Ice maker don't work


They are usually located behind the compressor compartment panel. remove the panel and follow the water line you should see the water valve. If there is a water filter in your unit these can plug up ,and cause no water to enter the icemaker. I alo have had bad icemakers.

How do i make my icemaker work


If it came with the refrigerator then everything is hooked up with the exception of the water line in the back, which if you go to home depot you can ask for a stainless steel icemaker line and they'll get it for you. Then all you have to do is connect one end of the line to the faucet if there is one, and the other end to the valve which is at the lower right or left hand side, normally on the right if your standing behind it. Now if there isn't a water connection behind the fridge your going to have to locate a water supply and then when you get the icemaker line tell them you need a installation kit.

Top of freezer water dripping from icemaker is icing up. Bottom drawers of refrigerator are freezing produce when this happens. Also seems to coincide with no water available from door water dispenser.


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Self-defrosting refrigerators dispose of the water generated during the defrost cycle, usually via a tube or channel that directs the water to a pan at the bottom of the refrigerator. From the pan, the water normally evaporates. If the tube or channel is clogged or obstructed, the water backs up and leaks into the inside of the refrigerator compartment and will start icing up. To fix this problem, clear the drain tube or channel and allow the defrost water to flow down to the drain pan. For this purpose you can use a hair dryer to melt the ice built up.

The leaking around the icemaker occurs when water enters the icemaker mold too quickly. It then splashes over the front of the icemaker. You will see puddles of ice on the feeler arm or icicles flowing over the front of the icemaker. There are three potential leak paths. In order to prevent further leakage around the feeler arm, follow the process outlined below:--

1) Replace the old fill cup with a new fill cup. The new fill cup has a water diverter added to slow the flow of the water when it enters the icemaker mold. The fill cup does not fit the GSH and ESS Energy Star models.

2) Install a mounting bracket spacer. IMPORTANT NOTE: It is extremely important that the icemaker is level in all directions, front to back AND side to side. It will be necessary to shim the icemaker mounting bracket to raise the front of the icemaker to obtain the required front to back level. It will not affect the operation of the icemaker to have a slight backward tilt. Install the mounting bracket with the spacer in place. Make certain that the spacer is between the rear case wall and the bottom left hole of the bracket

3) Adjust the refrigerator. It is very important to make certain that the refrigerator case tilts back at least 1 degree or approximately 1/2 bubble on the level.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

No longer making ice. no sound coming from the motor if it is trying to make ice.


Hi lots of things to check.

1) are you getting water at door ? - if so water is on and filter is not blocked or installed backwards.
2) this does nor rule out the solinoid because it has two sides one for water and one for ice. ( we will come back to solinoid)
3) Is the ice maker swich turned on ? located inside freezer door to the right of the icemaker looks a bit like a wire coat hanger grab it and push it up for off or down for on ( you should hear a click)
4) Is you fill tube blocked with frozen ice ? located inside freezer door at back of ice maker, looks like a plastic hose going through the back wall at an up hill angle. if so heat it up with a hair drier to melt ice. or pull part out from back of fridge and soak in hot water.
4) Check control board. (This was my problem)Turn off power, open freezer locate a white plastic square cover with sides about 6 inches long, located at front of icemaker prise out the plastic button located on the right side with a flat screwdriver pull white cover off, ( check power is off) look at wheel behind cover if you see any melted parts then this is your problem. remove three screws and pull wheel and front panel towards you it will come away. dont turn wheel by hand - if you need to line up spline turn part in ice maker instead, also note on - off switch ( wire coathanger thing attaches to this ) Top right. sounds harder than it is. sniff part, can you smell a burnt out smell if so order a new part on line. ( this part controls all the action. turns water solinoid on to fill tray, tips tray etc,
5) water solinoid has had it, located at back of fridge behind cardboard, water line from wall attaches to this as does water line to cold water and water line to ice maker, this is a double solinoid so it is posable for ice to work and not cold water or vice versa, turn off water and power remove part and take to your electrical part supplier for testing and or replacment.

The water coming out of the water dispenser in our GE Profile PSC25PSWA fridge is hot--hot enough to take a bath in. We don't know why the water is suddenly not being cooled and think this is causing...


Is this a new fridge that was recently installed? Because the only thing I can think of that could be causing hot water coming out of the water dispenser is either the installer/tech hooked up the fridge water inlet line to a hot water line somewhere.

Either that, or there is so much extra plastic water line running around in back and/or bottom of the fridge, that the water in the line is getting heated up by being in contact with the condensor coils or the compressor, etc.

No doubt, this is an interesting situation and some more background will likely be needed to get to the source of the problem, especially since you didn't mention any problems with cooling in the fridge or freezer.

Hope this was Very Helpful and let us know some more info, if my basic hunches aren't the problem. Best regards!

Ice maker not producing any ice.


Pour about 1/2 cup of water into icemaker . Squeeze the black fill tub which is above the icemaker cup . If ice apears to be in it , this indicates that the weter valve is not completely closing , letting a drip ocasionally go thru and freezing inside the tube , ( water valve bad ) . that will be a different solution . If the icemaker dumps the cubes after freezing . and black tube is not frozen , replace the water inlet valve . If the icemaker does not dump the ice after frozen , replace the icemaker ( only 1 screw holds the icemaker in , located on rear portion on right , faceing down . Also check the icemaker rake , which should be about the 2:30 position . To thaw out the black tube (which runs thru the top of the refrig ) a 1/4 push on connector will be needed . Remove the icemaker and use a hairdryer aimed up into the hole . Cut the tubing to the fill tub behind the fridge about 9 inches from where it enters the top of the fridge . This will let warm air inside the top fill line to help thaw . Ocassionally blow thru the 9 inch tube until you can blow thru it . May take a day or 2 , depending how frozen the line is . Once air will go thru , install the push on connector to couple the cut lines back togather .

The blinking red light on the right side , is the receiver for the electric eye for cutting off the icemaker when the door bin is full , This blinking is normal . 2 blinks ...pause...2 blinks..etc .

Do not replace the filter if water flow is good thru the dispensor .

Icemaker not working


Check the water inlet located at the back of the fridge.

Try using an hairdryer or defrosting the unit completely , this often get rid of blockage caused by frozen lines fixing the problem.

The water lines can also be unblocked from dirt using a thin flexible shaft. This after defrosting.

If all that does not fix the problem, then you may need to replace the water valve, the icemaker solenoid, or the whole icemaker assembly.

A  new tub installed and splice to existing dispensor feed line fixed probelm.

Kitchenaid superba icemaker leaking/freezing in freezer section


Your water hose that connects to the back of the freezer may be loose. Move the fridge out away and in the back make sure it is tightend.


Let me know if it helped :)
