    Model FRT24XHA. turns out, after taking the unit completely out and removing the face plate, the female portion of part #16, where screw #24 goes thru cycle arm part #25, had broken off in the back plate(#16) inside. I replaced it with Gorilla Glue, let it dry and put it back together. seems to be working now. Now if I could get it to make ice faster, and get the water coming out dispenser to be colder, it would be the perfect fridge. Any ideas there?

    KitchenAid Superba KSRS27QFBL00 - Manufactured in 11/97 ON, Canada

    It was in the house and it works fine, except that a couple months ago stopped produce ice. Water flows in the door dispenser and I have confirmed the tube to icemaker is not frozzed inside.

    If I fill in with water I have the ice after ~2hs. Instead of automatic, now it is manual!!! I have read some results about the valve in the bottom, but before start dismantle it I would like to know why it would work for the water in the front door and not for the icemaker?

First, are you sure the ice maker is cycling and then no water?  If it cycles and no water check to see if the fill tube to the icemaker is frozen.  Also, what is the complete model # on the sticker inside the fridge?  Let me know so I can help.

How do i fix ice maker


Could be 2 different problems. Inlet water valve is a dual valve (2 halves). 1 half feeds water to the door dispenser, the other half fills the icemaker. The icemaker half could be bad or blocked up with sediment causing a no fill situation. 2nd problem could be the icemaker itself which sends power to the inlet valve when it needs filled. Usually the inlet valve fails first but you need to test and see.

Frigidaire gallery side by side won't send water to ice maker tray, but will to water dispenser


Hello Jim czyryca - From what you are describing if the ice maker is not making ice but is dispensing water, sounds like the refrigerator has a frozen water line, faulty ice maker valve or bad component that sends power to the ice maker valve when needed. The ice maker cycles internally to call for water so I strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately to assist with the repairs.

I purchased a new whirlpool conquest and have had on for two days. i have water coming out of the water dispenser but still no ice production. There is no water in the chute leading to the ice maker. ...


Maybe it won't call for water until it goes through the cycle. Try putting water in the ice mold and see if it starts working when it freezes and dumps the ice. Make sure the water line is open by swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then the water dispenser will send water to the ice maker and you'll know the valve and line works.

Kenmore coldspot water dispenser stopped working. Ice maker works. What could be possibly wrong?


On the rear of your refrigerator there is a dual water control valve. One side for ice maker and one side for water dispenser. I believe your side for the water dispenser has failed and they come as a set. Send the Kenmore model number and I will find you one. The number will look like this, 326.256489 for example only. Found near the bottom of the fresh food section door. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Ice maker not working on a samsung rf265aabp. water to selenoid no power to selenoid.


You won't have power to the solenoid till the ice maker dumps ice and sends signal requesting water. It only last for about 7 seconds.
Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. 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. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

Ice maker won't send water to unit. Solenoid is good


Make sure the fill tube where the water goes into the ice mold is not full of ice. Your old valve may have been leaking and it will freeze in the fill tube. Other than than maybe start the ice maker working by filling it with water and see if it dumps and refills.
You can swap the wires on the inlet valves and try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker letting you know the valve works and the line is clear.

No water to ice maker but there is to the water dispenser in the door. Whirlpool model ED22PQ


This could be two reasons. The water control valve that sends water to the ice maker or the ice maker is not sending the signal to the water control valve to send water to ice maker There are 2 valves on back of your refrigerator one for ice and the other is for the dispenser. If ice maker is empty then the signal should be sent to back control valve and 120 volts should open the valve for about 4 seconds. If that valve is bad nothing will happen.You can test the ice maker by filling with tap water and if it cycles until time to refill and no water fills the tray then I think the water control valves need replaced.
