Water is sent to the ice maker at the same time that the front

We noticed that water is sent to the ice maker when I try to get water fron the front dispenser. A tech came in and He wanted to replace the pump but he finally checked it and figured out that the pump is good. Please advise any other ideas.

Hi, I thought I sent you a response but I see it's still on so I'll try again. It sounds to me like the wires have be reversed on the two inlet valves. When the ice maker cycles, do you get water through the door?
If I can assist further, please let me know.

Thanks
Vic

Water flow tube on ice maker leaking by causing ice blockage


When the ice maker calls for water, the valve sends water to the ice maker in the appropriate amount and then shuts off, sending no more water until the ice maker calls for it again. If the water fill line is freezing up, this will cause a leak the next time the ice maker calls for water. The water has to go somewhere. The problem is more than likely the the water valve. It is not shutting off completely and it is allowing a small trickle of water to be constantly sent to the ice maker. This causes the fill line to freeze up and clog. Replace the water valve and defrost the water fill line and solve the problem.

The water dispenser is not putting out water and ice maker is not making ice. The fridge frequently cycles like it is trying to send out water.

Model ed22dqxaw10 - water enters the ice maker


If the water enters as if it were on a timed basis it would be clear that your ice maker either needs rebuilt or replaced. All signals are sent to the water control valve from the ice maker. The ice maker if working properly will begin its cycle when the thermostat tells the icemaker to begin by heating the elements below the ice maker to warm slightly to loosen the ice from their ice slots. After that any confusion would be in the front of the ice maker to tell the water to come on before the ice maker emptys its ice and begins a 7 second refill of water. If you would like to rebuild your ice maker click HERE and enter your model number ED22DQXAW10 then click on photo 11 ice maker on left of screen. If you would prefer a Replacement Icemaker Click Here=> P/N: 4317943 Try disconnecting the ice maker side of your dual water dispenser to insure that it is not the problem. Dual water control valve part number Click Here=> P/N: 2188542 Like to know if the problem has been located and resolved or if you would like to continue with my assistance contact => Sea Breeze just above the Fixya Tech Support Box on right.

The water solinoid is not sending water to my ice tray


The 2 "problems" are most likely only 1 problem. The door frame has a heater that keeps water from condensing on the frame tween the freezer and refrigerator sections. It should be warm but not so warm that it is uncomfortable to keep your hand on it.

Now your saying verry little ice at best? Do you notice ice in the bin that the refrigerator has made? You can try switching the wires on the water solonid on the back of the fridge then push in the button on the water delivery switch (like filling a glass) if the valve is working the water should flow on into the ice maker and you can feel it or see it being in the ice maker. then you know the problem is, or is not in the water valve. If you leave it connected this way for an extended time like 4 to 6 hours you should notice a mess comming out of the water delivery spout in the front. This will be because the ice maker is comming around and asking for water to come into the ice maker. However because you have switched the wires on the valve it comes out the door. If you dont get any water out the door the Ice maker isthe most likely suspect but it could also be the wiring going to the valve.

If this helps you find the next step in solving your trouble please rate me has high as you can and thank you for using fixya.

Kenmore Refrigerator stopped dispensing water


Look up through the ice despencer on the front door of the freezer. Is the flapper door open? If so it needs to be fixed. If its not then try leaving the freezer door open for 3+ hours to defrost the frozen line in the door. If that doesnt work, the water valve must be changed.(located behind fridge, take off back cord board panel at bottom, the valve is blue)... GOODLUCK!

Ice maker stopped working


pull the front cover off of the icemaker and see if the drive gear is broken (there are 2 tabs in the center of the gear make sure these arent twisted or broken as well) if so replace the module on the fron of the icemaker. if that checks fine check for frozen fill line..
