In addition, make sure that the temperature inside the freezer is maintained at the proper temperature. Freezer temperature should be between 0 – 10 degrees Fahrenheit. If the freezer is too cold, water supply may freeze.

Cause 2 – Water inlet valve.

The water inlet valve opens up to supply water to the dispenser. If the water inlet valve is faulty or if the water pressure is too low; the water valve will not open. The valve requires at least 20 psi to function properly. Make sure that the water pressure in the water inlet is at least 20 psi. If the water pressure is sufficient, use a multimeter to test continuity in the water inlet valve. If the water inlet valve has no continuity, replace it.

To determine if the door switch is faulty, use a multimeter to test continuity. If the switch has no continuity when it’s activated, replace it.
