Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

Amana side by side, SXD27q2w, Ice maker tube, located in the freezer keeps freezing. I have 45psi on the water. I think it may be the solenoid, It is almost like it is letting water pass very slowly a drop at a time, and they are not leaving the trough fill tube, they freeze keep building ice in the tube and freeze solid. I have replaced hoses, new fittings, I am lost. Could the solenoid be letting water pass at a rate that would cause this. I just got an idea gonna try it, but if anyone can help. thank you.

SOURCE: ice maker tube freezing up

  • change the water valve on the back of the machine.
  •  the water valve is slowly leaking water up to the icemaker where it freezes and builds up ice, blocking the water flow.

Hi Jan, the problem is a bad ice maker water valve. Pull the refrigerator out and look for the plastic water line that's going to the tube that's freezing. Follow that tube to the faulty water valve. The problem is, its leaking water slowly to the ice maker and it freezes up . Easy fix : Good luck

all is normal with the defrost heater getting red hot.

as far as the inlet tube freezing, you most likely need a new water inlet valve. it may not be closing all the way and water is slowly dripping into the icemaker and freezing up right away. a new valve should fix your issue. here is the part that you need. http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-TFH27PRSA-%3d%3di1032629&PartID=1032629

Ice maker is freezing up


The solenoid valve can leak slightly to make your problem. To check it, undo the tube from the solenoid to the freezer with the solenoid unplugged, and the water pressure on. Any leakage is bad, replace it.

Automatic ice maker doesn't fill with water


Probably the double water inlet solenoid valve on the back of the cabinet (one for the water and one for the ice, one component). Or a blockage in the water supply line, and even on one occassion the pipe feeding the ice machine was not in situ and water runs down the back of the freezer. Easiest way to check is to locate this part (back RHS) and switch the ice and water over and see if this has an impact. If you are not a practical person do not touch the back section (compressor side). Hope this helps.

Ice maker freezing up


If it is only the fill tube that is freezing up, or getting full of ice, than your water valve is leaking (letting drops of water thru to your ice maker and filling the icemaker fill tube up and freezing). If this is the case, replace the dual water valve (part # 1071263) located in the back of the refrigerator, just follow the water line from your wall into the refrigerator. Make sure you turn off the water to the refrigerator and also unplug it. The dual water valve is the one that has two water lines, one going to the icemaker and one going to the water dispenser. On this model, I think you only have one water valve. On some you have two, the primary water valve and a secondary water valve (the dual valve). If this is your case, I would highly recommend you replace both. As far as the Refrigerator side freezing things up, I think that is a whole different issue. Please post back.
