A big perk of modern refrigerators is your water dispenser. It gives you the convenience of cold, filtered water and keeps you from wasting countless plastic bottles. But neither of those things are bottle is your refrigerator doesn’t dispense water to begin with. If you’re experiencing this problem, these may be some reasons why.
Why is My Refrigerator Not Dispensing Water?
Frozen Water Tube
This can be diagnosed by trying to run air through the tube in the door and seeing if it passes through. If it doesn’t, the tube will have to be thawed to allow water to flow through it again.
Fault Water Inlet Valve
The water inlet valve opens to allow water into the dispenser. The valve stops opening if it becomes faulty or if there isn’t enough water pressure. Fixing this problem involves replacing the valve and/or adjusting the water pressure to the proper level.
Faulty Dispenser Control Board
The control board in your fridge is in charge of most of the functions of you water dispensing system. If it’s faulty, the entire system could stop working. There may be only one part that’s not working, so each part will have to be tested.
Clogged Water Filter
If your refrigerator’s water filter is clogged, it can prevent your water dispenser from working. Make sure to replace your filter twice a year to avoid this problem and keep your water clean.
