Water stream is down to a trickle

We've changed the filter and we've changed the electrical cylinoid, thinking that was the problem but it still just trickles.

Check to see if its filling propperly..

is the line filling it clogged or the cut off valve closed ??

its in the filling or the containment holder..

I'm betting its the plumbling leading to the collector (which holds the water) is messed up you need to check this out.

Do you have good water pressure coming out ot the tap? Have you looked UNDER the refrigerator to make sure the plastic line is not kinked ? what about where the water line goes through to the door?

    this is the only thing i can think of, is a kinked water line, since you have already changed the solenoid and the filter

The water dispenser is not working on my kenmore model #795.5132


This probably means you need to change your water filter. That would be your first step. It could be the water valve but I'd change filter first.

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.

Whirlpool ES5FHA refrigerator water dispenser is not working properly


Note: Always make sure your filter is current if you have one. Not doing so will cause water to not despence properly
Pull the machine out and remove the lower back cover. Locate the water valve. With the water turned on and connected remove the 5/16" water line (the bigger one) and then have someone else press the water in the door. If the cylinoid is operating correctly it should spray water out.If so, you just verified that the valve and electrical portions are working properly and either the filter is bad or the resevoir, , located inside the lower refrigerator side is frozen. If no water comes out but the valve vibrates, then the valve is bad. If no water and no vibration, continue reading.With the machine plugged in but the wires that go to the valve for the dispenser off take a volt meter and place a lead to each wire and have someone press the panel in the door as if getting water. The reading should go from 0 to around 115-120 a/c.If your not getting electricity down there at anytime than thje door switch is bad.
Testing the ice maker:
As far as the smaller line (1/4") you have to manually advance the ice maker and wait for it to call for water with the 1/4" line disconnected from the valve. You can do this by getting a jumper wire, removing the cover of icemaker, which you jsut grab and pull off, and using the jumper wire insert one end of the wire into the cirle marked m and the other in the cicle marked n. Leave there until you hear a click and sometimes see a little spark behind the modular head wheel. Also if you see ice in the maker that hasn't dumper and the teeth of the icemaker are facing any direction other than two o clock position, the icemaker is bad. Also check the fill tube to be sure the no ice is blocking water from coming in. Check at the bottom front grill for the filter.

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

We have a Frigidaire side by side with the in door ice and water system that utilizes the Pure Source 2 system. Dealer states that the filters whould last forever. After a short period, maybe 4 weeks or...


no water filter on a ref will last forever, the company that built the filter would have filled chapter 7 11 or something

but the filter my or my not be the issue

what is the size of the ice cubes that it is making
are the normal size with no hollow centers
if you use the water in the door does it start out at regular stream and then decrease as long as you are getting water

you have replaced the water valve, i dont think it is bad, keep it as a spare
i wo uld go to the line valve that the ref is connected to the house plumbing and if it is a saddle valve, remove it and check for an obstruction at the saddle valve, and while it is removed bore ou the hole into the pipe it is clamped to to 1/8 of an inch with a drill bit and you should be ok
