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

    User’s Manual

    CONNECTING THE WATER SUPPLY

    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

    line.

    • 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

    tape.
    Using two wrenches,

    tighten the compression fitting

    on the supply line (see

    Figure 3).

    UL134

    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.

    UL103

    WATER

    CONNECTION

    Figure 4

    9

    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

    CAUTION

    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.

My ice maker quit working.


Ice not being dumped out because the heating element designed to slightly melt ice so arms can push it out is non functional and needs replacement. Cheaper and better to replace entire unit at nominal cost.

Uline Echelon Ice Maker P1 error code


P1 is a indicator of a slow or clogged drain check to make sure that every thing is draining good if line is clear make sure pump is coming on to pump the water out of the bin. once all is clear unplug the unit for an hour then plug back in this will clear code unless you still have a drain issue.

Our automatic ice maker will not quit dripping in the freezer. It keeps clogging the ice maker with icicles and large blocks of ice. Essentially, it keeps "freezing over." We have defrosted it...


if it keeps filling and overflowing you have a bad water valve on the back of the fridge.the part number is WR57X10027 and the valve is around 75 dollars.first thing lift the arm or shut off the ice maker so it won't leak anymore,you're missing a few letters off of the model number so when you call your parts store give them the full model number,open the fridge door,look up on the right hand side wall up near the ceiling and give them the model number to make sure you get the correct valve,shut off the water supply to the fridge,then have the new valve next to the old valve when you remove a water line from the old valve just connect it to the new valve,do this until everything is changed out and the new valve is in place,turn on the water supply and you can check the ice maker to make sure it doesn't overflow.you can manually start the ice maker by grabbing the plastic arms of the ice maker and pull them forwards slowly until the arms start to advance on their own,you'll hear the water valve fill the ice maker and then you can watch it fill to see if the water is filling it correctly and i'm sure you'll be fine with the new water valve installed

Not making Ice


Is the freezer at least 10 degrees? Is there water in the ice mold? If not put some to see if it will harvest after it freezes. If no water getting to ice mold 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 the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.
The valve can leak because of sediment in the water preventing it from closing or low water pressure.

I have an old U-line ice maker. I can not find


The mechanical parts of those models is the same as a BI 95 or BI98. If your looking for the faceplate that would be part number 150. This includes the timer motor,gears,water switch, and hold switch. You can order this thru a parts distributor. Appliance Parts Depot or All Brand Parts should be able to help. If you want to replace the complete icemaker assemly that part number is 402

BCM-95 Icemaker Was working fine until we moved Water does not go in..we have changed the water value and it still does not work.


fi you are using a percing valve you need to change it to a regular 1/2 by 1/4 compression vlve,, go to a half inch cold water line cut a tee in the line install a 1/2 out let pipe fot the ice maker, then install your valve run a 1/4in line to the ice maker, you shoud have no rblems,, it has to have volume with water supply in order to work, a percing valve is just that, it has a needle on the end you clamp it to the pi[e scre in the "t" handle till it perces the pipe, then back it off to open the water suply alot of times this is not enough to supply the water for the ice maker,,
