Ice maker problems

I have taken out the water feed line that goes to the i/m and is not frozen also i took a straw from the inside where the water would fill the ice cube tray and put it threw the opening and was able to see it on the back side of the fridge where the water line was.

I have seen alot more module problems on that unit then valve problems but i have seen some valve coils go out. First turn the ice maker off for an hour or so then move the arm back down. If it goes around and doesn't fill with water with the valve all hooked back up properly then your looking at a valve. If the ice maker doesn't go all the way around or doesn't start at all pull the white front cover off, it just snaps on, and see if a little white plastic peice falls out or if you can just pull the big round gear off. There is power behind the gear put the cover back on don't change it with unit plugged in.

How can i turn off the water function on the door but not the ice, the water line keeps leaking on the back of the frig


When I had this problem the water was coming from the top right rear where the water tube feeds the ice maker. The water line INSIDE the frig that feeds the ice maker occasionally freezes up causing an obstruction which causes the water to leak out the rear. This can only happen when the icemaker activates the water feed. You can remove the tube fitting without fear because the valve that feeds water through the line is at the bottom rear of the unit. If the line is frozen inside I remove the ice bin and tray and use a hair dryer to melt the ice.
I have a similar problem with the condenser fan making a tapping/clacking noise which is also a result of ice building up on that. Wish I had a different frig but for now the hair dryer will have to do.

If the problem is only that you don't have any flow of water in ice maker then you should check the water solenoid, the water filter if its cogged or water container if it is frozen,
In any case the Ice maker is abot $140

Ice maker won't work


Your inlet tube that goes to the icemaker may be frozen. To Check: Shut off water supply to Fridge, disconnect the water line that goes to the icemaker at top back. Use a flexible item to insert in the water line connection. I used a zip tie. If the flexible item won't all the through to the ice maker, the line is frozen. Thaw out the tube from inside the freezer with a hair dryer. Re-connect everything, you now have ice . . . Solution #2: You may have to replace your "Water Inlet Valve" located at bottom right rear of Fridge. Easy to do, just follow the color codes, be sure and shut off the water.

Ice maker quit, water still dispenses


even though you still have water dispensing you may have a frozen line to the ice-maker, take out your ice-maker and check to see if the feeder tube has ice in it, take a drinking straw and insert it into the feeder tube for the ice-maker and see if you can push it all the way to the valve, it's lite enough not to damage the feeder and strong enough to break up whatever Ice might be blocking the tube

Ice maker


My wife installed a new filter and didn't purge (AKA flush) it enough. As a result, my ice maker quit. Since there was air in the line, the water feed into the ice maker froze. You should check your water feed. In your freezer, look to the top right part of your ice maker. You will see a short (2 inches or so) black tube that feeds water into a piece a plastic on your ice maker that looks like a small cup. Squeeze the tube to see if frozen. If it is, there is probably also a frozen pool of water in the 'ice maker' cup. You can use a hairdryer but be very careful as you can melt the plastic. My service guy took out the ice maker and ran it under hot water. He used a small screw driver to get the ice out of the black hose. Removing the ice maker looked pretty easy. You can remove the ice maker door (it justs snaps out). the ice maker also just slides out. If you are not comfortable removing the wire connection, there's enough plat in the wire to allow you access to the frozen cup of water. You could pour hot water over the ice maker while it remains connected. When done, cut power to the entire frig for about a minute. This will reset the ice maker. Note that you may have a wait a few minutes to actually hear the ice maker fill with water since it has a timer mechanism.

Ice Maker problem


There is a water valve that "feeds" the ice maker. When the Ice maker makes ice it sends a signal to the water valve, it opens for approx. 7 seconds and fills ice tray with water. Another cause of no water in IM could be frozen water line where it feeds the IM.

Ice maker wont make ice


It is quite possible that the water line which feeds the ice maker is frozen. Whirlpool manufactures a "REPLACEMENT" water line that solves this problem. Fortunatly our problem occured while the refrigerator was still under warranty. I would suggest that anyone owning a Whirlpool product purchase the longest extended warranty available! They USED to manufacture a quality product. But I guess they just don't care about the consumer any longer. It is all about money!!
