If you follow the water inlet tube into the back of the unit there will be a panel to remove. Take the screws out and slide it out of the way. Continue to follow the tube to the two electric solenoid valves. one valve has a tube that goes to the ice maker. unplug the refrigerator and turn off the water supply. Then remove the water line to the solenoid valve and unplug it. Now you can remove the screws that hold it and it will be free. Replace the valve with a new one and that should get you back in business. New solenoid valves only cost $25 to $40. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Pour about 2/3 cup of water into icemaker . If it freezes and dumps , and water doesn't go into icemaker , replace the water inlet valve ( the piece on the refrig that the wall waterline connects to . If it doesn't dump the water poured into it after freezing , then replace the icemaker .

Ice maker makes ice, but not nearly as much as it used to. What do you suggest. Water flow out dispenser is fine. Filter has been replaced.


I would suggest making sure the coils under the refrig are clean of dust , lint , pet hair , etc . Also , letting the ice build up so it gets closer to the bottom of the ice maker (coldness of the ice will help keep the ice maker cold ) will result in ice maker cycling more often (making ice) .

Cold water dispenser on new whirlpool side by side dispenses lukewarm water...ice maker works a charm


there is a tank in the refrigerator section that hlds about 1.5 gal of water as you dispense it refills and pushes out the cold water. if your unit is new it will need a day to cool down the tank of water before you will get cold cold water at the dispenser
Hope this help explain how it works

GE monogram side by side no ice water dispensed not cold


To actuate the ice maker pull the arm down and it is in the on position.

The water is actually cooled in the refrigerator section. However it is not designed for a continuous flow. It takes time for the heat to be removed between each water draw.

If your refrigerator temperature is not cold enough it will affect the water temperature also. Check the refrigerator compartment temperature with a thermometer.
