You can not adjust it enough if it is overflowing I would try a new water valve first cause it is cheapest but if it dont fix it then get a knew icemaker

How do I stop my ice maker water filler hose from freezing - which stops water from filling the tray?


This problem is caused by a defective water control valve that does not stop leaking water like a dripping faucet. This causes water to freeze in the water fill tube thus blocking fill of ice tray. Replace water control valve.

Ice keeps getting stuck in ice maker # fsc23r505b2


Most icemakers have a low voltage defrosting element wrapped around the ice shute to prevent the ice from freezing and jamming up. Carefully have a look for any disconnected wires or damage to the heating element. If the ice is getting "glued" together in the ice box itself, its likely that the water tray is overfilling and causing water to run down into the ice box. When it freezes, it freezes all the ice blocks together. In this case, you may need a new ice maker tray or ice maker water valve.

Ksrp25fnbl00 Ice maker stopped producing ice


ksrp25fnbl00 ice maker has stopped making ice. It appears that the water supply that comes down from the top of the interior cabinet is freezing and this is causing the ice tray not to refill. What would cause this?

On my VISB542SS the ice maker , water leaks into the drawer when ice is being made, Ihave removed the unit to check for leaks bot find none.


Hi,


The ice tray releases the ice because the mechanism twists the tray during the end of the cycle. Sediment builds up in the ice try over time and the smooth Teflon surface is no longer smooth, and the ice can get a "grip" on the tray. Then when the tray is twisted, a few cubes remain in the tray. When the measured amount of water then flows into the tray on the next cycle, it is too much. It freezes over the top of the tray, and the next time the tray is twisted, no ice falls out. When water is injected after this, it just runs off the top of the tray into the bin, freezing the ice in the bin. Replace the ice tray every 3-4 years with a new ice tray, and the problem disappears.


Do get back to us for any further query and do not forget to accept it.

The ice maker in my samsung fridge is putting too much water into the ice tray thus dripping water into the ice compartment and freezing all the ice cubes together and dripping through the outlet


Either the icemaker support is broken, DA61-02205A or the ice tray is damaged or has lime buildup. The ice tray is supposed to twist when it flips: an off-center stud on the tray is supposed to catch the support, while the tray is still turning. If it does twist but does not release ice - replace or clean the ice tray, DA63-01453B

Good luck,

No water in ice maker mold


may have a bad valve . but try this first . put about 6 to 8 oz of water in icemaker / when it freezes it will call for a harvest. / if it dumps the ice cubes / at this time the ice maker will call for a refill . if valve is ok it will refill . also ck the water inlet tube to the ice tray . they some times will freeze with ice thus blocking the water fill. hot water up the tube will correct this problem. hope this helped .. mm feed back pls ..

Ice maker overfills and leaks into the ice bin.


I have had a similar problem several times. What I have found is that the ice tray coating has begun to flake off. Then, the ice sticks or partially dumps. Next more ice builds up and when the valve opens the water runs over the partially emptied tray and spills into the bin making "icebergs". The remedy is to replace the tray or if that is not possible, then, the whole icemaker. In fact, I have one down stairs to put in tomorrow. They don't seem to last more than about 4 years or so.

Water does not flow through the dispenser


sounds like the sensors are playing up causing the bottom of the fridge to freeze, this will also cause the water reservior to freeze thus no water to the ice tray and water dispensor. do a full defrost then see if you gain back all the functions proving the sensor fault.

Ice Maker Overflowing


i would recommend changing the water valves as they may be sticking or leaking now you can take the icemaker loose get a small baby bottle short the terminals to cycle water fill catch it with the bottle and see how much water it dumps should be about 4 ounces if the valve leaks will over fill the ice maker over a period of time say the valve is leaking a few drops at a time and the bail arm has the icemaker shut off because its touching ice in the bin but the water just keeps dripping down the fill tube till it runs over did you replace the whole icemaker or just the motor module
