Yes .. that is a stuck fill valve ... there are two valves located at the bottom behind the refrigerator .. these are solonoid operated valves so they have some wires connected .. the water first comes in to the water filter in the refrigerator, then a hose goes down to the valve assembly .. you may have to take off a cardboard panel to see them ... you can try tapping on the valve while turning the icemaker on and off .. (to see of you can get it to click) ... if you cant free it then you have to replace the valve assembly ..

Ice billed up in and around ice dispencer even when ice maker is off.


You don't mention a brand or model. All ice makers and chilled water dispensers must have a household water supply. This is controlled by water valves (much like a washing machine) that turns the water flow on and off as needed. If you've cleaned out the ice maker compartment, cleared away all ice build up and the icing problem recurs (usually over a period of days) then the water valve is leaking which lets water dribble into the ice maker compartment forming the ice. You can prove this by shutting off the water supply to the refrigerator (or even disconnecting it.) A new water valve should solve the problem.

Kenmore coldspot ice maker not working


check to make sure the water hasn't frozen in the tube that it should fill the tray with. Please let me know if this isn't the problem and I can further assist you. If frozen, you should thaw out the freezer to get it working again.

Good luck

I have a Maytag side by side w/ ice and water dispencer. Have been having intermittent problems with unit not dispencing water and not making ice(water not filling in to ice tray)unit is now making ice but...


YOU COULD HAVE A BAD WATER VALVE OR YOUR TANK IS CLOGGED UP AND STOPPING THE WATER FLOW THROUGH THE LINES. MOST MODELS HAVE A TANK IN THE BACK OF THE SHELVES ON THE REFRIGERATOR SIDE DOWN AT THE BOTTOM. IT WILL BE LOCATED BEHIND A PANEL YOU WOULD HAVE TO REMOVE SHELVES AND SCREWS TO GET TO IT BUT FIRST CHECK VALVE SOME SYSTEMS HAVE MULTI VALVES WHERE ON CONTROLS THE ICE MAKER AND THE OTHER ON THE DISPENSER.

It's not making ice. It's not even getting the water flow in order to make ice but the water dispencer is dispencing water.


If it will kick a batch out if you add some water to it then your water valve needs replacement. if it has ice in it but wont spit any out then your ice maker is bad. Some nice repair pictures: HERE

Ice maker not working


Cause could be the solenoid valve which controls water flow into the ice maker.

Could be bad solenoid, bad relay for solenoid, clogged solenoid valve, corroded electrical connections, etc.

More info? Let me know...

ICE MAKER NOT WORKING PROPERLY. ICE WILL FREEZE


See if the fill tube is partially blocked with ice. It's the tube where the water comes into the ice maker.
The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

A strainer before the inlet valve can also get stopped up restricting flow.

Will not dispence ice, crushed or solid cubes, will dispence h2o


Hi

If the ice maker has completely stopped producing ice Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

and if the ice maker is producing ice poorly When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve.

First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.

Icemaker


Do you hear it trying to draw water into the ice tray? If so, there might be an internal problem you can't fix yourself. especially since the fridge is dispencing water. Is the arm inside the ice maker pushe down? This is what tells the ice maker to fill and make the ice.

Let me know if this helps.
