HI. This may be as simple as a frozen line, or the actual inlet assembly could be faulty or damaged as well. I would advise to check the water line first. It may have frozen over. If the line is not frozen, move on to the filter. If the filter has reached its full life, it will not allow the passage of water. replace the filter in this case. If you are sure that the filter is still good, move on to the last possible issue. This will be the inlet valve.

The water inlet valve is located behind your refrigerator. Find the water supply line coming into the valve and turn it off at the source (typically under the sink). Disconnect the supply line. Remove the screws that secure the inlet valve in place.

The water inlet valve is connected by two wires. Label the wire placement on the water inlet valve before disconnecting the wires. The wires are connected to the terminals with slip on connectors

Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If the connectors are corroded they should be replaced.

Inspect the filter screen where the supply line connects. Remove any debris or deposits that may have built up using a toothbrush
or warm running water. If you cannot clear the clog, it will be necessary to replace the valve (the filter is not removable on most inlet valves).


Test the water inlet valve for continuity using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X100 (if available, otherwise use the nearest ohm setting). Place a probe on each terminal. The multimeter should display a reading of 200 to 500 ohms. Close inspection of the inlet valve and especially the coil may reveal the exact ohm resistance rating to test for. If the water inlet valve does not pass this test, it should be replaced.

How to fix LG icecube tray 3390JA115A


Hello there,
Fixing the ice cubes tray is quite simple, all you need to do is to hold the ice tray by the edge and gently slide it into the ice tray position. Pull out the drawer and place the ice tray into the freezer.
To make ice cubes, fill the ice tray to the water level and place it in the freezer.
Hope this helped. All the best Elect_Comp

I have a 15 yr old sxd 520sw side by side the ice tray does not fill up but when u fill the tray manualy it throws the ice into the bucket... please help


sounds like everything works you just dont get water to it. so start there check your water lines and make sure you have water going to them. look for a small on off valve running from where the water comes from at the wall or somewhere in the line running to the back of the freezer. make sure it is on. if you check all this and your sure you have water then there must be a clogg in the icecube maker.. i hope this helps..

Kenmore refer #70162990 ice maker leaking into storage tray


Please confirm you have given the complete model number.

If the icemaker has a bail wire to control how much ice is in the bin, there is a fill switch inside the front cover of the ice maker which allows you to increase or decrease the amount of fill.

You may also have a cracked or corroded ice mold. Check by filling the icemaker with water manually, and watching to see if it drips once the initial overfill stops dripping. This would also be indicated by the ice cubes being smaller than usual.

Ice maker overflows


The Icemaker may not be dumping the cubes after they freeze then more water pours in on top of them. The icemaker has a heater which turns the cubes loose and allows them to dump. You may find someone to work on an icemaker, not sure. If this is the case, I would replace the icemaker.

Ice maker stopped working


You won't get many suggestions with such little info. Is your water line connected? Is there water in the icecube tray? Is the auger not rotating?

Ice maker leaking


Sometimes the frozen chunk of ice in the back of your ice tub is caused by the tub being overfilled. The ice cubes pile up so high that they come in contact with the defrost heating element in the bottom of the ice maker. This melts the already formed cubes and form a blob of ice in the rear of the tub.

If the "icicle" is forming even when the tub is relatively empty, then it is probably a leaking solenoid valve. This is an electric water valve that opens and closes according to demand. Like any valve, it has seats that eventually leak, especially in areas with hard water. This will need to be replaced. Water filters go a long way in increases the usefaul life span of the valve and will also improve the ice quality.
