    The water dispenser will not work. I have replaced the filter less than a week ago. This has happened more than once.

Dadcanfix. There are two possibilities here. One could be the water valve itself, clogged or not seating or opening properly. The second would be the water tank on the refrigerator side, partially frozen. I believe they have a kit now with coiled tubing that replaces that tank because of the trouble they had with it. Remove the refer drawers and take a hair dryer and go over the tank lightly. See if that improves the water flow. Catriver..post back.

Ice make hose keeps poping off


The reason your fill tube to the ice maker is freezing up time and time again is simply the valve, or valves (water valves) that dispense water to the door and ice maker. It most likely always is the ice maker side because it is always harvesting ice and it gets used the most. The only way to stop this is to replace the water valves almost always located in the rear of the Refrigerator with the supply line coming off the wall the valves with one or two electric plugs that energize the solenoid type valve when unit calls for water. Tired of getting out the hair dryer and melting the ice that plugs up the fill tube? This is the only solution. Some of the time is because lime, or other deposits in the water will not allow the plunger to rest in the complete closed position. When the valve is energized for the amount of time needed it lifts the plunger allowing water to flow through. Then when it goes back down
to the closed position it has a small gap that causes water to seep through. There you have it! It's fixed! Unplug unit before replacing valves.If you have a double valve system make sure your lines go back to the original spot. Some of them have a 1/4" line with plastic compression fitting for the ice maker and a 3/8" for the water at the door. Some have both 1/4" compression fittings coming out like "Amana" so once again, make sure to get all lines back to the same position.

I've just replaced the water filter and the flow rate on the water dispenser is as slow as it was before. I ran the dispenser to remove the air from the system so I know that is not the problem. The flow...


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. Most water flow problems that are common to both the ice maker and water dispenser are either a supply volume or filter problem. Since you already have replaced the filter that points directly to a supply volume problem. Water connections for refrigerators are often connected by using a saddle valve on the side of a water pipe. The saddle valves have a rubber gasket that is clamped to the side of the pipe to prevent leakage. The gasket over time can swell due to being clamped or plumbing debris can block the small hole that ports water to the refrigerator water supply.

Here is what I recommend. Disconnect the water line where it connects to the back of your unit. If you have the press in type connection (no visible fittings) at the water inlet valve I recommend you get a brass compression coupling and cut the plastic line vs pulling the plastic line out of the water valve. Install the coupling on the plastic line so you will have a connection to check the flow rate.
The incoming flow rate should be the same as the water dispenser flow rate. If the incoming flow rate is faster then the problem is with the refrigerator internal plastic tubing. Most of the time when this discrepancy appears it will be in the door hinge area that the tubing is flattened causing a restriction in water flow. Since you are having both ice maker and water dispenser problems... your problem most likely is strictly water supply line related. Correct the water supply problem.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Kelly

Frigidaire side by side ice maker, water and ice dispencer inop


It would depend on the age of the refrigerator whether repair is economical. If the refrigerator is under ten years old repair it. If it is over ten years old you have to consider how much life is remaining for the refrigerator. Burnt smell source must be located because that is the key to your problem. It could be a simple matter of replacing the switch in the door.
