# GE side by side fridge, water dispenser is not working

Our fridge is not dispensing water for about 2 weeks now. Checked if the door is closed properly, it is. We had a repairman check it, he said the tube is frozen, he tried to melt the ice with hot water, it didn't work, he even melted part of the tubing but he replaced it though. he then said he can't do it. How do we thaw the ice ? or do you think it really is frozen?

I fixed mine by leaving the light on the dispenser on. It took about 6 hrs, but the little heat from the light bulb was enough to defrost the water line.

Can I ask you where is that tube located, in the refrigerator's door, how he worked on it? Do you still have this problem or you found solution? Please let me know anyway.

### I've had a GE Profile side by side (model # GSS25SGPCSS) with in door water and ice dispenser for approx. 6 years. This week the in door water dispenser stopped working. I removed and replaced the filter...

I have the same fridge and the water line freezes up in the door on a regular basis. I have to use a hair dryer and slowly wait for it to melt. It takes about 30 minutes and then works fine for awhile. It has become quite a habit that I'm not thrilled about. Don't waste your money replacing the board or anything else. GE was no help and I'm now shopping for a new fridge bc of this issue. Needless to say that it won't be a GE! Hope this helps.

### Ice and Water not dispensing. Light button not working

http://www.repairclinic.com/0100_1.asp
There's an ice- or water-dispensing problem The ice and water-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Many components work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from a simple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most other components are not user serviceable. We suggest that you contact a qualified appliance repair technician for such repairs.

### GE refrigerator freezer water dispenser failure GSH25JFTA

Some have said that if you are fridge is still making ice, then your water line may be frozen. So you need to let it thaw out by leaving the freezer door open. Figure out somewhat to try and keep the cold air in by using plastic sheeting or something, until the line thaws. You can't dispense water with the door open, so reach up press the button that makes it think its closed and try to dispense the water..or just shut the door to test it out. I am going to try this when I get home today, because I am having the same problem on my GE model# GSH25JFTA BB.

### Ice dispenser won't work, light won't work.ge side by side fridge

A GE uses a 12 volt bulb . It will not come on , if you went and bought a bulb with the same receptical end . HAS to be a 12 volt .

### G.E. Side by side model quit dispensing water. The refrigerator door was not completely closed overnight. Is is possible the water line froze since the freezer had to run so much

It is possible the water line inside the freezer door froze . Remove the bottom kick plate and follow the white tubing about 6" to a coupling . Push in on the white ring and at the same time , pullout on the tubing . Push the water dispensor , and if water comes out of the hose going under the fridge , this means the line is frozen in the door . If no water comes out , it means the water tank at the bottom of the fridge section (behind crispers ) is probably frozen . A hair dryer should work on the tank , but , a different procedure will be needed to thaw the door . Come back if door is frozen for the procedure .

### Maytag Water Dispenser Problem

If your water supply line is not pinched closed somewhere and the fridge has electricity supplied then it may be the solenoid operated water supply valve that has failed. This electric actuated valve should open when you activate the switch in the door with your glass.
