Ice maker makes ice, but also drips water

Water drips from front of ice maker into ice bin making huge ice clumps. I think something is cracked or a water line connection is loose.

Cbscarter,
This may sound strange but you will find that the mold coating is peeling off of the aluminum mold. This causes the water to wick (climb) the loose coating and up over the top, leaking out making an ice clump on the ice maker and clumps ice in the container together. It would be easy enough for the average person to replace the ice make. Due to its age that would be smarter to replace than to repair the old one. It is a Whirlpool part #4317943 and comes with some instructions.

If this helped please rate me good, supertechks

6ED2FHGXVA ice maker making too much ice, why?


That is the dual water control valve that is leaking water to the ice maker. The ice maker will only fill for 7.5 seconds and then the water is turned off but if the valve is bad it will continue to leak water drips until it overflows the ice maker and forms an ice wonderland inside your freezer. There is no picture of the valve but here is a link to the valve part=> http://click.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/click?id=q2qDfOBHgas&subid=&offerid=92089.1&type=10&tmpid=2111&RD_PARM1=http&RD_PARM2=%253A%252F%252Fwww.appliancepartspros&RD_PARM3=.com%252Fwhirlpool-valve-inlt-w10158157-ap4371188.html

Yes 66003764 Overload, Relay with Run Capacitor and you may need to also change the=> 67006531 Water Inlet Valve because it is not closing all the way and allowing water to continue to drip into the ice maker when it should be off. Here is a JCD2295KES Parts List and JCD2295KES User Manual I am here should you have questions, Thanks Sea Breeze

Kitchenaid superba the ice maker not filling up and making ice


dear owittione perhaps the tray if its plastic maybe its cracked and the water drains out while filling check to see if there is a clump of ice in the bin and if so replace the ice tray no if is metal maybe the same thing is happening also check for the clump of ice in the bin. Now if you dont hear any water going in the ice tray maybe the magnetic valve in the back of the fridge is bunded out or the hose from the tap to the valves has a leak or the hose from the valve to the ice tray has a leak . Check around for water puddles if formed. Those are the probable causes that can lead to your problem ofcourse if the refrigerator over all is working fine. good luck. Regards Tony.

Model KSRS25FGWH01-water is dripping inside the freezer ice bin.


If it overfills and drips, look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water.

If it continuously drips, replace the water inlet valve on the back where the house water supply comes in.

Ice maker problems


the heater on the ice maker has gone bad the easiest way to fix is to replace ice maker.the heater is on the bottom of the maker and heats tray up to harvest ice if it dont the ice will stick.But try taking maker out and cleaning it real good with a light spongee (Scrubee)
let it dry then spray some a light coat of pam (or similar) into ice bins and try that ahrd water will eat the coating off the bins
