  • rmeredith Apr 21, 2009

    The ice maker does not make ice. I have used a hair dryer on the black tube that fills the ice maker in the past, and that worked, but I'm not having any success now. There is no water in the ice maker and I don't know why. Anyone help? Thanks.

The water control valve can get clogged or fail. Follow the line from the supply( did you check for filters there?) to the bottom of the fridge. The valve may be just like the one on a washing machine. It has a wire filter in it too. Test it for flow, unhook the pipe to the ice maker and see if water comes out of it when it is energised. I made a test energiser out of a power cord with the same connectors that the valve has.

My ice maker isn't getting water in to make ice. I can manually pour water into the maker, let it freeze, and get the maker to get the ice out, but no water comes in. GE model GSHS5KGX. Side by side...


Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects theb you need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking same part needs replaced.The water valve at the bottom rear of fridge.
Thank you for using fixya

Ice-maker has stopped working. Mod. ED25LFXHT02 Ser. SL0435597


Has it stopped because it ain't gettin water? Or has it quit because of internal failure of some sort. A nice thing to know is just how ice makers work. The ice maker does all the thinking. It calls for water and it knows when to take a dump. Nothing else in the ice box makes the ice maker do what it do. If you have no ice in the mold add some H2O to it and see if it indeed kicks out some ice. If it does then you needs ta look at replacing the water valve and even the water filter (I would). If you have ice in the mold but none in the bucket then that could be the ice mild thermostat. An easy fix. I have repair photos,video,and manual: HERE

Water in door works but ice maker quit .its a roper side by side mod#rs25aqxfnoo ser#sg1235753


That ice box uses a dual solenoid dual mechanical valve and operates the water on one side and ice maker on the other. The solenoid for the icemaker (which has a smaller water line) might be open or the mechanicals inside may be fouled with sand and sediment or lime deposits. If that checks out then the thing that powers that water valve is the ice maker itsel. So if your water valve is good then your ice maker is bad most likely. I have a page which shows repair photos and manual: HERE

Same thing happened to me. I unplugged the refrigerator, plugged it back in and it worked. I guess the computer system reset itself. Easy fix.

Ice Maker Not Making Ice


There is no pump per say.. the water pressure is all that fills the ice maker and provides water to the drinking dispensor. The solenoids are also different, one activates for ice maker and the other for drinking water. The fastest way to check water flow is to swap the wires on the solenoids so the drinking water "power" will now power the ice fill solenoid. Once the plugs are swapped and you press the drinking water lever the ice maker should pour water out the fill tube. If that works then you know the solenoid, tube, etc. are all fine. I'd suspect then that the ice maker fill solenoid isn't getting power when it is suppose to fill. Let me know what this test result is.
