    Default GE side by side will not dispense water

    Model Number: GSH25JFREWW
    Brand: GE

    Frig is 5 yrs old & will not dispense water, although it does keep making ice & dispense ice. I disconnected the water supply line to check for blockage, but could not find anything, plus the water line is not clear, so I can not do a visual inspection of it. Strangely though there is a small very slow drip from the dispenser. Any suggestions would be appreciaited. thanks jk

    Ok, pull your refrigerator out from the wall, then take off the lower back access panel, then you will see your water inlet valve solenoid on the right side, unmount it, then take off the larger plastic tubing line thats underneath the solenoid, then get a container to catch water in, and put it under that solenoid and push your water dispenser lever, if water comes out fast then, you have a blockage likely in your water tank.

    The water tank is inside your refrigerator section behind your lower crisper's. Use a hair dryer, it may be an ice blockage.

    Okay, I got water out of the solenoid fast. Is there an easy way to get to the tank to remove the blockage? What are my options now ? thanks for the help
    FYI - correct model is GSH25JFRE, on this model the solenoid is on the bottom left & motor on the right.

    Yes,

    The water tank is inside your refrigerator section behind your lower crisper's. Use a hair dryer on it.

    Remove the water line connector also from the bottom of your freezer door, behind the kickplate and see if the water flows out there first though.

    do you mean using the hair dryer on the water line or on the tank itself , actually I don't see access to the tank, there is the coiled up water line inside behind the crisper bin, then another white line which doesn't look like part of the water system.

    Sorry, I forgot to mention the water tank is the coiled water tubing they use now.

    Yes, use the hair dryer on the coiled water tubing.

    unfortunately that is not working after using the hair dryer. What about running compressed air through it ?
