Icemaker won't fill with water

We've just moved. Pro movers handled packing, loading, moving, and unloading. Refrigerator, in-door water, and icemaker worked perfectly before move. After the move, I hooked up the icemaker to the water supply built in behind the refrigerator. Checked the water flow, there's plenty through the tubing to the refrigerator. Water-in-the-door feature works, but flows less than it did at other location, fills glass probably half as quickly as previously.

Icemake won't fill at all. Ref-side temp is 37-39 degF. Freezer-side temp is 0-5 degF. Built-in water filter indicator shows the filter is good, but will gladly replace if necessary. Checked the icemaker connection on top of the refrigerator, and the line is dry. No water visible in line.

No kinks anywhere in copper tubing from wall to ref, none visible in plastic lines under ref to fill valve and going toward door.

Is there an actuator or switch that needs to be activated? What have I missed?

Thanks very much,

Lynn B.

    Okay, it's fixed. I found a similar problem and solution here, and my problem was exactly the same. Thawed the fill line (very gently) with a heat gun, cycled the icemaker via the reset button, and the ice blockage came out. I cycled it several more times to clear the line completely, then buttoned it all back up. I should have ice by morning.

    Thanks very much for keeping questions and answers archived!

    Thanks again,

    The water is on - there seems to be water getting to the filter inside - but not to the door or icemaker...

What are some cheap options for long distance moves?


U-Haul offers a service where you can pack everything up and helpers load the truck and when you get to your new home another set of helpers will meet you there to unload. It depends on how you set your budget as well. You may want to check out companies like pods where you load the storage trailer and a truck picks it up and drives it to your destination. ABF is a freight hauling company which offers a 26 ft. trailer that you load with a liftgate and that too will be brought to your new home. Shop around theres a lot of ways to save and have it done hassle free.

Ice maker not working


my icemaker has a wire overfill sensor which shuts off the icemaker if there is too much ice in the basket. If this wire gets pushed up it will stop making ice until level lowers OR manually lowered.

GE side by side GSL25JFXLLB won't stop making ice. I had this refrigerator for 23 months. The builder installed it in my home. I had a -one-year warranty, where the door had to be replaced due to...


NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.
Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
The ref. temp should be about 33-35
The Freezer temp should be 0 to 10 Any thing below these temps is overkill and a waste of elect
The higher the number you turn it up to is the coldest
The icemaker is 110v
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects thenyou need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking or no water at icemaker or door either one, then the valve at the rear bottom of ref needs replacing
I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also if it is getting drinking water to the door but not to the icemaker (or vice versa) Then you need to replace
the water valve at the bottom rear of the fridge. It is a double valve and one side is not working
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath
WATER SPLASHING IN FREEZER AT ICEMAKER
THE FILL TUBE IN BACK OF REFRIGERATOR CAN SLIP
AGAINST THE FILL RESERVOIR CAUSING A PARTIAL BLOCKAGE
OR BECOME CLOGGED WITH ICE.
REMOVE THE ICEMAKER AND INSPECT THE FILL TUBE.
RUN WATER IN TUBE TO ELININATE BLOCKAGE AND CHECK
TEMP IN FREEZER. IF TEMP IS BELOW 0 DEGREES, THATS
OVERKILL AND USUALLY A WASTE OF ELECTRICITY TO KEEP IT THAT COLD, NOT TO MENTION THE FILL TUBE FREEZING UP

I recently moved. After re-connecting my LG Fridge I noticed that you can hear the water run for several seconds before it starts to fill the glass with water. What could be the cause of this?


Usually a small leak in the water line from water valve to the water filter.
I have seen when moving a ref the movers catch the plastic water line on the back of the box on the home door to the outside and damage it.

Pull out the Ref. and inspect the tubing.

Be sure to protect your floor.

Whirlpool refrigerator stopped making ice.


If there are ice cubes in the icemaker sitting there waiting to be dumped then the problem is in the icemaker. If the icemaker is dry then you have a water supply problem, even if you have a water in the door working.
1.Check the fill line inside the freezer at the icemaker, if it is clogged with ice then remove this ice and replace the water valve.

2. Check the water supply. Turn the water supply off, disconnect the water line from the Ref, turn the water back on an fill a small glass. If the water supply is good the solenoid on the water valve should be checked. This is done with an OHM meter.

Kenmore fridge icemaker doesn't work after move


Try using an hairdryer or defrosting the unit completely , this often get rid of blockage caused by frozen lines fixing the problem.

The water lines can also be unblocked from dirt using a thin flexible shaft. This after defrosting.

If all that does not fix the problem, then you may need to replace the water valve, the icemaker solenoid, or the whole icemaker assembly.
