Question about Microwave Ovens
This problem is caused due to these reasons.
1)Bad water inlet valve,make sure the water reservoir in the refrigerator is not frozen and check if 120 VAC is coming to the water valve solenoid while the water dispenser calls for water.
2)You have two separate solenoid valves. One feeds the ice maker the other one feeds your water dispenser. You can shut the water off, take the hose off and clean the strainer. or you can check for voltage going into the solenoid, press for water and check power going into the solenoid that is feeding your water dispenser.
3)Your water line could be frozen in the door. You can disconnect the line under the unit before it goes into the door at the bottom hinge. Push the dispenser button and see if it comes out there. If it does try a hair dryer blowing where the water line is at the dispenser for a few minutes.Water pipe in the freezer door was frozen then this will cause this issue.
4)If the refrigerator water filter,remove it.Make sure the sediment filter is not blocked.
5)Clean saddle valve,shut off valve if it is frozen melt the blocks of ice.
6)See if water is getting to the door. You have to track the water line and disconnect it from the bottom of the door. Then water that might come and hit the paddle to call for water. If you do get water then you have an issue with the tubing in the door. If still no water trace your lines back into the fridge compartment and make sure it is not kinked or even frozen.
7)Switch off your refrigerator for 8 hours or more and let the fridge get warm and melt all the frozen ice.Then switch it on and check.
8) If still the problem persist dispenser switch is defective
