The water dispenser on my GE side by side refrigerator stays running sometimes when used. Is this a sign of a faulty valve?
Answer Hello Joel. Check the switch and see if it is sticking. If not, you will need to replace the water valve on the unit.
I'm looking for a water valve. I don't know the number model.
Answer Hello Ernesto. Based on the model number provided, WR57X10012 is the correct water valve.
My GE side-by-side refrigerator GSS25JEPEBB does not appear to have a water filter. Is that correct or am I looking in the wrong place?
Answer Hello Paul, you are correct, your model does not have a factory installed water filter. You could install a universal in line filter 4392945 that you can mount on the back of the unit. Hope this helps!
I replaced the water inlet valve but water will not feed into the ice maker.
Answer Hello Al,
What you should do is cycle the icemaker and check voltage at the water valve. If you are getting voltage then you may want to check to make sure fill tube is not frozen. Also you may need to replace water filter is the dispenser flow is low as well. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
Please advise of how to uninstall the old part, and then reinstall the new one.
Answer Hello Edwin,
Dis-connect the unit from the power supply to prevent electrical shock or death. Turn the water supply off to the unit. Remove the water supply line from the back of the unit. Remove the rear bottom cover if necessary and remove the water valve mounting screws, (1/4 inch hex). Holding the new water valve beside the old one, transfer the water lines and power connections one at a time from the old one to the new one. Reconnect the water supply and turn the water back on. Check for leaks. If no leaks are present, remount the water valve to the cabinet of the unit and reinstall the rear bottom cover. Plug the unit back in and the job is complete.
