Re: Frigidaire Gallery Fridge
If the compressor is running, you could have a leak in the system. some units uses steel in their tubings and if this steel tubes have been wet when you used it before, then corrosion and rust would eat it up and you did not use it for a while then it would likely to have a leak in those parts.

this could be one or two problems :
fridge door that dispenser is in is not shutting all the way any longer and the safety switch is not allowing anything to come out of dispenser , or the valves in the bottom of fridge are bad (16 years it's time to go too) these valves are not expensive and not hard to replace , just remember to turn water supply off 1st see your local or internet parts supplier to obtain them
Sounds like a plugged water filter, assuming the water is turned on to the fridge. If you have a manual, refer to the section about water filters. The filter is usually accessible from the front of the fridge at the bottom....requires about a 1/2 turn counter-clockwise. Some units require that the water be turned off first but not all.
If you do not hear a click when activating the dispenser, there could be an issue with the water solenoid (water valve) that opens and closes when you use the water dispenser....agai...check the manual if at all possible.
Locate the defrost timer and rotate the dial a small amount clockwise. If the compressor starts the timer should be replaced. If the compressor does not start check the temperature control. It may be bad, if it is bad try jumpering the thermostat wires. If it starts and runs the thermostat is bad. Replace the thermostat.
