You will have to replace the Mixer valve. Its what the water line from the wall is connected to on the fridge.<br /> <br /> If this was helpful please rate me.<br />IMUFO2<br />Leo Ponder Appliance-Tyler,Texas<br /><a rel='nofollow' href="mailto:imufo2@sbcglobal.net">imufo2@sbcglobal.net</a>

Ice Maker WR30X0327 Freezing Over I have an


We have extremely hard water in the East Mountains of NM. Our refrigerator Ice Makers only lasted about a year before the Calcium from the underground Calcium just killed them. I solved the problem by buying, from ebay, a small restaurant ice-maker. I Always fill it with filtered water, and it has been chugging away for years. Our water tested Harder than an Hot-tub maker had ever seen, even after going through our old, Sears, water-filter. Ergo - how hard is your water? Could that be the problem. Just a thought.

Adjusting Ice Maker Fill


Use a flat-head screwdriver to remove the screws on the ice maker's front access panel, and then remove the panel.

  • Locate the adjustment screw, located about mid-point on the side of the ice maker. Do not turn the crew more than one full turn in either direction.
  • Turn the screw clockwise ½ turn to decrease the water fill level.
  • Turn the screw counterclockwise ½ turn to increase the water fill level.
  • Close the access panel and restore the screws. Turn the refrigerator back on.

    My freezer is not freezing anymore please help as can not afford a new one ..thank you


    Hi,
    Follow the steps mentioned below to solve the problem:
    First remove the ice bin and look inside the mold of the ice maker to see if it is full of ice. If the ice sensing arm is down ( on position) and the ice maker is full of ice, there is a failure inside the ice maker and the ice maker should be replaced.
    If there is no ice in the ice maker, look at the fill tube on the rear of the ice maker. If the fill tube is frozen up the ice maker can't fill.
    You can defrost the fill tube with a hair dryer.
    The water valve on the rear of the refrigerator supplies water to the water dispenser and the ice maker. Since the water dispenser is working, the only line that could be blocked runs up the back of the cabinet and attaches to the fill tube for the ice maker. The water valve could be bad and not sending water to the ice maker.
    If the fill tube freezes again you should replace the water valve.
    Hope this helps.

    Our ice maker makes hollow ice cubes. Why?


    Your icemaker is not getting enough water to adequatly fill the tray. Before you adjust it, check the status of the refrigerator's waterfilter. If it's old and clogged replace. Next, wait for the tray to fill, and check the level water before it has a chance to freeze. (or take the frozen tray out and allow to thaw). The tray should be about 75% or more full of water. If not, there is an adjustment that can be made to extend the amount of time the solenoid stays open (which means more time for the water to fill the trays). Good luck!

    Whirlpool refrigerator will not make ice


    This is almost always due to a faulty shutoff valve. The valve is at the back, where the water line connects to the refrigerator. Turn off the water supply, remove the water line with a wrench. You should be able to take out the valve with a few screws and by removing one or two wiring clips and the plastic line on the other side leading to the fridge. A new one costs about $60 - $80 at a appliance parts store. Bring the old one with you, and the refrig. model number, and make sure the new one looks the same as the old.

    The problem stems from the valve continuing to leak a bit of water to the icemaker after it fills the tray and shuts off. This trickle of water freezes and blocks the line, so matter how many times you defrost it, it will just happen again.

    Sub-Zero 632 Ice Maker Leaking into Ice Bucket


    Ice Maker is overflowing and leaking into the ice bucket: There are several things to check for.
    Go for the easy stuff first, make sure the icemaker is level, some of the plastic liner fridge's will move and allow the icemaker to tilt over and leak. Other troublemakers..... the fill valve
    staying on and over filling the icemaker..... the finish sometimes comes off the icemaker body and all the ice cubes don't come out. This will allow the new water to fill on top of an icemaker
    that still has a ice cube or two left inside the body, if you have had trouble with black specs in your ice cubes, this may have been the beginning of your finish problem on the icemaker body.
    On the module style ice makers (Whirlpool, Maytag Family, Sub Zero) the printed circuit in the
    module head often wears and the contacts become too long and allow the icemaker to over fill = new ice maker or new module head.
    waterfilladjustment.jpg
    Older style icemakers: This gear is bad for breaking and the icemaker quits turning to eject the ice.
    You can remove the front cover to see the gear.
    This is a common parts breakdown of the older style icemakers

    Water fill volume: The water fill adjustment screw will change the fill volumes by changing the fill time.
    One half to one full turn usually ( approx ) is equal to 20cc ( 0.68oz ) to 40 cc.
    The correct fill is usually 130 to 150 cc ( 4.5 to 5.0 oz ).
    When a water valve is replaced the fill volumes must be re-checked!
