How to get to ice/water dispenser?

I need to get to the ice/water dispenser to see if I can adjust it. How do you take off the front panel? It seems to be snapped into place, but I don't want to pull too hard in case it breaks. Is there a special technique involved?

How to remove front panel for ice and water on my GE GFE27GGDA

Turn off the water valve that provides water to the dispenser by turning the valve clockwise. ...

Pour 3 cups of white vinegar into the tube. ...

Empty the ice cube holder and adjust the lever on the ice cube maker to the "On" position.

I have a LG LFX31935st and the ice maker will not dispense ice. It makes it, just wont dispense. Also, water seems to be leaking into one of the Produce/Meat drawers inside the fridge.

Possibly a clogged piece of ice from water leakage preventing the dispensing of ice. If you haven't tried taking the ice bucket out and rinsing it under hot water to get all the frozen ice out, you should.

Lowering the water pressure to the fridge by turning the knob on the connection at the wall should help prevent the excess water and clogging going forward. There is a very small change between almost off and just on, where the water will still dispense from the front of the fridge but you can tell that the pressure is less, that should give the desired results. It may take some trial and error by testing the water flow from the door while adjusting the valve at the wall.

The water pressure adjustment may help with the flooding problem under the meat/cheese drawer as well, but most likely you have a clogged drain too because it's a very common issue with these fridges. There should be a panel on the bottom back of the fridge with 3 or 4 Phillips head screws that opens access to the drain tubes which are just about in the horizontal center. The drain tubes are little white plastic tubes with flexible bulges (they look like really oversized whitish/clear bendy straws). They are about 5 inches long each and you will probably see a bunch of gunk at the bottom where they enter the plastic evaporation tray. There is a rubber grommet with a flap on the end of them that needs to be cleaned out, and there may even be some ice formed in the tube that needs to be cleaned out. This will take a bit of time and patience while crouching or on your knees, so be ready for that and have towels ready for excess water. I found a turkey baster and a glass of warm water to be very helpful as well.

Why has Freezer/Refrigerator stopped dispensing ice & water through front panel?

check your filter , check the hoses to the water under front an back of fridge

Hello David ,

Their are a few possible reason the ice is not being dispensed,

1) the door switch is bad...the door must be closed for the ice to dispense and perhaps the switch thinks the door is open

2) the switch that is activated when pushing the lever on the dispenser is bad

3) the dispenser motor is bad

4) the control board is bad

Adjusting Ice Maker Fill

Use a flat-head screwdriver to remove the screws on the ice maker's front access panel, and then remove the panel.

  • Locate the adjustment screw, located about mid-point on the side of the ice maker. Do not turn the crew more than one full turn in either direction.
  • Turn the screw clockwise ½ turn to decrease the water fill level.
  • Turn the screw counterclockwise ½ turn to increase the water fill level.
  • Close the access panel and restore the screws. Turn the refrigerator back on.

    Water drips out of the front ice / water dispenser.

    Four possibilities are the water control valve for ice maker is leaking while off, you have a leak in ice maker, time on ice maker needs adjusting if the mechanical type, If electronic not much can be adjusted and if you refrigerator is leaning, Let me know if when you unplug the water control valve if it still flows, Thanks, Sea Breeze

    Water dispenser on front of refrigerator door does not dispense water. Ice Cube maker continues to make ice cubes. Defrosting doesn't fix problem.

    Water dispensing solenoid is bad. You need to replace the solenoid valve. This typically is independent of the ice maker.

    Ice maker and water dispenser front panel lost power

    Check the power connection for the door.. It is either under the hinge cover on the top or under the kick plate in the bottom.. Just un plug and re plug if it seems like the wires are fine

    Good luck

    Kenmore Refrigerator stopped dispensing water

    Look up through the ice despencer on the front door of the freezer. Is the flapper door open? If so it needs to be fixed. If its not then try leaving the freezer door open for 3+ hours to defrost the frozen line in the door. If that doesnt work, the water valve must be changed.(located behind fridge, take off back cord board panel at bottom, the valve is blue)... GOODLUCK!
