Stuff in freezer is thawing out. I hear a "click" every few minutes. It's a side by side, water and ice dispenser in door.

Water dispenser in door does not dispense


Had this happen on my LG side-by-side a few years back. It's a common part. Find the version for your make and model. Easy ti replace. It is located where the water suppy connects to the bottm refridge.

No, the circuit board mounted inside the ice dispenser on the door has no control over the defrost mode. Furthermore, the problem you appear to be having is not with the defrost system, rather the compressor attempting to start, but failing. This could be caused by a bad compressor, or a bad compressor start kit failure. Again, neither of these could be caused by an issue with the control board for the ice/water dispenser.

Water is not working


You have two points where you can check the dispenser water. At the rear where the water supply comes in is the water inlet valve. If you disconnect the dispenser water line and then see if the water comes out when you try the dispenser. You should hear the valve work when you try the dispenser. If you don’t hear it there is a dispenser actuator switch problem. If you do hear it but water doesn’t work here there is a valve or water supply problem.
If it's normal, disconnect it at the bottom of the freezer door and try again.If it's normal here it may be frozen in the door. If this is the case open the door till it thaws. A blanket over the opening will prevent thawing of all the food.

Water dispenser on refrigerator not working but ice maker is making ice


Most likely a frozen line... If you can hear a faint pump noise near filter when you try to dispense wate, that tells you the pump is woking. rIt could be a frozen reservoir(located on fridge side behind vegetable bins) or the line that runs thru freezer door to the dispenser. Use a hair dryer to thaw out reservoir or try to turn off the unit for a few hours. (That did it for me). If it's the line in freezer door, shut off unit, open freeezer door for a few hours and seal off freezer with a towel or cardboard to keep all frozen. If not this, may be a clogged water line from filter or a bad valve.

Kenmore s/s f/f; ice dispenser working; water dispenser not


If you can't hear the solenoid on the water inlet valve(it's on the back where the water supply hooks up) when you try the water then the water switch on the dispenser is at fault.

If you do hear it 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 doesleave the door open till it thaws.

If it doesn't come out there disconnect it at the water inlet valve and see if it comes out there.

No water from dispenser


The water line was frozen. We turned the freezer back to setting 2 and opened the freezer door for two 5-minute intervals. Leaving the freezer door open, we time another 5-minute interval about 30 minutes later. And no....nothing thawed out in the freezer. When we tried the water, it worked! And much faster than before. We did not mess with the bottom of the fridge at all. About 2 hours later, we returned the freezer setting to 5. This morning the water is still flowing! Thanks for the tip and for saving me a $85 repairman bill. All of the tips were very helpful.

Water dispenser


Hello, If you can see the water line inside the freezer case you might try using a hair blow dryer to try to thaw it out to get water flowing again? Good Luck! Dr. Know

Water/Ice Dispenser is not working


Some models need the filter inplace to pass water. First check it again with a new filter in just to be sure the filter isn't clogged. Next... do you hear any click or such noise from the rear of the unit when you push the water dispenser? The solenoid valves may be bad. Also check the valves at the back of the frige to see if the filter screen isn't clogged blocking water from getting into the frige all together. Let us know what you find and post again.
