Water in timer keeps running out the hole

When I set the timer it makes a sound like the tube is opening up to allow the water to flow but when I placed the unit on the faucet and turned the water on to wait for the timer to work the water was already on. When the timer reached the time that I set it made the noise like it was opening for the water to flow and that is all. The water stayed flowing out the hole all the time.

Water leak on back wall of my freezer and a hell of noise from my icemaker when on


Water leak and noise are due to wrong temp setting or malfunction of defrost cycking.Keep temp setting between 3 and 5 degree centigrade. Due to over frosting, the freezer fan fan hits over the ice and working to cool fridge compartment.And also check defrost timer, and heaterworking properly to defrost in time. And if your ice maker is making sound, due to:
  • You will hear a buzzing sound when the water valve opens to fill the water reservoir for each cycle.
  • Rattling noises may come from the flow of the refrigerant or water line. Items stored on top of the ice maker can also make noises.
  • The high-efficiency compressor may make a pulsating or high-pitched sound.
  • Water running over the evaporator plate may make a splashing sound.
  • Water running from the evaporator plate to the water reservoir may make a splashing sound.
  • As each cycle ends, you may hear a gurgling sound due to the refrigerant flowing in your ice maker.
  • You may hear air being forced over the condenser by the condenser fan.
  • During the harvest cycle, you may hear a "thud" when the ice sheet slides from the evaporator onto the cutter grid.
  • When you first start the ice maker, you may hear water running continuously. The ice maker is programmed to run a rinse cycle before it begins to make ice.
Hope, it's helpful>

    It is not allowing the water to go through when it says "ready" and I push the button. I have a new coffee in there and the water is filled but it drips slowly out as if it is having trouble (usually a...


    Hey, We had a similar problem. Water just dribbles out if at all. Here is a trick that worked for us. In the K-Cup holder there is a tube that punctures the bottom of the KCup. They give you instructions on keeping that clean. But they dont tell you there is an equally important puncture tube at the top. THis tube usually has 3 or so holes or openings that flow water after the cup is punctured on top. I took a paper clip and pushed in (not too far) on these holes only to find coffee had lodged up there and blocked the hole. I ran a couple times after with just hot water and it works like new.

    When running a cycle the water doesnt shut off causing it to over flow, but the pump is working


    If it fills with water and starts the cycle and the water keeps running in then your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is sticking. It needs replacing.

    If it overflows and don't start the cycle-
    Your pressure switch stops the water and allows it to start the next cycle. It's a switch either in the control panel or at the top of the tub with a small tube connected to it which goes down between the inner and outer tube. As the water level increases the air in the tube is compressed until there is enough pressure to make the switch stopping the water from filling. This tube can get clogged and the switch won't work. Remove the tube and clean it out. Blowing on the tube when it's still connected to the switch will make the switch if it's working and clear.

    My washer keeps filling no matter the size I have


    This sounds like a faulty water level switch. It's a diaphragm-like device with a small plastic tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level increases, so does the pressure on the air in the plastic tube and when it reaches a certain level it activates the switch to shut off the water and signals the timer to start appropriate cycle. Make sure there is no damage to or obstructions in the plastic tube. The switch can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty switch. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

    Freezer defroster


    Hi.
    to stop leaking water from the bottom of ur refrigerator please follow this usefull steps..
    1. Check the hose under your fridge that drains condensation and such into a catch tray. Make sure the hose is draining properly.
    2. Blow air through the tube to make sure it is not clogged. A coat hanger wire can be inserted to break up clogs. An alternative method is to use a bicycle pump to force air through the drain hole to remove any obstruction. Vacuum dust bunnies from under the fridge to allow free flow of the air. Most refrigerators periodically blow warm air across the condensation tray. The warm air dries the condensation in the tray.

    Clogs are usually caused when dust, moisture and micro-organisms get together in the drain tube. Keep the dust vacuumed from the back and bottom of the fridge. Make sure the drain tube is firmly connected at all points. The drain tube can be flushed with chlorine bleach, rubbing alcohol .

    Freezers are designed not build frost withiin but because we open the door for a bit too long, we let room temperature air in. This air contains water vapor. The water vapor condenses on, then freezes to all the walls of the freezer. This process repeats itself every time we allow water vapor to enter; this creates a thin layer of ice you might call frost.
    Avoid putting hot foods into the freezer. Let them cool before putting them into the freezer so humidity from the foods does not cause frost on the coils. Also, if it is a hot, humid day, try to avoid opening your freezer any more than necessary.

    By the way when you have an issue with the defrost system or the timer, thermostat or heating element. You should be able to put it into defrost manually by turning the knob and see if that helps. You may need to do this sevral times as it only stays in defrost for a little over twenty minutes and run cycle for 6,8 or ten hours. If the ice build up is heavy then twenty minutes may not do the trick thus the need for repated defrost cycles. If it does the trick replace the timer. If not check the thermostat and heater element.

    hope this will solve your problem.
    Thanks for contacting fixya.com

    Kenmore Top Mount Refrigerator - leaking water from the Cold Control Defrost Timer/Automatic Defrost Control Housing


    It freezes up for a few reasons. First the water is not running down fast enough. That is why the wire was added to add heat from the heater to the drain hole. The metal pan under the evaporator coil may not be lined up with the drain hole well enough and holding water there. If that looks ok the drain tube that runs down the inside back of the unit might be slightly restricted. Not much you can do about that. I would make sure that the aluminum wire goes in the hole about 2 inches and that the unit is tilted slightly back to help water flow.
