It should be going to the fill valve inside of the unit. it should be by the evaporator plate.

    i apologize there is a plaec on the back of the ice machiunre where the water gets hooked. up to

    User’s Manual


    On Ice Maker models BI 2015 and Combo 2075FF, install a 1/4 inch

    outside diameter copper water line (not supplied with unit) from the

    nearest COLD water pipe. When connecting the water supply, follow

    these guidelines:

    • Review the local plumbing codes before you install the unit.

    • The water pressure should be between 15 and 150 psi.

    • Install a shut-off valve in the 1/4 inch outside diameter supply


    • Connect sufficient tubing to the unit to allow the unit to be

    moved for cleaning and servicing. However, make certain that

    the tubing is not pinched or damaged during installation.

    • U-Line recommends the use of copper tubing for installation.

    Figure 3

    1. Locate the compression fitting

    and ferrule packed in the

    unit. Slide the compression

    fitting and ferrule over the

    1/4 inch outside diameter

    water supply line. Do not use

    thread sealing compound or

    Using two wrenches,

    tighten the compression fitting

    on the supply line (see

    Figure 3).


    2. Carefully bend the water supply

    line into position and connect

    the line to the solenoid valve

    (see Figure 4). Avoid kinking

    the water supply line.




    Figure 4


    3. For recessed installations,

    allow extra water supply line

    length to provide slack for easy

    removal from the recessed

    area (see Figure 5). This will

    also safeguard against kinking

    the line.

    Figure 5


    If you are not intending to use

    the ice maker and do not connect

    the water supply (or turn

    the supply valve off), it is

    imperative to raise the bin

    arm of the ice maker (see

    Figure 6). Failure to raise the

    bin arm may result in damage

    to the water valve.

The water line connects right behind the grill in the front of the unit. The line goes through the back and routes up to the front. You should know that plastic line is NOT recommended for the supply line. PLease only use copper or call the mfg to get an install kit. They have a really nice braided line kit for this unit.

Every day or 2 I have to mop up water on the freezer side of my side by side. it is about 10 years old now.

sounds like the drain is might have to remove the inside back panel in the freezer but look at the bottom of the panel,if you see ice there,there's a drain hole under the ice,melt it out with a hair dryer then you have to clear the drain,i use a steamer to do this,i stick the nozzle into the hole and the steamer blasts through whatever is in the hole,if you don't have a steamer you can try to melt the ice and then blow hot air into the hole to melt the ice down in the drain,then use a turkey baster or anything that will blow into the hole,when you think the drain is clear pour hot water into the hole,if it goes down the hole it's clear if not keep hitting it until the water goes down,watch out trying to snake anything into the hole,the lines are plastic,you can try a plastic tie to snake down the hole.if the drain isn't blocked check to see if one of the water lines are leaking from under the fridge or you could have a problem with the ice maker but you'll see ice forming from that,,good luck.

Icemaker makes shells. Outside is frozen but

Hollow cubes are caused by not having enough water in the ice mold. Fill it up manually by pouring water in it and see how the cubes turn out.
look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water. + is more water.

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.

There is a screen filter before the water inlet valve in the water line. It can get partially stopped up with sediment blocking water flow.

Maytag fridge no water to icemaker any suggestions

Pour about 2/3 cup of water into ice maker . If it freezes and dumps , replace the water valve . If it does not dump , replace the icemaker . Also make sure the coils are clean beneath refrig , and the clear fill tube , which fills the icemaker , is clear of ice (not frozen up ).

Ice maker does not work this is less than a year old and it has stoped working water is on as the water side works

Is the freezer cold enough? Should be close to 10 degrees.
Is there water or ice in the ice mold? If not put water in it and see if it dumps the ice after it’s frozen. If there is ice, lift the cut off arm and let it drop to see if it will start.
If it does dump the ice but don’t refill with water.
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.

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. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

Ice maker has quit making ice

Lower the freezer temp. The icemaker won't come on until the temp is low enough.

The same thing happened to me. If you pull the refrigerator out and remove the large silver panel, you will see the water lines on the left. The line going to the ice maker was fine, but the line going to the water dispenser was split. You may have the same issue.

Jenn air side by side refrigerator ice maker not working

On mine the water inlet feed tube would freeze solid. Removing the ice tray and using a hair dryer to completely thaw the tube would get it working for another month or so. My frig had a solid rubber inlet tube. I noticed at the appliance store that newer models had an inlet tube that was split on top. I got one of these from a local appliance parts store, and it fixed the problem. The tube replacement it easy. Get to the back of the frig. Turn off the water supply. Carefully pry the white plastic piece out ( located on the upper right side when facing the back of the frig. ) of the frig. When you have the new one in hand it will be clear what you are going to do. Pull out the old remove the water line. Attach the line to the new tube and insert it. Turn on water, check for leaks, and you should be ok. This repair is only effective if you have an inlet tube that freezes up. There can be many other malfunctions that stop ice makers from working. This was my problem. Replaced the tube 3 years ago and ice maker has worked fine since the replacement.
