Question about Refrigerators

Amana ABC2037DES Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

The water spigot freezes. Most times, when the dispenser button is pushed, the dispenser pushes out a small particle of ice. This morning, it took a few pushes of the button to free the line for water flow. Why is this?

water line going to dispenser. If you cannot set the temperature a little warmer this can be caused by a defective W10196393 Auto Damper This problem also can be caused by the fresh food section 12002355 Thermistor The thermistor is a electronic way of measuring temperatures in fresh food section, freezer and ice maker also have thermistors.
Here is a ABC2037DES Tech Sheet with the diagnostic's
for thermistor's and the auto damper, I will help you if you like so please let me know if you have questions, Thanks Sea Breeze

SOURCE: Problem with water flow in LG LRBC22544 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

Sounds like you have excess pressure building up in the water system. Is the water dispensor working? If not it sounds like you have a frozen line somewhere or the valve in the door is not working to allow the water to dispence.

If there is a reset button on your ice maker try pushing it. Many ice makers have two holes for reset. A general rule of thumb is if the ice maker fingers are stopped in a slightly vertical position then your ice maker unit is working. If the fingers are stopped anywhere else then it needs some sort of attention or replaced. Make sure there is water, or ice in the ice maker tray, if not then the problem is with water supply.

SOURCE: After 3 years we have ice but no water from the dispenser

Remove the bottom kickplate and the hose at the bottom of the door goes underneath the refrig about 3 inches , to a hose connector . Push in on the end of the connector and pull out the hose . Close the freezer door and press water . If water comes sprays out from hose under frig , then your door is frozen internally .If no water sprays out of hose , then your watervalve is bad . One coil is for ice and the other is for water but they come togather as one.

Water dispenser keeps freezing GE Refrigerator


If this is a newer model GE side by side refrigerator, this is not uncommon. what you can do to check to see what is going wrong, remove the toe plate at the bottom front of the unit. Under the freezer door, you will see a white plastic water line, with an inline connector about 4-5" from where the line comes out the bottom of the door. this is normally a blue push-in type connector. On this connector, you will see two white sleeves on either side, push in on this sleeve while pulling the corresponding water line section out of the connector, if you squeeze the sleeve enough, the water line will slip right out. Place a towel on the floor, make sure both ends are on top of towel. Now, breifly actuate your water dispenser trigger, see if water comes out the exposed water line. If water comes out, your entire water dispenser system is OK, but, the water line in the freezer door is frozen, in which case the only way to melt it, is to turn the unit off, open the freezer door, and blow a fan for a few hours, to melt the ice INSIDE the door. You could also buy a new door, but that is very costly.
If no water comes out the exposed water line, then either your water filter is clogged, or you have a bad water valve solenoid

Water dispenser stopped working, freezer temp down

You can disconnect the line under the unit 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
disconnect the line to the water dispenser at the water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in and try the dispenser. if you hear the valve work but water doesn't come out, the valve is bad. If you don't hear the valve, the dispenser switch is bad.

Internal water dispenser stopped working


I lowered the temp on the freezer to 4 overnight, by morning water dispenser is working fine. I think that when we changed the temp to 7 (in order to make more ice ) it froze the water pipe going to the dispenser. I am going to keep both fridge and freezer at 5 ,and hope this will not happen again.

Water dispenser


Usually when this problem occurs, i just keep pushing the button and it will after a minute come through. This time, i had to remove the water filter and empty the water out, put the filter back in and pushed the button til it dripped, then a trickle and then it was back to normal.

No water thru door


I would try putting on the light at the dispenser. It worked for me but took almost 24 hours to work. I am now keeping the light on all the time. Simple solution to try. My ice was working when the water was not coming out.
