the problem is most likely the water valve behind the machine. it is closing too slow and letting too much water flow into the icemaker. c30b276.jpg

You don't do it from the back. You probably don't want to defrost the whole freezer, so just warm the supply tube with a hair dryer. When the water melts and starts running out, it will then be loose enough to pull free from the aluminum tube it is covering. Remove the aluminum tube, too, and make sure there is no ice all the back to where the water enters (this will be from the white plastic piece on the back).

Now..... why did it freeze? Most likely, there is a restricted airflow to the back of the unit, which is need to keep that aluminum supply tube just warm enough to assure all the water flow OUT of it into the icemaker, and doesn't freeze up on contact. Make sure your coils and the airspace under the fridge are completely clean (vacuuum them well) and it should cure the problem.

Cant remove ice bin kitchenaid


This is an ice freeze up in the mechanical release mechanism. Leave the door open for a few minutes. But if you are impatient like me, warm the area with a hair drier for about 20 - 30 seconds, and you should be good-to-go.

Our Kenmore side by side refrigerator ice maker makes ice but when we press the ice dispenser lever there is no sound and no ice comes out.


If your refrigerator has an ice dispenser, you are probably used to getting ice right away when a lever or button is pressed. However, if you depress the ice maker button and nothing dispenses, there is an issue with your refrigerator. There are a few different reasons why an ice dispenser would suddenly not work. It is important to troubleshoot your refrigerator first to determine the problem. Some problems can be fixed at home, while others must be repaired by a professional

1 Remove the ice bin from the freezer and press the button on the front of the refrigerator for cubed ice.
2 Open the freezer door and hold down the switch on the door, which "tricks" the freezer into thinking the door is closed, and push the lever or button to dispense ice. The motor behind the ice bin should turn. If it does not, this means the motor is frozen.

3 Remove the motor, following the directions in your refrigerator's manual. Heat and dry out the motor with a hairdryer until the motor turns again, then reinstall the motor according to the manufacturer's directions.

Ice Bin or Chute
1 Remove the ice bin to see if it is overloaded. Ice bins that are too full can cause new ice being produced to back up and cause blockage. If this is the case, dump out the ice and rinse out the ice bin with hot water until any blockage is melted.

2 Examine the separator that divides the ice storage bin from the ice dispenser for holes. If the separator has a hole or is cracked, it must be replaced.

3 Watch the flap on the ice dispenser as you hold down the door switch and simultaneously press the button to dispense ice. If the flap does not close all the way, check for ice blockage and gently remove it. If there is no blockage, the flap will need to be replaced.

Hope this tips would help.

Have a nice day!

Ice guide seems to be broken, how can i remove the cover to access on mod. ed22tqxfnoo.. what will it take to replace it ?? t


I have a Whirlpool side-side freezer-refrigerator model ED22TQXFNOO. When I try to use the ice dispenser in the door. nothing happens. No noise as if the motor is turning the spiral gear to push the ice to the end of the storage bin so the ice will drop in the shute to be dispensed. I cleaned out the storage bin for any build up of frozen chucks of ice. The storage bin is all the way in. There's plenty of ice, but it won't dispense.
(1) Is there a Micro switch in the lever I push to signal the motor to turn?
(2) What inergizes the switch in the back that lifts the bar to let the ice fall into the ice dispenser?

Just got it in May, can't remove ice bin. Tryed blow dryer and warm water still can't remove


For Kenmore and whirlpool -- I actually did this twice - neither time was pretty so I can't guarantee it will work for you. As best as I can tell the infamous blue button (or tab) on the right side of the bin controls a long blue plastic slider that runs along the back of the bin bottom and is supposed unseat 2 plastic tabs when pushed in (we all know how we'll that works!). First I pull the blue button (tab) all the way out. Then I slide a long thin piece of metal (in my case a bread knife) in along the back of the bin under the blue plastic slider (which of course being under the bin you can't see). Then I put upward pressure on the blue slider by pushing down on the knife handle (like a lever). After several attempts (if you are lucky) the right tab will unseat and the bin will be loose but probably not free. At this point I was able to put strong upward pressure while rocking right and left and the back tab gives way (if you are lucky). Obviously plastic is involved and breakage is possible - only attempt if you are ready to take a sledge hammer to it as I have been!

Ice auger not working


normally someone has removed the bin to empty the ice or it was pulled out a little by accident. Try removing the bin and make sure that no ice is jaming the auger motor try turning the auger by hand. Hold down on the door switch and have someone push the demand buttom for ice and see if the motor turns. If it does reinstall bin. If it doesnt make sure ice has not blocked it. reinstall bin and try the ice button. hope this helps if this doesnt fix it the drive motor has went out.

In door water and ice cube not working


Water dispenser is a simple touch switch in door energizing a solenoid water valve behind ventilation grate above refrigerator. Water tube runs down into and ends at ice dispenser chute. Should hear solenoid click at top of fridge when activate water touch switch. Can unhook discharge side of solenoid valve temporarily to prove water output. If water dispenser tube acts blocked it could be frozen where it ends-look up the hole at the bottom of refrigerator control buttons.
Ice maker is totally different system. No clicking when push ice button but ice in bulk tray may mean the simplest of malfunctions: Ice bin not pushed in the last half inch if ice auger not lined up with drive pegs. There are hidden switches behind ice bin that need to be engaged or nothing will happen in the ice maker: no auger noise, no clicking, no new ice making. Ice bin will be flush with sheet metal if it is in the right spot. Also plastic juice rack won't hang properly if ice bin not pushed in all the way.

Ge ice maker


Sound like the auger motor behind the ice bin is not turning. Pull the ice bin out and you will see to metal fingers with bolt in the center can you turn this clockwise by hand? If not the motor is likely frozen you can pull auger assembly out by removing 3-4 screws unplug the harness then take to counter and warm up motor with your hair dryer until you can turn motor by hand. then reinstall
