Re: PEELING PAINT INSIDE A SMALL U-LINE ICEMAKER
What your going to have to do is shut the unit down and let it dry up you can't have any moisture inside it. use a enamel base paint any would do just be-careful, where your units paint is comming off is also the units evap coil you don't want to do much sanding. Hope this helps you

If water keeps running after the fill cycle is usually indicates a bad fridge inlet valve. This valve controls the amount of water going into your icemaker. It is found where the water line goes into the fridge, usually in the back of the fridge at the bottom. You would need to cut the power to the fridge, turn off the water supply going into the fridge and remove a panel to get to it. You can check out online what a fridge water inlet valve looks like so you can identify it. It usually has 1-2 water lines going into it and 1-2 wire harnesses attached. You can buy new ones at a appliance parts store or online.
First, turn the icemaker off by raising the wire "bar" that is attached to the icemaker until it clicks into the raised position.
Second, if your freezer has an ice dispenser system, make note of the position of the drive gear at the back of the freezer. It will have two prongs that will need to mate with the icemaker bucket. If they aren't lined up with the icemaker bucket auger, then turn the auger by hand until it will line up with the prongs.
Finally, check for a stray ice cube resting inside the freezer, either on the back wall or on the side rails where the bucket rests.
Not sure what setup your ice maker has to let it know when the ice tray is full, but some ice makers have a bail that goes up with rising ice levels. When the ice bucket fills up, the ice maker shuts down. Lifting the bail up all the way until it catches on a small ledge turns this type ice maker off. If ice is allowed to stack in the bucket too high, or is shoved back as someone scooped out ice, the bail may inadvertently have been pushed onto the ledge. Bottom line; check whatever method your ice maker uses to turn off ice production when the bucket is full to see if it is in the OFF position.
Not enough water is being pumped into the icemaker. The water pressure in the water line coming into the refrigerator may be too low, perhaps due to a blockage somewhere.
Move the refrigerator enough to get behind it. Turn off the water at the small valve which connects the water line from the house plumbing to the tube going into the refrigerator. Get a bucket. Remove the refrigerator water line from the on-off valve (there should be a compresson nut holding it on). Point the incoming water line into the bucket and open the valve. Do you have a good flow of water? If so, either there is a blockage in the tubing within the refrigerator or the water valve at the bottom of the back of the refrigerator is malfunctioning.
It could be the water valve or water switch in the icemaker. Now it doesnt call for water until the thermostat is satisfied.Now if you pour water and it goes thru and dumps into the bucket I would try to change the valve.
You need to check and make sure the fill tube is pointing down into the watercup. A clip would hold it down. Then if thats ok do you have flakes in the ice? If yes then replace the icemaker. If no then you need to check the mold to see if the teflon is peeling off the mold.
Your going to call U-line and ask for it. 800-779-2547. Now what are you trying to do? I can give you the wires on the thermostat. Terminal 1 is red(icemaker) Terminal 2 is yellow(common) Terminal 3 is blue/black(compressor and cond fan motor) When yellow and blue or black are closed this will run the compressor and fan.Thermostat is satisfied then the red and yellow are closed and it advances the icemaker. Ejector blade at the 12 oclock calls for freeze cycle. at 2 calls for heater to come on(inside icamaker) at 10 oclock it trios the water switch and calls for water.Then back at 12 oclock calls for freeze cycle. Temps should be 10-15 degrees in the bucket. Warmer the setting the more ice it makes.
not familuar with the brand but sounds like one of 2 issues
if it is overfilling making ice cubes larger than normal, adjust the ice maker fill time if it is possible
icemaker fills and cuts off but water valve seeps water after the fill causing the water overfill
one of the 2
