Question about Refrigerators
WATER RUNS OUT OF THE ICEMAKER DOWN THE SIDE OF THE FREEZER AND FREEZES EVERYTHING UP....I HAVE PUT IN A NEW WATER VALVE AND STILL DOES IT...ANY SUGGESTIONS?
SRCTE, Are you certain that you installed a NEW water valve? To isolate the problem between the ice maker and the water valve. Remove the ice maker from the refrigerator. Inspect the water fill tube for being stopped up with solid ice. If so, clear the solid ice with a hair dryer blowing hot air into the end of the water fill tube. Insert a long screw driver into the end of the water fill tube to break loose any remaining solid ice up in the tube. Inspect with a flash lite to verify the water fill tube is clear and open. Leave the ice maker out of the refrigerator overnite and operate the refrigerator as normally used. After 6-8 hours, open the freezer door and inspect the end of the water fill tube; if the water fill tube is clear of solid ice then you have a bad ice maker which must be replaced. If on the other hand the water fill tube has ice protruding from the water fill tube then the water valve is defected and must be replaced again. If the water valve is replaced you may desire to install an external in line water filter. Hope this helps you. Henry
