Hi there,

Well first of all please follow the below steps -
1. Insert a glass into the water dispenser as if you wanted to get some water. Can you hear the pump running when you press the paddle with the glass? If so, that is a good sign. That means the electrical and mechanical parts are working. The problem is most likely a blockage somewhere in the system.
2. Check the water filter. It is usually located in the back of the refrigerator under a plastic cap that screws off. You may want to move objects in the refrigerator away from where the filter is, because a little water might spill out when you take off the cap. Pull the filter out with your hand and examine it. Does it look dirty or contaminated? Has it been along time since you last changed it? If so, you might want to try replacing the filter with a new one. If a filter is dirty enough, it could prevent water from passing through. In such a case, you would likely have noticed a gradual drop in the output of water before it stopped completely. If this is not the problem, continue to the next step.
3. Get a hairdryer and plug it into an outlet that is close enough to allow you to use it inside the refrigerator.
4. Open the door and locate the area directly behind the water dispenser. You may need to remove some items from the surrounding shelves. Very often, the problem is that the water in the lines in the door have frozen solid. This is especially likely if you have been away for a few days in the winter, and you turned down the heat. The combination of the lower temperature, and the fact the the dispenser is not being used, can cause the lines to freeze up.
5. Turn on the hairdryer and set it to medium heat. Slowly wave it back and forth around the back of the door behind the dispenser. Then do the same around the front of the dispenser. Continue alternating between the front and back of the door for 15-20 minutes, and periodically try the dispenser to see if it starts working again. If you have no luck after half an hour, then the plug of ice might be deeper in the system. Go on to the next step.
6. Once the refrigerator and freezer are empty, unplug it, and let it sit, with the doors open for 24 hours. Then plug it back in and try the dispenser again. It should work by now. If it still does not work, then the clog is not ice. You will have to call a repairman to purge the lines, or to otherwise solve the problem. Please post comments if you need more help or information.......

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Water wil not despense


Could be a few things. Either the water filter is not in correctly. The water line could be frozen in the door or in the cold water reservoir that is in the refrigerator section behind the bottom drawers. You can tell if it is frozen in the door if it is a SxS by unhooking the water line before it goes into the bottom of the freezer door. Just unhook it at the pressure fitting and then try to get water. If it is frozen in the door then water will come out of the unhooked line when you try to get water. Also could be a bad water valve.

Will not dispence water


My water dispensor INSIDE the door froze up.
I payed a repair guy $75 to use MY BLOWDRYER to "thaw" the frozen water line INSIDE the freezer door (below the water dispenser).

He said anytime the frozen food extends over the freezer shelf and touches the freezer door for a long enough period of time, the water line inside the door FREEZES!!

PREVENTION: "Keep some airspace between the door and frozen food."

Asko 1805 dishwasher detergent door does not despense the detergent during the wash cycle. At the conclusion of the dishwasher cycle the door is still closed. How do you repair?


First make sure that nothing is blocking it.. when you load the dishwasher...next make sure your dishwasher cycle is NOT on rince and hold ( water spraying on a plate symbol) as this cycle will not open the despence door..

last you can remove the screws in the door check the vax motor and or check if you are getting power to the despencer ( no power replace control)
power to vax motor replace despencer motor

Hope it helps if Not let me know more about you problem..I can help

General electric refridgerator won't despense water in the door


Have the same thing happen a few times. The posted solution is correct, but in the mean time you can thaw the line by heating with a blow dryer inside and outside the door, and around the ice dispenser. This should take about 15 mins.

B100 only dispences about 2 ounces of water


I removed the top from the hot water tank & repaired the split hose on the intake side. I also disassembled the the right side air pump & freed up the motor that was frozen. apperantly the check valve leaks very slightly & causes some rust build up on top of the pump motor. Should any one need a new motor you can find a universal hobby motor that you could make fit. these motors run on 3 to 18 volts which should be ok. After the repairs I did a good cleaning with whit vinagar. The machine now works as good as new. Hope this helps out other people with the same problem.

Texas, sounds like your water reservoir is frozen up. Remove your 2 cripser drawers, you will see the reservoir behind them. Take a hair dryer and go over the tank and tubing ends. See if the water starts flowing. I find a lot of frozen water reservoirs on these french door models. They have a insulation kit for them. Catriver.
