Icemaker/water dispenser GE side by side fridge

Hi My GE fridge (side by side) is producing ice but will not dispense it. I don't even hear a motor trying to dispense it. The water was still working when this problem began, but now no water will come out of the dispense either. It's model GSL 22 JFREBS. HELP! I feel like everything in my house is acting up! My email is [email protected] Thanks! -Rachel

press the reset button (black) on the bottom of the icemaker, the system will go through a cycle, and water will pour into the tray.

First thing to check is to see if the optics are working properly. This is the red flashing light on right hand side of freezer wall. Close the flipper door, be sure not to block the beam, and the light should go to solid red. If it does then the optics are ok. If it continues to blink then that is your problem. If optics check ok then pull ice maker out and remove the white plastic cover. It just pulls off. Look at the center of the gear wheel and see if one of the plastic tabs is either broken or if they are sort of twisted and touching eachother. If any of these things with the gear have happened then that module will need to be replaced along with the ice maker thermostat. If your not sure how to replace these parts then just replace the whole ice maker. That is much easier and not much more costly.
After changing the parts or the ice maker out follow these steps to start the ice maker thru a cycle. 1. Remove the ice maker from the cradle but leave the harness connected. Remove the front cover from the module. Unplug the refrigerator. Get a small jumper wire with bare ends and jump T and H on the module, leave the jumper in and set the ice maker on the shelf. Close the door. Now plug the refer back in and wait 30 seconds. Open the door and the ice-maker should be cycling. Remove the jumper, put the module cover back on and set it back in the cradle. The fill should take place when the ejector blades reach the 12:00 position. Follow these steps exactly in order

You may need a service call as the ice dispenser flap is operated by a solenoid which is controlled by a small pwb board which is located by the dispenser.

SOURCE: No water dispensing to the icemaker. Water does dispense through the door dispenser. KitchenAid ksbs25fkbl00

Unplug your refrigerator and leave the freezer door open for 2 hours (The food in the freezer will only partially thaw).

The line supplying the water to the ice maker has frozen...this will un-thaw it.

Water dispenser in door does not dispense


Had this happen on my LG side-by-side a few years back. It's a common part. Find the version for your make and model. Easy ti replace. It is located where the water suppy connects to the bottm refridge.

Ice maker is on but is not producing ice


The ice maker is probably not getting water. Have you heard the water valve click on and off to allow water to flow to the ice maker? If you get chilled water from the fridge, the ice maker's water valve will probably sound very similar to when you dispense chilled water. Try the water to listen for it. Then, listen for it over the course of an hour or so to determine if the ice maker is doing the same thing. If you hear it - then there may be a blockage in the line or filter.

If you don't have provisions to get chilled water from your fridge (ice only) or notice that you can't get water from your fridge any more: Make sure the water supply is on and.. that supply line isn't kinked or got crushed when the fridge was pushed back into position. This is a pretty common occurrence. If you don't hear any water valve clicking, the valve itself may have failed or there may be a problem with the electrical circuit. Hopefully, you won't have to got beyond this, but if so - let us know.

Good luck!

My GE side by side fridge doesn't dispense water.


When you press the handle, do you hear/feel a click?
Is this just starting to happen after a power outage?
Is the ice machine making ice? Dispensing?

Do you have/know how to use a multimeter to check voltages at the water valve solenoid?

Thanks!

I take it this is a G E refrig ? Model number would have helped . If you still hear a hum with door closed , the microswitch behind the dispensor board is bad . Not a computer problem but a simple fix .

GE refrigerator GSS25JFMCWW not dispensing ice but dispense water


I have the same problem with the same unit. I removed the ice tray and held the open door cut-off switch closed. I then pressed the lever to dispense ice. I hear a humm like power is getting to the motor but the motor is not turning. I hear a click like the selonid is engaging. I'm having to assume at this point it's the motor and I am going to go ahead and order a motor. I've found a motor for the unit at partselect.com for $65.54. Hope this helps you.

GE GSS25LGM Ice maker not dispensing ice


You have one of three things wrong. The auger motor is frozen up, the ice bucket is broken or you need to dump out any ice, run warm water through the entire ice bucket, dry it out and try again with fresh cubes. My guess is the auger motor is frozen. You can buy a vinyl boot that covers the auger motor to prevent moisture buildup and freezing from GE Parts at 1-800-626-2002
