Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

No pressure to water dispenser, no water to ice maker. We moved the fridge and the ended up with cracks in the water valves. We replaced those and found a crack in filter housing, bypassed that and still just have a trickle from the despenser, and no flow to the ice maker. We don't have a diagram for water lines to help solve problem.

Fridge's water dispenser continues to run


Hello John;

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

Neither your ice maker or water dispenser work off your main control board.

There is only one reason that the ice maker will not fill and you water dispenser does not shut off immediately after the contact switch disengages.

Your problem is low water pressure. You have a bad water valve.
After time the water valve seals fail, metal form the water line or corrosion plugs the water supply valve. You need at least 60 PSI water pressure to shut off the water dispenser solenoid valve and at least 60 PSI to open the ice maker water valve and fight the long fill tubing resistance.


Check - Pull your unit out where you can get behind it. Turn power off to your unit. Turn the water valve off. With towels under the unit water connection and a large bucket ready, disconnect the water supply line. With the water valve shut off you will probably get a steady stream of low water flow. The valve is bad. If not, open the water valve with the water line in the bucket. Is the water flow 60 PSI? Probably not.

Use a hair dryer to completely dry the solenoid valve and electrical area before you plug your unit back in

You need to replace the valve.

Before you do the above. Just in case you move your unit check for a bend or closure in the water line.

Water leaking from Icemaker fill tube near the back wall


It probably is not the water valve. More likely it is the ice maker itself. Nothing else in the machine controls the flow of water to the ice maker except the ice maker itself. It is recommended that both the ice maker and the water valve needs to be replaced when trouble such as this.

My ice maker has stopped producing ice - I have a whrlpool fridge freezer


Causes are:
1. Check shut off arm- If it fails to move due to lot stored ice cubs, remove some quantity of ice cubs.
2. Check the water pressure. Due to lack of water, it may stopped producing ice.
3.Check freezer temp: must be around 5 degree.
4.Check water hose has no leak. due to scarcity of water, ice maker could stop making ice cubes.
5. If water valve defective ice cube could not be made. To check the valve please follow this step.
Locate your ice maker, remove the ice bucket. Pull the coveroff the end of the ice maker. Locate the holes "V" and "L". Take a paper clip(jump clip) and tape. Straight the clip and put tape in middle. Hold the tapedside and insert the clip into "V" and "L". This sends the power to watervalve.If water goes into ice maker, water valve is good.Hope, is it helpful?

Water dispenses very slowly on Fridge

Your water line could be frozen in the door. You can disconnect the line at the bottom before it goes into the door at the bottom hinge. Push the dispenser button and see if it comes out there. If it does, leave the door open till it thaws.

If it doesn't come out there disconnect it at the water inlet valve and see if it comes out there. The valve could be bad.

A strainer before the inlet valve can also get stopped up restricting flow.

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.

Ice maker is not filling w water. water does come


The ice maker likely needs replaced however it could also be the fill valve. If you have the ability to locate the valve at the end of the fill hose (usually bottom right when looking at the back of the fridge) it will have 2 solonoids with electical connectors on them. Swap the connectors and press the water dispenser paddle. This should fill the icemaker. If it does, the valve is fine and the icemaker is bad.

In door water and ice cube not working


Water dispenser is a simple touch switch in door energizing a solenoid water valve behind ventilation grate above refrigerator. Water tube runs down into and ends at ice dispenser chute. Should hear solenoid click at top of fridge when activate water touch switch. Can unhook discharge side of solenoid valve temporarily to prove water output. If water dispenser tube acts blocked it could be frozen where it ends-look up the hole at the bottom of refrigerator control buttons.
Ice maker is totally different system. No clicking when push ice button but ice in bulk tray may mean the simplest of malfunctions: Ice bin not pushed in the last half inch if ice auger not lined up with drive pegs. There are hidden switches behind ice bin that need to be engaged or nothing will happen in the ice maker: no auger noise, no clicking, no new ice making. Ice bin will be flush with sheet metal if it is in the right spot. Also plastic juice rack won't hang properly if ice bin not pushed in all the way.

Kitchen aid superba fridge - ice maker not working .. water dispencer is


The refrigerator has a duel water valve, one for the ice-maker and one for the water dispenser (if equipped). The valve that the ice-maker relies on may be bad, or it could be the ice-maker itself. 
Another thing that could cause it would be the temperatures in the freezer. The ice-maker will not call for water until it reaches under 15 degrees. In addition, check the water tube behind the ice-maker to make sure it is not frozen, blocking more water from entering. The water does not go to the ice-maker or thru the filter unless the ice-maker turns on the water valve.

NO WATER OR ICE AT DOOR OR IN ICE MAKER


This is Gene's solution not mine, for a Ge fridge.
Assuming the ice dispenser works fine, the first thing I would check is the water filter, then the water inlet valve on the back of the fridge.

If the water filter is more than a year old it will cause restriction to the water flow.

Locate the water inlet valve on the back of the fridge. Remove the wires from the blue solenoid and check for 120V coming to the solenoid while the water dispenser lever is depressed.

If there is 120V then the water inlet valve has to be replaced.
