SOURCE: ice maker makes ice, but also drips water

cbscarter,
This may sound strange but you will find that the mold coating is peeling off of the aluminum mold. This causes the water to wick (climb) the loose coating and up over the top, leaking out making an ice clump on the ice maker and clumps ice in the container together. It would be easy enough for the average person to replace the ice make. Due to its age that would be smarter to replace than to repair the old one. It is a Whirlpool part #4317943 and comes with some instructions.

If this helped please rate me good, supertechks

SOURCE: My ice maker won't make ice.I have a Frigidaire

I had the same problem with my ice maker.
I took it apart and cleaned the three switches inside the icemaker
The switches are not a high enough amp rating so they burn the contacts. Keep in mine cleaning is temp fix.
I did mine about 4 months ago and still working.
I have new switches now that I will be installing as soon as it quits again. About $9.00 for new switches and about $130.00 for a new Icemaker!

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Kenmore ice maker problem

the problem is an unlevel icemaker to prove this do you see little droplets of water freezing from the icemaker or a remote possibilty is do you have to an R/O system and have you change the filter if unit has one.

SOURCE: ice maker over fills the ice cube tray over

most likely the i/m needs replaced. what happens is the coating inside the mold is peeling off and causing the cubes to stick and then melt the cubes instead of releasing them. when this happens it will cause the unit to overfill the next cycle and leak into the bucket.

SOURCE: ice cubes are turning into a clump of ice

I found a high density foam and a plastic retainer under the freezer drawer, inspected ice maker and found a wire with a rectangular senser hanging down. Removed freezer drawer and door to gain access to icemaker. Reinstalled foam piece and plastic retainer to lower front of icemaker (there are recess and a small retainiing tab) Reassembled freezer door and drawer, system working normally

Frigidaire PLHS67EESB0 ice maker stopped not making ice and the ice ejector keeps turning and the machine keeps filing with water and overflows


If the ice ejector turns constantly, and water flows with each turn, you have a bad limit switch inside ice maker. This switch stops the motor inside, and thus the ejector, and allows for a freeze cycle. There are other possible problems but i suggest just getting a new ice maker. Not that hard to change out if you have any mechanical skills.

My frigidaire side by side freezer freezes up and the filter in the refrigerator leaks water. It makes ice fine but will not freeze ice cream. theres a big clump of ice in the back which is under a cover...


the leaking water is the problem. it needs to be fixed, but till then defrost again, use a fan it speeds the process, SHUT OF WTER to ice maker. restart fridge it will work normally. now find parts needed to fix the ice maker water feed.
the leaking water overwhelms the defroster. and causes a coil freeze up, this impedes cooling and air circulation over the evaporator coils

Frigidare FRS23KF6CB manufactured 03/07 ice maker water fill wont shut off


There is a float in the icemaker which controls water height. I'm going to bet the float is jammed or the switch it controls is bad.
