Question about Whirlpool 25.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with In-Door-Ice Dispensing System

Open Question

Ice maker water chute is frozen.

I have a model ED25QFXHW01 Side by side. The water chute for the ice maker is freezing up. This has happened in the past but I have thawed it with a hair dryer and then it worked fine. The other day, the cubes in the pan were stuck together and there was a frozen "water fall" where the chute enters the ice maker and into the pan. Cleaned everything up. Water dispensed into the ice maker. But the ice maker wouldn't eject the cubes work, the heating element was operating and when I thawed the top with a hair dryer, they ejected. Cleaned it up again and noted that there appears to be water leaking from the chute. The chute froze up again.

SOURCE: ice and water dispenser

Has someone pressed the lock button on the front of the fridge just above the dispenser, next to the crushed & not crushed ice button, if so there is also an unlock button next to it.

remove the bottom tray that you sit your glass on, push down on the bottom of the trim arround the despenser, lift outward then upward on the trim panel, have a piece of duct tape handy to tape the panel out of your way to gain access to the assembly

Kenmore Elite side by side - Icemaker chute freezes up, no ice


Hi,

To make sure I am understanding you correctly, are you saying that after a normal fill, water continues to drip into the ice maker and freezes in the fill chute?? If yes, than replace the water valve.

If not then:

does the flap shut all the way? Sounds like you are drawing moisture from the chute. The flapper should seat so that no air is being drawn in. I have seen a number of these Kenmore where the pin and spring retainer has broken off from the dispensor housing causing this problem. They use to replace the whole freezer door because the dispensor housing is not a servicable part. They have now come out with a kit to address this problem. This is not a fun job for a first timer. You may want to contact Kenmore and inquire about the aforementioned. If this is your case, there is a good chance they will cover it.

Goodluck,
Please don't forget to rate me as fixya..

Ice maker freezing up at water chute.


It's probably the water fill valve seeping which requires replacing that valve on the back of the refrigerator.

The water feed to the ice maker is frozen - I can see that it is plugged with frozen water. I was able to get the frozen water out of the chute that leads to the ice maker but I can still see the ice...


Hi,

This usually means the water inlet valve that feeds the ice maker is bad. It can bypass a small amount of water and that water runs so slow that it freezes in the tube you are clearing.

The valve I am talking about is behind the frig on the bottom, it should be blue in color.

To clear the ice from the tube use hot water and a turkey baster, or a hair dryer.

The part number for the water valve is 4389177

The ice maker is working fine but ice cannot be dispensed because the chute keeps on freezing


The door to the chute is sticking slightly open allowing moisture in an freezing the chute and the door is then frozen open. You will have to disassemble the small door assembly, there has to be an obstruction holding this small door open.

The ice maker is making ice but it doesn't turn to let the ice fall out the chute? It's a GE side by side.


Are you saying that water in ice maker is frozen and it won't turn to drop ice, if so then I/M is bad, if it is dropping ice into the bucket and not droping ice thru the ice shoot on door that is another issure. If that is the case we will need model & serial number of machine.

I have a Jenn-aire JSD2695KES - it is a side by side, a couple of years old with an ice maker. Ice gets jammed in the last ice spot in my ice maker. It has been getting stuck in other spots lately, too,...


That sounds like a frozen over water fill tube due to a leaking water control valve. You may need to pull the ice maker out to see it but what you described is what happens when this happens. If frozen over the water will still come out on some models because there is a split in the top of the fill tube. Or something needs corrected on the amount of water time is OK for your ice maker. let me see if I can find the service manual for your model Be back soon Sea Breeze

The ice maker doesn't work. I can get cold water from the refrigerator so I assume that the line is not frozen. I just changed the water filter to see if that might help but it didn't.


Check the folllowing:

The end of the ice chute inside the freezer compartment that dumps into the ice tray - they can feeze and block water flow.

Remove the water chute and see if the water orifice is frozen. If so, it will block water flow. it can be thawed out with a hair dryer (carefully).

If no luck, look for a bad water valve or possible kink in the water line. This valve is usually located under the back of the fridge behind a cover.

If all ok, there could be an issue with the ice maker itself or on some units, a control circuit board.

Try unplugging the fridge, let it sit for at least 5 minutes and then plug it back in and see what happens.

Ice Maker won't work...water line frozen?


HOLLOW ICE FOLLOWED BY FROZEN WATER CHUTE ARE THE FIRST SIGNS THAT THE WATER INLET VAVLE IS OR HAS FAILED, IT CAN ALSO CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE ICEMAKER BY BURNING OUT THEN TIMING GEAR DUE TO INSUFFIENT WATER OR FLOODING IN ICEMAKER WITH TOO MUCH WATER
