WATER FREEZING IN ICE MAKER

The water tube that carries water into the automatic ice maker keeps freezing solid. I get my blow dryer and thaw out the ice and the ice maker will work for a few days then it will freeze again.

Check 2 things. Make sure the fill tube is going downwards to the cup inside. The second thing is when the valve shuts off make sure it closes right away. If it doesnt then replace the valve.

Ice Maker WR30X0327 Freezing Over I have an


We have extremely hard water in the East Mountains of NM. Our refrigerator Ice Makers only lasted about a year before the Calcium from the underground Calcium just killed them. I solved the problem by buying, from ebay, a small restaurant ice-maker. I Always fill it with filtered water, and it has been chugging away for years. Our water tested Harder than an Hot-tub maker had ever seen, even after going through our old, Sears, water-filter. Ergo - how hard is your water? Could that be the problem. Just a thought.

Hi Jan, the problem is a bad ice maker water valve. Pull the refrigerator out and look for the plastic water line that's going to the tube that's freezing. Follow that tube to the faulty water valve. The problem is, its leaking water slowly to the ice maker and it freezes up . Easy fix : Good luck

The line to our ice maker is frozen solid with ice. Do you know how to get the ice out of it? I'd prefer to not have to defrost the whole thing.


Pull the refrig out from the wall and you will see where the single tube to the ice maker goes . Try removing the line housing straight out the back , and thawing at the sink . Or , 2 screws hold the ice maker on . Remove the ice maker and thaw the line with a hair dryer . You will need to replace the water valve ( the piece the wall water line connects to on the refrig ) due to a seeping problem . When the valve does not close completely , drops will seep into the fill tube and freeze , thereby , blocking the normal rate of water , entering the ice maker .

Ice maKer is not getting water but the water side works.


Your refrig water valve , has 2 coils on one valve . One is for the water dispensor , and one is for the ice maker . So even if you get water thru the dispensor , the other coil ( for the ice maker ) could be bad . The fill tube from inside the freezer to the ice maker , could be frozen solid , keeping the water from entering the ice maker . This frozen tube , would be caused be the water valve " seeping " , which means , it isn't closing completely , and drips freezing inside the tube . indicating a bad water valve . Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If it dumps , but doesn't refill with water , replace the water valve but also check this tube . If the ice maker does not dump the frozen cubes , replace the ice maker , but also check the coils under the refrig , for dust , lint , etc , needing to be cleaned off . The ice maker needs to be 5 degrees to operate , and dirty coils can keep the freezer at 6 degrees or above .

Kitchenaid ice maker dripping and freezing down freezer shelfs


Tube sometimes freezes because of minerals in it hold one droplet at a time until buildup freezes solid. Replace tube first. Water valve allowing some droplets through can also cause this. Tube first-less expensive.

No water to icemaker


Ok, you will need to test the operational value of the dual water inlet valve assembly. the ice maker side of the dual valve assembly may be stuck or malfunctioning. replace this valve if found to be faulty. i would also make sure that the lines to the ice maker are not frozen.

setting the temp below the factory settings can create a freezing affect of the water lines running to the ice maker. check this out.

In most cases, your water valve assembly will be this issue.

WATER RUNS DOWN FREEZER WALL


SRCTE,  Are you certain that you installed a NEW water valve?  To isolate the problem between the ice maker and the water valve.  Remove the ice maker from the refrigerator.  Inspect the water fill tube for being stopped up with solid ice.  If so, clear the solid ice with a hair dryer blowing hot air into the end of the water fill tube.  Insert a long screw driver into the end of the water fill tube to break loose any remaining solid ice up in the tube.  Inspect with a flash lite to verify the water fill tube is clear and open.  Leave the ice maker out of the refrigerator overnite and operate the refrigerator as normally used.  After 6-8 hours, open the freezer door and inspect the end of the water fill tube; if the water fill tube is clear of solid ice then you have a bad ice maker which must be replaced.  If on the other hand the water fill tube has ice protruding from the water fill tube then the water valve is defected and must be replaced again.  If the water valve is replaced you may desire to install an external in line water filter. Hope this helps you.  Henry

Ice maker is freezing up


The solenoid valve can leak slightly to make your problem. To check it, undo the tube from the solenoid to the freezer with the solenoid unplugged, and the water pressure on. Any leakage is bad, replace it.

Ice maker doesn't work


When you say you are getting water do you mean you are getting water in the ice maker tray? If so then unfortunately you will need to replace the ice maker. If not getting water to the ice maker then make sure the fill tube to the ice maker isn't frozen shut. If so, thaw it out and see what happens. If it isn't frozen shut then replace the ice maker. New ge ice makers, when installed, will not cycle until the ice maker gets below freezing so you will have to wait once it is installed.
