On the bottom of the freezer door you will find a clear hose. Follow the hose and you wil find a connector. Disconnect it and place on small pan. Activate the water switch on door and see if water comes out. The problem is on the line going from bottom of freezer door up to dispenser. Some models water line is close to extruded door(miss manufacturing) cover and the line freezes over. This is a manufacturing fault from GE and unfortunatelly the whole door must be replaced

Re: water dispenser is extremely S L O W
Check no ice build up in bottle but the most likely cause is poor water pressure on the inlet. no cure except to improve water pressure. if there is a valve in the input water line, check it is fully open

I assume water is connected and turned on. If so, you will have to have to select water on display or switch and then hold glass on actuator for until water starts coming out. It may take a couple minutes. Keep filling glass as many times as it takes to get all air from lines.
My family has enjoyed the convenience and health benefits of drinking bottled water for several years. We have used a drinking appliance where the bottled is upturned and the water is gravity-fed. The water is then heated and cooled and served from hot and cold spigots. (I've seen other types of dispensers when the bottle goes upright inside the cabinet and is pumped into the water pitcher.)
The heated water quit working recently but the refrigerated part was OK. After noting how some members of my family used the dispenser, I have solved the problem. It is caused by the water level running too low in the mini water heater causing the element to burn out. Low water doesn't harm the mini-frig part. Low water levels are caused by using the bottle past empty and continuing to take water until it almost stops coming out. This "starves" the water heater, consequently burning out the element! Always replace the bottle on top before it gets past empty! If it gurgles considerably, it's filling up a nearly empty water tank probably with a burned-out element.
Maybe manufacturers can address this problem of too low water levels in subsequent models.
The discs tell the machine how much water to dispense through the disc. Some discs dispense a small amount for an Espresso, others give a larger drink. Normal cups will not fill, you need smaller coffee cups for most Tassimo drinks.
Check the packet to see how much it dispenses and check with a measurement jug to see if it is working properly, you may be surprised to find it is working fine.
First, I'm Not a Saeco Representative, though I have worked on some Saeco machines.
** Most cases of one side not dispensing coffee is usually coffee that has dried and built up over time to coat the least used spout. This is caused by the machine not being flushed or cleaned daily.
** Follow the MFR's daily cleaning instructions to keep you unit operating properly.
** fill a glass up of water to the rim and place on drain tray. the water in the cup should be even with the glass lip all around the cup. If it's leaning to one side then your machine (or table it on) needs to be level in order for the spout to dispense evenly. Another way to check is to place 2 shot glasses under each spout and brew a double shot. Both should fill at the same time and be the same amount when finished.
** Check your MFR's kit to see if there is a small brush to allow for nozzle cleaning. Otherwise follow the cleaning instructions and do multiple cleanings to get rid of the coffee residue. Once cleaned you need to maintain a regular cleaning schedule.
** There are no serviceable parts in these small home machines. Suggest contacting your vendor or Saeco for service or replacement.
Does it make ice? If it makes Ice, then you have water to unit. If No Ice and No Water, check water supply. Otherwise, you could have a bad water valve. Remove valve and the line coming off of valve to water reservoir try to dispense water and if valve is good you should have water coming from valve. (have a bucket or bowl handy to catch water).
even though you still have water dispensing you may have a frozen line to the ice-maker, take out your ice-maker and check to see if the feeder tube has ice in it, take a drinking straw and insert it into the feeder tube for the ice-maker and see if you can push it all the way to the valve, it's lite enough not to damage the feeder and strong enough to break up whatever Ice might be blocking the tube
i have a similar problem. my water dispenser worked perfectly with the origional filter for about 8 month . then there was a decrease in water output. i then changed the filter.this worked fine for about 2 weeks . changed the filter again 2 days of water output. i have since changed the filter 2 more time with the same results. i do not have a kinked line . i have had the refer for about 1 1/2 years. ice production is down also . any thoughts?
When you first hook water up to the refrigerator you have to fill a tank in the fridge. Open the water supply behind the ref. turn the control on the front of the ref to water and hold a glass under the spout as if you are filling a glass . You may have to wait 3-4 minutes forthe tank and lines to fill with water before you get any to come out into the glass. The water my be discolored at first so run a few glass full through before drinking . hope this helps
