SOURCE: neither dispensor or icemaker works after replacing water lines

Try using an hairdryer or defrosting the unit completely , this often get rid of blockage caused by frozen lines fixing the problem.

The water lines can also be unblocked from dirt using a thin flexible shaft. This after defrosting.

If all that does not fix the problem, then you may need to replace the water valve, the icemaker solenoid, or the whole icemaker assembly.

SOURCE: Icemaker/water dispenser not working.

Just had to defrost the water tank inside the fridge for a few minutes. Using a waterproof heating pad with extension cord did the trick. Even a fridge needs a warm blanket from time to time.

SOURCE: Water drip

Hello, this sounds like you have a blockage in the drain tube, remove panel back/bottom of freezer..you may see ice build up...melt ice with hair dryer/heat gun...you will see a pan below evaporator...melt ice in pan...dry water up in pan with paper towel...now you should see a hole in pan that leads to drain tube...pour some hot water in pan..wait a couple minutes..mop up water and repeat this step 2-3 times....once you have done this find some flexible curtain wire or electrical wire..poke down the hole until you see the water drain..now it is clear..put back panel back and you are good to go. The reason you see water in the fridge is because the water has been leaking into the freezer and down the vent into the fridge instead of running into the drain hole...Please feel free to comment again if you have any other question. Mike

Which water line or lines do I connect to refrigerator, model # ED22RFXW01, man. 08/99


It's advisable to go with flexible plastic tube with sweet water supply. Please follow the instrction as per video attached.

Even if your refrigerator comes withan automatic icemaker, you will need to connect it to a water supply for it tomake ice. While this is not a particularly difficult job it requires someknowledge of plumbing and the use of tools. ThingsYou'll Need:
  • Compression Nuts
  • Knife Or Scissors
  • T-valves
  • 1/4-inch Copper Or Plastic Tubes
  • Drill Bits
  • Variable-speed Drills
  • Drill Bits
Read theinstruction manual that came with your refrigerator. Specific instructions forhooking up the icemaker may be included. Locate thepipe nearest the icemaker that carries cold water. Most often, this is the coldwater pipe that connects to the kitchen sink. Install at-valve in the main cold water line - not on the 3/8-inch faucet tubes - sothat there are two outlets: one to the sink and one to the icemaker supplyline. Turn offthe water. Put asleeve and compression nut over the line that will supply the icemaker in orderto tightly connect it to the water line. Turn thewater back on, and, holding the end of the tubing in the sink or over a bucket,flush the line to remove any debris. Turn the water off again. Snake theline from the water source to the icemaker connection, drilling holes in thebacks of cabinets if you have to in order to push the line through. Find theicemaker inlet from the refrigerator and attach the other end of the line usinganother compression nut. Turn thewater back on. Throw awaythe first few containers of ice to be sure the line is completely clean beforeyou use the ice.

Not making ice unless I pour water in tray, water does not flow from small plastic line that feeds tray. I did clean screen at suppy line.


It could be the water valve or water switch in the icemaker. Now it doesnt call for water until the thermostat is satisfied.Now if you pour water and it goes thru and dumps into the bucket I would try to change the valve.

Model #ed5lvaxvqoo; ice maker quite working, no water WHIRLPOOL


Due to your refrig having the ice bin on the door , it could be a little bit more difficult to diagnose . Pour about 1/2 cup of water into the icemaker . If it doesn't dump , then the problem is the icemaker . When you open the freezer door , does the laser lite flash 2 times then pause then 2 times etc.? If the lite does not flash , it means the icemaker is in the harvest mode (dumping) . If stuck in the harvest mode , replace the icemaker . If the icemaker dumps the frozen cubes , then the black fill tube above the fill cup , could be frozen , or the water inlet valve is bad . If you feel ice in the black tube ,(water valve bad due to slow drop leak ) you'll need to pull the fridge from the wall , and see if there is a plastic coupling on the tube going up to the icemaker . If not , you should get one in case of future problems . Cut the tube (or disconnect the fitting ) (if you can blow thru it , black tube is not stopped up with ice ) and turn the icemaker off . Turn the freezer setting down a number or two . Go by ocassionally to see if you can blow thru the line . This water line goes between the top of refrig and the inner liner . Bad design because if it freezes , no way to get to it . Can try hair dryer2.gif on top of refrig . I have known it to take several days for this line to thaw .

I have a Living Water II installed under my sink. I would like to add a line to my refrigerator's ice-maker line. The plastic tubing supplied with Ecoquest and the line from the refrigerator ice-maker are...


Although your solution will work to supply water, the flow to the icemaker will probably not be high enough to turn the Living Water on to actually ozonate the water. Ecoquest does have a unit available, made just for icemakers.

How to hook up water line from sink to icemaker.


You have to put a T between the cold water valve and the faucet, then run a plastic or copper line to the refrigerator(the size could vary from 1/4' to 3/8", you have to look at the water valve in the bottom back of the refrigerator).

Not getting water from the plastic valve to the icemaker (Have water from the bottom of frig to the valve) --- any ideas? by the way the thing on the icemaker is flipped down so that is not the solution.


#1 Defective switch or thermal fuse in Icemaker not sending voltage to the valve.
#2 Defective water inlet valve
#3 Frozen fill tube to Icemaker (the tube that goes through the back wall and feeds the icemaker)

Icemaker fill tube keeps freezing up.


The reason your fill tube to the icemaker is freezing up time and time again is simply the valve, or valves (water valves) that dispense water to the door and icemaker. It most likely always is the icemaker side because it is always harvesting ice and it gets used the most. The only way to stop this is to replace the water valves almost always located in the rear of the Refrigerator with the supply line coming off the wall the valves with one or two electric plugs that energize the solinoid type valve when unit calls for water. Tired of getting out the hair dryer and melting the ice that plugs up the fill tube? This is the only solution. Some of the time is because lime, or other deposits in the water will not allow the plunger to rest in the complete closed position. When the valve is energized for the amount of time needed it lifts the plunger allowing water to flow through. Then when it goes back down
to the closed position it has a small gap that causes water to seep through. There you have it! It's fixed! Unplug unit before replacing valves.If you have a double valve system make sure your lines go back to the original spot. Some of them have a 1/4" line with plastic compression fitting for the icemaker and a 3/8" for the water at the door. Some have both 1/4" compression fittings coming out like "Amana" so once again, make sure to get all lines back to the same possition. Free info. from-

U-line BI98 water line leak


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.
