Good day,
If it has a filter system, then that would be your first step. Replace the filter.
If done already, then either the water valve mounted in the bottom back of the machine is swelling internally and must be replaced, or the water supply from the house is not delivering the water at high enough pressure.
To test the water pressure, shut the house off at the main meter. Remove the house water line from the valve and point it into a bucket while someone else turns the water on for about a 15 second count. It should come out smartly. If not you will need to clean the lines and fittings where it hooks to the house supply or replace them as needed.

How do you make an ice bowl? Is it something that I could do easily at home?


Put ice cubes in the bottom of a large bowl. Put a smaller bowl inside the bigger bowl and using a wooden skewer, insert flowers between the ice cubes. Now add some cold water to fill the space between the ice cubes and tapes the bowls together so they don't' slip around and freeze it.

To remove the bowls after freezing you will need to use some warm water to ease it out of the bowl.

I was told that my new refridgerator will come with an automatic ice maker. What does that mean?


These days, modern fridges come with automatic ice makers that are built into the fridge itself. The fridge automatically fills the ice holders with water that then freeze into cubes. You can then tip the ice onto a tray that is removable and then the fridge will automatically re-fill.

My ice maker doesn't make enough ice cubes


Is the ice maker itself filling normally, meaning where the cubes are made gets enough water to cover the complete area or just a few slots? If not then check the fill tube where the water comes into the ice maker to make sure no ice has formed blocking the water from coming in.
Now if ice production in general has slowed, going from every 45 minutes or so to like every 6 hours, then your machine more than likely isn't getting cold enough. The ice maker requires the temperature be at least 10 degrees F or below for it to function properly.

I have a Maytag MSD2454GRQ side by side refrigetator. I have had a problem with ice building up in the ice bin under the auger creating a lot of noise when despensing ice. When ice build-up is removed...


Hello,

That adjustment screw on the side of the icemaker under the cover is a minor adjustment that can be adjusted to slighly increase/decrease the cube size so in essence the amount of water that enters the mold...its a fairly minor adjustment and may make a smaller or larger cube depending on its adjusted. If ya look carefully their is a small hole is the brass piece their and by turning that screw if the holes moves to the left its a smaller cube and to the right its a larger cube.

Having said all that now then if ya find your still having problems with it read this tip i wrote to see what the actual problem is going to be.

I have a Kenmore Elite side-by-sr ide refrigerator Model 106. The ice making system is putting too much water in the ice tray, making the cubes too big. These large cubes are clogging up the dispenser. ...


With out the full model number it is hard to say. Most 106 model referigators have a modular ice maker. If you take the cover off of the front of the ice maker and look on the right hand side of the motor module you will notice a small plastic adjustment screw. If you turn this screw you can adjust your water fill time to the ice maker.

My GE Profile refrig ice maker makes hollow ice cubes. Why would this happen?


Not enough water is being pumped into the icemaker. The water pressure in the water line coming into the refrigerator may be too low, perhaps due to a blockage somewhere.

Move the refrigerator enough to get behind it. Turn off the water at the small valve which connects the water line from the house plumbing to the tube going into the refrigerator. Get a bucket. Remove the refrigerator water line from the on-off valve (there should be a compresson nut holding it on). Point the incoming water line into the bucket and open the valve. Do you have a good flow of water? If so, either there is a blockage in the tubing within the refrigerator or the water valve at the bottom of the back of the refrigerator is malfunctioning.

GE top freezer refrigerator automatic ice cube maker leaks water into the freezer, and eventually on the floor. Water seems to be coming from the area that fill up to make more ice cubes.


If it is leaking water in the freezer it will more than likely freeze amongst the ice cubes causing a block of ice.

It is more than likely leaking at the rear of the unit, near the valve or fill tube for the ice, this will run up the rear wall of the unit.

Kenmore refer #70162990 ice maker leaking into storage tray


Please confirm you have given the complete model number.

If the icemaker has a bail wire to control how much ice is in the bin, there is a fill switch inside the front cover of the ice maker which allows you to increase or decrease the amount of fill.

You may also have a cracked or corroded ice mold. Check by filling the icemaker with water manually, and watching to see if it drips once the initial overfill stops dripping. This would also be indicated by the ice cubes being smaller than usual.

Amana ice make problem


there is a screw adjustment that accounts for the variations in water pressure among various installations. Without one, problems such as yours will be widespread. Pry open the plastic cover over the icemaker. Look for a screw that has markings and/or arrows near it. I believe that turning the screw counterclockwise will decrease the amount of water allowed in. Experiment with each turn direction as necessary. You should see the amount of water fill with a flashlight. A proper fill should be about 3/4 to 7/8 filled. Never fill 100%. The cube ejectors may break then.
