Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

Does not dispense water or ice.

The icemaker still makes ice but no water or ice is dispensed out of the door dispenser. When you try to dispense ice or water the indicator beacon/light goes out. If I fiddle with the wire and plug below the freezer door the beacon light fluctuates. The fridge is just over a year old.
I understand that the wiring harness can not be changed (if that is the problem.

Hello,

Does water dispense through the dispenser ok in the door dispenser??

If yes wate r dispenses through the door ok the problem is going to be with the icemaker itself and its not sending power to the water valve when its supposed to fill so it could make the ice

If water doesnt dispense through the door check that water pressure into valve is sufficent..even if water does dispense what seems to be ok check first that thier is good water pressure into the valve before replacing icemaker

I have a GE Profile refrigerator, Model PFSS6PKWBSS, with icemaker on door. Water is collecting under Deli-draw and leaking down freezer door onto floor. How do I fix leak?


Hi

Try and access the ice dispenser assembly and check from where the water is leaking. You would need to disassemble the ice dispenser and ice maker to check this. The ice dispenser is located in the upper portion of the freezer compartment. This assembly stores ice made by the icemaker and dispenses ice on demand from the door dispenser target switch.
1. Remove the upper ice bucket tray.
2. Slide out the ice dispenser assembly.
3. Remove the ice cube solenoid linkage Phillips head screw and slide the linkage back.
4. Remove the ice crusher cover Phillips head screws (2) and remove the cover.
5. With a pair of pliers, twist off the backing plate tabs located on either side of the crusher.
6. With 2 small flat-blade screwdrivers, unlock the ice crusher locking tabs located at either side of the ice crusher.
7. Lift the ice crusher out of the bucket.
8. Remove the ice crusher back cover.
9. Remove the locking ring from the ice crusher auger.
10. Remove the plastic nut with a pair of pliers by turning it clockwise.
11. Remove the spacers and blades. The blades are numbered for reassembly.

Icemaker--
The icemaker is located in the upper rear of the freezer compartment and supplies ice to the dispenser tub.
1. Disconnect the icemaker cable connector.
2. Remove 1/4-in. icemaker mounting screws and slide out the icemaker.
This refrigerator is equipped with an Electronic Icemaker.

Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Water dispenser does not work, ice maker does work. This is a used Whirlpool side by side. I hooked up the water yesterday and the water dispenser worked. Overnight, something went awry and I do not get...


Icemaker is in line with the water and runs from the icemaker threw the door and up to the water valve. So that is why the ice maker is working and the water is not working, most likely the water has frozen inside, And this can be caused by many different reasons, if it has been humid or the door was left open then shut it would cause the moisture in the air to be drawn to the warm water and flash frosted the pipe, try to see if you can defrost the line with a hair dryer. If that does not work post here and I will tell you the next step to try.

Icemaker not working, but water dispenser is


Water valve has separate coils for water to door and to icemaker. If icemaker is cycling the valve is likely the problem.

I had a Whirlpool Model GD5SHAXNS in which the icemaker quit working about the same time (3 years old).

I have been told his is a common problem with the icemaker in this model ref.

Icemaker works fine, only dispenses water


make sure that the ice shoot is not clogged up with ice or the in the ice basket where the ice goes through. Sometimes the ice can be stuck together and jam and nothing will come out.

Ice maker not working


The icemakers won't make ice if the temperature is not below a certain set point. Varies between manufacturers. Try making the temp colder.

Icemaker will not was dispense ice


My icemaker stopped producing ice. We turned off the water line to it when we went on vacation for a week. We turned the water back on when we got home and since that time it won't produce ice. We can still get water from the door dispenser though.
