Question about KitchenAid KBFA20ER Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator

1 Answer

No water from dispenser

I verified that water is coming in at the source. When I removed the water line from the back it spit as if pressure was coming from inside the refrigerator - seems like a clog somewhere.

I also replaced the filter thinking that may have been clogged, but that didn't make a difference.

Any help would be appreciated!

Spitting sputtering


Your water solenoid is sticking. It is drawing air back through it when off then the pressure of the water is keeping it open. I would replace the solenoid valve.

Water dispenser on fridge not working - water pressure fine, could the line be frozen and why would that start happening all of a sudden?


Check to see if the water reservoir in the bottom of the frig is frozen. If it is, you will need to turn the frig temp down.

Whirpool Gold 21 Cu. Ft. Side by Side. Water dispenser will not dispense water. I hear the solenoid click. I think the line in must be frozen some where.


Do the following: Flush the water system. Use a sturdy container to depress and hold the water dispenser lever for 5 seconds, then release it for 5 seconds. Repeat until water begins to flow. Once water begins to flow, continue depressing and releasing the dispenser lever (5 seconds on, 5 seconds off) until a total of 3 gal. (12 L) has been dispensed. This will flush air from the filter and water dispensing system, and prepare the water filter for use.
Ensure that the freezer door is closed completely? Close the door firmly.
Ensure that the water shutoff valve is fully open.
Ensure that the water pressure is at least 30 psi (207 kPa)? The water pressure to the home determines the flow from the dispenser.
Check for any kinks in the home water source line? Straighten the water source line.
Check the water filter. The filter may be clogged or incorrectly installed.
if still there is problem of water flow then please take assistance of a technician to check the plumbing.
If the fridge is new and in the warranty period get in touch with the service center and ask for free service.

Inside water dispencer drips continually. Valves at back of unit were replaced but problem not solved


Unless you have another valve somewhere else, that is the only thing that could cause the problem. Have someone try the dispenser while you listen at the back and verify that the valve you replaced is the one the noise comes from when the dispenser is used. If it is, disconnect the line and watch to see if it is dripping. There could be sediment in the supply water that can stop the valve from closing. Low water pressure will also cause it to leak.

Water runs very slowly from dispenser and i chnaged dual solenoid valve but problem remains


Hi, Check the water pressure to the inlet valve you changed. Remove the water line and put the end in a bucket. Have someone turn the source valve on and see if the pressure to the inlet valve is strong enough. When the water is on, there should be enough pressure to force the line out of the bucket. Sometimes the source valve gets plugged with rust or lime. You might have to sht the water off to the house and clean the source valve port.
If the pressure seem to be ok, there might be a need to change the filter (costly so be sure the filter needs changed) or check the hose end inside the dispenser and se if it is plugged at all.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Jenn Air fridge water dispensor stopped working


Hi: You press the switch and it makes a faint humming noise. That tells me the switch on the front panel is ok. The switch for the ice and water is actually on the bottom of the ref. The internal system of the ref is not under city water pressure. Ice is made so that's ok. There is a solenoid where the water attaches to the fridge down below which can fail. Just for giggles try tapping the switch with the plastic handle of a screwdriver. To loosen any scale that might have built up. As I'm unemployed also I'm giving you that trick. Otherwise I would just say replace it. I hope this helps, Jeff

JCD2389GES water dispenser over-runs and also starts on own


Low water pressure can be very problematic when it comes to icemaker/water dispenser water inlet valves. If there is low water pressure to the valve, the valve may not seat correctly causing icemaker fill tubes to freeze, icemakers to over/under fill or water dispensers to leak or not shut off fast enough. Check the water pressure to the valve like this:

Turn off the water supply to the refrigerator and remove the water supply line from the water inlet valve behind the refrigerator.

Put the end of the water line in a bucket and turn the water supply on. There should be a good stream of water jetting from the tube. If there is not, the water supply shut off valve is probably plugged and needs to be replaced or there could be an in-line water filter that needs to be replaced. Only use a drill style (non-self piercing) saddle valve http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-584723-%3d%3di584723&PartID=584723 for the water supply.

If there is a good stream, the water inlet valve that the water line connects to at the back of the refrigerator should be replaced.

*Note: Reverse Osmosis (R/O) systems should never be used to supply water to icemakers.

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?
