Water dispenser inside fridge does not dispense water

I just had my plumber install my fridge in a new house but we can't make the water dispenser dispense water. I have the freezer bottom single door fridge with a small water dispenser inside the left interior wall as you open the fridge to the right. Can you tell me a dyi fix for this problem?

    We have the same problem with our new KitchenAid bottom freezer refrig. (not the same model, but an interior dispenser.) We can thaw the line with a hair dryer but then it freezes again. After reading some of the comments on GE products with the same problem (GE has come up with a line heater of some sort for this design defect) I'm thinking that this is a KitchenAid design defect as well. The repairman has been here 3 times and no fix so far.

Are the water inlet / outlet correctly fitted onto the filter ??
Sounds silly - but very easy mistake seen several times.
Is the water supply for the filter turned on . . remove hoses from filter to verify. - YOU WILL GET WET.

No Water going in to the fridge


Hi Norm,

Most fridges don't need a motor to run in order to dispense water. A simple on / off solenoid on the water line (same for the ice maker) that makes a click when changing from off to on and on to off is usually all anyone hears (the ice maker makes rumbling sounds and you can hear ice falling into the bin - too).

Check for ice. If it has a maker and it is making ice, the problem could be a defective water dispenser switch, solenoid or other circuit component or wire. If no ice, I'd suspect a filter or water supply issue.

Make sure the filter is fully inserted and twisted into place. Many filters have marks to align when 1) inserting and 2) to let you know when it is installed correctly. When sure it is installed correctly - try to dispense water again. Many fridges will dispense water without a filter. Check your manual before trying this though! If not working still, remove the filter and try to dispense water. If you're able to dispense water, the problem is either the installation of the filter or the filter itself. Try to re-install it correctly. Try to dispense water again.

If it still doesn't work - call the plumber back and ask why there's no water. Or - try this yourself:

Locate the point of attachment to the domestic water supply that the plumber used. There should be a valve to turn the water on and off. If off, turn ON. Try to dispense water again.

If that doesn't work - check to see if the fridge has pinched, kinked or crushed the water supply line. You may need to move the fridge forward to gain access to the water line and connection point on the fridge. Repair or replace the line as needed and route in such a way that moving the fridge in or out will not cause it to damage the line again.

Good luck!

Just installed a new Bosch fridge, ice dispenser dispenses ice but water does not dispense?


Make sure it has water on the container and no obstruction on the water dispenser. Try several times. Since it was new unit, sometimes water has not yet completely fill the dispenser tubing hence it will not dispense water.
Look for some carton, foam or plastic obstruction around the dispenser, it may cause hindrance of not flowing water from dispenser into the glass.
Thanks for asking.

I just received my new Whirlpool side-by-side refrigerator with in door water and ice dispensers. How do I connect the water to the refrigerator?


Connects at back of fridge. bottom left corner you will see a compression fitting, you need to connect to house hookup. If you had it delivered they should have hooked it up for you, unless you don't have a house hookup behind fridge. Then in this case you would need a plumber to run water to fridge. Or you can buy a kit at lowes or homedepot and do it yourself.

GE GSS22JFMC when I press the water button it leaks


That's where the water line runs to get to the dispenser. You may have to remove the cardboard backing to see it. The line runs from the water inlet valve. That's where the supply line from the house connects to the fridge. One line goes up to the ice maker and the other goes over to the fridge side where it goes inside the fridge behind the crisper to a reservoir where the water is chilled before it goes to the dispenser. Look for the water coming out when someone else tries the dispenser. Look for a fitting that has come loose.

New gc2227hek5 will not dispense ice/water


You should call service for this problem. It may be as simple as the wires are not connected to the micro switch but the dispenser will need to be taken apart to see what is going on. If it is new you have a 1 yr warranty and will be covered.
