No Water going in to the fridge

Hi Norm,

Most fridges don't need a motor to run in order to dispense water. A simple on / off solenoid on the water line (same for the ice maker) that makes a click when changing from off to on and on to off is usually all anyone hears (the ice maker makes rumbling sounds and you can hear ice falling into the bin - too).

Check for ice. If it has a maker and it is making ice, the problem could be a defective water dispenser switch, solenoid or other circuit component or wire. If no ice, I'd suspect a filter or water supply issue.

Make sure the filter is fully inserted and twisted into place. Many filters have marks to align when 1) inserting and 2) to let you know when it is installed correctly. When sure it is installed correctly - try to dispense water again. Many fridges will dispense water without a filter. Check your manual before trying this though! If not working still, remove the filter and try to dispense water. If you're able to dispense water, the problem is either the installation of the filter or the filter itself. Try to re-install it correctly. Try to dispense water again.

If it still doesn't work - call the plumber back and ask why there's no water. Or - try this yourself:

Locate the point of attachment to the domestic water supply that the plumber used. There should be a valve to turn the water on and off. If off, turn ON. Try to dispense water again.

If that doesn't work - check to see if the fridge has pinched, kinked or crushed the water supply line. You may need to move the fridge forward to gain access to the water line and connection point on the fridge. Repair or replace the line as needed and route in such a way that moving the fridge in or out will not cause it to damage the line again.

Good luck!

I have a water tank behind the top drawer of my LG. Itseems to be empty I have checked the supply to the fridge and it is fine. I removed the filter and pressed the lever, water comes out. put filter

Sounds like a problem with filter. Was it having problems before installing new filter. Filter may be in backwards. I recommend reinstalling the filter

Water dispenser on Frigidaire FRS6R5E refrigerator is not working but ice maker is working fine.when i open the filter area & press the water dispenser button water comes out from that area & when i put in...

At the back cover of the fridge you will find a double electric valve. The easy way to find valve is to follow water supply tube to your fridge
Unplug fridge and check with multimeter if one of the coils burned out and should be replaced. Make sure you close water shut off valve before removing solenoid. Good luck

Changed water filter on fridge ans now nothing comes out

Did you follow the filter instructions inside the box? Usually you have to pre-soak them for about an hour.

Some like Brita and Pur only say 5-10 min, but I usually do it for 15.

How long did you try to run water through the new filter? Its not an instant job.

Most fridges come with a "reset" button as well. Mine has one at the top near the door, even though the filter goes in the bottom of the Fridge.

Check your owners manual, make sure you put in the correct size filter too!

Hope this helps....

Ge fridge- water dispenser in door wont work yet ice maker does.

There are a few reasons for this. Most common, is the water filter. After a period of time(literage usage) the filter eventually blocks up.Flow will not continue until a new one is installed. On occasion, the water line in the freezer ices up, but doesn't often happen. If so, you will need to defrost freezer until pipe is no longer iced up(set freezer to about -20 degrees celsius).or very possible, water solenoid at the back of the fridge has gone faulty.You will need help with this check,There will be 2 valves. Very possibly it will be the RHS one at the back. Switch water supply off at the back then go to the water solenoids at the back of the fridge.and disconnect the one pipe on the solenoid that leads into the fridge. Open fridge water tap again and ask member to quickly press water dispenser lever.Note if water squirts out for that brief period.. If not, reconnect pipe again then do the same disconnection to the second solenoid. If no water comes out then,(make sure water is open), then the water valve needs to be replaced.

Sounds like a plugged water filter, assuming the water is turned on to the fridge. If you have a manual, refer to the section about water filters. The filter is usually accessible from the front of the fridge at the bottom....requires about a 1/2 turn counter-clockwise. Some units require that the water be turned off first but not all.

If you do not hear a click when activating the dispenser, there could be an issue with the water solenoid (water valve) that opens and closes when you use the water dispenser....agai...check the manual if at all possible.

Water dispenser not working

I am currently experiencing the same problem. It happen when I pressed the rapid cool button on the inside of the fridge and the temperature went down to 36 degree F. I assume that my water line is frozen. As soon as we use up some of the food in the fridge, I'm going to clean out the fridge and let the temperature rise, hopefully thawing the blockage. This is the only thing that I can think of.

Ice maker not working

So your not getting water from the dispenser either??? Yes the water filter can be the source of your problem. Let me know if the water is coming from the dispenser.

Water dispenser in fridge

Possible problems could a bad water valve (dual valve), bad micro switch which is activated by pressing the button for water to come out. On some models the bracket that holds the micro switch could be broken not allowing the button to activate.
