SOURCE: No water or ice through door

sounds like the dispenser assembly is not sensing that the trap door is opening fully, so it wont send power to the auger motor or fill valve. If you are pretty handy, you can disassemble the door and take out the dispenser assembly and try to take the assembly apart and correct the throw on the trap door. Otherwise, I'm afraid you need a new dispenser to the tune of about $250 parts and $225 trip and labor. Good luck!

SOURCE: Amana SBS Water and Ice maker issues

The water solenoid on the back of the refrigerator at the bottom is becoming clogged. There is only a very small hole in the diaphram of the valve. I suspect you have very hard water, or at least a fair amount of sediment in the water.
This valve will most likely need to be replaced by a qualified technician.
They sometimes can be cleaned, but it doesn't always work.

My ice and water in the door no longer work on my side by side Sub Zero. I can only get the ice from bulk ice inside the fridge.

SOURCE: no water from water dispenser

I have a GE GSH22JFTA side by side and my water dispenser just stopped working after about a year. The selenoid for the pump is buzzing, and when I disconenct the water line at the bottom on the freezer door, it water dispenses fine. the water is freezing IN the freezer door. I got some plastic sheathing and duct tape and opened my freezer door and sealed the freezer compartment so the food would not defrost and left door open to thaw out. in about 2 hours, voila.. my dispenser was working again. I suspect I'm not the only one with this issue.

Water leaks out of the dispenser


Hi

Under some circumstances the water dispenser can leak water into the spill trap when not in use. This problem could be caused by one of several scenarios involving the installation of the refrigerator doors. Small leaks are often triggered when a new water filter is installed. The exact location of some parts will vary depending on your model of refrigerator.

Keep a glass under the dispenser for up to three seconds after releasing the lever. The water doesn't cut off immediately, and there may be a few remaining drops in the system. This is normal and doesn't need any further attention.Run the water dispenser into a large container for three minutes. Empty the contents of the container down the sink. A newly installed water filter may spurt or leak water from the dispenser until the water is run for a few minutes. Some dispensers may cut off after a few minutes automatically.

Run the dispenser intermittently -- five seconds on, five seconds off -- for two minutes. This measure clears air trapped in the supply line, filter and dispenser system. Some dispensers will spurt or leak water until all air is purged from the system. You should follow this step each time the water is disconnected or the filter changed.Ensure all components of the water supply have been properly connected. All connections should be tightly screwed in place and pipes straight so water doesn't leak out of the pipes or dispenser nozzle. Contact a technician if you didn't install the refrigerator yourself.

The water dispenser is leaking


Is it a side by side? Did you change the filter recently? If so, Could be air bubble in water tank.

The inside water spout on this refrigerator stopped dispensing water


Checckwater pressure.The 1/4" water supply line should deliver at least 9 ounces of water in 5 seconds. If not, the water pressure is low. Make sure the dispenser is notlocked. Some models have a lock feature that deactivates the dispenser andcontrol buttons. The lock button is located on the dispenser front cover.This feature controls unintentional dispensing. Press the"Unlock" or "Locked" button to reactivate the dispenser andallow dispenser function. You may need to hold the button for2 to 3 seconds. A clogged or incorrectly installedwater filter will reduce the water flow to the water dispenser. Check for aproblem with the filter by removing the filter and operating the dispenser. Ifwater begins to flow, then the filter is either clogged or incorrectlyinstalled. A clogged filter will need to be replaced. Thanks.

Water dispenser drips after filling glass.


sounmds like you have air trapped in tothe line( formiong pressure behind the line whe nnot in use forcing water drops out, remove the crisper in the refrig campartmant and look for the holding tank either there an air bubble trapped in ther or you havea small leak allowing air inot the system, usually happen right after replacing the filter, instraed of trying to rnn 5 secs on 5 secs off, try with a bigger contaienr to allow constantly running for longer periods of time to hopefully force out the air bubble
