Please accept this answer - and re-post with the exact model # of your fridge for more accurate help.
The controller board is probably the culprit - however the water valve may be faulty and in need of testing.

Thanks for using Fixya :D

    yes - it is plug and play - directly above the water/ice dispenser levers.
    If you reply with your model # I can show you diagrams and replacement board.

    THanks

Ice and Water not dispensing. Light button not working


http://www.repairclinic.com/0100_1.asp
There's an ice- or water-dispensing problem The ice and water-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Many components work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from a simple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most other components are not user serviceable. We suggest that you contact a qualified appliance repair technician for such repairs.

Ice dispenser stuck on


Either the paddle for the ice/water dispenser is stuck or you have a bad microswitch behind the dispenser.
To stop the ice/water from dispensing open the freezer door and press or hold the child lock button down. Once the unit is in child lock mode you can shut the door without energizing the dispenser.
Another option is to remove the upper freezer door hinge cover and disconnect the wire connector up there. This will remove voltage from the dispenser as well. Then either replace the paddle or switch. Sometimes the paddles/switches will get stuck because of splash up from ice dropping in sugary drinks.

GE Profile Artica - Water & ice dispensor not working.


This could be as simple as the door switch or as complex as the dispenser control board. I would try the door switch first. When the door is close it turns on the dispenser controls. If the contact is defective in the door/light switch then this happens. Unplug remove the door switch and mark wire locations. 1 Powers the lights and the other powers the dispenser. and one is the power itself. Sea Breeze

AMANA refridgerator water dispenser not working. Freezer door not closed properly last night.


Hello schlucks
welcome to fixya.

You said, Your AMANA refridgerator water dispenser not working. Freezer door not closed properly last night.

When the door to the freezer was left open all night,the moisture from outside caused the water line to the water dispenser to freeze!
What you need to do is to move all the articles from your freezer to a spare or second freezer
temporarily.
Then turn off the freezer compartment of the first unit where the water is not depensing .
you will need 12 to 24 hours untill the line defrosts.
If the dispenser works sooner then don't wait any longer to restart the freezer.

In some models, the fact that the freezer is turned off may affect the power in the dispenser untill the freezer is turned back on.

After you finish defrosting and turn the freezer back on. give it 24 hours to get back to running temperture.
Then reload the articles agin.
BUT DO NOT TAKE 20 TRIPS TO BRING THE PACK AGES AND LOAD IT, LEAVING THE DOOR OPEN AGAIN!
Bring the articles to the freezer and load it straight awy quickly and close the door.
This will solve your problembarring any damage to the dispenser!t
Thank You for having me advice you.
Huuum
Please remember to leave a rating!
I'm sure you are solved!



Some info!!!!!!!!!!

cold air to the bin and make it colder.
Water and Ice Dispensers
(on some models)
Depending on your model, you may have one or more of the
following options: the ability to select either crushed or cubed
ice, a special light that turns on when you use the dispenser, or a
lock option to avoid unintentional dispensing.
NOTES:
■ The dispensing system will not operate when the freezer door
is open.
■ After connecting the refrigerator to a water source, flush the
water system. Use a sturdy container to depress and hold the
water dispenser lever for 5 seconds, then release it for
5 seconds. Repeat until water begins to flow. Once water
begins to flow, continue depressing and releasing the
dispenser lever (5 seconds on, 5 seconds off) for an
additional 2 minutes. This will flush air from the filter and
water dispensing system. Additional flushing may be required
in some households. As air is cleared from the system, water
may spurt out of the dispenser.
■ Allow 24 hours for the refrigerator to cool down and chill
water.
■ Allow 24 hours to produce the first batch of ice. Discard the
first three batches of ice produced.

Ice and Water not dispensing. Light button not working


INSIDE THE DISPENSER ASSEMBLY IS A SEPARATE ELECTRONIC BOARD THAT CONTROLS THE DISPENSER.
OCCASIONALLY, THE DOOR SOLENOID OR THE CUBE ICE SOLENOID WILL SHORT OUT CAUSING A BURNOUT OF THE DISPENSER CONTROL BOARD. CHECK FOR A BURNT SMELL COMING FROM THE DISPENSER HOUSING. IF YOU SMELL IT, THE BOARD AND/OR SOLENOID NEED TO BE REPLACED.

Ice/Water Dispenser in Freezer door not working when you press the lever. Also the light dims when lever is pressed. Icemaker working fine.


Sounds like a frozen waterline. I fixed mine by leaving the light on the dispenser on. It took about 6 hrs, but the little heat from the light bulb was enough to defrost the water line.
