Does not have a dispenser

Is the ice maker turned on?

Check to make sure the ice maker is turned "on".  For instructions on turning the ice maker "on" and "off" please see reference the Use and Care Guide.

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.
