Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a brand new French door electrolux refrigerator. It was just delivered today. The water dispenser doesn't give cold water - just room temperature. It's only been plugged in for 8 hrs but I would assume it should be cold and we've already discarded 12 glasses of water, as the manual says.

We have had two different Electrolux French door refrigerators, over the past 2 years and the water never becomes cold. We were told this is because the the storage tank in this particular refrigerator is so small. You just have to drink your water with ice. Unfortunately, we have had recurrent problems with the ice maker as well! Sorry - but these refrigerators are very problematic and I would not recommend them to anyone!!!!!!

Ice Maker is not dispensing ice


Since it is brand new, it should be covered under warranty but check a few things first. To make ice, you need to have the water, a cold freezer, and the ice maker must be turned on. Since you say you have ice then the temp and the water supply sound OK. There is a shut off option on ice makers so you can decide not to make ice as on option. Check that the ice maker is turned ON. Also, there is an automatic shut off if the bin fills up with ice so it does not overflow. On mine, it is a bar that will raise up higher as the ice accumulates and that will shut off the icemaker. Check that. Otherwise call GE for warranty service on the icemaker.

Ice maker not working


my icemaker has a wire overfill sensor which shuts off the icemaker if there is too much ice in the basket. If this wire gets pushed up it will stop making ice until level lowers OR manually lowered.

Ice maker not putting out water just hooked up ice maker kit


Are you getting ice? It seems like my brand-new electrolux does not produce cold water unless it is producing ice as well. We had to adjust the auger in the ice tray to start getting ice ... seems like our water is now getting colder.

GE PFSS6SMX french door fridge water dispenser not working


check the fiting where you tapped the water for the uit. If its a saddle valve what happens is the the gasket closes down and restricts the water flow.
