Re: water solenoid

If that's your's one place:

Do you get ice and no water? Or neither?

Might be the solenoid or the switch. There is a diagram on the back of the box...use a multtester to be sure.

Water is building up on bottom of fridge

If you have water build-up on the floor of the food compartment, or ice buildup on the floor of the freezer compartment, you are probably suffering from either a frost problem or from a clogged defrost drain.

Remove everything from your freezer, including all food and any shelves. Do not remove the icemaker (if installed.)
Look at and feel the panel covering the bottom or back of the freezer compartment. Is it thick with frost?
On top freezer models, are the holes in the top of the food compartment that lead to the evaporator choked with ice?
Is there ice forming on, or lots of water on the ceiling of the food compartment?
If the answer is yes to any of these questions, there's probably a defrost problem.
If you suspect a defrost problem, first remove any icemaker that may be installed. You will see a removable panel covering the entire back or bottom of your freezer compartment. There may be 6 to 10 or more screws holding it on. In some units there is a light socket attached to the panel; you'll see this arrangement most often in side-by-sides.

If you start to get an unusual buildup of ice in one particular spot in your freezer, especially beneath the icemaker, check for water leaks.
Water leaking onto the kitchen floor not traceable to one of the problems in Chapters 4 or 6 may be from a leak in the icemaker or door dispenser water system. Icemakers have a water solenoid valve mounted on the back of the fridge, usually behind the back bottom panel, and a water tube that leads straight up the back of the fridge to the icemaker. Door dispensers have a similar water solenoid valve with a water tube that leads beneath the fridge and into the door through a hollow hinge. If your fridge has both features, it's usually a dual water solenoid valve. It can be simple or not-so-simple to fix, but basically it's just a plumbing job.

Fridge/freezer leaks water

This is not very common. If you get water coming out of the ICE maker when you press the WATER dispenser, then the thing I would check first is the solenoid controlled water valve. It might be sending water out both legs at the same time. BUT if you have had work done on it lately, I would suspect that someone didn't get the electrical leads onto the control board correctly.

you either have a kinked water line, or a frozen one. There is a possibility that the solenoid isn't working.

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.

Make sure that the water filter is the right one and that it is pushed all the way in. If that is correct than There should be two solenoids located behind the fridge at the bottom one is for your ice and one for water. Unplug unit and test the water solenoid with an ohm meter across the two terminals if it ohms out or beeps than your solenoid is bad.

I have a rs21dcns fridge freezer. i'm having trouble getting water from the water dispenser and also having trouble setting the temperature control for my fridge.

The water stops flowing from the dispenser when the external water filter needs changing, stick a new filter and it should start working again, it sometimes takes a few minutes to clear the air after the filter change.
