Hi
This issue is due to frozen water line, try turning off the refrigerator for 30-40 minutes with doors opened. This will resolve your issue, if issue doesn't get resolved then check the water tank behind the vegetable bins to if it is frozen or cracked. This is hard to do visually, usually a frozen tank will be split and will leak on the fresh food floor. Low food load in the fresh food section can cause the tank to freeze. The meat pan lever may also be turned to the coldest position and on units that have a low water usage, this will also cause the tank to freeze. You will want to lower the meat drawer setting or use more water from the door. This does not apply to Top Mount water dispenser models, because they do not have a reservoir. Also check the video at this link, it would help--- Video Link Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

    Hi





    Please check the water tank if you haven't checked it. If water tank seems fine then check the water filter, if the water filter is more than a year old it will cause restriction to the water flow. If water filter is fine then make sure that the water inlet valve on the back of the fridge has wires connected to it.If wires are fine then remove the wires from the solenoid and check for 120V coming to the solenoid while the water dispenser lever is depressed. If there is 120V then the water inlet valve has to be replaced. You would need a multimeter to check this. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Could be several problems (I'm a homeowner, not an expert). GE had a problem with the water line in the freezer door: not enuf insulation so the line freezes, hence no water flow. I would look at this first, especially if you press the water dispenser handle and you hear the pump, but no water comes out. Ditto if the ice bin is empty or the ice maker isn't making any more ice. If the icemaker is making ice but not dispensing it, then the auger (thing that agitates the ice cubes in the bin) may be broken or frozen. (if frozen be sure ice cubes in bin are loose and not frozen into one big ice cube).

Hello. Hollow cubes is caused when there is not enough water going into the ice cube molds. That said, since you have too much water going into the water dispenser I would suspect that the valve needs to be cleaned or possibly replaced. Joe

GE refrig/freezer dispenser makes ice, but no dispensing of water


The dispensor water line , is probably trying to freeze , inside the door . raise the freezer control slightly warmer , to keep this from happening . May take 2 or 3 raisings to find the proper temp . Also , you can order a dispensor heat kit , pt # WR49X10173 , which comes with installation instructions .

Ice maker only dispenses crushed ice, won't dispense cubed ice anymore.


I have a GE TFX25ppbaaa refrigerator. The ice maker corkscrew motor would run and provide crushed ice only. The corkscrew motor would not run when the switch was moved to the cubed ice ( half moon) setting.

I replaced the large Light/ water/ crushed ice/cubed ice switch , ( product service number GEH WR55X129 ) ( part number GE 162D6372 PO17 )and it fixed the problem. Cost was about $43.00.
