Question about LG LFX25960ST Stainless Steel French Door Refrigerator

2 Answers

I have a French door LG with Icemaker in the Door - It stopped making ice, but the water dispensor works fine - Just put in a new filter and no error codes on door - the bar moves to the up position, but does not drop back down to open the water valve to fill the tray

    The ice cycled out into the bin and the rod is still in the up position - Where do I find the Valve to switch the hoses to verify if Valve is bad

If the ice maker isn't making any ice, first make sure the wire on/off switch inside the freezer is in the "on" position. It must be locked into position in order to work. Even a small shift can turn off the ice maker.

If the ice maker is turned on and still isn't producing ice cubes, take a look at the tube that transports the water from the water line to the ice maker. If the tube is iced over, ice could be blocking it. Soak a towel in hot water and wrap it around the tube until it defrosts. Listen for the flow of water.

If the water is running through the tube and no ice is being produced, the tube may have a leak. Look for icicles or thick patches of ice on the tube; those can signal the location of a leak.

Freezer temperature also plays a role in the ice maker's functionality. The freezer must be set at 8 degrees F or below for the ice maker to cycle properly. Check the thermostat, usually located in the refrigerator.

Keep in mind that the water supply valve usually has something to do with it. If the handle on the valve isn't turned to the correct position, the water pressure will be too low or too high and the cubes will not be the correct size. If the valve handle is in the correct position, the water supply valve could be clogged. The valve contains a filter that the water feeds through before proceeding to the ice maker, and if too much gunk builds up on the filter it can hinder the water flow. The valve could also contain a bad coil, an problem that would need to be tested for and repaired by a professional.

I could identified the problem as the water pump. The water dispenser is producing water, but water is not being supplied to the ice-maker, then, if your Model LFX25960ST is correct, there is a Dual Valve assembly and the replace part number is 5220JB2008A.

Call or looking for any LG parts shop center. Hope helps.

Hi, is there any water in the ice tray? If not, pour some in by hand. Wait for it to freeze and see if the ice gets dumped out as it should. If you get that far, but it doesn't refill, then one of two things is likely:

A: if you just set this up, it hasn't cycled enough times for water to make it to the ice maker yet.

B: The ice maker water line is damaged or the water inlet valve is not working. (There are two valves in one unit, one for ice, one for water and one can fail even while the other works - you can swap the output hoses to test this and then press the water button.

If it never cycled the ice out, then then problem is proably in the control mechanism.

It stopped making ice but cold water option works fine. No clogs visible. Changed cold setting to 7 from 5. Nothing worked. just took out water filter, but can't see how that was the problem.


Put the filter back in . Pour about 1/2 cup of water into icemaker . If it dumps , then replace the water inlet valve . If it doesn't dump and the ice stays in the icemaker , replace the icemaker . Also , make sure the coils are clean of dust etc... Reset the controls back to normal or you could create water freezing in door (dispensor) .

Icemaker does not work


Does your unit have the cube size selection button inside of the ice maker door , if so is it lit up, if so is it on a cube selection. If not that is the reason the ice maker is not working because even though the unit is on the cube selection has not been made. This should solve your problem.
