GE Eterna series water dispenser
« on: December 02, 2013, 02:22:43 PM »
Hi all,

I am looking for some suggestions regarding a water dispensing issue in a GE Eterna (2004 Model GSH25JFXWW) refrigerator which has stopped dispensing. Ice maker and dispenser works fine, a low sound is heard when the water dispenser is activated but no water comes out. It would be greatly appreciated if anyone has any suggestions as to what and how to trouble shoot the problem.  Thanks......Ted.

First take the kick plate off under the doors. Under the freezer door you will see the connection for the water in the door. Disconnect it and engage the dispenser for the water in the door. If it comes out there it's froze in tube in the door if not next I would check the water valve.
It's not the legacy you leave, it's the lives you impact

Once you get it thawed out GE has a kit that adds a small heater to keep it from freezing again (If the freezer lining is metal). You can also just leave the light on. The heat from the 6 watt bulb is usually enough to keep the tube from freezing again.

Thanks for the suggestions olyteddy and Jdm, I just got home from having surgery and will check your suggestions when I feel up to the task.
