Suddenly no filtered water comes out, but there are gurgling sounds inside

About 1 week ago I changed the water filter. It worked fine for a while therafter, but all of a sudden when I push the filtered water button nothing comes out, but the sound of gurgling water can be heard from within the unit. What is this and will I be able to fix it myself? Is water leaking somewhere?

I guess make sure the filter didn't unseat itself first, also check the O-rings, etc. to make sure they didn't roll off their position on the filter. If that's all OK, you really need to find that gurgle sound cause that's likely the water you are missing going "somewhere" it's not supposed to go. Look all over for water leaks even if you have to pull the unit out from the wall... keep looking!

SOURCE: water despenser is apparently frozen

You may have two mutually exclusive probems... one being the water dispenser doesn't dispense water... As you stated, the obvious remedy would be to replace your filter to see if that is restricting water flow.. secondly, your vegetable crisper is freezing vegetables... chances are that the inlet between the freezer compartment and that vegetable darwer is near there and the damper needs to be closed a bit... See if you can locate the cold air inlet vent and partially close the damper ... Hope that helps...

SOURCE: Water suddenly stopped coming out of front water dispenser.

Three different causes. Your water reservoir in the refer section is behind your crispers, this can freeze up if you have adjusted your temperatures in your refrigerator or if you have a thermostat or damper problem. Adjust your refer thermostat to a warmer setting and wait a couple of days to see if it works. 2: Bad water valve, easy to test with an electrical tester. Remove your backing plate behind the refer. Loosen your water line to the valve to make sure you have water pressure. Tighten water line. Remove screw holding valve to cabinent. Test for 120 volts at the two wires that go to your water valve solenoid,(if there are two solenoids then trace the water line to your reservoir, the solenoid above this connection is the one to test). Someone had to press the water dispenser while you are testing voltage. I usually disconnect the water line going to the reservoir to see if water comes out when the switch is pressed. If no water but you have 120 volts then replace the valve. 3: Bad dispenser switch or wiring. This is a lot more complicated to test. Some dispenser assemblies are incredibly complicated and difficult to get into to test. I usually recommend you call a technician if you have reached this point. Good Luckd, Appliance Specialists

Water flow is extremely slow after filter change.

Those filters are for refrigerators that have heavily treated water in the household. You could have a filter that filters your water supply and not use the filter inside the frig. Why use both? Now, if your home is not filtered, you may need it. Check to see if the water supply line is crimped somewhere or frozen when it gets inside the frig.

Water dispenser in my Maytag french door refer has suddenly stopped working. We use it every day and the filter seems to be fine. It almost sounds like it is frozen. Please Help!!!

We have a hd2560 (bot 10/04), french door with inside water dispenser and it had stopped working a year ago, but started working a few months later. I couldn't figure out what happened, but suspected the water line was frozen. I later found out that the water reservoir is located behind the fruit and vegetable bins, so look there to see if the water is frozen.

Two weeks ago, our frig/compressor stopped cooling after making humming/clicking sounds for weeks. Fortunately, Maytag has a 5 yr parts & labor warranty on the compressor, so we were covered. Evidently, there are quite a few faulty compressors out there.

I believe that the compressor had been over-cooling in the past and caused the water lines/tank to freeze. This would also cause frozen produce/fruit. I would immediately contact Maytag/Whirlpool if you suspect a faulty compressor as well.

Ice cubes coming out with silver (grey) paint specs on them

Do you know exactly what part he changed? It sounds as though it was some sort of water flow regulator, or valve. The service person should have flushed the system prior to installing the part, and replaced the filter.

Without knowing exactly what he changed, it's hard to tell.

Ive heard horror stories where the techs replace ice maker units, and accidentally put the OLD water source filter on backwards instead of replacing the filter, and all of the contaminants end up in the new unit, and in the ice / cold water.

Spraying GE Artica

Check to be sure the filter wasn't frozen. Temp should not be below 35. A plugged filter will not cause leaking. If water still leaks from above filter, you need to replace filter head.

GE Refigerator filter problem

First thing to try is to cut open one of the old filters (ideally straight down the middle)and see if you can tell what is blocking it. Wear gloves and keep away from the stuff inside in case there is a chemical component - it should say on the packet of the filter if this is the case. You could also install another, coarser and cheaper filter in the water hose just outside the fridge - you usually can get a housing with a hose fitting on each end and a filter inside at most hardware stores. If you turn off the water pressure, cut the hose to the washer half way from the wall, then you can install the new filter with a couple of hose-clamps(Jubilee-clips). These sort of primary filters will remove any sandy or silty material in the water (you might not notice it usually from the tap) and also there is the possibility of algae/weed growth that is clogging the filter. It also might be worth calling your local water supply authority/utility and discussing the problem with them - they may want to come and check, or ask you to send a sample in for analysis. Some of what they can do, you can achieve yourself by putting a closed container of the water somewhere where it can get no vibration and waiting a week or so to see how much solids settle out. A tall thin container works best, as long as you can keep it dead still. Just possibly the filters are a defective batch, and it is coincidence that you got more than one - perhaps you bought them from the same small store? Also possible is that there is something in the pipe near the filter that is disturbed when you change one for a few days, then settles back into place blocking the hose - check there is not a small piece of mesh inside the water inlet hose connection at the back of the fridge - sometimes there is and these strainers can get blocked by something that behaves erratically. Hope this helps - please post again if not :)
