Frigidaire FRS26ZPH: No water or ice

While visiting my grandkids, I noticed their Frigidaire FRS26ZPH frig had no ice and water did not come out of the dispenser. They said no one changed the filter since the light had indicated the filter needed to be replaced.
I bought a new filter and installed it. I tried to fill an 8 oz. glass. The water trickled out at first (1/16'' stream), then began to come faster, then it jumped to a full stream and started to sputter. I had to remove the glass as it was full. When I tried the water again, nothing came out. There was water in the filter housing, but I couldn't get any water to come out.

    I did replace the filter, but I need to confirm that the replacement was compatible with the refrigerator. If the filter is correct, I'll try defrosting the refrigerator as suggested.

As first thing remove the food and do a complete defrost, leaving the fridge disconnected overnight. If the water was not circulating, water may have frozen in the lines. A piece of ice stuck in water pipes will typically cause the symptoms you have described.

Disconnect power and ensure that the filter is of the same kind. One filter has white ends, while a similar replacement has blue ends. The filter may need to be fixed with an O-ring.

Remove the filter, ensure it is the same as the old one, check that it is comfortably fitting in the housing, and put it back in place.

Here parts and diagrams.

Bummer deal. I would say trash is blocking the flow of water at some connection - maybe as it enters the cube-making device.

Water pools at the bottom on the inside the freezer side of a side by side frigidaire. This frig has a water line for automated ice and dispenses water/ice on the outside. At the bottom there is a vent...

your defrost drain is plugged remove the back panel in side the freezer at the bottom you will see a metal pan with a hole in it clean around the whole and flush it with hot water a turkey baster works great for forcing hot water thru the drain and clearing what ever is plugging it

Water comes out of my frig door dispensor but its not cold?

on most all refrigerators the 1st 2 glasses of water may only be room temperature because of the way the water tubing is routed thru the refrig. if you will notice on your dispenser cover it does not say chilled or ice water. thanks for using  FixYa Peyton

Water in the frig and possible overheating

clean the coils and check to see if the condensor fan is working. Call your local dealer and ask them to order you new o-rings for the filter mount to fix the leak from the filter.
