Re: ice maker

If the filter had clogged up and wasn't letting enough water into the icemaker, it probably caused water to freeze in the fill tube going to the icemaker. You can usually clear this with a hairdryer. It is easier to do it by removing the ice maker so that you can get to the fill tube directly. The icemaker is held in by 2 screws at the top and usually one screw under it. You may also be able to remove the fill tube completely from the rear of the refrigerator and clear it with hot water from the sink with out removing the icemaker. If you do this be sure to turn the icemaker off so it doesn't try to run water while you have the water line loose.
Post back if you need further assistance or this is not the problem and we will walk through the steps to check the icemaker system.

I have an admiral American fridge freezer. The ice maker is continuously leaking water if the power is switched on as though a switched on. How can I stop the water ?

To verify if its the valve or the ice maker the easiest way would be to unplug the machine and then turn the water on. If the water stops, then the ice maker is bad and is continuously applying power to the valve causing the flood problem and should be changed. If the water keeps on coming out then the valve is bad and stuck open and should be changed.

Ice maker is not working. it turn and make the turning but no ice is producing.

Hello. Check to see if any water is entering the ice cube mold. Most likely it is not and the cause is either a clogged filter, a clogged supply line, a kink in the 1/4 inch line that feeds the fridge, or a frozen valve that would normally open and close to let water into the ice maker. J.

Ice maker won't make ice after replacing water filter -plugged

I've had the discolored water before when replacing the filter. It normally means that there was gunk in the water line.

Do you still hear the ice maker trying to draw water in?
If not, the water pump might be burnt out.

If so, see below.

The water lines that feed the dispencer and the ice maker split after a certain point.

It's possible that the line that feeds the ice maker might be clogged. You should be able to get to it by removing a few screws and pulling off the back panel of the fridge. Then you can check them out and remove the clog.

Ice maker on Admiral HMG 62165 side by side

check the lever in the ice bin. if it is stuck in the up position it thinks the ice bin is full and will not make ice. Just wiggle it to the down position.

Problem with fridge ice maker

assuming the freezer is cold enough and that you have a valid water supply hooked up, either the icemaker is bad or the water valve is bad, best idea is to replace both.

Water Dispenser and Ice Maker

Have you checked the pressure limiting valve which protects the filter from over pressure? It could be blocked/faulty. Have you checked the inlet on the valve assembly? It may be clogged up. Try bypassing the filter all together to determine if the filter is faulty.

Admiral Refrigerator makes hollow ice

Hollow ice cubes are due to low water pressure to the fridge. Water thru the door should have good pressure behind it. This is a good indicator of water pressure. Should be able to fill a glass quickly. Causes for low pressure are self-piercing saddle valves on the water line (switch to drill type (1/4") valve) or reverse osmosis system or filtering system on water line to the fridge. R.O. systems should not be used. Increase water pressure and that will fix the hollow cubes. The loud noise may be the sound of the water valve on the fridge when it is acivated. This sound is normal and some are louder than others.
