SOURCE: Ice Maker

Likely that the water supply tube to the icemaker is frozen. It will be a white rubber tube on the right side of the icemaker. Warm it with a hair dryer, remove it from its aluminum tubing, and make sure there is no ice all the way back to where the supply tube comes from the water valve. After thawing, your icemaker should start working again.

Now..... why did it freeze? Most likely, there is a restricted airflow to the back of the unit, which is need to keep that aluminum supply tube just warm enough to assure all the water flow OUT of it into the icemaker, and doesn't freeze up on contact. Make sure your coils and the airspace under the fridge are completely clean (vacuuum them well) and it should cure the problem.

Check to make sure you freezer is at 0 to 5 degrees. If it is not the water valve to the ice maker will not even open.

Sounds like you have a problem with water valve/triple solenoid assembly. It controls the flow of water to the door and ice maker. I believe it comes as a complete unit.

Water overfilling the freeze tray on Whirlpool conquest ice maker


The overfilling is most likely caused by defective water control valve on the ice maker side. The replacement for your model is a=> W10408179 Water Inlet Valve

The water fill adjustment can be found in the Ice Maker Troubleshooting Service Manual These settings can cause too little or too much by turning the set screw so use caution. I will be here should you have questions or comments, Thanks Sea Breeze

Ge refrigeration model 20-25 icemaker not making ice



Fill ice maker with tap water and allow the water to freeze. If when the ice maker cycles and drops ice into ice bin it chooses not to refill with water at end of the cycle. That would point to the dual water control valve. If ice maker does nothing when filled with tap water that will indicate a defective ice maker. The model number you listed does not appear to be correct. Look around the fresh food section door frame and see what you have. This could be the ice maker or the dual water control valve causing this problem. Thanks Sea Breeze

Ice maker will not make ice,have water but no ice.


Many people see this as a problem but if you take a look you have two separate controls for the ice and water system. So what's next? Look for a model number around the fresh food section door and sometimes your model number you may have looked at it every time you open the door and did not realize that is what that is. Locating Your Model Number or lets go to Maytag=> HERE and in the pull down choose if your model is a side by side or other than a side by side. Neat Tool! So now back to your ice maker and being the way most ice makers are they have a side to the water valve on their own somewhere near the water control valve on back of your refrigerator and near floor on most. The ice maker in most cases tells that water valve when the ice maker needs water again so many times it is the problem anyway. If your ice maker has cubes in it and still will not drop the cubes then it is the possibly the ice maker causing the problem but if you fill the ice maker with tap water and it freezes and then dumps cubes into the ice bin then the problem is the water control valve on the back of your refrigerator. Here is a short clip below. And here is a search for=> Maytag Refrigerator Water Control Valves and a search for=> Maytag Refrigerator Ice Makers I hope this has helped, Thanks, Sea Breeze

I have a side by side model ACD2238HTS SN#13640707LJ. The ice dispenser door spring seems too strong and you have to reach up with your fingers to pull it open so the ice can come out.


Maybe excessive water dripping from the ice maker that cause the door to "lock-up" a bit. May need to adjust the water flow to ice maker. If that doesn't work, maybe the tempt is set above recommended level and causing the door to stick.

Icemaker leaks after refilling causing ice cubes to weld into a mass of ice.


I believe your water control valve on the back of refrigerator is leaking slowly and causing this. They are called dual water control valves because the ice maker work on one side and the water dispenser works on the other side. Most ice makers open the water valve forthe ice maker for 7.5 seconds just long enough to fill. Do you have your Sears model numer for example 321.54689 somewhere on your refrigerator or around door frame. Sea Breeze

Ice maker sequence is out of syncronization


I believe your ice maker is the reason for the problem. If you have a model number it is possible that parts are avaiable. Sometimes the complete ice maker will need to be replaced because the controls are electronic in some model ice makers. Could you send the model number of your Whirlpool Refrigerator? Thanks, Sea Breeze

Kenmore Ice Maker


Sounds like a water valve problem to me. Force the ice maker to cycle. (turn it off and let it get cold for at least an hour then turn it back on). Test for voltage on the ice maker side of the valve. The valve is usually in the back near the floor. Just follow the water line. Another solution. switch the wires on the water valve. then try the water dispenser and see if it makes the ice maker fill up. See if when the ice maker cycles water comes out the door. If the ice maker causes water in the door , replace the valve, If door switch causes ice maker to fill up replace ice maker again.

Fridge freezer door ice maker


the ice maker controls the seloniod the icemaker wire arm must be all the way down .just because the seloniod test good doesnt mean the valve seat isnt stuck the water valves open by your house water pressure if your filter is dirty this can also lower the pressure if the icemaker module is bad this also can cause it if you pull the front of the ice-maker off you will se a bunch of holes if you get a piece of 10 Gage house strip about 1/4 inch off either side and insert it into the holes marked t and h that will test cycle the ice maker they will be close together don't get shocked if the ice maker cycles and doesnt fill and the ice maker fill tube isn't frozen replace the water valve if the ice-maker doesn't cycle replace the brown motor module
