Water wont flow into LG LX259602b ice maker

Water wont flow into the icemaker freezer tray. We thawed the small pieces of ice left with the hair dryer method, removed the ice maker and blew canned compressed air down the filler tube, still the water wont flow. the wate dispenser on the door works just fine, so we know water is getting into the fridge ok.....any thoughts thanks in advance.

You may have a bad water valve.  The valve has 2 sections, one for the water dispenser and the other for the ice maker.  Check those connections in the back of the refrigerator.  If everything is ok, replace the water valve.

No water to icemaker, but through the door water is working. Ice maker itself is ok.


This is most likely cause because some part of the ice maker/distribution mechanism is broken. If at all possible, remove everything from the fridge and freezer and allow the freezer to thaw. If that is not possible, you could try and remove just the ice maker to thaw it or try and thaw it while it is still in the freezer. I hope this helps and have a nice day!

Icemaker not making ice


Your inlet tube that goes to the icemaker may be frozen. To Check: Shut off water supply to Fridge, disconnect the water line that goes to the icemaker at top back. Use a flexible item to insert in the water line connection. I used a zip tie. If the flexible item won't all the through to the ice maker, the line is frozen. Thaw out the tube from inside the freezer with a hair dryer. Re-connect everything, you now have ice . . . Solution #2: You may have to replace your "Water Inlet Valve" located at bottom right rear of Fridge. Easy to do, just follow the color codes, be sure and shut off the water.

I am not getting water to my icemaker.I have water to the back of the fridge.


It is not uncommon for the water line/ tube that feeds the ice maker to become blocked with ice. In order to check this remove a few screws holding the ice maker in place and unplug connector. Now you will be able to inspect this small plastic hose. use something small and flexible to probe and feel for blockage for only the short length of the hose in the freezer. If you discover ice, thaw out the line with a hair dryer. Don't get water on the dryer or melt plastics in freezer.

Hello: I hope that you can help. The ice maker on this model (et21dk) is spitting out water as well as cubes. As a result, my tray is a frozen lake of cubes. How do I fix this? Thanks. Ben My...


Ben open your freezer section and reach to the very back and top of your ice maker where the water inlet tube is located. Use your finger and check for ice formation near the end of the water inlet tube where the ice maker plastic water channel is.

If there is ice in that area unplug your unit and use a hair dryer to thaw out that area. Try not to keep the hot air blowing in the same place when your using the hair dryer so as not to melt any plastics. This some times just happens all by it self that there is ice formation in the water inlet area. While the unit is unplugged use the hair dryer to free your ice tray also.

Once you restart the unit it can take longer than usual before you have ice cubes again. Not more than 1 day. If you continue to have ice formation in your freezer section then your ice maker has and internal failure of either the water control micro switch or actuation lever. The ice maker can be repaired but the cost will be about 60 percent of the cost of a new icemaker..

Ice making feature not working


Most likely the ice fill tube has frozen up and will not allow the water to fill the ice maker. You will need to remove the icemaker (three small screws) and take a hair dryer and thaw out the fill tube. You can use a bent up coat hanger to reach in and remove some of the ice that is formed up in the tube as you thaw out the ice. Also check the Icemaker's actuator arm. This sometimes is hung up by a small piece of ice that hasn't dropped causing the Icemaker to shut off. (This is the first thing to check )
