maytag fridge water dispenser
« on: September 22, 2011, 01:22:45 PM »
I have a maytag model MSD2554ARW that will not dispense water. I have been remodeling my kitchen the past 3 weeks and had the water supply disconnected. I flushed the line today and hooked back up to the fridge and I have no flow. Is it frozen? Sounds like it is trying to pump but won't.

Behind the crisper drawer is the tubing/container. Use a hair dryer to warm it up, should do it.

Thanks, I will give that a try. I figured it must be something like that since it worked when I shut the water off to it.

I thought I warmed it up enough to thaw any ice out of the tank/lines, still not a drop. I can hear it doing something electrically, just no flow. Any place else they freeze up? Maybe I should pull the tank out and be sure it is thawed out. How do you get the water lines disconnected from the tank if I were to pull it out? Maybe I am not getting water to the tank even. Ant thoughts from anyone are appreciated.

take off kick-plate(just pulls off) and disconect the water line under the freezer door.  Just push in on one side and pull the line out...Have a towel underneath.  Try to dispense water again if nothing comes out reconnect.  Go to the back and disconect the line to water from water valve...again have towel underneath and have someone try the water again.  If water come's out of valve, it's still frozen if not the water valve need's cleaning or replacing(suggest replacing).  There are screen's in the water valve that should not be removed but maybe get away with cleaning.  It's possible with water shut off that a slug of something worked it's way through the line.

No water at the door, but I have plenty after the valve. I just emptied the fridge and I will leave it unplugged for a few hours. Thanks to both of you for the help.
