The icemaker is not making ice, no water is getting through

We installed the icemaker on our bottom drawer LG refrigerator, and it does not make ice. We have checked the water line and the water is running through, but the icemaker does not seem to be getting any water.

    My refrigerator suddenly stopped making ice. A while ago the dispenser stopped dispensing water. There is water in the hose getting to the fridge.

Another user on this site is having a similar problem. What I suggested to that user is that they call the manufacturer before calling an appliance technician to see if there is a remedy for this problem in that it may be common with their product. Nothing beats saving money by making a free phone call. With that being said, I think the problem is in the solenoid of the ice makers. Water is getting to the solenoid but it is not turning on to allow flow beyond that point. It could be defective or it may be something as simple as trash or air in the line.

Tip

Water in the freezer compartment


I had water leaking in to the freezer compartment of my LG french-door refrigerator (LFD25860). It was getting on to food in the main basket and embedding it in a block of ice, as well as puddling-up on the bottom of the freezer and eventually blocking the door from closing properly. Because the water seemed to be covering a wider area than you would expect from a blocked defroster drain I didn't believe that my problem was covered by the other FixYa recomendations -and it turned out I was right.
The problem turned out to be that the "funnel" that the water flows through to fill up the ice tray was blocked by a solid piece of ice. When the icemaker would call for more water it would flow down the clear tube (with the open slots on the top) hit the ice and spray/overflow in to the freezer compartment.
The solution was obviously to pop this ice out, but that did require me to remove the icemaker from the wall of the freezer compartment. To do this you
  • remove one screw from the bracket on the bottom of the icemaker
  • Slide the icemaker up and slip it off of the two screws with rubber grommets on them.
By the time I got to that stage I had already removed the basket from the main drawer and removed the pull out tray/basket from the drawer pulls (by simply lifting the plastic tab on the right side and lowering the plastic tab on teh left side). I am not sure if you can remove the icemaker without this step, but I believe so.
Also, if you want to entirely remove the icemaker from the freezer there is only one plug with wiring to undo. As I mentioned above, the water hose doesn't not connect to the icemaker, it ends above the "funnel" and the water drops in. So removal is much simpler than you might expect.

As for the cause of the ice block, I am not sure but I believe it was either because the ice maker made too much ise one time and some cubes could not pop out. When additional water entered the funnel it didn't flow in to the ice tray, backed up, and froze in the funnel. The other thought is that when the door was not closed properly while our grandparents were visiting, the ice melted and subsequently re-froze causing the problem.

Your icemaker is surely at fault. Shut the water off at the valve, turn off the icemaker, and defrost again. Does it happen again? If not, check your icemaker assembly for leaks or replace the water inlet valve if necessary. Good luck.

Ice maker does not make ice.


The water tube to the icemaker inside the refrig may be frozen up. Thaw out with your hair dryer. To make sure the tube is clear. Shut of the water to the refrig, disconnect the inlet water line to the icemaker. Insert a flexable through the connector fitting, I used a zip tie. The flexable item should go all the way to the icemaker

Solution #2 Replace the "water inlet valve" at bottom back right of refrig. Easy To Do.

Plastic water bottles on upper shelves sometimes have small leaks. Remove all above water containers. Maybe you spill some water replacing ice trays? Identify the source of water..that will be the cause of problem.

Maytag MFD2560HES - water flow restricted - noisy fridge


The flow of water is controlled by a solenoid. Thus magnetic -- rather electromagnet which mones the vale from open & close, both in the ice-maker & the water dispenser.
Thus the valve which is activated when door closes, must have lost its earlier condition and must be making an irritable buzz whenever its on. Simply get the Valve assembly replaced, preferably from their authorized service center closest to your place of residence.

Icemaker makes too few cubes


Find the water source for the ice maker(most are under the kitchen sink and are tapped off of the cold water line to the faucets) You need to either shut off the tap by turning it clockwise until it is closed. Then you need to disconnect the vinyl tubing from the valve. get a bucket and place it where it will catch the water from the tap. Gradually open the tap by turning it counterclockwise until water starts to come out of the valve. If you have a large enough bucket open the valve all of the way. If the stream of water does not change then the valve is bad and needs replacing. If the stream is nice and strong then the valve is ok. Turn the valve clockwise to close it, reattach the vinyl tubing and open the vale all of the way. This should improve the quanity of ice cubes. If not then there is a cripmp in the vinyl line between the tap and the solinoid valve on the back of the refrigerator.

Ice maker not making cubes


You may have ice built up in icemaker where the water goes into it.  You will have to remove the icemaker and to get the ice cleared out.  Once that's done, you should be ok.
