Re: water dispenser is extremely S L O W

On the bottom of the freezer door you will find a clear hose. Follow the hose and you wil find a connector. Disconnect it and place on small pan. Activate the water switch on door and see if water comes out. The problem is on the line going from bottom of freezer door up to dispenser. Some models water line is close to extruded door(miss manufacturing) cover and the line freezes over. This is a manufacturing fault from GE and unfortunatelly the whole door must be replaced

Check no ice build up in bottle but the most likely cause is poor water pressure on the inlet. no cure except to improve water pressure. if there is a valve in the input water line, check it is fully open

Water dispenser not working

Have you changed the water filter? they can plug up over time. The water tube can freeze in the door. To test this there usually is a disconnect under the freezer door side of the grill you can disconnect this and hit the water dispenser lever. If the door is getting water then it is frozen in the door. If not the water valve could be your problem there are two sides to the water valve one for the water dispenser and one for the icemaker. A last possibility is there is a water tank or tubing loop in the refrigerator behind the crisper this could have frozen.

Water dispenser not working ice maker okay water line to valves okay appears line in door frozen

GE has a fix for frozen water line in freezer door. WR49x10173 is a heater kit that is installed in the dispenser area. It uses a minor amount of energy, but enough to keep the area warm. You have to pull off the dispenser board, remove the 4 screws to remove the dispenser cradle and unplug the wiring. Then follow instructions to crimp on the heater wires. Allow about 3 days for frozen water line to defrost. .

I have a Frigidaire GHSC39EEPW1 side by side with ice and water dispenser in the door.It keeps dispensing water by itself.It even does it when locked.What could be the cause of it

Hi Steve Garner - There are a couple of factors that can cause a side by side dispenser to dispense water by itself. The refrigerator could possibly have a faulty valve, dispenser control board and/or failed water valve diode. Generally it is a good idea to have a professional take a look at it to get to the root cause. Cost of parts and technical expertise entailed in these types of replacements can be a bit tricky.

The water dispenser is extremely slow. It takes one minute to fill a 12 oz glass.

Check/Change water filter - even if new! Also check to make sure your water supply at the wall is turned all the way to the "on" postion.

The ice maker was turned off for a few weeks and when I turned it back on, the water wouldn't feed the tray. So no ice. I put some water into it manually and it made the ice dropped it into the bucket but...

Have you checked to see if the water inlet inside the freezer compartment at the ice maker is frozen? This is pretty common.

You can thaw it out with a hair dryer (carefully), then cycle the arm, wait for a little while and see if the ice tray fills.

Next thing to check would be the water line and fill valve, but try the above first.

Water dispenser suddenly not dispensing water

Remove the bottom kick plate . Follow the plastic line about 6" and you'll find a connector . Push in on one end of the connector and at the same time , pull the line out . Close the door and press for water . If no water comes out of the disconnented line , the water valve is probably bad . If water does come out , the line inside the freezer door is frozen . If this turns out to be so , you can lower the freezer temp for maybe days , or , put the food on the door, inside the freezer , tape the light switch down ( to keep the lite off and fan running ) and tape plastic over the freezer door opening so the freezer will continue to work . Reinstall the line back into the connector by pushing the hose firmly into place . Leave the freezer door open for maybe 1 or 2 days for thawing out , going by ocassionally and pressing the water dispensor . Important : lower the freezer temperature slightly to keep line from freezing again . ONLY CHANGE THE FILTER WHEN WATER FLOW SLOWS OR ICE CUBES GET SMALL . The change filter lite comes on by the amount of times water dispensor is used and to make money for the vendor .

The water dispenser is not working properly. There is water coming out, but at a reduced amount than before. The filter is new so it is not that. What could be the reason?

Put your old filter back on or the filter bypass piece that came with refrig .I have found several new filters which lowered the water output when installed . I would not replace the filter when the little lite says to . Only when the water flow rate decreases .

The water/ice dispenser will not dispense neither ice nor water..

There is a door switch that senses the door being closed for the dispenser to work. The water problem could be a plugged filter if you have one. Was the frig extremely cold recently? The water resevoir can freeze up. (its located behind the crispers) It could be the switches in the dispenser itself. Process of elimination will lead to the problem.

LG ice maker only making two ice cubes at a time

Colenoid in the ice dispenser may be clogged or have a small amount of trash in it. Is there a filter on before the fridge (just after the ice maker shutoff)?
