SOURCE: slow water flow
dadcanfix. There are two possibilities here. One could be the water valve itself, clogged or not seating or opening properly. The second would be the water tank on the refrigerator side, partially frozen. I believe they have a kit now with coiled tubing that replaces that tank because of the trouble they had with it. Remove the refer drawers and take a hair dryer and go over the tank lightly. See if that improves the water flow. Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: Ice Maker too slow
bayfishr, I'll try to give you an idea on how this thing works and let you do some checks. The cycle is controlled by temp. The harvesting process begins when the IM thermostat closes signaling the harvest temp has been reached. The closed thermostat supplies power to the IM motor and heater. Therefore the colder you keep it, the faster the production unless something has failed. I see a lot of heaters fail. You can test this. When the IM starts it cycle, test the voltage from L to H on the module,they will be marked. Should read 120V. The heater on the bottom of the mold should be getting hot. Disconnect the harnes and ohm it. Should ohm out at approx 72 ohms, same test points. If this checks good, check the center wheel on the module itself. Two clips keep the wheel in place. If one is cracked off, the IM will not fucntion properly. Other than colder temps, there is no way to adjust the speed of the cycle. Keep the flap in front of the ice-maker down so that the cold air is drawn across that IM. Catriver.

SOURCE: Water not flowing into ice maker
yes there is a problem with the water valve or the fill tube that puts water into the ice maker is frozen not letting water into the ice maker

SOURCE: Ice Maker
Likely that the water supply tube to the icemaker is frozen. It will be a white rubber tube on the right side of the icemaker. Warm it with a hair dryer, remove it from its aluminum tubing, and make sure there is no ice all the way back to where the supply tube comes from the water valve. After thawing, your icemaker should start working again.
Now..... why did it freeze? Most likely, there is a restricted airflow to the back of the unit, which is need to keep that aluminum supply tube just warm enough to assure all the water flow OUT of it into the icemaker, and doesn't freeze up on contact. Make sure your coils and the airspace under the fridge are completely clean (vacuuum them well) and it should cure the problem.

Had the same problem. Chances are that the water has frozen in the supply tube, not allowing water into the maker. you will need to unplug and thaw out your fridge entirely to thaw it out. I used a hair dryer pointed at the filler tube to defrost it.

Check the shutoff arm, the shutoff arm fails to move upward when the ice bucket
the water pressure. If there is not
enough pressure, the ice maker will not have enough water to make ice.If
water flow pressure is good, check solenoid valve activate and also
Locate your ice maker, remove the ice bucket. Pull the cover
off the end of the ice maker. Locate the holes "V" and "L". Take a paper clip
(jump clip) and tape. Straight the clip and put tape in middle. Hold the taped
side and insert the clip into "V" and "L". This sends the power to water valve.
If water goes into ice-maker, water valve is good. If notreplace solenoid.
Check the freezer temperature. The proper freezer temperature should be around 5 degrees. The warmer it is in the freezer, the more difficult it is to make ice. thanks, helpful?
