I am not getting any water from the door. Ice maker is working. Checked water vavle and filter. Vavle is working and removed filter...flushed the lines. I belive the water line is frozen in the freezer door. Any way of defrosting it faster then possibly...leaving the freezer door open for a while with the freezer temp turned to the lowest (high temp) setting. Any ideas whould be appreciated...Thanks.

Re: No Water At the Door
I use an old style "pipe cleaner" soaked in very hot water and pushed up the tube at the door. The blockage is usually about 3-4 inches up the tube where it freezes. The hot water on the pipe cleaner takes only a minute or so to soften the plug enough for it to push through. Re-heat the pipe cleaner in the hot water often so it melts quicker. The ice plug is typically about 1 inch long in that small tube so it doesn't take much to get the water flowing again.

A new filter can take several cycles of the ice maker to fill the filter up with water before. The average filter is around 30 oz and the average ice maker fill cycle is 3.2 oz. The new filter did not have any water in it. The water in the door has a resercoir so the air in the filter will still make the water work until you get air. Drain abour 3 tall glasses from the water in door. The ice maker should then work properly. The filter filters water for water in door (inside) and the ice maker so if you have water inside the door you should have ice UNLESS one of the inlet water valve solenoids has failed. Also make sure the Freezer door / light switch functions properly. The door switch is supposed to stop water and ice functions with the door open.
I would like to know if it starts making ice.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
it either is the water vavle burned out or the ice make went out usualy that is a common problem when the line freezes up to test the ice maker there take the front cover off ice maker then there should be two holes in the front a hole that has m and the on next to it put a jumper wire in that hole if it dont rotate the ice maker is bad. or if it is the other kind of ice maker take a flat head screw driver and turn the screw with on the motor gear clock wise keep turning it until it runs on its own you should get the same results like the above if ice maker test good the water vavle is bad check make sure you have no restrictions in the water line take the line off the vavle and let it run in a bucket to see what kind of water pressure you have it should come out fast
Hi: Change or just remove the water filter first. As your water dispensing slowed that is a clue. If the water filter is that clogged it will cause a problem with the ice maker. Plus the water you drink is not filtered anymore. City water is being run through 2 years of crud. If you don't replace it just remove it. I hope this helps, Jeff
HOLLOW ICE FOLLOWED BY FROZEN WATER CHUTE ARE THE FIRST SIGNS THAT THE WATER INLET VAVLE IS OR HAS FAILED, IT CAN ALSO CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE ICEMAKER BY BURNING OUT THEN TIMING GEAR DUE TO INSUFFIENT WATER OR FLOODING IN ICEMAKER WITH TOO MUCH WATER
First i would check the water valve in the back. One side is for water.. the other side is for the ice maker...
If you have a ohms meter check selonid for continuity look for blisters of plastic on sides showing in would be bad...
You can also make a test cord to energise the valve by passing the icemaker to tell if valve is good. ALSO This would put water into you ice maker telling you.. you have a clear path for water to icemaker
You only need to plug in for few seconds .. to keep from over filling icemaker if vavle good and water comes thu
you may have a high water pressure issue or just have a water inlet vavle that is failing not completely closing after the im stops calling for water. try turning the water on/off vavle all the way off then openit just 1/4 of the way open if this solves the issue its high water pressure if it doesn't the water vavle is failing and if it is not dealt with it will damage the icemaker
