My water dispenser does not put out water. The icemaker is fine. Some time ago, the water began to take a little time to come out when the handle was pushed. Finally it stopped working altogether. Any suggestions?

On the rear of the refrigerator, there is a water control valve, that controls the flow of water to the icemaker and the water dispenser, if equipped. Hard water is usually the cause for this to quit running. The icemaker and water dispenser, are two separate circuits, and each one has it's own water control valve.
it sounds like your water valve is bad. you have a double water valve - one side operates the ice maker and the other side operates the water dispenser. the ice maker side of the valve is bad.
you can manually pour a little water in the ice maker ice mold and wait an hour or so - if it dumps the ice then you know for sure that the ice maker is cycling and water is not getting to the ice maker from the water valved
See if your water solenoid might be the problem. Your water supply line from the house will connect into a solenoid. I just recently solved a problem for someone on this site who had a solenoid that was sticking. Try tapping the solenoid gently to get it to activate or take it apart and depending on what type it is, manually move the spring loaded plunger a few times.
I think our water will dispense but our tab(arm) came off track and we don't know how to put it back on. Our icemaker works fine but can't see how the arm should be on. Let me know if you have any advice. Thanks, Shelby ~ Ohio
Mine has done this several times. There is a switch, usually in the tray above the ice container at the back. Move the switch to the OFF position for about 30 seconds. Now, turn the switch ON and push it hard in the ON position for about 30 seconds. This will 'jump start' your icemaker going again and you shouldn't have any more problems.
Should be no longer than 24hrs. Is the freezer good and cold.. has to reach a certain temp before icemaker activates.
Might take little longer if you put a lot of warm things in freezer or refrig. when you made the change.
Is there any water or ice in the icemaker itself? Water may not be getting to icemaker
call them back out if it dont work soon thats what warrantys for :0)
