Water dispensor quit working

Ice maker still works, have replaced the water inlet and the water filter. I know I am getting water to the bottom of the freezer door , there is a coupling there and when I disconnect it there is water there, but between there and the dispensor something is not working. I checked the door switch and got continuity and the light comes on and off.

The water line that runs from the bottom of the freezer door up to the water dispenser is probably frozen. I have run across this problem several times. you can take the line out of the freezer door, thaw it out and re-insert it, but chances are it will happen again. usually when you have that issue, there is a problem with the insulation in the freezer door and you will need to have the whole freezer door replaced.

No water in water dispensor


Don't forget that your dual water control valve has two sides. One side is for the ice maker and other side is for water dispenser. The water dispenser side may have recently failed causing water to not enter water filter area or dispenser, Thanks Sea Breeze

Hello. My side by side refrigerator model MSD2434GE, serial no 11874215CG , I can not get water from the water dispensor, I ice dispensor works fine, I have tried pressing the lock three times but still...


There is valve at the back of the ice maker unit.This valve is the one unit with twin inlet.From one inlet the water enters the ice maker and from other inlet the water enters the water dispenser.so in that valve the ice maker side is working but water dispenser side is not working.Or the ice is got clogged/ over frosted in the water dispenser entering pipe.either the valve needs top be replaced or the water dispenser pipe needs to be checked.Calling service person is advisable.He will just check and confirm what is the issue, the water valve or the over frost build up in the water dispenser tube.and do as required to solve the issue/.If case if the water valve needs to be replaced then cost of water valve is approx $40.------------- this will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

The ice maker stopped making ice. Any solutions?


A lot of filters ( not all ) do not even access the ice maker . Only the water dispensor . If your water dispensor is working fine , then you need to replace the dual water inlet valve behind the refrig . This is the piece the wall water line connects to . It is called a dual valve because there are 2 coils on the valve . 1 for the ice maker and 1 for the water dispensor .

Frigidaire Model # GLRS267dzw2 ice maker isn't filling up with water too make ice.


As every technician knows , a water and ice dispensor refrig , has a dual water inlet valve . Just because the water dispensor works , does not mean the coil for the ice maker is working . Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If it dumps the frozen cubes , but does not refil with water , check the fill tube inside the freezer , from the wall to the fill cup on the ice maker , to see if it is frozen . If so , replace the dual water inlet valve , due to seeping . This is not closing completely , and letting drips thru , which freeze inside the tube . If the tube is not frozen , then the water inlet valve is bad , not letting water thru to the ice maker .
If the ice maker does not dump the frozen cubes , then the ice maker needs to be replaced . Also check the coils under the refrig , to be sure they are clean of dust , lint , etc , as this will raise the temp above 5 degrees , which is the operating temp , for an icemaker .

Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

The water dispensor and ice maker have no water pressure. There is plenty of pressure up to the filter but very little past the filter. The filter is new.

Water Dispensor and Ice Maker Not working


Make sure you have water coming to the water inlet valve and then check to make sure that your water filter is pushed all the way in. Next check your solenoids in the back of your fridge. With the power off take an ohm meter and test across the two terminals and it should not Ohm out or beep. If it does you need to replace the solenoids
