The hot gas valve is activated during the machines harvest cycle letting hot gas defrost the evporator. If it is "leaking by " that means that it is not fully closing during the freeze cycle causing high suction pressures and inefficient operation of the machine. And maximum freeze cycles. If that is happening it will need to be replaced by a qualified technician.

My Ice maker doesn't make ice anymore


90% of ice maker problems are water related. Sounds like water may be continually seeping in from the inlet water valve (normal thing to do if the water level is low). This will not allow the water to get down to freezing temperature. You have to identify the reason that water is constantly running in. It's probably "leaking" out at the dump valve. Or does that unit have a float valve that may be leaking. Check your drain to see if water is leaking out during the freeze cycle.

Freeze back up timer3beeps


signal means freeze cycle is longer than 60 minutes. Look for: stuck float, water valve leaking water into the sump, Hot Gas Valve leaking hot gas into the cold side of the refrigeration system. Start there.

How do i add freon to system


Get a saddle valve like THIS ONE. Sand down the suction line or compressor ear and attach the valve. Connect hoses to the valve and add some freon. The low side pressure should be around
5 PSI.

3 beeps every 3 sec


3 beeps every 3 sec. = Freeze Back Up Timer. Freeze > 60 minutes.
Yellow LED marked 60 MIN energizes.
Check for F/S stuck closed (up), WV leaking by, HGV leaking by, TXV not feeding
properly, low charge, or inefficient compressor.

Whirlpool GR2FHTXVQ00 fridge. Water dispenser


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.

You can thaw out the fill tube and replace the inlet valves.

Beeping 3 times every 3 seconds


The 3 beeps indicates that the unit was in the freeze cycle for 60 minutes. Causes: 1.) Water valve leaking, allowing water to continually enter the system. 2.) Float switch stuck, sending false signal to board. This indicates ice not being produced. 3,.) Low freon level causing long freeze cycle. 4.) Hot gas valve leaking thru causing warmer than normal evap plates=low production. 5.) Expansion Valve not feeding freon properly to evap plates.
Items 1 and 2 are the most common. Number 3 possible due to freon leak in the system. Number 4 and 5 are usually a very rare occurance.
Hope this helps ya.

LEAKS WATER WHERE WATER LINE GOES INTO FREEZER.


An easier fix is to redo the connection. Turn off the tap the supplies water to refrigerator, should be on your cold water line under the sink. Remove not on the solenoid valve(blue valve) slide the nut further up the vinyl tubing cut the tubing above the old connection. push the tubing into valve and tighten nut finger tight. turn the tap on a little and check for leaks at the solenoid. If no leaks open tap all the way. If leak tighten nut a little more only until leak stops. then turn tap on all the way.
