New (3 days old) Kenmore Elite refrigerator model 795.7103 with ice maker. Water supply line to the ice maker immediately froze up so won't fill tray to make ice. Serviceman came out and melted ice...


First of all, your freezer should be much lower than 38 degrees. For the ice maker to even work proplerly it has to be below 10 F. Some models have a heater that goes around the fill tube to keep that from happening, but in my opinion, if its only three days old, take it back because it's much too soon for that problem to be occuring.

Water not going to ice maker


That happened to me once and while it was with an older fridge, it's possible it could be the same problem. In my case, the water inside the supply line actually froze. Tried using hot towels and such on the water supply line but in the end, I had to empty out the Fridge and defrost it for a day. Water for the ice maker worked again after that... and I had a clean fridge!
Hope this helps...

If the water valve is leaking a bit, it will cause freezeup, as will a flow restriction. The 'water splashed inside freezer' sounds like leaky shut-off valve.

Sometimes those 'saddle pirecing' water shutoff valves get restricted, so you are not getting enough pressure.

Also, if you had things disconnected, a little bit of grit may be in the filter or shut-off valve, causing issues.

I would:

a) check the house water pressure, to make sure it's normal

b) check/clean/replace fridge water filter

c) inspect/replace saddle valve and look for kinked water feed line

d) backflush water out of fridge, if possible, and look at clean/inspect/replace water valve.

Although they do make add-on heater kits for water maker feed lines, your issue just sounds like a water flow issue...either a leaky valve or a flow restriction.

The icemaker calls for water but no water comes into it


Starting from the start, make sure the valve behind the fridge is open. then make sure when you disconnect the tube from the intake of the refrigerator, that water comes out. Then check the intake filter on the fridge for debris. Then defrost the freezer in case the intake line froze. If you still have no water going into the ice maker, the valve is probably bad. If you post the make/model and go through those steps I'll help you take the Icemaker apart...

Ice maker will not produce Ice


Make suer the freezer temp is 5 degrees or lower. If not the ice maker will not operate. Also make sure that you have water pressure at the back of the fridge. If so, you most likely have a bad water valve. It is what your water supply connects to. You can test it like this. Disconect the water line on the fridge side of the valve. Unplug the wires from the valve. Supply 110v to the plug. If water comes out from where you disconected the line, the valv is good. If not, you will need to replace it. If you can't find the answer with this. Reply back and I'll talk you through until we find it.

Internal water dispenser stopped working


I lowered the temp on the freezer to 4 overnight, by morning water dispenser is working fine. I think that when we changed the temp to 7 (in order to make more ice ) it froze the water pipe going to the dispenser. I am going to keep both fridge and freezer at 5 ,and hope this will not happen again.

Ice maker


Disconnect the plastic hose at the top of the refer (the one coming from the water valve) and set the end into a glass. After about two hours you should have water in the glass. If you have water in the glass then the spout that is inside the freezer is froze up and needs to be thawed out (use a blowdryer), If there is no water then it will be the valve or ice maker.
If it is froze up, adjust the cold controls back to the middle settings, you may have it to cold in your freezer.
