No water to the ice maker

Hi, there is no water to the ice maker! The water line is not blocked. The water is turned on. Recently replaced the ice maker. Temperature in freezer is -0 to -10. I see the ice maker cycle through every hour or so.
Is there a part on the system that tells the water valve when to send water to the ice maker? If so, where is it and what is it called? Please advise with any suggestions? Thank You, John

    Thank You for your resposes. There is water to the valve. I actually swaped the yellow connector (yellow is for drinking water, green is for water to the ice maker) with the green connector at the valve. When I push for drinking water, the ice maker try fills up. So my thought is that there is no signal/voltage going through the green connector?Ant further thoughts? Thank You, John

    no water to the ice maker. when the ice maker cycles there was no voltage to the solonoid to open the water valve. replaced the valve and the ice maker. water valve on the other side of cabinet has voltage to it when i push the switch to fill a glass of water.you have mentioned in your posting for the fix was to turn the valve.? please explain.

    Hi everyone, I have determined that some how there is no voltage/signal going to the water valve that fills the ice trays up with water. So, at this point the next step would be to purchase and replace the water valve$$$.There is a quick fix, no very pretty, use a small jumper wire the goes to a switch (like a house light switch) between the yellow and green positive contact connector at the water valve. With the switch in the on position, with a cup push the drinking water tab on the front of the refrigerator for about 7 seconds, during that 7 seconds the ice try will fill with water. Be sure to put the switch back in the off position when finished. I did this late at night after being very frustrated with the refrigerator after trying and taking everything apart to fix it. The funny thing is that now that I have installed my shad tree repair, the valve works correctly every now and then.

Thank you for your answere that was previously posted for this same problem but i am sorry that i am not understanding which valve needs to be turned and and i should be good to go. are you recommending the water supply valve inthe basement? that one is turned on. are you recommending the water inlet valve behind the fridge? there is no way to turn that its mounted to a bracket and can only mount one way. please explain a little more. thank you.

    thank you sunvideo 1 for adding a further comment on trouble shooting this no water to ice maker.problem.. i have changed the water valve, and the icemaker already.i have read rhe schematic for the fridge, and the wiring diagram and schematic for the icemaker and from what i can make out of it is the icemaker generates the signal to the water valve when it needs to fill with water. and the valve is not receiving it. so that tends me to believe that a wire or wires may be pnched or open that sends down the voltage( signal) to the valve to open. thanks again. sam.

Was the fill valve replaced recently? If so did you make sure there was no debris etc., inside the inlet of the valve before connecting? If the water goes through the filter first, it often does disconnect the outlet line from the filter, then see if water is coming out and if its a nice steady stream. If its OK, your line between there and the ice maker is blocked.

Ice maker stopped making ice


hi,

The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

The ice maker is producing ice poorly When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve.

First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.

Door dispenser not working


Is the ice maker working properly? There is a water filter in the refrigerator through which both the ice maker and water dispenser are supplied and over time it will slow down the flow and eventually block. Have you changed it recently? Often, ice cubes will get smaller as it blocks and the ice maker will also quit.
Also, have you checked the water supply line that goes to the ice maker and water dispenser? It should be a small diameter copper or plastic line that connects to the back of the refrigerator.

Ice maker not working


Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. It’s on the back where the water supply comes in. 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 blocking the fill tube.. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

My water works on my refrigerator but my ice maker doesn't work.


Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If it freezes and dumps , replace the water valve ( the piece the wall water line connects to on the refrig ) . If it freezes and does not dump , replace the ice maker . Also check the rake ( rotating arm ) , to see if a small piece of ice could be blocking it , keeping it from turning . If so , the small cube could be an indication of not enough water going into the ice maker ( replace the water valve ) .

Ice maker not making ice. Water disp inside frig disp water.


the line that gives water to the ice maker, every time the water comes down it lives a drip of water that turns to ice blocking the line, get some hot water and a towel and place the hot wet towel on top of the line intel it melts the ice in side the line. it happens to my frige at list once a year. if that is not the problem the valve that supplies water tho the ice maker needs replacing, it's behind the frige at the bottom, where the line coming from the house meets the frige.
