3 beeps every 3 seconds


This usually occurs when there is a water supply issue. If you remove the front cover and expose the right side of the unit, you will see (at the top right) a panel with a black button on it about 1/3 the way in. USE A FLASHLIGHT to locate it.... there is an electrical shock hazard here.

Push the button and the beeps will stop. If the warning recurs, check for water pressure to the unit.

First, if you have a filter system, crack the nut at the entry to the filter just enough to see if water is present there. If not, go to the source and check the angle-stop... change it, or open it, as required.

If you have water at the filter inlet, do the same thing (after tightening the nut you loosened) at the outlet. No water?..... change the filters. Water present?... do the same at the entry to the ice machine.

Water at the entrance? Turn off the water and remove that fitting to expose the inlet solenoid valve and examine the strainer. If clogged, remove and clean the strainer.

Beyond this, you will need a technician to deal with the issue. Call the Hoshizaki factory at 1*800*438*6087 to find a factory-authorized service company in your area.

Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

Can get water from the main water line but can't get water up to the ice maker help


HI. The inlet valve is suspect in this case. I recommend to inspect this device for damage. replace if necessary.

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.


NOTE:- Make sure the inside line is not frozen over before preforming the inspection of the inlet valve.

Whirlpool GR2FHTXVQ00 fridge. Water dispenser


The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.
The valve can leak because of sediment in the water preventing it from closing or low water pressure.

You can thaw out the fill tube and replace the inlet valves.

How do i hook up the water supply. witch is the inlet and outlet?


Most newer units have a brass inlet on the valve and a plastic outlet. Older modles have a plastic garder hose type fitting for inlet and same smaller plastic thread for outlet Some models have push in connectors called John Guess fittings the do not require threading.

Leaking ice maker


If it overfills and drips, look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water.

If it continuously drips, replace the water inlet valve on the back where the house water supply comes in.
The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze diverting the water.

Water inlet valve - where is it located - model RCA MSX27D


The water inlet valve is located near the bottom in the "back" usually on the side the icemaker is located. On certain style freezers (boats, etc.) the inlet valve may be located at the bottom in "front" on the icemaker side.

My jenn air freezer is not making cubes. the


The water inlet valve may be staying open. You can swap the wires on the dual water inlet valve and disconnect the water line at the valve which goes to the ice maker. When you try the water dispenser the water will come out there. When you stop the water dispenser, if the water at the valve doesn't stop, the valve isn't closing so you'll need to replace it. If it does stop after trying it several times then the problem is with the ice maker.

If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze.

Ice maker seems to be dripping water onto ice in ice container


If it overfills and drips, look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water.

If it continuously drips, replace the water inlet valve on the back where the house water supply comes in.

Watch it when it fills with water. The fill tube could also be stopped up with ice. The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze.

Kenmore icemaker won't work


Either the inlet valve is stuck or the icemaker solenoid is shored.

Most likely the second one.
