    ice maker not getting water. I can manually add water and it will freeze and dump. The tube that dispenses water to ice maker was frozen and I used the blow dryer to melt the ice in tube. I noticed the light on the icemaker control panel was not working. What should I do?

    My refrigerator/freezer is having the same problems. The only spot in the refrigerator keeping a safe temp is the bottom drawer. The freezer turns everything into a solid block, ice cream is a big problem. The freezer is not self defrosting and the ice maker water line has frozen water stalling in the line. There appears to be ice forming on the lower wall inside of the fridge side by the bottom drawer.



    I have the temp on the freezer side turned to lowest setting and the fridge side on highest setting.

    Do you think this is a thermostat gone out? Where is that located?

    My Whirlpool is a side by side, model # GS6SHAXLS03

    Thank you,

    The water valve is in the rear pull the unit out and remove the back panel look on the right side you will see a dual valve ther 2 screws hold to the cabniet pull the valve out and switch the plugs on the valves they may not fit but you can hold the plugs on the valve to test have some one press in the dispenser in the front see if it opens the valve that goes to the Ice Maker try that first

    sounds like you have 2 problems the too cold it most likely a bad stat in the refrig section or broken damper leading into the refrig the icemaker may have a bad water inlet valve check these and let me know

I have the same problem no ice yet water comes out of the fron dispenser. I will keep trying to make it work. We only have 1 fridge so shutting it off 4 3 days is not an option.

I ended up emptying everything from fridge/freezer. Turned it all off for 3 days. Then, cleaned it out and turned it back on. So far, one week later, everything is good. I have wondered if the damper vents in fridge got blocked and froze up. Could still be defrost timer... time will tell. Thanks for all the information.

Samusung RFG297HDRS Ice maker not cold enough to produce ice.


Suspect that the rubber boot that runs all around the edge of your freezer door is deformed, allowing warm air to seep into your freezer. You will see where your temp sensor is located by clicking into the site of a parts supplier like ShopJimmy.com and pulling up their photo of the guts of your unit.

The meat and veg drawers freeze the meat and veggies no matter what setting the temp. is on.


Freezing meat,vegetables. Problem with damper.

For this problem, its indicating towards problem with damper assembly.----------

The working procedure of this unit is as follows: --- The compressor starts then it cools the freezer section. When the freezer reaches its cooling level the defrost cycle starts functioning. In this cycle the fan in the freezer section starts running and the cool air in the freezer section is passed to the fridge section and the fridge section gets cold. The air from freezer to refrigerator passes from the section, in that section the damper is located. ----------- The damper is operated by a motor.Its a complete damper assembly with motor included in it.--The damper has door.Which closes and open with the help of motor.In your case the damper door is remained open, its not closing.Due to this the cool air from freezer section is running in to fridge section non-stop.Due to this the vegetables and other food in the bottom drawer freezing.--------- In this problem the damper assembly needs to be replaced.---------------

You can get required parts from online sites like: --- www.repairclinic.com or from searspartsdirect online site.

----------- This should help. Thanks.Helpmech.

My 12 year old subzero fridge (650) is not getting cold. this morning i discovered ice behind the fresh food drawer, removed it, it was running fine, temp 35. now tonight the temp is 51. freezer is fine....


Is it flashing vacuum condenser? Ice behind the crisper drawer shouldn't effect the temp. What is it set at? You can go to www.subzerospecialists.com and click on Tech Help for additional info.

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, blocking or diverting the water.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

Ice maker filling with water but not freezing into cubes.


Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. 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.

Bottom vegetable/fruit drawer freezing fruit


to the left of the bottom drawer is a veg/meat slide switch.make sure it is all the way on veg.if it is on meat,it opens a small doorway to the freezer and lets the cold air in and will freeze the food in the bottom drawer.in some cases,you will need to remove the drawer and shelf and then take apart the doorway.ball up some putty and jam it it the hole to completely seal it off
