Water dispenser problem?

Last week the water was coming from my dispenser slower and slower every day. Today it stopped completely. I by-passed water filter, I replaced it with bypass plug, as always during the replacement process some water ammount came out of the filter installation socket. I assume if there is water presence in the system up to filter, then I have problem somewhere after filter, most probably dispenser? Ice maker and ice dispenser working as designed. What is solution of my problem?

    After replacing filter, the water flow completely stopped. I have also had many of the same fan variation speed problems reported by many others. This refrigerator has had problems since the day I bought it. I will never buy another GE refrigerator, or microwave for that matter. The microwave completely failed after about 2 years of use. Not good.

Grandfunk, by your post, it sounds like the line is frozen over. You will have to do some tests. First rule out the dispenser itself. While someone is calling for water see if you have 120V to the water valve. If you do, we ruled out the dispenser. Behind the toe panel there should be a water line with a john guest fitting going up the door. Disconnect it there and call for water. Catch it with a cup. If the water is flowing there, you might be frozen up in the door. I have found a couple of these models with that problem. If it's not flowing there, behind the lower drawers in the refrigerator section is the water coil tubing. Take a hair dryer and go over it lightly. It could be frozen over there. Check these things first and post back. Catriver.

Hello, I have a frigidaire side by side fridge and freezer ( LGUS2642LF2). Water stopped coming out of the dispenser and the ice cubes are coming out but is taking a very long time. I first replaced the...

Good Morning Friend,

I understand that you are having trouble with receiving water out of the dispenser area of your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# LGUS2642LF2.I also see that you have changed the water filter as well as checked and replaced the inlet valve with no positive results, other than it sounds like it wants to dispense water and makes a humming sound. I suggest resetting your refrigerator, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your homes circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Once power has been restored, try getting water out of the dispenser. If you are still having trouble, I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose your appliance and determine what the cause of your refrigerator not dispensing water. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Kenmore Coldspot refrigerator Model #57282791 no water from dispenser

When was the last time you changed the fridge water filter. Sounds like its blocked if no water is coming out of the hose at the bottom front. Also depending on the fridge design two other culprits are possible.the electric switch that is pressed that cativates the water valve to open and let water pass and the second the water valve itself. I would lean toward the water valve at the back of the fridge, as you said it was getting worse over time u til it just stopped.

Grinds beans, won't dispense water sometimes

I just had this problem. I took apart the brew chamber and cleaned under the screens and everything else I could get to along the path of the water. These areas were completely filled with gum residue and solids. I'm guessing that when they dry out, the water can pass through for a little bit. After a cup or two, they go back to blocking off the water flow.

Water Dispenser and Ice Maker

Have you checked the pressure limiting valve which protects the filter from over pressure? It could be blocked/faulty. Have you checked the inlet on the valve assembly? It may be clogged up. Try bypassing the filter all together to determine if the filter is faulty.
