Remove cover of front of ice maker, small brass screw on side w/small view port on front. small adjustments only on the screw. Factory setting is for 'hole' in view port to be in the middle. start w/ 1/4 turns on adjustment screw, clock wise less, counter for more. hope this helps.
p.s. place a towel under maker to keep excess water out of ice bin.

How can I adjust the waterflow to a lower setting to make it 1.2 gallon flush from a 1989 3.5 gallon flush??

Keep in mind that if you limit the amount of water too much, the 3.5 gallon toilet will not flush properly.

This looks like an old Kohler Rialto toilet. The proper way to adjust the water level is to tighten down on the adjustment screw located on the very top of the fill valve. The fill valve is the the piece that the float ball screws into on the left side of the tank.
Tighten the screw down and flush the toilet. Wait for it to refill, and check the level. If you need less water, tighten again, let fill and check level.
There are also two old school methods to save water in your toilet. One is to put one or two bricks into your toilet tank. This reduces the amount of water that fills the tank. The second method is if the fill valve has a float ball on a metal rod, you can bend this rod down into the water. This makes the fill valve shut sooner. Don't bend too far or too fast because the chlorine in the water weakens the brass rod that the float ball attaches to.

There should be a adjustment screw at the top of the fill valve, screw it up or down to adjust the tank level.

Adjusting Ice Maker Fill

Use a flat-head screwdriver to remove the screws on the ice maker's front access panel, and then remove the panel.

  • Locate the adjustment screw, located about mid-point on the side of the ice maker. Do not turn the crew more than one full turn in either direction.
  • Turn the screw clockwise ½ turn to decrease the water fill level.
  • Turn the screw counterclockwise ½ turn to increase the water fill level.
  • Close the access panel and restore the screws. Turn the refrigerator back on.

    Just need to know how to adjust the 'arm' of the ballcock to lower the water level in the tank. Do I use the screw at the base of the arm?


    To adjust the water level, you need to set the height at which the float shuts off the water valve. There are several types of floats. In older toilets, the float hangs at the end of an armature, along a metal or plastic rod. Where that arm connects to the water valve there is usually a screw. Adjusting that screw will change the level at which the water valve shuts off. If there is no screw or it is already at its maximum, you may be able to bend the metal arm, but you should remove it from the valve or risk damaging the fill valve.
    In newer toilets the float is often a collar around the fill valve and rides up and down vertically. The float typically has a spring clip connecting it to a metal rod which connects to the valve shut off control. Squeeze the spring clip to slide the float up or down the metal rod.
    Manufacturers have several variations on the fill valve mechanism, but they all include a method for adjusting the water level. Close inspection should make it clear how to adjust your particular fill valve.

    I hope this helps!

    The water level is too high in my tank and goes over the over flow and in styrofoam on the inside of the tank.

    Adjust the float attached to the fill valve. Some simply slide up and down on a racheted adjustment bar. Others screw up and down for adjustment. Flush after each adjustment until the proper fill level is acheived. Make sure there is still a sufficient amount of water at a given level to flush the toilet properly.

    The ice maker on my Amana side-by-side isn't working right. Too much water. I have replaced the valve twice and it works ok for a little while. What else could be wrong?

    Take a look at this web link:

    About 1/3 of the way down the page there is this statement with picture:
    1 full turn will affect fill by 40cc. 1/2 turn varies the fill by 20cc.Some Ice Makers May have knobTurning the knob or screw clockwise decreases fill; counter-clockwise increases the fill amount.Turing Adjustment Screw More than 1 full turn could damage module.

    If you have 2 times replaced the water valve and you still tend to think the water valve is the problem again it may be time to use an IN-LINE water filter as you just may be getting particulate introduced into the ice maker water valve from the house connection. Particulate in the ice maker water valve seat causes them to bypass water when they are not supposed to.

    I tend to think your in the right track and thinking the problem just may not be the water valve.

    Use the link to troubleshoot. Just remember though that each time you cycle the ice maker using the jumper as instructed it will fill with water.

    What I would to is pull the plastic hose in the back and cycle the icemaker BEFORE you make any adjustments catching the fill water in a measuring cup behind the unit. Note volume...

    Make adjustment... Note volume difference. You should not have to make much more than a 20cc adjustment.

    Thanks for choosing FixYa.

    How do I adjust tank fill valve to increase water level in toilet?

    There are many different fill valves out there so it would be a little hard to tell you how to adjust your particular one without knowing the brand and type of the fill valve.
    So I will give you a generic adjustment.
    Look for someway/something to adjust your float in the toilet tank.
    There should be a screw, moveable metal, something that will adjust your float.
    Once you locate the adjustment, you can then adjust your water level in the toilet tank.
    Adjust the water level in the toilet tank to be about a 1/4-1/2 inch before it flows out of the overflow tube when the water shuts off.
    Good Luck, I hope this helped.
    Please rate me, Thanks

    Ice cubes stick together as though too much water is coming into tray. Is there a valve or something to control amount of water coming in?

    yes their is a water valve , 2 things it could be your valve or you i/m. the i/m tells the water valve to fill for about 6-9 seconds if the icemaker is bad it could be telling it to fill for 10 seconds instead of the normal time and overflow the icemaker ,or the water valve also called solenoid could be bad and at not stopping at the desighned time. i dont have your model # to go much furthur but you can remove the cover in the front of the icemaker and see if you see an icemaker water level adjustment screw, newer ge and frigidaire ref. cannot be adjusted, however wpl, maytag, and older ge ref can be and older frg.try adjusting water level at icemaker first .

    There is a water fill adjustment on your ice maker the normal fill time is 7.5 seconds...

    the adjustment screw is on the side and in the middle of the head..
    •Turning the water level adjustment screw
    will move the contact in its relationship with
    the contact ring segment. This causes the
    contact to vary the time that the water valve
    is energized since the contact ring is tapered
    at the end of the fill time.
    •Turning the knob or screw clockwise
    decreases fill - counterclockwise increases
    the fill amount.
    • Only one revolution is possible with the
    cover on, due to a stop molded on cover
    360o will affect fill by 40cc - 180o varies
    the fill by 20cc.

    •if you need more adjustmnet remove cover

    • Further adjustment could damage

    Hope it help please let me know if it does...
