    ice dispenser works but water dipenser does not.

    The ice maker makes ice. When switched to water it makes noise as if going to dispense but no water comes out. Thought maybe it was both ice and water but ice maker is still kicking out ice.

    I have a GE model # GSH25SGRB. About a month ago, the water stopped coming out. Ice works fine. My husband took it all apart and blew air through the line. He also ran a weed eater cord through it because he figured there was ice in the line due to freezing up. The line was fine---water still came out, but not when he hooked it back up, so we knew there was something blocking the line---ice. Turns out, it worked, but only for about a day. We're back to no water and I'm very frustrated. I have read several other forums about the SAME fridge problem with GE's and I have a neighbor who I have heard also has the same problem with hers.....all almost 4 years old. GE should have had a recall or offered to fix this problem if they knew it occurred. We have no idea what to do now and don't want to have someone come out to fix it when it will happen again. We have had this fridge for almost 4 years, so no warranty.

    Exact same as Shellyn's but works intermittently!!!!! We're trying the "Light on for 6 hours" trick right now but not confident!!

Sounds like a frozen waterline. 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.

Ice maker not working

my icemaker has a wire overfill sensor which shuts off the icemaker if there is too much ice in the basket. If this wire gets pushed up it will stop making ice until level lowers OR manually lowered.

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.

Icemaker works fine, only dispenses water

make sure that the ice shoot is not clogged up with ice or the in the ice basket where the ice goes through. Sometimes the ice can be stuck together and jam and nothing will come out.

Ice and Water not dispensing. Light button not working

INSIDE THE DISPENSER ASSEMBLY IS A SEPARATE ELECTRONIC BOARD THAT CONTROLS THE DISPENSER.
OCCASIONALLY, THE DOOR SOLENOID OR THE CUBE ICE SOLENOID WILL SHORT OUT CAUSING A BURNOUT OF THE DISPENSER CONTROL BOARD. CHECK FOR A BURNT SMELL COMING FROM THE DISPENSER HOUSING. IF YOU SMELL IT, THE BOARD AND/OR SOLENOID NEED TO BE REPLACED.

Water dispenser

Hello, If you can see the water line inside the freezer case you might try using a hair blow dryer to try to thaw it out to get water flowing again? Good Luck! Dr. Know
