MY FRIGE WON'T GIVE WATER & OR ICE???? EZ FIX...

There is just 1 little thing standing in between you and your water/ice. It's about the size of a deck of cards and leaves you
thirsty. It's the Water Inlet Valve. This little jewel controls the water
getting into the Refrigerator. When you push the lever it opens to
dispense water. When it goes out you get nothing or maybe a trickle. It also has a valve that controls water to your ice maker so maybe you have water but no ice. Either way you are not happy.
Good News!!! It is an EZ FIX... You can replace this part easily and
probably in less time than you think. Step 1 Find the Make and Model of your Frige and get the Right Part. Step 2 Locate the Water Inlet Valve on your Refigerator. Follow the water supply line to the back of the frige. It is attached to the Inlet Valve. Step 3 Match the new part to the old part. They should look the same and have the same connections. Step 4 Unplug and Shut Off Water to the Refrigerator. Step 5 Mark the wires location on the old part or transfer them 1 at a time to the new part. Step 6 Remove and replace the water lines and mounting screws. Step 7 Turn on water and check for leaks. Step 8 Plug in your Frige and Enjoy. EZ FIX...

fim200a does not make the cubes large enough


If you just started having this problem now and it was making the right size ice before then i would first look at cleaning the ice machine including the condenser coil. second thing make sure that the water inlet valve is not seeping water by when it is in freeze mode just a little warmer water will cause it to not make good ice and a longer freeze time. last thing would be to adjust the I.S.Adjust: Ice size adjustment on the control board. Turn screw clockwise, and the size of individual ice cubes will be larger in the next cycle; the cycle time will be longer. Turn the screw counter-clockwise, and the ice will be smaller in the next cycle. only do this if every thing ealse checks out good.

I have a GE model TPX 24BPBA WW and have a water leak on my floor. I disconnected the icemaker water feed and leak stopped. What's wrong


do you live in an area where there are rodents such as mice ? if yes there is a possibility that they have eaten the plastic water line that feeds from the ice maker water valve to the ice maker itself . when they get thirsty you would be surprised what they will actually chew through to get water. regardless the cause, you probably have a broken water line between the ice maker water valve and ice maker unit .

ice cube shape


hoshizakis make ice cubes depending on the amount of water in the sump. if you are starving for water the sump only partially fills in the fill time allowed . then it makes ice until the water is used up and the float switch drops and the cubes are little slices. you can adjust the size of cubes you want by raising or lowering the float assembley in the sump. if its to low the water rises and the float rises and tells the machine you happy with little slices. if you raise it up to max height you can max fill before float satisfies and max ice cubes. But if you are starving for water the time to fill will run out before the sump fills and cubes will be small no matter where you set the floats assembly. water starving can be due to crud in the water line, to small a water line, most hoshizes take a half inch line ,or a clogged water filter. if you suspect a filter take it out . if fill is drastically improved you need a new filter. be aware that starving for water on a hoshizaki will eventually lead to broken evap plates. big time expensive.good luck. i put in a new machine ruined by starving water and the new one made little chips of ice real quick. i finally pulled the filter out and voila! big cubes and great production.

Check the bridge size adjustment at the top of the metal grid that the ice forms on. This determines the size of the cubes. Whenever you make a repair on the water system, especially on an older unit. make sure the unit is clean. A little bit of calcium deposits (or that other nasty looking stuff) getting into the passage ways will make it run erratically, and can drive you nuts.
