Question about U-Line Icemaker

U-line BI98 water line leak

The water line inside of my ice maker has a leak. Not the line from the wall, but the plastic tubing that runs along the bottom, up the back, and into the insulation. I have found the part on line, but wanted to find out if it is difficult to replace and how I would do it. Thanks for the help.

    Same problem, water drips from beneath the ice maker inside the cooling area. This water eventually freezes and turns the whole ice maker compartment into a block of ice.

    My BI 95 leaks under the ice tray as well and turns into a big iceburg. I tried to remove the icemake by taking off the screws and couldn't get it to come off

Take off the back panel, the water line plugs in from the back. The icemaker has mounting screws, but there's a thermal mastic that kind of glues it to the evaporator. You don;t need to remove the icemaker to change the water line, I would put the screws back in and leave it. Don't force the icemaker from the evaporator, it might damage the evaporator.

Cu2026 not making much ice

Sometimes the water inlet gets clogged. This happens a lot if u are using well water. Take the water line loose from back of fridge. fold the tube to stop water from leaking on floor if it is a plastic tube. have a bucket handy and put line in bucket let the water flow. It should come hard and fast. If not go to water valve where it pirces the main water line. check the hole and make sure it is large enough to supply the water. I had to take a drill bit and make the hole a little larger. That fixed mine. If that is not the problem then I would replace water inlet valve on the fridge.

Compressor gone & Input water line burned in half

Sounds like your condenser is dirty, condenser fan motor is out and it over heated the compressor. Since it get so hot, the plastic tubing is melted by the copper tubing ( plastic tubing is touching the hot copper tubing). It is not worth to fix it. Compressor cost $250-$300, plus condenser fan motor, plastic tubing and labor. U-Line has 5yr parts and labor sealed system Warr. U-Line ph # 800-779-2547

Not making Ice

Is the freezer at least 10 degrees? Is there water in the ice mold? If not put some to see if it will harvest after it freezes. If no water getting to ice mold 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. 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.

I have an old U-line ice maker. I can not find

The mechanical parts of those models is the same as a BI 95 or BI98. If your looking for the faceplate that would be part number 150. This includes the timer motor,gears,water switch, and hold switch. You can order this thru a parts distributor. Appliance Parts Depot or All Brand Parts should be able to help. If you want to replace the complete icemaker assemly that part number is 402

check 2 things. Make sure the fill tube is going downwards to the cup inside. The second thing is when the valve shuts off make sure it closes right away. If it doesnt then replace the valve.
