Had the EXACT same problem with another GE side-by-side. Repairman just left and it was the main board that had to be replaced. It took him all of 5 minutes to replace and cost us $318. If you are handy, it is a repair you may be able to do on your own if you can find the correct model number and order it.

When pushing ice dispenser on GE side by side light dims and nothing happens


sounds like a large current draw is causing the light to dim most likely the cause is a build up of ice around the auger motor or the auger is seized.

Water dispenser is not working no water dispenser


If the light is dimming when you try to get ice (dimming then getting bright in cycles) then thisis a common problem and GE will fix it. The Main circuit board on the back goes bad causing the ice\water dispenser to quit working then eventually the fridge quits cooling. Call 800-386-1215 and tell them the problem. There is a recall for the board

GE Profile Artica - Water & ice dispensor not working.


This could be as simple as the door switch or as complex as the dispenser control board. I would try the door switch first. When the door is close it turns on the dispenser controls. If the contact is defective in the door/light switch then this happens. Unplug remove the door switch and mark wire locations. 1 Powers the lights and the other powers the dispenser. and one is the power itself. Sea Breeze

Makes ice fine but doesnt dispense


Sounds like the dispenser auger is frozen up or stuck. The lights dimming happens because the voltage drop from the stuck auger's motor when you try to use it. Remove the ice machine and clean it. Do not try to take it apart!
Sometimes, the ice machine will fill too much with water and get stuck. Often, it's because the cabinet isn't level.

Water and Ice dispenser quit functioning


the solution to this problem is so simple it makes me laaugh out loud. the bulb in the door that illuminates when a glass is placed under the water dispenser draws too much current when it gets old. just remove the bulb and it will work fine. you can then replace the bulb whenever you find it at a hardware store. I had the same problem, and spent hours online looking and was ready to buy a new motherboard to fix it. I have alot of faith in GE, and all of the bashing is a horse ****. GE makes turbine engines that power alot of the airplanes we fly in and i think they know a thing or two about engineering.

Ice and Water not dispensing. Light button not working


INSIDE THE DISPENSER ASSEMBLY IS A SEPARATE ELECTRONIC BOARD THAT CONTROLS THE DISPENSER.
OCCASIONALLY, THE DOOR SOLENOID OR THE CUBE ICE SOLENOID WILL SHORT OUT CAUSING A BURNOUT OF THE DISPENSER CONTROL BOARD. CHECK FOR A BURNT SMELL COMING FROM THE DISPENSER HOUSING. IF YOU SMELL IT, THE BOARD AND/OR SOLENOID NEED TO BE REPLACED.

Ice maker not working


So your not getting water from the dispenser either??? Yes the water filter can be the source of your problem. Let me know if the water is coming from the dispenser.
