WATER DISPENSER ON GALAXY SIDE BY SIDE REFRIGERATOR DOESN'T WORK

WATER DISPENSER DOESN'T WORK

    I was filling a water bottle and propped it up. It overflowed while I wasn't looking. when I pulled it off the water dispenser was not working any more. The valve is on and the icemaker is working fine. I don't know if backflow broke something. I feel really dumb for doing that, but we use a lot of water so I want to fix it.

Sounds like if your ice maker is still working, you're having an issue with your filter maybe freezing. Check to make sure your water filter isn't froze. What you're talking about with the overflow is a coincidence, but unless the internal wiring for the unit inside of the dispenser got damaged, i doubt thats the reason why. It's either a frozen filter or bad water valve. Try dethawing the filter or taking it out and seeing how much pressure there is built up in it. There's also a water reservoir in the back of this unit that may be froze too.

Frigidaire galaxy series makes ice but won't dispense


If nothing at all happens then check the micro switch on the lever/button section. This will probably require taking the dispenser section off. If nothing at all is happening its as though it doesn't register the dispense, if the switch worked then at least something would happen ie the flap, the drive motor etc

Does your fridge have a small tank inside the food compartment? If so, the water may have frozen in the tank and the problem can be solved if you take a blow dryer and warm the tank. That's what happened to mine and with a temp adjustment to keep the food compartment a bit warmer, the water doesn't freeze.

Refrigerator about 5 years old. stopped dispensing water twice in last 12 months. Ice and crushed ice works perfectly. No water for last 2 months. Whats up?


You have two points where you can check the dispenser water. At the rear where the water supply comes in is the water inlet valve. If you disconnect the dispenser water line and then see if the water comes out when you try the dispenser. You should hear the valve work when you try the dispenser. If you don’t hear it there is a dispenser actuator switch problem. If you do hear it but water doesn’t work here there is a valve or water supply problem. If it's normal, disconnect it at the bottom of the freezer door and try again.If it's normal here it may be frozen in the door. If this is the case open the door till it thaws. A blanket over the opening will prevent thawing of all the food.

I have a leaky spigot what can I do


If the spigot means the end of the water tube in the water dispenser, and it steadily drips even if the dispenser is not used for 10 minutes or so - replace the water valve. If the dispenser drips water mostly wright after you used it - you might have some air bubbles in the refrigerator water tubing.

Not making ice


The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.
The valve can leak because of sediment in the water preventing it from closing or low water pressure.

Water line


That coil is the line to the water dispenser, and its purpose is to chill the water before dispensing it. The coil of tubing is better than a tank because it chills quickly, takes less space and doesn't hold stagnant water. It shouldn't have any effect on the icemaker.
