If you are sure you are getting water to the filter, check the filter for any clogs. when you press the switch for the water in the front, do you hear a click where the water line hooks up to the fridge? if not, the solenoid for the water may be bad and needs replacement. if you do, there may be a clog at the screen in the solenoid. shut the water off (basement), disconnect the water line, and the solenoid is where the line hooks up. there are 4 screws that hold it on. unscrew it and check the screen for debris. if there is, clean it out. if not, and there is no clicking, replace the solenoid. you can but one here: www.partselect.com.

Water is frozzen in door


The word is that many fridge manufacturers didn't insulate enough in the freezer door. The easiest fix I found for this is get some styrofoam from the walls of a cheap cooler and tape it to the inside of the freezer side door right behind where the water and ice dispenser are located. It works faster if you turn off the fridge for a couple of hours to let the water line thaw first. Then it should remain unfrozen.

Hello:
It is very common to have the line in the freezer door freeze up. I would start there first. If that's not it then next step would be your water valve which is located in the back/bottom of the fridge. It is a dual valve( one side for ice maker the other for water dispenser). you can check that by taking off the front kick plate and on the bottom freezer door hinge you will see the line entering the door. Follow it towards the under the fridge and you will find a coupling. Disconnect it and see if there is any water coming out when you press actuator on the door .. If yes then its frozen if no your valve is Kaput.

Cheers

Water to door stopped. I replaced filter. Still no water to door.


the line could have froze in the door,or you have a bad water valve,go to the back of fridge,disconnect the water line and hit the dispenser to make sure it's the valve,if water comes out you know the line is iced up,if it is you can use a hair dryer and heat up the door where the bottom hindge is half way up the freezer door and hit the area where the ice dispenses out the door,

No Water from Door


Same problem with mine, no water, but could hear humming when pushing dispense lever. There is a coupler in the water line below the freezer door, I pulled it and opened it*, water came out when actuating the dispense lever. So it wasn't frozen between there and the wall, had to be frozen inside the freezer door. Solution? Turn off freezer side of the fridge and leave door open for an hour or two, voila, water in door again. *little blue coupler, push white collar in towards blue plastic to release line, push line back in all the way to replace it. This line has pressure only when dispensing water, and then not much pressure.

check the door in the dispenser if moisture is condensing and freezing so that the door won't open try manually popping the door open just before you attempt to dispense ice, maybe you'll get lucky, otherwise your going to have to get a technician to come and check the micro-switch for the dispenser

Several possibilities. Clogged water filter (can be eliminated if you dump the ice bucket..if it makes two more batches of ice it's not the filter). Frozen water container (behind lower refrigerator drawers) or bad fill valve behind the refrigerator where the water line goes in. Likeliest is water valve.

Final possibility is a frozen water line inside freezer door. This would NOT be desired nor would you be fixing it yourself. Good Luck.

Hotpoint fridge dispenser works on water but not ice


If the little green lites show up , you do not need a circuit board . If you get a hum or buzzing noise when pushing for CRUSHED ice , then the auger motor is frozen up . Remove the ice bin and use a hair dryer directly on the forks which turn the dispensor . The heat will transfer into the motor , defrosting the armature . Try closing the freezer door ocassionally and pushing the arm to test if forks turn .
