Water leaking from Icemaker fill tube near the back wall

It probably is not the water valve. More likely it is the ice maker itself. Nothing else in the machine controls the flow of water to the ice maker except the ice maker itself. It is recommended that both the ice maker and the water valve needs to be replaced when trouble such as this.

Ice maker not working

my icemaker has a wire overfill sensor which shuts off the icemaker if there is too much ice in the basket. If this wire gets pushed up it will stop making ice until level lowers OR manually lowered.

Ice maker no longer making ice. A few weeks ago the water that was supposed to fill just the ice tray, didn't turn off, overflowed the ice tray and proceeded to fill the ice basket underneath. Since then...

Sounds like the water flowed enough to freeze the end of the fill tube shut. Best to prepare to replace the dual water control valve on the rear and near floor of refrigerator. If it was leaking and you should thaw the tube you need to turn the main supply of water off until replaced. Then thaw tube and replace the dual control valve. I will return with a part number providing your model number is correct, Thanks, Sea Breeze

The ice in the ice tray becomes a solid block and has to be manually broken apart to get the dispenser working again. Tried changing the temperature on the front panel to no effect.

Good day,
Water leaking from the water fill valve when it should be off can overfill the ice maker cavity causing that, or the fill tube from the back of the machine going into the back of the ice maker has become dislodged.

Machine could be going into it's defrost cycle for too long, warming up the area around the tray causing the cubes to partially melt.

Are you sure it is a leak. Is the solenoid actually cutting off BEFORE the tray is full of water? If not, it is not a leak. The filling time for the icemaker water tray (where the ice freezes) varies depending on the local water pressure. With higher pressure, the tray may overfill. Your icemaker motor module timer may be set too long for your specific water pressure, so that the tray overfills. There is an adjustment on the module for shorter or longer fill time. You will need to remove the icemaker (3 screws probably) and reset the timer. It may take 2 or 3 tries to get it so the trays are about 80 to 90% full.

Ice maker overfills with water, drips into ice bin, and auger cannot turn because of ice. Can't find any water regulator.

Don't have this model, but could there be a weight sensor for the ice tray that is stuck and possibly frozen in the up position? The weight sensor would normally sense when there is enough water in the ice tray and then cause the water to shut off. See whether the tray should have up and down vertical movement.

Faulty ice maker

Hello. Yes, that is the correct position for the icemaker feeler arm. The updated icemaker has a longer feeler arm that hangs down a little more (thereby shutting off sooner when the ice piles up not so high).

Your water leak onto your food is from water spilling out of the front left corner of the ice tray during fill. This has also been updated with a plastic lip that keeps the water from sloshing out when filling up.

The photo shows that your ice tray appears to be unlevel and drooping in the front left corner. This happens with flex tray icemakers over time. The icetray does not fully flex back to its level posiiton. I do not feel you need to replace the entire icemaker. Repalcing just the ice tray should fix your issue.

Hope this helps, please rate my solution.

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
