    My ice maker is working properly but the dispenser isn't. The in door water and ice dispenser won't work. When a glass trips the paddle the dispenser light dims and there's a electrical groan, like it's trying to work but the auger is blocked, but it isn't.

    My Ice maker is working but the crushed and cubed ice won't dispense ice. When the paddle is pushed in to get the ice, the light dims and the small ice door doesn't always open but no ice is dispensed. The auger doesn't turn and the solenoid doesn't energize for the crushed ice. I replaced the 5 button fornt panel but no help.

    The other post says it all just started today oh and my fridge moans also this is covereed in another post seems to be the same fix, change the main electrical board

  • Anonymous Dec 16, 2007

    The motor that drives the cube auger doesn't run. I took it out and it had a small coating of frost on it. I clipped a 115 vac jumper onto the motor terminals and it would not run. After the frost melted, the motor would run OK. Is there a small heater element somewhere that keeps frost from building up on this motor?

For a very informative video on trouble shooting your refrigerator

I had the problem with no water or ice dispenced and the lights dim when dispencer is used and the refrigerator compresser stops after using the dispencer and had to unplug and reset unit. GE DID NOT WARANTY IT. I bought a new motherboard for about $88 and fixed my problem. As the video shows there can be other problems that will cause some of these symptoms but not all at once. My frige was only 2 years old when this happened.

I have a similar model refrigerator and problem and had a techincian look at it yesterday. He replaced the main electrical board on the back of the refrigerator and told me it was covered be a factory recall or extended waranty from GE didn't charge anything, said that GE was covering the cost.

Sounds like the motor that turns the ice auger is overloading the system, maybe shorting to ground.

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."

Door dispenser stopped dispensing, starting making a constant clicking and now the entire fride isn't working

We had the same problem. Our frigerator is 1.5 year old. Everytime we try to dispence water or ice the dispencer clicks and the whole thing turns of. We had a GE repairman come by: the electronic board needs to be replaced: total cost $350. (cost of the board only: $150. We are considering disconnecting the dispencer by unplugging the board (according to the repain man the ice maker wil still work)or buy a new refrigurator (for sure NO GE!!!!!!)

Water Dispencer not working.

check your freezer for ice. do you have alot of ice in your ice maker tray? if so your water line could be frozen. try to self defrost the freezer for about 3hrs to thaw out the water line. check your water valve also. when you call for water do you hear a humming or buzzing noise? on ge fridges ive worked on if you hear a humming noise when calling for water, most likely your water valve is ok. trace the water. meaning where does the water start? at the wall then through a hose then to your valve which is behind fridge on bottom. trace the hoses and you will find the prob
