Question about Refrigerators
When the ice maker water line is on, it's constantly running. We start the valve off but water is still running from under neath the front of the fridge.
Can you tell if there is any water in the ice cube "basket"? If it is full, then your ice maker is not sensing the water level "full" and keeps running. The fridge is normally able to handle a little overflow, about one pint or so, but cannot handle a constant run of water. If it is empty, the supply line may be disconnected somehwhere along its route, most likely near the bottom and at the rear of the fridge. You can pull the fridge out and look at it by removing the back cover. If the line is disconnected, reconnect and have a happy new year. If it is connected, here are two options as I see it.
One - check to make sure your ice maker is properly plugged in and installed at its location in the freezer. If you or someone you love has recently cleaned the fridge or shoved a fifty pound turkey in there, the ice maker may have come dislodged.
Two - replace the icemaker. These units come as a single purchase as you cannot just buy the senser. Cost of most of these I have seen are about $125 for the part (easy to install), which can be a deal breaker. Ice cube trays are $1.99 for two at the local hardware and they don't usually overflow.
