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.

SOURCE: whirlpool side by side ice maker freezes up. can't get ice out of

Can you give more details?
If the ice chute is frosting up, chute door is not sealing, air , with moisture, is getting in and freezing. An ice cube getting trapped by the door will cause this also. Either case, replace door and delay mechanism.

My freezer is not freezing anymore please help as can not afford a new one ..thank you


Hi,
Follow the steps mentioned below to solve the problem:
First remove the ice bin and look inside the mold of the ice maker to see if it is full of ice. If the ice sensing arm is down ( on position) and the ice maker is full of ice, there is a failure inside the ice maker and the ice maker should be replaced.
If there is no ice in the ice maker, look at the fill tube on the rear of the ice maker. If the fill tube is frozen up the ice maker can't fill.
You can defrost the fill tube with a hair dryer.
The water valve on the rear of the refrigerator supplies water to the water dispenser and the ice maker. Since the water dispenser is working, the only line that could be blocked runs up the back of the cabinet and attaches to the fill tube for the ice maker. The water valve could be bad and not sending water to the ice maker.
If the fill tube freezes again you should replace the water valve.
Hope this helps.

I know this is a stupid question but is the water supply to my ice maker(ed25ue whirlpool)connected from the back of the freezer at the top?If so does the supply that goes to it run through the filter...


water enters from a valve through the filter through either of two valves to either the water dispenser or the ice-maker . The water enters the ice maker through the small tube running up the back of the fridge and then into a spout inside.

The tube feeding the ice making machine is iced up? What is the solution?


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 blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

Whirlpool automatic icemaker not working


Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. It’s on the back where the water supply comes in. 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.

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.

Whirlpool GS6SHAXMQ Side by Side Refrigerator - Ice Maker Problem


This happened to me after i had to move the freezer and it was unplugged for a while. When it was plugged back in the ice maker would not work.

Assuming both the ice maker itself and the rear water AC solenoid switch are actually not broken and are functional, and you are getting water from front door dispenser, then check the inside supply tube (black) is not frozen and blocked. Check with q-tip or feel to see if frozen.

If supply tube is frozen, thaw by holding up small full clear glass of heated water placing the frozen tube into the heated water. The clear glass will allow you to see when ice slips out.

Next try resetting the freeze cycle. Turn off the ice maker switch, remove the maker by carefully disconnecting the inside power cord. You will need to remove the inside door flap. Rinse the maker with warm water, allow to come to room temp.

Re-install maker, connect power cord. Turn on ice maker switch. Make sure Infrared sensor is not blocked. Now wait for temp change and listen for water to fill tray. It took maybe ten minutes for me. You will be able to hear the water fill with the door closed.

Again, this assumes nothing is actually broken.

This worked for me. Good luck.

Auto ice maker is not working. ice maker unit in the freezer, not the door type.


Likely that the water supply tube to the icemaker is frozen. It will be a white rubber tube on the right side of the icemaker. Warm it with a hair dryer, remove it from its aluminum tubing, and make sure there is no ice all the way back to where the supply tube comes from the water valve. After thawing, your icemaker should start working again.

Now..... why did it freeze? Most likely, there is a restricted airflow to the back of the unit, which is need to keep that aluminum supply tube just warm enough to assure all the water flow OUT of it into the icemaker, and doesn't freeze up on contact. Make sure your coils and the airspace under the fridge are completely clean (vacuuum them well) and it should cure the problem.
