Sound like it is low on freon ,,,, if so it runs all the time trying to get cold enough to shut down and it wont make ice ,,,, 1st check to make sure the fan inside is blowing, make sure the temp in freezer part is atleast +5 or below if it hasn't cooled right front the start then thats why they got rid of it ,,,,, leaking freon and it cost to much to repair that problem / larry

Ice maker won't stop filling. Makes a little ice, but water is almost constant into the maker


The water control valve is shot. It's not making ice because there is a constant flow of water into the ice tray. Shut the water off at the feed point for the fridge for now. If the drain gets plugged you're going to have a small catastrophe on your hands.

Here's a procedure to test it to be sure:

Westinghouse ice maker quit working


Is it your ice maker, or possible the blades that crush the ice or dispense the cubes? What can happen in the latter case is that during the storm the ice melted and pooled in the cutter mechanism. Then, when power was restored, the blades were frozen solid. To fix, investigate taking out the cutter mechanism and letting it thaw and drain. Then reinstall and use frequently for the first few days to prevent refereezimg.

Fridge stops running after about a day.


That is a faulty defrost system.

Test the defrost thermostat, heating coil and fan, and replace the faulty part.
the defrost system is located behind freezer firewall.

ICE MAKER MOTOR RUNS CONSTANTLY AND WONT' TURN OFF ICE IS FULL


It's not too difficult to remove the ice maker. A few screws and the unit will unplug from the fridge. Then you can see why the bar is not turning it off. If it's really broken, check pcappliance.com for parts or a replacement unit. Meanwhile the fridge can keep on working, and you can use trays to make ice.

Water running from bottom front of refridgertor


Can you tell if there is any water in the ice cube "basket"? If it is full, then your ice maker is not sensing the water level "full" and keeps running. The fridge is normally able to handle a little overflow, about one pint or so, but cannot handle a constant run of water. If it is empty, the supply line may be disconnected somehwhere along its route, most likely near the bottom and at the rear of the fridge. You can pull the fridge out and look at it by removing the back cover. If the line is disconnected, reconnect and have a happy new year. If it is connected, here are two options as I see it.

One - check to make sure your ice maker is properly plugged in and installed at its location in the freezer. If you or someone you love has recently cleaned the fridge or shoved a fifty pound turkey in there, the ice maker may have come dislodged.

Two - replace the icemaker. These units come as a single purchase as you cannot just buy the senser. Cost of most of these I have seen are about $125 for the part (easy to install), which can be a deal breaker. Ice cube trays are $1.99 for two at the local hardware and they don't usually overflow.

According to the manual for your refrigerator:
Blinking green light indicates an ice cube is stuck in the icemaker. To fix - Turn off the ice maker with the on/off switch. Then remove all of the ice from the icemaker by hand and turn it back on.

I hope this helps.
