Question:

Hi there, the water dispense works but no ice. I replaced the circuit board last yeas as well as thermistor. I have external water filter and bypassed the internal filter many years ago but ice maker worked fine. The dispenser circuit board is working fine. I reset the ice maker but still no ice. I also turned off the ice maker for a while. When i started back, i notice water flow out of the ice maker but stopped! Any suggestions and related part no is appreciated.

Masoud for model number PSC23MSTCSS
Answer:

Hi Masoud, Thank you for the great question. It sounds like your Water Inlet Valve (Part# PS304374) or your Ice Maker (Part# PS1993870) might be malfunctioning. You should test your Water Inlet Valve first with a multi-meter to see if that part is not working. Your water valve has two solenoids on it. One for your water dispenser and the other for your ice maker. The ice maker side might not be working. If you find that your water valve is fine, it is probably your Ice Maker that you will need to replace. I hope that helps!

Question:

My GE refrigirator makes ice ok. Water comes up to the connection underneath the front but not up to water dispenser. I set the freezer to the lowest fo 2 days but still no water from dispenser. I observed that a thermometer that i placed in the freezer shows round 10 degrees . Thank you

nikolas for model number gsh25jfxn ww
Answer:

Hi Nikolas, Thank you for your inquiry. The water inlet valve is the most common part that fixes this issue, but some other parts that may fix the issue are the water filter, the dispenser door solenoid assembly, the electronic control board, the micro switch and the union connector. You are getting water to the ice maker so I would suggest testing these other parts first to see if they are causing the issue as well. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Question:

The water dispenser trickles out and the ice cubes are smaller than usual - so it's a low flow problem. I removed the filter and put on the bypass cap and now i get no water. Thoughts on what is wrong/what part would need to be replaced?

Tera for model number DSH F6VGBCCBB
Answer:

Hi Tera, Thank you for your inquiry. The most common parts that may fix this issue are the dual water inlet valve, the ice and water filter, the dispenser door solenoid assembly, the micro switch, the union connector and the water filter head and tube assembly. I would check on the filter and bypass cap where they were recently removed to see if this is the issue. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Question:

Hi, we live in an area with unusually hard water and often have issues with plumbing fixtures. Our 3 year old GE refrigerator pse29ksebcss suddenly stopped producing ice but still dispenses cold water. Is there a simple test to confirm that we should replace the dual inlet water valve wr57x10032 and not the ice maker? Thanks in advance.

Paul for model number PSE29KSEBCSS
Answer:

Hello Paul, thank you for contacting us. If you can still dispense water then it wont be the water valve. There is a solenoid in the ice maker that controls the flow of water to prevent over flow. If this is faulty the ice maker will not fill up with water to make ice. Hope this helps!

Question:

What should the coils ohm to on this water valve when it's good? Please let me know for each coil.

Matt for model number GSH25ISXBSS
Answer:

Hello Matt, thank you for contacting us. Because the reading can vary from brand to brand and from model to model, there is no one reading you should receive. However, if your test produces a reading of infinity, then the solenoid is bad and the water valve should be replaced. Hope this helps!

Question:

Water is freezing in the bottom of frig on the freezer side, the water despenser freezes no water and the ice cubes are wet and misses the ice tray.

Larry for model number GSH25JSXJSS
Answer:

Hi Larry, Thank you for your inquiry. It sounds like you might need to check both your ice maker and water inlet valve to see if those parts are still working correctly. I would first check your water inlet valve with a multi-meter to see if both solenoids on that part are still working. It could be that the valve is sending up water too frequently or too much at a time. Good luck!

Iced up freezer compartment in sxs

So I replaced a burnt out defrost heater; replaced the thermostat for good measure and STILL the freezer compartment was freezing up. WHY didn't I look more closely at the ice making system sooner!!?? Thought about it for a while and decided that it had to be that the solenoid in the water valve was NOT shutting off water flow to ice maker (overflowing the icemaker and running over & down interior of freezer compartment making an icberg).

