Model GD5PHAXLB01 Ice Maker

My ice maker is making ice but excess water is dripping down the right side. The lite is blinking red once and then again when the flapper is depressed and held. I have replaced the inlet valve and that did not fix the problem. I tried to take the ice maker out but am unsure on how to accomplish this. I recently thawed it and as I said replaced inlet. Have ice but leak occuring somewhere.

    If this is the case, is it better to buy a new ice maker or repair in your opinion? Is this something easy to get to? And lastly where could I find how to remove the ice maker itself? Thanks!

Probably the dual valve (solenoid) is leaking and overflood the ice maker.

    To replace the ice maker take out the screwunder the ice maker and the other two on top of it on the side wall of the freezer and pull out the white plug (before do any work , always unplugged the refrigerator).

In general, if there's a leak at the valve that allows water into the ice-maker, the slow drip causes the line to freeze up. You might be able to use a hair dryer to thaw out the line within the freezer and get it flowing again. Also make sure that the lever that shuts off the ice-maker when full, is in the "down" position.

Ice maker sotp making ice / red light blinking


J, As you open the freezer door the LED on the right should flash 2X with a pause repeatedly. When you hold the left side emmiter down the light should stay on steady. If you have this, you know the optics are good unless the ejector blades are not home. First thing to check is where the ejector blades on the ice maker are parked. They should be resting in the 2:00 position. If they are not, you could have a broken module. If they are in the 2:00 positon the next thing to check would be the fill tube. You want to make sure it is not frozen over. You can disconnect it from the back and see if you can blow through the line or visually inspect it. If all of the above mentioned check out, jump start the ice-maker. Remove the quarter inch screw holding the harness cover on the right side. Remove the harness cover. Pull the ice-maker straight out but be carefull not to smash the emmitter flap on the left side. Leave the harness connected. Get a jumper wire with the ends stripped apout a 1/4 inch. Unplug the refer and place the jumper in test holes T&H. Leave the jumper in and place the ice maker on the shelf where you can close the door. Close the door and plug the refer back in. Wait 30 seconds and open the door. The ice maker should be cycleing. Pull the jumper and place the module cover back on. Put the ice maker back in the rails. It should fill at approx the 12:00 position. Let me know how you make out. Catriver.

I have model #TFX25PRYAWW. Ice maker is not filling with water. Water still operates through door dispenser.


NUMBER 800 is your water valve. It has 2 solenoids. One for water and one for ice. I suspect your ice solenoid is on the blink. It could also be dripping slowly like a faucet and clogging like a stalagmite the ice maker fill nozzle. The only other thing in the ice box that controls that water valve is the ice maker itself. if the water valve is ok then the ice maker ain't getting the power to that water valve solenoid.

Excess water delivered to ice maker


That will depend on type of ice maker and model number of refrigerator. At times the water control valve will stick because of age or just leaking while off like a dripping faucet. Can you find model number of your whirlpool? I do have some repair manuals for ice makers if they are not the electronic type. Sea Breeze

Ice maker is not making ice


Even though the water dispenser is OK you need to make sure the tray(s) in the ice maker are filling. The filter valve, located to the rear of the ice maker can freeze over and stop water flow. Check the supply line for the ice maker, it may be separate from the water dispenser.

Model KSRS25FGWH01-water is dripping inside the freezer ice bin.


If it overfills and drips, look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water.

If it continuously drips, replace the water inlet valve on the back where the house water supply comes in.

Water coming from ice maker freezing down back wall of freezer

Ice maker freezing up


The problem is in the water valve.
The water supply line going to the Ref is connected to a water valve. This valve is not shutting off completely which causes water to drip into the ice maker. This dripping will freeze and eventually completely block the fill tube in the freezer.
