Fridge's water dispenser continues to run

Hello John;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

Neither your ice maker or water dispenser work off your main control board.

There is only one reason that the ice maker will not fill and you water dispenser does not shut off immediately after the contact switch disengages.

Your problem is low water pressure. You have a bad water valve.
After time the water valve seals fail, metal form the water line or corrosion plugs the water supply valve. You need at least 60 PSI water pressure to shut off the water dispenser solenoid valve and at least 60 PSI to open the ice maker water valve and fight the long fill tubing resistance.

Check - Pull your unit out where you can get behind it. Turn power off to your unit. Turn the water valve off. With towels under the unit water connection and a large bucket ready, disconnect the water supply line. With the water valve shut off you will probably get a steady stream of low water flow. The valve is bad. If not, open the water valve with the water line in the bucket. Is the water flow 60 PSI? Probably not.

Use a hair dryer to completely dry the solenoid valve and electrical area before you plug your unit back in

You need to replace the valve.

Before you do the above. Just in case you move your unit check for a bend or closure in the water line.

I have a GSS25QGPD BB and it intermittently leaks water from the freezer side. I assume it has something to do with filling the ice trays, because it's not a huge amount of water. Even it I turn off...

your drain tray is frozen over behind the rear inside panel and when it defrosts the water cant run don the drain tube into the collector so it collects at the bottom of the freezer,its a 6" hose just "ROD" it out to the drain pan and it will be ok

The water dispenser in my refrigerator ice maker is leaking

if you have recently changed your filter, had the water turned off, or disconnected from the ref this is a common problem. you have air in your water line. fill 5-6 large cups of water or until it stops spurting and your drip should go away

When ice maker fills the water spills over edge of ice tray and down into ice storege bin. This creates large ice clumps that that jam unit. Is there a water pressure regulator that I can turn down...

Good day,
No pressure regulator. When the ice maker goes thru a harvest, at the end, it turns on the water valve for 7 seconds, after which the valve must shut off smartly.

The usual cause, is the valve in the rear back of the machine contunues to weep for a while, causing an overfill situation.
Replacing the valve is the only known solution.
This is based on the fact it worked propery at one time, and your not connected to a well, which has a regulator, that is set too high.

Thank you for using FixYa

Ice maker leaks water

The GE Icemaker has a center bottom plunger that drives the ice cube discharge tray up and down. If that center plunger oring has failed the ice maker will leak in a drip drip drip fashion. If it only leaks once every cube cycle then it is overflowing when filling. This can be corrected 2 ways. One is to turn of the water supply line and disconnet the water line on the back of the unit. Place the hose into a large bowl of some kiind and then have someone open the valve until the flow is full and then reduce that flow about 50 percent. Remember how many turns it took to get that flow and shut off the water supply line. Then reconnect the line and turn on the water the number of turns you counted when shutting off the water. The PROPER way of setting the water flow timing is to frome the front cover of the ice maker and turn the adjustment screw in the DECREASE direction. My suspicions are that the plunger o-ring is leaking. It costs nearly as much to have the service call to replace the o-ring as it does to replace the ice maker. Your choice but I would replace the icemaker if the plunger is leaking. (mid-bottom point of ice maker) Just note that once a leak occurs in the plunger area if the plunger has corroded the new o-ring will wear out rapidly.

Our GE profile 24.6 cubic ft refrigerator is overfilling the ice maker. What is the problem. It is leaking (just dripping) out of the ice cube trays.Thanks.

It either puts too much water in when it fills(take the plastic end cover off and look for an adjustment knob with +/-. Turn it toward -) Or does it constantly keep dripping all the way through the cycle(replace water inlet valve.)

Ice maker has a clog

Unplug refrigerator first and then try defrosting the pipe or remove the blockage. I think most times water freezes in pipe diverting the flow. Let me know what you find blocking flow. Also need the complete model number, Thanks, Sea Breeze