Took off about 4-5 backcover screws with one size nut driver. Moved to a size larger driver to remove 1 screw holding on the water valve. And what some people don't realize is that you can push in the connectors (push them down) and THEN pull the water lines out as long as you're careful and someone hasn't already tugged on the waterlines with some force. You don't have to cut the lines off at the valve. Put the water lines in the new valve and put one screw back in it; then 4-5 backcover screws and you're done!!! At most 15 minutes...that is if you want to clean the condensor unit located behind the backcover (on the newer models within the last 4-6 years).

EASY!!! Do it yourself and save a BUNCH of money. If you're getting a flooded freezer compartment or icebergs created in there then check whenever you hear the icemaker drawing in water and see if water is running down the interior.....problem solved!

Water in door dispensor quit working

First, I turned off the water supply line to the refrigerator from the house at the wall and unplugged the power cord. Secondly, I removed the small screws that hold the piece of cardboard over the opening in the lower left corner (rear of the refrigerator) by the compressor. Thirdlyl, I removed the other end of the water line where it attaches to the water valve with an adjustable end wrench. Then I removed the small screw that holds the double water outlet valves to the refrigerator frame. I then removed the water valve by pulling it out of the rear of the refrigerator, unplugged the electrical connections, and cut the water lines where they enter the valves. I then plugged the electrical connectors into the new valves and pushed the hoses into their respective openings. These are one-way connectors - once you push them in (firmly) they will not leak or come back out. All I did then was replace the valve and secure it with the one little screw and then replace the cardboard piece onto the rear of the refrigerator. Don't forget to turn the water supply back on. That's it!!

Ice maker making no ice

I first replaced in-line water filter to the fridge. No ice. Then I replaced the water filter inside the fridge. Still no ice. I inspected the water inlet feeding the ice cube trays and it was froze up with ice. I removed the two screws holding the ice maker in place to remove the ice from the inlet tray. I then used a hair dryer to melt the ice accumulated in the in-coming water tube. Turned off the water and unplugged the fridge. When replacing the old water valve, I first blew through the hose feeding the ice maker to be sure that it was clear of ice. After re-attaching the water hoses and the electrical connections, I turned on the water, plugged in the fridge and turned the ice maker switch back on. Next morning I had ice cubes. Only mystery is I am not hearing the usual water noise when water is feeding the cube tray like I did before, - not to worry though if it works. My drawer is now full of cubes.

No water from the dispenser

I pulled-out & unplugged the refrigerator. Removed the screws to gain access through the lower back panel. The water valve is on the left side as I face the back of the fridge. It has one screw holding it to the frame of the fridge. Once it is free, the main water hose is unscrewed and the two out-let lines were pulled-out. If your valve was not ruined prior to this, it is ruined now, as the lines will not re-seat. Then everything is done in reverse order. I did cut 1/2 inch off of the two lines so that they reseat into the new valve. Just push into the valve and they are good.

Water not dispensing

Background: My refrigerator was part of the class action law suit back in 2006. As a result both doors, the auger in the ice maker and a heating element in the freezer were all replaced.

Problem this time: Water was not dispensing.

Solution: Replaced the double outlet water valve in the back lower left portion of the refergerator. Water was coming into it from the water filter hose, but not coming out of it when the water dispenser in the front was engaged.

Further, I found that the coils in the back of the freezer were iced up and I therefore defrosted them with a heater. Thus, the original problem encountered with the law suit, did not get fixed by simply replacing the doors. That problem is still there. I think the defroster/heating element in the freezer is again not working.

However, I do now have water flowing again and the installation was, as others have described, very easy. Thanks for the online help.

Ice maker inlet tube was freezing up, and eventually the icemaker overfilled and completely froze up

After lots of research online, i narrowed my problem down to be the double outlet water valve, behind the fridge. My biggest problem was getting the refridgerator out of its spot, but after that it was pretty simple to change. I took the cover off the bottom, in the back of the fridge, then i removed the inlet waterline (after i turned off the water supply to the fridge). After that i removed the screw that holds the valve to the framework. Now i pulled off the two other waterlines from the old valve and moved them, one at a time, over to the new valve, along with the wire harness. The rest of the instalation was reverse order. Simple fix that im glad i didn't pay an expert to do!

No water dispensed from door tap, icemaker ok

The problem was both the valve and a frozen slug of water in the supply line located inside the door. After replacing the valve, I turned the freezer to a setting of 1 and in about 30 hours, water flowed out the tap.
