You should be able to shut off valve and just disconnect the line leading away from it. Sometimes these valves do not seal off completely however. If you have that happen, there is a 1/4 compression cap which can be screwed onto the valve. Look for one at a hardware store.

I have a great model # tpx24srya-bs refrigerator and when the icemaker is on it leaks water from I don't know where. When Ice makers off there's no leak.

There is a solenoid valve and a plastic water hose that connects to the ice maker. Looking at the rear of the unit you can see where the plastic tubing connects from behind the air shield into the solenoid. A second hose connects from the solenoid to the water inlet connection on the wall. The connection to the wall is probably OK because it would leak with the ice maker off if it did,

It is the hose that goes up from the solenoid through a hole at the upper right top that is the most likely culprit.

Look for water coming from a failed hose at or near the solenoid valve connection where the ambient heat is the highest. It is the heat of the hot air that deteriorates the hose. Replace the hose.

After ten years many are known to fail?

Why won't the water come out of the in-door water dispenser? Why won't my ice maker make ice?

Be thoughtful of any water leaks. Water leaking beneath the machine will damage floors.

If both the ice maker and water dispenser are not working it is likely the feed connection from the wall to the unit. The hose/ copper tube can get kinked or the valve at the connection at the wall internally plugged. Close off the water at the wall and using a catch remove the connection at the unit open the valve at the wall and confirm the that water flows freely through.

Check the filter of the water located usually at the front grill near the floor. If the filter is removed the water connection will buipass the filter.

It is not likely with both the ice maker and water dispensor that both electrical solenoid valves have failed.

Ice maker not getting water to it, I recently replaced the copper line from the wall to the refrig with a flexible stainless steel. The refrig stayed disconnected for a week before replacement now I...

Hello DeWayne,
That hose that connects to where the water comes out as it cycles,the end of it where it goes to the top and enters into the freezer/icemaker is frozen and needs to be removed and thawed,you could take that hose off at the water valve and blow through it if you can not blow through it easily its defiently froze,if once you thaw it it becomes froze again within a couple days up to a couple weeks the water valve where that hose connects to at the bottom is bad and causing it to freeze and that valve should be replaced.

I hope this will help you to get your icemaker working,

The Ice Maker is making little to no ice. should the hoses replaced after so many years?

Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects theb you need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking same part needs replaced.The water valve at the bottom rear of fridge.
Thank you for using fixya

Water is not dispensing into ice maker unit from the white flexible plastic hose comeing from rear wall of freezer compartment.

Sounds to me your ice maker fill tube is freezing over due to a leaking or seeping water control valve. This symptom can only be fixed by replacing the dual water control valve=> 12002193 Secondary Water Control Valve See where it says=> Ice Fill Tube at top of refrigerator? Then turn Ice Maker Off and then disconnect the water line to the rear in back at top as illustrated in that picture. You will see water most likely oozing by the water valve. Here is a short Clip done by another and found on my sites and Youtube. Just watch when he pulls the Ice out of that tube. If this does not help please ask and I will again respond, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Ice maker hose running, not shutting off when ice tray is full causeing it to over flow. What can be done? Model CSX24D side by side

Replace the water valve ( pt # WR57X10051 ) . This piece is what the wall water line connects to on the refrig . Also , due to the age of the refrig , I would suggest removing the ice maker ( 2 screws ) and inspecting the inside of the mold for coating disintegration which would cause water to seep thru the uncoated aluminum ( or bubbled coating ) causing the ice maker to leak , but , appear to be overfilling . In this case , replace the ice maker instead .

Icemaker does not work

if the ice maker cycles but is not getting water check the water supply valve that supplies the water to the machine it split and sends water to the door and the ice maker that side of the valve that goes to the ice maker could be bad you can test it with a 120 volt line cord plugged in the wall plug to that side of the water valve if it works with the hose disconnected it may be a blockage or frozen line to the ice maker

Water is not coming into the ice maker but is running into the water side just fine

I'd say you either have a bad water valve or the fill tube that goes through the wall into the ice maker is frozen.
Take the fill tube out and see if it has ice in it.(unscrew the hose going to it, then turn it counterclockwise just a little and pull it out)

Exactly the same.

The hose that carries the water from the top coil to the evaporator pan is plugged with ice. You need to leave your unit unplugged for a long time so the ice in the drain hose can melt. If you restart it too soon the problem will not be solved.

I just replaced my icemaker on a kenmore fridge #2537481240g I heard the soleniod(water valve) enage and the ice maker has gone thru 3-4 cycles but still no water? any suggestions?

Fill tube above ice maker may be frozen. Remove the fill line from the back of the unit where it comes out of the solenoid valve, force ice maker into a harvest put hose in a bucket and see if you get any water when it actuates the valve, the valve may have a clogged screen or not opening at all. If you get water, then you have a frozen fill tube
