    Too vague, no brand name ... check that the water supply is good or the filter is not plugged up - see if there might be a fuse for that system. JOAT

Be certain thre is water flowing to the unit. Typically there is a 1/4" water line run from a water pipe; where the line attaches to the pipe there typically is a saddle valve used to first punch a small hole in the pipe and also to then act as a shut-off valve. THis valve will have a small T-handle; just be certain it is open 2-3 revolutions should do. If this valve is open look for an obstruction with-in the line...kinked line or inlet filter plugged. I'd start there first.
I hope this may have helped,
Tom

No water in water dispensor


Don't forget that your dual water control valve has two sides. One side is for the ice maker and other side is for water dispenser. The water dispenser side may have recently failed causing water to not enter water filter area or dispenser, Thanks Sea Breeze

FRIGIDAIRE FRS26ZSG - WATER DISPENSER


Is there an overflow module that connects the icemaker to the water dispenser? If you are still getting ice, it is probably just extra water.

Water is not coming out of the water dispenser. The ice dispenser is working though. I see this question posted alot, so must be a common problem, but I don't see any answers. I have a Kenmore side...


For water not dispensing problem:----------

There possibility is ice blockage in the water fill tube. There is a tube from which the water runs and enters the water dispenser. If this tube is blocked then water will not flow, when you depress the water dispenser paddle. The tube needs to be defrosted, by using hair dryer. This procedure melts the ice collected in the tube and water starts running again. But if water fill tube is completely clear and no ice blockage or any other blockage. Then other possibility is water valve .This water valve is for letting the water. The main water valve the back of the fridge section. This main valve lets the water enter the refrigerator.This water valve is a twin valve.This valve has two tubes in it.One for water dispenser and one for ice maker chamber.The one side of valve is working, but other side of the valve is not working.The valve is got stuck in one position, so ice maker side is working, but water dispenser side is not working.--------

The valve is not a costly part and can be easily replaced.-----------------


then You can get required parts from online sites like: --- www.repairclinic.com or from searspartsdirect online site.

----------- This should help. Thanks.Helpmech.

Refrigerator about 5 years old. stopped dispensing water twice in last 12 months. Ice and crushed ice works perfectly. No water for last 2 months. Whats up?


You have two points where you can check the dispenser water. At the rear where the water supply comes in is the water inlet valve. If you disconnect the dispenser water line and then see if the water comes out when you try the dispenser. You should hear the valve work when you try the dispenser. If you don’t hear it there is a dispenser actuator switch problem. If you do hear it but water doesn’t work here there is a valve or water supply problem. If it's normal, disconnect it at the bottom of the freezer door and try again.If it's normal here it may be frozen in the door. If this is the case open the door till it thaws. A blanket over the opening will prevent thawing of all the food.

It makes no ice cubes, but water still comes through door dispenser. Why? There appears to be no water getting to the ice making mechanism, however water is still coming out the door dispenser.


Is the freezer cold enough? Should be close to 10 degrees.
Is there water or ice in the ice mold? If not put water in it and see if it dumps the ice after it’s frozen. If there is ice, lift the cut off arm and let it drop to see if it will start.
If it does dump the ice but don’t refill with water.
Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

I just replaced ice maker assembly because of broken plastic which holds drive gear. Now the new ice maker will not fill up with water. Water dispenser works fine.
