High pressure water inlet line judders and makes a noise when using the water dispenser. I have cleaned the filer at the water inlet junction but the noise continues. Any ides what is going on please?


Operation of the dispenser solenoid causes vibration in the supply line. If the line is copper, the noise can be quite apparent. You may be able to minimize the noise by switching to a plastic supply line, decreasing the pressure, or both.

HOW TO HOOK UP AND START THE ICE MAKER ON JSI_23


Good Morning Le Morrer,

I see that you are trying to hook up and start the ice maker on your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRS3R5EMB.

To connect Water supply Line to ice Maker inlet valve:
1 Disconnect your refrigerator from the electric power source.
2 Place the end of water supply line into sink or bucket. Turn ON water supply and flush supply line until water is clear. Turn OFF water supply at shutoff valve.
3 Remove plastic cap from water valve inlet and discard cap.
4 If you use copper tubing - Slide brass compression nut, then ferrule (sleeve) onto water supply line. Push water supply line into water valve inlet as far as it will go (1/4 inch/6.4mm). Slide ferrule (sleeve) into valve inlet and finger tighten compression nut onto valve. Tighten another half turn with a wrench; DO NOT over tighten.
If you use stainless steel tubing - The nut and ferrule are already assembled on the tubing. Slide compression nut onto valve inlet and finger tighten compression nut onto valve. Tighten another half turn with a wrench; DO NOT over tighten.
5 With steel clamp and screw, secure water supply line (copper tubing only) to rear panel of refrigerator as shown.
6 Coil excess water supply line (copper tubing only) about 2 and 1/2 turns behind refrigerator and arrange coils so they do not vibrate or wear against any other surface.
7 Turn ON the water supply at shutoff valve and tighten any connections that leak.
8 Reconnect your refrigerator to electrical power source.
9 To turn the ice maker on, lower wire signal arm (side mounted) or set the ice maker's ON/Off power switch to the "I" position (rear mounted).

After connecting the water supply, you will need to prime the water supply system.
To Prime The Water Supply System:
1 Begin filling the tank by pressing and holding a drinking glass against the water dispenser paddle.
2 Keep the glass in this position until water comes out of the dispenser. There will be noticeable spurts and sputters as the system pushes air out through the system and dispenser nozzle. This is normal. This may take about 1 and 1/2 minutes.
3 Continue dispensing water for about 3 minutes to flush the system of any air and impurities. Empty the glass as needed.


The water dispenser has a built-in device that shuts off the water flow after 3 minutes of continuous use. To reset this shutoff device, simply release the dispenser paddle. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

My ice maker produced blue ice. Does anyone know how to fix this and what causes this? Maytag model MTB2156BE


If your water supply line is copper, check to see if it is corroded inside the line. It sounds like copper sulfate or copper chloride in the water supply. If it is corrosion build up try replacing the supply line.

How to reassemble ice dispenser parts od kenmore model 106.5706*602


Clean out the new ice maker with warm soapy water.

Ensure that the floor surface under your refrigerator is level. If the floor surface under your refrigerator isn't level, you can place shims under the legs of the refrigerator to fix the uneven surface.

Turn off the main water supply to your house.

Clear the water line by running the faucets until the pipe clears.

Screw the copper supply line's connector to the house's cold water connector valve. Use an adjustable wrench to tighten the connection.

Slide the compression sleeve and nut onto the other end of the copper supply line. The compression sleeve and nut will wrap around the outside of the copper supply line.

Bend the copper supply line to fit into the water line inlet casing located on the back of the refrigerator. Leave slack in the line so that the refrigerator can be pulled away from the wall or cabinets. The water line inlet casing is a plastic bracket used to hold the copper supply line in place so that there is no pull on the tubing's connection. It is the larger of the two plastic brackets located on the back of the refrigerator.

Insert the compression sleeve located around the end of the copper supply line into the ice maker connector. The ice maker connector is already installed on the back of the Maytag refrigerator.

Tighten the nut over the connection between the compression sleeve on the copper supply line and the ice maker connector with an adjustable wrench.

Attach the water supply tube clamp to the water supply line by clipping it into place. The water supply tube clamp is a plastic bracket located on the back of the refrigerator that holds the supply tube so that it doesn't rattle and become disconnected. It is the smaller of the two brackets located on the back of the refrigerator.

Turn on the main water supply.

Check all connections for leaks.

Position the drain hose located on the back of the ice maker over your floor drain. Use a PVC pipe if you need to redirect the drain hose flow so that it falls over the floor drain. The PVC pipe should not touch the drain hose and should have no low point where the water can settle.

Plug the ice maker into a 3-prong grounded outlet.

Central Heat and Air noises.


Hi, It sounds to me that this split system you have is a heat-pump and not a gas fire air handler. The noise that you are hearing must be the freon in the copper lines equalizing in the system upon shut down of the compressor. All systems must and will go through this sequence. It shouldn't be that loud though. The copper lines should have armor flex on at least the larger suction line for insulation and to keep it from condensating everywhere in the summer in the cooling mode.If you find it is bare with nothing on it, you can buy this insulated tubing at Home Depot or O.S.Hardware. Its black in color and is split down the entire 10' section with glue covered seams on it. This should cut down the noise. Depending on the unit size Tonnage wise, the suction line may be 3/4" or 5/8" in diameter.Just ask for there water line insulation and like I said it comes in 10' sections and is very cheap, 20cents a foot or so. Please keep me posted if this does not take care of the problem. It may be coming from the lines where they enter the air handler. I will wait for you're reply.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7

Water supply line pops off the valve and sprays the wall get on floor and winds up in the basement when water is requested by ice maker. How do you correct???


Your fill tube (supplys water directly to icemaker ) is frozen up inside the freezer . You need to replace the water valve due to slow leakage letting the drips freeze inside the tube eventually freezing solid and when icemaker calls for water , the water pressure blows the small tubing out of the fill tube .

Rheem small 6 gallon water heater vibration/noise


If the water heater is working fine than I would not worry about the function of the water heater. What the problem may be is that some of your WATER LINES HAVE MOVED, AS THEY WERE NOT SECURED PROPERLY. The sound you may have heard was the Copper or PVC(Plastic) lines just getting back comfortable. I Suggest checking that your water lines are secured about every 3 or 4 feet with the proper ancjhor....Metal for metal pipe, copper for copper pipe, etc. Sometime as in my house, pipes are run through a hole drilled through a stud or a piece of wood, usually when hot water is run through this pipe. You can here an expansion of the water line interacting with the pipe expanding, if the hole in the wood was not drilled big enough......Experience of remodeling a very old house.......Joe
