My 9 month side by side refrigerator

It has been having problems. It went from making great and a lot of ice, to hollow ice and now none. I tried turning the setting up, down mid=-way, everything. I called Engles in Fort Smith, arkansas and they said to call whirlpool; but did not know the phone #..Didn't whirlpool buy out Maytag? I called several repair men and they said they have never completed fixing a maytag ice maker.. Help. Sherry (wilmoth) nickname)

Re: my 9 month side by side refrigerator

Hollow ice would suggest poor water flow due to a blocked water filter, check the water flow before and after the filter, make sure you flush the water line out before fitting a new filter. Cheers Colin

Frigidaire side by side with ice maker .. ice maker jams and quits making ice

Hollow ice cubes are a result of lack of water to ice maker. This can be caused by lack of water pressure (clogged filter, bad water valve, obstructed fill tube, etc..) you will need to find the cause to correct this hollow ice cube issue. The ice maker should take on 5.5 oz of water when it cycles (2/3 cup). Mot of the time its a water supply issue and the line could be kinked behind the unit as it was rolled back into place.

Good Luck

Hollow ice is a sign of not enough water going into tray. Replace the water inlet valve or the fill and shut-off valve for problems with both parts. Hollow ice cubes usually indicate a low water problem. This is generally the result of an excess buildup of calcium and other deposits.Replace the self-piercing shut-off valve with a drill-type shut-off valve.Drill a 1/4-inch hole into the pipe and installs the shut-off valve the same way you would have installed the self-piercing valve.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Admiral Refrigerator makes hollow ice

Hollow ice cubes are due to low water pressure to the fridge. Water thru the door should have good pressure behind it. This is a good indicator of water pressure. Should be able to fill a glass quickly. Causes for low pressure are self-piercing saddle valves on the water line (switch to drill type (1/4") valve) or reverse osmosis system or filtering system on water line to the fridge. R.O. systems should not be used. Increase water pressure and that will fix the hollow cubes. The loud noise may be the sound of the water valve on the fridge when it is acivated. This sound is normal and some are louder than others.

Icemaker - hollow or solid ice, take your pic!

check behind the bottom front panel, mine has instructions for changing the water flow. If the instructions aren't there try your manual or an online one.

Hollow Ice- Slow Ice!!

Hollow ice is a dead give away that there is not enough water filling the trays. Check that the line isn't pinched from pushing the unit back in place, etc. Also check any filters or filter screens in the water line to the ice maker.
