Hi ggammon the dispenser is activated by the paddle that you place your glass against,then touching a micro switch .so i'd say you've got somthing amiss there and i would think only eyes on the ground can see what that is.i just said a prayer for you and you'll have to go back in there.in Gods service,tom

My water dispenser is INOP.when lever is pressed only a hum can be heard but no water. Removed water filter and water shoots out inlet. Attempted to blow on inlet portion on water filter and no air flowed...


The water line may be plugged or frozen.
Remove all the food and put in another freezer and shut the freezer off for 24 hrs and see if it works then. Is there ice cubes stuck in the despenser ? If so clear them out. May be the jammed ice cube my not let any water through.

WHY DOES ICE MAKER NOT HAVE WATER, BUT WATER DISPENSER HAS WATER?


Good Morning Friend, thank you for your post!

From what you have described it sounds like your ice maker is not making ice but your dispenser is dispensing water. If your ice maker has stopped producing ice completely, here are a few simple troubleshooting tips that may help you resolve your issue:

    1.It may be turned off. Look for the wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If the wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. If so, try one of these: If your ice maker has a small red plastic lever, lower it to lower the wire. If there's no plastic lever, simply lower the wire. In either case, the ice maker should begin producing ice again.
    2.Also make sure that the temperature is 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If your freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly.
    3.When was the last time the filter was changed? Most filters are recommended to be change approximately every 6-9 months depending on your water usage and frequency.
    4. The ice maker fill tube may be blocked with ice or have a clogged water filter. If so, melt the blockage using a hair dryer-but be careful to not melt any plastic parts!
    5.Also the water shut-off valve or water-inlet valve, or both, may need replacing if necessary. The ice maker head assembly may have broken parts. Look to see if the gears are broken. Check to see if the small plastic arms that rest against the ice rake are broken. If the ice maker head assembly is modular and you've found broken parts, then more than likely it will need to be replaced.

    Hope this helps! - Z

Samsung rf4287hars ice dispenser doesn't work


The whole unit must be removed and unplugged. There is a screw in the bottom near the dispenser opening. Remove this screwn and then take a butter knife and start prying the unit outword.

The lever that operates the microswitch may be broken and was on mine. This part is cheap plastic and breaks when over entended in the least. If the actuation lever is broken, you will NOT feel any resistance when pressing the Ice despenser and will push on through to dispense water. Problem is there is NO fix for this except replacement and Samsung will not pay for it.

I fashioned a piece of bailing wire in place of the lever that will act the same and have a little spring incase someone presses to hard with their cup/glass. Yes... its bailing wire and works great. You must drill through the middle of the broken support, fashion the wire, coat with super glue and put in position pretty quick. 43e0da13-0ab4-425d-8cad-f17e16cccb58.jpg

If you find a small plastic piece on the floor and your ice maker stops dispensing.... I think I know your problem.

Ice and water stopped dispensing


some models of this refrig have a lcok out feature on the dispenser look for a padlock symbol on the dispenser console and make sure its unlocked. if it s not locked out you may have a broken switch bracket behind the console cover. when you press the levers listen very closely and you should hear a click noise letting you know the dispenser switch has activated. Let me know if you have any further questions thanks Peyton

Kenmore elite (106.53606202) ice maker will not dispense ice


When you push the ice dispensing lever, you should be able to hear the micro-switch clicking. If no click, the switch is faulty. The auger motor which is activated by the lever could also be faulty. This is the motor that causes the auger in the ice bucket to rotate one way for crushed ice and the other way for cubes. The auger could also be jammed. Try switching between crushed and cubes to unjam the auger. Empty the ice bucket and start again.
