Water dispenser and ice-maker do not work

Frigidaire side-by-side refrigerator (just out of warranty) water dispenser and ice maker stopped working about 10 days ago.  Water filter cartridge mechanism was frozen.  Used hair dryer to thaw and changed the filter.  Things were okay until yesterday when the water filter cartridge mechanism froze again.  What causes this and what is the fix?

SOURCE: Ice dispenser not dispensing

With your power going off your problem sounds like a dispenser control can check for power at the auger motor

I would remove the dispencer cover and check the boards for burn marks

hope it helps

  1. I would remove both solenoids (one at a time-not to mix them up) pay attention and mark all parts- try cleaning or replacing them. Most are fairly common supply items. Paying attention to wiring and proper installation is important during re assemble. JOHN-LA

Frigidaire gallery side by side won't send water to ice maker tray, but will to water dispenser

Hello Jim czyryca - From what you are describing if the ice maker is not making ice but is dispensing water, sounds like the refrigerator has a frozen water line, faulty ice maker valve or bad component that sends power to the ice maker valve when needed. The ice maker cycles internally to call for water so I strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately to assist with the repairs.

Frigidaire water stopped maker.dispenser fine

You probably have an obstruction in filter compartment. you should remove filter and inspect o rings etc. or anything that could have clogged it up. The only other thing that could be the cause is a bad water valve. Side by sides have a double water valve. one for water ,one for ice maker. You can check this by having someone flip ice maker arm down so it calls for water and feel water valve as it runs and possibly hear it too. Hope this helps.

Frigidaire signaling water dispenser instead of ice maker

Sounds like the water solinoid valves are wired wrong.One activates The water dispenser.The other the ice maker.That, why every so often the water shoots out on the floor.The ice maker is telling the valve to open.
