Water in the door not cold

When I called LG they said the water reservoir was only 32 oz. so I'd only get that much cold water at a time. That sounds wrong to me.

Re: water in the door not cold

The water in the door does not really get that cold. The reservoir is located on the door, under the bottom shelf. The cover doesn't allow the coils to get that cold so the water in them doesn't get that cold. What you can do is take off the shelf, pop off the 2 screw covers and screws. Remove the cover and put drill some holes in the cover. Space them out, make it neat and it will look natural. This will allow the air to get to the coil and chill the water. I know the factory is looking at it, but no word on a change that is coming.

Re: water in the door not cold

My owners Manuel says if water is not cold dispense ice first LOL
you could capture the water line before it goes in the filter and put a coil of tube some ware in the fridge.

We cleaned out our sub zero yesterday so the door was open for a long time. Now the water dispenser is not dispensing cold water at all.

Please tell me you cut the power to the fridge before leaving the doors open. Assuming you did I would have
to say it's going to take awhile before the water in the reservoir gets cold. I don't work on a lot of Sub-Zeros
but if I had to guess I would say that's it. Give it some time before getting water. See what happens. I can tell
you personally no body likes working on them.

No cold water


Most refrigerators with a water dispenser have a reservoir (tank) to chill the water before it gets to the dispenser. This tank is typically behind the crisper bins so the water should be the same temperature as the refrigerator. The water may start out room temperature but should be cold by the time you have filled 1/2 a glass or so.

Saying all that, there are a few newer models out there that have reduced the cost of the refrigerator by eliminating the reservoir. If you take the crisper drawers out and look behind them and do not see a tank or coil of tubing then you do not have chilled water.

I hope this helps clarify.

Water pressure is at a trickle in door dispenser on fridge. filter is clean and mounted properly.

Check the water reservoir in the rear of the fresh food compartment. It may be frozen. If so, there may be an issue with the "damper control assembly" (located in the upper left side of the fresh food compartment) that allows cold air from the freezer compartment into the fresh food compartment. This cold air works its way down to the reservoir (and perhaps other items) and freezes the water inside the reservoir, which disallows regular flow of water at your external dispenser.

Contact an appliance service company.

ZFSB26DRESS water runs warm and freezer not staying cold.

It sounds like the condenser coils , the coils by the compressor , need cleaned badly . This (and the compressor cooling fan) , can cause the compressor to cut off on overload (due to the heat) , thereby not circulation refrigerant thru out the freezer coils .
The water line goes from inside the freezer door ( cold ) , under the refrig ( warm ) , then to the inside refrig water reservoir ( cold ) . After that , you should get cold water , until the reservoir is drained of cold water .

LG lrfd22850/lrfc22750 water from door dispenser lukewarm. how do i adjust water temperature to make it colder??

Hi. The only way to adjust the water temp is to adjust the thermostat inside the fresh food section. Get a thermometer and make sure the temperature is around 34 degrees.
I hope this helps you.

Water leak from dispenser

The reservoir inside has to be replaced. After numerous calls to LG, I finally got the LG Mobile Service Tech to service it, and the water reservoir has been completely redesigned....can you say "design flaw?" Now, since the new "tube" has replaced the "reservoir," I have little green things floating in my filtered water! I hate LG products.

Problem with water flow in LG LRBC22544 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

Sounds like you have excess pressure building up in the water system. Is the water dispensor working? If not it sounds like you have a frozen line somewhere or the valve in the door is not working to allow the water to dispence.

Monogram refrigerator side by side

Robert, it almost sounds like your water reservoir is freezing some. This is located in the back of the lower section of the refrigerator behind the drawers. You can also check to make sure the water lever is making the switch and calling for water. The next time this happens, take a hair dryer to the water reservoir and go over it lightly back and forth. See if it makes the difference. back.
