Question about Refrigerators
I have a Fridgidaire FRS26KF7A, manuf 05/01. a few weeks ago the water dispenser in the freezer door started to drip, but very high volume slow drip (about a cup an hr). i couldnt fix it at the time since i recently broke my hand. now that i have tried to take it apart/reassemble, the water starts to spray out full force each time the ice cube tray inside fills with water! any ideas? tried: removing the assembly, (attempting, but dont really know how to)test the rocker switches for the actuater arms, replacing filter,
The part number you are going to need is 241734302. This is the water valve located in the back of the machine. Whats going on is the solenoid for the dispenser isn't seating properly and when the icemaker calls for water the pressure is enough to push through and come out the door as well

I found that the door on the GE side by side doors are not accessable and cannot be repaired if a water line inside the door is defective. The entire door must be replaced at a cost of almost $370. The problem, which seems to be quite common relative to the lack of water at the dispenser, is the result of the water tube in the door freezing due to excess cold levels in the freezing compartment. This is probabley due to poor insulation around the water line as in exits near the ice dispenser gate. The solution is simple, lower the freezing level and use water frequently to keep it from freezing. Also, keep the lines clean by changing the filter often if the local water source is laden with particulates. I think GE should foot the bill for changing doors or re-engineer the doors to access the area where the water line makes contact with the cold surface of the inside panal.

More than likely, your water line is freezing up in the door. You can remove all of the ice cubes and lower the freezer temp to about 3. Leave the freezer door open for about 5 minutes or so and if this does not work, leave the door open a little longer. Also, disconnect the water line at the base of the freezer door, near the floor, and press the dispenser lever. If you have water there, you most likely have a frozen line in the door. Changing the water filter often will help but it is not the answer and is can get quite expensive. By the way, Make sure to hold the dispenser lever forward for at least a couple of minutes each time you test for water flow. If you do not get water at the connector at the base of the door after you have disconnected the line, you have a problem with the valve in the back of the refrigerator.
