Ge Refrigerator Floods my new basement

6 posts in this topic

My GE refrigerator is only 5 years old. I came home last night after a family party, Once i entered the house I noticed my main floor was flooded. I smelt a burnt smell and It was my Ge Refrigerator, 2006 model. It had a fried circuit board and my newly remodeled basement was flooded. The problem was, my water dispenser was stuck on and was running water in my house for about three hours. What in thee hell is the problem ??? I'm seriously pissed. Anyone else have this B.S. problem with a GE refrigerator? It is a side by side. This is going to cost me some serious $$

Pitch the fridge (whatever the model # is) - When you renovate after the flood damage, install a floor drain near refrigerator :thumbsup:

Dispenser switch could be stuck but usually when i see this happen it is due to a bad water valve.

It has always been my impression that the solenoids for the watervalve are designed to burn out if in use exceeding a certain amt of time to prevent this sort of problem.

Desgined <> manufactured

Valves can get stuck open and, of course, there is no such thing as failure proof. Just check recent news events.
