Ice maker wont work after water turned off then back on in few da

Hello, Our water line that supplies water to the ice maker sprung a leak. We turned off the water for a few days till we could get a new line and install it. When we turned the ice maker back on it wouldn't work. It has always worked extreamly well before. It is a Frigidaire Elite with an Ice maker TK 8. Any ideas on how to get it back working. It was working perfectly till we cut the water off then back on after a few days.
Thank you in advance for whatever help you can give me.

It's common for the icemaker fill tube to freeze up when water pressure is lost such as when water is turned off for a long period of time. the fill tube is the piece that comes into the back of the icemaker from the rear of the refrig. what i do is heat the tube up with a hair dryer and melt the ice out. message back if you have any other problems or questions thanks peyton..

Why is my GE (ZFSB23D SS) side by side refrigerator leaking at the back corner, near the rear wheel where the plastic water line goes in?


If the tubing is plastic it could have cracked when you moved the tubing to install the filter. If the tubing is OK then possinly the filter isn't all the way in or is leaking.

Ice maker wont work


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.

If 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.

No you should not need to reset anything get the water line to flow threw the water supply and raise the lever on the ice maker till water comes out if you don't get water out check to see if you left the shutoff valve off. Hope this helps. Thanks for using fix-ya.

What once was a leak is now no flow and no response when trying to turn on ice maker? Is the valve where the ice maker line taps into turned back on? If it's back on, first turn it off, take loose water line as close to ice maker as possible, then have someone else turn valve at tap slightly on while you watch for water flow. If no flow, start back-tracing your connections until you find the blockage. Most water connections of this type have a in-line filter. Is it clogged? If you have water pressure as close to the ice maker as you can test, next you may need to troubleshoot the ice maker it's self. Let me know?

There's an ice- or water-dispensing problem The ice and water-dispensing system of your refrigerator is quite complex. Many components work together to provide the ice and water. Aside from a simple problem of a leaky water tube or a jammed ice chute, most other components are not user serviceable. We suggest that you contact a qualified appliance repair technician for such repairs.

Ice maker not making ice after replacing water line.


Ice makers are a common problem. On many brands there is a reset button behind the plastic cover. However if you physically see Ice clogging your water inlet to the ice maker, this will without a doubt prevent the ice maker from making ice. Use hot water or a steamer to unclog the ice or you can leave the unit unplugged for a few hours to defrost the freezer. You should be able to hear when the ice maker cycles and lets in water. Note: if you're getting plenty of water out of your in door water dispenser, then it's NOT a water supply problem. You may need to check the solenoid that controls water entering the ice maker.
