Ice not forming in ice tray


Hi - there are several problems that can cause this - but ultimately, if your freezer is keeping frozen foods frozen, the problem is lack of water flow.

Most automatic ice makers work on a timer. At a regular interval, if the ice maker arm is down to signal a "not full" ice bin, the heater on the bottom of the ice form turns on to break the bond between the ice and the mold. After a short time, the wiper linkage turns to allow the wipers push the individual cubes out of the mold and fall into the bin. After that, the solenoid on the water line is energized that will allow the water to flow to the ice maker to fill the mold, and then shuts off.

The water may pass through the filter inside your fridge (if equipped) and the filter may be clogged (if you can dispense water from your fridge and it works - this not likely to be the problem). Some fridges require a filter to be present - other will work without a filter - but none will work with a clogged (or frozen) filter. Make sure the fresh food compartment of the fridge is not freezing the filter.

Most of the ice maker functions are silent - except for the sounds of the ice dropping into the bin, and in some cases, the "snapping" or "clicking" of the water solenoid turning on and off (coupled with the sound of water running).

See if you can hear this happening. If you do, the problem could the either the flexible water line or the point of the water line attachment to the cold water pipe in the house. If you moved the fridge out for any reason, it is possible that the water line has been kinked or crushed when the fridge was moved back into position. If it has been undisturbed, it may be related to the valve that supplies water to the fridge. Sometimes, a clamp-on pipe piercing valve is used to connect the smaller fridge water line to the cold water pipe in the house. It is not unusual for these to give trouble after several years - particularly in areas with "hard" water. It may be worthwhile to replace this if it has been installed for some time.

Lastly, it may be the ice maker itself. It has heaters, switches and motors - any of which can fail and cause trouble. You could pour water into the the maker with a watering can or similar and let it make ice as normal. If ice is never dropped into the bin, then something on or cabling to the maker itself has failed and will likely require professional service or replacement as an assembly.

These should get you going and may pinpoint the issue - good luck!

The only thing I can recommend that you can do possibly save yourself some money is go to any local appliance repair shop an see if they are parting out a refrigerator. There is yet one other option and that is to call a local refrigerator recylcling place and see if you can obtain the fitting there.

Other than that the service person is going to order the NEW part thatis $55.74 + shipping from Sears.
The current available part number is: 4388152 and is called Nozzle Tube Kit.
This is the best I can do for you.

1996 Frigidaire Fridge/Freezer.... The fridge is leaking underneath suddenly, soaking a full sized towel every 2 hours. The water rung out of the towels is slightly brownish in color. No leaks can be...


I'd check the water supply line to the fridge. If kinked of damaged, may be the source of the leak (make sure that the the connection point to the building's cold water pipe isn't leaking - and simply running down the supply line to the fridge!)

Of course, it could be a cracked solenoid valve (turns water on and off when the ice maker calls for water for ice), loose or broken clamp, broken filter (if equipped), etc. All these connection points in the water supply lines should be visible.

Unplug the fridge as soon as you can reach it before working on a wet floor with live electricity.

Please rate my reply if it was helpful - good luck!

How do I replace the water line in the door?


Hello,

Find your route to the water line. Drill a hole in the floor behind the refrigerator and thread the copper tubing into the basement. Go to the basement and find the main water line and pull the copper tubing to it.

Step 2
Attach pipe to refrigerator. Go back up to the kitchen and attach the end of the copper tubing to the water pipe of the refrigerator. You can use a nut and ferrule to connect the tube to the fridge. Make sure to leave a little bit of copper tubing coiled behind the fridge so as to not disconnect the tubing when moving the fridge.

Step 3
Turn off the water. With the fridge all hooked up, go back to the basement and turn off the water. Find the cold water pipe and drill a 1/4-inch hole to accommodate the copper tubing.

Step 4
Attach valve to pipe. You need to attach the water valve to the main pipe. This allows you to control the flow of water to the refrigerator. Make sure you have a gasket to seal between the valve and main water pipe.

Step 5
Connect the copper tubing. With the valve connected to the main water pipe, connect the copper tubing using a clamp. This should be everything you need. Turn on the main water and you should be able to get a glass of water, but it will take an hour or two for the ice cubes to freeze.

Take care..

Ice maker stopped making ice yesterday. I changed the water filter, but it still hasn't done anything There are no ice cubes jammed.


the icemaker line from the basement to the fridge may be bad, clogged or the little fitting they put on the water pipe to connect the plastic line to your fridge could have sentiment in it, clogging the water. Ice Maker needs a certain amount of pressure in line to work properly!

Ice maker not working


Check to make sure the water line is properly hooked up and on (this would run from the general area of the ice maker out the back of your fridge, down, and through a pipe into the floor or wall. If this is not hooked up or present, your ice maker has no way to get water) if the water is on at the fridge, make sure it's on where the pipe is connected to the water line is as well.
Second, check to see if the "full" bar is in the proper position. This should be somewhere in front of where the ice dispenses, if it is in one position and it's not working, move it to the other position.
If these general solutions do not work, please respond with your make and model and any other information on the malfunction you can give us!
Thanks for using FixYa!

Ge fridge- water dispenser in door wont work yet ice maker does.


There are a few reasons for this. Most common, is the water filter. After a period of time(literage usage) the filter eventually blocks up.Flow will not continue until a new one is installed. On occasion, the water line in the freezer ices up, but doesn't often happen. If so, you will need to defrost freezer until pipe is no longer iced up(set freezer to about -20 degrees celsius).or very possible, water solenoid at the back of the fridge has gone faulty.You will need help with this check,There will be 2 valves. Very possibly it will be the RHS one at the back. Switch water supply off at the back then go to the water solenoids at the back of the fridge.and disconnect the one pipe on the solenoid that leads into the fridge. Open fridge water tap again and ask member to quickly press water dispenser lever.Note if water squirts out for that brief period.. If not, reconnect pipe again then do the same disconnection to the second solenoid. If no water comes out then,(make sure water is open), then the water valve needs to be replaced.

How to hook up Ice & Water dispenser on freezer door


The water valve is on the back of the refrigerator. The water line connects directly to that valve. If there is no line available then you will need to run one from a cold water line in the plumbing using a drill type (1/4") saddle valve on that pipe. Hope this helps. If you need more instruction let me know!
