Filtered water not dispensing

I have 2 problems. I've turned the settings to it's lowest and the fridge is still very cold which led to freezing the filter and not allowing water to flow through. I adjusted the thermostat and seems to have helped but the water is still not flowing. I think something was damaged behind the filter when it froze. I've changed the filter but no water still.

Re: filtered water not dispensing

Pull the filter and have someone barely turn on the water to see if it's even making it to the filter. Then check all lines for kinks. Then there are two water valves operated by solenoids near the compressor compartment. One is for the icemaker, and should only engage when it calls for water on it's own cycle. The other one is for the water. Have someone push the button and check for voltage at the connector. If you're getting this check to see if you hear a humming noise from valve when engaged. If not, the solenoid is shot and you need a new valve. Or if you hear it engage but are not getting water through the valve, unhook the exit and put a length of hose on it into a bucket to check this. Hope this helps.

Fridge too cold!

don't forget that just turning down your fridge temp dose not mean your problem might be over yet. the freezer setting may also be too high & that will affect your fridge temp as well. i set both my control settings to around 50% of what is on the scale & that works perfect for my 7 yr old fridge. also, very important, is make sure the freezer portion is going through it's full defrost cycles, or it will freeze the upper portion inside the fridge. you should not have any frost build up in your fridge, nor should you have any in your freezer. that's why they call them FROST FREE. try the slow temp decrease over a period of a few days & hopefully that will work for you. good luck.

Model 253.54673304 water is not dispensing from is ok. both circuit boards were filter installed .ice is being made and dispensed.all 3 motor are working, but no water from dispenser.

You replaced motors? Did you replace the water solenoids on the back of the Fridge also?Sounds like you have either a wire or 2 disconnected from your cold water solenoid in back of the box, or your refrigerator compartment is freezing at the bottom and blocking your water flow to the cold water valve. Your cold water tank is located at or near the back and bottom of your refrigerator.

Liquids frozen in refrigerator, no water from water dispenser

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Maytag French Door MFD2561HEB water dispenser not working

We had the same issues with the water freezing and called a technician out. He added some extra insulation installed around the water lines inside the refrigerator and we also keep our frig at 40 degrees Fahrenheit, slightly above the manufacturers default setting. Hope this helps.

1 is the lowest setting. And if you want to make it really cold in your LG then turn it to the highest number. Might back off the fridge setting to 2. Do you have two t-stat's one for freezer and one for fresh food compartment?

Water Dispenser freezes

I have a 3 year old GE GSL25 refrigerator with the water/ice dispenser on the freezer door. Even when setting the freezer at 2 and turning the fridge's lower drawer to the warmer "cheese" setting, the water dispenser line would freeze every few weeks. If you have this problem, first verify that the water filter (back of the fridge) is not clogged and that water flows from the water line at the bottom left corner of the freezer door (disconnect and press water delivery dispenser-see owners manual).
I used the hair dryer recommendation to unfreeze the line by heating the flat area of the freezer door directly behind the water dispenser area (~10 min did it). The trick to keep if from freezing up again involved buying a cheap foam sleeping bag mattress (~1/3 inch or 1 cm thick) made of a polyurethane foam (pretty dense). I cut it to match the flat area of the freezer door behind the water dispenser and taped it to the door with packing tape. For the past 3 weeks (even with freezer at #4 setting), my water is flowing freely. Personally, I think this solves a product defect with insufficient insulation in the freezer door near the dispenser water line.
