The water dispenser in my frig stopped working but it still makes lots of ice. I replaced the filter on 29 Dec 2007. I normally get 6 months out of a filter.

    My water dispenser just stopped working all at once. One day it worked fine and the next day it did not work at all. Wondering if someone had the same issue with their Hotpoint Fridge and what the fix was.

    Same model and same problem here.
    We had this model for 2 years, 2 months ago it quits on water dispensing. we stopped ice making thinking it might be of reservoir frozen, the water come back unexpectedly.

    Now it stops again, even though we stop ice making for well over two weeks. the water still not coming back.

    I notice it that the dispenser stops working when weather goes cold.

We had same problem! The water line gets frozen in the door, and there is no way to get to it. But, I took some 14 gauge electrical wire and would get one end hot by putting it under hot water, then put that end up the water line in the door. This might take several attempts, but it will work. A little piece of ice about 2 inches long will come out.

Hi, Guys, There are three solutions to this problem:

1) Using a hair blower to warm the other side of the freezer door-----i.e. at where water dispenser is located; This may take 3 to 5 minutes;

2) Take out the filter, pour out the inside water, then fill in with hot water (really hot), then put it back on. This needs at least 24 hours to work
3) Turn on the light near the water dispenser, and keep it on for at least 24 hours. The light heat may eventually de-freeze water dispenser tube.

I tried methods 2) and 3) together. It took 10 hours to get water flow again.

Important: I need to point it out that the credit be given to other posts addressing the same problem at fixya site, though of different GE models.

[LG Refregerator] Model LFX25961AL water does not dispense and ice is not being made

Make sure the wire guide that pulls up when ice is at full capacity is not accidentally pulled up. (this is above the ice bin in the freezer). Pull back down and should make ice.

Whirlpool refrigerator won't make ice--just out of warranty

I would have to say control board but you could look for a bin level switch. This is what tells the machine that the ice Bin is full. If it is duty or damaged the machine will never make ice as it thinks there is enough already there

My water dispenser does not give me water

1st make sure you got water to the frig.
defrost the frig by turning it off for 2 days with the doors open. Sometime the water freezes inside the door and the water dispenser doesnt work. the turn back on and see if you have water. every 6 months you should change the filter (it could be the problem too)

My Maytag gc2225geks water dispenser not working. At first the water dispense from it at a very slow flow rate. My brother removed the filter and give it a clean and now it failed to dispense any water or...

Try this... unplug frig and take everything out, leave the doors open as well. let everything thaw out for at least 2 days. then plug in and see if water comes out. what we are trying to do is make sure that the water hasn't frozen inside the door. i seen this happen and it drove me crazy. try this because i want to save you money from guessing whats wrong and buying parts. if the water comes back on then let me know and i will find the kit you need to stop this problem

ok if the water still doen't come out then make sure you have enough water pressure going to the frig.

another problem could be a plugged water filter, you can try to put a new one (every 6 months recommend) to see if this corrects the problem

take off the connector at the water valve and see if there is any debris

if all fails the only thing left is the water valve itself

hope this was helpful

I get water from the dispenser but no ice

As you open the freezer door you will se a wire on the side of the ice maker. It is there to stop the machine from making ice like a float in the toilet. It may have been bumped move it up or down until it clicks. it should go to work making ice now if not the valve in the back of the frig is pluged or bad. If you do not have a water filter it is pluged. The filter is cheep and easy to replace so I would turn the water off to it and replace the filter any way most are neglected.
