Solution found! I located manual on line. If anyone else has this problem, press the "lock" button three times in ten seconds! I'm a genius!

The water stopped coming out of the water dispenser and the ice maker will not make and drop ice. The line from the house to the fridge is not clogged, the lines to the icemaker do not appear clogged.

Sounds like someone accidentally locked you out. If you see a RED light lit above the touch pad.

To Lock Out Press the LOCK Touch Pad for 3-5 seconds. A Red light will appear above

the Touch Pad.

To Unlock

Press the LOCK Touch Pad for 3-5 seconds until the Red light above the

Touch Pad goes out.

Other possibilities:

Household water line valve is not open. -open valve

Freezer door is not closed-Close door tight

Ice & water filter cartridge is clogged-replace filter
Front filter not fully installed, if equipped-Push filter until you hear a CLICK. filter should be FLUSH with cabinet
Here is a link to the user manual.

Hope this helps

Unpluged the panel from ice maker . when i repluged it with the power on it start bringging ice out automaticly. now water dispener does no work . Is this an elctronic problem?

Check temp setting. Freezer temp in between -14 and +8*F. And fridge temp must be in between 38* and 46*F.
Make sure the dispenser is notlocked. Some models have a lock feature that deactivates the dispenser andcontrol buttons. The lock button is located on the dispenser front cover.This feature controls unintentional dispensing. Press the"Unlock" or "Locked" button to reactivate the dispenser andallow dispenser function. You may need to hold the button for2 to 3 seconds. A clogged or incorrectly installedwater filter will reduce the water flow to the water dispenser. Check for aproblem with the filter by removing the filter and operating the dispenser. Ifwater begins to flow, then the filter is either clogged or incorrectlyinstalled. A clogged filter will need to be replaced.

Thanks. Helpful?

Ice and water dispenser

Has someone pressed the lock button on the front of the fridge just above the dispenser, next to the crushed & not crushed ice button, if so there is also an unlock button next to it.
