Whirlpool ice maker will not fill with water


1st check to see if fill tube is frozen that goes through back freezer wall to feed water to ice maker. If it is, thaw it and replace water valve. If not frozen, then you must determine if water valve or ice maker is bad. You must determine if Ice maker is sending voltage to valve. If it is, replace valve. If it's not, replace ice maker.

How to fix the ice maker?


Could be a couple of things, one could be that the water valve is not opening and the other would be that the water line has frozen going to the ice maker. You can check the water valve by doing the following: pull your refrigerator out so that you can get behind it and take the cover off at the bottom of the unit and look for your water valve. It should be towards the right side as you are facing the back. You may have two solenoids, one for your dispenser and one for the ice maker. Switch the wiring harness on the two solenoids and if you can switch the tubing from one side to the other and then try your dispenser. If you get water, your valve is okay and you should look at the water line being frozen. If you get no water, I would replace the valve and hopefully that will take care of your problem. Hope this helps!

Where do I find the ice maker inlet water valve or solenoid? The valve on the back of my fridge has only one hose going to both the water dispenser and ice maker and the water dispenser works fine.


Since there is water that flows to the water dispenser, the water valve is working. Now, there's a spout that water flows from to the icemaker tray. Look for it. It's located on the back wall inside the freezer and maybe behind the icemaker tray. Check and see if it's frozen. If so, defrost your freezer by turning the temperature gauge to off position. Wait a while until it's defrosted, then turn it back on.
Next, make sure that the metal wire is in down position.

If that doesn't work, your icemaker maybe defective and needs replacement.

No ice being made. The water is not eing supplied to the ice tray. The water dispenser in the door is working fine.


Well since water is making it to your door the line itself is functioning. You might want to check and see if the fill tube to the ice maker is frozen. Also try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear. If it does then the ice maker is at fault.

Ice maker not working


Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. It’s on the back where the water supply comes in. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

Frigidaire Gallery Professionaly series broken ice maker


If you hook up the water to the fridge, that means you connected the water line to the 'Water Inlet Valve' of the machine. There should be a two wire harness connected to the water valve back. Look for that....

But please note following...

Some water valves in fridges are complicated with one harness for water dispenser line valve and another harness for ice maker water line.

Also seeing a disconnected wire harness does not mean it is for the water valve. May be most likely. But be careful sometime there are test wire harness for technicians to get power readings for components.

My water valve, ( a three solenoid) went haywire, I changed it and now it will not fill the ice maker, but I get water to the door just fine, I double checked my lines, all are right, what should I check...


The next thing to check would be to remove the line from the inlet valve that goes to the ice maker and blow into the line. Make sure the line is clear if you cant blow through it check your fill tub to make sure its not frozen. You could also try switching the wire harnesses for the solenoids (if they are both the same) and then call for water through to door (which in turn should fill your ice maker if you switched the harnesses) Then you would know that the valve is operating properly.
Hope this helps _MJ_

ICEMAKER NOT WORKING NEW WATER LINE


Ice maker must be on(arm up) .If the ice maker is turning and not getting water probably the solenoid valve is bad or the line between the valve and the ice maker is broken or frozen, if its frozen the valve is leaking and needs to be replace.For the ice maker to work the freezer must be working fine (freezing )But if everything is ok and the ice maker still dead(not turning) check if it's plugged in,right behind it and if this is ok the ice maker inside board is bad ,but replacing it is probably better to get a new one.

ICE MAKER NOT MAKING ICE, WATER NOT FEEDING INTO ICE MAKER


you may have a frozen inlet tube coming in to the ice maker. This is caused from a bad water valve and you would need to replace the water valve.

Ice maker stop making ice for kenmore 106.56352500


The ice maker has a problem The ice maker is a separate appliance within the freezer section. Please see the How things Work section of our website to learn about the normal functioning of ice makers. Some common problems with ice makers are:

The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice 
The ice maker is producing ice poorly
The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

The ice maker is producing ice poorly When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve. 

First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.

There's an ice- or water-dispensing problem The ice and water-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Many components work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from a simple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most other components are not user serviceable. We suggest that you contact a qualified appliance repair technician for such repairs.
