When the fridge would dispense water lately it's like it would only dispense out about 6 cups of water and then nothing would come out. After waiting awhile then the water will dispense again from the fridge. Before that my family always went to the fridge off and on and there was no problem.

Re: Fridge will only dispense 6 cups at a time?
Some fridges have a safety feature built in, which turns off water if the water valve was open for a certain number of seconds, to avoid flooding. So if you need a lot of water, make sure to release water dispenser lever for a second or two every minute.
If the above is not the case, you may need to replace the water valve or a switch on the water dispenser. The way to find out which part needs replacement is to check the voltage on the green water valve coil when the dispenser lever is pressed but it's not dispensing water. If 110v AC is present across the coil - replace valve. If there's no 100v AC - replace switch in the dispenser. Make sure to unplug the fridge before opening the dispenser.

There are two possible problems here. Either the water valve is going bad on the machine, or even more possible the main controla board, located on the back of the machine and can't be located by the silver square plate the covers it. Unplug the machine and remove the plate and look for any signs of burns or major discloration. This board controls everything on the refridgerator. A good place to order parts from is www.repairclinic.com because of their awesome return policy.
NOTE: Not my instructions i just found something similar.
According to the instructions for Breville Hot Cup (presumably similar to yours - the adjustable flow one): 1. Fill it to the max and dispense one cup of water. 2. Add a citric based descaling product into the cup and stir. 3. Tip contents into kettle and close lid. 4. Dispense water from the kettle, discarding the water until it reaches the 'min' mark. 5. Empty remaining water into sink, rinse out with clean water. 6. Fill kettle with fresh water and dispense cups of water until it reaches the 'min' mark. Empty the rest into the sink, then refill ready for use.
If this was my fridge
1 I would give it a soft kick with my right foot/ your left
2 nothing happens
3 empty the fridge
4 push the off switch
5 should the unbeliveable happen that the frozen part would start to melt
6 then I put some boiling water in a wash basin in the fridge and a few towels on the floor-we don´t want water on the floor, do we?
7 when all the "frozen places" have disapperaed .
8 clean the fridge´s insides
9 push the on button and close the door properly
10 wait for 30 min open again and see if the places that are supposed to be frozen arn´t frozen
11 if they are put the good things back into the fridge
12 and have a good cup of coffee
I have the same fridge and the water line freezes up in the door on a regular basis. I have to use a hair dryer and slowly wait for it to melt. It takes about 30 minutes and then works fine for awhile. It has become quite a habit that I'm not thrilled about. Don't waste your money replacing the board or anything else. GE was no help and I'm now shopping for a new fridge bc of this issue. Needless to say that it won't be a GE! Hope this helps.
How does the coffee get into the cup? If it brews directly into the cup then the amount can be controlled by how much water you put into the maker. If it is a 6 cup then it must hold the coffee in a reservoir. Do you have to push and hold a button to dispense the coffee or do you push and wait for it to fill your cup? If it is the latter then it will need to know how large or small the cup size is. Is there a setting for that? If it is a push and hold method then you control the coffee flow so size is up to you. As far as it being a travel mug or ceramic mug as long as the mug will fit in the maker and sit securely under the nozzle then it shouldn't matter what kind of mug it is.
Remove kick plate at bottom of fridge in front. Find line that brings water to door. There should be a coupling that connects the line together there. Remove the line and get a cup. While holding line into cup with door shut push water dispenser with other hand. Did you get water into cup.
You said, Your Kitchenaid Superba KSRG25FKBL15 has bad tasting water and ice cubes. You
replaced the copper tubing which delivers the water to the fridge and
that didn't help. You replaced the copper tubing again with plastic
tubing...no better. Any suggestions? Your tap water doesn't taste this
bad.You bought a Kenmore french door fridge with water dispenser in the
door in July 2008. The fridge has a filter. A few weeks after the
fridge came the water and ice started tasting really bad, unlike any
bad water taste I have ever tasted. And your tap water is fine. The bad
taste appears to be random. Sometimes you get a cup full of nasty water
and sometimes it tastes fine.
First you must know you have a 1 year warranty and can have them come out to fix anything, no charge.If it persists. You will have to get tough and you , MUST INSIST THEY REPLACE YOUR FRIDGE
When installing the water line these were a part of the directions! Did you do this before connecting the water line to your fridge? "Place the free end of the tubing in a container or sink, and turn ON the main water supply. Flush the tubing until water is clear. Turn OFF the shutoff valve on the water pipe. Coil the copper tubing."
Whirlpool remedy Off-taste, odor or gray color in the ice 1.Are the plumbing connections new, causing discolored or off-flavored ice? Discard the first few batches of ice. 2.Have the ice cubes been stored too long? Throw old ice away and make a new supply. 3.Does the freezer and ice storage bin need to be cleaned? See “Cleaning” or “Ice Maker and Storage Bin.” 4.Has food in the freezer or refrigerator been wrapped properly? Use airtight, moisture-proof packaging to help prevent odor transfer to stored food. 5.Does the water contain minerals (such as sulfur)? A filter may need to be installed to remove the minerals. 6. Is there a water filter installed on the refrigerator? Gray or dark discoloration in ice indicates that the water filtration system needs additional flushing. Run additional water through the water dispenser to flush the water filtration system more thoroughly (at least 2 to 3 gal. [8 to 12 L] or 6 to 7 minutes initially). Discard discolored ice. Let me know what works, Thank You , HUUUM!!
You should have two water solenoids in back of fridge and near bottom where the water supply comes in. It is possible that one of the solenoids is stuck (the one supplying door)closed or clogged with trash. Also possible the selector switch on door is not making a good connection when selecting water. When someone is trying to get water touch a metallic object to solenoid in back to see if the magnetic field pulls the iron from a safety pen or screwdriver. There should be a click when the water valve opens if not stuck, dirty or bad solenoid. Also try switching water lines around (ice water to water and back) Let me know if this helps, Sea Breeze http://www.applianceaid.com/refrigerator.html#freezing
