You have a dual water inlet valve where your water supply connects. One goes to the ice maker and the other goes to the water dispenser by way of the water reservoir you mentioned in the fridge.

Open the door and hold the door switch down and try the ice dispenser. Do you hear any thing.You should hear the ice door open and the augur motor turning to turn the augur which pushes the ice out the door. If the augur doesn't turn Take all the ice out of the bin and try. perhaps the motor is too weak or the augur is locked up. Take the bin out and try to see if the motor will turn with no load. The motor is behind the back cover where the bin sits. See if you get power to it using a voltmeter when you try the dispenser. If you are, probably bad motor. If not ,dispenser switch or solenoid is not working.

Clogged Water Dispensor


The water inlet solenoid is the culprit. It lets water into the icemaker and water for the dispenser. Follow the waterline to the back of the frige and it ends at the water inlet solenoid. Note the 2 solenoids built into 1 part. Replace this part and you are done. Don't forget to unplug frige and turn off the water before you replace this part. EZ FIX...

Kitchen aid refrigerator water dispenser does not dispense water. the ice will dispense, and there is no filter for the water, so i would assume no clogging is the issue. But any ideas would be appreciated...


could be a few things. fist, when you call for water, listen for a very faint "hum" noise, if you do hear that, it is either the solonoid on the valve, or the reserve tank in the frige froze. easy way to check. pull the frige out and un-plug from power. on the back of the unit is a cover on the bottom, remove cover. the valve is on the far right as your looking at it. it has 2 solonoids on it. there are two plastic water lines on the bottom of the valve, i believe the one on the left is for ice maker, and the right one goes to door dispenser. remove the water line going to the door dispenser and put a cup under the valve. plug in frige and call for water at the door for couple seconds, check to see if water came out of valve into cup in back. if it did, the valve is ok, if no water, replace valve. they run about $50. if you didnt hear the hum i talked about, and the valve is ok, let me know and i can walk you through checking and replacing the switch in the dispenser. good luck, shane

WATER DOES NOT DISPENSE, EVEN THOUGH ICEMAKER WORKS


the way you test that is by going behind the frige and taking the bottom panel and find the water connection as the line connects to the frige there is one line coming to it from the wall and 2 goin out in to the frige 1 goes to the ice maker and the other to the water at the door. disconnect one first and try getting water from the door, one of those lines is going to pas water when you do that, if no one passes water with this test replace that water valve.

Re: Dispensing water and Ice


the water valve is located behind the frige, remove the lower back panel and follow the water line from the house to the frige as that line meets the frige that's the valve that may be bad,but before you change it, you can test it, remove one of the 2 lines that goes to the side of the frige and push the switch to get some water, water should come from back there, if not re move the other line, it meant that the first line belong to the ice maker, try the other one now, it should give you water. if not replace the valve.

Frigidaire signaling water dispenser instead of ice maker


Sounds like the water solinoid valves are wired wrong.One activates The water dispenser.The other the ice maker.That, why every so often the water shoots out on the floor.The ice maker is telling the valve to open.
