Question about LG LRSC-26922 Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

No water/ice dispensing

My 6+ year old LG refrigerator stopped dispensing both ice & water a few weeks ago. A fwe months prior, there had been some low water pressure and was going to get a new filter (original), but normal pressure returned and never got around to getting new filter. The ice maker is grinding away just like normal, so called LG and a tech rep troubleshot it over the phone. He seemed to know what he was talking about and believed my problem was linked to the reversing solenoid. So I removed and inspected, but could not really detect anything wrong, so wrote part # down and re-installed, but water and ice is still not dispensing. Also, while looking over the solenoid mechanism, I could not determine how that might be causing both problems. I could see where it was needed for dispensing ice, but not water, so maybe I'm missing something? A replacement solenoid will run ~$25, so not big expense and easy to replace, but just not convinced the solenoid is my problem, or at least not my entire problem, so interested in what the experts think?

I would make sure all the doors are completely closed. If you can't completely close one of your freezer doors, you may have ice built up behind it. Take your freezer bin out and see if you have to defrost.

SOURCE: LG refrigerator won't dispense water any more

The water line is freezing in the door due to deteriorated insulation. The only fix I have found to work on my fridge was to defrost the inside door with a blow dryer. Then place a weedeater replacement line (the orange 10" or so size you find at Lowes' or Home Depot) up through the dispenser nozzle, If the line only travels about 3-4 inches up the nozzle, then ice is still in the tube. Blow dry it until you are able to get water to dispense. After the tube is ice-free, place the weedeater line up throuth the dispenser nozzle leaving about 1/8" sticking out. The dispenser will still work with the line stuck in it. The dispenser will probably freeze again in about 8 hours, But all you need to do each time this happens is to pull the weedeater line out, dispense the water to unclog the ice, and place the weedeater line back in the nozzle. I have been using this method for about a week now and it works great. My GE Side-by-side is also 4 years old and this seems to be a problem with all of them. There is a part you can order to fix the problem, but I have heard it may not work.

Replace water filter, this unit had a issue with restrictions in filter due to a design issue. Water valve is all so called a water pump from many people.

Ice and Water not dispensing. Light button not working


http://www.repairclinic.com/0100_1.asp
There's an ice- or water-dispensing problem The ice and water-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Many components work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from a simple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most other components are not user serviceable. We suggest that you contact a qualified appliance repair technician for such repairs.

My new Whirlpool Refrigerator the water and ice still stink


We have the same problem. Started 2 weeks after purchase. (6 months ago). Tech. replaced fliter, worked for another 2 weeks, then water & ice awful again. Tried to live w/ it - ordered another filter a week ago. Replaced & within 24 hrs. problem was back. Called Whirlpool. Said tech who came to my househad written in his report that tap water & fridge water tasted the same. A lie - he agreed w/ me that the water from fridge was bad, & replaced filter which had a musty odor. Whirlpool basically called me a liar but agreed to send another tech to check it out. I will never buy another Whirlpool product & plan to tak this problem as far as I need to in order to get satisfaction. This is ridiculous!

10 yr old Frigidaire ice maker stopped making ice


try forcing the cycle by manually triggering the cycle a few times. Sometimes you can detach the trip arm or turn the tray by hand by disconnecting it from the gear. There may have been a switch bumped to turn it off or the switch somehow jammed. Maybe check for freeze-up. If there is water in it, it's going somewhere.

its possible that your water tank has frozen up, try turning the refrig off and leave the doors open for about 10-15 mins and try it again. if that works just reset temp controls a little lower..
