Water freezes before getting to ice tray

HI, for some reason the water going into the ice cube tray seems to flow too long at times and this leaves water in the tube leading to the ice cube which then freezes. Any suggestions for correcting this problem? I usually take the ice maker out and remove the accumulated ice and dry it out and re-install it and it works for months but then the tube freezes again and I have to start all over.
Thanks for your help

Sounds as if your water inlet valve is not closing fast enough allowing a small amoutn of water to accummulate in fill tube freezing and eventually freezing solid, would try replacing water inlet valve, or even the water filter if this model is so equipped

Water is going into the ice tray but once it freezes the cubes dont come out when the assembly rotates. When it cycles again to get more water the water spills into the dispenser & eventually the tray


can b one or two things wrong here
(1) how sure are u that water is not just continuously flowing into tray (at low rate) ??? reason I ask is a leaky solenoid valve is a very common failure on ice makers
(2) is arm that rotates thru ice tray ,not obstructed by anything ? ive seen Frozen pizza's hold a swing arm down and not allow it to raise to shield the ice tray in a dumping cycle (im speaking of "hold" arm ! thin steel arm that raises up in a ice dump cycle )
(3) of course could be a defective ice maker as well ? theres lots of motors and gears and switches inside there that could malfunction and prevent it from working

How do you make mint ice cubes? I heard that mint doesnot freeze very well.


You can just put mint leaves into the base of ice cube trays and add water and freeze. Because mint is a very soft herb, some people find that it doesn't freeze so well. Another option is to blend the mint in a processor and freeze it in cubes ready blended. This is good for recipes that call for finely chopped or minced herbs rather than whole leaves.

On my VISB542SS the ice maker , water leaks into the drawer when ice is being made, Ihave removed the unit to check for leaks bot find none.


Hi,


The ice tray releases the ice because the mechanism twists the tray during the end of the cycle. Sediment builds up in the ice try over time and the smooth Teflon surface is no longer smooth, and the ice can get a "grip" on the tray. Then when the tray is twisted, a few cubes remain in the tray. When the measured amount of water then flows into the tray on the next cycle, it is too much. It freezes over the top of the tray, and the next time the tray is twisted, no ice falls out. When water is injected after this, it just runs off the top of the tray into the bin, freezing the ice in the bin. Replace the ice tray every 3-4 years with a new ice tray, and the problem disappears.


Do get back to us for any further query and do not forget to accept it.

Ice bucket/bin frozen in place


mine was overfilling because the ice was getting stuck on the way out. So some stayed in the tray and when the water would refil, it would overfil and go over the stuk cubes. leaving it to overflow to the bottom and freeze like yours.

It depends somewhat on the quality of ice cream. Some brands freeze easier than others. One reason is cheaper brands have more sweetener/sugar in them.
I think if your freezer is freezing water into ice cubes, it should freeze ice cream of good quality.
Try putting the ice cream where the ice cube tray is and verify ;this.

Ice Maker Freezing Up and Ice not dispensing


Check your ice cube tray to see if it is warped. Mine was. I took the tray off and dipped it into boiling water and remoulded it to the original shape and re-installed it. So far no problems. The tray gets warped because of the ice cube release mechanism. The tray is rotated around until it meets a block on one corner which creates the twisting motion we used to do on manual trays. Over time it tends to warp the tray. Good luck
