Water dispenser wont work

Actually did some ripping and tearing, narrowed it down to something in the freezer door itself. Testing the majority of the system was easy - just remove the waterline coupler near the floor *below the freezer door. Water shoots out of side-A but is not making it 3ft up to the dispenser..........so the inside of the freezer door, remove the magnetic strip and what??? pry around the plastic and pop it off ???
Cannot see screws but believe this will get me back to where the problem is.........easier way or something I'm missing ley me know.

Samsung side by side ice maker not working


You have 2 separate valves, 1 for the water dispenser and 1 for the ice maker. (otherwise your ice maker would overflow every time you got water from the dispenser and your dispenser would flow every time the ice maker went to refill.) They are fed from the same tubing.

The cube/crushed ice motor is completely separate from the ice maker itself and should have absolutely no bearing on the water flow.

You have narrowed down the problem quite nicely to the ice maker water valve. There is one more thing to check though, the connector. There should be a multi-contact connector from the ice maker to the back wall of the freezer, usually 6-9 wires. Pull that apart and check the cord side (ice maker side) for any corrosion. BE CAREFUL NOT TO TOUCH THE OTHER SIDE AS THERE IS LIVE 110V!!! If you don't see any corrosion, still try try disconnecting and reconnecting 5-10 times and see if that solves your problem. If you see corrosion, unplug the refrigerator before working on the back wall part of the connector. [This connector besides powering the ice maker also allows the ice maker to control the water valve which can't be inside the freezer]

GE refrigerator GSL25JFTFBS water dispenser quit working, but ice dispenser still works?


We had a repair man today about exact model and problem. He said the hosed inside he freezer door was frozen. open freezer door and cover the opening with a blanket. Leave open long enough and the water will unthaw and start running again. He said the manufacturers do not pack the hoses in there , they use foam, it eventually gets old and can get shifted to far to the inside. It worked ! working fine now.

Drove car to work and went to leave car won't start, you can hear fuel pump run, replaced fule filter, will start with starter fluid but will not stay running..what do I look foro next ?


Check the vacuum lines on the fuel pressure regulator and check the regulator itself. Its a small round piece at the end of the fuel rail, theyre relatively cheap and easy to change. The rubber diaphragm inside the regulator corrodes and rips over time and the car will loose fuel pressure. You can have a garage run a check on the fuel system to narrow it down.

The regulator looks like this:

I have a side by side Kenmore refrigerator model #363-9562510. Water leaks from the bottom right corner of the freezer door from a small round cut out hole. This is the door that has the ice and water...


couple of things to check if you have a dispenser on this model there is a hose that goes up into the bottom of the freezer door you need to remove bottom kick plate and take a look at this...also if no water from that hose and its actually coming from the door you could have a ruptured line in the door itself.... next make sure the water is not actually coming from the freezer compartment as the drain in the freezer could be clooged and leaking over on defrost mode and out door...
hope this helps good luck...

Why is there condensation on the bottom of my freezer door


Condensation that wasnt present previously usually indicates a warm air leak into the cabinet. Check the freezer door gasket at the bottom for any malformations, rips, tears or gaps between the gasket and the cabinet face.

I hear a popping/clicking type noise from the freezer and I don't think the fan is coming on. It doesn't have an ice maker. The contents are still frozen each day, but I notice a thin layer of frost on...


if temps are still good, with settings at normal, that popping noise you hear is likely the resulting temperature change when the defrost heater comes on. when its in defrost, you may hear the clicking of the defrost timer, which you wouldnt normally hear when the unit runs.
You say there is a thin layer of frost on certain items, where are these items located in your freezer? are they near the top, the bottom, the back, the front, combination thereof? Are you having any problems with the door not closing well? check your door gaskets, are there any tears, rips or gaps. if you place a dollar bill between gasket and frame, does the bill move, ON ITS OWN. Of course you will be able to move the bill, but if you close the door on the bill and it falls out or shifts position by itself, you have a seal problem. Do you have too much food inside the unit? If you only noticed the frost recently, perhaps you cleaned it out and something is obstructing door from closing completely, on its own. Or if you went shopping, perhaps you bought just a little too much food. check the bottom drawer if yours has one, is it pushed all the way in?

I have a hotpoint hss22gft that the refrigerator side will not stay cold. freezer side is 10 degrees. any suggestions


if you have an abundance of snow/frost on the back wall of your freezer, you have a defrost problem, heater, thermistor, defrost thermistat, or the main CPU could be the problem. If you have no abundance of frost on back wall of freezer, with freezer door open, "close" the door/light switch. Does your freezer fan run? if not, you have a faulty fan/possibly your main CPU as well. if you fan does run, then the damper door, which opens to let the air from the freezer into the fridge is not opening. close the freezer door, open the fresh food door, "close" the light switch on that side, and place your hand near the vent at the top left side of fresh food side. air flow? if no, bad damper door. if yes, check for any gaps in door seal, tears rips or malformations. if none of the above help, seek technical service

DOOR GASKETS RIP AND TEAR DOORS DO NOT CLOSE PROPERLY


There are six screws on the top of the refer; you need to loosen all six ( that are holding the doors in positon ) and allow the doors to hang sloopy. Since your getting new door gaskets, install them on the doors and position the doors squarely so they seal completely and snug up the screws. Do not get carried away with cranking down on the screws or you have a major problem. You need all six screws applying gentle pressure on the door and it will work fine. Keep the contact surfaces clean where the door seals touch the chassis. Sugar, ketchup (has sugar in it) and other foods and condiments some times get splashed on the "Seal Surfaces" and the seals stick to it and when you yank the door open, it could tear the seal.... Install it, recheck it, adjust it, and recheck it.... KEEP IT CLEAN... MAJOR ISSUE.. df8c2cb.gif
