Is the Control Lock or Dispenser Lock on?

The dispenser can be turned off for easy cleaning or to avoid unintentional dispensing by small children and pets. The lock feature does not shut off power to the refrigerator, to the ice maker, or to the dispenser light. It simply deactivates the dispenser controls and pad.

Is the correct saddle valve installed?Edit section

  • Having the incorrect saddle valve installed can lead to the issues like low water pressure. 
  • A low volume of water flow will cause small, hollow ice cubes or decreased amount of water dispensed. Be sure to use a ¼" type valve that requires a drilled hole.
  • It is not recommended to use a self piercing type or a 3/16" saddle valve, both of which clog easily. 

Is the water line connected to a water supply and turned on? Edit section

Make sure the water supply is properly connected to a cold water supply and the water shutoff valve is fully opened. 

Check to make sure there are no kinks in the water supply line. A kink in the line can reduce water flow. Straighten the water source line to restore adequate water flow and pressure. To help reduce the chances of a pinched water line, do not push the refrigerator too far back against the wall or cabinet.
