Question about GE Monogram ZFSB26DRSS Stainless Free-Standing Refrigerator with Dispenser

1 Answer

Water dispenser runs very slowly. it doesn't seem to run slow to the machine, just through it. Is there an easy way to check the line? also, I read that there was a water reservoir somewhere... should I check that? I also removed the filter as I read that there was a filter bypass button, but my model must not have this. any suggestions?

The filter may be the cause of the slow dispenser. They don't last forever.The inlet screen to the water solenoids where the water line connects to the fridge may be partially blocked. Heat from the night lite bulb can deform the plastic tube at the dispenser outlet and restrict the flow. Check all of the above and you'll find it.

SOURCE: Water dispenser problem?

grandfunk, by your post, it sounds like the line is frozen over. You will have to do some tests. First rule out the dispenser itself. While someone is calling for water see if you have 120V to the water valve. If you do, we ruled out the dispenser. Behind the toe panel there should be a water line with a john guest fitting going up the door. Disconnect it there and call for water. Catch it with a cup. If the water is flowing there, you might be frozen up in the door. I have found a couple of these models with that problem. If it's not flowing there, behind the lower drawers in the refrigerator section is the water coil tubing. Take a hair dryer and go over it lightly. It could be frozen over there. Check these things first and post back. Catriver.

SOURCE: slow ice maker,poor water dispencer flow

If you used a self piercing saddle valve to hook up to the water supply it is probably the source of your problem. These should never be used. You need to install a drill in type which will increase the water flow and probably never clog.

There will not be a one word solution to this but if we test the areas beginning with the water supply line we will come to a answer. You need to look at where and how the water line is connected to the water service line. Shut the water supply off at its source. remove the water line on back of refrigerator and point water line into a pan or bucket and have someone turn the shut off back on. If flow is poor then the suppline has a blockage at the tap valve that is (not recommended) or a crimp in the feed supply line to refrigerator. If that turns out to be OK then we move to the dual water control valve part number 67006322 It also may be that the valve is not opening well due to being worn out, I am ready to assist you when you are, Sea Breeze

Water dispenser running slowly


Hello Cynthia;

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

You have a water pressure problem. You need at least 60 PSI water pressure to open the solenoid valves. I suspect you are getting small ice cubes.

If you have well water you are not going to get the pressure for fully dispenser flow.

I have experienced bad water filters. One time our techs received a large shipment of bad water filters. Remove the water filter and test the water dispenser.

With low water pressure you may not want to use a water filter

Slow water dispensing


How slowly in comparison to other units? Have you measured it how fast it runs ?? If slower than when Syntia was brand new is maybe caused by an insufficiently cleaned brew group or lack of proper descaling .Calcium or mineral in the unit's lines and boiler can slow down your machine .
if the filter screen is partially blocked from old coffee tar then water cannot flow faster . In my opinion it always runs slowly when rinsing .
If you use a "Coffee Residue cleaner "only use it in the pre-ground
setting chute and use only a pinch at a time . then run pre-ground setting without any grounds and run another one to clear the detergent
Very oily ,sticky coffee beans can plug up any late model superautomatic's system as you can read in the unit manuals . Because the laser cut holes in the fliter screen are so small that any coffee tar will not flow properly through the screens .I have had many machines which had to be switched to a less oily bean to work more than for2 or 3 cups .When beans are roasted too fast and too hot ,the coffee oil can turn to coffee tar .
My Xelsis unit cannot handle very oily beans . 2 cups and it STOPS
I only use beans roasted to American Coffee institute recommended procedures .

Whirlpool GR2FHTXVQ00 fridge. Water dispenser


The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.
The valve can leak because of sediment in the water preventing it from closing or low water pressure.

You can thaw out the fill tube and replace the inlet valves.

Or
Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

Whirlpool ED22PE refrigerator in-door water dispenser very slow


remove the saddle clamp that some idiot put on the supply line under your sink and splice in a real "T" with a real cutoff. hopefully the saddle clamp is past your main valve and not before it or you'll have to turn off all your water first.

Try to mix the Softner with water half and half if that dont work you may need a new water valve and also try to clean the screen in the water valves if your on a well. Turn the water off and disconnect the hoses and look inside the valves.

Water dispenser is just a trickle


the biggest culprit for slow water dispensing aside from the filter is the water supply its self. check to make sure the water line isnt kinked behind the refrig, if thats ok then disconnect the water line from the refrig and run water into a bucket and observe your water flow. good water pressure would basicly fill a 2 gallon bucket in less than a minute. much less than that can cause problems. hope that helps peyton

LG WM2277HS - water backing up into soap dispenser


The pipe from the soap dispenser to the tub is quite large, it seems as if the water isn't getting out of the dispenser quick enough. Pull the whole dispenser out of the machine. There is a release clip at the back of the cup with the tray fully open. Clean out all soap residue and scum. Sometimes there is also a spot or setting for liquid or powder detergent. Adjust accordingly. Reassemble and try it again.
