Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

Refrigerator water dispenser pours out about a glass of water every 20 minutes without me doing anything. I took water tubes apart from the back today to drain and flush and replaced water filter and then hooked everything back up. It started doing it right after this. What could this be from?

Hello,

the water is leaking somewhere on the dispenser. You need to bring out the water tubes again, cheeck for any leakage and seal it up. You can trace the water from where is coming out from the dispenser.

Not until you do this, water will keep pouring.

Take care.

HOW TO HOOK UP AND START THE ICE MAKER ON JSI_23


Good Morning Le Morrer,

I see that you are trying to hook up and start the ice maker on your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRS3R5EMB.

To connect Water supply Line to ice Maker inlet valve:
1 Disconnect your refrigerator from the electric power source.
2 Place the end of water supply line into sink or bucket. Turn ON water supply and flush supply line until water is clear. Turn OFF water supply at shutoff valve.
3 Remove plastic cap from water valve inlet and discard cap.
4 If you use copper tubing - Slide brass compression nut, then ferrule (sleeve) onto water supply line. Push water supply line into water valve inlet as far as it will go (1/4 inch/6.4mm). Slide ferrule (sleeve) into valve inlet and finger tighten compression nut onto valve. Tighten another half turn with a wrench; DO NOT over tighten.
If you use stainless steel tubing - The nut and ferrule are already assembled on the tubing. Slide compression nut onto valve inlet and finger tighten compression nut onto valve. Tighten another half turn with a wrench; DO NOT over tighten.
5 With steel clamp and screw, secure water supply line (copper tubing only) to rear panel of refrigerator as shown.
6 Coil excess water supply line (copper tubing only) about 2 and 1/2 turns behind refrigerator and arrange coils so they do not vibrate or wear against any other surface.
7 Turn ON the water supply at shutoff valve and tighten any connections that leak.
8 Reconnect your refrigerator to electrical power source.
9 To turn the ice maker on, lower wire signal arm (side mounted) or set the ice maker's ON/Off power switch to the "I" position (rear mounted).

After connecting the water supply, you will need to prime the water supply system.
To Prime The Water Supply System:
1 Begin filling the tank by pressing and holding a drinking glass against the water dispenser paddle.
2 Keep the glass in this position until water comes out of the dispenser. There will be noticeable spurts and sputters as the system pushes air out through the system and dispenser nozzle. This is normal. This may take about 1 and 1/2 minutes.
3 Continue dispensing water for about 3 minutes to flush the system of any air and impurities. Empty the glass as needed.


The water dispenser has a built-in device that shuts off the water flow after 3 minutes of continuous use. To reset this shutoff device, simply release the dispenser paddle. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Water leak electrolux


Good Morning atgltd,

So I understand that your water dispenser continues to release water for several minutes after pouring a glass of water and that it also randomly dispenses water. It sounds like something could be going on with either the dispenser module or the water actuator. Give the refrigerator a hard reset. You can do this by either unplugging it or by switching the breaker off that it is connected to. Leave it off for 3-5 minutes. Connect the power back, and if you are still having the same troubles of the dispenser releasing water, I would suggest that you contact a local authorized technician to see what exactly is causing the water to continuously dispense.

-Best Regards-

Heat from the night light will deteriorate the plastic tubing of the dispenser. Cracks in the tube will allow water to go out the side of the tube as well as in the glass you're filling. There are repair kits available from online appliance parts companys.

Water despenser does not work


OK EVERYONE...

HERE IS YOUR SOLUTION FOR WATER AND ICE DISPENSERS ON GE UNITS NOT WORKING BECAUSE OF FROZEN LINES.

GET A HAIR DRYER...

USE THE HAIRDRYER TO WARM UP THE LINE THAT STARTS AT THE BOTTOM LEFT HAND SIDE OF THE FREEZER DOOR.

WARM UP EVERYTHING ALL THE WAY UP THE SIDE UP TO THE WATER DISPENSER.

WARM UP THE TUBE WHERE THE WATER COMES OUT.
(BE CAREFUL NOT TO PUSH THE WATER DISPENSER SWITCH...COMMON SENSE)

KEEP WARMING UP THE DOOR AND TESTING THE SWITCH UNTIL YOU GET WATER...

IT TOOK ME ABOUT 20 MINUTES...IT MAY TAKE LONGER DEPENDING ON HOW BAD THE LINE IS FROZEN.

I HOPE THIS HELPS...

Ice maker jambed-now no water


The ice maker must be re-primed with water to sense frozen ice in the tray, dump, and refill. Use a cup or glass to manually pour the water into the tray just below the top of the blades. It should freeze, dump, and refill.

Water Dispensor


The water line is frozen inside the freezer door. Open the freezer door and take a hair dryer to warm the inside of the feezer door. Check the water dispenser every 5 minutes to see if the line is unfrozen. Water line is ran from the bottom to the waterr dispense unit. Usally take 10-20 minutes to unthaw water line inside of freezer door. Good luck.
