Ice maker not filling but getting water at door

My ice maker stopped working but I can still get a glass of water at the door. My hushand checked that the fill line is now stopped up nor frozen. Water should be able to pass through the line. He put an ohm meter to the relay or silanoid(?) part and got reading of 18 on one and 31 on the other. Does this mean we need to just replace the relay or whatever it is called? I know its the part that signals where the water is to go. Please help so that I can have ice before Christmas. Thanks and Merry Christmas to Yall.

Re: Ice maker not filling but getting water at door

First have your hubby pop the white cover off the front of the ice maker. He will see a white gear type wheel. Under the wheel to the left will be a few holes. Take one wire (insulated) from meter and jumper across the two holes one labled "T" and the other labled "H". HOLD... the gear wheel will begin to turn. Hold wire and wait till you hear a "click" sound. Note: look at the little notch-"blue" on the wheel. It should rotate all the way around (2 minute cycle) and come back to its orginal postion where it should fill with water. Rotates and gets stuck= bad ice maker. Rotates around and no fill=replace water valve....GOODLUCK & rate me high please!!!!!!

Water leaking from Icemaker fill tube near the back wall

It probably is not the water valve. More likely it is the ice maker itself. Nothing else in the machine controls the flow of water to the ice maker except the ice maker itself. It is recommended that both the ice maker and the water valve needs to be replaced when trouble such as this.

Not making ice after changing filter.

Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly.

A new filter can take several cycles of the ice maker to fill the filter up with water before. The average filter is around 30 oz and the average ice maker fill cycle is 3.2 oz. The new filter did not have any water in it. The water in the door has a resercoir so the air in the filter will still make the water work until you get air. Drain abour 3 tall glasses from the water in door. The ice maker should then work properly. The filter filters water for water in door (inside) and the ice maker so if you have water inside the door you should have ice UNLESS one of the inlet water valve solenoids has failed. Also make sure the Freezer door / light switch functions properly. The door switch is supposed to stop water and ice functions with the door open.

I would like to know if it starts making ice.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Ice maker not making ice

To check ice makers in general you have to first check there is water which is simply filling a glass from the freezer door dispenser. Next you need to check there is not a frozen fill tube where the water is run through the cabinet into the ice maker.(you should be able to blow through it from the back when you disconnect the line) If it has frozen solid with water, this has to be cleaned of the ice(melted with a hair dryer) Frozen fill tube problem usually caused by water valve not completely shutting off-a drip) May work ok with old valve for a while without replacing also.

The next is to test water valve and ice maker by jumping the thermostat inside the icemaker assembly, there are pins under the cover of the ice maker. If you are this far also check for 120 volts at ice maker. This is general, if you have a ice bin in the door, you have a emitter receiver board which needs to be jumped out. It can get complicated, but you are trying to break down the system components to isolate the problem.

Also remember ice makers generally have a thermostat in them to prevent operation if not down in the zero to fifteen degree range. You can get one of those outdoor liquid filled mercury or alcohol stemmed thermometers to test your freezer temperature before you tear apart your fridge..........

The water control valve for the ice maker side is your most likely reason. If filling ice maker with tap water and allowing to freeze. If it dumps then the water control should fill. if not the valve is not working. Sea Breeze

Whirlpool GS6SHAXMQ Side by Side Refrigerator - Ice Maker Problem

This happened to me after i had to move the freezer and it was unplugged for a while. When it was plugged back in the ice maker would not work.

Assuming both the ice maker itself and the rear water AC solenoid switch are actually not broken and are functional, and you are getting water from front door dispenser, then check the inside supply tube (black) is not frozen and blocked. Check with q-tip or feel to see if frozen.

If supply tube is frozen, thaw by holding up small full clear glass of heated water placing the frozen tube into the heated water. The clear glass will allow you to see when ice slips out.

Next try resetting the freeze cycle. Turn off the ice maker switch, remove the maker by carefully disconnecting the inside power cord. You will need to remove the inside door flap. Rinse the maker with warm water, allow to come to room temp.

Re-install maker, connect power cord. Turn on ice maker switch. Make sure Infrared sensor is not blocked. Now wait for temp change and listen for water to fill tray. It took maybe ten minutes for me. You will be able to hear the water fill with the door closed.

Again, this assumes nothing is actually broken.

This worked for me. Good luck.

Ice maker not workin

ok as far as the water in your door goes sounds like the micro switch is getting a little gummy and sticking this happens when people dump ice in sweet drinks and some splashes up locate the switch and spray a little wd 40 on it as to you ice it is on a separate valve as the water in the door so the water flow don't mean a lot in this case remove the front plastic cover on the icemaker and you will see a bunch of little holes make a jumper wire out #10 or 12 house wire strip about 1/4 inch off the ends an insert in the holes marked t&h this will start a test cycle make sure yuo hold the plastic insulation so you don't get bit if the ice maker starts cycleing remove the wire and watch for it to stop listen for the icemaker valve to open if the ice maker finishes and the valve didnt fill replace the water valves if the icemaker doesnt cycle and yuo may have to kinda twistm the jumper back and forth to get it to make contact depending on the gauge you used then replace the ice maker motor module if you hear the valve open and the ice maker doesnt fill check for a frozen ice fill tube that should do it

Kenmore Refrigerator stopped dispensing water

Look up through the ice despencer on the front door of the freezer. Is the flapper door open? If so it needs to be fixed. If its not then try leaving the freezer door open for 3+ hours to defrost the frozen line in the door. If that doesnt work, the water valve must be changed.(located behind fridge, take off back cord board panel at bottom, the valve is blue)... GOODLUCK!
