Ice making problem

Our ice maker is making ice but it becomes one big block in the tray. I think there must be a water drip, so that after the ice is made and water is dripping over it then it freezes and thus becomes one unmanageable block.

SOURCE: amana ice make problem

there is a screw adjustment that accounts for the variations in water pressure among various installations. Without one, problems such as yours will be widespread. Pry open the plastic cover over the icemaker. Look for a screw that has markings and/or arrows near it. I believe that turning the screw counterclockwise will decrease the amount of water allowed in. Experiment with each turn direction as necessary. You should see the amount of water fill with a flashlight. A proper fill should be about 3/4 to 7/8 filled. Never fill 100%. The cube ejectors may break then.

SOURCE: ice maker drips water

In most of theses cases the dripping is caused by the molding in the ice maker cracking and the water is wicked out. On some ice makers you can replace the complete molding but its usually easier to just replace the ice maker.

SOURCE: ice maker is dripping water into the ice tub and

Your ice maker inlet valve has gone bad.

Turn the ice maker off by lifting the wire that s on the side of the ice maker up until you feel it click then it should stay in the up position. This is off. Do not use your ice dispenser as it can be damaged by the clumped ice and leave the ice maker off as well until you replace that valve. The part number you need is 67005154.

To replace the valve you will need to trace your water line from the valve to the nearest cutoff. Turn the water supply valve off. You will also need a towel to catch the water that comes out of the lines and you will need to UNPLUG THE REFRIGERATOR so you don't get shocked. Then replace the valve. Turn the water on and look carefully for a leak. What I do is wipe my fingertip around all the joints a few times drying them each time til I get a few dry wipes. Turn the ice maker on and again look for leaks after the water cycles in. If all the joints are dry after you should be good to go.

Thanks for asking.

SOURCE: Ice Maker drips water at head end

There is a small set screw that you can adjust to control the inlet valve. Take off the front cover and look for the adjusting screw on the side panel. It usually has arrows indicating it if for adjusting. There is a picture here:

Possibly the water control valve is leaking when shut off, and water constantly drips into the ice tray fill tube. When this happens, the fill tube becomes clogged with ice, and the ice tray does not fill. The ice tray will cycle often, because there is no water in the tray, but will remain empty. If this is the case, the water control valve at the bottom rear of the refrigerator will have to be replaced.

What is the problem when water drips constantly from the ice maker into the ice tray, making one big block of ice

This sounds like the automatic water valve is not shutting off completely. It may be due to something in the valve that is keeping the it partially open. You might could take it off and clean it out. Or replace it with a new one.

My ice maker is making ice but very slowly. I have checked the water line to make sure water is flowing and that the line at the ice maker is not blocked in any way. Could it be a faulty selenoid switch?

for how long very slowly?in every 2 hour the water become ice but the ice produce in your ice maker is maximum of 15 pcs small cubes,its means depend on the tray if is big or small. if you use your ice in every 30minute or your family is using an ice by 1bottle its means the ice produce is not enougth for your family.and the tray becomes empty after you use at the same time. but if the unit is hard to make an ice or frozen your frezer side its the unit is have a problem but is not to easy to repair by if your self coz the part inside is hard to remove.

Ice maker does not make ice anymore. appears the tray is not filling with water. door water dispenser is still working

Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. It’s on the back where the water supply comes in. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

If it overfills and drips, look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water.

If it continuously drips, replace the water inlet valve on the back where the house water supply comes in.

Ice maker drips water into ice tray

Probably the solenoid valve leaks(electric valve that opens when the ice maker calls for water) and overflood the ice maker,the only way to fix this is replacing the solenoid.

I have the exact same problem, curious if you have any answer...

If the ice melts in the ice maker I think something strange is going on with the heating element below the ice maker. It comes on only for a few seconds before the ice drops. And is used to loosen the ice. But if water continues to flow from the water control valve while the ice maker is full it has no where to go but into the freezer and refreeze. Sometimes the water control valves have trash buildup inside the valve and will not shut and allows the water to continue to flow. About the only way to solve that is replace the water control valve and place a pre-filter in the line before the water reaches the valve. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Shelf kitchenaid Refrigerator's ice maker leaking water

Turn off the water line that goes to the refrigerator and see if still leaking if not the problem is with the solenoid valve ,which is an electric valve that opens only when the ice maker calls for water and is located at the back of the fridge in the bottom behind the cover(if your refrigerator has water and ice dispenser ,Its called dual valve). And if leaks when you turn on the water ,this part has to be replaced .But if leaks and overflow the ice maker only when it calls for water the problem is in the ice maker and to repair it will cost almost as a new one .

Does anyone know how to fix an ice maker?

When the ice maker calls for water it pours for about 7 seconds if more will overflow and drips into tray , but the most common problem is the dual valve that leaks even after ice maker called for water (this valve is located in the back of the fridge at the bottom where the water line is hooked up.)

Ice maker is making ice cubes AND pouring water

the apparatus that distributes the water into the tray had been knocked out of balance when taking the tray out. We pulled the ice maker and replaced the apparatus back in it's proper location .
