Question about U-Line Icemaker

2 Answers

The problem; water drips from beneath the ice maker inside the cooling area. This water eventually freezes and turns the whole ice maker compartment into a block of ice.

    I have the same problem in my U-line .BI 98 ice maker. Very annoying. Plumber came to stop the leaking water and since he did not "repair appliances" he thought it was calcium build up,, but was unsure how to fix. The solenoid controls water to the tray and has to be level to work right. Lines are suppose to be self cleaning, but if turned off/on calcium builds up and causes this problem. Will advise after "repair guy" arrives

Ice maker is not producing ice. Replaced the water filter


  1. It may be turned off. Check the Ice maker shutoff arm located at the top of the ice bin. Look for the wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If the wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. If so, simply lower the wire.
  2. Is there water in the ice cube tray? If not check for water to the water valve. If you have water then it could be either a failed fill valve or ice maker control module is not activating the water valve.
  3. Check for pinched water supply line (behind the fridge)
  4. Do you have an inline water filter? If so, when was it changed last? To test if it is plugged, check for water both before and after the filter system.
  5. Sometimes the water inlet tube that directs water into the ice cube tray freezes over; this can often be thawed out by simply using a hair blow dryer and warming the area (be careful not to overheat the plastics as they can warp or crack). Then adjust the freezer to a slightly warmer setting and make sure water is not constantly dripping from the inlet tube, as it will only freeze over again.
  6. If it continues to drip we may need to replace the water control valve.
  7. The ice maker head assembly may have broken parts. Look to see if the gears are broken.
  8. Check to see if the small plastic arms that rest against the ice rake are broken.
  9. If the ice maker head assembly is modular and you've found broken parts,

Icemaker freezes up and deposits ice at the bottom of the compartment. My icemaker seems to freeze up and stop producing ice while dumping the water to the bottom of the freezer compartment where is...


The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze and can't go where it's supposed to. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

Water dripping from inside of freezer compartment.


The condensate drain has a blockage further down and possibly in one of the turns as it leads down to the pan below your refrigerator. Most times the blockage begins slowly until the opening of the drain hole under the evaporator freezes itself shut. Below is a link to some solutions I have collected over a period of time. Also has a short movie2.gif that makes the repair look simpler. There are many reasons for this happening for example water leaking from a water supply line for the dispenser or ice maker, a crack in the defrost pan, water leaking inside and draining through the refrigerator cabinet, but most are caused by a defrost drain line blockage. Below is a link that may be helpful so try to take it all in and use the parts that most refer to your specific problem, Thanks Sea Breeze

Ice maker leaking inside freezer compartment, water dripping down from unit


If it overfills and drips, look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water.

If it continuously drips, replace the water inlet valve on the back where the house water supply comes in.
The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.

Cooling sometimes, freezer leaking water when it stops freezing


It is probably the defrost thermostat located on upper condenser coil to the left of the fan in the freezer compartment. If not, it could be the defrost timer located near the thermostat in the refrigerator under the plastic dome where the light is. If the defost thermostat or defrost timer is not cycling the defroster heater element on and off correctly... an ice dam forms clogging the drain tube which freezes and blocks water (from the the defroster) to draining down and into the evaporator pan located on top of the compressor in the rear of the unit near the floor.

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.
