Question about Whirlpool 25.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with In-Door-Ice Dispensing System
Water shuts off. Technician advice was to keep vent open in the fridge so water won't freeze. Done that and dispenser still shuts off.
Often if you experience a freeze up it will take less time to refreeze because the tubing never got clear during the defrost originally. Try the defrost again and this time run at least a gallon of water through the water dispenser.
And although you say keep the vent open I have to offer the opposite solution close the vent. Too much cold air from the freezer is getting into the bottom of the fridge. closing the vent should allow the temp to rise. Assuming yours is a manual vent. If it is thermostatically controlled the controls may be at fault or the vent door may be warped or blocked open by ice.
