How to fix my Refrigerator water dispenser?

I have a kitchenaid kscs25ftss02. Yesterday I changed the filter and was attempting to go through the air purging process by running 3 gallons of water through the filter. As typical the first gallon went moderately fast with some air sputtering. It was late and I didn't abide by the 5 second on 5 second off rule. I stopped and emptied my pitcher and went to do another gallon, again not abiding by the 5 second on and off rule, it dispensed maybe 30 ounces over a very long period of time. I stopped to give it a break and when I came back 10 minutes later the dispenser had stopped dispensing water. The ice dispenses fine and the solenoid clicks when i push the water lever. All the lights and such are on and everything else is working fine. How can I tell what's wrong and more importantly a DIY fix? Thank You. FCG

Water to the ice maker and to the dispenser are turned on and off by a coil on the dual water control valve. Unfortunately these coils cannot remain on for long extended periods of time. If the coils remain on for extended times they heat up and it's very possible that the coil on the water control valve for the dispenser has burned out. I'll get the part number and a description photo for you if you would like. I'm here and available for questions if you need any answers Thank You, John T. Appliance 911

SOURCE: Water and ice dispenser and panel light stopped working.

Oakescreek, start with simple things first. Check the freezer door light interlock switch. This has to be closed to send power to the dispenser. If that is working ok, check the harness coming from the bottom of the freezer door for cracked or split wires. Check the harness plug itself to make sure it is completely connected. If these things check out ok, we will need to verify that we are getting voltage to the dispenser selection switch. If we are and it is still not operating..then I would suspect that to be the problem. I'll keep and eye peeled for a reply. Catriver.

SOURCE: KitchenAid Superba ice maker not dispensing ice

this is not a solution, but an explanation- our repair man said that there is a line (tube) containing electric wires that passes from the frig to the door at the bottom of the door, near the hinge. for what ever reason, the line has broken, thus keeping the electric from getting to the motor that dispense ice and water- solution= $700 for a new door; we'll do without

SOURCE: water dispenser doesnt work, ice dispenser works fine

1) remove the tubing connector behind refrig kickplate . Press for water . If no water comes from tube under refrig , then possibly frozen tank but probably not . Probably bad water inlet valve . ( tank is in the lower potrion of the refrig section behind the crispers ) .
2) if water does shoot out , then your freezer door is frozen which requires leaving door open and tapeing light switch closed and tape plastic around freezer section opening so fridge will continue to operate normally . Thawing freezer door could take a day or 2 . 3) You can plug the hoses back togather and walk by occasionally pressing water untill comes out . Lower your freezer temperature setting also ( could be set for too cold)

How and where do you change water filter


From the KitchenAid Manual:

The water filter is located in the upper right-hand corner of the
refrigerator compartment.

Replacing the Water Filter
To purchase a replacement water filter, model 67003523 Part
Number 4396395, contact your dealer or call 1-800-442-9991
U.S.A. or 1-800-807-6777 Canada.
IMPORTANT: Air trapped in the water system may cause water
and filter to eject. Always dispense water for at least 2 minutes
before removing the filter or blue bypass cap.

1. Turn filter counterclockwise to remove.
2. Remove sealing label from replacement filter and insert the
filter end into the filter head.
3. Turn the filter clockwise until it stops. Snap the filter cover
closed.
4. Flush the water system. Depending on your model, see
"Water Dispenser" or "Water and Ice Dispensers."
NOTE: The dispenser feature may be used without a water filter
installed. Your water will not be filtered. If this option is chosen,
replace the filter with the blue bypass cap.

I have a KitchenAid KSCS25FKSS Side by Side Refrigerator and gray-black particles are coming out of the water dispenser even after I changed the filter. How do I clean the water lines out?


Hi,

I assume this started after the filter replacement and not before. The filters are charcoal based and will need to be flushed through the dispenser (approx. 2 gals) this should clear up as it normally does. Keep in mind that even the ice will have to be dumped also.

Good Luck, I hope this helps

Kitchenaid no water, but ice


first thing i would check here is my water resivoir, on these models it has a tendency to freeze,, hit the tank and upper line with a hair dryer for several minutes then give the water a try....
barring that it may be time to change your water filter even if the sensor has not picked it up yet
