Hello Cynthia;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You have a water pressure problem. You need at least 60 PSI water pressure to open the solenoid valves. I suspect you are getting small ice cubes.

If you have well water you are not going to get the pressure for fully dispenser flow.

I have experienced bad water filters. One time our techs received a large shipment of bad water filters. Remove the water filter and test the water dispenser.

With low water pressure you may not want to use a water filter

Testimonial: "Hi, Peter, Thanks very much for the quick reply. I'll try removing the filter to see if that helps. Thanks again! Cynthia"

My whirlpool ed20db ice maker isn't making ice. Inlet tube is frozen solid


Thanks for the model number. The water control valve=> W10245167 Water Inlet Valve will need replaced when this happens. Problem allows water to leak slowly into the ice maker and fill tube can become solid very quickly, or very messy ice formations coming down from ice maker, Thanks John Tripp Appliance 911

My new refrigerator's ice maker and water dispenser doesnt work


Since this is a brand new unit, I wouldn't waste the time or money troubleshooting it yourself; contact the place you purchased it from and exchange it.

The water dispenser is really slow coming out and it takes however to make ice. There is no kink in the water line to the fridge.


water stopped dispersing out of water dispense, No indication as to why. New filter was instlled, checked water line, no leakage indicated, ice maker had been making ice prior to this, turned off ice maker to avoid motor burn out.

Whirlpool GR2FHTXVQ00 fridge. Water dispenser


The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.
The valve can leak because of sediment in the water preventing it from closing or low water pressure.

You can thaw out the fill tube and replace the inlet valves.

The water dispenser unit has a tube coming into the back of the fridge. Anytime you dispense water, it will also leak from this tube in the back. Also, about once a day or so, it will sound like water is...

How do i connect water to my refrigerator


I'm assuming that you have a water and ice dispenser in the door. OK, The simplest and quickest way to do this is to go to a home improvement store such as The Home Depot,and buy an water/ice maker tube installation kit. This kit includes: 15 feet of 1/4 tubing,the 2 brass fittings you'll need, and a water filter. Once you get this kit,there will be instructions on how to assemble the brass nut and ferrel fittings. Then you'll have to find the water valve on the back of the fridge,usually it's on the lower right hand corner if your'e facing the back of the fridge.If you don't see it,you may have to pull back the little cardboard tab to expose it. Now hook up the hose kit you just bought to the valve on the fridge and then hook up the other end of the hose to house water valve. Then turn on the water and you are ready to go. NOTE: If your house doesn't have a valve already,then you'll have to buy a kit that you install under your kitchen sink,this kit has a piercing valve that you connect to you cold water side copper 3/8 tubing. If you don't have copper tubing visible,then you'll have to buy a 3-way (T) and just install it under your sink.

Water dispenser problem


Did the man who installed it use plastic hose or copper pie? PLastic pipe can get crimpled (closed) and starve the water supply.
Simply move the refrigerator far enough away from the wall and see if the tubing is crimped. If it is copper and it is crimped- you should call the installer back to repair the copper pie. Once copper pipe is crimped- it is unusable and must be refitted with a coupling or union or some other proper repair.

Maybe this is all that is wrong.......
Hope this helpes!!!

Bad water & ice cube taste


Hello redwood City
Welcome

You said,
Your Kitchenaid Superba KSRG25FKBL15 has bad tasting water and ice cubes. You replaced the copper tubing which delivers the water to the fridge and that didn't help. You replaced the copper tubing again with plastic tubing...no better. Any suggestions? Your tap water doesn't taste this bad.You bought a Kenmore french door fridge with water dispenser in the door in July 2008. The fridge has a filter. A few weeks after the fridge came the water and ice started tasting really bad, unlike any bad water taste I have ever tasted. And your tap water is fine. The bad taste appears to be random. Sometimes you get a cup full of nasty water and sometimes it tastes fine.

First you must know you have a 1 year warranty and can have them come out to fix anything, no charge.If it persists. You will have to get tough and you , MUST INSIST THEY REPLACE YOUR FRIDGE


When installing the water line these were a part of the directions!
Did you do this before connecting the water line to your fridge?
"Place the free end of the tubing in a container or sink, and
turn ON the main water supply. Flush the tubing until water is
clear. Turn OFF the shutoff valve on the water pipe. Coil the
copper tubing."



Whirlpool remedy
Off-taste, odor or gray color in the ice
1.Are the plumbing connections new, causing discolored or
off-flavored ice? Discard the first few batches of ice.
2.Have the ice cubes been stored too long? Throw old ice
away and make a new supply.
3.Does the freezer and ice storage bin need to be cleaned?
See “Cleaning” or “Ice Maker and Storage Bin.”
4.Has food in the freezer or refrigerator been wrapped
properly? Use airtight, moisture-proof packaging to help
prevent odor transfer to stored food.
5.Does the water contain minerals (such as sulfur)? A filter
may need to be installed to remove the minerals.
6. Is there a water filter installed on the refrigerator? Gray or
dark discoloration in ice indicates that the water filtration
system needs additional flushing. Run additional water
through the water dispenser to flush the water filtration
system more thoroughly (at least 2 to 3 gal. [8 to 12 L] or 6 to
7 minutes initially). Discard discolored ice.

Let me know what works,
Thank You ,
HUUUM!!
