The heat from the light bulb dried out the plastic hose on the dispenser. the tubing is 1/4 in and I used a brass compression fitting brass insert . I cut off the head of the insert so the tube was round and could be used to join a short piece of plastic tubing to the existing plastic tube in the door. Cut off the damaged section of tubing in the door and replace that length with new plastic tube. Push the brass insert halfway into the new plastic tube and then into the existing tube in the door. Route the tube into the original metal part on the door and it's done.
If the light and ice dispenser on the front panel works and If your fridge is 4 years old or older, the insulation in the freezer door has most likely deteriorated and the water in the tube feeding the water dispenser has probably frozen. Open the freezer door, put a blanket over the food to keep it from defrosting, and use a blow dryer to defrost the door. Blow the hot air on the flat panel inside the door (the backside of the water dispenser). Close the door about every 5 minutes to check to see if the water works. Once the water begins to flow, you have successfully defrosted the ice in the tube. Defrosting the door works for about 12 hours until it freezes again. To solve this problem, I placed a 10" weedeater line up thorugh the dispenser nozzle leaving about 1/8 of an inch sticking out. When the line freezes again, pull out the weedeater line, dispense water to free the ice, and then reinsert the weadeater line. I keep the line in all the time...it works great! If the light or ice dispenser do not work, the problem may be *********** board.
1) remove the tubing connector behind refrig kickplate . Press for water . If no water comes from tube under refrig , then possibly frozen tank but probably not . Probably bad water inlet valve . ( tank is in the lower potrion of the refrig section behind the crispers ) .
2) if water does shoot out , then your freezer door is frozen which requires leaving door open and tapeing light switch closed and tape plastic around freezer section opening so fridge will continue to operate normally . Thawing freezer door could take a day or 2 . 3) You can plug the hoses back togather and walk by occasionally pressing water untill comes out . Lower your freezer temperature setting also ( could be set for too cold)
The problem is in the water valve.
The water supply line going to the Ref is connected to a water valve. This valve is not shutting off completely which causes water to drip into the ice maker. This dripping will freeze and eventually completely block the fill tube in the freezer.
IF THE WIRES SHORTED, AND THE DOOR WAS REPLACED,
WAS IT COMPLETE OR WAS THE DISPENSER ASSEMBLY TRANSFERRED TO THE NEW DOOR? IF THE ASSEMBLY ISN'T NEW, THE CONTROL BOARD IN THE ASSEMBLY MAY HAVE BEEN DAMAGED FROM THE WIRE SHORT.
Had the same problem. No water to the dispenser. After removing the grate at foot of refrigerator was able to get water to bottom of tube. Careful with the funky little coupling, push the white ends inward to disconnect. Turned off refergerator for awhile and used a blow dryer to warm up the dispenser area from the outside. Be careful not to damage plastic by over heating. Also tried to warm the exterior of door but not sure if that helped. Used a hand activated vacuum pump on the water exit spout. Took a long time but evidently the water just prior to the spout had frozen. Had run a small metal wire up the tube from the bottom and it went nearly to the area of the dispenser so I don't think there had been any ice except at the area around the dispenser spout.
Hope this helps.
The light is supposed to flash twice with a 1 second
intermission. When the fridge door is closed the light stays
ON. Check this by pushing the white flap to the right of the
icemaker while the door is open
