Water dispenser stops working but ice maker was fine

First, I replaced my water filter but when it didn't work I googled the problem and the most advice I found was the double outlet water valve must be bad. SO I ordered the parts thru parts select. But when I installed the valve, the water dispenser still didn't working. I went back to parts select website and to see if somebody had the same problem. A gentlemen posted that if the water line is frozen, no water will come out. So I defrosted my refrigerator and turned it on again and it finally work. So now, I wasn't sure if the REAL problem I had was just frozen line or a bad valve. I decided to keep the water valve since my ref was almost 10yrs old. (But I still don't know why my water line froze.)

The repair is easy enough, only problem I had was that I ordered the wrong part initially. Unfortunately, on the parts schematic there are two different parts listed and I didn't realize it. I did not look at my water valve prior to ordering, and naturally ordered the wrong one. One good thing, with the wrong part, there is a video showing the repair which I had watched. When I got the right part, the repair was basically the same as the video.

Water in Door would not cut off. Solinoid on flap ice shute would not close. Corroded and inoperable.

The video instructions were outstanding in showing how this repair was to be completed. Follow these instructions and Job was very easy. Replaced ice shute flapper and arm, soloinoid and Micro switch for water flow control. Reassemble by reversing procedure. Follow video instructions on how to replace water control valve in back of fridge. Test water flow at bottom front of fridge and defrost flow tube in door if necessary. I used tupperware container with hot water on top of ice shute shelf in fridge door. A couple of times changing and water was flowing. Great site and detailed video instructions for an effective and cost saving self repair. I saved several service trips and service calls and labor costs of a service tect. Parts costs were also a lot cheaper than service tech would have charged. Thanks PartSelect.

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

Removed all parts necessary, solenoid, recess retainer, dispencer door recess crank, and assembly flapper. Hardest part was getting old highly rusted screws out so I could remove the necessary parts. I replaced all screws with stainless steal screws, so the next time they will come out easier. This is the second time i've had to replace the solenoid because of rusty solenoid plunger, very poor design, not to mention the couple times i've taken the solenoid out to clean off the rust, but eventually its stops working because of the excessive rust on the plunger.

Flapper valve on icemaker wouldn't close anymore

Watched a video as prep. Popped plastic trim off(always scary, thinking plastic will break and it won't go back on), unscrewed control panel and popped wires off. replaced the items I had bought except micro switch which was fine. cleaned all the muck off the innards, replaced all plastic without anguish. I filled a glass with ice and watched with glee as the flapper slammed shut, keeping room air out and curing my iced up icemaker problem. God bless PartSelect!

Ice not dropping in chute, frequent freezing up of dispenser.

My GE Arctica refrigerator was constantly freezing up the chute that drops the ice. I googled the problem and found a youtube video on how to replace the solenoid and the dispenser door flapper. Repair was simple, removed the front panel with a small screwdriver, removed the circuit board and rear plastic assembly. Unscrewed the 2 screws holding the solenoid in place and snapped out the old flapper. Immediately I could tell the problem because the flapper was warped an not allowing a seal to form on the door. Youtube is great and I frequently go there to see if someone has made a video with the maintenance problems that I am having around the house. PartsSelect had my replacements here in one day. Saved a couple of hundred on a service call.

Ice maker not making ice and leaking

  • Customer: Andy from Ft Pierce FL

I took off the front cover of the icemaker assembly and found that the gears were not meshing properly and therefore slipping. I removed the front panel and found that the white plastic cam unit under the large gear wheel had disengaged from the hole in the front plate which is why the gears were slipping. I refitted the cam and wheel and it worked fine but stopped again for the same reason the next day. As the plate appeared to be buckled somehow (not user repairable) and, as the unit was leaking and pooling water (which froze) in the collection unit, I decided to change the whole icemaker.

Ordered about 1300 on a Thursday, it arrived the next day at noon and was fitted straight away. As others have mentioned, the extension cable required to fit into my old fridge made it quite cumbersome however with a bit of juggling and persuasion, I got it to fit into the cut out corner of the ice container so it is completely out of the way. Job done in about 35 minutes, making ice in an hour.

The video on the GE site was great. Showed step by step instructions on how to remove the old ice maker and install the new one. Also helpful was the detail on the water chute which needed to be moved from the old ice make to the new one. Saved hundreds of dollars by not having to have a repairman do this work for me.
