Question about Frigidaire Gallery FGHB2844LF 27.8 cu. ft. French Door Refrigerator with 4 SpillSafe Sliding Glass Shelves, 2 Clear Full-Width Humidity Crispers, External Ice/Water Dispenser, Ramp-Up Lighting and Self-Closing Pull-Out Freezer Drawer: Stainless Steel

Open Question

Dispenser will not operate.

My first inclination was to replace was to replace the dispenser module, but changed my mind when it worked a couple of times. It stopped working again and I removed the module. What is strange about it is, Once I move the display just enough to get my hands in there, If I hit the push in the chute and pull back on the solenoid at the same time, it works every time. Very seldom can you catch it to work on its own. This problem is driving me Bonkers. Is this a control board issue...?

CHeck to make sure your freezer is 0 to 5 degrees. If it is warmer than that the water valve wont open to the ice maker. Have you replaced the water filter?

Sounds like the timer could be getting stuck and not releasing the defrost cycle

SOURCE: No water to ice maker. Water dispenser works fine.

The dual water valve is not working or is leaking and water freezes up in the ice maker filling tube and when it needs water won't go through.

    Hi Clifton - Make sure you have cleaned the unit's coils and behind the toe grille at the bottom/front of the unit. If the unit is not cooling, check to see if you hear or feel the compressor running. If you do not, contact a service professional immediately. If you do, and it is not cooling you may have a coolant leak or an issue with the internal sealed system of the unit and need a professional still. Try to clean it first however and make sure no vent on the inside of the unit is blocked by food items.

    FGHB2844LF water dispenser not working

    Turn the temp down on the refrigerator side but not below freezing. Some frigs have a "trap" set up for the water dispenser. its located behind a panel in the frig and it is there to help chill the water before it dispenses. if the frig setting is too cold then it can freeze the water .

    After changing the water filter, the ice maker is not working. The water dispenser is working properly.

    You may need to replace the dual water control valve due to only the water dispenser side of the water control valve being the only side that works. What is the model number of your Kenmore refrigerator? Kenmore model numbers look like this=> 321.235689 as an example. An example of the water control valve if your model number was 321.235689 is part number=> 12001414 Water Inlet Valve

    Don't use this example as the correct part. Look around the fresh food section door frame for your correct model number, Thanks

    ED5GTQXKQ01 Whirlpool Side by Side motor not turning.

    This is a complicated system to diagnose, and one not recommended by the average DIYer. I would recommend in this case to have a qualified whirlpool technician at least inspect and give you a diagnosis. Due to its complicated nature, and the difficulty in accessing all the parts needed to test, if done incorrectly, you could further damage the door, or the dispenser module.

    Hi sckk,
    ngafm at your service,

    Your indoor ice and water keeps getting iced up.
    There is an air leak somewhere between the ice and water dispenser on the door and the freezer!
    there are many places that this may be. But usually the spring loaded door where the ice drops out to the door ice machine!
    It takes a good tech sometimes a couple visits changing a couple of parts till he gets it.
    There is no sure fire way to diagnose which part is the culprit thats leaking air.You need an experienced tech that eyeballs it and knows what parts to choose first to be replaced.
    The air leak almost microscopic to the eye.
    Sometimes you take ice from the door and the crack only closes full some time after wards. Then the tech comes the next day and sees nothing. Or it is intermittent problem!

    My advice is only a trained tech can remedy this problem, this time!
    If I were there I'm sure I could nail it down!

    You need hands on service!
    Bless You ,
    please give me a goo rating before you sign off.
    Thank you.
