    Thanks for your kind reply. My refrigerator is a food center with a built in ice maker. The freezer is working fine but the ice dispenser is not dispensing any ice at all.

I'm assuming that you're telling me that the freezer is not cold and that the unit has defrosted. Is the compressor running? If not, it may have gone bad, the thermostat may be bad or the defrost timer is stuck or defective. The last one is my favorite but the testing of these issues is complex.

Why has the water dispenser stopped working all of a sudden. Do the lines freeze up or is there an on off function on the control panel


Without knowing what make / model fridge it is nearly impossible to say , however, most domestic fridge have a water tank in the base of the food compartment which stores the water before going into the freezer dispenser. Have a look behind the crisper drawers for it. If the food compartment is too cold, this tank can freeze up and stop water from going into the dispenser. Is it still making ice? If so, the water valve which is normally 2 parts (1 for ice making and the other for water dispensing) may have failed.

I would suggest that the ice bucket has water around the base and that has frozen the bucket bin place . If you can, try filling the bucket with hot water to loosen the ice around the base.

Why is Ice maker for rf26xaewp making ice but it is melting ice to form large cubes and then forcing tray out of lock position


there is usualy a sensor that tells when the ice is ready
and then it melts a little and then releases the ice easy from the tray
perhaps its all jammed up
stop it working for a day or two and give it a good clean with spray water mixed with 5% bleach then plain water
and also check there isnt anything obvious with the tray section mecha wise

i think its got confused somehow
ive even seen ice maker issues caused by poor evaporator tubes from the chiller to the the tray on top of the compressor

so clean the v shaped section at the back and its center tube fully and add some salt
to clean the freezer one you need to fully defrost for a few days and take the back panel off the freezer unit and clean the pipes again salt it

Ice make is not working New water filter as of yesterday, it dispenses water fine for drinking but does not dispense water for ice Model #RS2556RS


This could be a frozen water line that feeds the ice maker. Turn the temperature down on both the freezer and the refridgerator and wait at least 48 hours for the temps to adjust and thaw the line. If you are in a hurry you could turn off the unit and remove all food and then use a hair dryer on the water line to thaw it out. Good luck!

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze, blocking or diverting the water.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

Ice maker filling with water but not freezing into cubes.


Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

Fridge drain is overflowing into base of fridge, causing build-up of ice over base, which then 'sticks' the salad boxes to the base of the fridge, making them difficult to draw out. I have to scrape the...


Some insect would have gone into the drain pipe and blocked the outlet for the water to flow and it gets collected inside.

First please clean the drain pipe and remove any block.

Defrost your refrigerator at least once in three days.

Excess ice formed in the freezer chamber will result in less cooling and melting of ice and make it run down.

The above remedies should solve your problem
