Make sure that your water for the fridge is open.
I didn't understand why you replace the timer.
If the water is open and you put a new valve than you gonna need a new ice maker.

Fix icemaker


Start at the water valve at back of unit and work your way to the ice maker. Make sure the hose at the back of the frig isn't block. Also that the arm on the maker is down and in the on position. If all this checks, then go back to the solenoid that turns the water on and off to the ice marker.

My whirlpool ed20db ice maker isn't making ice. Inlet tube is frozen solid


Thanks for the model number. The water control valve=> W10245167 Water Inlet Valve will need replaced when this happens. Problem allows water to leak slowly into the ice maker and fill tube can become solid very quickly, or very messy ice formations coming down from ice maker, Thanks John Tripp Appliance 911

Kenmore elite in door ice maker is not working... 106.5770*701 water dispensor in door works, infrared sensor and on switch seem to be working properly and bin was removed defrosted and replaced and...


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
Often the reason ice makers slow or stop ice production is because the freezer compartment has gradually warmed up above 17 Deg F and the ice maker thermostat will not start an ice harvest cycle. What causes this gradual warming is usually the result of either an evaporator fan running slow or an automatic defrost circuit problem caused by a fault defrost timer/control defrost heating element or defrost thermostat / thermistor.
You can use this manual to troubleshoot the ice maker:

or

Note that jumpering T to H requires the ice maker thermostat to sense a termp of 14 - 16 Deg F for the ice harvest cycle to start. If by jumpering T - H under the ice maker front cover the ice maker does not cycle then either the freezer compartment is too warm or the ice maker thermostat is bad.
If it cycles and does not add water... then the inlet water valve solenoid has failed or the ice maker module is not supplying power to the inlet water valve.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Kenmore side by side. No water getting to the ice maker. Water in the door works fine. Have already replaced the filter.


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.

The water dispenser is working fine, but there is not water going to the ice maker. The ice maker is turned on. I have removed the filter and put in the bypass plug. Any suggestions?


Switch the conectors going to the inlet valve.  Then open the freezer door, hold the switch to make the freezer think its closed and push the water button.  If water comes out by the ice maker then the valve is good and your ice maker needs to be replaced. If no water comes out the inlet valve needs to be replaced

Frigidaire Model # GLRS267dzw2 ice maker isn't filling up with water too make ice.


As every technician knows , a water and ice dispensor refrig , has a dual water inlet valve . Just because the water dispensor works , does not mean the coil for the ice maker is working . Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If it dumps the frozen cubes , but does not refil with water , check the fill tube inside the freezer , from the wall to the fill cup on the ice maker , to see if it is frozen . If so , replace the dual water inlet valve , due to seeping . This is not closing completely , and letting drips thru , which freeze inside the tube . If the tube is not frozen , then the water inlet valve is bad , not letting water thru to the ice maker .
If the ice maker does not dump the frozen cubes , then the ice maker needs to be replaced . Also check the coils under the refrig , to be sure they are clean of dust , lint , etc , as this will raise the temp above 5 degrees , which is the operating temp , for an icemaker .

My ice maker is not making ice. Where do I start the trouble shoot?


The likely culprit will be a damaged inlet assembly

The water inlet valve is located behind your refrigerator. Find the water supply line coming into the valve and turn it off at the source (typically under the sink). Disconnect the supply line. Remove the screws that secure the inlet valve in place.

The water inlet valve is connected by two wires. Label the wire placement on the water inlet valve before disconnecting the wires. The wires are connected to the terminals with slip on connectors

Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If the connectors are corroded they should be replaced.

Inspect the filter screen where the supply line connects. Remove any debris or deposits that may have built up using a toothbrush
or warm running water. If you cannot clear the clog, it will be necessary to replace the valve (the filter is not removable on most inlet valves).


Test the water inlet valve for continuity using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X100 (if available, otherwise use the nearest ohm setting). Place a probe on each terminal. The multimeter should display a reading of 200 to 500 ohms. Close inspection of the inlet valve and especially the coil may reveal the exact ohm resistance rating to test for. If the water inlet valve does not pass this test, it should be replaced.

ICE MAKER NOT WORKING PROPERLY. ICE WILL FREEZE


See if the fill tube is partially blocked with ice. It's the tube where the water comes into the ice maker.
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.

A strainer before the inlet valve can also get stopped up restricting flow.
