Yes if you can plug off the flow effectively. It would only be a tiny bit more of effort to fix the leak at this point.

Lg French door inside ice maker stops working but water flows out the back of the fridge where the water line gores in. Water line is fine and just had a new ice maker put in but it still does not produce...


Sounds like you have to have a leak in the water line somewhere. The water line goes to the top hinge in the door, so the water has to come from somewhere below that point or it would be collecting inside the door and leak out the front. A leak would prevent water from getting to the ice maker, or a leak at the valve could have this effect as well. Check the water valve that gets a call to send water to the ice maker.

Water is not getting to the icemaker. however, it is dispensing at the glass tap


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.

When your ice maker dumps and refills with water it will come out the water dispenser with the wires swapped. If it doesn't then I would have to blame it on the solenoid.

If the lines are the same size you can also swap them around to do this check.
Water inlet Valve

You can disconnect the line coming out of it and try the water dispenser to see if the valve is working. If it's getting power it should click when you try it and water come out.
The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

The water dispenser in my refrigerator ice maker is leaking


if you have recently changed your filter, had the water turned off, or disconnected from the ref this is a common problem. you have air in your water line. fill 5-6 large cups of water or until it stops spurting and your drip should go away

Water line from house supply sprung a leak just before going into the ice maker control unit in the lower right cornor of the frig. After replacint the water line the water did not flow into the control...


What once was a leak is now no flow and no response when trying to turn on ice maker? Is the valve where the ice maker line taps into turned back on? If it's back on, first turn it off, take loose water line as close to ice maker as possible, then have someone else turn valve at tap slightly on while you watch for water flow. If no flow, start back-tracing your connections until you find the blockage. Most water connections of this type have a in-line filter. Is it clogged? If you have water pressure as close to the ice maker as you can test, next you may need to troubleshoot the ice maker it's self. Let me know?

How do i turn my ice maker off? i have a viking side by side and the ice maker is just pouring water in my freezer...its a mess!


Turn the water off under the sink where the small line starts that goes to the fridge or there may be a cut off directly behind the fridge in the supply line.
Your water inlet valve may be stuck open. It's where the water supply connects to the fridge.

Ice machine not working, I have water in the door but no ice. looks like there might be a ice buildup. I had a leak in the water line and this problem started after I fixed the water line


Is the ice buildup in the ice bin storage or ice maker. The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

Water dispenser leaks, ice maker won't make ice. Hve disconnected line at bottom front, and tried blowing out the lines, no help. Model EDQ22DQFNX00


Your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking. disconnect the water line coming out of it and see if you have a slow drip. Try the dispenser to see if it's just drips after use.

For the ice maker problem, 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.If it does, the problem is the ice maker and not the valve and line.

Water dispenser is not working


I fixed mine by leaving the light on the dispenser on. It took about 6 hrs, but the little heat from the light bulb was enough to defrost the water line.
