Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

I just moved and trying to hook up the icemaker/water dispenser. I see a tubing that goes from the top of the frig to the bottom, but there is no line that comes out to hook into the wall. I do not even see a place for a line to hook into the frig. Can I get an explanation or a diagram? The manual only says there is a separate diagram to hook up the icemaker.

    Was the icemaker hooked up at the location you moved from?

Yes, it was hooked up at the last location, but I wasn't the one who put installed the frig, and the movers disconnected it, so I don't know how it was done.

If I connect plastic tube to back of fill tube shouldn't I be able to blow freely thru it? how do I remove the filler tube that goes thru back of frig to the icemaker?


Line to Ice maker is probably frozen due to long term "inactivity". I run hot water through a small flex tube and a plunger feed device or a Drugstore Syringe recommended by dentists to cope with tooth extraction. I used it for frozen dispenser line. It should work for your Ice maker fill line.

Ice maker won't work


Your inlet tube that goes to the icemaker may be frozen. To Check: Shut off water supply to Fridge, disconnect the water line that goes to the icemaker at top back. Use a flexible item to insert in the water line connection. I used a zip tie. If the flexible item won't all the through to the ice maker, the line is frozen. Thaw out the tube from inside the freezer with a hair dryer. Re-connect everything, you now have ice . . . Solution #2: You may have to replace your "Water Inlet Valve" located at bottom right rear of Fridge. Easy to do, just follow the color codes, be sure and shut off the water.

Replace selenoid and water is still not going to ice maker


Did you pour about 2/3 cup of water into the icemaker and did it dump ? If you did pour water into the icemaker , and it did not dump the cubes , then the icemaker is bad . If it did dump , so you replaced the water valve , then the fill tube directly at the icemaker is frozen with ice . It will need to be removed ( fill tube at icemaker ) and the ice cleared out by hot water . On some models , behind the refrig , 2 screws hold the fill tube in place . Remove the tube , and clear the ice . When reinstalling , have someone guide it from inside the freezer , to where it mounts on the icemaker fill cup .

Water not going into icemaker. Water dispenser works fine.


Check the water valve at the back of the fridge if present.

Even if you used blowdryer, ensure that linse are not frozen by performing a complete defrost.

Disconnect water lines from icemaker, and blow with compressor if the above did not work.

Not getting water from the plastic valve to the icemaker (Have water from the bottom of frig to the valve) --- any ideas? by the way the thing on the icemaker is flipped down so that is not the solution.


#1 Defective switch or thermal fuse in Icemaker not sending voltage to the valve.
#2 Defective water inlet valve
#3 Frozen fill tube to Icemaker (the tube that goes through the back wall and feeds the icemaker)

WATER AND ICE INSIDE MY FRIG


Most likely whats happening is you have a frozen drain for the defrost cycle. here are step by step instrutions for repair
  • Unplug refrigerator
  • unload food from freezer
  • remove icemaker if present (there are 3 screws remove the one on the bottom and loosen the 2 on top of icemaker then lift it off the 2 screws unplug from wiring harness)
  • remove 2 screws holding rear cover in place
  • move cover to the side or remove from unit altogether
  • defrost any and all ice from bottom of freezer and aluminum drain pan that is now exposed
  • flush drain hole that you will see once ice is cleared with warm water. (sometimes I use a large syringe or turkey baster to forcefully flush hot water thru the drain tube)
  • reassemble in reverse order

These are general instrutions for most top freezer refrigs. but if you need more specific directions dont hesitate to ask Thanks Peyton

No water coming down tube in kenmore ice maker


Hi!!! make sure your icemaker filling tube is not blocked with ice.its where the water comes into the icemaker .it can freez on you.put a hair dryer on to the filling tube and icemaker for 30 minutes. Also you can jump start the icemaker by putting a jumper wire show in this picture .If no ice then go to the back your frig and change your water valve ..

GE older ice maker won't make ice


pull the cover of the front of the ice maker. there should be directions as to what way to turn the main gear (use a philips screw driver). advance the ice maker until it starts to run on its own. if water comes in at the end of the cycle then you need a new ice maker. if no water comes in check to make sure the fill tube is not frozen. if it is clear replace the water valve.

Good Luck,
Todd
