OK EVERYONE...

HERE IS YOUR SOLUTION FOR WATER AND ICE DISPENSERS ON GE UNITS NOT WORKING BECAUSE OF FROZEN LINES.

GET A HAIR DRYER...

USE THE HAIRDRYER TO WARM UP THE LINE THAT STARTS AT THE BOTTOM LEFT HAND SIDE OF THE FREEZER DOOR.

WARM UP EVERYTHING ALL THE WAY UP THE SIDE UP TO THE WATER DISPENSER.

WARM UP THE TUBE WHERE THE WATER COMES OUT.
(BE CAREFUL NOT TO PUSH THE WATER DISPENSER SWITCH...COMMON SENSE)

KEEP WARMING UP THE DOOR AND TESTING THE SWITCH UNTIL YOU GET WATER...

IT TOOK ME ABOUT 20 MINUTES...IT MAY TAKE LONGER DEPENDING ON HOW BAD THE LINE IS FROZEN.

I HOPE THIS HELPS...

  • first check the water line behind the pans in the refrigerator. the water may be frozen in these lines. water is held in the back of the refrigerator to chill it before it goes to the dispenser.

  • or the water valve behind the machine may be bad
  • the dispenser switch in the door may be bad
  • let me know if you need more help

Water dispenser does not work. However, the ice maker does work so there is water availabe. Could this be a pump problem, if yes how do I replace.


It is not your pump, because despenser and ice maker both get water from the same pump.
Water despenser is activated by a small plunger when you press your water glass against it
to release the water. This is your problem, bad plunger.

No water flow to ice maker or water despenser...water lines are clear the filter is clear..could problem be water inlet valve ( dual valve controls water flow to ice maker and water despenser.


Its odd that both parts of the valve went bad at the same time. Personally sounds as if your water filter is clogged up and needs to be changed. I would do that first, before trying to change the water valve itself.

Water just keeps pouring out of the top of the ice despenser


I would say your water valve in the freezer is locked in the open postion or has broken.

My fridge is a side by side whirlpool, and it has a water despenser. The water despenser and ice maker isn't flowing, there is no water, no ice. Im not sure the model #.


check your water supply is ok and replace your water filter if it has one this should solve you problem if not then its poss you have bad water solenoids but not likely. peyton
