Not able to get water from the fridge

I changed the filter thinking it was plugged, but no help. It is is the "recommeded"area for the fridge, so it shouldn't freeze. but if it is frozen, how to unthaw it?

I used my blow dryer for about 5 minutes on the front third of the water dispenser. It thawed it out.

Freezer /fridge water/ice in fridge and or freezer

Usually due to CONDENSATION due to bad door seals or a plugged evaporator drain line? Can use a soft flexable tubing and very hot water to clean it out. Bad door seals usually need replacement, but u can use a blow dryer and something to pry it closer to the door wall while blowing hot air on to it. To create a seal, to test for bad door seals place a dollar bill in between the door and wall of fridge where it closes. Then slide out the dollar bill with door closed. It should offer some resistance and not be easy to pull out.
Most all fridges have a drain. Look inside your fridge for a "V" shaped channel with a small hole. This hole leads to a tube and a small pan which sits on top of your refrigerator's compressor. The defrost cycle causes water to run into the channel, down the tube, and then it generally evaporates with the heat of the hot condenser/compressor.
However, if that tube is clogged with food crumbs, particles , debris etc, you will have to clear it to get back to a normal mode of operation. A toothpick, pipecleaner, straw or a cotton bud can often do the trick.
Even a frost free freezer will still ice up at times in the areas away from the heated defrost area and the drain line can freeze. This icing causes the pipe work to the compressor to ice over or sweat and cause a puddle. Or if the drainage has frozen over, it will need to be de-iced. ( usually the line is under the freezer bottom plate covering. Towards the back of the unit) And there is another inside the fridge area also.
Give the freezer a good overnight defrost until it's totally clear of ice in addition to making sure the drain is clear to the pan at the back and then restart the freezer.

I have a Whirlpool fridge that needs a new water filter. Twice now, when I remove the filter to change it, water gushes out even though the ice maker is OFF. I quickly turn off the water line and mop


The Whirlpool fridge requires a water supply connection to a cold water line. Before you connect the water supply to the water line on the fridge, make certain the unit is unplugged from the wall. Press the button and drop down the cover. Then twist to release the old filter and twist the new one into the filter head. Run about 2 gallons of water through dispenser to remove any air from the lines. Liquid EPDM Rubber Roof Coatings for Roof Leaks Repair EPDMCoatings

At the back cover of the fridge you will find a double electric valve. The easy way to find valve is to follow water supply tube to your fridge
Unplug fridge and check with multimeter if one of the coils burned out and should be replaced. Make sure you close water shut off valve before removing solenoid. Good luck

Where is the water filter and how do i change it


Filter should be located on the bak of the fridge or in the back of the fridge. My guess is that it's the water fill solonoid that isn't working or the ice level control is thinking the bin is full. I would look for the ice level sensor and give it a cleaning or replace it

Ice smells bad


You can leave the fridge turned on but make sure you shut off the water and put a container under the filter when you remove is as there will be water that will try to go everywhere. Any filters are external so if you had to add one there won't be any others to change, Make sure you flush the new filter to the instructions when it is replaced.

I changed the water filter in my Whirlpool refrigerator, model #EDVHEXVQ01. I then tried to reset the filter light, but it did not work. Should I do something different to reset it or did I do something...


Hi

I guess you changed the filter with the fridge plugged in, you need to switch off and unplug the fridge, switch off the water. Then switch on the fridge and bleed the water line for 5 second intervals every 5 seconds for 1 to 2 minutes.
That should solve the problem

Regards

Water come's out to slow? changed filter! was doing it before i changed filter!


James -

Check to make sure the valve for the water supply is on fully - and not between the ON and OFF positions. If that is ok, the water supply line may have become restricted when the fridge was pushed into position the last time it was rolled out (for cleaning, etc.). The line may have become kinked (usually a copper line problem) or partially crushed (copper or plastic) under one of the fridge's rollers.

You should close the water valve before moving the fridge for inspection. Unplug the fridge. Disconnect the water line at the back of the fridge. Inspect the length of line for evidence of a crush or kink. Replace as needed. Test the flow of water into a larger container before reconnecting to fridge. If close to the fridge output, the valve and line to the fridge is suspect. Replace parts one at a time as needed until the problem is solved. If there is significantly more flow than when connected to the fridge, then the problem is somewhere in the fridge - but outside of the filter - there's little to change or go wrong for a "slow flow rate". It's usually an "all or nothing" deal inside the fridge.

Reassemble, turn water supply back on (check for leaks), plug into power, carefully roll fridge into position (watch the water line as long as possible to prevent crushing / kinking) and test.

Please rate this reply if helpful - good luck!

Ice maker hooked up for the first time doesn't work.


Hi, The storage is usually on the back fridge wall near bottom. Your answer indicates the demand solenoid is not operating. You will need to check wiring connection at the solenoid, and at the ice maker plug. Best of luck.
