Water Not dispensing from refrigerator door

I've had this good Amana fridge/freezer for @ 10yrs, and now all of a sudden the water will not dispense from the door (it clicks like it will dispense but doesn't) - please help? Could hard water have blocked it off?

I have a GE side by side refridgerator and have had the same problem 2 times. Under the freezer door is a the water tube which carries the water to the exit tube. You can locate the tube by removing the grill at base of fridge. Their you will see a connector connecting the 2 tubes. Seperate the tubes, take the feeder tube and hold it over a bowl, then you must close the door for the switch to work. Once door is closed, push dispenser switch on and if water flows into the bowl you are good from the main valve and your problem is in the door which is most likely a frozen line. It usually freezes near the bottom of the door. Reconnect tubing. Leave the door open for 10 minutes and use a hair dryer to that area so you can defrost the tubing. Be careful not to overheat the rubber gasket on the inside of the door because you will mess up the seal. After heating, close the door and retry switch. Good luck!

That is a possibility .. no knowing exactly what model you are speaking of I would check the water inlet valve.

Water dispenser on fridge not working - water pressure fine, could the line be frozen and why would that start happening all of a sudden?


Check to see if the water reservoir in the bottom of the frig is frozen. If it is, you will need to turn the frig temp down.

My Amana french door/bottom freezer is leaking water. Did the procedure with hot water the drain in back of the freezer, although it seemed clear of ice. That didn't help. The leaking stops when I...


Two possibilities:
1. A cracked plastic tube. These will leak whenever there's a call for water - either the chilled water dispenser, or re-filling the icemaker tray (two seperate tubes). Pay particular attention to anywhere the tubes are clamped to the chassis; anywhere they're routed near or under the refrigeration unit; and near the solenoid valve - especially if there's a tight loop in the tube there.
2. A bad (leaking) connection where one of the tubes exits the water valve. Again, these will leak whenever the valve is activated.

Those plastic tubes don't last forever. I've replaced many of them for the same symptoms. They're known to simply deteriorate with age.
Manuf's make good money selling replacement tubing kits.

Maytag French Door MFD2561HEB water dispenser not working


We had the same issues with the water freezing and called a technician out. He added some extra insulation installed around the water lines inside the refrigerator and we also keep our frig at 40 degrees Fahrenheit, slightly above the manufacturers default setting. Hope this helps.

Water dispenser not working


I have a Hitachi R-M800GM.

When i operate the water dispenser, water flows out from the dispenser [not strong flow]. There is also water flowing out at the bottom of the freezer door [hinge area]

I think the line running inside the freezer door may have come loose? If so, how to reattach it? Do u have any layout drawings of how the hose is being connected.

Please help.

Thanks,

Rick

Internal water dispenser stopped working


I lowered the temp on the freezer to 4 overnight, by morning water dispenser is working fine. I think that when we changed the temp to 7 (in order to make more ice ) it froze the water pipe going to the dispenser. I am going to keep both fridge and freezer at 5 ,and hope this will not happen again.

Water dispenser inside fridge does not dispense water


Are the water inlet / outlet correctly fitted onto the filter ??
Sounds silly - but very easy mistake seen several times.
Is the water supply for the filter turned on . . remove hoses from filter to verify. - YOU WILL GET WET.
