Question about GALAXY Microsystems 55622

1 Answer

My ice maker did not make ice, and now the water won't come out either!

Last Tuesday, the water department worked on the line down the street from our house. The water pressure was almost nonexistent, but I don't know whether or not the water was actually cut off. My water dispenser was spurting the water for a few hours when I filled up my water bottles, but that soon was okay. The ice maker, however, has not produced ice since then. A friend told me that there was probably air in the line, so I moved the fridge out, got behind there, used pliers, and unhooked the tube so that the air was released. I put the tube back on and tightened up the nut.
Now, I neither have ice NOR water!!
What do I do now????????? PLEASE HELP!!!!!

Hi,

Did u already check that the temperature is set under 17  degrees?

If it is, i was searching another post, and here
http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/check/inletvalve.php
you can find a picture of the intel valve, you should check if its not turning off, and if it is running continously without any problem.

go here and look at part number 810,this is the water tank in the fridge section,get a hair dryer and heat up the tank where the water lines connect to it,also g.e. has problems with the water line in the freezer door the line freezes up.also when was the last time you changed the water filter?try this,open the freezer door and remove the bottom kickplate,on the left side you'll find a connector for the water line,disconnect it shut the door and hit the water dispenser,if water comes out of line where you disconnected it then you know the line in the door is frozen,if no water comes out i would change the filter and it that doesn't work i'd have to say you have a bad water valve.one more thing and this might sound crazy but if i didn't see it myself i wouldn't believe it,when you went to dispense water have you ever noticed that the condenser fan motor would sound like it was slowing down and also the strip in the middle where the doors close together touch it to see if it's hot,i've found three mother boards bad from this,i'd dispense water, and the fans would slow down, i hope i'm not confusing you by telling you this,lets stick with the basic things first disconnect the water line under the freezer door and behind the kickplate,shut the door and hit the dispenser,if water comes out of the hose the water line is frooze in the door,if no water comes out,heat up the water tank with a hair dryer,after a while like 5 to 10 minutes hit the dispenser but water will leak out the tube if the tanks frozen,if that doesn't do the trick i would change the water filter and if that doesn't work bad water valve,if you look down where the kickplate is you should find a tech sheet that will tell you how to jump out the ice maker,now what did you change out the ice maker?you said you changed two parts,what's happening that you changed the ice maker,was it not getting water to it,i mean if you're not getting water through the door and no water to ice maker,you either have a bad water valve or filter,start there and heat up the water tank,if that's frozen you won't get any wateralso look at this it will tell you how to start the harvest cycle on the ice maker,i beleive you shut it off for 20 seconds,turn it back on and move the arm in and out like three times.

Frigidaire side by side water line clog


Hi -I understand that your unit is still not producing any ice or dispensing water. Some of the following steps you have already confirmed. I suggest confirmed the steps below and see if any is helpful :

1. It may be turned off. Look for the wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If the wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. If so, try one of these: If your ice maker has a small red plastic lever, lower it to lower the wire. If there's no plastic lever, simply lower the wire. In either case, the ice maker should begin producing ice again.

2. Also make sure that the temperature is 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly.

3. When was the last time the filter was changed? Most side-by-side filters are recommended to be change approximately every 6-9 months depending on your water usage and frequency. The ice maker fill tube may be blocked with ice or have a clogged water filter. If so, melt the blockage using a hair dryer-but be careful to not melt any plastic parts!

4. Also replace the water shut-off valve or water-inlet valve, or both, if necessary. The ice maker head assembly may have broken parts. Look to see if the gears are broken. Check to see if the small plastic arms that rest against the ice rake are broken. If the ice maker head assembly is modular and you've found broken parts, you can just replace it.

Water won't dispense but ice maker works


Most likely the valve has failed. Usually located in the back of the refrigerator, near the bottom - otherwise, follow your water line (feed from the house water supply).

Ice maker won't make ice


This problem is very common.The ice maker water passing line gets clogged or blocked by ice cube or gets frosted by ice or the water valve,which lets water to ice maker,tray, that valve gets faulty.

The ice maker not working.-------------

Its the problem of water inlet valve. It's a dual valve. This valve has two tubes in it. One for water dispenser and one for ice maker chamber. The one side of valve is working, but other side of the valve is not working. The valve is got stuck in one position

Ice maker not working on a samsung rf265aabp. water to selenoid no power to selenoid.


You won't have power to the solenoid till the ice maker dumps ice and sends signal requesting water. It only last for about 7 seconds.
Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

The ice maker in my whirlpool gold refrigerator Model No, GR2FHTXTBOO, is not working.


Hello jitkagardner,
Welcome


You said, The ice maker in my whirlpool gold refrigerator Model No, GR2FHTXTBOO, is not working.

How old is the fridge?
When have you last changed the water filter.
Should be down below at the front grille!
Try these tasks!

If the ice maker is not producing ice or not enough ice
Refrigerator connected to a water supply and the supply
shutoff valve turned on? Connect refrigerator to water
supply and turn water shutoff valve fully open.
• Kink in the water source line? A kink in the line can reduce
water flow. Straighten the water source line.
• Ice maker turned on? Make sure wire shutoff arm or switch
(depending on model) is in the ON position.
• New installation? Wait 24 hours after ice maker installation
for ice production to begin. Wait 72 hours for full ice
production.
• Freezer door closed completely? Firmly close the freezer
compartment door. If the freezer compartment door will not
close all the way, see "The doors will not close completely."
• Large amount of ice recently removed? Allow 24 hours for
ice maker to produce more ice.
• Ice cube jammed in the ice maker ejector arm?
Remove ice from the ejector arm with a plastic utensil.
• Water filter installed on the refrigerator? Remove filter and
operate ice maker. If ice volume improves, then the filter may
be clogged or incorrectly installed. Replace filter or reinstall it
correctly.
• Reverse osmosis water filtration system connected to
your cold water supply? This can decrease water pressure.

Let me know how it goes!

Ice maker not working


is there a filter on the water line? if so check and replace as neccesary-usually all water going into a fridge ice maker is filtered if it was installed properly for fresh tasting ice......if not there usually is a valve where the water line connects to one of your houses water line ....be careful with that but make sure it is all the way open......maybe try cleaning or replacing the lines if it comes down to it. let me know what happens.
