The icemaker and water dispenser on your fridge are a great convenience.  But they are pretty complex components of your Washington DC refrigerator, so it is possible that they will occasionally need repairs. Some common ice maker and water dispenser problems include:

  • No Water from Water Dispenser: this problem can be caused by a number of different factors. The water tube could be leaking or your water filter could be clogged. You could also have a blockage in your water inlet valve. Most of these repairs will require a professional appliance repair person to fix.
  • Ice Maker Not Producing Ice: The simplest cause of this problem is that the ice maker has been turned off. There is a wire or red lever on the right side of the ice maker that should be in the lowered position. If it is in the raised position, your ice maker will stop working. If this doesn’t appear to be the source of the problem, your freezer maybe to too warm. Make sure the temperature is below 8 degree Fahrenheit. If your freezer is a higher temperature, call a professional to examine your freezer to see what is causing the problem.
  • Ice Maker Producing Small Ice Cubes: If your ice maker is producing small ice cubes or too few ice cubes, it can be caused by a problem with the water inlet valve or a clogged water line. A professional can test both the water line and the water inlet valve to determine the source of issue.

In general, water dispenser and ice maker problems need to be handled by a professional. For any refrigerator repair you need in the Washington DC area, give All Time Services a call!
