The water dispenser stopped working. I replaced the water inlet valve and I do get water to the quick disconnect. From that point I don't get water to the dispenser. What should I do to get water back to the dispenser?
Answer Hello Jack,
Try heating the water reservoir located behind the lower drawers with a hair dryer. If this works, you will need to set the fresh food section to a colder adjustment to increase the air circulation. This will prevent the cold air from settling at the bottom of the unit and causing the water reservoir to freeze.
does it matter if color wire connetor reverse on water inlet valve
Answer Ki Ki, Yes, it does make a difference which wire is connected to which solenoid. The Red solenoid should have the 1/4 inch plastic tube from the ice maker attached to it and the corresponding wire harness. The Blue solenoid should have the 5/16 inch plastic water tube from the filter/dispenser attached to it, and the remaining harness attached to it. If you reverse the connections, when you select ice and press the paddle, the ice maker will fill and create a problem in the freezer. When the ice maker calls for water to make ice, the dispenser will activate, and you'll have water all over the kitchen floor.
Had slow water dispensing so just replaced the dual inlet water valve, now there is an initial spurt of water and stops. What can I try next. Thanks
The water dispensing slowly, if there is a good water filter in the unit, then the issue would be caused by a faulty water filter head. The part number that would be needed is WR17X20860.
The GE Fridge has slow water dispensing, was just a dribble. I replaced the dual inlet water valve and now there is an initial spurt of water and then stops. What can I try next?
The first thing that you will want to do is make sure that the filter is good. If the filter is good then the issue will be with the water filter head which would need to be replaced.
I need to replace the water inlet line on my ge profile french door refrigerator. I have good water at the house shut off valve, but there must be a clog in the water tubing connected to the fridge. Do you know what type of tubing I need to replace the existing? Thank you.
If you are needing the supply line between the main supply and the refrigerator itself then it is a 1/4" line. Now if you are referring to the connection where the main supply line connects to the refrigerator then this would be the filter and tube assembly which is part number WR17X12301.
I replace water and Ice maker solenoid valve still not getting water my water dispenser and ice maker. Can you help me on this problem. Thanks.
The most likely cause for the unit not getting water to the dispenser or to the icemaker would be a faulty water filter head. The water filter head is part number WR17X20860.
