No water in ice maker and water dispenser

Good Morning Friend,

I understand your Frigidaire refrigerator is not making ice and not dispensing water. I suggest starting by changing the water filter in your refrigerator. You should be changing the water filter about every 6-8 months. If this does not work, I also suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and try getting water out of the dispenser. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

The ice maker works but the water dispenser does not dispense water.

I had the same issue. I added a heater element (available on Amazon), replaced the flapper valve and the solenoid to ope the flapper valve. My opinion (not technically validated) was that the flapper valve (for the ice dispenser) was not sealing well so the ice chute was freezing (creating a lot of ice) and this the water tuning was also freezing.

GE Refrigerator Ice and Water dispenser stopped working after power outage

More than likely the user interface board that controls that portion of the machine is probably bad, or, worse case scenario the main control board which has the overall say so for the machine has gone out which isn't uncommon either. My best advice is if your going to do it yourself buy your parts from because of their return policy which you can return any part you bought even if installed/

Hi, In my refrigrator there is no water and ice coming.and i dont find where is the refrigrator type is 2255a mod # ed2choxkb07 ser,# issu4235315.thanks

Since you did not provide a model number this is the best guess. On 25 Cu Ft and above models no matter the manufacturer most of the filters are in the left portion of the grille at floor level. You turn the tab and the filter pops free. If yours is not in this are just respond here with a model number and I will help you.

Amana Fridge isn't filling the ice tray with water...=/

it seems to me (no expert) that you have an ice buildup in the tubing to the freezing portion of that unit. I can only suggest to turn off the Refrigerator for a little while, an hour or two at most, and see if the tubing thaws.
