This video demonstrates how to test a water inlet valve on a refrigerator. ... Ice maker or water dispenser not ...
I had a GE Fridge at one time and had issues like yours.
If you disconnected the connector at the door that supplies the dispenser with power, you would not measure any voltage on the dispenser side, only on the 'fridge' side. Measure the power with the connector connected, but that may not tell you a lot, unless you have the service manual.
If you push the water dispenser and you do not hear the little valve kick on behind the fridge, suspect a couple of things. A faulty inlet valve (usually located lower rear of fridge on backside). It may be disconnected. Had this happen once on a new fridge - it had been disconnected from the factory.
You may have one problem or two issues, but let's continue...
Do you push the ice dispensor and nothing happens? Or are you telling us that the dispenser works but there is no ice? The faulty valve mentioned above will prevent ice dispenser from filling to make ice.
Also, there is RESET button hidden in the freezer a well. I can't remember where it is but the little arm to make ice has to be in position to tell it to make ice, and you have to follow the procedure in yourf ridge manual to reset it. It's
Another problem I encountered, but this was just with the cold water dispenser, was that the water line would FREEZE in the fridge door, preventing water from getting to the dispenser and my cup. It wold make ice but no water. In that case I had to get a small squirt bottle with a long nose on it and shoot hot water up into the dispenser nozzle to clear the ice in the line. That only happened a couple tines a year, though.
Here's a video that may help: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fPeZ29XdX5U
I'm not really sure of this one but here's a couple ideas. If the refrigerator ice and water dispenser is not working the dispenser control board might be defective. The control board governs most of the functions of the dispenser system. If only one item of the dispenser system is not working, troubleshoot further to see if the problem is with one of the components in the system. The board is more likely to be the cause of the problem when the entire dispensing system fails. It may also be the door switch If the refrigerator ice and water dispenser is not working. When the freezer door is opened the freezer door switch does two things, it turns on the light in the freezer and turns off the ice maker dispenser. If the door switch fails the dispenser will not turn on. The switch can be checked for continuity with an Ohm meter. If it doesn't have continuity it should be replaced.Before either of these try shutting it off (or place it in demo mode) and return is to active state.It may just need a reset
check the door in the dispenser if moisture is condensing and freezing so that the door won't open try manually popping the door open just before you attempt to dispense ice, maybe you'll get lucky, otherwise your going to have to get a technician to come and check the micro-switch for the dispenser
There can be many reasons for no water supply. Line feeding the refrigerator is clogged or blocked. The water control valve that turns water to ice maker and dispenser is defective or the water filter located inside your refrigerator is in need of change. I will be here to help you go through the steps. Let me know when you are ready, Thanks, Sea Breeze
I lowered the temp on the freezer to 4 overnight, by morning water dispenser is working fine. I think that when we changed the temp to 7 (in order to make more ice ) it froze the water pipe going to the dispenser. I am going to keep both fridge and freezer at 5 ,and hope this will not happen again.
Water dispenser is a simple touch switch in door energizing a solenoid water valve behind ventilation grate above refrigerator. Water tube runs down into and ends at ice dispenser chute. Should hear solenoid click at top of fridge when activate water touch switch. Can unhook discharge side of solenoid valve temporarily to prove water output. If water dispenser tube acts blocked it could be frozen where it ends-look up the hole at the bottom of refrigerator control buttons.
Ice maker is totally different system. No clicking when push ice button but ice in bulk tray may mean the simplest of malfunctions: Ice bin not pushed in the last half inch if ice auger not lined up with drive pegs. There are hidden switches behind ice bin that need to be engaged or nothing will happen in the ice maker: no auger noise, no clicking, no new ice making. Ice bin will be flush with sheet metal if it is in the right spot. Also plastic juice rack won't hang properly if ice bin not pushed in all the way.
