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 .

Water dispenser on fridge not working - water pressure fine, could the line be frozen and why would that start happening all of a sudden?


Check to see if the water reservoir in the bottom of the frig is frozen. If it is, you will need to turn the frig temp down.

GE Refrigerator Water dispenser trickles


Side like a water supply issue or a kinked line. Good pressure at first then weak pressure after a short time is a restriction in the water flow.

My whirlpool side by side fridge is not making ice...no water reaching ice maker. I replaced the water inlet valve assembly, still no water in ice maker


Hello,

their are 4 possibilities that will cause that

1) if equipped the filter is clogged

2) the tube in the freezer that the water enters into the i/m is frozen, to check that disconnect the line from the water valve (the smaller diameter one if also has in door water dispenser) and blow in it their should be not obstructon and you should be able to blow through it easily

3) the water pressure into the water valve is restricted, their should be a steady good stream of pressure, if it only drips or the pressure is weak that is the problem

4) the i/m is turned off,the metal bar that raises and lowers to stop the i/m when ice bucket is full should be in the down position

Hope this helps, Gene

Water leaks from dispenser


Bad water filter or weak water inlet solenoid. Water line to back of fridge goes to inlet solenoid valve. Check it first. Would help to know the manufacture date. If it has a filter at bottom of fridge it will cause leaks and low pressure to dispenser if not changed each year.

Water comes out of dispenser without touching the lever


Your inlet valve must be getting weak and not sealing correctly. the inlet valve is where the water line ties in rear. replace it for the fix.

Water keeps dripping after it dispenses water thru the door


When you push the button, the CLICK you hear when the water flows is the Water delivery solenoid opening to let water thru, then snapping shut when U R done. The Spring is weak (prob wrong type, size, strength at factory) or the valve seal is cracked, torn, hardened or crushed.

Since all this is inside the door, you will either have to take it apart to see/fix/replace.

Quick fix: turn down the water pressure coming in(?)

Call Mr. Handyman to fix.

If under warranty - they might fix this for you for free
If this is a factory defect, there might be a recall in place for repair/replacement parts

Googlee both - Make/Model + Dripping Valve + Recall
Good Luck!
