I have an intermittent but regular airlock on my water dispenser which clears if I open the fridge door until the light comes on at which time the water flows freely! Any ideas?

Ice and water dispensing intermittently on my Maytag model MF2568AES12 refrigerator. I replaced the light switch in the freezer, which didn't help. What should I do next?


On top of the fridge underneath the plastic cover for the door hinge probably on the door with the water/ice dispenser should be a wiring harness. This runs the ice dispenser and water. There should be a wiring harness plug there. Try unplugging it and reconnecting. This may be the cause since you said it's intermittent and with opening and closing the door it may be causing the plug to ever so slightly move around and loose electrical connection.

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.

Water and ice work intermittently. Is it freezing up? what position should the wire device be in to work? up,or down? Is that an on/off switch? It has had water,and made ice,but now there is no water...


The ice maker arm should be down for the ice maker to operate. How was the water dispenser flow rate when it did work? You may have a restricted filter, a frozen water reservoir (located behind crispers in fridge) or possibly a bad valve (at the back of the fridge where water connects) . You should also check your shut-off where your water connects, saddle valve type connections are prone to restrictions- try closing and opening it a few times.
Hope this helps!.

We have a Hotpoint side by side fridge. It always makes


check the door in the dispenser if moisture is condensing and freezing so that the door won't open try manually popping the door open just before you attempt to dispense ice, maybe you'll get lucky, otherwise your going to have to get a technician to come and check the micro-switch for the dispenser

My fridge/freezer is having problems dispensing cold water. It works well when the fridge door is open, but struggles and makes load banging noises when the door is closed.


That would be a clear sign that the tubing is folding when the door is shut. When the door is opened you should also not be able to use the dispenser functions without pressing the light switch in. I believe on yours the water line comes in the left hand door at bottom near the hinge. Can you find the model number so I can try to provide a visual presentation? Look around the fresh food door and near floor for the model number of your Whirlpool. Thanks, Sea Breeze

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)

Intermittent flapping noise whirlpool fridge freezer


Hi: Go easy on my rating as this is just something to try. You say it dosn't have a dispenser. Does it have an Ice maker? If so is it hooked up? If not try raising the lever on the ice maker up to the off position. The water valve may ve trying to open and without water pressure it will make a noise. It would also be related to the switches on the door. I hope this helps, Jeff

Water dispenser on our Whirlpool fridge freezer seems to get an airlock from time to time and the water is dispensed noisily and in spurts! Any clues?


TRY AND REMOVE THE PIPES THAT LINK THE WATER TO THE FRIDGE AND REMOVE THE AIR IN THE LINE ALSO THAT CAN BE CAUSED THROUGH THE MAIN WATER LINE TO YOUR HOUSE.


GOOD LUCK.

I had luck with a board with a clicking relay by replacing capacitors C29 and C30, which had bulged tops. Bravo, fridge works!
