SOURCE: water dispenser keeps dispensing water when not pressed

If you can pull on the lever to make water flow stop, chances are there is a mineral buildup inside the valve, or the seat in the valve has failed. Either way, the valve normally needs to be replaced as they are not usually serviceable. Leave the Model number of the refrigerator so that I can check what to replace.

I have a Jennair fridge with internal water dispenser. I replaced the solenoid and yet the dispenser water keeps running even when no power I can hear solenoid working when water button pushed. Jim K


First, I'm not a Jennair Tech. But I've had done this in other equipment (Hey, I'm Human too. ;-)
* check the solenoid. It's backwards. The inflow is connected to the outflow port. This type of solenoid valve needs pressure to seal the valve shut (usually the water pressure is 75-110 PSI) so if there is water coming out all the time then the pressure is pushing up and opening the valve instead of closing it. Go ahead, check and switch it around. "Mums the word"

Why is water not heating in cycle?


Hello Kevin, thank you for your post!
From my understanding your Electrolux dishwasher is not fully dissolving the detergent tablet. It may not be an issue with the water heating up it could be a possible problem with the water not receiving adequate pressure or not enough water. Does your dispenser have any build up inside of it? Have your spray arms been recently cleaned? I would recommend cleaning the dispenser and spray arms out. I can also provide you with information regarding any heater inside of your dishwasher. In order to do so I need your model number. You can locate your model number on the inside wall of your dishwasher. With this information I would be happy to assist you further. -Matt

No ice or water coming out


Assuming the water is turned on and ice available to dispense, look for the lock on the dispenser. Most units have a lock to keep small people from playing with the water dispenser. Almost all units do not have a drain on the dispenser and by placing the unit in lock out, keeps the water from overflowing and damaging the floor. On most unit, find the lock and hold 5 to 10 seconds and then try the dispenser again.
If it is not locked out, your control card may have had damage done to it and the control card will probably need changing out. If your system is under warranty, call the 800 number and pay the small service fee and the technician can get the parts under warranty and sometimes the warranty also covers the labor. The technician will have to file a claim to the warranty department.
If you do not have water or ice, your problem is either the supply water has been shut off or your solenoid operated dual water vavle is malfuctioning and needs to be replaced. These dual water valve do have an upstream strainer that can get clogged and needs to be flushed or replaced. The strainer is part of the solenoid operated dual water valve.
Hope this helps.

Kenmore side by side refrigerator water dispensor will not shut off


Your water control valve is defective and will need to be replaced. Even though you hear the electrical part of the valve turn off the mechanical part of the control valve is stuck open causing water to continue to flow. What is your model number? Kenmore model numbers look like this example=> 312.234567 If you can find your model number I will show you the replacement part number, Thanks Sea Breeze

Frigidaire dishwasher won't spray


Hello - Are you referring to the spray arms will not rotate? If so, do you noticed if the spray arm is cracked or broken? Will it rotate slowly? If so, you might have to remove and replace the spray arm assemblies. I will suggest verifying that there is enough water pressure coming into the unit. If any proves to be ineffective, it could possibly have a communication problem coming from the main control board or wiring connections to the dispenser, I would suggest contacting a professional technician to diagnose the unit accurately.

Electrolux fridge water dispenser won't shut off



Then I would assume that the micro switch that you press for water is defective and sticking. I am placing a=> 242100001 Dispenser Module to give you an idea to what I am talking about but if you have a model number for your Electrolux refrigerator I may could find a micro-switch that is replaceable, Thanks Sea Breeze

Frigidaire side by side won't make ice but water comes from the dispenser


you either have a bad water valve,bad ice maker,also when was the last time you changed the filter?if it has a whirlpool ice maker you can pop off the cover on the ice maker,jump out the ice maker by sticking a jumper wire into the t and h,let it run for 15 to 20 seconds and pull the wire out,the ice maker should keep spinning,if it does go all the way around the water should come in when the white arms are at 11 oclock,if the water doesn't fill into the ice maker you can jump out the water valve from the ice maker,it says to jump it out from v to n but i jump it from v to L,if it fills with water the ice maker is bad,no water the valve is bad.you have a double valve,one for the dispenser and one for the ice maker but if one fails you have to change out the valve and it comes with both.next time send the full model number off of the machine and i can look it up and see what valve and ice maker is on your machine,when you find out what the problem is,call your parts store,give them the model number and they'll sell you the correct part.http://fixitnow.com/wp/2010/09/05/whirlpool-built-modular-icemaker-wiring-diagram-and-test-points/ copy and paste and it will show you how to jump out the ice maker.

Ice maker not working


Hello,

There is a tub that goes through the back of the freezer wall into the ice maker. Sometimes this tube will freeze shut and needs to be thawed out.

The water fill tube will freeze shut from low water pressure. Ether from a bad water valve or low pressure to the refrigerator itself.

Pull the refrigerator out and remove the tube from the back wall to check it.

Also note that,

Sounds like the thermistor is bad in the ice maker itself, and there are 3 more micro switches, and some other things in there too, just easier too replace ice maker than parts for it.

If it turns out to be the ice maker, look on the tag in the ref. side, which list the model number and serial number. look @ bottom of that tag, it will give you a model number for the ice maker kit you need.

Good luck and hope this helpout......

Ice & water dispenser get stuck, water & is keep coming out os dispenser even after you remove glass


Unplug unit
Remover dispensor housing. Careful not to break tabs.
You will see the white plastic actuator arm.
Follow the arm to where it becomes part of the main support.
Push the arm you will see where the main support is catching on a plastic *** on the rear housing.
Cut or file off part of the ***. so it wont catch.
Reassemble dispensor.
