before u call a repair man i would unplug the fridge for 12 hours about depending on weather to let ur line unfreeze if thats the problem the dispenser in the door and the one to the icemaker are two different lines so just because the door works with water dispensing doesnt mean the freezer line isnt froze over

If you pop the front cover off the ice maker you will find a screw with a plus and minus on it. Adjust it and that will cut the water fill down and should solve the overfill problem.If the ice is not dumping spray the tray with Pam and that should solve the dump problem.

Mark, your water valve has screwed the pooch. Replace it. The part number is 2199838.

What's happening is this... the valve that fills your ice maker is by-passing a small amount of water. This water has to flow through that tube, right? When very small amounts (drop by drop) go through the IM fill tube, they flash freeze. Eventually they (the frozen drops of water) form a big block of ice inside the fill tube. This ice creates a blockage which creates back-pressure whenever the IM "calls" for water. The back pressure eventually blows the tube off of the connection behind the fridge.

You say that this happened over night... no way. If you look closely at the ice cubes that you IM has been making, you'll see that they are hollow. Hollow cubes means that your IM isn't getting enough water... (because the fill tube is blocked).

SOURCE: ice dispenser in door clogged up or frozen

I would contact Hotpoint direct for this one. It sounds like a design fault to me.

What I think may be going on is that the cubes are melting too much, then refreezing lower down.

Set your freezer to -18, and the fridge to +2 and see if that changes things any.

Check seals in that area. Where is the moisture coming from to generate the frosting? - Is the location high in humidity?

I moved my GE TFX277PFSB (new in 1994) side by side to my enclosed sun porch 2 years ago when i got a new fridge for the kitchen. Today, I decided to run a water line to it to allow it to make ice again. ...


Hello,
Make sure the arm on the icemaker is in the down position,if it is up and locked in place the icemaker is off. If it is down and the icemaker is turned on,each time it got cold enough the to cycle the icemaker(usually about a hour) the icemaker started and for 7 years power was sent to the water inlet valve to fill the icemaker and the icemaker side of the water valve is burnt up. The water valve has 1 inlet teh house water supply attaches to and 2 outlets 1 for icemaker and 1 for door dispenser

The water dispenser the ice dispenser etc one the left door is not be working that whole unit seems to be dead.


Highly unlikely both valves failed at same time. Not sureon your fridge but on some, if freezer door switch is not working, dispenserwon't work. Does the freezer light go off & on when door is opened &closed? If you have a voltmeter, check that water valve is getting 120 voltswhen dispenser is pushed in. If no voltage, I would suspect the micro-switchthat you hear clicking when you push in with a glass. Even though it clicks,the contacts could still be bad in it. If the icemaker is not gettingwater, check for the following problems:
  • Be sure that the icemaker is turned on and plugged in. The power cord for your icemaker is plugged into the left or back wall of the freezer.
  • Check to make sure that the water supply line valve is turned on. This valve is usually found under the sink or in the basement. This is the only water supply line needed for the refrigerator.
  • Be sure that the freezer has cooled down properly after the initial installation. This may take several hours.
  • Make sure the plastic fill line on the icemaker has not come out of the back of the icemaker.
  • Check the fill tube (plastic tube above the icemaker) going into the icemaker. In order to do this, the icemaker must be removed. If the tube is frozen solid, you will most likely need a new water valve.
If the ice-maker is getting water, but there is no water tothe dispenser, check for the following:
  • If the doors were removed during installation, be sure that the door wiring harness is plugged in. Refer to your Owner's Manual/Installation Instructions for the specific location of the wiring harness.
  • Check the water lines and make sure they are not kinked or restricted.
  • There is a tank behind the vegetable drawers or on the left side of the Fresh Food compartment that could be frozen. You may be getting water in the ice-maker, but not the dispenser. To rid the tank of the ice, check the set temperature on your controls. If it is set colder than the recommended setting, adjust to a warmer setting.
Hope this will help you. Good Luck.

Maytag sidebyside MSD2758DRW ice maker won't make ice


Hi,

If the ice maker no longer make ice, check the following.

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.

Thanks

Icemaker keeps freezing up after a couple of weeks of using then it becomes clogged with frozen ice int mechanical part of the icemaker


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.

Icemaker makes shells. Outside is frozen but


Hollow cubes are caused by not having enough water in the ice mold. Fill it up manually by pouring water in it and see how the cubes turn out.
look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water. + is more water.


Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. 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.

There is a screen filter before the water inlet valve in the water line. It can get partially stopped up with sediment blocking water flow.

I have a Whirlpool refrige. side by side and the ice maker has stopped working. The infrared light keeps blinking. I have unplugged it a couple of times as well as turned the infrared off. Any advice?


The laser , is supposed to blink . This laser , tells the icemaker to stop making ice , when the bin is full . Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the icemaker . If it doesn't dump the cubes into the bin , the icemaker is bad . Or , if there is ice in the bin , which hasn't dumped , the icemaker is bad . If the icemaker dumps the ice ( from water pour ) , then look above the fill cup , and see if the black fill tube is frozen . If so , then replace the water valve and turn the freezer temp down slightly . It will take several days for this fill line inside freezer to thaw . If icemaker dumps , and black tube NOT frozen , replace the water valve . The valve , is where the wall water line connects to on the refrig

Ask maker is not working - water is getting to water dispenser but not to ice maker. i am not sure what the infared does in the freezer


Pour about 1/2 cup of water into the icemaker and so if it dumps after freezing . If so , then watervalve or frozen water line in top of freezer is the problem .Squeeze the black fill tube to see if frozen . If ice stays in the ice maker , then the icemaker is the problem . The infra red is an electric eye which cuts the icemaker off when the bin is full .

Water line to water dispenser is freezing up inside the freezer


Try using an hairdryer or defrosting the unit completely , this often get rid of blockage caused by frozen lines fixing the problem.

The water lines can also be unblocked from dirt using a thin flexible shaft. This after defrosting.

If all that does not fix the problem, then you may need to replace the water valve, the icemaker solenoid, or the whole icemaker assembly.
