Water will not fill my ice tray. I have good water

Water will not fill my ice tray on my side by side Whirlpool frig. I have good water flow coming out of my water dispenser on the outside door. Why isn't water filling my ice cube tray. My model has infra red control for the ice maker.

The whirlpool I have is a side by side if have a bottom drawer freezer. And my ice maker is in there .my light switch stop working so I replaced it so now the light comes on when the drawer is open...


If no ice check to see if there is water in the tray. If no water in ice maker tray issue is with the fill solenoid. If water in tray the heater is no good and the ice scooper cannot move the ice from the tray to the bin. If you want you can just replace the ice maker on ebay for cheap

How do I trouble shoot an ice maker on a whirlpool frig, model GI6FARXXY07. The water dispenser is working, but the tray is not filling.


On the back section inside the cardboard cover there is a dual solenoid operated valve that when energized by buttons on the front of the refrigerator either dispense water, (which appears to work by your descrition) and the other opens to fill ice maker tray. It sounds like the ice tray side is not enerzing or does not work. If you take your model number and go to Searspartsdirect.com you can order the replacement valve and get the system back in operation.
Before I trash a potentially good working dual valve, make sure someone has not turned the on/off switch on the ice maker and/or the bin full bail (if it has one) is in down position. The bin full bail looks shiny metallic and rotates down to the automatic position. When a batch of ice harvests, they puch up against this bail and will halt production when the bin gets full. Once lowered because of ice usages, the bail lowers again to start another batch of ice.
Hope this helps

Ice Maker Overfills With Water


Ice maker has adjustment on right side of power head. If ice maker is inside on upper left, you can remove white cover from it and the adjusting screw in on right. Turning counter-clockwise will decrease fill by 1/2 to 3/4 of ounce. Sounds like a small amount, but ice make only uses 4 ounces per fill. If this does not fix, try replacing fill valve. If ice maker ice bin is in the freezer door, you have to remove cover to ice maker in the top of freezer. Ice maker is screwed into top of freezer and need to be removed to take off cover to adjuster screw. same procedure for reducing water flow time as above.

I have a whirlpool refg. with built-in ice maker model# ED25DQXDW02. Everytime the frig. goes to fill the tray it fills it then over flows some. Is this a problem I can fix myself.


probably have to replace the icemaker take it out and look at the mold and see if you have some teflon coating that has come of and or some water deposit buildup under im on heater on bottom of icemaker. this causes it to let the water drip down on the back of im an causes iceblock in the dispenser bucker. you can order an icemaker 1- 877-262-1479
