Ice maker problems

The ice maker tray refills with water before the existing ice has dropped out, causing the water to overflow into the bin below. This causes the ice to clump together, and it won't cycle through the door.
The water also drips out of the bin and all over the food below. I varified that the tray was level and that the temp in the freezer was correct.
I found some ice build up in the fill tube and removed it. However the problem is continuing.

    I replaced the ice maker, but I still have the problem. I am now looking at the water valve to see if it's opening improperly.

  • Scott Krieger Jan 06, 2008

    I metered the heater and it's 71.6 ohms, spec sheet says 72, so I think it's ok. For whatever reason, the water fills a second time every few cycles, causing it to overflow.

    I just replaced my ice maker in my whirlpool, worked great for 2 weeks and this morning I found my frz door wouldn't open, I pulled a little harder and found the inside full of frz water all over the food below. The ice cubes stuck in the top of the ice maker were very small, as if they had melted. I've turned off the icemaker, and the frz so to defrost the ice so I can removed the food below and turn it back on to see what it does.

The heater on the ice maker has gone bad the easiest way to fix is to replace ice maker.the heater is on the bottom of the maker and heats tray up to harvest ice if it dont the ice will stick.But try taking maker out and cleaning it real good with a light spongee (Scrubee)
let it dry then spray some a light coat of pam (or similar) into ice bins and try that ahrd water will eat the coating off the bins

Ice maker overfills the ice tray, ejecting large block of ice instead of individual cubes.


What is your model number? Sounds like you may need a new icemaker. Sometimes when the icemaker motor goes bad it causes the icemaker to keep filling even though it hasn't kicked out the ice in there. Also, are you sure there isn't 2 valves on the refrigerator?

Too much water at refilling of trays causes an overflow and a big blob of ice which clogs the mechanism.What is my problem?


If the tray is not emptying completely, this would cause an overflow. If the tray is emptying ok, I would suspect the solenoid valve that opens to supply water to the ice maker.

The ice cube tray in the automatic ice maker overfills with water. After the ice dumps, the water for the refill overflows the tray and some goes in the dump bin.


Good day,
Sounds like a bad water valve located in the rear bottom of the machine. (not shutting down properly).
Solution is to replace the valve.
In extremely rare cases it can be a faulty ice maker.
The ice maker sends power to the water valve for 7 seconds on each cycle. If the circuit board in the ice maker malfunctions, it could cause this problem.
But again, very rare.

Model ed22dqxaw10 - water enters the ice maker


If the water enters as if it were on a timed basis it would be clear that your ice maker either needs rebuilt or replaced. All signals are sent to the water control valve from the ice maker. The ice maker if working properly will begin its cycle when the thermostat tells the icemaker to begin by heating the elements below the ice maker to warm slightly to loosen the ice from their ice slots. After that any confusion would be in the front of the ice maker to tell the water to come on before the ice maker emptys its ice and begins a 7 second refill of water. If you would like to rebuild your ice maker click HERE and enter your model number ED22DQXAW10 then click on photo 11 ice maker on left of screen.

Ice maker overfills and leaks into the ice bin.


I have had a similar problem several times. What I have found is that the ice tray coating has begun to flake off. Then, the ice sticks or partially dumps. Next more ice builds up and when the valve opens the water runs over the partially emptied tray and spills into the bin making "icebergs". The remedy is to replace the tray or if that is not possible, then, the whole icemaker. In fact, I have one down stairs to put in tomorrow. They don't seem to last more than about 4 years or so.

Ice bucket/bin frozen in place


mine was overfilling because the ice was getting stuck on the way out. So some stayed in the tray and when the water would refil, it would overfil and go over the stuk cubes. leaving it to overflow to the bottom and freeze like yours.

Ice Maker Overflowing


i would recommend changing the water valves as they may be sticking or leaking now you can take the icemaker loose get a small baby bottle short the terminals to cycle water fill catch it with the bottle and see how much water it dumps should be about 4 ounces if the valve leaks will over fill the ice maker over a period of time say the valve is leaking a few drops at a time and the bail arm has the icemaker shut off because its touching ice in the bin but the water just keeps dripping down the fill tube till it runs over did you replace the whole icemaker or just the motor module

If you pop the front cover off the ice maker you will find a screw with a plus and minus on it. Adjust it and that will cut the water fill down and should solve the overfill problem.If the ice is not dumping spray the tray with Pam and that should solve the dump problem.
