    ok, just to clarify this post. you are getting water flow through the wall outlet faucets and the feed to the refrigerator water valve assembly isn't opening and allowing the flow to transfer to the ice maker and the water dispenser as well, correct?

Tryusing an hairdryer or defrosting the unit completely , this often getrid of blockage caused by frozen lines fixing the problem.

The water lines can also be unblocked from dirt using a thin flexible shaft. This after defrosting.

If all that does not fix the problem, then you may need to replace thewater valve, the icemaker solenoid, or the whole icemaker assembly.

Why has my American-style fridge freezer stopped making ice?


Hello Michael;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You did not provide a model number so I will help you as best I can. The fact that your water dispenser works narrows it down.

Here are the causes for your icemaker not to fill:

1.) In the back of your refrigerator there is a solenoid valve for your ice maker and another for your water dispenser. The solenoid valve for your icemaker has the smaller plastic tubing that runs up the back of your refrigerator to the top. With the unit unplugged, remove the bottom back cover. remove the two connectors on the solenoid valve. Using a multi-meter, set the meter to the lowest Ohms. Place one meter lead on one of the solenoid metal contacts and the other lead metal contact. If the solenoid is good the meter will read; '0'.

Ice makers have control modules. The control module tells the water solenoid valve to open and for how long to fill the ice cube mold. Then a temperature sensor will tell the control module when the ice cubes are frozen. The control module will, if the ice maker is cast steel - will tell the heater to turn on for a period of time, and then tell the fingers to rotate to discharge the cubes, or if it is a flex mold, to flex. Then the cycle repeats.

The only one ice maker that is repairable is the one with the cast steel mold. The others are just throw-a-ways.

So, if your ice maker solenoid valve checks out, replace your ice maker. Do not buy it locally. You can save 40% or more if you buy over the internet

JennAir JSD2789GES ice maker /water dispenser


if the water is stored in a container matrix in the fridge (to cool it down b4 dispensing) it may have frozen up. best give the unit a complete defrost to see if this is occuring, if so the thermistors may be faulty.

GE Side by Side Refrigerator model GSS25jfpa cc. No water to icemaker. Replaced the ice maker and the dual solenoid water valves. Still no water to ice maker? Water to door works fine.


if you can reverse the solenoid valve wire connections,then use the door water fill to activate this valve,but not long as it will overfill the icemaker,this will certify that theres water getting up to the icemaker,then it could be the maker itself not activating the icemakers water valve assy to fill the maker

Ice-maker does not work. water valve seems to be working.


There are 3 things that can prevent an ice maker from not working.
1- Temperature of freezzer- Temp must be below 6 degrees on most ice makers.
2- Water inlet valve- Depending on how your ice maker cycles it calls for water for 7.2 seconds. If you have ice and water though the door you have a dual valve and the ice maker selinoid ine the inlet may be bad. Also make sure water is getting to valve. Just because water is coming through the door does not mean water is entering fridge. There is a reservoir in fringe that holds around 3 gallons of water that can still make water come out the door without water entering fridge.
3- Faulty Ice maker- over time the winding and other components can get worn out and fail.

First check the temperature in the freezer.
Next check the inlet valve. To do this you need to remove the hose going from the inlet valve to ice maker and switch with the hose leading to door. Push the actuator in the door to call for water and see if water enters the ice maker. If it does inlet is good. Replace Icemaker. If not replace inlet valve. There may be a problem with the icemaker still but wont know until inlet is fixed.

If you have anymore problems or you need further assistance please feel free to contact

Ice maker not producing any ice.


Pour about 1/2 cup of water into icemaker . Squeeze the black fill tub which is above the icemaker cup . If ice apears to be in it , this indicates that the weter valve is not completely closing , letting a drip ocasionally go thru and freezing inside the tube , ( water valve bad ) . that will be a different solution . If the icemaker dumps the cubes after freezing . and black tube is not frozen , replace the water inlet valve . If the icemaker does not dump the ice after frozen , replace the icemaker ( only 1 screw holds the icemaker in , located on rear portion on right , faceing down . Also check the icemaker rake , which should be about the 2:30 position . To thaw out the black tube (which runs thru the top of the refrig ) a 1/4 push on connector will be needed . Remove the icemaker and use a hairdryer aimed up into the hole . Cut the tubing to the fill tub behind the fridge about 9 inches from where it enters the top of the fridge . This will let warm air inside the top fill line to help thaw . Ocassionally blow thru the 9 inch tube until you can blow thru it . May take a day or 2 , depending how frozen the line is . Once air will go thru , install the push on connector to couple the cut lines back togather .

The blinking red light on the right side , is the receiver for the electric eye for cutting off the icemaker when the door bin is full , This blinking is normal . 2 blinks ...pause...2 blinks..etc .

Do not replace the filter if water flow is good thru the dispensor .

Need to change out the the valve on the bottom of the unit. TURN OFF THE WATER. Remove the bottom grill. Disconnect water lines from solenoid valve. You can get spare parts at www.automaticappliance.net.

No water for ice maker or at door


  1. Water comes from water pipe, usually with a shut off valve (open??).
  2. Fridge has a small filter (for sand etc.) at inlet. (not clogged??)
  3. Water travels to solenoid valve, and waits for request. (do you hear it click when water requested??)
  4. Water usually goes to a fine filter..(these fail (plug) quite regularly).
  5. Water goes through storage in back of cool section (Inside fridge- is it full of water?).
  6. Water goes to ice maker (door) on fill request.
  7. For Ice maker:
  8. ?? Is the power switch "on" (to icemaker)??
  9. ?? Is the full / stop filling paddle/bar up?
  10. ...ask me more questions
  11. In your case the solenoid valve or more commonly the filter need to be replaced

Amana ice-maker


Very curious. When you say the tube to the ice maker was disconnected I am unsure as to which tube you are refering to. However hopefully a few pointers might help a damsel. Most units have the water supply enter into the cabinet through a two way water solenoid valve (i.e. one for chilled water one for the ice maker). It then normally enters the top of the freezer section for the ice maker. It then drops down inside the freezer section to the icemaker module. Therefore the only control over the water for the icemaker is the solenoid valve which is controlled by the icemaker "module". A trick is to switch the control at the solenoid valve so that you can use the chilled water dispenser to check if the water valve for the icemaker is working. If it is then you probably have a problem with the icemaker module or the temperature in the freezer section (which you would probably have noticed if that was the case). If you have a problem with the module then you normally have to replace the module as they dont like supplying spares for modules.
Anyway hope this is of some help and good luck.

ps model is normally near the salad drawer or top of the fridge section dependent on brand.
