Ice maker is dripping into ice bin after water...

I followed your suggestion and went to a local dealer to get a valve. I told him about the problem and he thinks that my ice tray (where the ice forms) is broken or cracked. He asked if I get pieces of plastic or what appears to be like colored paper in the ice, and I told him it does that a lot. He said that the ice tray needs replacing, and that it is about the same price as a entire new unit ($100.00), and he charges $40.00 for the install. He also said that with a new unit I won't have to replace the other parts in a year or two when they get worn out, which ends up costing more to do it piece by piee. What do you think about what he is saying? I could try to find an entire unit, but from what I am finding the prices out there are more for just a new unit (that I will have to install) than what he wants for an entire new unit and the install?

I think that $140 installed is a good deal.

Why is my Uline ice maker filling with water not ice ?


At first I wanted to say it has to fill with water to make ice but I know you mean the ice bin is filling with water. You either have an issue with the water control valve leaking or your timer isn't working properly. Listen for the water to flow and when it seems to shut off look at the tray fill spout and see if it actually stopped dripping. If it continues to drip (not flow normally) then the valve is leaking. If it isn't dripping but the water in the ice tray over flowed, then the issue is either with the timer or the adjustment is incorrect.

Ice maker is leaking water at the rear of the ice maker, somewhere around the water inlet. Water is dripping slowly and building up an ice ***** BEHIND (outside) the ice cube storage bin AND inside the...


Hello,The reason all the ice freezes together and you see icecicles forming from the icemaker,is going to caused by the water inlet valve on the back of the refrig.is not fully closing but instead it's seeping water through it and dripping into the ice storage bucket. To stop that from happening the water inlet valve would need to be replaced.
On refrigerators that have a built in water filter,alot of times their will be 2 water valves and the one that is bad causing water to seep through it will be the one called the SECONDARY valve.

Water continues to leak from the ice maker into

It's on the back where the water supply is connected. You can swap the wires on the dual water inlet valve and disconnect the water line at the valve which goes to the ice maker. When you try the water dispenser the water will come out there. When you stop the water dispenser, if the water at the valve doesn't stop, the valve isn't closing so you'll need to replace it.

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 machine not working, I have water in the door but no ice. looks like there might be a ice buildup. I had a leak in the water line and this problem started after I fixed the water line


Is the ice buildup in the ice bin storage or ice maker. The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

Ice maker makes ice cubes, but the doesn't dispense ice cubes.


If you could observe exactly where the water is dripping from it would help but...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.
The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.

Ice maker drip into ice bucket and manual cycle leaks more water


Need to take the ice maker out to measure the amount of water input into the ice tray. In this case the tray was already full (from the leaking valve). The spillage I saw was just the tray overflowing. Time for a new valve.

Ice maker is dripping into ice bin after water refills?


I had this problem on my refrigerator. I talked to a service tech at the local appliance dealer and here's what he said. There is a valve at the back of the refrigerator (mine is a side by side, but the basics are the same When the Ice maker goes thru it cycle, a part of that cycle is to turn on the water to fill the ice tray, then the next portion of that cycle is to turn off the water. What is happening is that the valve is getting the signal to close but due to mineral build up on the valve surface it is not able to completely shut off.
The solution is to replace the valve. This is not difficult. Turn off the water to the refrig. It's usually runs under the cabinets to the sink and you can see a plastic hose under there with a small handle you can turn to shut it off. Pull the refrig out so you can get to the back and you will see the valve. It will be connected to the same hose that is under the sink Remove and replace the valve. make sure all the little hose fittings are tight. Turn on the water under the sink and check for leaks.

Hope this helps PS you can get a new valve at most any appliance dealer.

Good luck Loringh
