Yes there is a shut off valve located usually under the sink or where ever it is getting its water supply, there is also the angle stops that you shut off that keeps water from going into the lines. check both of those, if there is still a issue, then it is something to do with the fridge. Something has got knocked loose and will need to be fixed

Fridge's water dispenser continues to run


Hello John;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

Neither your ice maker or water dispenser work off your main control board.

There is only one reason that the ice maker will not fill and you water dispenser does not shut off immediately after the contact switch disengages.

Your problem is low water pressure. You have a bad water valve.
After time the water valve seals fail, metal form the water line or corrosion plugs the water supply valve. You need at least 60 PSI water pressure to shut off the water dispenser solenoid valve and at least 60 PSI to open the ice maker water valve and fight the long fill tubing resistance.


Check - Pull your unit out where you can get behind it. Turn power off to your unit. Turn the water valve off. With towels under the unit water connection and a large bucket ready, disconnect the water supply line. With the water valve shut off you will probably get a steady stream of low water flow. The valve is bad. If not, open the water valve with the water line in the bucket. Is the water flow 60 PSI? Probably not.

Use a hair dryer to completely dry the solenoid valve and electrical area before you plug your unit back in

You need to replace the valve.

Before you do the above. Just in case you move your unit check for a bend or closure in the water line.

Ice maker works but no water out of water dispenser?


Hi
You have not supplied the make or model of your fridge and so I can only offer a generic response.
Most ice-makers, chilled water dispensers are reliant upon a water stop valve that make a distinctive click when operated.
Does it click when you dispense water?
If not, then assuming the ice dispenser works (indicating the activate button is working), then the water valve has possibly failed (or less likely the wiring somewhere in between).

My ice maker has stopped producing ice - I have a whrlpool fridge freezer


Causes are:
1. Check shut off arm- If it fails to move due to lot stored ice cubs, remove some quantity of ice cubs.
2. Check the water pressure. Due to lack of water, it may stopped producing ice.
3.Check freezer temp: must be around 5 degree.
4.Check water hose has no leak. due to scarcity of water, ice maker could stop making ice cubes.
5. If water valve defective ice cube could not be made. To check the valve please follow this step.
Locate your ice maker, remove the ice bucket. Pull the coveroff the end of the ice maker. Locate the holes "V" and "L". Take a paper clip(jump clip) and tape. Straight the clip and put tape in middle. Hold the tapedside and insert the clip into "V" and "L". This sends the power to watervalve.If water goes into ice maker, water valve is good.Hope, is it helpful?

KitchenAid ice dispenser tray is dry - not working


Put some water in the ice mold is what I would try. wait and see if the ice maker harvest a batch. If it does drop a batch but no more then the water valve is probably shot. The ice maker itself controls the water. It does this by filling the ice mold for 7.5 seconds. Here is your Ice maker repair manual and some repair photos along with a pictorial which snows how to check the water valve.

Ice maker not working


Check to make sure the water line is properly hooked up and on (this would run from the general area of the ice maker out the back of your fridge, down, and through a pipe into the floor or wall. If this is not hooked up or present, your ice maker has no way to get water) if the water is on at the fridge, make sure it's on where the pipe is connected to the water line is as well.
Second, check to see if the "full" bar is in the proper position. This should be somewhere in front of where the ice dispenses, if it is in one position and it's not working, move it to the other position.
If these general solutions do not work, please respond with your make and model and any other information on the malfunction you can give us!
Thanks for using FixYa!

WATER DISPENSER NOT WORKING


It might be that you have a restriction at the water supply line serving the fridge. Check it for good flow (have bucket and towels handy!) If supply line is good, then move onto the fridge to check the water inlet valve(s). as newer models have 2 or 3 inlet valves, a main water valve for the entire unit, and possibly one each for the ice maker and water dispenser past the main inlet valve (solinoid).

You can check these by simply shutting off the main supply to the fridge from the house water line 1st, and then removing each water line from the supply side of the fridge and seeing if you have water flow from the house to the valve side. If you do, then reconnect the lines to the fridge valves and see if you can get water flowing to the other side of the solinoid/valve when you have someone try to get a glass of water from the water dispenser, etc.

It is possible that there is an obstruction in the lines, by not very likely. Normally it is a failed water valve(s) (solinoid) that causes low flow or complete loss of flow, especially if you've changed the fridge water filter or replaced it with the "cap" which eliminates filtering of the water.

It is that you'll likely have to replace at least one, maybe more, of the fridge inlet water valves. If you have the time, try to zero in on the failed one by bypassing each, one at a time, until you get water flow. That way, you'll only have to purchase just the replacement valve needed to get things working again.

Icemaker wont dispense water. worked last night but not today.


without knowing model #, i would check to see if the unit has a resevior for drinking water in the fridge side, could be something as simple as the temp set too low in fridge side and freezing the res. check that out. or it could be that your water valve in the back is faulty. take the hose off in back and have someone push the dispenser lever in the front. if it squirts your valve is good and you probably have somekind of blockage in the plastic tubing somewhere. solid 12 gauge wire works great for that. just run it in the tubing but be careful, you dont want to damage it. good luck.

Frigidaire signaling water dispenser instead of ice maker


Sounds like the water solinoid valves are wired wrong.One activates The water dispenser.The other the ice maker.That, why every so often the water shoots out on the floor.The ice maker is telling the valve to open.
