When you installed the filter did you make sure to purge the filter. Meanins did you run water through the filter to make sure you have got all the air out?

Water flow tube on ice maker leaking by causing ice blockage


When the ice maker calls for water, the valve sends water to the ice maker in the appropriate amount and then shuts off, sending no more water until the ice maker calls for it again. If the water fill line is freezing up, this will cause a leak the next time the ice maker calls for water. The water has to go somewhere. The problem is more than likely the the water valve. It is not shutting off completely and it is allowing a small trickle of water to be constantly sent to the ice maker. This causes the fill line to freeze up and clog. Replace the water valve and defrost the water fill line and solve the problem.

Ice maker has quit working


Try disconnecting the water line going to the ice maker from the back of the refrigerator for an hour or so. it is possible there is ice in the fill line, not allowing water to get to the ice maker. If you don't use much ice, this is a more likely issue.

I have a whrilpool refrigerater the ice maker will not fill with water?


Bonjour,
Ice makers can clog. The water valve can stick open or closed or even not work at all. The water fill nozzle can clog with ice or food. If the unit has been moved the water line could be kinked or the water filter may be clogged. Maybe the water valve for the ice maker water line is turned off. Is there one under the sink? Inside most ice makers there is a thermostat that tells the ice maker that the water is frozen and it's time to dump the ice cubes. That starts a geared motor running to dump out the cubes. And in some cases a mold heater is turned on to help break the ice cubes loose. A lot of ice makers have a cam attached to the motor that turns with the shaft. When the ice cubes are gone the cam starts a timer to refill the ice maker with fresh water to make some more ice cubes. Most "fill" cycles of ice makers are "timed fill". The fill cycle has to start and stop to get fresh water into the ice maker. There may be another thermostat that monitors the air temperature where the ice maker is mounted. If that thermostat thinks the air is not cold enough to freeze water nothing happens. If all the steps don't happen at the right time no ice cubes are made.

Ice make has stopped making ice


Good day, lots of reasons an ice maker will stop making ice. Just take a step by step procedure and it will solve the problem.
The freezer must be at normal temperature. At least 12 degrees or colder.
First step is to take a small paper cup of water and fill the cavity until it is near full. With the ice maker turned on, close freezer door and wait 3 hours to see if it harvests. If not, the ice maker is bad, and must be replaced. If the cubes harvest then.......
Three possibilities.
1. The water supply from the house is not delivering water to the water valve. Shut off the house at the meter, disconnect the line going to the water valve, and with the line pointed into a bucket, have someone turn the valve back on for a 15 second count. The water should come out smartly. If not, the line and it's fittings will have to be replaced.
2. The fill tube from the back of the machine that feeds water into the back of the ice maker is frozen up. You will have to remove the ice maker to visually inspect that tube. If blocked, it needs to be defrosted, but use caution. Too much heat too fast will start to melt plastic and vinyl parts you don't want melted.
If this is the case, then once cleaned out, you will have to change the water valve located in the back bottom rear of the machine because it is leaking during the off cycle.
3. If everything checks O.K. up to this point, you will have to purchase and install a new water valve, and install it.
P.S. Under very rare occasions the electric circuity in the ice maker will fail to send a signal to the water valve. Although rare, it can happen, in which case the best option is to replace the ice maker and water valve.

Ge s/s icemake floods water


Icemaker generally has only about a 6 second fill time. Most likely a particle made it past the screen in the fill valve and would not allow the internal diaphram in the valve to seal. You can't get to the internal parts of the valve. Replace the valve. Consider an in-line filter installation before the refrig hook up to prevent this from repeating.

ICE MAKER WILL NOT MAKE ICE


Good day,
The first thing to check is the freezer temperature. If it is allowed to go above 15 degrees the ice maker will lock out by design.
If the freezer is O.K. then follow these steps to isolate the problem.
First step is to take a small paper cup of water and fill the cavity until it is near full. With the ice maker turned on, close freezer door and wait 3 hours to see if it harvests. If not, the ice maker is bad, and must be replaced. If the cubes harvest then.......

I have a GE bottom freezor model#GBS22HCPAWW.The fill tube has frozen four times after thawing.What are possible reasons.


The fill tube at the ice maker will freeze up when you have a leaky water inlet valve. It's on the back where the water source is connected to the unit. You can disconnect the water line that goes up to the ice maker and watch and see if you have a drip. This water will go to the fill tube and gradually block the tube as it is frozen when it reaches the cold air in the fill tube. You may be able to clean the valve out or just replace it.

Ice Maker is not working on my Whirlpool Gold Refrigerator


I removed six screws from the ice maker to pull it out of the refrigerator.  Their are four screws holding the ice maker in place and two screws on the ice maker door.  Had problems getting the electrical harness disconnected.  Used hot water to removed the ice cubes that were struck in the ice tray.  Poured all remaining water into a bucket and re-installed ice maker.  As of now, the ice maker is making ice !

Samsung Ice Maker on Mdl RB215LASH


It is quite possible the water line near the ice-maker is frozen. I would try a warm hair drier to thaw it out.
