There is no water coming out of our fridge's water dispenser
We already changed the water filter thinking that is was just old and clogged but that wasn't it, we have water coming all the way to the freezer door (we checked the hose on the bottom of the freezer door going into the freezer door) but it stops in the freezer door somewhere. What can we do??

Re: there is no water coming out of our fridge's water...
Sounds like your line has ice in it.Try thawing it out by turning it off and leave doors open,put pans of hot water in to speed it up.

pull line off of the back of fridge to see if water comes out if not its where ever you have that line taped into yuur water supply for the fridge had the same problem hard water clogged up the tee off take it off poke some thing in the little hole make sure you have the water shut off to the water supply when was the last time you changed the filter in you fridge it could be tht too
the filter can become clogged and restrict the water flow to the water dispenser and icemaker (i.e. water dispenses slow or small/hollow ice cubes). if the filter doesn't fix it then you either have a water supply problem or a faulty water valve. take the filter out and see if the water pressure increases out of the dispenser. if it does, you know its the filter. hope this helps.
My GE Profile has a system water filter. The manual said that if the filter clogs--it will not allow water to pass thru--any ice already made will still dispense but no new ice will be made. If you have a filter and it is over 9-10 months old, it could be clogged.
There can be many reasons for no water supply. Line feeding the refrigerator is clogged or blocked. The water control valve that turns water to ice maker and dispenser is defective or the water filter located inside your refrigerator is in need of change. I will be here to help you go through the steps. Let me know when you are ready, Thanks, Sea Breeze
yes it is. as long as there is still water coming out from the dispenser.
the red light only indicates that it is about time to replace the filter. could be 6 months old. this is controlled by time, so check your water pressure at the dispenser, if it is still strong, then you could still use it .
depending on your condition, some filters would be clogged already even if the light is still green and there is no more water coming out of your dispenser.
Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,
You said, When the water dispenser is pushed you
can hear it try to work (a humming or pumping sound) but nothing comes
out. Below is a list of reasons that the water may not be working that are easily checked and remedyed by you! Is there a water shut off on your fridge?If so the dispensor will still make noise as if it is trying, even if it is locked!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
1. When did you change the internal water filter last? You can remove the water filter and still use the water dispenser to check if the filter may be the problem!If nothing changes reinsert the water filter.
2.Flushing the water system after replacing filter Use a sturdy container to depress the water dispenser bar until the water begins to flow. Flush the water system by dispensing and discarding 2 to 3 gal. (8 to 12 L) of water. Cleaning the system will take approximately 6 to 7 minutes and will help clear air from the line. Additional flushing may be required in some households. NOTE: As air is cleared from the system, water may spurt out of the dispenser.
3.***Read this: The dispenser lock (on some models) Your dispenser can be turned off for easy cleaning or to prevent accidental dispensing by small children and pets. To turn off the dispenser, press the LOCK button. The indicator will appear above the LOCK button and the ice and water dispensers will not work. To unlock the dispenser, press the UNLOCK button until the indicator appears. Then continue to dispense ice or water as usual. NOTE:********** The lock feature does not shut off power to the product, to the ice maker, or to the dispenser light. It simply deactivates the dispenser levers.
4.The water dispenser will not operate properly Has the water system not filled? The water system needs to be filled the first time it is used. Use a sturdy container to depress the water dispenser bar until the water begins to flow. Flush the water system by dispensing and discarding 2 to 3 gal. (8 to 12 L) of water. Cleaning the system will take approximately 6 to 7 minutes and will help clear air from the line. Additional flushing may be required in some households. See the “Water and Ice Dispensers” section. Is the water shutoff valve not turned on or the water line connected at the source? Make sure the water shutoff valve is turned on and the water source is connected to the refrigerator. See the “Water Supply Connection” section. Is the water shutoff valve clogged or incorrectly installed? See the “Water Supply Connection” section. If clogging or installation is not a problem, call for service or contact a plumber. Is there a kink in the home water source line? If you find or suspect a kink in the water line, call for service. Is there a water filter installed on the refrigerator? The filter may be clogged or incorrectly installed. First, check the filter installation instructions to ensure that the filter was installed correctly and is not clogged. If installation or clogging is not a problem, call for service.
