Sometimes the water chute that puts the water into the dispenser is too long and it hits the panel and it sprays everywhere.Just cut it a little shorter.

The filter should be before the fridge and should not affect it it sounds like the water valve from the fridge is defective .Other possibility is the icemaker head is defective and needs changing.

SOURCE: ice maker flooded top freezer compartment

It may be just the water control valve on back of refrigerator. Put tap water in ice maker and lower lever for on. After ice is made, does it drop to tray? At this time when empty is the time the control valve is asked for water. The problem could be in valve on back or the inside ice maker itself. If you can try a few test with me I will help you locate the problem. Let me know what you find as I go through this with you. Sea Breeze

My ice maker is not working on my gs5 sha side by side refrigerator freezer, it is spraying water everywhere inside the freezer, any help?


Make sure the water is coming from the ice maker by using additional light to spot the source of the leak then you possibly have a defective water fill valve leaking water slowly and causing water to freeze where water exits the tube into the ice maker. Once there is ice there and the ice maker calls for water the water either spews all over everything or is blocked from filling the ice maker cube slots altogether.

I have slimey, flaky sediment at the bottom of my glass of ice water. The water side is clear. I have a Whirlpool refrigerator with filter at bottom of freezer side. What can I do?


Your ice maker has a type of mold in it. Dump the ice turn off the water to the ice maker and let the ice maker clear the ice in it. Then get a spray bottle, put a little laundry liquid bleach and water in it and spray the tray where the ice cubes are made. . Let it sit for 10 or so minutes.then turn back on the water and let the ice maker go thru several cycles, dump that ice and then you're good to go.

Kenmore side by side ice maker sprays water into freezer


Is it actually spraying out of the icemaker or is it running down the back of the freezer?

Ice maker will not fill with water.


You mean " Why The Water Doesn't Fill the Tray in Kenmore Ice Maker?"
Am i right to your question? Well, Kenmore brand refrigerators often have an ice maker that uses the water supply to create ice inside the freezer compartment. Some models have an ice dispenser on the freezer door for easy access, and others simply create ice and deposit it into a tray inside the freezer. While most ice makers should work well with basic maintenance and care, issues may occasionally arise. One such problem is if the water does not fill the tray to create ice inside the ice maker. Resolving this issue may be possible through some troubleshooting efforts.

1 Remove the ice bin from the freezer.

2 Fill a turkey baster with hot water.

3 Spray hot water from the turkey baster into the tube at the back of the ice maker, which may be frozen or clogged.

4 Repeat spraying water into the tube until the blockage or frost is removed.

5 Replace the ice bin into the unit.
Please let me know if this help you.
Thanks for using FixYa

Ice maker sprays water...


sounds like the inlet part on the ice maker is froze over or not lined up in the opening of it right or a possibilty that the ice maker is leaking out the water if that is the case the ice maker needs replaced

Ice maker was making ice now water seems to be spraying all over freezer instead of going into maker


Have you changed the water filter as this regulates water pressure to the icemaker? is there ice left/stuck in the maker leaving the water no place to go (normally caused when the icemakers element dies)? If so you need a new freezer Ice maker unit. this unit is plug in and only three screws holding it in so this is the easy fix, but not that cheap. cheers

Ice maker problems


the heater on the ice maker has gone bad the easiest way to fix is to replace ice maker.the heater is on the bottom of the maker and heats tray up to harvest ice if it dont the ice will stick.But try taking maker out and cleaning it real good with a light spongee (Scrubee)
let it dry then spray some a light coat of pam (or similar) into ice bins and try that ahrd water will eat the coating off the bins

Maytag bottom freezer ice maker problem of ice removal


Usually low water pressure to the fridge will cause this problem. Not getting enough water to the ice maker will cause the cubes to be too small and get jammed easier. Check to see if you are using a self piercing saddle valve on your water line. If so change it to a drill type valve. This will increase water pressure to the fridge. New ice makers will not solve the problem.
