Good day,
The problem you have is the water valve on the bottom rear of your machine is not shutting off completely after a fill cycle.
The ice maker sends a signal to the water valve at the end of the harvest cycle to refill the ice maker cavity for the next cycle. The fill time is approx. 7 seconds then the water valve has to shut off completely.
There is an internal problem with the valve.
The valve is non-serviceable. Replacing it with a new one will solve your problem. This is a very common problem and is not limited to your brand.

    Thanks



    Where do i find the diagram of the icemaker and proceedure for replacing the valve?

  • John Hall Jul 05, 2010

    Good day,

    The valve and ice maker are separate items. The valve is located in the back bottom of the refrigerator. It is the item the water line from the house is connected to. Replacing it is a nuts and bolts procedure. Remove the water line from the house after shutting off the valve supplying it. It is bolted on, and only requires unscrewing the outlet hoses, as well as the electrical plugs powering it.

    Once you have the new valve it will pretty well explain itself, and the procedure is not difficult.

    The ice maker should not come into play, but as far as a diagram, there is none. The ice maker is non serviceable and if it fails, must be replaced as a complete unit.

What causes my ice maker to drip water?


HI,

This could be either the ice maker is old and the finish inside has depleted, the water valve is going bad or you had a jammed ice cube and now it overfilled. Many different reason this could happen. Does the ice cubes stick together with a bridge? Is the drip coming from the ice maker head unit? How is the ice in the pan its stored in, stuck together? In the pan, has the ice glaciered together? Need more information please. Thanks

Why is my Uline ice maker filling with water not ice ?


At first I wanted to say it has to fill with water to make ice but I know you mean the ice bin is filling with water. You either have an issue with the water control valve leaking or your timer isn't working properly. Listen for the water to flow and when it seems to shut off look at the tray fill spout and see if it actually stopped dripping. If it continues to drip (not flow normally) then the valve is leaking. If it isn't dripping but the water in the ice tray over flowed, then the issue is either with the timer or the adjustment is incorrect.

What I have seen in a thing like this is a simple water valve drip. Some of them drip like a faucet. This causes the cubes to stick together and all kinds of grief. I have your service manual.

Outside ice despenser is dripping, no ice


water dispenser -Your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking. disconnect the water line coming out of it and see if you have a slow drip. Try the dispenser to see if it's just drips after use.


ice maker - If it overfills and drips, look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water.

Ice maker seems to be dripping water onto ice in ice container


If it overfills and drips, look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water.

If it continuously drips, replace the water inlet valve on the back where the house water supply comes in.

Watch it when it fills with water. The fill tube could also be stopped up with ice. 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. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

The feeder tube for the ice maker freezes and water leaks inside


First we have to determine if the problem is a faulty water valve. Reason: faulty water valve can continue to supply water even after the IM or door dispenser is finished calling for water causing a drip feed freeze up problem, or water overflow condition in the ice maker (IM). Another common cause is unrelated, but caused by a blocked drain line often resulting in thick ice build up on the bottom of the freezer, water dripping onto the floor, or water dripping into the refrigerator (top freezer mount models only) and freezing near the lights or damper ducts after defrost. Fix for this problem is to remove evap panel and clear freezer drain line with hot water or compressed air. If this is not the case, and water is dripping out of IM supply line, remove IM H20 supply line from IM at back of appliance and see if the water seems to drip out, if so, replace the water valve. If water doesn't drip out at all, replace IM, or IM module depending on the model of refrigerator that you have as contacts in the IM are also responsible for calling for H20 supply. You will have no more problems after this.

Water Leaks from Ice Maker of Sub-Zero 642


Sounds like the water inlet valve to icemaker is leaking - not closing completely after filling the tray. Rare, but possible. Prove it by shutting off icemaker arm or switch. If that is the cause, the drip will continue.
If dripping stops when I/M is off, then it is ice blockage in I/M fill tube and or diverter funnel at end of ice tray. Remove I/M, clean ice from both, and re-assemble.
Replacing that valve (water supply to refrig connects to it in the back) should solve it.
