Question about U-Line Icemaker

Water leaking at fill valve or coming from ice tray?

I do not believe the trays are over flowing. How do you pull the ice maker out of the unit? Maybe its cracked?

    Yes I do have flakes in the ice. And yes the gears are corroded. But how would the face plate be causing this? And where can I get the part?

I doubt the mold would crack. Do you see flaking in the ice? Or remove front cover on icemaker and check to see if the gears are corroided. If so it might be the faceplate needs to be replaced. Now depending on your model to remove icemaker you have 3 screws there is 2 screws on the side wall. FIRST remove the back panel and pull the sensor tube out and also disconnect the wires for the icemaker. There will be alumalastic on the bottom of icemaker and it needs to be replaced when you remove the icemaker.
By replacing the faceplate you will correct 2 of possible problems. Part#150

    Ok The flakes is whats causing it. Usually when you turn the unit off and water sits in there it eats at the teflon. Always run the unit for an hour longer whith the water off to make sure no water is left standing in there. You will need to replace the icemaker.If this is under 3 years old then call U-line with serial number to replace your icemaker.

    The flaking is causing the flow of water to be pushed out of the icemaker instead down in the mold.

    Hope this helps out for you.

Ice maker won't make ice


most times I see the tray and fill tube ice up its due to a leaky fill valve , this valve should close tight after filling tray , but sometimes they leak just slightly then everything freezes up in a block of ice

fill valves on most all units is located in back lower left corner , just follow the water line in the back of unit

Why is my Uline ice maker filling with water not ice ?


At first I wanted to say it has to fill with water to make ice but I know you mean the ice bin is filling with water. You either have an issue with the water control valve leaking or your timer isn't working properly. Listen for the water to flow and when it seems to shut off look at the tray fill spout and see if it actually stopped dripping. If it continues to drip (not flow normally) then the valve is leaking. If it isn't dripping but the water in the ice tray over flowed, then the issue is either with the timer or the adjustment is incorrect.

Kitchenaid superba the ice maker not filling up and making ice


dear owittione perhaps the tray if its plastic maybe its cracked and the water drains out while filling check to see if there is a clump of ice in the bin and if so replace the ice tray no if is metal maybe the same thing is happening also check for the clump of ice in the bin. Now if you dont hear any water going in the ice tray maybe the magnetic valve in the back of the fridge is bunded out or the hose from the tap to the valves has a leak or the hose from the valve to the ice tray has a leak . Check around for water puddles if formed. Those are the probable causes that can lead to your problem ofcourse if the refrigerator over all is working fine. good luck. Regards Tony.

I have a kitchenaid 23cd.Icemaker doesn't work has 40# water pressure 5 deg in freezer water works to fill glass no water in ice tray unpluged for 24 hours


If the water dispenser is working and fill glass function is working but the ice maker section there is no water in the tray then its faulty ice maker valve.This is a twin valve.The valve is one unit,but has two sections one for water and one for ice dispenser.This valve is got faulty and not working for both sections so water is not entering the ice maker tray.
There is a water valve at the back of the ice maker.This valve controls the flow of water in the ice maker chamber.If this valve is not functioning as required then water will not enter the ice maker.This valve is at the back of ice maker connected to the water fill tube.It has to be replaced to clear this problem.

You can get required parts from sears part direct online site or from repairclinic.com site.

This will help. Thanks. Helpmech.

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 pulled out the ice tray on our MSD2351HEB and now it won't make ice. I've moved the lever up and down, verified that the tray is ALL the way in to no avail.


The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.
The valve can leak because of sediment in the water preventing it from closing or low water pressure

Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. 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.

Whirlpool Refrigerator Model ED25PW Ice maker tray not filling with water


Just had this issue - after checking all line connections, I pulled the ice maker feed water line from the back of the unit and found the tube was blocked with ice. Melted the ice with some hot water, and all is good once more. I would check for this before getting into the solinoid.
