Water not getting to water dispenser or ice maker - lines are clear.


Do you hear a clicking sound when attempting to dispense water? A click is usually heard when either of the water supply solenoid valves (one for water & one for ice) opens and closes when dispensing water, or when refilling the ice cube tray right after the ice maker dumps the ice cubes.

If you don't hear the clicking sound, there is probably an electrical problem. Given that BOTH water and ice no longer work, I doubt it both the water and ice maker water solenoid valves failed at the same time. It is probably going to require some digging to solve it.

If you do hear a clicking sound, check the shut off at the supply source. The "tap" type valves that puncture a sink's cold water supply line can become clogged by mineral deposits over time. Make sure that the fridge isn't resting on a supply line, effectively crushing it shut or closed - likewise, the line may have become kinked when the fridge was pushed back into position. You should try to dispense water while the fridge is out from the wall to see if it is a kinked line. Check the entire exposed length of the line for evidence of crushing, too. If the line is routed in cabinets, etc. you should try to inspect the line to make sure nothing fell out of a drawer - and crushed / kinked the line. Replace any damaged water line found. You could shut the water off, and remove the line from the fridge - then have someone turn the water on while you hold the line to fill a container. If it flows - the problem lies in the fridge. If not - it could be a clogged inline filter or bad valve.

There are a bunch of things to check that should be pretty easy to start. Hopefully, you needn't go any further. Good luck!

I have a Kenmore side by side, not sure the model, but it's probably 10 years old or so. It has an ice maker with water, cube and crushed ice dispenser. The ice maker works fine, but it will not dispense...


Most of the time the bin has been removed and not put back in properly. When this happens ice blocks the drive motor. Remove the bin and turn the auger by hand make sure it will turn and is not jammed. Now with the bin out push the light button in that turns the light out and have someone push the button for ice while the door is still open the motor should turn in the back make sure thereis no ice blocking it. If it turns nothing is wrong with the motor. The clicking sound is usually the motor jammed by ice or the auger not engaged on the motor. hope this helps good luck

Hi

If  The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

The ice maker is producing ice poorly When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve. 

First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.

We had the same problem. When we removed the ice receptical the mechanism that turned the ice make was broken and it stopped the ice from being dispensed. I hope it is that simple for you!

Ice maker not working


The icemakers won't make ice if the temperature is not below a certain set point. Varies between manufacturers. Try making the temp colder.

Your problems are the power board for sure. I have the same refrigerator and have read dozens of forums and advise pages looking for answers. If you let the problem countinue your fridge will completely stop cooling and all your food will be trash as has happened to me.

Symptoms: Fan in the back starts to make click or flopping sound as it tries to start up. Ice despenser doesent despense ice. water works sometimes. Eventually you notice your food defrosting partially and then refreezing as the defrost timer stops working which is controlled by the power board. Light dims and pulses when you hold the Ice despencer in. If you remove the light for the dispencer your water will work fine as long as the fan isnt making the clicking noise. Fan will eventually start up and run.

FYI GE customer Care is useless
