Hi Jeff, Had same problem. Turned out that the fill tube for the ice cube tray had filled with ice. I solved the problem by removing the tube from the back and letting warm water thaw the ice. Reinstalled and it works fine. You may also want to try a blow dryer while still in the freezer, but that may take some time. Good luck, Jim

My Ice maker doesn't make ice anymore


90% of ice maker problems are water related. Sounds like water may be continually seeping in from the inlet water valve (normal thing to do if the water level is low). This will not allow the water to get down to freezing temperature. You have to identify the reason that water is constantly running in. It's probably "leaking" out at the dump valve. Or does that unit have a float valve that may be leaking. Check your drain to see if water is leaking out during the freeze cycle.

Leak from freezer into refridgerator, near the back.


You did not mention what Model and Make it is. That could change a fix.

Just a generic fix, assuming the unit its not too new, the first thing you want to do is turn the water off that is feeding your ice maker. Behind the refer on the wall. Be careful to not kink the water pipe pulling out and putting back the refer during your repair.

If stopping the leak into the refer was accomplished by turning off the water, now your confronted with how old is the refer and is it worth digging around and finding the actual leak. If the leak is in the wall of the refer (not the house wall), basically, just forget it, live with it and buy some ice trays. If you want the ice and it is really old, you may want to take this opportunity to replace the unit.

This would be my first assessment, not knowing age, make and model number. Sorry, wish I could be more helpful.

kindly,

Jim

My ice machine model f-450 mah makes ice but once it's full the water keeps running and runs out of the machine how do I fix this?


Make sure the plug in the water tray is secure and not allowing water to drip out. Check to make sure the float turns off the flow water once up to level.

Kenmore Coldspot Model 57577791 S/S Ice Maker Problem


Probably the solenoid (electric valve that opens when the ice maker calls for water ) is leaking and has to be replaced (it's a very common problem ) . To be sure the solenoid is the problem , turn off the ice maker by raising the arm up , and check after a few hours if is any water in the ice tray , if yes the solenoid is leaking , if not , the ice maker control board has a problem , and to replaced it will cost you almost as a new ice maker.

Ice maker water leak in freezer. 8 yr old Amana std freezer on top, water actively leaking from ice maker into bin. Is it worth repairing?


Probably the solenoid (electric valve that opens and let the water from the supply line go into ice maker when It calls for it) is leaking and needs to be replaced ,it's not an expensive job. To make sure this is the problem ,shut of the ice maker by putting up the lever and wait a few hours and look inside the ice maker , if is water inside ,that's the problem ,if not the ice maker is the problem and has to be fix or replaced ; but is better to replace it ,won't be a big diference in cost.

I have a Kenmore side/side with water dispenser and ice maker. Ice maker is not making ice, but I still get water. Every once in awhile I see a puddle under fridge (a large puddle). When I pull the fridge...


Hi TJ,

It'll cost around $65.00 to take care of this problem. The problem is the water inlet valve. The part number is 4389177 and can be picked up at your local appliance parts retailer or you can get one online maybe for a better price (just plug the part number into your favorite search engine).

Here's what's happening... The valve I mentioned is actually a "dual coil" unit. One coil supplies the cold water, the other feeds the ice maker. These "coils" are independant of each other, so one coil can fail and the other can keep on truckin', no problem. But what you have is an Ice Maker coil/valve that is weak and it's allowing water to bypass.

Basically the IM valve isn't closing shut completely. Imagine a dripping faucet... that's what it's like except you can't hear the drops, you can only see the results. Imagine drop by drop rising up that tube behind the fridge and into the IM. One drop at a time. These drops of water go into the freezer compartment through the IM fill tube. Now when these little ***** drops slide down the fill tube inside the freezer compartment they flash freeze before they reach the IM. One drop after another... drip drop drip drop. All these little droplets of water eventually form a glacier inside the fill tube. 

OK, now we're at the point of glatiation. The fill tube (just behind the ice maker) has completely frozen solid. Now... when the IM "calls" for water to refill itself, the (failed) valve opens up and lets full pressure through. But where is this water/pressure going to go? The pressure builds inside the 1/4" water line until it can't handle it any more, the pressure looks for the path of least resistance. That path is the connection that you found loose. It blew out because the fill tube (into the freezer) is blocked with ice and the reason it's blocked is because the valve isn't shutting off completely.

That's alot of words to say this... it's an easy fix. Get the valve (above). Pull the fridge out. Unplug it. Turn the water off at the wall. Remove the water line going into the valve and set aside. Remove the cardboard panel. Remove the 2 screws holding the valve to the fridge. Pull the valve out. Note the electrical and tubing connections carefully. Get your new valve out and install the electrical and tubing just like the old one. Then rebuild, turn on the water and look for any leaks (use a flashlight and take a minute or two here... finding a leak now will save you alot of misery later). Replace the cardboard and plug it back in.

There ya go! Your first major appliance repair job done successfully? Priceless.

Ice Maker in door of freezer-ref combo.


The ice maker has a float or full detection device that shuts the water off when trays are full. If you are sure this is where the water is coming from, then that's it.
