Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

The ice maker cycles through correctly and freezes well I am having a problem with it is putting too much water in the maker and it is spilling throughout the refrigerator. I guess my question is what regulates the amount of water put into the icemaker?

    I will give this a try and appreciate the input. I didn't get nearly this much help when I sat on hold with the Sears service dept.

Hi,

On most of the refrigerator, there is always a water adjustment screw. If you remove the white cover off of the front of the ice maker there is white water fill adjustment on the right side turn it clockwise to decrease water fill time

You could also check the Water Valve.The water valve is located on the back of the fridge. It is behind the lower back panel where the house water hooks up to the fridge.

Let me know, if the problem persists.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Water pooling and freezing on bottom of freezer compartment. Where is it coming from??


If you have an ice maker in there it could be that there is too much water entering the tray and the excess spills out. OR the drain that gets rid of melted ice during the auto defrost cycle could be clogged and the water stays in freezer, pools and refreezes.

Water is going into the ice tray but once it freezes the cubes dont come out when the assembly rotates. When it cycles again to get more water the water spills into the dispenser & eventually the tray


can b one or two things wrong here
(1) how sure are u that water is not just continuously flowing into tray (at low rate) ??? reason I ask is a leaky solenoid valve is a very common failure on ice makers
(2) is arm that rotates thru ice tray ,not obstructed by anything ? ive seen Frozen pizza's hold a swing arm down and not allow it to raise to shield the ice tray in a dumping cycle (im speaking of "hold" arm ! thin steel arm that raises up in a ice dump cycle )
(3) of course could be a defective ice maker as well ? theres lots of motors and gears and switches inside there that could malfunction and prevent it from working

My ice in ice maker melted then frozen again..ice maker not making ice. how do i remove the ice bulid-up in the tray and how do i reset the ice maker to produce ice?


First, clean out ice in ice bin by removing bin and rinsing water over it to melt ice. The remelting and freezing of your ice is probably not to refreezing but probably do to your water solenoid valve not completely shutting after the fill cycle and spilling over into bin and then freezing. Take your model number to searspartsdirect.com and you should find your solenoid water valve on the water circuit diagram.

Kitchenaid superba ice maker not making ice


Put some water in the tray. Let it freeze and once frozen will the ice then empty into the ice bin? If yes then the problem is possibly one side of the water control valve is defective. This is not the correct water control valve for your model number. HERE You need to provide the correct model number first.
What is the model number? I am here should you need me, Thanks John Tripp Appliance 911

Ge refrigeration model 20-25 icemaker not making ice



Fill ice maker with tap water and allow the water to freeze. If when the ice maker cycles and drops ice into ice bin it chooses not to refill with water at end of the cycle. That would point to the dual water control valve. If ice maker does nothing when filled with tap water that will indicate a defective ice maker. The model number you listed does not appear to be correct. Look around the fresh food section door frame and see what you have. This could be the ice maker or the dual water control valve causing this problem. Thanks Sea Breeze

Ice maker water freezes before getting to Ice maker


likely you have a bad water valve where the water goes into the fridge. The valve is not sealing all the way and the water is dripping even when it closes allowing the water to freeze up

I just put in a new water valve for my ice maker , water is pumping out of the ice maker inside of frezzer.


Hi,
I would Assume you used the correct valve for the model you have, and If that is the correct valve, your ice maker is calling to power-up the valve. To test this, disconnect the water valve power (two wires) put a meter in them, cycle the ice maker. Count how long the ice maker calls for water. Should be about 5-6 seconds or 2/3 cup of water. You can test this with a meter or a measuring cup under the valve and cycle the ice maker.
If you get too much water then - is the ice maker still calling for water or did the valve not close will be the result.
Good Luck

I do not believe the other advisor understand my problem. I have a GE Profile Arctica refrigerator PSS25NGMDBB. The problem is the cup fill (GE part name) is frozen and full of ice. So when the ice...


You are right. The water inlet valve is leaking a small drip and it freezes when it reaches the cold air in the freezer at the fill tube. Melt the ice in the tube with a hairdryer and replace the water inlet valve. It's on the back where the water supply connects to the back.

Water is leaking out of ice maker and freezing up where cubes are


Sounds like water valve is not closing all the way after the icemaker calls for water. This is because sediment in water builds up on valve seat therefore letting water pass through. Suggest replacing fill valve. Crescent shaped ice....ice maker on needs 4 ounces to fill icemaker, so any more than that will spill out.

Lack of water in tray.


check and make sure that as it makes ice that no water is spilling over or out of the freeze tray. only a set amount of water comes in to refill resevoir. if you lose water during the freeze cycle the water level gets below the blades of the pump and it will sound like the pump is tearing up.
