    We have had the same problem with our G.E. profile refrigerator. Water has been dripping from underneath the bottom of the black frame around the dispenser. The inside of the dispenser compartment is dry.

    Have the same problem with GE Profile PSS26SGRB SS. It has a SS side trim / beauty cover instead of black. How did you remove the trim? I see that it has a gasket / seal and was afraid it might break if I used a screw driver to pry it open. Also, is you water drip clear. mine is cloudy & sticky... suspect it might be condensation.

1. How do I get repairs done under warranty?

* If your refrigerator is under warranty, you must use an Authorized Service Company.
An Authorized Service Company can be found by using our Service Locator. Enter your zip code on the Service Locator to get a listing of available service companies in your area.
* You can also schedule service by calling our toll free number:
800-374-4432 M-F 9:00am - 5:30pm.

2. How do I order parts?

* Parts can be ordered through an Authorized Frigidaire Parts Distributor.
An Authorized Parts Distributor can be found by using our Parts Distributor Locator. Enter your zip code on the Parts Distributor Locator to get a listing of distributors in your area.

Back
3. Noises / Sounds.

* Dripping sound.
During the defrost, water draining from the freezer section will drip into the pan by your compressor in the back and bottom of your refrigerator.
* Air rushing or blowing.
There is a fan in the freezer section and in some models in the back and bottom of your refrigerator to circulate air. This is a normal sound.
* Louder when starting or coming on.
Compressor operates at a higher pressure when first starting and noise should disappear as refrigerator continues to run and balance pressures.
* Popping, crackling, or sizzling about once a day.
If your model is self-defrosting, the defrost system utilizes a heater to remove the ice and frost from the freezer coil. During this period you will hear some expansion noises as heat is applied to the coil and you may experience some sizzling sounds as the melting water drips on the heater.
* Running water.
If you have an ice maker equipped model, the ice maker will call for water as the old batch of cubes is ejected and the ice maker starts to make more cubes. This will last for about 10 seconds and is normal.
* Vibrating or rattling noises.
The following can be sources of these noises:
1. Dish vibrating on shelf - move dish slightly.
2. Floor is uneven or cannot adequately support refrigerator. Use shims or extra support.
3. Items on top of refrigerator are rocking. Place a pad under the item or remove.
4. Refrigerator is not level. Adjust leveling legs or rollers as needed. Add shims in the back if floor is not level from front to back.
5. Refrigerator is touching wall or cabinets. See your owner's manual for space requirements.
* Snapping or clicking sound.
If your refrigerator is equipped with an ice maker the water valve will snap on when the ice maker is calling for water. This is normal. In some cases you may not have the water connected to your ice maker and the sound will be greater. In these cases, pull the wire signal arm (bail arm) on the ice maker in the up position to turn your ice maker off until the water supply line is installed.

Back
4. Taste and odors.

* Ice or food has a bad taste or odor.
Ice and uncovered foods can pick up odors or taste from strong smelling foods in the refrigerator or freezer. Cover foods tightly and discard old ice.
* Ice tastes like plastic.
Plastic water lines will give off a taste when first used. It takes one or two containers of ice for plastic to stop leeching. Discard initial container of ice after installation.

Back
5. Ice maker - not making any ice.

* Freezer may not be cold enough.
Temperature must be 5 F. or colder to work properly.
* Water supply valve may be blocked or restricted.
Supply valve must have a 1/4" opening for water to fully supply ice maker. Many self-piercing valves do not have this big of an opening. Replace water supply valve with one that has a 1/4" opening.
* Water supply valve may not be open.
Find and open the supply valve.
* Wire signal arm on ice maker is in the up position.
This position shuts off the ice maker. Pull wire arm (bail arm) down to start ice making.

Will not dispence water


My water dispensor INSIDE the door froze up.
I payed a repair guy $75 to use MY BLOWDRYER to "thaw" the frozen water line INSIDE the freezer door (below the water dispenser).

He said anytime the frozen food extends over the freezer shelf and touches the freezer door for a long enough period of time, the water line inside the door FREEZES!!

PREVENTION: "Keep some airspace between the door and frozen food."

Water dispencer works and stops, works and stops


I have a similar refrigerator and there is a problem with the the water line freezing in the area of the freezer door. You can solve it by removing everything perishable from fridge and shutting it down. I have had to do this twice and it works. We now keep the freezer set at 1 and it has been fine for a year. GE does make a small electric aftermarket heater that goes in the door area if needed.

How do i remove water dispenser apparatus to further insulate the freezing water line. have shute and control panel out but can't get black plastic backing out to access water line. thx,greg


I haven't heard of anyone being able to to add insulation. The interior of the door is already filled with foam. This is a defect with GE fridges. Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";} . GE makes a heater that will prevent this from happening again. The part number for this heater is WR49X10173.
The inexpensive way to insulate it is to tape insulation to the inside of the door in the area of the dispenser. Not pretty but cheap.



I have heard of GE replacing the door for free. You would have to call Ge to find out about that.

The ice dispencer would produce ice


Dear Adriana, I have the exact problem. I have yet to find a clear solution to this problem. The temp in the freeze seems to oscillate too much, and the leaking water led to a damaged light in mine.

Have you discovered a solution? It was recommended by a repairman to replace the controller board for the unit. I have yet to implement this approach. Wondering what others have discovered.

Leak from bottom of fridge


Two things might be happening. One is the line to the fridge is leaking, this line come thru the floor or wall to the bottom and hooks up to a water valve, it may just need tightening. The other problem is you will have a hose that runs from the filter down in behind the crisper drawers to the bottom and coils up here to hold water for cold use. it then runs thru the bottom pan out to the front, to the bottom door hinge on the freezer side up the door to the dispencer. Check along the hose for a pin hole look at the bottom hinge area first, things bump into it here and can damage the plastic cover.

GE Side by Side Refrigerator seeping water onto door


Hey, thanks for the photos. Have seen this problem before. Seal the recess area, at the front edge and the front corners, with a little clear silicone, to prevent water from getting behind the stainless steel door panel. I've heard people say to seal the rectangular holes along the bottom side of the door panel recess cut out also, but that shouldn't be necessary, as if you still had water behind the panel, it would just then seep down behind the SS door panel and continue to cause problems. The real cure is to keep water from getting in there in the first place.

Ice maker working, but no water despensing


The water tube is frozen at a point about 2-4 inches from where it comes out of the door. GE has a heater kit available to repair this by calling GE Parts 1-800-626-2002 or online at www.geappliances.com. It is pretty easy to install but you might want to allow a GE factory technician to take care of it since it involves pulling the dispenser PC board off and changing a couple of wires around.

Leak running down front


Take the recess cup out and seal the area around it right where the front stainless steel panel meets the recess (right at the front of the recess) with clear silicone to prevent water from getting inside the door, then running out of the plastic frame area around the dispenser and running down the freezer door or out the bottom of the door. After the silicone has set, replace drip cup.
