Refrigerator Water and Ice Dispenser Issues
Posted On: May 3, 2022

A water and ice dispenser can be a really convenient refrigerator feature, but only when it’s working.


Let’s look at some common water and ice dispenser issues, and what to do about them.


WATER AND ICE DISPENSER
Dispensing warm water
Here are some possible reasons for this:


A large amount of water was just dispensed. That will deplete the water reservoir and the new water will need time to chill.


  • Dispenser is not used regularly. Water will not be as chilled at first. Dump the first glass of water and try again
  • Refrigerator is not connected to a cold water supply line. Make sure it has not been hooked up to the hot water line instead
  • Water and ice issues

Make sure "water" or "ice" has been selected. Also make sure the water supply is properly connected to a cold water supply and the water shutoff valve is fully opened.


If the issue is ice, make sure the ice maker is turned on and the ice storage bin is properly in place. Also make sure ice is not jammed in the ejector arm of the ice maker and the ice dispenser chute is not clogged. You can clean the ice dispenser chute with a warm, damp cloth. Dry thoroughly.


If these issues aren’t the problem, here are some more possible causes.


Control Lock is on
This deactivates the dispenser controls and comes in handy around small children or pets and while you’re cleaning the area. If the controls are locked, press and hold To Lock for three seconds to unlock them.
