GE Profile PSS26SGPASS - Water in reservoir is frozen


GE fridge is not dispersing water anymore. It's dispensing Ice but not water.

Researched online and found that maybe installing a heater kit may work.

Purchased a "General Electric WR49X10173 DISPENSER WATER TUBE HTR" kit but the fridge has a plastic liner and this part does not apply.

Short of having to replace the fridge door, any other suggestions?

what part of the line is frozen? If it is just frozen in the door , you can easily remove that line to thaw it out.

Its the door..it works after its thawed but then the problem is back after a week or so.

For now, turning on the light at the dispenser and leaving it ON seems to work...

GE has this same problem for over 13 years. You would think they could get it fixed, but no. As far as I know there is no solution to your problem if you have a plastic liner. Leave the light on.

You would think so!

I hope GE fridge buyers would consider this when purchasing..

I got a quote from GE to replace the freezer door (part number WR78X11539) has a retail price of $518.50, however GE offered this for the price of $200.00, plus shipping and handling, not including labor to install this..am going to pass on this for now....
