Question about KitchenAid Superba Architect KSCS25INSS Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

KSCS25FJSS01 - The water dispenser line from the solenoid is cracked about 18 inches from the solenoid, before it enters the back of the fridge. It seems easy enough to fix as long as i can get some 5/16 hose... but what puzzles me is why the water enters the fridge through a grommetted hole and seemingly comes back out the same hole, before it travels under the fridge to the door for the dispenser supply... is there a hidden coupling inside the fridge?

Good day,
The line runs from the solenoid, into the fresh food compartment where a cooling tank is located behind the crispers, where it is precooled so your dispenser doesn't feed you warm water.
It then comes back out and travels to the door.

Everything normal on my GE Profile Model PFSF6PKWBBB French door bottom freezer refridgerator except the water dispenser just quit dispensing water. Is it frozen? How do I fix it?


The paddle that you push the glass against to dispense water activates a microswitch. Sometimes this switch can break off it's mount and drop away from it's intended position. The microswitch operates a solenoid valve near where the water line enters the back of the fridge. Then there's the wiring in between them. The water line doesn't go through the freezer. It runs through the refrigerator in a coil of tubing then into the door of the dispenser. Check the paddle switch, the water solenoid and the wiring and you'll find the reason it doesn't work

My GE Adora side by side makes ice but the water dispenser barely dispenses.


Did you recently move the fridge? One possibility is that the supply line in the back of the fridge is kinked. Usually it is coiled so you can move the fridge out and back damage but if it gets kinked, it would limit the water supply like a hose does when kinked. Also, the supply line is usually tapped from under the sink. Make sure the valve that supplies the line (usually 1/4 inch line) is fully opened. If that fails to help, then you're back to the solenoid valve for water that is not fully opening. Should give a solid clunk when actuated. G

What to do if water does not dispense from water dispenser


A couple of things to check: If equipped with an automatic ice maker - is ice being made? If so, the water supply to the fridge is OK. If not, look for a problem in the supply line (is it kinked, crushed, or is the water shut off)? Is the filter clogged? Some fridges will pass water w/o a filter installed - see if your will by removing the filter and try to get water from the fridge.

If ice is being made, the problem lies with the water "circuit" in the fridge (the solenoid, water lines, filter etc.). When water is dispensed from the fridge into a glass, a small solenoid valve on the drinking water line opens to allow water to flow. Many times, you can hear the "click" of the solenoid valve both when it is opening (on) and closing (off). If you used to hear it, and now no longer can, it indicates a problem with the electrical circuit that is activated when you try to dispense water. This electrical circuit consists of the switch, wiring and solenoid coil itself. The wiring will seldom fail - but those parts that physically move (the switch and solenoid) are very likely candidates for failure. You should obtain the schematics for your fridge and get a volt meter to troubleshoot the switch and solenoid. Of course, you could purchase both the switch and solenoid and replace them one at a time; and have a reasonable expectation that one will probably solve the problem.

Good luck!

Ice maker has stopped making ice


Check the ice maker to see if there are ice cubes in the ice maker. If so, there is a problem with the ice maker heater and / or motor. You may be able to rebuild the ice maker by replacing defective parts, but it might be easier to replace it as a whole unit instead. If there is no ice present, it is likely a problem with the ice maker water lines / solenoid.

There are usually two solenoid valves and tubing systems for these types of fridges. One actuates on demand for water whenever requested, and the other operates automatically to make ice cubes until the ice cube reservoir is full.

Carefully push/pull the fridge away from the wall.

Unplug the fridge from the outlet.

Shut off the water supply to the fridge.

Remove access cover (usually the on the bottom) from the back of the fridge. Follow the tube that comes from the top of the fridge (for the ice maker) down to the bottom of the fridge.

Inspect visually for sources of the leak on tubing and related parts. Carefully check by hand for leaks in areas not readily visible - including the back sides of all the tubing, too. There may be sharp edges that can cut if not paying attention. If a leak is found where the tubing connects to other parts, you may be able to simply remove the tube and cut it back an inch or so if there is enough slack.

It may require that some special fittings and parts be obtained to reconnect and some compression type parts are designed for single use. If this is the case, gather the parts and bring them to a local hardware store for assistance obtaining replacements.

If a solenoid valve is found to be the culprit, due to a crack, etc. a trip to an appliance parts store will be required - unless able to purchase online. Part prices can vary widely , depending on the source.

Once replacement parts have been secured, reconnect after disconnecting power & water supply lines. When satisfied with the installation, reconnect power and water lines and test.

Carefully slide the fridge back into position - taking care to not crush the power or water lines.

Water leaks from dispenser


Bad water filter or weak water inlet solenoid. Water line to back of fridge goes to inlet solenoid valve. Check it first. Would help to know the manufacture date. If it has a filter at bottom of fridge it will cause leaks and low pressure to dispenser if not changed each year.

Icemaker is not working nor is the water dispenser


Hi, did you check your water supply for pressure? Sometimes buildup in the line causes this. Just take the supply line loose from the back of the fridge with a 1/2 inch wrench and see if u have water. If not clean the valve and line. If that was not the problem, it's the solenoid valve on the back of the fridge.

Frigidaire FRS26ZSH no water at dispenser or ice maker


  1. I would remove both solenoids (one at a time-not to mix them up) pay attention and mark all parts- try cleaning or replacing them. Most are fairly common supply items. Paying attention to wiring and proper installation is important during re assemble. JOHN-LA
