Franklin chef ice maker fim70 finished running cleaning cycle. have cleaned plugs, lines, on rear and sprayer inside bin. water continues to run, ice forms on top (w/ frost). Ice never drops.


Ice may jam up in an ice dam and close off the chute. Shove the ice scoop up into the chute with a fair amount of force to break up the ice dam. Chunks of ice should fall into the bin, followed by a shower of ice cubes.

Ice maker will only make crushed ice and no cubes, what could be the problem

Open the freezer door.
Pull the ice bin forward about 3 inches.
Push the ice bin to the rear of the freezer until it seats and locks in place.
Then try to dispense cubes.
The ice bin can become dislodged from its locked position and the crushed ice solenoid activates automatically.

My model AM-50bae ice machine has water in the storage bin,what can I do?

check the bottom of the bin for a drain spout. The drain line may be clogged allowing the water to build-up in the bottom.

If the water is coming down from the ice machine itself, you will need to open up the machine and look inside. Check to ensure the cube guides have not come out of place, that the sump is not overflowing with water, and that there are no loose, leaking, disconnected, or busted hoses.

Ice maker water leak in freezer. 8 yr old Amana std freezer on top, water actively leaking from ice maker into bin. Is it worth repairing?

Probably the solenoid (electric valve that opens and let the water from the supply line go into ice maker when It calls for it) is leaking and needs to be replaced ,it's not an expensive job. To make sure this is the problem ,shut of the ice maker by putting up the lever and wait a few hours and look inside the ice maker , if is water inside ,that's the problem ,if not the ice maker is the problem and has to be fix or replaced ; but is better to replace it ,won't be a big diference in cost.

Whirlpool 4317943 Ice Maker Kit The ice tray overfills with water. Excess water drips into the ice bin & freezes

Probably the dual valve (solenoid) the one that opens when the ice maker calls for water is leaking.It's located in the back of the refrigerator at the bottom behind the cover.To be sure this is the problem turn off the ice maker and after a while if is water the valve is leaking ,if not the problem is with the ice maker.
