How can i turn off the water function on the door but not the ice, the water line keeps leaking on the back of the frig


When I had this problem the water was coming from the top right rear where the water tube feeds the ice maker. The water line INSIDE the frig that feeds the ice maker occasionally freezes up causing an obstruction which causes the water to leak out the rear. This can only happen when the icemaker activates the water feed. You can remove the tube fitting without fear because the valve that feeds water through the line is at the bottom rear of the unit. If the line is frozen inside I remove the ice bin and tray and use a hair dryer to melt the ice.
I have a similar problem with the condenser fan making a tapping/clacking noise which is also a result of ice building up on that. Wish I had a different frig but for now the hair dryer will have to do.

LG refrigerator won't dispense water any more


The water line is freezing in the door due to deteriorated insulation. The only fix I have found to work on my fridge was to defrost the inside door with a blow dryer. Then place a weedeater replacement line (the orange 10" or so size you find at Lowes' or Home Depot) up through the dispenser nozzle, If the line only travels about 3-4 inches up the nozzle, then ice is still in the tube. Blow dry it until you are able to get water to dispense. After the tube is ice-free, place the weedeater line up throuth the dispenser nozzle leaving about 1/8" sticking out. The dispenser will still work with the line stuck in it. The dispenser will probably freeze again in about 8 hours, But all you need to do each time this happens is to pull the weedeater line out, dispense the water to unclog the ice, and place the weedeater line back in the nozzle. I have been using this method for about a week now and it works great. My GE Side-by-side is also 4 years old and this seems to be a problem with all of them. There is a part you can order to fix the problem, but I have heard it may not work.

The fridge has lg amounts of water collecting in the bottom of the main compartment. Is this a defrost problem,blocked line or?


Good day,
With limited information, if one, you are talking about the fresh food side, and two, the machine has water in the door, it may well be the water reservoir tank, behind the crispers or it's fittings are leaking.

As a temporary test, at the rear of the machine is the dual water valve that feeds the ice maker, and the water in the door.
There are 2 plastic lines coming out of the water valve. Unscrew the larger one ( have plenty of towels around to collect any backfeed). Leave disconnected for now as long as the valve does not leak water.
As well, unplug the two wire plug that feeds that side of the valve. You'll still get ice, but no water in the door.
Test for results.

We have a jenn-air jfc2087hrs (french door model) and the water pressure from the internal water dispenser is very low. the line has plenty of pressure.


If your ice maker is making full size cubes then it should one of 2 problems.
The water valve on the bottom back of the machine is a dual valve. One side feeds the ice maker, the other side feeds the water supply.
1. The dual water valve. is going bad. The water side is malfunctioning.
The dual valve must be replaced.
2. Your model should have filters for the water dispenser, and need replaced.
Try changing the filters first.

The water solinoid is not sending water to my ice tray


Had the same problem. As long as the ice machine is still moving, meaning its working but just no water is getting to the ice tray.  order part #2205762 valve, solenoid and change it out.  It is not hard to do if you pay attention to how you take the old one out.

Water Dispenser with mind of it's own


one test is too turn off your ice maker and it will stop...you have a bad diode on the water line and are getting line feed from the ice maker...

to fix it you will need a new diode
#5303918287 DIODE KIT
#5304418384 DIODE KIT
the parts store will get you the correct one with a model and serial number of the refrigerator

let me know if it helps
