Doed the filter have to be in place for water to be dispensed? Would replacing the filter be the first step in trying to diagnose why water will not come out anymore?


When you push the lever listen carefully for a click or buzz. If you hear this then the water valve is kicking on. If you don't then it may be a bad switch in the water lever area or a bad water valve. If you do hear that sound it could very well be a blocked filter. Usually a filter will slowly cut the water flow down to a trickle. Try taking the filter out and shake the water out of it and reinstall it. Sometimes this will allow some water to flow through it and this will let you know if you need a new filter.

Water does not flow


Sounds like air in the line.....the filter may be cracked/damaged, or not quite seated...?

since you've tried 2 new ones....I'm gonna bet they are not quite the correct ones for your fridge.

2006 Pacifica 3.5L I have a small coolant leak on the passenger side. The coolant will trickle down and drip from oil pan. The puddle is only 2 inches wide. I did a pressure test at 17PSI and I lost 2PSI...


It is a possibility that the leak may come from bad seals from the water pump or a bad water pump. If you also observe bubble in the coolant inside the radiator when the car is running or water coming out of the exhaust you may have a bad head gasket. The coolant comes out of the bad part of the head gasket near the outside which lets water outside the engine as well.

GE smartwater filter (model GXRLQR) stopped working...help!


These replacement filters (GXRLQR) are FLAWED straight out of the factory. The problem is in the 2 little "teeth" nubs that stick up near the center circle of the filter. When the filter is twisted and inserted, these teeth push up on a tiny black spring loaded valve in the body of the filter, alowing water to pass through up and out the spigot. The flaw is that the "nubs" are too short and do not push open the spring valve far enough, reducing flow to a semi-trickle, even with a brand new filter. GE seems to think this is not a problem.

Solution=stick a $0.25 garden hose rubber washer in the top of the filter and screw it in. You may have to try a few times to get it to work and seat properly. When it works, you'll immediately get a nice super flow of water. Better than upgrading to a $200 filter system recommended by GE...

I have a Jenn Air, french door style, bottom freezer. with the water dispenser on the inside left jamb of the box. there is also a ice maker. for the first 9 months every thing worked very well. then...


You have another plugged filter. That is why you ice cubes are hollow, the water is flowing so slowly into the ice maker, it does not fill up.

Recommend you install an external filter somewhere in the feeder line that connects to the rear of the refrigerator. The are surprisingly inexpensive, compared to the filter inside the new 'fridges. I recommend you buy a replacement external filter cartridge at the same time you buy the external filter kit. Of course you will need to change the internal filter one more time or bypass it per any instructions provided with your fridge.

Water trickles slowly into the machine.


Turn off the water.

Switch on the machine and let it try to start filling, that will take the mains pressure off the hose, switch off the machine

Take off the hose at the washer end and check to see how much dirt there is in the small filter inside the inlet solenoid

Most of them pull out for cleaning , be gentle they are nearly all made of plastc and can crack

Water dispenser is just a trickle


the biggest culprit for slow water dispensing aside from the filter is the water supply its self. check to make sure the water line isnt kinked behind the refrig, if thats ok then disconnect the water line from the refrig and run water into a bucket and observe your water flow. good water pressure would basicly fill a 2 gallon bucket in less than a minute. much less than that can cause problems. hope that helps peyton

Monogram water flow problem


common low flow is a kinked line or a bad water valve, the solioid valve has a filter that may be dirty. then go from there

Mullion heater connection for Amana 84" Integrated bottom mount refer model B136CAR3 mfg P1318402W. I need to hook up the mullion heater that is under the freezer, component P/N 12401301. But I cannot find the mullion heater connection point. According to the specs it's installed in the foam and not wired from the factory and is for service purposes. The reason for this is that the water from the defrost cycle re-freezes and clogs the drain hole. Eventually the ice gets almost an inch thick and it's SOLID. The freezer drawer cannot open, so I have to thaw it all out and pry it open. I've done this dozens of times over the years! The service tech never figured it out. But with help of my boat-refer-expert brother we found the solution at the high level. Devil is in the details. According to the instructions: make a slit and peel back the white vinyl harness sleeve that goes to the water valve, pull out two wires (black and white) that aren't connected to anything (yet). Then "locate the mullion heater leads at the left side of the cabinet and connect to the back and white leads". Then Wrap vinyl sleeve with electrical tape to seal the slit. OOOOOKAY.... I found the unconnected leads in the harness that goes to the ice maker water valve. They have male bullet style plugs and clips (a little corroded) but I cannot find anywhere to connect them... Is left side of the cabinet as viewed from the front or back? The main harness is on the left rear area. And if I make the slit long enough (which is very difficult, then the wires could make it back there. If I only could find where the mullion heater's connectors come out. Of course the wiring diagram only shows the mullion wiring as optional and not connected to anything. I really do not want to lay this 500lb (at least) beast on it's side. It already fell on me and my daughter, but a countertop and pallets save us. This refer has been nothing but a pain to deal with ever since I bought in 2001. I don't want to get rid of it, since it has custom wood panels that go with our kitchen, and I fell on hard times (due to illness) and cannot afford a new one. It fixed many things on it already. Such as the problem where the relays weren't soldered properly onto the main logic board, which fixed the non-defrosting problem and the freezer fan not working. But now the drain hole plugs with ice. So I read that many freezers have a 5W to 20W heater that runs all the time to keep the hole from freezing. Especially if water gets in the insulation under the floor of the freezer. Anyway, can anyone tell me how to find the connections to the mullion heater? Is it in the outside-rear channel up back of the refer? it's pop-riveted on. Thanks! Scott
