What does the tubing from the ice maker water valve go into when you feed into the funnel of the ice maker?


There is probably Ice forming in the end of the water line. I fought this battle for a long time. Then I found the answer. The Freezer temperature is probably too cold. I have read that the temperature must be set to between 0 and 4 degrees. WRONG. It should be colder than 10 degrees and I have found best results with the freezer set to 6 or 8 degrees on the control panel. To test this. Take a blow dryer and heat up the area where the water comes into the icemaker. Use caution it is possible to melt some of the plastic in that area. Then, set the freezer temp to 6 or 8 degrees. It will probably work fine.

Slow ice production


that could be one solution. I would look at how long the freeze cycle is lasting. The machine could be cycling off and on via bin stat. Average cycles from start of freeze cycle to start of freeze cycle is usually around 25 minutes or so. If it is taking longer than that, you may have to dig deeper. let me know. Don't overlook a leaking water valve.

Hoshizaki km-900mah ice maker won't start the freeze process


cycle is, fill cycle for 1 minute first. If there is not water entering the unit when first turned on, look for that issue. Water turned off, water valve not working or some restriction, clogged water filters, etc. That is got to happen first. Don't over look the bin stat being bad. Nothing happens if teh bin stat is bad. It sends voltage to the control board that runs the unit.

The freezer is iceing up and periodically the fan with kick on and off in in short cycles where I have to turn on swithch to off and back to reset. What part do I need to replace. Whirlpool model...


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.
First I would check cold control. Thats where you turn it off, if your temp is not warm. it can
be defective and not shutting off. If your temp is warm proceed with the following.
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 AND VICE-VERSA. SEE?
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
But is probably a common defrost problem The ice build up
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
Make sure back cover is on the fridge. Some take them off and throw them away.
make one out of cardboard if its gone, using the holes of the old one.

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

Ice tray frozen over. will not drop ice. Keeps dumping water on top of ice tray during cycling.


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
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
First 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.

No power light, doesn't turn on power connected and tested Fm800mre


Check your "Bin Stat". Power goes to the board from the bin stat. If bad, not power to board and machine does not run.

Turn the unit on and it fills up with water,then goes into defrost cycle then into freeze cycle it starts freezing then just cuts off with no lights on board, not even red power light then will try again...


Most all of Hoshi ice makers have power go thru the bin stat first. It sends power to the board and everything then powers up. Start there and get back to me.I will need model and serial numbers to be sure I have the correct wiring diagram for your unit should we need to go any further. Good Luck.

Back of freezer ices up .refridgerator warm... Fan is OK..... Top mount freezer


There are 3 things to look for on this. The defrost timer which tells the ref. to go into defrost, the defrost t-stat which sends power from the timer to the heater and then the heater. Most likely out of the 3 it is usually the t-stat located on the evap coils behind the back panel of your freezer section. Easy to get to and easy to change. The stat is the one item that has a wire going to the heater. Hope this helps.

Freezer and Ref. are warm


i assume this is a frost free type. the fault may well cure itself.
to hasten the process, remove the back panel inside the freezer and you will probably find the pipework frozen up. melt of the ice carefully with a hairdryer making sure you don't heat any stats that are clipped on the pipework

GE Fridge/Freezer Having to turn temp up just to keep it cold


From your comment. It's not that you have to defrost the parts, that's what they're called. "defrost timer", "defrost t-stat" and "heat element". Defrosting the whole fridge for a few days actually will clear the ice blockage if that's it but it will return in a couple weeks if the "defrost cycle" isn't doing its thing. A fridge typically goes into some form of "defrost cycle" to keep it "frost free". As an example, every 12 hours the compressor turns off and the evap. fan turns off then a heat element turns on to melt the light coating of ice on the "cooling coils". Once about 1/2 hour goes by the heating turns off and the cooling turns back on again. This repeats over and over to keep the ice from building up too much. If that cycle is broken, the ice will build and build till the whole coil is a block of ice. Then the air can't flow around it to provide cold air for the whole unit. It acts basically like putting a large block of ice in the freezer and keeping the doors closed... without a fan to move the cold air only the very lower portion of the freezer is cold, the rest is warm.
