Question about Frigidaire FGHC2378L Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

We just purchased the Frigidaire FGHC2378LP and hooked up the water line and it worked, no problem. Then we unhooked the water supply from the water shut off valve for 3 days and hooked it back up and now no water will come out of the dispenser. I can here the motor like water should be coming out, but it isn't. The temp of the freezer has gone down to -7 at times, after I have opend the freezer. I should also say that we have been having problems with the frig crisper drawer freezing our vegis and fruits, even with adjusting the drawers, and we are waiting for a part to come to have installed to remedy this, but in the meantime, the customer svc. ppl told me to put the freezer at 3 degrees instead of 0. HELP!!!

Sounds like its frozen, is why you arent getting water unfortunately until you fix temp problem or unplug it to thaw it, its probably not going to work.

HOW TO HOOK UP AND START THE ICE MAKER ON JSI_23


Good Morning Le Morrer,

I see that you are trying to hook up and start the ice maker on your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRS3R5EMB.

To connect Water supply Line to ice Maker inlet valve:
1 Disconnect your refrigerator from the electric power source.
2 Place the end of water supply line into sink or bucket. Turn ON water supply and flush supply line until water is clear. Turn OFF water supply at shutoff valve.
3 Remove plastic cap from water valve inlet and discard cap.
4 If you use copper tubing - Slide brass compression nut, then ferrule (sleeve) onto water supply line. Push water supply line into water valve inlet as far as it will go (1/4 inch/6.4mm). Slide ferrule (sleeve) into valve inlet and finger tighten compression nut onto valve. Tighten another half turn with a wrench; DO NOT over tighten.
If you use stainless steel tubing - The nut and ferrule are already assembled on the tubing. Slide compression nut onto valve inlet and finger tighten compression nut onto valve. Tighten another half turn with a wrench; DO NOT over tighten.
5 With steel clamp and screw, secure water supply line (copper tubing only) to rear panel of refrigerator as shown.
6 Coil excess water supply line (copper tubing only) about 2 and 1/2 turns behind refrigerator and arrange coils so they do not vibrate or wear against any other surface.
7 Turn ON the water supply at shutoff valve and tighten any connections that leak.
8 Reconnect your refrigerator to electrical power source.
9 To turn the ice maker on, lower wire signal arm (side mounted) or set the ice maker's ON/Off power switch to the "I" position (rear mounted).

After connecting the water supply, you will need to prime the water supply system.
To Prime The Water Supply System:
1 Begin filling the tank by pressing and holding a drinking glass against the water dispenser paddle.
2 Keep the glass in this position until water comes out of the dispenser. There will be noticeable spurts and sputters as the system pushes air out through the system and dispenser nozzle. This is normal. This may take about 1 and 1/2 minutes.
3 Continue dispensing water for about 3 minutes to flush the system of any air and impurities. Empty the glass as needed.


The water dispenser has a built-in device that shuts off the water flow after 3 minutes of continuous use. To reset this shutoff device, simply release the dispenser paddle. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

How to install the water for the ice maker


To hook up an water supply to an ice maker falls under two catagories. The first being that a water supply valve is already present behind the machine and therefore all you have to do is get a water line, preferably a braided steel ice maker line that can be purchased at home depot or lowes. Then you just sonnect the water line to the water supply at the wall the to the water valve on the machine, located on the lower right or left side in the back. The second scenario is yoo don't have a supply line, and in that case your going to have to locate the nearest water line, most likely under the sink, and you'll have to run a line. They have an ice maker installation kit at home depot and lowes, and you may have to drill a hole through the cabinet to make the line unseen, or even through the floor and back up again. Either way its not a difficult task, just takes time and patience. Good luck.

Bosch dishwasher SHX46 won't fill with water


My model is actually a SHX46 but I was able to piece together some advice off of this site. This is what I did. I removed the toe plate and then I soaked up all the water that I could out of the white pan at the bottom. Then I unhooked the water supply line so that I could pull the dishwasher out. Once I got it out, I tipped it forward to drain out the rest of the water. I then unhooked the drain line that was connected to the disposal and cleaned it out with a "Snake line" I then hooked everything back up and it worked. Thanks so much for this website, I know it saved me a ton of $$$$$$$$$.

Filtered water quit working on my Frididaire side by side


although you had waterto the bottom of door when disconnected, did you try to dispense water while unhooked andsee it flow??? because just unhooking it will allow the resivoir of stord water to flow out by gravity, giving false sense of water working., if indeed it did work the you have a frozen water lin within the freezer door itself, ait tricky to defrost. aside form unplugging unit and allow to thaw out, or pulling line form liner not going to be easy to thaw the line. if you indded still hear the "hum" after disconnectng water under door, then it soundsas if you have a bad water inlet valve located behind refrig where the water atteachges to the refric, no repairingthe valve it needs replacing
