No water to dispenser or ice maker


Please help! I just had the RO serviceman out and he told me it was not the RO water pressure going to the fridge (the RO is coming out of the wall behind the fridge at 30psi), so it is a fridge problem. (Can't afford ANOTHER service call right now -- but we really need some ice in AZ!)

No water to water dispenser in front door of fridge, and no water going into ice maker. We have a 2 1/2 year old Fridgidaire side by side, and replaced the fridge water filter with a dummy filter the first time out (since the RO was going to the fridge anyway).

THANKS FOR ANY ASSISTANCE!
Shannon

Did they quit at the same time? Water has been confirmed comming into the fill valve(s) at the refrigerator? Ice dispensor still comes on?

The model #: FRS26LF7DSR

The ice maker still comes on (we have it turned off right now, because it made a couple very tiny ice cubes...). If you hold the water dispenser on for quite a while, you will get a little trickle of water??

Water is coming into the fill valve at the back of the fridge at 30 psi.

Thanks!

Eeeeck, water and ice with diodes in the circuit....can be difficult to check/diagnose.

Good.

Kinda -sounds- more like poor/low/restricted water pressure!
Clogged/tired filter, kinked line, clogged fill valve, bad fill valve, filter bypass would be prime suspects.

You hope. -Sounds- like you are getting power to the fill valves when someone holds a glass to the water paddle, need to check water in and through the fill valves to see where that pressure is lost.

Thanks for your replies. We discovered it was the solinoid at the back of the fridge. So, my husband bought a new part at Lowe's, hooked it up, and the water is now flowing fine.

Great!
