PULL YOUR DOOR APART! you can order a new water line thru frigidaire and replace the part by removing the water dispenser housing on the door and pulling the line thru the door then inst the new line in reverse. if it looks like too big a job then get a reputable company to inst it for you.

Water dispenser...


I had the same problem, in reading a bunch of other similiar issues with various models, the best thing I found was that the water line inside the freezer door is frozen. I had to isolate this portion of my water line from the wall all the way through the frigde. It you unplug, take out screws from he back cardboard cover so you can follow the waterline through the fridge. The valves are pretty easy to take apart/put together. To take apart a valve, just press down on the ring around the valve the pull the connecting apart. To put back together, push the same ring down, then push the connection back together. To check the water flow, plug the fridge back in and have some one push the water dispenser as you check each valve. I suspect the problem is in the freezer door, so you should just check the valve under the bottom left side of the freezer door. From here to the dispenser the water line goes through the door. I used a blow dryer to heat up the inside of the freezer door just behind and below the dispenser unit for about 5 minutes. Try and run the water again and it should work. Good luck

Water and ice will not dispense


I had the same problem. I followed stills' suggestion and used a weed **** wire to push through the water spout. The weed **** did not go past more than 2-3 inches. Then I emptied the ice bin, used the hair dryer right close to the spout both from the outside and from the inside of the freezer door. After about a couple of minutes it started working! Now, just to check if the weed **** wire will go in more than a few inches I pushed it through. Now I was able to go well past 6 inches. So, before even you start addressing this problem try pushing through a weed **** line and if it is blocked then your problem is in the door. If not, then the problem may be in the reservoir at the refrigerator side.
