Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

Hello, I have a under the fridge water filter for my ice maker. Two problems: 1- I cannot remember how to release the pressure in the filter to be able to open the cylinder and put in a fresh filter. 2- the current filter which is actually more than a year old still continues to put large sums of charcoal in my ice. It has done this from the day it was first put in and never has stopped.

Water dispenser running slowly


Hello Cynthia;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You have a water pressure problem. You need at least 60 PSI water pressure to open the solenoid valves. I suspect you are getting small ice cubes.

If you have well water you are not going to get the pressure for fully dispenser flow.

I have experienced bad water filters. One time our techs received a large shipment of bad water filters. Remove the water filter and test the water dispenser.

With low water pressure you may not want to use a water filter

Electrolux EW28BS71IS French Door Fridge no water and no ice


First check that you have good water pressure to the water valve. If you do, then the problem is in your refrigerator. And the most likely fault is the solenoid controled water valve which is a one in two out valve. Follow the water line from you house input and the first place it connects is that valve.

My whirlpool side by side fridge is not making ice...no water reaching ice maker. I replaced the water inlet valve assembly, still no water in ice maker


Hello,

their are 4 possibilities that will cause that

1) if equipped the filter is clogged

2) the tube in the freezer that the water enters into the i/m is frozen, to check that disconnect the line from the water valve (the smaller diameter one if also has in door water dispenser) and blow in it their should be not obstructon and you should be able to blow through it easily

3) the water pressure into the water valve is restricted, their should be a steady good stream of pressure, if it only drips or the pressure is weak that is the problem

4) the i/m is turned off,the metal bar that raises and lowers to stop the i/m when ice bucket is full should be in the down position

Hope this helps, Gene

Refrigerator does not produce ice or water. Kenmore Elite Refrigerator Model Number: 795-775-69600


If you have both ice and water stopping you have a water supply issue.

Water enters under city pressure through an eighth inch supply line.

Start simple and work from there.

If the fridge was moved the line can get kinked. Slide the fridge out and check you have water to it. You can loosen the supply line connection just a little and you should see water leaking. If not it is a plumbing issue in the house. Most likely a the supply line is kinked or possibly someone closed the shutoff valve to the fridge.

OK so we have water to the fridge.

Water comes in and connects to a water filter and then to the door.

If the filter is badly clogged it can cause low pressure to the door and that would cause the problem. Check the filter.

If no go still then check where the water is stopping.

Remove the from cover from under the unit. That is the plastic grate at the bottom of the fridge. It will just pull off but be gentle and take your time so as not to break anything.

Water supply will run through a clear plastic hose. It runs to the filter then to the bottom of the freezer door and up through the door.

You can sometimes see where the water has stopped and clear or replace parts as needed.

There is a connection just before entering the door from the filter. You can loosen that to see if you have water to that point.

If you have water past the filter the problem is in the ice maker and water supply inside the freezer door. Water can leak here, expand, and crack plastic parts easily.

If there is water to the door then you need to dig into that. This gets a little more complex to describe but in short take the ice maker out and check for water supply or broken parts. The problem is probably before the ice maker as your water in the door is not working. This indicates it is not just the ice maker.

Hope this helps.

The water dispensor and ice maker have no water pressure. There is plenty of pressure up to the filter but very little past the filter. The filter is new.

The ice maker in my whirlpool gold refrigerator Model No, GR2FHTXTBOO, is not working.


Hello jitkagardner,
Welcome


You said, The ice maker in my whirlpool gold refrigerator Model No, GR2FHTXTBOO, is not working.

How old is the fridge?
When have you last changed the water filter.
Should be down below at the front grille!
Try these tasks!

If the ice maker is not producing ice or not enough ice
Refrigerator connected to a water supply and the supply
shutoff valve turned on? Connect refrigerator to water
supply and turn water shutoff valve fully open.
• Kink in the water source line? A kink in the line can reduce
water flow. Straighten the water source line.
• Ice maker turned on? Make sure wire shutoff arm or switch
(depending on model) is in the ON position.
• New installation? Wait 24 hours after ice maker installation
for ice production to begin. Wait 72 hours for full ice
production.
• Freezer door closed completely? Firmly close the freezer
compartment door. If the freezer compartment door will not
close all the way, see "The doors will not close completely."
• Large amount of ice recently removed? Allow 24 hours for
ice maker to produce more ice.
• Ice cube jammed in the ice maker ejector arm?
Remove ice from the ejector arm with a plastic utensil.
• Water filter installed on the refrigerator? Remove filter and
operate ice maker. If ice volume improves, then the filter may
be clogged or incorrectly installed. Replace filter or reinstall it
correctly.
• Reverse osmosis water filtration system connected to
your cold water supply? This can decrease water pressure.

Let me know how it goes!

My whirlpool aide by side fridge icemaker is making buzzing or humming noise


Hello
Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,


You said, your ice maker is making a buzzing or humming noise ice maker isn't making much ice. . fridge is about 2 1/2 years old.

This sounds like a clogged water line or a electrical short !
I would get service rather than take a chance on electrical fire.
Or burn up the circuit in the ice maker.


Thank you for giving us the opportunity to advise you.

Fridge freezer door ice maker


the ice maker controls the seloniod the icemaker wire arm must be all the way down .just because the seloniod test good doesnt mean the valve seat isnt stuck the water valves open by your house water pressure if your filter is dirty this can also lower the pressure if the icemaker module is bad this also can cause it if you pull the front of the ice-maker off you will se a bunch of holes if you get a piece of 10 Gage house strip about 1/4 inch off either side and insert it into the holes marked t and h that will test cycle the ice maker they will be close together don't get shocked if the ice maker cycles and doesnt fill and the ice maker fill tube isn't frozen replace the water valve if the ice-maker doesn't cycle replace the brown motor module

Fridge leak by water filter Fridgidaire


Hello, sounds like the o-ring for the housing that the filter goes into was damaged. You can get a replacement o-ring from your locale appliance parts wholesaler/dealer - OR if you have a really good locale "Hardware" store - remove the o-ring from the male part of the housing that stays in your fridge (pinch it between you fingers around the diameter and you should be able to get it out). They should be able to match it for you - If I recall it is a standard size. If you cannot find one right away you may be able to get it to stop leaking temporarily by getting some Sillicone O-Ring GREASE and applying it to the o-ring. This may stop the leak but I would still replace the oring when you can. Good Luck Dr. Know

Admiral Refrigerator makes hollow ice


Hollow ice cubes are due to low water pressure to the fridge. Water thru the door should have good pressure behind it. This is a good indicator of water pressure. Should be able to fill a glass quickly. Causes for low pressure are self-piercing saddle valves on the water line (switch to drill type (1/4") valve) or reverse osmosis system or filtering system on water line to the fridge. R.O. systems should not be used. Increase water pressure and that will fix the hollow cubes. The loud noise may be the sound of the water valve on the fridge when it is acivated. This sound is normal and some are louder than others.
