frigidaire refrigerator door water dispenser
 
the door dispenser won't dispense water, but ice is still being made and dispensed.

Bad dispensor switch, frozen water tank/reservoir, bad fill valve, broken mechanical mechanism in the dispensor.....would have to be investigated.

the funny thing is that it worked great until the day we moved. we disconected at our old house and at our new house nothing. it's not
froze up, and when you push the switch it sounds good like it's coming
......then nothing.

A mostly mechanical style dispensor, easier to service :)

Where the doors removed? Maybe a line got kinked? Checked the connection where it enters the freezer door at the bottom hinge?

Maybe an air lock?
Check/remove the filter and reinstall the filter and retest.

you are the man!
 
in checking if the line got kinked i found a spot between the bottom door hinge and the water outlet that would not let my snake pass by. (i used the line you use on your everyday weedeater to run up the water tube) it was
a frozen resevoir. i thawed it out with a hair dryer and have water again!
many thanks!!!!!
