I have a frigadare side by side FSC23R5DWO and we just moved into the house the water was off and the frig was open we closed the frig and turned on and the water was turned on about the same time. The issue is small amounts of water come out the door when water depressed and the icecubes are very small and not many i believe we turned the water on and there was air in the line and now its froze up how do you unfreeze it and get it going again.

Hi jbland9941,

The Fill tube for the Ice Maker may be froze. There is a tube that runs up the back wall of your fridge and enters the cabinet through a hole right behind the ice maker. If you look at the ice machine inside your freezer you will notice a tube entering it from the rear wall. This is the tube I'm talking about. Inspect the tube carefully with a flashlight to see if it's blocked with ice. If so, there's your problem. Use a hairdryer to thaw it out and your machine will be making ice before you know it. But first, remember your safety before doing anything.

Also, if the water filter is clogged then it does not let any water through. Most of water filters must be replaced every six months.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using Fixya.

How do you change the water filter on Maytag MF12568AES?


Check top right inside of frig. Filer is inside the housing; open door turn filter counter-clockwise, the housing should allow you to lower filter to change it out. Place new filter, turn clockwise, push back into place and close door.

On humid days water puddles in the bottom of the frig.


Sounds like the door is not closing properly so humid air is coming into the fridge OR door not closing properly and the humid air is condensing around the door so it is leaking the condensation OR

The water from the defrost cycle is not evaporating so it overflows from the evaporator pan above the compressor. You better call a service technician before getting some floor damage (Do not call A&E)

GE Profile refrigerator side by side, water and ice through door. Ice maker works fine, water will not shut off. Had to turn water to frig off.


The water inlet valve on the back where the water supply connects to the unit is stuck open. You may can clean the valve out and get it to closing or just replace it.

My Maytag side by side with water dispenser and ice maker doesn't work. We bought a house - never lived in - and the fridge and freezer work fine. We replaced the water filter and find that no water comes...


The sadle valve is located on the copper pipe where the tube attaches to your water pipe in the house. Shut the water off at the saddle valve. Remove the hose from the rear of the frig on the water inlet valve and put it into a pail. Tunr the water on at the saddle valve and see how fast the water comes out. Some times if the saddle valve is installed on the bottom of the copper pipe they will get corrosive and restrict water flow. Open and close the valve several times to make sure it is clear and reinstall the hose to the rear of the frig. Turn the water back on to see if it works.

How to increase water dispenser pressure


I've found that the dispenser pressure is directly related to the position of the water supply valve. If the shut off valve at the house water pipe that supplies water to the frig is not open completely or is partially blocked, you will get poor pressure at the dispenser. Open the valve more or replace it.

The ice dispensor and water dispensor on my GE Profle side by side refrigerator quit working.


Did you check the filter ? If it has been a few years, the filter can be clogged. Also, the water line connection valve may be internally blocked. If it is a tap-valve I suggest you turn it fully closed and then reopen it; this may break free any deposits that have built-up and clog the small opening. But before you reopen the valve, disconnect the line where it attaches to frig and let the first quart of water flow into a container to fluch away any particles before allowing it to flow into frig system.Can also be that the inlet selenoid valve or its wiring connections and switches are not working. You must hear a click sound when you touch the dispensor handle for water. Good luck, Macgivor

I have a JCD 2289 AE side by side. The freezer has water at the bottom rear that has frozen. How do I turn off the freezer and not the refigerator to defrost it and what could the cause be for the water


Just unplug the frig and open the freezer and let it defrost. Put the frozen items in the frig to keep them cold. Keep the frig closed if possible. You can assist the defrosting by blowing a window fan into the freezer. The room temp will defrost it quickly, or set a blow dryer on LOW and direct toward ice. Careful don't take the chance and turn that dryer on heat. And DO NOT CHIP ICE with a sharp object (patience is free). You may need to physically remove the water as the ice melts. - The source of the ice is probably condensation, or if it happens very quickly, there may be a ice maker leak. Once defrosted replace the frozen items and watch for cause of ice.

Freezer works but frig is not cooling


I don't know this particular frig, but evidently the defroster doesn't work. Frost buildup has blocked the flow of cold air.

There is a defrost timer, under the frig, accessible from the front. You can turn it with a screw driver. Turn it till you hear a click. If the timer hasn't been turning, that should turn on the defroster, a heating element nested among the freezer coils. Wait half an hour and if it is defrosting, water should be dripping into the drip pan underneath the frig. If so, then replace the defrost timer and you're good to go.

If that doesn't make it defrost, then the problem is probably the defrost thermostat, in with the freezer coils. When the frig defrosts, the defrost heater stays on until the defrost thermostat gets warm. It should be open circuit while warm. But if it is open circuit while cold, it is bad and is the cause of your defrost problem.

If you open up the freezer coils, use a hair dryer to defrost. That is safer than hot water.

Hope you can fix it.
