Water is spraying from ice maker


This seems to be a popular problem. First I would unplug the fridge and plug it back in, sometimes it will reset the control and the solonoid for the water fill will stop.v if it does not stop that may be the water fill timer contacts are fused shut which means you need a new control board. I would also check the water basin for a float or water sensing probe. If they are dirty or damaged then it will not sense the water level and keep filling. I would also check the water fill valve to make sure it is not stuck open. If it is the board it might be easier to shut the water off and buy ice, they can be pricey. Good luck

There isnt any water getting thru to the icemaker. i changed the watervalve and still no water i cannot locate the water filter even tho i removed the bottom grill, water is still getting to the water...


if you put a new water valve on the fridge then you either have a bad ice maker or the line is frozen where the water fills the ice maker,a bad water valve will make the line freeze,water keeps dripping through the valve and freezes the fill line behind the ice maker cup,you can remove the ice maker and check the fill line,if it's frozen get a hair dryer,shut down the fridge or unplug it and blow the hot air into the fill line until the ice melts,then get a piece of wire and after you reinstall the ice maker pop off the cover to the ice maker and jump it out with the wire,stick it in the t and h for 15 seconds and pull it out,if the ice maker is good it will start turning and when the arms get at like 11 oclock it should fill,also you can jump out the fill valve from the ice maker,stick it in v and L and if water fills the ice maker you know you have a bad ice maker if the fill line isn't frozen.hope this helps.next time you need help send the model number,on your machine look in the fridge section on the right hand wall up near the ceiling to find it,if it's older look down near the bottom hinge on the fridge door and you'll see a tag with the model number.good luck

Ice maker turns, but no water is filing the tray


most likely the water valve is bad or the fill line that's inside the freezer behind the ice maker cup could be frozen,next time send the brand name and model number,but most likely you have a bad water valve on the back of the machine,or no water is going to the fridge.you can shut off the valve,disconnect the feed line going to the fridge,get a bucket,stick the line in the bucket and turn the water back on,this way you know water is going to the fridge and also you'll be cleaning out the line,usually sediment from the water line gets into the valve so it's a good idea to flush the line before you change out the valve.you say the ice maker turns so the only other thing left is the valve.good luck with your machine

My daughters TOTO toilet kepted running so she turned off the supply line before she went to bed. when she woke up the next moring and turned the water back on, now the tank won't refill. How do I know...


There could be several reasons why it won't refill. It could be the fill valve, which can be replaced with a standard fill valve located at any hardware store. The more likely reason is the stem inside the shut-off of the toilet has broken off inside the valve. This is very common when a valve is older and usually doesn't get shutoff. If this is the case, a new shut-off valve must be soldered on.

Our automatic ice maker will not quit dripping in the freezer. It keeps clogging the ice maker with icicles and large blocks of ice. Essentially, it keeps "freezing over." We have defrosted it...


if it keeps filling and overflowing you have a bad water valve on the back of the fridge.the part number is WR57X10027 and the valve is around 75 dollars.first thing lift the arm or shut off the ice maker so it won't leak anymore,you're missing a few letters off of the model number so when you call your parts store give them the full model number,open the fridge door,look up on the right hand side wall up near the ceiling and give them the model number to make sure you get the correct valve,shut off the water supply to the fridge,then have the new valve next to the old valve when you remove a water line from the old valve just connect it to the new valve,do this until everything is changed out and the new valve is in place,turn on the water supply and you can check the ice maker to make sure it doesn't overflow.you can manually start the ice maker by grabbing the plastic arms of the ice maker and pull them forwards slowly until the arms start to advance on their own,you'll hear the water valve fill the ice maker and then you can watch it fill to see if the water is filling it correctly and i'm sure you'll be fine with the new water valve installed

I installed brand new fluidmaster and it would not shut off even though the flowter are all the way up. why it would not shut down?


If the fill valve will not turn off. There may be debris at seal. The seal in the top of valve may be damaged.

Shut water off and the top will come off.

I recently installed new fluidmaster fill valve. Now when i try and turn valve from wall on, the water flow from valve shuts off before i can get valve all the way on. Even if i turn it on slow it will...


The top of the fill valve should be removed, and then turn the water on at the stop. (wall valve). Be sure to place a bowl, or even your hand over the top of the valve as water will flow out the top. This should free any debris that got into the fill valve when it was installed. You should only need to do this for 2 to 3 seconds to free the blockage. If this does not work, I would conclude that the fill valve is defective. Hope this helps.

Brand new ice maker, water fill to tray will not shut off


The new ice maker should tell the dual water valve on rear of refrigerator to turn on if the tray makes a complete cycle. So the new ice maker is defective or the water valve on back is stuck open that leads up to the ice maker. Unplug the wires to the water control valve on back of the refrigerator and then turn the ice maker on. If the water continues to flow I recommend replacing the water valve. If the water stops coming to the ice maker I recommend returning the new ice maker. You only need to unplug the side of the water control valve leading to the ice make. I also recommend a pre-filter for the incoming water before the water control valve. Makes the water and ice better and keeps trash from damaging the water control valve. Let me know your results or if you need more assistance, Thanks, Sea Breeze

I ice maker keeps freezing in our side by side GE fridge.


This annoying problem can have a variety of causes. Check these four things first:
  1. Make sure the water supply is greater than 20 psi. If too low, thewater valve won’t seat properly and it’ll “weep.” Common causes of lowpressure are gunked-up saddle tap valves, kinked water supply line, andusing a reverse osmosis filter to supply water to the icemaker.
  2. Check between the valve diaphram and valve seat for sediment. If found, do not attempt to repair, buy a new valve.
  3. Check to see if the black, flexible portion of the fill tube iswrinkled, twisted, or kinked which can cause ice dams that block thefill tube.
  4. Find out if the water has been shut off while the icemaker has kepton cycling. This, too, can cause the fill tube to freeze up.
If all the above checks out and you’re still getting fill tube freeze-ups,then best get a service guy to take a look. It could be a complicated repair.
