Question about Refrigerators
Has not made ice since house water was turned off for 3 hours and turned back on
Posted by Anonymous on
My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.
1.) You may want to reboot your ice maker. You did not provide a model number so I can not tell you how to do this. Your model number is on a label on the inside wall, near the top, in your fresh food section.
2.) Is the water flow from you water dispenser slow? If so you may have a plugged up water supply shut off valve to your refrigerator.
When the water was turned off and then back on, the valve seating material may have broken free.
You need 65 PSI water pressure to the ice maker.
Turn off the water valve. Disconnect the water line at the solenoid valves. Have a bucket and towels ready.
After disconnecting and the valve shut off, is water still coming out?
Ok, with the water supply ling in the buck slowly open the water valve. Are you getting good pressure?
You may have a frozen fill tube to your icemaker.
You may also have a plugged up filter screen in your ice maker solenoid valve.
But I think you have a water supply problem at the valve.

Disconnect (or turn off) the freezer; also disconnect water supply. Keep that for a day to unfreeze water pipes inside then reconnect.
