Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. If you just changed the filter you have to remember that new filter did not come pre-filled with water. It will take up to a day for it to fill with water. There is a possibility that the new filter if it is a latch type / turn and lock filter that it is not locked into place. There is also the possibility that the wrong filter was installed. Example a kick panel filter PN ends in 10 while there are other turn and lock filters used on other models that ends in 08. They are not interchangeable.

If you have a behind the unit "in line" filter... same story it can take the better part of a day to fill the filter. A normal ice maker water demand is 120 to 140 cc per cycle. (7.5 seconds of fill time with a tiny supply line)

If you need more help with filter verification we will need your make and model number along with the part number of the NEW filter you installed.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

    Good day!!!!

    The water filter may be plugged with sediment, or you may have low water pressure. The water pressure for icemakers needs to be at least 40 psi, and up to about 120 psi for proper operation. Water filters need to be changed every six months. If you would like to test your water pressure, we have an Icemaker Water Flow Tester available from our website. This will help you to determine if the water pressure at the supply line is high enough for the icemaker to function properly. To determine if your filter is plugged, look for water both before and after the filter. It may be hard to determine if there is water flowing through the filter. Sometimes it is necessary to pull the filter out of the feed line to see if water is flowing from the exit of the filter into the refrigerator or freezer. You can do this over a bucket to catch any dripping water. Some models have a filter bypass plug to help determine if the filter is clogged. If so, you would remove the filter and replace it with the filter bypass plug. Now test your water flow.
    If your refrigerator has a water dispenser, you can hold a large cup or glass under it for 20 seconds. You should have poured about 13-14 oz. of water in that 20 seconds. If the amount is less, try removing the filter and bypassing it. If you now get the 13-14 oz. of water, the filter was clogged and it's time to replace it. If not, you have low water pressure in the line, and your icemaker may not work properly.
    On occasion, the water inlet tube will freeze where it enters the icemaker. This can happen because the water is dripping slowly, or the freezer is just set too cold. A hair blow dryer can be used to thaw this, but be careful around the plastic tubing. You don't want it to crack or deform. You may want to turn the thermostat up a little bit if this is a regular occurrence. If you have a constant, regular drip, you may want to invest in a new water fill valve.
    Another reason that your icemaker may not be making ice is the bail arm along the side of the icemaker. This arm must be in the lowered position for the icemaker to operate. If the arm is stuck up, it has shut the unit off. This is a safety feature of the unit. Normally, if there's too much ice in the bin, the arm will get stuck in the raised position and keep any more water from entering the icemaker. You must lower the arm to begin making more ice.

    I hope this solution will be helpful...

    Replaced water filter on my Frigedaire refrigerator and it is leaking where the filter is it is making ice when the bar is raised for no more ice it does not lead but when the bar is down to make ice is...


    The problem there is going to be one of 2 related causes.

    The tube in the back of the icemaker where the water enters it is partially frozen and when the water comes into the icemaker some of it is spraying into the bin instead of filling into the icemaker.Remove the icemaker and check and thaw that tube.

    That tube is out of place so once again instead of water filling into icemaker correctly some of it is running into ice bucket instead of icemaker.

    The icemaker is probably NOT run through the water filter. Typically the filter is only for the water through the door. Either the water solenoid valve that supplies water to the icemaker is bad or the icemaker is bad.

    Assuming everything is hooked up, and the water valve is in the on position, you might just try replacing the water filter. It filters the water that is used for the ice as well as the drinking water. If the filter is clogged you will get no ice and the flow of drinking water will be greatly reduced.

    There is water to icemaker but it does not make ice.

    Check if the icemaker inlet valve is opening and if the icemaker solenoid is working.

    If the icemaker has a filter also replace the filter.
