First make sure there is a water line connected to the unit and the valve is on. Second, make sure the selector located on the side of the ice maker is in the down position.

Another thing you can do, pull the fridge away from the wall so you can get behind it. If there's a filter installed; turn off the water valve and open the line before and after the filter.

There will be residual pressure in the line after valve is turned off. if you open the line before the filter and pressure is releived with a little spurt of water...reconnect the line and turn on valve; which will build up the pressure again - turn the valve off; and open the line after the filter...no spurt of water means the filter is clogged.

Bypass or replace the filter.

Hope this helps,

Mike.

Ice maker won t dump ice


The ice is stuck in the tray because the heater element has not slightly melted the ice so it can be pushed out of tray. Check for continuity of element and/or proper cam operation (motor that controls all of the operations).

Frigidaire gallery side by side won't send water to ice maker tray, but will to water dispenser


Hello Jim czyryca - From what you are describing if the ice maker is not making ice but is dispensing water, sounds like the refrigerator has a frozen water line, faulty ice maker valve or bad component that sends power to the ice maker valve when needed. The ice maker cycles internally to call for water so I strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately to assist with the repairs.

Frigidaire plhs3teesbe model won't make ice


Hello - If your ice maker has stopped producing ice completely, you can try to check the following:



1. It may be turned off. Look for the wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If the wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. If so, try one of these: If your ice maker has a small red plastic lever, lower it to lower the wire. If there's no plastic lever, simply lower the wire. In either case, the ice maker should begin producing ice again.


2. Also make sure that the temperature is 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly.


3. The ice maker fill tube may be blocked with ice. If so, melt the blockage using a hair dryer-but be careful to not melt any plastic parts!


4. Also replace the water shut-off valve or water-inlet valve, or both, if necessary. The ice maker head assembly may have broken parts. Look to see if the gears are broken. Check to see if the small plastic arms that rest against the ice rake are broken. If the ice maker head assembly is modular and you've found broken parts, you can just replace it.

Freezer won't make ice cubes, but does provide cold water.


The water and ice maker are two seperate water control valves built onto the same. Your water control valve for the ice maker may be defective and require that you change the set. Fill ice maker with tap water and allow the water to freeze. If the ice maker dumps the ice into ice bin and then does not refill then this points to the water control valve. If the ice maker does nothing after water freezes then the problem is the ice maker. Send me a model number and I will look up the part numbers for you, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Tfx20r ice maker won't fill


Try this fill the ice maker with tap water so we can decide if it is the ice maker or the water control valve. After the water freezes if the ice dumps and the ice maker does not refill with water then you will need to replace the=> WR57X10033 Water Control Valve If the ice maker does nothing after being filled with tap water and the water freezes then this would point to the=> WR30X10093 Ice Maker Assembly If you have questions I will be here to answer them for you, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Water supply for ice maker won't turn off


Hi,

Its either the water valve thats not closing, or the ice maker not telling the water valve to shut off.

Turn off the ice maker, and see if water still pours out, or even better, unplug the refrigerator and if the water still pours out of the ice maker, then the water valve is bad and you should have it replaced.
