HI. Check the filter date, if equipped. If the filter has reached its filtering limit, it will not allow for the proper flow of fluid. replace the filter if needed. Ok, if the filter is not an issue, i would advise to inspect the internal lines. Make sure the lines are not frozen over. this will constrict the flow as well. If the lines are ok, this will lead to a failed inlet assembly. Follow the procedure below to inspect the water 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.

Water is leaking from bottom of frig, supply line is fine. Its seems to be comming from the front end of frig


Check the drains. It may have been clogged by particles from the food accumulated over time. It may also be from the ice that may have accumulated inside, at the panel at the back.

Ice maker quit working on GE refrigerator


Sometimes on a ice maker what will happen is the water line that fills the ice maker will freeze. You can use a large syringe filled with hot water and from the rear of the frig remove the water line where the hose goes into the rear of the frig and force some hot water into the tube to see if it is clear.
If the line is clear fill the ice maker manually and see if it goes through a cycle.
If it goes through a cycle you have to check to see if the ice maker is calling for water by putting a multi meter across the contacts of the water inlet valve located behind the panel on the back of the frig. Advance the ice maker to run through a cycle and see if it is calling for water. If you have current going to the valve and no water momming in, replace the valve.
If you do not have current going to the valve after the ice maker has gone through a cycle. Replace the ice maker.

Water squirts out the back of my Kitchen Aid Superba where the water line enters the fridge. This happens when the ice maker tries to fill with water.


make sure that the water supply line is tight. the line that comes from the wall should be copper or stainless steel braided line. if it is the clear plastic line get rid of it as it is more prone to kink and leak especially at the points where the connections are made... another thing to check is where the supply line connects to the frig.. that is the solinoid valve and on the top is a blue or clear plastic cap and somtimes they will crack or have a small pin hole in them and will spray a very fine stream of water that is hard to see but can be felt on your finger tip.. pull out the frig and empty the ice tray and put it back in and close the freezer door or drawer and wait for the ice maker to call for water and have a bright flashlight ready, when it calles for water you will only have about 5-7 seconds to see where the leak is so make sure to feel around as well.; if your are replacing the ice maker supply line from the wall to the frig make sure to not over tighten the connection to the frig because it may cause that plastic cap to crack....I hope this helps....

Kenmore frig ice machine doesn't make cube ice


Normally, the ice "cubes" are crescent shaped. The most likely cause for "crushed" ice is that the ice maker isn't getting enough water on its refill cycle after ejecting the tray. Becuase there isn't enough water, the ice looks crushed...it's actually shattered.

Check the water inlet and chute to the ice maker. Sometimes they freeze and have to be manually defrosted. A hair dryer will do the trick. Also check the water chute and be sure it isn't partially frozen.

Start there...if no luck you could also have a failing water filter or sticky water solenoid valve.

Jenn air side by side refrigerator ice maker not working


On mine the water inlet feed tube would freeze solid. Removing the ice tray and using a hair dryer to completely thaw the tube would get it working for another month or so. My frig had a solid rubber inlet tube. I noticed at the appliance store that newer models had an inlet tube that was split on top. I got one of these from a local appliance parts store, and it fixed the problem. The tube replacement it easy. Get to the back of the frig. Turn off the water supply. Carefully pry the white plastic piece out ( located on the upper right side when facing the back of the frig. ) of the frig. When you have the new one in hand it will be clear what you are going to do. Pull out the old remove the water line. Attach the line to the new tube and insert it. Turn on water, check for leaks, and you should be ok. This repair is only effective if you have an inlet tube that freezes up. There can be many other malfunctions that stop ice makers from working. This was my problem. Replaced the tube 3 years ago and ice maker has worked fine since the replacement.

Water dispenser will not work when lever is pressed. we had an intermittent problem with it before it stopped working altogather.I was going to look at it but was afraid to pop off the trim on the outside...


This could be a bad water valve in the frig. This frig has a double water valves. One for the ice maker and one for the water dispenser. It should be in the lower back. Where the water line goes in. You can check this valve easily. Find the double water valve on the frig. Turn off water supply to frig first. Swap the plastic water lines going from the water valve into the frig. Turn water supply on. Then see if the water dispenser works. Sometimes you will have to operate the water dispenser for a little while to get the air out of the line. If it works now then the problem is in the water valve solenoid and needs to be replaced.
