SOURCE: Ice maker freezing up

If it is only the fill tube that is freezing up, or getting full of ice, than your water valve is leaking (letting drops of water thru to your ice maker and filling the icemaker fill tube up and freezing). If this is the case, replace the dual water valve (part # 1071263) located in the back of the refrigerator, just follow the water line from your wall into the refrigerator. Make sure you turn off the water to the refrigerator and also unplug it. The dual water valve is the one that has two water lines, one going to the icemaker and one going to the water dispenser. On this model, I think you only have one water valve. On some you have two, the primary water valve and a secondary water valve (the dual valve). If this is your case, I would highly recommend you replace both. As far as the Refrigerator side freezing things up, I think that is a whole different issue. Please post back.

SOURCE: how to replace the ice maker unit.

I just RR'd mine. Undo the three screws on the bottom of the metal piece that the ice maker sits on, then the two screws that are horizontle above the . Take of the back, withdraw the termocouple from the tube that goes through the foam, clip the wires (5) leaving enough of a pigtail to crimp a **** splice to the new ones. Withdraw the fill tube. Don't lose the clay that seals the holes through the insulation. Withdraw the ice maker by gently twisting and pulling straight out. Replace in reverse order. Getting the screws back in is a little tricky.

SOURCE: remove faceplate in door of a kenmore frig.

If you look at the bottom of the facial plate, underneath. There are two slots to insert a flat screw driver. You should be able to access everything once you take that off. Good luck

CLR will work great, just rinse the ice maker very well after cleaning the calcium deposits and throw out the first few batches or bins of ice produced after the cleaning process. Good luck !

For non dispenser models there's now a slotted fill tube that will fix the problem. Contact your distributor.

Stop making ice...and water does not come out of unit. Ice seems to be frozen in upper unit that dumps into storage container.


remove unit. wash it out, remove all ice. try coating the ice cube area with some PAM NON FLAVORED spray..LIGHTLY.. usually, the ice maker is attached by a couple of screws, then you can get to the power plug, to detach and remove it. Overtime, the ice cubes will stick to the surface sometimes the PAM spray will help the ice slip out, but if it continues, you may have to replace the tray ( especially if the tray is nylon and the surface is pitted from deposits from the water- replacing the filter at least annually if not every 6 months makes them last longer) if there is no filter to the water supply, get one.

Ice maker suddenly stopped working, KSRP25FN


If you look in the ice tray and see that the grey teflon coating has worn off, you will need to replace the ice maker. When the teflon coating wears off ic causes the ice to stick instead of sliding out easily. This snaps the drive gear on the module, which ruins the ice maker. Very easy to replace, you can order it at this link, http://www.reliableparts.com/product/inv_2198597

Our Whirlpool Refrig GD25DFXFW02 is working fine our problem is the ice maker , the cubes contain white flakes, is there a coating on the ice maker that could be chipping off> We have changed the filter...


The inside coating has come off the inside of the ice maker . The white " flakes " is calcium deposits , sticking to the exposed cast metal , inside the ice maker , and sticking to the cubes , after water freezing in the mold . You need to replace the ice maker .
