There is interior moisture buildup
Is the water shutoff valve not turned on or the water line
connected at the source? Be sure the water shutoff valve is
turned on and the water source is connected to the
refrigerator. See the "Water Supply Connection"section.
Is the water shutoff valve clogged or incorrectly installed?
See the "Water Supply Connection"section.
If clogging or
installation is not a problem, call for service or contact a
plumber.
Is there a kink in the home water source line? If you find or
suspect a kink in the water line, call for service.
Water flow from the dispenser
decreases
noticeably
Is there a water filter installed
on the refrigerator?. The
filter may be full or incorrectly installed. Depending on your
model, remove the water filter cartridge (see the "Interior
Water Filtration System" section). Operate the dispenser. If
the water flow increases noticeably, your filter is full and
needs to be replaced.
Are the air vents blocked in the refrigerator?. Remove any
objects from in front of the air vents. See the "Ensuring
Proper Air Circulation" section for air vent locations.
Are the door(s) opened often? Avoid humidity buildup by
getting all items out at one time, keeping food organized, and
closing the door as soon as possible.
Is the room humid? It is normal for moisture to build up
inside the refrigerator when the room air is humid.
Is the food packaged
correctly? Check that all food is
securely wrapped. Wipe off damp food containers before
placing them in the refrigerator.
Is the control set correctly for the surrounding
conditions? See the "Using the Control(s)" section.
Was a self-defrost cycle completed? It is normal for
droplets to form after the refrigerator self-defrosts.
Water leaking from the dispenser
The doors are difficult to open
Is the glass not being held under the water dispenser long
enough?
Hold the container under the water dispenser two
to three seconds after releasing the dispenser lever. Water
may continue to dispense during this time.
Is there a water filter installed
on the refrigerator?. The
water filtration system may have air in the lines, causing water
to drip. Additional flushing may help clear air from the lines.
Normal dispenser use should flush air from the lines within 24
to 72 hours.
Are the gaskets dirty or sticky?
Clean gaskets and the
surface that they touch. Rub a thin coat of paraffin wax on the
gaskets following cleaning.
The doors will not close completely
Are food packages blocking the door open? Rearrange
containers so that they fit more tightly.
The dispenser
water is not cool enough
Has the refrigerator been newly installed? Allow 24 hours
for the refrigerator to cool completely.
Has a large amount of water been recently dispensed?
Allow 24 hours for the water to cool completely.
Has water not been recently dispensed?
The first glass of
water may not be cool. Discard the first glass of water.
The divider between
the two compartments
is warm
The warmth is probably due to normal operation of the automatic
exterior moisture control.
Temperature
is too warm
Are the air vents blocked in either compartment?
This
prevents cold air movement between the compartments.
Move objects away from the air vents. See the "Ensuring
Proper Air Circulation" section for air vent locations.
Are the door(s) opened often? The refrigerator will warm
when this occurs. Keep the refrigerator cool by getting all
items out at one time, keeping food organized, and closing
the door as soon as possible.
Has a large amount of food just been added to the
refrigerator or freezer? Adding a large amount of food
warms the refrigerator. It can take several hours for the
refrigerator to return to the normal temperature.
Are the controls set correctly for the surrounding
conditions? See the "Using the Control(s)" section.
Is the ice bin out of position? Push the ice bin in all the way.
Are the crisper cover, pans, shelves, bins, or baskets out
of position?
Put these items into their correct positions. See
the "Refrigerator
Features" section for more information.
Are the gaskets sticking?
Clean gaskets and the surface
that they touch. Rub a thin coat of paraffin wax on the
gaskets following cleaning.
Does the refrigerator wobble or seem unstable? Level the
refrigerator. See the "Door Closing and Alignment"
section.
Were the doors removed during product installation
and
not properly replaced? Remove and replace the doors
according to the "Refrigerator
Doors" section, or call a
qualified service technician.
