SOURCE: Refrigerator won't make ice or dispense water.

HI. your inlet valve must be replaced. it seems to be malfunctioning. i recommend testing this valve.

The water inlet valve is connected by two wires. Label the wire placement on the water inlet valve before disconnecting the wires. The wires are connected to the terminals with slip on connectors

Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If the connectors are corroded they should be replaced.

Inspect the filter screen where the supply line connects. Remove any debris or deposits that may have built up using a toothbrush
or warm running water. If you cannot clear the clog, it will be necessary to replace the valve (the filter is not removable on most inlet valves).


Test the water inlet valve for continuity using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X100 (if available, otherwise use the nearest ohm setting). Place a probe on each terminal. The multimeter should display a reading of 200 to 500 ohms. Close inspection of the inlet valve and especially the coil may reveal the exact ohm resistance rating to test for. If the water inlet valve does not pass this test, it should be replaced.

SOURCE: Refrigerator in-door water dispenser fails to work

First ... your model number is missing some on the end. please check your model number on the machine for the correct lookup of parts.

For your situation I found this model number # FRS22ZRHD1. Take a look at this picture of this models dispensor.
there are 3 switches # QT 2 -- 38a & 38b

this should be close to your model of fridge but you will half to make sure.

and yes you should just replace the bad switch.
Part numbers for the switches for this model # are 218479900 & 241689101

SOURCE: I have a GE Profile

I removed the control panel (2 tabs under the front edge) removed the 4 screws holding on the paddle assembly and removed the assembly. The disk is glued on the back( I used super glue). If it happens in the future I would try to glue it on without removing everything. If you use a mirror you can see the detent where the disk mounts to the paddle and glue it back on. The disks function is to push on the switch that is located behind a gray rubber panel behind the paddle.

I have a GE refrigerator water comes out but it's not making ice. Bought a new filter.model number GAL25JFXN LB


there are several possible causes for your symptom: failed water valve, failed dispenser microswitch, or the line has frozen solid where it runs close to the freezer interior approximately 4 inches from where it dispenses. push a long plastic zip-tie up the water line above the water dispenser paddle. if it stops against an ice blockage you will need the water line heater kit from GE.part#WR49X10173. If there is no blockage, remove the rear service panel and follow your supply line to the water valve...have a helper push the dispenser paddle while you feel the valve body- if there is no hum or vibration you may need a new valve#WR57X10032. things get more complicated if neither of those tips help, time to call a Tech!

The tab that you push to dispense water snapped and is just hanging there. Can I fix this myself?


Good Afternoon Cecilia Soares, thank you for your inquiry!
From the information you have provided the dispenser tab on your Electrolux refrigerator has snapped and you would like to repair it. I am unsure if it is repairable you may need to order the replacement part for your refrigerator. Based off the model number, E23CS75DSS, I have located a parts manual this should help you locate which part may be needed. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

RF4287HA is constantly dispensing water without pushing the paddle. Is this a valve problem? How do I replace that part?


No, you need to replace the solenoid on the door dispenser. Check the model number again. That number is coming up as a range.

My Samsung Model: RF4287HARS refrigerator stopped DISPENSING ice. It makes it, but only water comes out of both push levers now. I get ZERO help from samsung customer service. There is nothing in


The problem is actually in the dispenser lever. The paddle that you press to dispense ice has a plastic lever/arm that extends behind it (you can't see it, it's up high in the assembly.) This plastic lever presses upwards when you push the paddle and presses into a switch. The switch actuates the ice. This little lever is also the ONLY thing that stops the paddle from continuing to press into the water paddle. So when the lever breaks, it creates your two symptoms - no ice and if you press further, you press the water switch and get water.

You need part# DA97-08519A. This is the lever assembly with the switches. You pry the control panel assembly (the whole digital display above the water/ice dispenser) out by inserting a slim pry bar (I used a pocket knife and didn't damage the finish) on one side and working my way around. The assembly is held in place by five plastic tabs (two on each side and one on the top.) When this is removed, the part# above will be obvious.

Broken water dispencer paddle


This part would need to be purchased as a whole dispenser kit, since it is not sold separately.
