I have a GE Adora model DSHF5PGXAEWW. The water dispenser will not turn off. I replaced the Interface Dispenser ASM and relaced the water filter but no luck. I can`t figure out how to get the inside door panel off to check the dispenser itself. Please help!! Thank you.

is it that the dispenser won't turn off, ie light stays on, or is it just continuously dispensing water yet no electronic sounds or noise. If the latter, disconnect the power to the water valve in the back of the fridge. If it continues to do the same thing, replace the water valve.

The inlet water valve on your fridge is constantly under pressure. When you press the dispenser button, the dispenser sends power to the valve to "open the gate" and let the water flow. It's possible that your "gate" is broken or has something lodged in it. By removing power to the valve, we can determine if the "gate" is constantly open thus broken or jammed. Btw it's a two part "gate" system, so the icemaker side could be fine while the water side is bad but the whole thing must be replaced.

If you replaced the interface, you pretty much were already there. After taking off the interface, remove the housing shield. There's usually four screws holding it in place. Once this is removed, you have access to a microswitch that may be your problem if the valve tests fine.

 Well I got the new part today and I will put it in on Sunday. I did forget to ask one question that I noticed I had an issue with when I was troubleshooting the water valve. How in the heck do you pull out the old water lines from the water inlet valve? I slid the ring up an pulled pretty hard but no luck. Is there a secret that an uniformed novice such as myself is unaware of?

                                              Thanks again for all your help!!!

Press the ring in... not out. You may have to disconnect the other end of the line first to release pressure thereby reducing the diameter of the line.

A 7/16" box wrench works great for pressing the ring and releasing the tube.

A box wrench works just fine. First you have to remove the line from the john guest connection. Slide the box wrench on the line. Reconnect the line and then slide the wrench against the fitting and whaddyaknow... the line comes off again... easy peasy.

Now remember, the preceding maneuver is done by highly trained professionals,. Do not, I repeat, do not try this at home. Doing so may not only affect your psychological well being but will affect the psychological well being of anyone watching.
