These are the issues that can cause your water not to dispense. Typically it turns out to be something with the water inlet valve or the water filter.

To determine if the water supply tube is frozen, disconnect the tube at the bottom of the door and blow air through it. If air does not pass through, this indicates that the water supply tube is frozen. If the water supply tube is frozen, thaw it out. In addition, ensure that the freezer is kept at the proper temperature. The freezer temperature should be kept from 0-10 degrees Fahrenheit. If the freezer is too cold, the water line may freeze.

The water inlet valve opens to supply water to the dispenser. If the water inlet valve is defective, or if the water pressure is too low, the water valve will not open. The valve requires at least 20psi to function properly. Make sure that the water pressure to the valve is at least 20 psi. If the water pressure is sufficient, use a multimeter to test the water inlet valve for continuity. If the water inlet valve does not have continuity, replace it.

The home may have insufficient water pressure. The water inlet valve supplies water to the water dispenser. The water inlet valve requires a minimum of 20 psi to function properly. Check the water flow and test the pressure to determine if it is at least 20 psi.

A clogged water filter can restrict the flow of water to the dispenser and prevent the dispenser from working properly. The water filter should be replaced about every six months to maintain proper water flow and ensure water quality.

The door switch turns off the ice and water dispenser when the refrigerator door is open. If the door switch fails, the dispenser will not turn on. To determine if the door switch is defective, use a multimeter to test it for continuity. If the door switch does not have continuity when activated, replace it.

No, that is not the issue. The issue is that it could time ues to beep and count down the temperature down then up. The ice works and when we turn off, the water works but then stops working. It's been beeping for 2 hours now
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
That is *continues to beep

It honestly sounds to me like your control board is malfunctioning and causing this issue. I am not sure why else it would be doing what its doing other than that. If you do not find this information helpful I can opt out and open to other experts please do not rate negatively. If you do feel this could be your control board and that makes sense to you all I ask is you to rate with 5 stars. Please let me know how you wish to proceed?

If it's the coneroli board then how do we fix it? And what is the cost and can we fix ourselves?

This is the control board you would need to order? I am not sure if you are interested in replacing it because of the price but if you are I can find the information for installing it.
