water dispenser on my GE Refrigerator will not dispense water however is dripping into the tray below. Answer
I need the model number because some models have particular problems. All of which are covered by one of these pages Refrigerator Water Dispenser Repair
If your refrigerator is less than 8 years old you should read this page first GE Water Dispenser Repair
Regardless of the model it can be a frozen line, a bad water valve or an electrical problem such as a bad switch or loose connection. The newer models are bad about the line freezing in the door and the older models will often freeze the water reservoir. The newer models will also freeze the water reservoir if there is an airflow problem such as ice blocking airflow or the freezer fan may not be running correctly.
Driping in the tray indicates a bad water valve or air in the line. If the water reservoir is leaking water you can get air in the line which can cause the dripping and it will take a lot longer for water to start dispensing which can make you think the dispenser isn’t working. Note that if this is the case you will be seeing a leak in the floor if you try to dispense often.
