This is a earlier marvel built unit. Co voltage to valve then look at the control . Ck your serial break. Cheaper to call marvel for part as Viking and marvel parted ways in 2010. Current units built by Scotsman . Viking range just purchased u line and that will be down the road for UC built products . Fyi

SOURCE: how do i turn my ice maker off?

To switch off the ice maker simply pull out the ice bucket and remove and you will see a thin bar under the maker that you can simply push up until it clicks, hey presto its off!
If the leak continues look underneath the right hand door at the bottom and you will see where the waterline is attached, either turn the shut off tap (if one was fitted) or unscrew the pipe after disconnecting the mains water.
Good luck!

SOURCE: Water dispenser freezing on viking refrig

One thing that can cause this s the removal of the styrofoam block that surrounds the water reservoir. A lot of people think this is just for shipping but it is necessary to prevent the water freezing.

If it is missing it ill need to be replaced.

Viking built-in refrigerator/freezer:tube that fills the icemaker is freezing, so ice maker not working. Tech says because hooked up to RO, advised up pressure to 50. Of note, non-factory ice maker


The reason the fill tube freezes up is because the water valve is leaking by. 50PSI should be enough pressure. You most likely need a water valve.

My ice maker isn't getting water in to make ice. I can manually pour water into the maker, let it freeze, and get the maker to get the ice out, but no water comes in. GE model GSHS5KGX. Side by side...


Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
This can cause slow ice making if its too high even tho its freezing everything else at 25 degrees
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects theb you need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
If its leaking same part needs replaced.The water valve at the bottom rear of fridge.

My water works on my refrigerator but my ice maker doesn't work.


Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If it freezes and dumps , replace the water valve ( the piece the wall water line connects to on the refrig ) . If it freezes and does not dump , replace the ice maker . Also check the rake ( rotating arm ) , to see if a small piece of ice could be blocking it , keeping it from turning . If so , the small cube could be an indication of not enough water going into the ice maker ( replace the water valve ) .

Ice maker no longer makes ice; water still comes for the filered water outlet but there appears to be no water going to the ice maker;


THE WATER VALVE IN THE BACK IS A TWO PART SYSTEM. EVEN THOUGH YOU GET WATER FROM THE DOOR THE ICE MAKER SIDE OF THE VALVE COULD BE BAD. CHANGE VALVE. B4 YOU SPEND THAT KINDA MONEY--DO A SELF CHECK FIRST--POUR WATER IN THE ICE CUBE TRAY. IF IT FREEZES AND DUMPS THEN CHANGE THEWATER VALVE. IF IT FREEZES BUT DONT DUMP CHANGE THE ICE MAKER.

Replaced ice maker on kenmore 106.54582400 still doesn't work. Don't think any water is going to ice maker but I have water to door dispenser.


It's is possible that the dual water control valve on rear of refrigerator is defective on the side that controls water to the ice maker. The part number is 4389177 or 949403 Water Control Valve. Pour tap water into your new ice maker. If when the water freezes and dumps the ice there is no refill of water I would believe the water control valve is defective. Sea Breeze

Ice maker doesn't work


Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If it freezes and dumps the cubes , but doesn't fill with water , replace the water inlet valve ( the piece that the wall water line connects to on the fridge ) . Also check to be sure that the fill tube from the back of the freezer to the ice maker , isn't blocked with ice , as this is caused by a seeping bad water valve . If the ice maker doesn't dump the cubes , after freezing , then replace the ice maker . Also check to make sure the coils under the front of the refrig , are clean of dust , lint , pet hair , etc.

Ice maker not making ice


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 and replace it if it does.

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.

No ice


put your finger into the mold of the icemaker or get a mirror and see if there is any water in it, if not, pour 5 oz. of water into the mold and wait approx. 2 hours, if ice dumps out then you have a water supply problem. the fill tube line entering the the mold could be iced up, if it is then your water valve maybe leaking and freezing up. also the water valve may not be opening up and may need to be replaced if it still doesn't dump out the water you poured in the you will have a problem with the icemaker itself
