SOURCE: Q: Does the water for the ice maker go thru the in-fridge filter?

the water should go thru the filter first then to everything else.

The ice maker likely needs replacing.
But ceck it to make sure its not hung up.

Does it have ice frozen in it or is it just turning arround.

Remove it and see if the heater underneath has a hold burnt in it.

Its just a plug in unit you can order one online.

SOURCE: ICE MAKER NOT MAKING ICE, WATER NOT FEEDING INTO ICE MAKER

Hi

If  The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

The ice maker is producing ice poorly When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve. 

First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.

Water valve is a dual valve. One for water, one for ice. Switch the wires to test.

Water frozen in the freezer supply line - you need to thaw out the freezer. About six hours, door open, turn freezer OFF. You'll need a cooler with dry ice for your frozen food. 99% certain it'll work after that.

Ge profile refrig - watrer dispenser does not deliver water. Ice maker works fine. What is wrong?


Water solenoid at the rear of the fridge has failed, there is two or three solenoids there, locate the one that does water feed to the door (not ice maker) and do a load test or just replace. Also make sure you dont have a filter safety cut-off, check filter cond and it is located perfectly in housing, check lines inside and outside fridge unit for obstructions. Good luck.

No water,light, or ice on the door


The control panel is most likely at fault. They are all controlled by the panel. Very rare for all 3 devices to go faulty seperately

Ice maker not getting water


Probably the dual water valve (that opens when the ice maker needs water ) is leaking and the filling tube gets clogh with ice , or the valve doesn't work ,in both cases it has to be replace.

Kenmore Ice Maker Not Making Ice


the water that is frozen in the fill tube could have come from the old water valve that you replaced ,you got to get the ice out, the easiest way ,though not the fastest ,is to unplug fridge for 24 hrs . and leave the doors open to let it defrost, the plug back up and hopefully in 5 or 6 hrs you'll have ice

ICE MAKER NOT MAKING ICE, WATER NOT FEEDING INTO ICE MAKER


you may have a frozen inlet tube coming in to the ice maker. This is caused from a bad water valve and you would need to replace the water valve.

Items in freezer melting, Ice maker empty, fridge feeling warm


hi there,

you have 2 problems:

frist check the freezer thermostat and make sure that it's set to at least 5 or 6. if that is okay and you still have this problem, you may need to have the thermostat replaced and maybe more.

as far as the icemaker, if it's just the ice part that does not work, i would recommend checking the valve and water line coming into the icemaker.

can you tell me if this is a side by side or a top or bottom mount freezer? if you have the model #, that would be great.
