    If the filter/flow control valve are on a timer, do I need to replace the filter? I am a home owner, not a contractor. Thanks in advance for any help.

Water filter status has red light. Did not replace and now has green light and Ice maker stopped making ice.


Check the water inlet valve for any restrictions. You will need to shut off the valve from the household water supply before you disconnect the inlet tubing.

Check the screen that filter debris, If the screen is plugged, water flow will be restricted and the result will be small or layered ice cubes. Remove and clean the screen or replace the valve.

Inspect the ice maker mold to see if there are ice cubes present. If there are no cubes or very small cubes, then you should look for issues with the water fill system. Inspect the fill tube and the fill cup area at the back of the ice maker to make sure that they are not frozen. If there is an ice buildup in that area, confirm no foreign objects have disrupted the flow of water into the fill cup. If you find nothing the problem is definitely from the water inlet valve

If there is an ice buildup in that area, confirm no foreign objects have disrupted the flow of water into the fill cup. If nothing obvious has caused the ice buildup then suspect the inlet valve, tubing or low water pressure. Inspect the outlet tubing from the fill valve to the ice maker fill tube for any signs of restrictions and replace if necessary.

My automatic ice maker has produced hollow cubes, foul tasting cubes and now they just made cubes with a green color in the middle. What's up?


Hollow cubes usually caused by lack of enough water during fill. My guess is green is mold buildup. Check house water supply to refrigerator. Sometimes the little shut off valves for the refrigerator block up and need cleaned or replaced. Once you get proper size cubes, if taste/ color problem persists they sell small in line filters you can add in the water line to the refrigerator.(about $25.)

Why isn't my KitchenAid Refrigerator ice maker not filling with water?


Hi,

I would look into a replacement ice maker part number W10469286. This should correct the production issue you have. Your ice maker has to send power to the water valve open and allow water to the mold. If it doesn't cycle or call for water its a ice maker issue. Good Luck

Sounds like the fill tube at the ice maker is either out of alignment or has a crack in it.

The water supply line from the water inlet valve enters the rear of the freezer and releases the water into a large diameter fill tube. The fill tubes hangs above the fill cup which funnels the water into the ice mold. If the fill tube and fill cup are improperly aligned, water may spill out instead of going into the mold.

I;m not getting any water to my ice maker for it to make ice?



Hi,


It isn't the water supply hose that would be frozen since that is outside of the refrigeration area.You need to verify (if you haven't done so already) that you actually have water supply to the back of the fridge first. If so then take and clean the mesh filter on the fill valve.Use a needle, pin, or a sharp pointed pick to remove it.
Clean the filter (by using toothbrush or a small fine wire brush, and brush it under a slow running water tap). You can see how well you've cleaned it by holding it up to a light and you will see whether there are areas which may require more attention.
Once you are satisfied that it is clean, place it back in and connect your water and test.


Also an icemaker has something called a fill cup, which holds the water from the supply hose as it is being drained into the ice mold. If this ice maker part is not aligned properly, water doesn't make it from the supply valve to the ice mold, and you don't get any ice. Check to make sure your fill cup is properly aligned. You can check this ice maker part by removing the ice bin and having a look, adjusting if necessary. If you have ice forming on the water spout, you could have a leaky water inlet valve, another ice maker part which will need to be repaired.

Ice maker not filling up with water, but it dispenses water.


Check for a blocked frozen fill tube at the ice maker. Very common. Make sure you have good water pressure at the water dispensor. If it takes a long time to fill a glass you need to either change your water filter if your fridge has one or make sure your water supply valve located at the other end of the water line is not plugged. If all this checks ok, you may need a new solinoid valve on the refrigerator.

The ice maker is time filled, it only has a certain time in which to fill. There is no way to adjust the water level. Check the pressure limiting valve which is in the water line before the filter. Have you replaced the filter? Remove the filter and pressure limiting valve and see if the ice maker receives more water. If it does, then replace the filter and check again. If it is still good, the pressure limiting valve is faulty.
