Water Dipenser is not working

Suddenly the water is not dispensing. This has been like this for 3-4 weeks now. Ice maker works. Ice dispenser works. Checked water filter. replaced it. Bypassed it. Still water does not dispense. Can it be a bad solonoid? How can I troubleshoot this. Any advice. Thanks in advance

Ajay, couple of things you want to check. First thing is to check the reservoir itself. Remove the drawers on the refer side and see if the tubing is frozen up. It will be on the back side of the refer compartment. Take a hair dryer and go lightly across the plastic coils for a while and then try to dispense the water. The ice-maker line and water line are seperate. As long as you hear the water lever paddle making the switch, you should be ok there. Next would be the valve itself. You can ohm it out, check for continuity or take a cheater cord 120V. across the terminals and see if the valve operates. Be very carefull with the cheater as you are working with live voltage...Catriver..post back.

    I have a similar problem ....however, I can use the cheater cord and the valve opens up and the water goes into the tray, and it will freeze, and then it ejects the cubes. But when I try it automatically, the water valve will not open up! No water goes into the tray. My volt meter shows 98vac across the solenoid! I am not sure where the problem is? Does anyone have a solution to this?

Check water valves on back of fridge, one is for the ice maker and other is for water dispenser. Need to get the correct and complete model number listed on front and near floor behind the fresh food door. Problem may be the water valve in back or the dispenser switch on the front. let me know and I will try to get it going for you.
