Is there a water flow adjustment?


Yes. On most refrigerator ice makers by the front panel on the right hand side there is a small screw adjuster that controls the amount of time that the water solenoid closes to admit water in. Adjusting it changes the size of the ice cubes from small to large or vice versa.

Adjust amount of water to ice maker


there is a small setting on the icemaker module, but it only makes a VERY small difference. you would want to fix the water supply issue though. the icemaker fills a ceartain amount of time, not to a level, so if you increase the time, it is still filling so slow that it won't make a big difference.
3 possibillities for slow water flow
1. flow coming into the fridge is too low- plumbing issue, likely at the water valve under your sink.
2. Water filter needs to be changed every year
3. Bad solenoid valve in the fridge. it is where the water enters the fridge.

Small drip out of ice maker. Ice cubes dump out of ice maker are sort of siamese. I.E., they are chained together by a tiny amount of ice.


You are getting too much water to your icemaker, either faulty water valve or extremely high pressure or extremely low pressure either way will cause too much water in your icemaker, extreme low causes water valve not to shut off, high pressure lets too much water through when it opens. These pressures are not adjustable in the fridge. You can on certain models adjust the amount of time the valve is on, per the icemaker, it usually will have a screw on the side of it towards the front of the icemaker.

GE Fridge icemaker is not working - Help!!


I installed a new icemaker (cost approx $100) and its making ice. Very easy to install yourself (remove 4 screws holding part below icemaker, then unplug icemaker, and unscrew the 2 screws holding it in place.). Good luck-

Our ice machine does not make full ice cubes. they are small and not complete, they are full of holes.


The icemaker requires a water pressure of 1.5 - 8.5kgf/cm2. It is acceptable if the water supply fills a cup of 180cc with water in 3 seconds. The icemaker produces small cubes if the water fed into it is not enough and lumped together if too much water is supplied. In order to obtain the desired size of ice cubes, the amount of water supplied to the ice maker needs to be adjusted. Adjust the valve supplying water to the icemaker or the unit in general in such a way that right amount of water fills the ice tray.

I have a Kitchenaid Side By Side model KSR25FKWH05. The ice maker is not working, but the water still comes out of the water dispensor on the door. I did have the water to the entire house off last weekend...


check to see if there is ice in the icemaker, if not, put a small amount of water, like 6 ounces in it with a glass. if it kicks out some cubes, you have a bad watervalve.

My icemaker overflows and does not produce cubes but a solid block of ice over the unit and down into the cube reception tray and over the bottom of the freezer unit. Have removed all the ice and restarted...


Hi
you need to adjust the water level, carefully remove the front cover of the ice maker itself.
On the front of the ice maker, there is a small nylon screw that controls the water intake amount.
If the screw is turned to the Right, it will Decrease the amount of water entering the ice maker.
If the screw is turned to the Left, it will Increase the amount of water entering the ice maker.
The screw should only be turned 1/4 of a turn at a time; therefore, more than one adjustment may be required.
The maximum adjustment is one full turn in either direction. Additional rotation could damage the ice maker..
OR
Dirty icemaker water valve or broken valve can cause icemaker to overflow.

Ice maker is leaking small amounts of water.


Is the amount of water to much for the tray size , you can adjust it with the small screw behind the icemaker cover . is the line entering the back of the icemaker jammed up to far causing it to spray ? Or is the icemaker or refrigerator not level
