Try closing the water valve slightly to reduce the water pressure to the unit.

Make sure your door fits good and flat. I run a piece of paper all around it to check the seal. Close the door on the piece of paper and try to slide it. Check all around.

I suggtes investigate each of these two areas if your icemaker is not making ice:

Water Inlet Valve

Your icemaker's water inlet valve could be filled with ice. If it is, simply thaw the its water tube with a hair dryer to remove the blockage. Be careful to not melt any plastic parts with the blow dryer.
An icemaker's water inlet valve has a filtering screen to block minerals and other debris from entering into your ice cubes. It is possible that the water inlet valve's screen is blocked, and not allowing any water through to make ice. Clean out any built up debris you find. You should be able to pop the screen out of place with a screwdriver and then put it back in place with the screwdriver again once it is cleaned.
Alternatively, the water inlet valve itself may have become defective. You will have to test it. If the test proves the valve is defective, replace it.

Check this Directions for testing an icemaker water inlet valve.; before you begin to test your icemaker's water inlet valve, make sure you disconnect the appliance's power supply. The easiest way to do this is to unplug the unit from the wall. Alternatively, you could trip the appropriate switch in the circuit breaker panel, or you could remove the appropriate fuse from your home's fuse box:

  1. Locate your icemaker's water inlet valve, it is typically located behind a refrigerator. Gently pull your refrigerator away from the wall. You may want to place scraps of carpet, of some other soft material below the fridge to prevent damage to the floor. Turn of the water valve's water supply by closing the shut-off valve in the waterline leading to the water valve. Remove the lower access panel on the back of the refrigerator using a screwdriver or a nut driver.
  2. Place a container under the valve to catch any water that may spill from the water valve and its fill tube. Remove the water valve's fill tubing. Loosen the flare nut on the brass fitting that is found on the inlet side of the water valve. You can use a wrench to loosen the flare nut.
  3. Your water inlet valve is held in place on your refrigerator by means of a metal bracket. Use a screwdriver or a nutdriver to remove the screw that holds the water valve's bracket to the refrigerator cabinet. Gently pull the water valve out of the cabinet, and remove the tube from the outlet port.
  4. There are two wires connecting to the terminals of your water inlet valve. If yours is a double solenoid water valve, it will have four wires. Be sure to label each wire so that you know where to reconnect them later. Firmly grasp the metal connector of the wires in order to remove the wires. You may need to use a pair of needle-nosed pliers. Do not pull on the wires themselves.
  5. Set your multitester to the R X 1 ohms setting to test for continuity. Place each of the multitester's leads on a terminal. Your multitester should display a reading between 200 and 500 ohms. Closely examine your water inlet valve. The exact ohm resistance rating you should test for may be marked on the valve.
  6. If the test you conduct with your icemaker water inlet valve does not produce these results, then you should replace the component.




Defrost Thermostat
It could just be that your freezer thermostat is not set low enough. Try adjusting the thermostat to a colder setting.
Or your icemaker might not be making ice because of a defective defrost thermostat. Test your defrost thermostat to determine if it has malfunctioned. If it has, you will need to replace it.


Check this directions for testing a refrigerator defrost thermostat; remember that, before you begin to test your defrost thermostat, make sure you disconnect the appliance's power supply. The easiest way to do this is to unplug the unit from the wall. Alternatively, you could trip the appropriate switch in the circuit breaker panel, or you could remove the appropriate fuse from your home's fuse box:
  1. Locate your refrigerator's defrost thermostat. In freezer-on-top models, it may be located under the floor of the unit, or it could be found at the back of the freezer. If you have a side-by-side refrigerator, the defrost thermostat is found at the back of the freezer side. The thermostat is wired in series with the defrost heater, and when the thermostat opens, the heater shuts off. You will have to remove any objects that are in your way such as the contents of the freezer, freezer shelves, icemaker parts, and the inside rear, back, or bottom panel.
  2. The panel you need to remove may be held in place with either retainer clips or screws. Remove the screws or use a screwdriver to release the clips holding the panel in place. Some older refrigerators may require that you remove a plastic molding before you can gain access to the freezer floor. Exercise caution when removing the molding, as it does break fairly easily. You could try warming it with a warm, wet towel first.
  3. There are two wires leading from the thermostat. They are attached to terminals with slip-on connectors. Gently pull on the connectors to release the wires from the terminals. You may need to use needle nosed pliers to help you. Do not pull on the wires themselves.
  4. Proceed to remove the thermostat. It may be secured in place with a screw, clip, or clamp. The thermostat and the clamp on some models are one assembly. On other models, the thermostat clamps around the evaporator tubing. In some other cases, the thermostat is removed by squeezing in on the clip and pulling the thermostat up.
  5. Set your multitester to the R X 1 ohms setting. Place each of the multitester's leads on a thermostat wire. When your thermostat is cold, it should produce a reading of zero on your multitester. If it is warm (anywhere from forty to ninety degrees Fahrenheit), then this test should produce a reading of infinity. If the results you receive from your test differ from the ones presented here, then you will need to replace your defrost thermostat.

Hope helps, tell us news.

What you should do is take out the broken one, and look for printing on it as to what size it is. In our LG, I believe it was 5/16" inner diameter, but yours could be different. Just about any hardware store will sell polyethylene tubing, and you can just buy a few feet.

I take it your water line is not copper. It may be old and getting fragile. I would replace the line with copper and check the water pressure in your home to make sure it isn't too high. (the maximum water pressure for a residence is 80psi.)

Thinking about getting a fridge with a water dispenser - do I need to have a conection to a water pipe


Yes, With a water dispenser or even an ice maker you need to connect to a cold water pipe. The connection is a simple "saddle valve" which clamps over your water line and then you screw a sharp piercing point into the water line. After peircing the water line you back the point back out to let the water flow. A 1/4" tubing either plastic or copper will go from the valve to the back of the refrigerator. The tubing hooks to the back of the refrigerator with a simple slip or compression fitting.
You can run the tubing for long distances if you need to but usually in a kitchen area it is not too far to find a water pipe.
So go ahead and buy that fridge that you want, knowing that the hookup will be a simple easy, procedure!!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

Cannot install water line


I too had to scratch my head to locate where to connect the water line for the ice maker. Looking at the rear of the frig on the bottom right you will see a white plastic cover that the black plastic line goes into. There is a screw on the right side. Undo the screw and then pry off the white plastic cover. You will see a black plastic cap over the threaded water line connector. This is where you connect you line as approprite. I hooked up the line and turned the water supply back on and then you have to turn on the ice maker. I works great. Problem is the manual is not clear at all. Guess they assumed that the installler would be hooking it up. Once you know what to do is is a piece of cake. Good Luck. Doug S. in Poland, OH
