The reason your fill tube to the ice maker is freezing up time and time again is
simply the valve, or valves (water valves) that dispense water to the door and ice maker. It most likely always is the ice maker side because it is always
harvesting ice and it gets used the most. The only way to stop this is to
replace the water valves almost always located in the rear of the Refrigerator
with the supply line coming off the wall the valves with one or two electric
plugs that energize the solenoid type valve when unit calls for water. Tired of
getting out the hair dryer and melting the ice that plugs up the fill tube? This
is the only solution. Some of the time is because lime, or other deposits in the
water will not allow the plunger to rest in the complete closed position. When
the valve is energized for the amount of time needed it lifts the plunger
allowing water to flow through. Then when it goes back down to the closed
position it has a small gap that causes water to seep through. There you have
it! It's fixed! Unplug unit before replacing valves.If you have a double valve
system make sure your lines go back to the original spot. Some of them have a
1/4" line with plastic compression fitting for the ice maker and a 3/8" for the
water at the door. Some have both 1/4" compression fittings coming out like
"Amana" so once again, make sure to get all lines back to the same position.
you will need to replace the water inlet valve, this runs your water and ice,, before you replace it take your water line off and hold it in a pot, then have someone turn the water back on , this will let you know for sure you are getting water to the valve,, if no water comes out then you have a water line prob,, have that fixed then hook it back up and turn it on, then you will need to run the water for about 2 -3 minutes to purge the air out of the line,,, if you rplace the valve you will need to purge also
First need to determine water supply. Water filter and or inlet screen fouled? I know this is assuming the water supply is open..
Check the ice level bar to be sure it is in the correct position for making ice. If it is incorrect poition, the ice maker "thinks" the ice bin is full. I would start there with the water supply though. Most likely...
I have a GE 2005 Side by Side Refrigerator. Model GSS25JERF, Serial # FH242429. I get all kinds of Ice but no water. I replaced the water valve (p/n WR57X10050) and the Dispenser Display, 4 button ( p/n WR55x10443) Still no water dispensing from the water valve. What next ?????
I would remove both solenoids (one at a time-not to mix them up) pay attention and mark all parts- try cleaning or replacing them. Most are fairly common supply items. Paying attention to wiring and proper installation is important during re assemble. JOHN-LA
Sounds like the water solinoid valves are wired wrong.One activates The water dispenser.The other the ice maker.That, why every so often the water shoots out on the floor.The ice maker is telling the valve to open.
