No Water At the Door

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.

Re: No Water At the Door

I used a pot of boiling water and held it under the water dispenser and let the steam go into the hole. It melted in a few minutes!

Not making ice after changing filter.

Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly.

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,

I set the ice maker feature to make cubes with my samsung refrigerator rs2555sw. But the ice maker makes a ice chunk. All the cubes are frozen together with a flat and thick layer of ice on top..

Hi and welcome to Fixya.

Remove the front cover after the ice tray has dumped cubes and remove all of the water from your ice maker tray.

Then depress the test button on the bottom of the icemaker (in front on bottom) located about 1 inch from the lower rh corner.

The icemaker fill cycle should add just enough water to cover barely cover the tray. (see page 32 of the 25 Sept 2005 user's manual)

If it is overfilling the icemaker fill time / water level needs to be reduced on the ice maker module. A normal fill cycle is about 7.5 seconds.

Another thing that will cause larger cubes is high water supply (utility co) pressure.

A temporary fix would be to slowly close the refridgerator water supply line's shut off vavle so that the water flow restricts.

The real solution is to investigate ice maker fill time, and the function of the icemaker water supply solenoid vavle for possible Delayed closing of the internal diaphram.

Ice maker not making any ice!

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

Not making ice

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

No ice making

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

Kitchenaid Superba Model# KSRS25QDWH01 For some reason my ice maker is overfilling with water. I have adjusted the "adjustment screw" and it is still overflowing... Does anyone have any other...

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
