Question about Kenmore Refrigerators

There is a screw on the front of my icemaker (I had to remove the cover) and I think it adjusts the amount of water going into the tray - is this correct, and which way do I turn it if I am getting too much water??

Yes it adjusts the size of the ice cubes. Not sure which way to turn it so I would just go one way and then assess. Good luck P.

Is the water volume adjustable in my icemaker?


It maybe pressure related and not a volume of water problem. You could try to go and turn down the tap at the point the water line is attached to the feed pipe for the line to the ice maker they only need to be open a little say one turn to feed the unit.

I have a Whirlpool refrigerator with an ice maker and when the icemaker is filling with water it leaks from the front of the tray into the ice storage bin.


1. icemaker is not level. (check and re-level)
2. icemaker has a crack in the mold.(replace i/m)
3. Water level set too high.(remove front cover and adjust water level screw counterclockwise)

My icemaker overflows and does not produce cubes but a solid block of ice over the unit and down into the cube reception tray and over the bottom of the freezer unit. Have removed all the ice and restarted...


Hi
you need to adjust the water level, carefully remove the front cover of the ice maker itself.
On the front of the ice maker, there is a small nylon screw that controls the water intake amount.
If the screw is turned to the Right, it will Decrease the amount of water entering the ice maker.
If the screw is turned to the Left, it will Increase the amount of water entering the ice maker.
The screw should only be turned 1/4 of a turn at a time; therefore, more than one adjustment may be required.
The maximum adjustment is one full turn in either direction. Additional rotation could damage the ice maker..
OR
Dirty icemaker water valve or broken valve can cause icemaker to overflow.

Ice cubes stick together as though too much water is coming into tray. Is there a valve or something to control amount of water coming in?


yes their is a water valve , 2 things it could be your valve or you i/m. the i/m tells the water valve to fill for about 6-9 seconds if the icemaker is bad it could be telling it to fill for 10 seconds instead of the normal time and overflow the icemaker ,or the water valve also called solenoid could be bad and at not stopping at the desighned time. i dont have your model # to go much furthur but you can remove the cover in the front of the icemaker and see if you see an icemaker water level adjustment screw, newer ge and frigidaire ref. cannot be adjusted, however wpl, maytag, and older ge ref can be and older frg.try adjusting water level at icemaker first .

The fridge is not making ice but instead water pours out


If water is overfilling the icemaker, and you have an older style icemaker, you can adjust the fill switch on the icemaker.
Pop off the front cover of the icemaker and you will see an adjustment screw attatched to a lever. Adjust the screw so the lever goes toward the - symbol. This will shorten the amount of time the water valve turns on to fill the icemaker. If the lever is centered between the + and - symbols, turn it about 1 turn toward the -. If it is more toward the + side, adjust it to the center. It may take a few adjustments before you get it filling correctly.
If it is a newer style electronic icemaker there will not be any adjustment on it.
If you will post the model number I will try to look it up and see what kind of icemaker set-up you have.

water pressure is fine but is the icemaker getting the right amount of water? the biggest cause of hollow cubes is as you know is low water pressure. another thing is check that the i/m is level allowing water to go all teh way to the head of the I/m. If you can dip your fingers in teh very fron cube mold and verify that water is getting all teh way there.
The sensor for mold temperature is at teh fron housing so that is why its important for water to get there or else it will sense water actual freezer temp instead of water/ice temp.

Hi, My refrigerator icemaker seems to be putting in too much water, is there a way to control the amount of water it gets?


Carefully remove white plastic cover on front of ice maker. On top right you will see a screw mounted sideways and a plus and minus mark on the ice maker. This is the water feed adjustment screw.

Not getting ice


sounds as if the icemaker is getting too much water and causing the unit to flood out. aside from replacing the icemaker you may be able to adj the amount of water going into the icemaker. there is a screw that holds the front cover of the icemaker inplace. remove the cover and you should see a screw  with a + and - sign on it. try turning the screw 1/4 turn then wait for the icemaker to cycle and see if it improves. keep making theses adjustments until your problem is solved thx peyton

Ice maker is leaking small amounts of water.


Is the amount of water to much for the tray size , you can adjust it with the small screw behind the icemaker cover . is the line entering the back of the icemaker jammed up to far causing it to spray ? Or is the icemaker or refrigerator not level

Ice frozen together


you can adjust the amount of water by popping the front white cover off the icemaker and adjusting a screw . depending on the model the screw will be a flat head on the side of the icemaker or a phillips screw on the front of the icemaker.
