Check the water valve, it might be leaking water slowly into the icemaker tube. Turn off icemaker. Disconnect .25" tubing from the icemaker fill tube in the back of the refrigerator. shake some water off the .25" tubing, mark the current water level on the tubing, then leave it for 5 min or so, and check it again. If the level has risen - replace the water valve. If the level is the same - replace the fill tube, it may have some sediment buildup, which causes the water drops to remain in the tube after the icemaker fillup.

Good luck.

Testimonial: "good answer but wrong to question tube is inside the freezer. It is white plastic and feeds the ice maker. It is frozen and looks like someone broke the tub in half length wise."

No water to ice maker


This could be because the ice is clumped in the ice bin. When the automatic defrost cycle occurs, heat is transferred to the freezer area. This can cause the cubes to melt slightly and refreeze back together. You can take the bin out and give it a good shake, or simply discard the cubes and start over with a fresh batch of ice cubes. By increasing the amount of food in the freezer compartment, you may be able to buffer the heat that comes from the defrost cycle and avoid clumping issues.
If you have a large ice bin and hardly use any ice, it is possible that the cubes have gotten stuck together just from the weight of the cubes on top of others.

How do I fix a broken water pipe?


Plastic or metal? You have to get under the trailer to do this. You have to cut off the bad pipe and use new pipe. You should see about using shark bite connectors to make this easier.

Water pipe feeding this froze, pipe was repaired, unit filled with water, no leaks won't agitate something smells hot or burnt, vibration low noise comes from unit, won't pump wter from tub


remove the water pump. it may be broken by water freezing iside. also make sure you dont use the washer if ambient temp in room is below freezing. freezing will damage water valves,pumps and freeze grease inside the gearcase.

The ice maker does not make ice anymore


There's no ice If your ice maker has stopped producing ice completely, check these, in this order: It may be turned off. Look for the wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If the wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. If so, try one of these: If your ice maker has a small red plastic lever, lower it to lower the wire. If there's no plastic lever, simply lower the wire. In either case, the ice maker should begin producing ice again. Also make sure that the temperature is 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly. The ice maker fill tube may be blocked with ice. If so, melt the blockage using a hair dryer-but be careful to not melt any plastic parts! Also replace the water shut-off valve or water-inlet valve, or both, if necessary. The ice maker head assembly may have broken parts. Look to see if the gears are broken. Check to see if the small plastic arms that rest against the ice rake are broken. If the ice maker head assembly is modular and you've found broken parts, you can just replace it.
thanks.

Ice Maker won't work


Hello,

If your trying to save a service call you have your work cut out for you. The ice maker is a unit that sits by itself attached to the wall or part of the freezer wall.

There are many reasons why you do not get ice and I will list them.

1- Temp of freezer got too cold and has frozen the pipe that feeds the water to fill the icemaker.
check to see if the icemaker has any ice in the area that fills and makes the cubes.
If the pipe is clogged, very gently put a small tipped screw driver in the fill hose that sites over the ice making row in the ice maker. Be careful you do not push your screwdriver out the back of the refer.
Check to see the freezer temp is not too cold and is freezing that pipe. 0-3 degrees F is good.

2.- check to make sure your water feeding the fridge is on. There is an on off valve to allow the water to feed the icemaker when it needs to fill. This could be bad. there are reset proceedures for the fridge, but unplugging the entire frige for 1 minute and plugging it back in you can listen for the the valve to come on and see if it fills the ice maker resevoir.

3. If it fills and freezes the ice resevoir, then the sensor in the ice tray does not sense the frozen ice and will not cycle and kick cubes. At this point, unless you are super tech, you will need to replace the entire icemaker unit.

Hope this helps.

Ice Maker not making Ice


That plastic piece it part of the ice maker module. It's broken. Will need to replace that module and ice maker thermostat (bimetal) for best repair. If you do this repair you will also need food grade silicone grease (glob) to make a good contact between the thermostat and mold. It this sounds to complicated then just replace the whole icemaker and that will fix your problem.
