Open Question

Ice maker not working; no water flow

Frigidaire Side By Side Refrigerator Model # GLRT218WDB9. made after 4/2001

Recently I replaced the water filter (5yr. 10,000 gallon bulky) with an Aqua Pure AP717 (1-yr. 1,500 gal.). Sometime afterward, I was told the ice maker wasn't functioning; that water wasn't flowing to it. Fortunately the freezer works. So I went online to determine whether the filter was the improper brand installed.
To check, I filled in the section for the model number and got this: Puresource Water Filter WF1CB as the proper item for this appliance.
I was wondering whether this is the actual problem. Thank You.

SOURCE: slow water flow

dadcanfix. There are two possibilities here. One could be the water valve itself, clogged or not seating or opening properly. The second would be the water tank on the refrigerator side, partially frozen. I believe they have a kit now with coiled tubing that replaces that tank because of the trouble they had with it. Remove the refer drawers and take a hair dryer and go over the tank lightly. See if that improves the water flow. Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: leaking pure source 2 ice and water filter

Hi-

Three things

  • Water supply valve may not be completely open.
    Open valve completely.
  • Water supply valve may be blocked by foreign material or may not be large enough.
    Supply valve must have a 1/4" opening for water to fully supply ice maker. Many self-piercing valves do not have this big of an opening. Replace water supply valve with one that has a 1/4" opening.
  • Water filter may need changing.
    If equipped with a water filter, replace filter canister or cartridge.
Hope this help

Thanks for using Fixya!

Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. It's on the back where the water supply comes in. 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 blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips
