If the filter is not connected, it will stop the water. If there is no click when tried, the electrical connector at rear (bottom underneath panel) may have come unplugged.

No water going in


NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
The icemaker is 110v
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking or no water at icemaker or door either one, then the valve at the rear bottom of ref needs replacing
I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also if it is getting drinking water to the door but not to the icemaker (or vice versa) Then you need to replace
the water valve at the bottom rear of the fridge. It is a double valve and one side is not working
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

If the drain is clogged with Ice or ? The defrost water
overflows into the ref. or freezer or on floor

Ice forming on the bottom of the freezer


Hello,

The ice is from the melted frost of the defrost cycle. The drain at the bottom of the back wall of the freezer is blocked so instead of the water drining into the pan where it will evaperate,it's pooling on the freezer floor and freezing.By pulling the ref. from the wall there will be a tube behind teh service panel on the right side when looking at it from the rear,that tube can be removed and cleared,then clear the nozzle it connects to inside the freezer.

I hope this helps,

Gene

Water is leaking into the refrigerator.


most likely the defrost drain in the freezer is frozen shut. take out the back wall of the freezer and check under the evaporator. if its a whirlpool built kenmore you may find a sheet of ice on the floor of the freezer under the plastic floor/tray. if this is the case, remove ice, thaw drain with a turkey baster and hot water. wrap a piece of thicker copper wire (pencil lead size approx), around the defrost heater and push into drain about 2-3 inches, making sure it doesn't touch the sides of the drain, this will keep the drain from freezing shut. if its a frigidaire built remove the control from the inside of the ref and silicone around the opening where the water drains from the freezer into the drain cup that is built into the back of the control panel. that will keep the water from running along the ceiling of the ref and dripping. hope this helps. if not put model number with problem.

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.

Drinking water stopped working


Check for air leaks where the air tower enters the fresh food area. It is likely you have a poor seal and that is causing cold air to enter the FF compartment unregulated and has frozen the chilled water tank (coiled up tubing)
