Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a Maytag RSW2400 Frig. I just replaced the Dual Water Valve kit.(12001415 kit) I have water going up the the back of the frig. but not into it.I tried to blow air through it but it seems to be clogged or there is a valve there. I had water up to that point so the new valve seems to be working.

Most likely reason water not dispensing out door 1) You can turn up the temp in the freezer to see if it thaws in a couple of days, 2) Turn on the dispenser light and leave it on, will thaw the line and keep it thawed, 3) the water tank is frozen in the fresh food side (you can defrost with a blow drier) 6) the fill valve went bad or plugged ( power to fill valve but not opening) ($50) 7) Micro switch went bad in the dispenser for the water side 8) Door switch bad 9) Install a heater kit to thaw the line and it will keep it thawed ($35) PN#1381601 10) You can replace the whole door if insulation gone bad in door ( $500 to $800) 11) a broken wire to the fill valve ( no power to fill valve ) 12) with GE refrigerator bad dispenser boards or control boards ($400 and $150) 13) plugged, faulty or incorrectly installed water filter let me know more about you problem and I can help..

How do i locate and replace a dual water valve on a jenn air jfi2589aep french frig ?

The dual water valves is located in the back of the refrigerator. You will have to remove the panel in the back of the fridge in order to access them. Use wire markers to mark the connectors to identify which commector goes where after replacing the valves.

Try this... unplug frig and take everything out, leave the doors open as well. let everything thaw out for at least 2 days. then plug in and see if water comes out. what we are trying to do is make sure that the water hasn't frozen inside the door. i seen this happen and it drove me crazy. try this because i want to save you money from guessing whats wrong and buying parts. if the water comes back on then let me know and i will find the kit you need to stop this problem

ok if the water still doen't come out then make sure you have enough water pressure going to the frig.

another problem could be a plugged water filter, you can try to put a new one (every 6 months recommend) to see if this corrects the problem

take off the connector at the water valve and see if there is any debris

if all fails the only thing left is the water valve itself

hope this was helpful

Where is the water inlet valve located on this model>>>I thought it would be back side, lower left near water hook up

Follow the water line from the wall to the frig, it normally goes to water filter first, from there to water valve located on right rear (in most cases) of frig. Just follow the plastic lines. Another way to find it is to follow the line from the ice maker back to the water valve.

There is no water coming out or ice being made in our maytag refrigerator. Model # MFI2266AEU

There is more than 1 possible problem. 1st, the water line could simply be frozen where is comes into the freezer compartment. If it is, shut down the frig, get the towels out and fill a spray bottle with hot water. remove the cover guard and sprau the daylights out of the incoming water line and you should be up and running when you turn the frig back on.

Otherwise, you have a clogged line and will need to replace it. The kits are readily available at Home Depot and Lowes and they aren't expensive. You just have to be "handy" and follow the directions in the kit.

Water dispenser will not work when lever is pressed. we had an intermittent problem with it before it stopped working altogather.I was going to look at it but was afraid to pop off the trim on the outside...

This could be a bad water valve in the frig. This frig has a double water valves. One for the ice maker and one for the water dispenser. It should be in the lower back. Where the water line goes in. You can check this valve easily. Find the double water valve on the frig. Turn off water supply to frig first. Swap the plastic water lines going from the water valve into the frig. Turn water supply on. Then see if the water dispenser works. Sometimes you will have to operate the water dispenser for a little while to get the air out of the line. If it works now then the problem is in the water valve solenoid and needs to be replaced.

Ice maker freezing up

If it is only the fill tube that is freezing up, or getting full of ice, than your water valve is leaking (letting drops of water thru to your ice maker and filling the icemaker fill tube up and freezing). If this is the case, replace the dual water valve (part # 1071263) located in the back of the refrigerator, just follow the water line from your wall into the refrigerator. Make sure you turn off the water to the refrigerator and also unplug it. The dual water valve is the one that has two water lines, one going to the icemaker and one going to the water dispenser. On this model, I think you only have one water valve. On some you have two, the primary water valve and a secondary water valve (the dual valve). If this is your case, I would highly recommend you replace both. As far as the Refrigerator side freezing things up, I think that is a whole different issue. Please post back.
