    You may need to hook up the water line to the fridge in order to get all that working. I know that the ice and water won't work unless you get the line hooked up. That may get rid of the red light as well. I would look up the possible problems for that light coming on. http://www.eskirefrigeration.com.au

you have inadvertently activated the button lock- keep children and other hooligans from playing with the buttons. :)

Hold down the light button until the red key is no longer lit.

SOURCE: door panel to dispense ice and water doesn't work.

I have the same problem. I have to turn off the power button on refrigerator and turn it back on again. Then the ice dispenser and water dispenser will work again. It happened very often.

SOURCE: the light and water dispenser on my subzero is locked. I can not

It just happened to me. I went onto the Sub Zero official site and downloaded the user's manual. To deactivate the lock, press the light key and hold it down for 5 seconds.

SOURCE: Red lock light is on below ice and water

Does this model have a light button? (I know the 685 and the 695 do.) If it does, press and hold the Light button until all the LEDs light up once. This takes about 5 seconds. (Repeating the process will reenable the lock.)

I hope this helps.

How to change the light bulb in the outside ice/water dispenser



Question about Maytag 22.6 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator with PuriClean II Ice and Water
1 Answer
The light on the outside door (where the ice/water dispenser is) won't turn off. It is dimmer than when you hit the 'light' button, but it stays on constantly when the door is shut. The 'light' button works and turns the bulb brighter, but when you turn it off, it just dims and doesn't go out. The light shuts off when the door is open and turns back on when its closed.

Hi
Reprogramming your refrigerator to only light up when the dispenser is in use saves energy and keepsyour house darker at night. The light is controlled using the buttons above the water dispenser mechanism.Press and hold the "Lock" or "Lock Controls" button for three seconds to activate the controls if they currently are locked.Tap the "Light" button to switch off the light.Press and hold the "Lock" button for another three seconds to lock the controls from further changes. The light now only comes on when the dispenser is active.
If the above procedure won't work then this will be the cause of a faulty switch. This light switch is an integrated part of the dispenser control circuit board. This will require you, or your service tech to replace the entire dispenser/ice maker control board. It will be located just behind the dispenser fascia, mounted on a bracket. the actual light switch circuit is mounted on this board.
Try this procedure:-
Shutdown the unit for five minutes. Simply unplug the unit for this length of time. This will reset the board, and possibly, fix this fault if it is not to severe. If the shutdown dose not correct the switch action, simply replace the dispenser/switch control circuit board.
Please get back to us if you have further query or else please accept the solution.
Thanks for contacting fixya.com

Water dispenser not working on Kenmore refrigerator


Is it making any noise when you press the flapper if no then change water inlet valve

Ice maker does not make ice. water will dispense thru door and I replace the water filter every six months.


I had the same problem. There is air in the line therefore you need to dispense about 3 gallons of water from the dispenser and that should slove the problem. Also, take a clean soft cloth or paper iowel and wipe the ice make sensor (if you have one) and the reciever. There is one on each side of slightly below the ice maker. Should be a flashing or steady red light ....follow the flashing red light to the other side.

Ice and water won't come out dispenser


here is link to your owners manual subzero.com
and here are instructions for using the lock feature..

LOCK For Models 685 and 695, the lock feature is used to prevent unintended ice and water dispensing. When the dispenser is locked, all key pads on the glasswell are deactivated to allow cleaning or to prevent small children from using the dispenser. To activate the lock feature, hold down the LIGHT key pad on the glasswell until the key pad lights flash once and the red LOCK icon is illuminated (approximately five seconds). The lights will remain in the state they were in before the lock feature was activated. To deactivate the lock feature, hold down the LIGHT key pad until the key pad lights flash once and the red LOCK icon is no longer illuminated (approximately five seconds). The lights will remain in the state they were in before the lock feature was deactivated.

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.
