Ice maker spraying water and freezes on foods

Ice maker stopped working and spraying water all over. A new ice maker was installed and made 1 drop of cubes and spayed water all over again. Two new tubes were installed and the problem still exists.
$243.00 later, we still have no ice maker and the repairman has no idea what the problem is.

    The ice cubes are smaller than they used to be, and it isn't making as much or as quickly as it used to, but it isn't spraying any more (so far).I just didn't know how far to unscrew that screw.

    It is almost to the end. Thank you for your help, and if you have any more advise on it, please let me know.

    I shut the ice maker off this a.m. as I noticed water leaking and it was already frozen. I saw your new helpful idea, and went in to take the ice tray out to open the front and screw that screw in a little and there has been water leaking and freezing. Starting to build up. I turned the ice maker back on and will watch it the rest of the day until I go to bed. If it continues, I will have to shut it off and defrost in the a.m. on Monday.

    What do you think the problem is now? Any ideas?

  • laughingwjay Nov 17, 2008

    Thanks for trying to help. I had to shut the freezer completely down last night. Where the water runs down the tube, it fills with water and freezes. Dripping water all over every thing and then freezing up the whole opening. Then it started making so much noise, we had to shut it off and let it defrost.

    I will try and find some one to come look at it again.

    I appreciate your help.

Ice maker stopped working water coming out of front of door. what to do?


There are two sides to a water control valve Cindy. One side for the dispenser and one side for the ice maker. Feel inside the ice maker slots for any remaining ice cubes. If the ice maker has no ice fill with tap water and if after the water freezes and drops the ice into the ice container and then does not refill with water the problem points to the dual water control valve. If the ice just sits in the ice maker and does nothing then this points to a defective ice maker. What is the model number of the refrigerator?

My ice machine stopped working on my fridge it's only 1 and 4 months old.any suggestions


If a year old there is no warranty for the ice maker or the dual water control valve. Feel around the ice slots to see if there is still sitting there? What is the model number of your fridge? If the ice tray slots are empty fill with tap water until near full and if the water freezes and the ice maker drops the ice into the ice container the problem will link to a water control valve problem. If there is ice in the slots and ice maker is on and does nothing then the problem is the ice maker and it will need to be replaced.

PFSF5RKZC Icemaker stopped making ice.


Most of the time is the ice maker itself that is defective. inside ice maker is an small circuit board that freezes up, if you take ice maker out and leave it overnight out to melt any ice inside the board it may work after that.

My icemaker stopped working but the water on the door still works what can the problem be model number 106.51552104


02fd7a9b-9a65-43a6-ae76-6bf68d211304.jpgThanks for the model number. If the ice slots inside the ice maker are empty try pouring tap water in and allow the water to freeze. If after the water freezes the ice drops into the ice bucket and the ice maker does not refill this would indicate that the side of the=> W10408179 Water Inlet Valve is defective on the side that controls ice maker water supply. If the ice maker just sits there and does nothing this would point to a defective ice maker. Depending what is wrong with the ice maker will determine what parts are replaced. Here is a list of those parts here=> Kenmore Refrigerator Model 106.51552104 Ice Maker Parts and if need you may be able to find a complete ice maker replacement by asking. Most people don't like replacing ice maker parts. I am here should you have questions or comments, Sea Breeze

Ge refrigeration model 20-25 icemaker not making ice



Fill ice maker with tap water and allow the water to freeze. If when the ice maker cycles and drops ice into ice bin it chooses not to refill with water at end of the cycle. That would point to the dual water control valve. If ice maker does nothing when filled with tap water that will indicate a defective ice maker. The model number you listed does not appear to be correct. Look around the fresh food section door frame and see what you have. This could be the ice maker or the dual water control valve causing this problem. Thanks Sea Breeze

I have an amana refrigerator with and ice maker. The ice maker will not fill with water. I have installed a new ice maker and it still will not fill with water. I have 120 volts going to the ice maker...


Is there water or ice in the ice mold? If not put water in it and see if it dumps the ice after it’s frozen. If there is ice, lift the cut off arm and let it drop to see if it will start.
If it does dump the ice but don’t refill with water.
Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

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.

A strainer before the inlet valve can also get stopped up restricting flow.
