The flow was very weak
There was some leaking and orig thought it was the valve
no ice also at same time
leak and ice problem ended up being frozen inlet within freezer
Had ordered the valve so figured it would at least fix the slow flow problem on the dispenser
That was the problem with the ice maker but not the dispenser
The dispenser had been slow flow for a long time
I thawed the inlet to the freezer with a hair dryer and got it working
Thought the dispenser issue and freezer issue were not the same cause
Why would it have gone from slow flow to no flow with new valve?
They were color coded - brown and yellow
I was worried about the tubes but they were diff sizes as well
Did that last week as a first resort
My wife did it so prob not
let me try that now
I do not see any line to the dispenser by the door
it seems to be all internal
no luck on the purge - I hear the filter fill back up but none out of the dispenser
no water tube by the door hinge
so only option is empty it and let it sit open
I see the tubing in the back behind the drawers
Can I disconnect there and test it
Looks like quick connect
intestine looking tubes are full of water
the tank is full of water and I can move water when I shake it but no water comes out when I disconnect line out from it
100% certain it is frozen lines?
shut off fridge and starting to get little bit of water from dispenser
I am starting to get water out of dispenser just real slow flow
I would need to dig for the bypass
Any idea why the water would start to flow at this point?
I have a meter but not sure I still have the bypass
need to get get the meter
what level AC voltage
I have 10/50/250/500 settings on meter
The larger tub went to yellow wires
I hooked up meter and had her hit the disp button and no reading on meter
I put the wires on the two leads that the plug goes into. There is a hole on each of them
I just realized what you were asking. I need to test the wire not the connection
Sorry about that. I got a reading pretty close to what you said. I had it on 250 and the meter went 1/2 way
So valve is good and lines are frozen basically?
If the defrost does not work what is left?
Alright - I will try a defrost this weekend and see what happens
hope the hell that is it.
k - thx for your patience
Have a good oone
