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!

Ice maker is not making ice, but water from door dispenser flows normally. Ice in the tray (where it is made), but it won't dump into the holding tray. any solutions?


Greetings,

The first thing to check is the tube that puts water into the icemaker...this sometimes freezes up from a leaking water fill valve..if so, this blocks the water from filling the i/m....if its not frozen up and is clear(open) then your fill valve is bad or your icemaker module(if equipted) with that style...

Ice maker will not fill with water


Water might be frozen in the tube that fills the ice tray. Check the tube and if it's frozen shut, use a hair dryer to heat it until the ice piece melts out. Your icemaker should work after the fridge has been closed for 24 hours to cool back down.

Ice maker not producing ice. Tried everything in the Troubleshooting section of Users Manual. Replaced water filter. The front water dispenser is working.


the most likely thing would be a bad water valve.try to reset the ice maker and watch to see if the tray fills up the fill tube could also be blocked with frozen water.the last thing is simply a bad ice maker.

My ice maker has quit working. The water is not filling the tray.


Pour 1/2 cup of water into icemaker . If it dumps the cubes when frozen , then check the fill tube going into the icemaker , to see if it is frozen solid . If it is , remove and clean and replace water valve ( drip seeping ) . If not frozen , replace the wqter valve anyway . If the icemaker doesn't dump the cubes , and holds the frozen ice , replace the icemaker , after making sure the coils under fridge are free of dust , lint , pet hair etc.The icemaker needs to be 5 degrees to operate , and , dirty coils could bring the temp up to 6 or higher in the freezer section .

My icemaker is not working. Water not filling tray


Probably the valve that feeds water to the ice maker leaks and this water freezes up at the filling tube to the ice maker and the water doesn't go through, but if the filling tube is not frozen and the ice maker doesn't call for water the problem is in the ice maker inside board ,if so you should replace the ice maker.

Kitchenaid Icemaker does nothing. Ref. Mod.kscs25Inssoo


This also happened after I changed the water filter. The small black rubber tube that fills the tray was plugged with ice. Instead of hot wash cloths I used a hair drier for a couple of minutes.

KSRA25IL ice cube tray won't fill


The fill tube is probably frozen. Its in the roof of the freezer. turn off the freezer and heat the roof of the freezer with a hair dryer, being careful not to get it too hot,and it should thaw and work again. If you can put the food elsewhere for a day, just turning it off with the door open should work also.

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.

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!

Water not filling up the icemaker


it sounds as tho you do have solenoid prob.but it could also be an ice over sit at your water inlet tube that is situated near icemaker.
