We just bought our house, the refridgerator is an older Frigidaire, "Pure Source," it does not have the manual with it and I don't know the model #. the problem I'm having is there is no water getting to the filter or ice maker. I pulled the main inlet hose off and water sprayed everywhere! (plenty of pressure). I have not gone any further than that because I don't know how the system is set up, if there is a solenoid valve or something like that, there are hoses running all around the fridge, so I didn't know where to begin. Is there a manual available or maybe a simple solution?

Re: no water getting to water filter or ice maker
refrigerator has a duel water valve, one for the ice-maker and one
for the water dispenser (if equipped). the valve that the ice-maker relies on
may be bad, or it could be the ice-maker itself. another thing that could cause it would be
the temperatures in the freezer. the ice-maker will not
call for water until it reaches under 15 degrees. also check the
water tube behind the ice-maker to make sure it is not frozen, blocking more
water from entering. the water does not go to the ice-maker or thru the filter unless the ice-maker turns on the water valve.

Water supply valve may not be completely open. Open valve completely.
Water supply valve may be blocked by foreign material or may not be large enough. Supply valve must have a 1/4" opening for
water to fully supply ice maker. Many self-piercing valves do not have
this big of an opening. Replace water supply valve with one that has a
Water filter may need changing. If equipped with a water filter, replace filter canister or cartridge.
the ice maker slows as the tempt in freezer gets warmer . icw cream get softer ect . ck for ice build up in back of freezer and the evap fan motor may be running to slow causing poor air flow . ck these first . mm
sounds like the drain line for the defrost cycle is plugged. the water is supposedto end up in a pan under the refrig. the drain probably needs to be defrosted and cleaned.located behind the back panel in the freezer compartment
There are a number of things that can cause both the ice and water in the door to stop working. There are two control boards that sit behind the buttons on the dispenser. Either one of them may have failed.
There are several different types of dispensor controls on this refrigerator. You need to download the Factory Repair Manual for your fridge. It will tell you how to remove the dispensor cover and diagnos each board so you know exactly which one to replace. The Repair Manual will be the best source for you at this point.
