Side by side, symbol for the opened door blinks- door closed

I have a side by side refrigerator from whirlpool ( ice and water dispenser ), not sure for the name ( in romania where i bought it, the name is 20 ru d3 la+ ) and i have one question.
Sometimes the icon that lightens up when the door is opened lightens up and makes a click even when the door is closed. It happened already 3 times and i don`t know what that means.
Please help.

Ice maker not working


Ice makers have a heating element to thaw the inlet and allow water to flow into them perhaps the heater is broken and it can't get water to make ice. Check the hopper to be sure it has ice in it. If it does check it for obstructions from the hopper to the door.

Water and ice maker not working line frozen everything frozen even when you turn it down is it the termostat or what


It sounds like your ICE Dispenser door is stuck partway open. Defrost the access door, ice bucket and crusher then check the Ice Dispenser door to be sure it fully closes, otherwise cold air will constantly drift out and freeze the whole mechanism.

The outside door water does not work


Can I assume the ice and water are activated by two different switches? The ice switch activates the motor that dispenses ice. The water switch activates a solenoid that opens to dispense water. If you can, find the solenoid and make sure it's not stuck closed (tapping it with a screwdriver handles usually help persuade it a bit). I would tap the solenoid while pushing the water button. Listen for the solenoid to activate. If you can't activate the solenoid, find the switch and depress it with a small screwdriver. Usually, these switches are just simple little microswitches that need a little cleaning and coaxing

Ice and water stopped dispensing


some models of this refrig have a lcok out feature on the dispenser look for a padlock symbol on the dispenser console and make sure its unlocked. if it s not locked out you may have a broken switch bracket behind the console cover. when you press the levers listen very closely and you should hear a click noise letting you know the dispenser switch has activated. Let me know if you have any further questions thanks Peyton

Ice machine makes ice but doesn't dispense when the lever is pres


I would check for an electric "flap" that opens & closes when ice lever is depressed. My GE has one and it has been fouled before causing the ice to be stuck inside the door. Hope this helps!

Side by side refrigerator


The ice maker is not producing ice or not enough ice

 Refrigerator connected to a water supply and the supply
shutoff valve turned on?
Connect refrigerator to water
supply and turn water shutoff valve fully open.
 Kink in the water source line? A kink in the line can reduce
water flow. Straighten the water source line.
 Ice maker turned on? Make sure wire shutoff arm or switch
(depending on model) is in the ON position.
 New installation? Wait 24 hours after ice maker installation
for ice production to begin. Wait 72 hours for full ice
production.
 Large amount of ice recently removed? Allow 24 hours for
ice maker to produce more ice.
 Ice cube jammed in the ice maker ejector arm?
Remove ice from the ejector arm with a plastic utensil.
 Reverse osmosis water filtration system connected to
your cold water supply?
This can decrease water pressure

OR
The water dispenser will not operate properly

 Freezer door closed completely? Close the door firmly. If it
does not close completely, see “The doors will not close
completely.”
 Refrigerator connected to a water supply and the supply
shutoff valve turned on?
Connect refrigerator to water
supply and turn water shutoff valve fully open.
 Is the water pressure at least 30 psi? The water pressure to
the home determines the flow from the dispenser. See “Water
Supply Requirements.”
 Kink in the home water source line? Straighten the water
source line.
 New installation? Flush and fill the water system.
 Water filter installed on the refrigerator? The filter may be
clogged or incorrectly installed.
 Is a reverse osmosis water filtration system connected to
your cold water supply?
