Default 3rd Issue-Water in the door of fridge keeps quiting on me.

At my bay house I bought a used side by side fridge/freezer combo. I ran a water line and the water was working fine after I figured out it was airlocked. I hadnt been down in a few weeks and when I got down there it had quit but I was hearing the solenoid.

I thought it had froze over so I turned the temp down in the freezer and waited until I got back down a couple weeks later. Got down and it worked but at a slow, very slow trickle until it finally stopped all together.

Anybody know anything about this stuff? Its really annoying...seems to be what I get for buying a CL fridge

Any help is appreciated.

This was me.... http://www.thehulltruth.com/dockside...er-doesnt.html

First - check and make sure that there is no crimp or kink in your service line...that will reduce the flow to a trickle.

If the line is good, then try turning on the override for the light in the door...and leave it on overnight...the door light bulb's generate just enough heat to melt the ice buildup on the line in the door.

Finally - if it's a GE, there is a kit that includes a line warmer that connects behind the dispenser. It seems to work - at least it has, for me, so far....
