    Ours just started doing the same thing; it continually is 'cooling'. The blue light stays on and the machine continues to run.

    I have the same problem, can it be the thermostat?. Dennis

    Yes, I have the exact same problem. When I called AND e-mailed the customer service department, I received the same (almost unintelligible) reply from the same lady:

    Madam:



    I just spoke to you and had explained how the unit works. This model is Factory Pre-set an is normal to run 24/7 from time to time is built with a dual chip system that is cycling every so often. I also mention to you that this unit is an energy start. This is your reference number just in case you want to call back. #7195

    This Problem just started with my water dispenser. Model 87330. It is 9 month old. I dont have any solution but I did take mine apart to see if there was an adjustment on the board for the thermister that goes into the cold water tank. I didn't find any adjustment. So, the thermister may be bad or maybe the relay for the thermo-electric elements... in this case we need to replace the board. If anybody has solutions, let me know.

    I have the exact same problem.The dispenser dosn't shut off when cooling. I feel it is the thermostat or circuit board. I was going to email my model# 87330 and type WD06 to the customer support, but now I'm wondering if it will get me anywhere. I paid about $70 for the unit so if the parts are to expensive I'd be better off buying a new one. Not a HAMILTON BEACH!

Glen,
We purchaced this water dispencer about 2 years ago, everything was working normal, water heater works fine and the cooler would come on and go off normally,until you dispenced cold water and then the coller would cool down and shut of like it's supposed to.
Afetr a couple of years , one day it started cooling continuously and wouldn't stop, I've just shut the cooler switch off on the back of the unit until i can figure the problem out,unit #(87330).
I believe the problem is in the circuit control board, but with out further testing i can't be sure .

The model 87330 uses two solid state cooler modules (look like little radiators} and two fans, one for each cooler module When you have the unit on cool, make sure that both fans are running, if only one fan is runing the unit never gets cold enough to shut off. If one of the modules is bad its the same story. I took mine apart today, if it was just the little muffin fan I might consider the repair but if anything else is bad, I will junk it out. I disconnected the bad fan and the associated cooling module wires off the control board and am running half cool + hot water, I am not saying to do this, this is what I have done.

    I am working on mine as I write. I have had this problem for two or more years. I cleaned the radiators and both fans are working. Now put some water back in to see if it will shut off. Any other possible solutions if this dont work?

I have the same problem with my table top dispenser of theirs, they said it had a one year warranty and since it was past one year I was outta luck. Obviously it's known for this. Mine went out like 2 years ago, I turned off the cold and have just been using the hot.

Water will not dispence in ge refrigerator model number gsl25jfpa bs


Your line is frozen. Frozen water dispenser line is a problem with this model. There are number of solutions.

1. Contact GE 800 386-1215, option 5 and ask for WR49X10173 heater kit. There is a video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BdNX3LteJTw to help you install it. Try to get GE to send you the fix free.
2. Get a hair dryer and heat the dispensing box until the water dispenser works. This is not a permanent solution, though, and it takes 15 to 30 minutes. Hang a long beach towel or blanket over the open freezer to save the cold air.
3. Place a long, clean fishing line or weed wacker line up the water dispenser line. When it freezes, pull carefully to dislodge the frozen water.
4. Buy another brand of refrigerator and let GE know they make inferior products.

My whirlpool suddenly stopped dispensing water.


most fridges stop dispensing water when you open the door. Find the door switch and make sure fridge interior light goes on/off when you manually press door switch. This would show you that the door switch was faulty.

If the water connection to the appliance is one of those watts flood-safe water lines, it may have stuck shut. I've seen this happen when the house water pressure is too high.

Does it still make ice?

If so, then the water connection is good, and either the switch in the water dispenser has failed or the water shutoff valve for the water dispenser has gone bad.

Some models have a problem with the water line getting frozen, such that simply leaving the light on in the water dispenser compartment overnight and/or manually defrosting the unit can get it working again.
