No water at the door

The water in the door stopped working. I seem to recall a switching noise from the rear of the unit when it use to dispense water, but now it doesn't do anything when the lever is pressed, only the light comes on. The ice dispensor works but not the water. What do I need to do? Thanks

    The water solenoid in the rear allows water to be discharged when the door lever is pressed and the hose is disconnected from solenoid. However, there is no water at the door once hose is connected. Evidently there is a blockage in the line between the door and the solenoid. Where would it most likely be? Thanks, Ben

    Had the same problem--door was then left open accidentally and water was fixed. Now, 3 months later, same problem. Will try and leave it open and see what happens.

    The water does not come anymore from water dispenser. The ice dispenser works. I tried fixing this by removing the ice and then setting the temperature to zero. The water dispenser then worked. But after using for almost 6 months or so, the water dispenser is not working again. What could be the cause to this? I will again try setting the temperature to zero and see.

If the solenoid valve doesn't click anymore then it's either bad or not activating anymore. Check that the switch behind the water lever is not broken or has fallen loose inside the door panel. You may be able to put a finger up there and try to push it without using just the lever. (sometimes slamming glasses into that lever over time breaks the switch attaching pins causing the switch to fall off inside). Take the front panel off and visually check that switch itself to see if it is still being held in place. Activate it by hand (not the lever method) and see if that water solenoid valve clicks again and water flows. If you have no water to both the Ice Maker and door dispensor at all (clogged filter?) check the main water line for clogs/debris, etc. If you are making ice still then water is at least getting to the ice maker and that means only the door water valve or switch is bad. The link below may help you "see" inside with the different diagrams, etc. http://www.partselect.com/MultiModels.aspx?ModelNum=GSL25JFP&searchTerm=&RefineSearch=0

    The blockage is usually near the 90 degree bend just before the dispensor due to frozen line. A quick check is to leave the door open for a few hours to thaw the "possible" frozen line. If it works after a few hours of thawing then you know the line was frozen inside the door.

Water Dispenser on GE Profile Bottom Freezer Refrigerator Not Working


When you press the water dispenser button, do you hear a noise like water is trying to come as usual. If so then your problem might be frozen chill water tank or failed chill water valve. If you don't hear the regular noise then the problem might be with the dispenser unit.

Cool water switch seems to be faulty, no water but ice maker seems to be working how do I get access to switch?


Your water line could be frozen in the door. You can disconnect the line under the unit before it goes into the door at the bottom hinge. Push the dispenser button and see if it comes out there. If it does leave the door open till it thaws. Covering the opening with a blanket will prevent the loss of cold in the freezer. . GE makes a heater that will prevent this from happening again. The part number for this heater is WR49X10173.

disconnect the line to the water dispenser at the water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in and try the dispenser. if you hear the valve work but water doesn't come out, the valve is bad. If you don't hear the valve, the dispenser switch is bad

My whirlpool suddenly stopped dispensing water.


most fridges stop dispensing water when you open the door. Find the door switch and make sure fridge interior light goes on/off when you manually press door switch. This would show you that the door switch was faulty.

If the water connection to the appliance is one of those watts flood-safe water lines, it may have stuck shut. I've seen this happen when the house water pressure is too high.

Does it still make ice?

If so, then the water connection is good, and either the switch in the water dispenser has failed or the water shutoff valve for the water dispenser has gone bad.

Some models have a problem with the water line getting frozen, such that simply leaving the light on in the water dispenser compartment overnight and/or manually defrosting the unit can get it working again.

The water dispenser on my beko ap930 has stopped working can anyone offer any help,the piping all seems to be ok,could it be the valve ?


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. If it's not and you can hear to valve click, there is a valve our water supply problem. If you don't hear the click, it's a dispenser switch problem. If it's normal, disconnect it at the bottom of the freezer door and try again. It 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.

Ice and water dispenser stopped working


Welcome to the computer world. When depressed, the paddle actuates a switch attached to the bracket above. The switch sends a low voltage signal to a small circuit board mouted right behind the display. A computer chip on that small board communicates with another chip on the main control board mounted in the rear wall. Your situation could be a bad actuator switch, a broken paddle tab, possibly a bad door switch (the fresh food doors must be closed to dispense), or a bad electronic control.

Kenmore Refrigerator stopped dispensing water


Either your water tank in the fridge froze up, the waterline that goes up the freezer door from the bottom hinge froze, or the switch that your glass hits is damaged. Do you hear any humming or noises when you put your glass up to get water?

Water/Ice Dispenser is not working


Some models need the filter inplace to pass water. First check it again with a new filter in just to be sure the filter isn't clogged. Next... do you hear any click or such noise from the rear of the unit when you push the water dispenser? The solenoid valves may be bad. Also check the valves at the back of the frige to see if the filter screen isn't clogged blocking water from getting into the frige all together. Let us know what you find and post again.
