Question about Frigidaire Refrigerators

1 Answer

Water Dispenser with mind of it's own

I have a 2 year old Frigidaire side by side refrigerator with ice and water dispenser on the freezer side door. The water dispenser will now, on it's own, shoot out approximately 1/2 to 3/4 a cup of water every other hour or so, the frequency is increasing.

    I have the same problem. I have purchased the Diode Kit #530391828 but nowhere in the manual or online have I been able to figure out where this thing goes. I would rather not guess and tear the whole thing apart. Is this in the door, up behind the ice maker, ??? How do I get to it?

    Thanks!

One test is too turn off your ice maker and it will stop...you have a bad diode on the water line and are getting line feed from the ice maker...

to fix it you will need a new diode
#5303918287 DIODE KIT
#5304418384 DIODE KIT
the parts store will get you the correct one with a model and serial number of the refrigerator

let me know if it helps

I have a 16 year old Frigidaire Gallery Side by Side FRS20ZSH fridge/Freezer. We get water to the filter but not to the door dispenser or the automatic ice maker. Help please?


this could be one or two problems :
fridge door that dispenser is in is not shutting all the way any longer and the safety switch is not allowing anything to come out of dispenser , or the valves in the bottom of fridge are bad (16 years it's time to go too) these valves are not expensive and not hard to replace , just remember to turn water supply off 1st see your local or internet parts supplier to obtain them

Water supply problem most likely. Check inlet solenoid and filter

GE Side By Side Ice Machine & Water dispenser not getting water


you may have a pin hole in your water line to your dispenser or you could be leaking at the water valve itself on the water dispenser side. you'll have to pull the refrigerator out from the wall and look where the main water line goes into the back of the refrigerator. you will probably have to take the back off to see. be sure you put the back of the refrigerator back when you are through.

Refrigerator about 5 years old. stopped dispensing water twice in last 12 months. Ice and crushed ice works perfectly. No water for last 2 months. Whats up?


You have two points where you can check the dispenser water. At the rear where the water supply comes in is the water inlet valve. If you disconnect the dispenser water line and then see if the water comes out when you try the dispenser. You should hear the valve work when you try the dispenser. If you don’t hear it there is a dispenser actuator switch problem. If you do hear it but water doesn’t work here there is a valve or water supply problem. If it's normal, disconnect it at the bottom of the freezer door and try again.If it's normal here it may be frozen in the door. If this is the case open the door till it thaws. A blanket over the opening will prevent thawing of all the food.

Hello, If you can see the water line inside the freezer case you might try using a hair blow dryer to try to thaw it out to get water flowing again? Good Luck! Dr. Know
