Question about Frigidaire FRS26KF5C Side by Side Refrigerator
I can shut off the water and remove the filter container pour the water out and reinstall the container. Open the water line again and the water will flow for about three full 10 ounce glasses and then stop. Then it will not flow again at all, although I continue to press the flapper as it is set for water through the door. I can repeat the above sequence and get the same results, water for a short while and then stopping again.
Welcome to fixya.
You said, you can shut off the water and remove the filter container pour the water out and reinstall the container. Open the water line again and the water will flow for about three full 10 ounce glasses and then stop. Then it will not flow again at all, although you continue to press the flapper as it is set for water through the door. You said, you can repeat the above sequence and get the same results, water for a short while and then stopping again.
First you need to try the water filter and leave it out!
Now see if it works. If so the filter is bad.
Remember that if the dispenser paddle is pushed for more than 4 minutes,
the dispenser motor may overload and stop.
The overload protector will automatically reset in 3 to 4 minutes..
if the problem continues you will need a tech hands on to diagnose the problem.
How old is the fridge?

Here is an interesting report I just read!
Repair or replace your appliances?
When to pull the plug on your old refrigerator
It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.
Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.
Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your refrigerator,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.
Follow these guidelines:
When a repair makes sense.
If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old (three years for top-freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that refrigerators under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.
When a repair might be a wise choice.
If your refrigerator is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.
When it pays to replace.
The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new refrigerator.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive top-freezer refrigerator
six or more years old or a bottom-freezer or side-by-side eight or more years old.
Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a refrigerator you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!
