Really sound to me that the water control valve is defective and will not close. Pull refrigerator away from wall and on the water control side for the ice maker disconnect the two wires. If the water continues to flow the valve is stuck open and will need to be replaced. Let me know, Sea Breeze

If it won't freeze the cubes that because the freezer section is not cold enough to freeze them. the ice maker itself dose not have any cooling in it. it all comes from the freezer. sounds to me like there may be a problem with the ice maker and it may need to be replaced.

Ice maker not making ice. There is no jam and all swithes are in the on position. I think a hose has disconnected, where can I find the hose to check it

Icemaker not working: Check the shutoff arm, the shutoffarm fails to move upward when the ice bucket is full. Check the water pressure. If thereis not enough pressure, the ice maker will not have enough water to make ice.Ifwater flow pressure is good, check solenoid valve activate and also it'scleaned. Locate your ice maker, remove theice bucket. Pull the cover off the end of the ice maker. Locate the holes "V"and "L". Take a paper clip (jump clip) and tape. Straight the clip and put tapein middle. Hold the taped side and insert the clip into "V" and "L". This sendsthe power to water valve. If water goes into ice-maker, water valve is good. Ifnotreplace solenoid. Check thefreezer temperature. The proper freezer temperature should be around 5 degrees.The warmer it is in the freezer, the more difficult it is to make ice. thanks,helpful?

Ice maker water keeps running

Please keep in mind that I am attempting to diagnose a problem with your appliance without being there and with very little information.
My first guess is you will need to replace the water valve. How fast is the water coming out. If it's a trickle, you have a bad water valve. If it is flowing as hard as it flows when the ice maker calls for water,
there could be a problem with the switch inside you ice maker is bad and continues send a signal to the valve to keep sending water. You can check this by unplugging the ice maker from inside the freezer and if the water valve stops sending water. You will need to replace the part inside the ice maker or replace the whole ice maker.
Please rate solution
