You have a duct door problem. The most common is the seal on the door goes bad or the pivot on the dispener can break off. Both allow warm air inside thus your moisture. I hope this helps.

The ice and water dispenser of the door is locked on after hummin


Mark check for a door switch on the cabinet side oft the freezer door. It usually is near the hinge fold area of the door. Depressing the plunger should make the freezer compartment light go on and off. The switch also controls the icemaker auger power by shutting it off when the door is open. If the door switch has failed you will not get ice or water from the door dispenser. There are 2 plastic lock tabs of the side of the door switch to remove it. Use a knife blade or putty knife to unlock the tabs on the switch. If you need more help as to location of the switch respond here and I will pass a link for the diagram.

GE gss22sgrf sidebyside water dispenser does not work, ice does


these unit have a problem with the water line freezing inside the freezer door. ge makes a tape style heater that goes inside the dispenser area to give just enough heat to keep it from freezing the water line.
you can try to change the freezer settings, warmer, clean the coils at the back of the unit and leave the freezer door open for 20-30 minute to allow the door to warm up and that will be a temporary fix to allow water to flow until you can get the heater kit.

No water going in the ice maker but water dispener


Pour about 2/3 cup of water into icemaker . If it freezes and does not dump , replace the icemaker . Check to make sure the coils are clean of dust , lint , pet hair , etc . If it does dump , and does not refill with water , replace the water inlet valve ( piece behind refrig where the wall water line connects to on the fridge ) . Check to make sure the fill tube that fills the icemaker is not blocked with ice , still indicating a bad water inlet valve ( slow seep ) .

Water is not going into icemaker, I've replaced


I have a maytag side by side with water in the door, the cold water works but the icemaker doesn't. No water flow into the icemaker, it doesn't appear to be iced up. Can not tell if the selenoid works.

Ice is made but dispenser does not spin so ice wont drop


Hi, Remove the ice bin. With the freezer door open, push the door button and then push the ice dispener button to see if the auger motor is turning. If it does turn, check and see if there is something in the ice bn blocking the auger.
Please try this and let me knwo.

Thanks
Vic

Terrible taste that came from water?...


Do you have a water softener? It's possible the softener was in soak when you used the water dispenser. That would explain the "salty" (hi sodium) water taste and thena retrun to normal later.

Also, if you get your water from a muncipal well, they may have been experiencing a problem at the time with higher than normal sodium content.
