Re: no water going to the ice maker

Is the sensor that senses a full ice bin is a little light or it is a lever. If is thinks your bin is full it probably won't run water. There is a separate valve for the ice maker. It may be bad or have a bad connection on it.

No water no ice

Change the=> 67006531 Water Inlet Valve I believe the side of your 67006531 Water Inlet Valve that controls water flow to the ice maker has weakened and cannot open properly. Replace the water valves and I believe the ice maker will work fine, Sea Breeze

Not making ice after changing filter.

Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly.

A new filter can take several cycles of the ice maker to fill the filter up with water before. The average filter is around 30 oz and the average ice maker fill cycle is 3.2 oz. The new filter did not have any water in it. The water in the door has a resercoir so the air in the filter will still make the water work until you get air. Drain abour 3 tall glasses from the water in door. The ice maker should then work properly. The filter filters water for water in door (inside) and the ice maker so if you have water inside the door you should have ice UNLESS one of the inlet water valve solenoids has failed. Also make sure the Freezer door / light switch functions properly. The door switch is supposed to stop water and ice functions with the door open.

I would like to know if it starts making ice.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Do i need to change the filter in order to get the ice maker to work? the water still come out but not into the ice maker. please help!

no you donot need to change the filter first. all of the water goes through the filter first. you either have a bad water valve for the ice maker. a bad ice maker. or bad optics that sense the ice bin on the door is full. can you move the ejector blades on the ice maker? that will tell you if the ice maker gear is broken.

No water to ice maker.Ice maker quit making ice.

What I found was the problem was that I had not changed the filter on a regular basis.Because of this the water flow to the ice maker was restricted.What this caused was the water inlet tube on the ice maker to freeze up.On my unit it is a black rubber tube about 11/4 long on the right side.You can see it if you know what you are looking for.If you squeeze it you can tell if it is froze or not.You can use a hair drier to thaw it out or squirt water up into the tube .It does not take very long..To make sure it is clear disconnect the tube on the back of the fridge and blow into it.If there is no restriction the tube is clear.After you have determined the tube is clear add water to the ice tray so the unit will make ice this will start the ice maker to cycle.Its making good ice now.

Low flow from water dispenser

If there is a filter on the unit, change it. If not, then sounds like the screen is clogging up. You will need to pull the unit out and remove the water supply line and take off the adaptor to access the filter screen and clean it...
