If you have the line connected to the rear of frig. and the valve is on with no leaks you do have it hooked up properly. The water has to go through a series of solenoids and about forty or fifty feet of tubing before it reaches the door. This process takes a bit.Hold a glass under the water fill spout and press it in. If you can hear the sound then all you need to do now is wait. continue to hold the button until water comes out. dispose of the first few glasses of water and the first few drops of ice. this will allow the system to be flushed of all contaminants. Note that when an ice maker is new or not used much it will not make very fast. it usually takes about 24 hours to make the first drop. Hope this helps and good luck.

I just bought a used kenmore elite side by side refrigerator and hooked up the water line to the back of the fridge. My question is where does the long water line the goes to the fridge and comes back...


Where you hook the house water line is to the water inlet valve which is a one in two out solonoid controlled valve. One side goes to the water dispenser in the door and the other hooks to the ice maker connection.

So I suspect the long water line you are talking about has had the lines switched at the valve and needs reversed. The long line probably goes up the back of the unit and connects to the ice maker. The one for the water dispenser should hook to the water chiller resevoir and then to the water dispenser.

Ice maker is not working


If I understand the problem correctly, it sounds like there is ice frozen in the tube that the water flows through just before it comes into the ice maker. If this is the case, I have the solution.

This problem is caused from a bad water valve. The water line that connects to your refrigerator hooks up directly into your water valve. The way it works is this. The water valve keeps the water pressure to OFF. Whenever your ice maker needs water it simply asks the valve to open and it does. The problem is this. The valve has malfunctioned and isn't totally shutting off anymore. This lets a tiny bit of water through. This water slowly makes its way up the water line into the freezer where it freezes in your tube :) You just need a water valve! With a model number I can give you an average price. Chances are it will run anywhere from $50 - $100. Just depends on where you get it. This is also a very easy thing to change!

GE PSS25MGMA Crushed ice only, nothing else will select on panel.


Yes , replace the main board . Part number WR55X10656 . There is only partial communication between the main board and the dispensor board . This main board , is behind the 8 " X 10 " panel , on the back of the refrig . Do not replace the dispensor board . I have never come across a bad dispensor board yet . Always a first time though .

Hooked up waterline to side by side frigiedaire,


Your inlet tube that goes to the icemaker may be frozen. To Check: Shut off water supply to Fridge, disconnect the water line that goes to the icemaker at top back. Use a flexible item to insert in the water line connection. I used a zip tie. If the flexible item won't all the through to the ice maker, the line is frozen. Thaw out the tube from inside the freezer with a hair dryer. Re-connect everything, you now have ice . . . Solution #2: You may have to replace your "Water Inlet Valve" located at bottom right rear of Fridge. Easy to do, just follow the color codes, be sure and shut off the water.

The ice maker doesnt work, and in the day several times appears water in the floor, in the side of the door of the ice maker


Uplug refrigerator and remove the ice maker so we can look at the tube that comes into the back of the ice maker. It maybe the ice maker is calling for water but ice or a crack in the tube that delivers the water is being deverted to inside the freezer area. Also look behind the fresh food compartment door and see if you can send me the model number so I will be able to go over the correct model. Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze
