Trying to reconnect a ice maker. I'm getting a leak where the copper line and brass flange/connector come together. Do I need to sodder something? (eg: the small flange that fits over the copper line??)

This is generally a compression style connector. if that is the case then loosen the threads and apply some teflon tape, be sure that the pipe is "seated" all the way in the fitting. Generally speaking there is no solder connections that are required. Make sure that you have the ferrule properly placed in the fittin as well.

I have a U-Line ULN B198B-00 and the water won't shut off. It ends up filling the ice bucket and overflowing. Could it be a bad solenoid??


If you can get to the solenoid you could remove the solenoid connector. If it shuts off then I would suspect the ice maker timer. if it doesn't shut off I would suspect the water valve/solenoid.

HOW TO HOOK UP AND START THE ICE MAKER ON JSI_23


Good Morning Le Morrer,

I see that you are trying to hook up and start the ice maker on your Frigidaire refrigerator, model# FRS3R5EMB.

To connect Water supply Line to ice Maker inlet valve:
1 Disconnect your refrigerator from the electric power source.
2 Place the end of water supply line into sink or bucket. Turn ON water supply and flush supply line until water is clear. Turn OFF water supply at shutoff valve.
3 Remove plastic cap from water valve inlet and discard cap.
4 If you use copper tubing - Slide brass compression nut, then ferrule (sleeve) onto water supply line. Push water supply line into water valve inlet as far as it will go (1/4 inch/6.4mm). Slide ferrule (sleeve) into valve inlet and finger tighten compression nut onto valve. Tighten another half turn with a wrench; DO NOT over tighten.
If you use stainless steel tubing - The nut and ferrule are already assembled on the tubing. Slide compression nut onto valve inlet and finger tighten compression nut onto valve. Tighten another half turn with a wrench; DO NOT over tighten.
5 With steel clamp and screw, secure water supply line (copper tubing only) to rear panel of refrigerator as shown.
6 Coil excess water supply line (copper tubing only) about 2 and 1/2 turns behind refrigerator and arrange coils so they do not vibrate or wear against any other surface.
7 Turn ON the water supply at shutoff valve and tighten any connections that leak.
8 Reconnect your refrigerator to electrical power source.
9 To turn the ice maker on, lower wire signal arm (side mounted) or set the ice maker's ON/Off power switch to the "I" position (rear mounted).

After connecting the water supply, you will need to prime the water supply system.
To Prime The Water Supply System:
1 Begin filling the tank by pressing and holding a drinking glass against the water dispenser paddle.
2 Keep the glass in this position until water comes out of the dispenser. There will be noticeable spurts and sputters as the system pushes air out through the system and dispenser nozzle. This is normal. This may take about 1 and 1/2 minutes.
3 Continue dispensing water for about 3 minutes to flush the system of any air and impurities. Empty the glass as needed.


The water dispenser has a built-in device that shuts off the water flow after 3 minutes of continuous use. To reset this shutoff device, simply release the dispenser paddle. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Icemaking is ok but I find water at the bottom of the frige .What seems to be the Problem tHIS A ULINE BAR REFIRERATOE WITH iCE MAKER


Your feed line may have a leak in the line itself or in one of the connectors. This it the line that sends water to the automatic ice-maker. Check the line coming from the wall to the ice-maker connector and slide your hand down the line. You will find water somewhere along this line and you have found your leak. This should be very easy to fix.

How to reassemble ice dispenser parts od kenmore model 106.5706*602


Clean out the new ice maker with warm soapy water.

Ensure that the floor surface under your refrigerator is level. If the floor surface under your refrigerator isn't level, you can place shims under the legs of the refrigerator to fix the uneven surface.

Turn off the main water supply to your house.

Clear the water line by running the faucets until the pipe clears.

Screw the copper supply line's connector to the house's cold water connector valve. Use an adjustable wrench to tighten the connection.

Slide the compression sleeve and nut onto the other end of the copper supply line. The compression sleeve and nut will wrap around the outside of the copper supply line.

Bend the copper supply line to fit into the water line inlet casing located on the back of the refrigerator. Leave slack in the line so that the refrigerator can be pulled away from the wall or cabinets. The water line inlet casing is a plastic bracket used to hold the copper supply line in place so that there is no pull on the tubing's connection. It is the larger of the two plastic brackets located on the back of the refrigerator.

Insert the compression sleeve located around the end of the copper supply line into the ice maker connector. The ice maker connector is already installed on the back of the Maytag refrigerator.

Tighten the nut over the connection between the compression sleeve on the copper supply line and the ice maker connector with an adjustable wrench.

Attach the water supply tube clamp to the water supply line by clipping it into place. The water supply tube clamp is a plastic bracket located on the back of the refrigerator that holds the supply tube so that it doesn't rattle and become disconnected. It is the smaller of the two brackets located on the back of the refrigerator.

Turn on the main water supply.

Check all connections for leaks.

Position the drain hose located on the back of the ice maker over your floor drain. Use a PVC pipe if you need to redirect the drain hose flow so that it falls over the floor drain. The PVC pipe should not touch the drain hose and should have no low point where the water can settle.

Plug the ice maker into a 3-prong grounded outlet.

When water enters fridge for ice maker, it makes banging sounds. I have replaced valve several times, but still gets banging sound after a short time of use


The banging sound more than likely is being caused by your water line that is attached to the rear of your unit banging agains the chassis or wall. It can also be the line inside the bottomg of you unit striking something. This banging most likely is caused by what is called a watter hammer. When the ice maker cycles and the water valve opens momentariily the pressure in the line drops and when the vavle closes post add water cycle the pressure rapidly builds up in the line causing the line to move and strike something. Over time this can cause a water leak from the water line chafffing and the line begins to leak. It is not a serious situation but I would keep an eye on the copper or plastic water line to see what it is doing during the add water / fill cycle of the ice maker.

We have a leak in the back bottom of our refrigerator , ice maker


You say there was a new copper line attached? I assume that this means a repair has been done. If the unit has been slightly overcharged with refrigerant, this can cause excessive condensate to build up on the return copper tubing and would then drip in the back of the fridge. Or you should check on the drainpipe which often has a drainpan built either over the compressor dome or somewhere within the compressor area. Make sure the drainpipe is not missing the pan and that the pan is not leaking.

Cant seem to get the Icemaker working


Mungah, There is no valve that needs to be turned on. The water travels through the valve into the filter and up to the ice-maker. Try pressing the water lever and stay on it until the water fills the filter and comes out. You should hear the valve energizing. The ice maker cycles every 2.5 hrs. approx. When it calls for water it may take several cycles to prime the line and fill the ice maker...As far as the leak, something is wrong with that compression connection, re-do it and see if it stops...Catriver..post back.
