Water line supply is ok, so is switch on door and solenoid. line from solenoid to water dispenser at door seems to be an obstruction.

SOURCE: Water not getting to dispenser, but does get to ice maker.

Hi All,
The fix to the "GE/Hotpoint Secret" frozen water dispenser problem is the Dispenser Water Tube Heater Kit, P/N WR49X10173 that can be purchased at Sears. Just a few bucks. My Hotpoint (model HSM25GFRA5A) had the same issue and GE would not tell me anything but required a technician to come out. The technician had no clue but after making some calls found the heater at Sears and ordered it delivered to me. He had to setup a return appointment but I canceled it after getting the parts and fixing it myself. The instructions are in the kit. Since most all GE/Hotpoint refrigerators (same model group of course) use the same parts/assemblies this will work for lots of folks. See pic below. If the area behind the cover looks like this it may be the part. Feel free to email me for help on this (rkjobe@military.com). Piece of cake.

SOURCE: Water dispenser not working

2 things i want you to try before you call a tech out first under frezer door there is a connector where the 2 lines connect disconect both off now actuate the water at door if you get water out the line that means your line inside door is frozen 2 if you don't get water that means your water reservour is frozen so to solve problem cheapest way is to derost it by unpluging it for maybe 2 days and if it was frozen it should go back to normal and this time keep your temps in right settings refrigerator section at 37% and freezer from 0 to 4 % at all times that will keep lines from freezing

Order and install a WR49X10173 water tube heater. It may take 24 hours to then thaw, but it has worked for me on numerous refrigerators. Cost for the part will run about $50.

Hi i have a double door samsung fridge and when i place dispensable ice on cube i still get crushed ice in addition is there any way to increase the speed at which water comes out the dispenser


There is likely a faulty solenoid which switches the ice dispenser between "crush" and "cube" mode.

The water pressure at the water dispenser is proportional to the supply line water pressure. Unless there is a restriction in the supply line or the dispenser line, the only way to increase the water flow is to increase the supply line water pressure -- not an easy proposition.

More info, let me know.

My water will not come out of the water despenser


start by checking the solenoid that supplies the dispenser to see if it is burned out. It is usually located in the back lower part of frig where the water inlet line hooks to. There are usually 2 solenoids.... the ice maker and the dispenser. Unplug the frig before testing these. The resistance across the ice maker and dispenser are usually the same. If the dispenser solenoid is "open" on the ohm meter then the whole water supply valve needs replaced. Another problem with some units where the dispenser is on the FREEZER side...the lines behind the door will freeze.

Water & ice doesn't work on door


Check for a crushed or kinked water supply line if the fridge has been moved just prior to the problem. It could also be a switch or water supply solenoid at the back of the fridge. If you hear clicking when the ice maker is trying to fill or water is to be dispensed, the switch and solenoids are probably ok, but the water is off or blocked - have you changed the filter recently - it may be time!

Good luck!

What to do if water does not dispense from water dispenser


A couple of things to check: If equipped with an automatic ice maker - is ice being made? If so, the water supply to the fridge is OK. If not, look for a problem in the supply line (is it kinked, crushed, or is the water shut off)? Is the filter clogged? Some fridges will pass water w/o a filter installed - see if your will by removing the filter and try to get water from the fridge.

If ice is being made, the problem lies with the water "circuit" in the fridge (the solenoid, water lines, filter etc.). When water is dispensed from the fridge into a glass, a small solenoid valve on the drinking water line opens to allow water to flow. Many times, you can hear the "click" of the solenoid valve both when it is opening (on) and closing (off). If you used to hear it, and now no longer can, it indicates a problem with the electrical circuit that is activated when you try to dispense water. This electrical circuit consists of the switch, wiring and solenoid coil itself. The wiring will seldom fail - but those parts that physically move (the switch and solenoid) are very likely candidates for failure. You should obtain the schematics for your fridge and get a volt meter to troubleshoot the switch and solenoid. Of course, you could purchase both the switch and solenoid and replace them one at a time; and have a reasonable expectation that one will probably solve the problem.

Good luck!

I bought a used Jenn Air french door refrigerator model #JFC2089HES, but water will not dispense nor will it make ice. It's hooked up to a cold water supply under the sink which is working.


It sounds to me like you're going to have to do some serious electrical checking. There are two electrical solenoid water control valves right behind of the fiber cover where your water line connects to the refrigerator. One solenoid valve is for the water dispenser and the other is for the ice maker. They are mounted together, side by side, on the same metal mounting plate. You two sets of terminals on each solenoid. one set on each solenoid should be hot (register line voltage) when tested between the terminal and ground. the other set of terminals connect two the switches in the water dispenser and ice maker. If have someone push the dispenser switch while you have your ear close to the solenoids, you should hear a clicking sound. I have never seen both of the solenoid valves go bad at the same time. I believe you have a power supply problem to the solenoid assembly itself.

I have a Whirlpool Imerial Series Side by Side that will not disp


If you can't hear the solenoid on the water inlet valve(it's on the back where the water supply hooks up) when you try the water then the water switch on the dispenser is at fault.

If you do hear it Your water line could be frozen in the door. You can disconnect the line at the bottom before it goes into the door at the bottom hinge. Push the dispenser button and see if it comes out there. If it does, leave the door open till it thaws.

If it doesn't come out there disconnect it at the water inlet valve and see if it comes out there. The valve could be bad.

Ge gsl25jfrfbs water disoenser not working


Solenoid or the dispenser switch.

The water supply line connects to a water valve on the Ref. this water valve has two solenoids, one for the ice maker and one for the water in the door. Check this solenoid with an OHM meter.

The dispenser switch should send 110 volts to the solenoid. Check at the solenoid while pushing the water switch in the door.

Water dispenser will not work when lever is pressed. we had an intermittent problem with it before it stopped working altogather.I was going to look at it but was afraid to pop off the trim on the outside...


This could be a bad water valve in the frig. This frig has a double water valves. One for the ice maker and one for the water dispenser. It should be in the lower back. Where the water line goes in. You can check this valve easily. Find the double water valve on the frig. Turn off water supply to frig first. Swap the plastic water lines going from the water valve into the frig. Turn water supply on. Then see if the water dispenser works. Sometimes you will have to operate the water dispenser for a little while to get the air out of the line. If it works now then the problem is in the water valve solenoid and needs to be replaced.
