    This refrigerator doesn't even have a pump, per our repairman.

I had the same problem and it appear the cable set between the freezer door and refrigerator body has some wires broken. The cable is in the bottom right hinge. You can try moving the cable with fingers at the same time you're pushing the water lever.

While this is not going to be a permanent fix, at least it confirm where the problem is.

    Correction to my previous comment: The cable is in the LEFT hinge... not right.

  • Mara1234 Dec 01, 2007

    In my case I'm 100% sure this is the problem: Every time I need water I just need to reach the wire set and push it into some certain direction to make the water flow. Next thing I'll try is to replace the defective piece of cable. I'll post back if this did permanently fix it.

  • Mara1234 Dec 01, 2007

    Fixed it! One wire (pink color) was break apart just where the cable bends when opening/closing the freezer door. Rejoined the cables with a simple crimp on connector and water is flowing again! :-)

sounds like the switch tabs are broken off of the switch bracket behind the dispenser front cover. you should hear a distinct click when you oush in on either lever for ice or water if not then that bracket is broken.  if you'll look on the very bottom of disp cover you will see 2 slots insert a small flat blade screw driver and pry the cover off then you'll see a white bracket with switches and wiring on it look at the black switches and most likely the little plastic posts that hold them on are broken. the bracket is inexpensive and very easy to repalace. if you have any urhter questions just ask thanks peyton...

Ice and water dispenser

Has someone pressed the lock button on the front of the fridge just above the dispenser, next to the crushed & not crushed ice button, if so there is also an unlock button next to it.
