Customer Question

I have an LG french door fridge with 2 drawer freezer. The in door ice maker is making ice and dispensing, but the water portion is not dispensing. It sounds like the water is engaging when depressed, but not dispensing.

Hi, when this happens it's usually because the water tank is frozen. The water tank is inside the refrigerator section behind the lower drawers. Use a blow dryer and slowly heat the tank up. If the tank is not frozen, the water valve on the back is going to be the culprit. The water valve has two solenoids. One for water at the door and one for the ice. It's one assembly. It's on the back and has plug and play wires and the hoses are as well. It's a very straight forward repair. It sounds like the tank is frozen though based on your complaint.
