Mold growing around ice dispenser area. Cant figure out how to get to the mold .


Pull ice maker out and clean it. Then make sure you have a fresh water filter on water supply. Mold in the freezer is uncommon if its truly freezing inside. You have dirty water coming in.

Ksrp25fnbl00 Ice maker stopped producing ice


ksrp25fnbl00 ice maker has stopped making ice. It appears that the water supply that comes down from the top of the interior cabinet is freezing and this is causing the ice tray not to refill. What would cause this?

Our refrigerator stopped making ice. The water comes out fine. How do we correct this problem?


There are two sides to the water control valve=> WR57X10051 Dual Water Control Valve It's possible the side for the ice maker has failed. Try filling the ice maker with tap water and allow it to freeze. If the ice drops after freezing and the ice maker does not refill this will point to needing replace the WR57X10051 Dual Water Control Valve If the ice maker does nothing then that points to the ice maker itself=> WR30X10093 Ice Maker Assembly I will be here should you have questions, Thanks Sea Breeze

I have a hotpoint refrigerator freezer that works fine except i am having issues with the ice maker. The tube carrying the water to the ice maker goes through a support cup. Water has started freezing in...


Make sure tube is pushed all the way into back wall tight.Then make sure tube angles downward so water completely drains. This is a goofy GE problem.

Ice maker no longer makes ice; water still comes for the filered water outlet but there appears to be no water going to the ice maker;


THE WATER VALVE IN THE BACK IS A TWO PART SYSTEM. EVEN THOUGH YOU GET WATER FROM THE DOOR THE ICE MAKER SIDE OF THE VALVE COULD BE BAD. CHANGE VALVE. B4 YOU SPEND THAT KINDA MONEY--DO A SELF CHECK FIRST--POUR WATER IN THE ICE CUBE TRAY. IF IT FREEZES AND DUMPS THEN CHANGE THEWATER VALVE. IF IT FREEZES BUT DONT DUMP CHANGE THE ICE MAKER.

Maytag MSD2454GRW ice maker won't fill with water. I checked electrical connection. It seems to be secure. Also, water comes out of the door like it should. The ice maker just won't fill with water.


OK, Most times that would be the ice maker when they have an electronic module. Pour water in ice maker trays and let freeze. If it freezes and dumps but does not refill then the water control valve for that side is defective. If the cubes just sit there then for sure ice maker core.Let me know what happens and I will return soon with part numbers and locations, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Funny noises - sounds like it has to do with the ice maker The noises come and go; but, no ice is being made.


There is a tube , from the rear of the freezer , to the ice maker , which freezes closed , not letting water get to the ice maker . When it freezes , it is due to a " seeping " water valve , which means , this valve is not closing completely , letting a drop go thru and freezing in the tube . Replace the water valve ( the piece the wall water line connects to , on the back of the refrig ) . Also , remove the tube ( may have to remove the ice maker , 3 screws ) and defrost the tube .

Whirlpool ice maker makes impure ice but the water is crystal clear and good. replaced filter and cleaned ice maker tray ect.... no change. Is there a way to sanitize the water line to the ice maker?


what you are seeing in the ice is the impurities in you water. you wont see them until the water freezes because you are trying to freeze the "H2O" and not the calcium and magnesium. those are what causes your ice to look cloudy.
filtering the water does help but you cant get perfectly clear ice with this type of an ice maker.
when you see "store bought" ice and it is clear, that is because it is made a different way to prevent the impurities from forming in the ice.
also the longer the ice is in your freezer, the more it will absorb from the air causing even more cloudiness.

Leaking water in icemaker. water from icemaker leaks into freezer and freezes on freezer wall


If you are sure that it's coming from the ice maker I believe that you possibly have a leaking water control valve on the side for the ice maker on the rear of refrigerator near floor there is a dual water valve control. Many times when this happens the water will freeze in the fill tube that fills the ice maker in the rear of freezer. You can defrost the frozen water in the fill tube with a hair dryer but that will not stop the problem from coming back. When that happens water tends to at times go everywhere but the ice maker. You can test the water control valve several ways. By unplugging the side to the ice maker and if water continues to flow slowly to the ice maker then the dual water control valve will need replaced, Sea Breeze

Water is leaking out of ice maker and freezing up where cubes are


Sounds like water valve is not closing all the way after the icemaker calls for water. This is because sediment in water builds up on valve seat therefore letting water pass through. Suggest replacing fill valve. Crescent shaped ice....ice maker on needs 4 ounces to fill icemaker, so any more than that will spill out.
