  • External water dispenser function with the door open
  • Can the water dispenser be used with the door open?


Pressing Water on the external dispenser while the door is open will cause water to dispense from the bulk ice area.

  • Water will not come out of the dispenser in the door.
  • A vessel must be held under the bulk ice chute to catch the water.
  • This allows larger cups or pitchers to be filled.
  • Use caution when filling larger vessels, as dispensing too much water in a short period of time may cause the dispenser to lock.
