Water Dispenser not working- PLEASE HELP
« on: November 22, 2011, 09:35:05 AM »
I have a house full up people coming for Thanksgiving and my water quit.

Hotpoint Fridge Mode. HSS25GFPDWW

The icemaker still works. I replaced the double outlet water valve as I thought this was the issue, unfortunately it is not.

When I disconnected the water valve, there was water in the ice maker line but not the water line. Seemed like this was the answer.

I still hear the click when I push the water but nothing is coming out.

Please help. Thank you.

Could be that the water line between the water dispenser in the door and the water valve you replaced is frozen.

Pull the bottom two pans out of the refrigerator so you can see the back wall. Look for a coil of 1/4' plastic water line.
If it's frozen back there you can often warm it up with a hair dryer to thaw it out, it may take longer then you think to warm it up so water flows again.

The line coming into the door ( I disconnected and check the coupler underneath) does not have any water so I dont think it is the coil or that is frozen. I will check though. I pulled the two bottom drawers out of the both the fridge and freezer but cant seem to locate the coil. Any suggestions?

I think I may have it. I disconnected the line coming into the door, turned on the dispenser and the water was flowing. I pulled everything out of the freezer and am leaving the door open to thaw it out.
