    ice maker water is not refilling

  • Anonymous Mar 16, 2014

    when the door switch is pressed for water, the water goes into the ice maker, and all over inside the freezer. When the ice is pressed, the auger works, but the ice maker does not fill.

I had the same problem with my LRFC25750 and have finally figured out what's happening! The water that is pooling and freezing on the bottom of the freezer is definitely coming from the defrost cycle. It is pooling inside the freezer compartment because the drain inside the back of the freezer intended to carry the defrost water down to the external evaporator tray underneath is blocked with ice. As a result, the defrost water from the coils overflows the collector under the coils and runs down the inside back of the freezer, pools on the bottom, and re-freezes when the cycle is over. this continues until there's so much ice on the bottom that the water from next defrost cycle runs out on the floor. The "easy" solution is to unplug the unit and let it completely melt out (this could take 24-36 hours). I couldn't wait, so I removed the freezer drawers and their tracks and pulled out the back panel inside the freezer -- saw the ice in the collector and blocking the drain and I melted it away with hot water and verified that water could now flow down to the external evaporator tray. Unless you want to do this, I'd say give it a good 24-36 hours for all the ice to melt away. I think it all started when we left the freezer door ajar for a whole day and probably had a lot of frost build-up on the coils. The next defrost cycle was not enough to clear all the frost and things began to build up from there. Once the drain is frozen, though, you're finished -- the defrost heater doesn;t reach down that far and you have to melt it down completely or it will continue to leak forever. I've heard that you can get a drain heater to ensure that the drain never freezes over or at least so that it is sure to clear with each defrost cycle. I'll post an update if I locate one.

    OK, I found a reference to a drain heater that will keep this problem from recurring. The reference also confirms that the problem of water pooling and freezing on the bottom of the freezer can be caused by a frozen drain and can be solved this way. Follow this link:

Most supply pipes for the ice maker sections have removable supply pipes which literally plug into the back of the cabinet above the ice maker. The omly thing I could suggest is locating that supply pipe and seeing if it has become dislodged. It should just be a case of resecuring this pipe, it may also be worth while to check for a crack in that pipe also. Hope this is of some help, it doesnt sound like a major fault or something you cant find.

No ice in lower freezer or upper ice maker

Had Numerous similar problems for about a year, No ice in either the top or the bottom trays and the bottom leaked into the bottom of the freeze.
First thing I did was install a pump onto the water line supplying water to the ice maker inlet, thinking the water pressure was low. The pump hasn't run since I installed it six months ago so the water pressure is fine. Second I replaced the solenoid assembly thinking I had a bad unit. Still same issues.
Finally as a last resort I decided to bypass the water filter. Now both the top and the bottom ice makes more ice than I know what to do with.
It's easy to do my just using the hose couplers that are mounted on the water lines.
Second thing I did was install a 1" piece of 3/4 clear hose (available from any big box hardware store), cut the bottom end at a 40 degree angle an slid it over the fill tube going into the ice maker tray on the bottom unit. In my case the tube was just a tad too short. Be careful forcing in onto the existing fill tube as I think you can actually push it up further into the freezer housing. I don't think it's mounted very well on the inside. The tube should just be long enough to make it past the lip of the fill tray.
Last thing I did was reset the refrigerator to factory settings. I found that if I made the freezer too cold the fill water would freeze eventually coming out of the fill tube.

I have a hotpoint refrigerator freezer that works fine except i am having issues with the ice maker. The tube carrying the water to the ice maker goes through a support cup. Water has started freezing in...

Make sure tube is pushed all the way into back wall tight.Then make sure tube angles downward so water completely drains. This is a goofy GE problem.

My freezer is not freezing anymore please help as can not afford a new one ..thank you

Follow the steps mentioned below to solve the problem:
First remove the ice bin and look inside the mold of the ice maker to see if it is full of ice. If the ice sensing arm is down ( on position) and the ice maker is full of ice, there is a failure inside the ice maker and the ice maker should be replaced.
If there is no ice in the ice maker, look at the fill tube on the rear of the ice maker. If the fill tube is frozen up the ice maker can't fill.
You can defrost the fill tube with a hair dryer.
The water valve on the rear of the refrigerator supplies water to the water dispenser and the ice maker. Since the water dispenser is working, the only line that could be blocked runs up the back of the cabinet and attaches to the fill tube for the ice maker. The water valve could be bad and not sending water to the ice maker.
If the fill tube freezes again you should replace the water valve.
Hope this helps.

We have a GE Profile refrig, circa 1995. The ice

If you are sure it is caused by the ice maker or if it is not it can be fixed. The only way an ice maker would leak like that is if ice is blocking the inlet tube and when the water comes on the water is spewed in a different direction than the ice maker. Most times this is caused by a slow leak in the water control valve for the ice maker side at the rear of the refrigerator. You can stop the problem by melting the ice in the fill tube with a hair dryer and keeping an eye on it until you see ice beginning to build up there again. That would indicate a slow leak in the water control valve that is not closing all the way when off. The other reason for large pools of ice in the freezer is a frozen over defrost condensate drain behind the cover in the rear of the freezer and would require you to unplug power and remove the rear panel. I will try to get some photos and a link shortly that covers that problem a lot more in just a few minutes. Sea Breeze

Water leaking to bottom of freezer

ok you have a blocked freezer drain. The best thing to use to clear this is 'curtain wire (the plastic coated wire you use to hold up net curtains). Ok you need to find the drain hole in the "small tray on the back wall inside that fills and freezes and then the water is overflowing at this point to the bottom of freezer" you want to gentley feed the curtain wire down the hole untill the water drains down there. If you can't get the wire down you may need to turn the unit off to defrost as it could be frozen solid with ice. cheers

Water is freezing in the supply line for the ice maker

This usually means you have a weeping water valve. The water valve doesn't completely shut down after filling the icemaker. This deposits a staedy flow of water which freezes and accumulates in the tube, eventually blocking it off. You would need to replace the water valve which is located at the rear of the refrigerstor. One othe thing to check would be the water supply to the refrig. If the water dispenser is working fine then that isn't an issue. However, if that is flowing slowly you would need to replace the saddle valve which is tapping into your house water supply.

There is a water leak inside the freezer

You need to remove the bottom two baskets, or more to make space. Using a hairdryer, defrost the back area. You should be able to locate a drain hole in the center below the freezer coils. This drain hole is connected on the outside to a drainpipe which has a p trap and often gets blocked up. You need to force water down the drain hole. You can use a turkey baster or similar type of plunger filled with water. Once you have cleared the blockage pour hot water till it runs freely. Hope this sorts your problem, don't forget to rate me.

Ice maker freezing up

The problem is in the water valve.
The water supply line going to the Ref is connected to a water valve. This valve is not shutting off completely which causes water to drip into the ice maker. This dripping will freeze and eventually completely block the fill tube in the freezer.
