Ice maker overfills the ice tray, ejecting large block of ice instead of individual cubes.


What is your model number? Sounds like you may need a new icemaker. Sometimes when the icemaker motor goes bad it causes the icemaker to keep filling even though it hasn't kicked out the ice in there. Also, are you sure there isn't 2 valves on the refrigerator?

How do i fix ice maker


Could be 2 different problems. Inlet water valve is a dual valve (2 halves). 1 half feeds water to the door dispenser, the other half fills the icemaker. The icemaker half could be bad or blocked up with sediment causing a no fill situation. 2nd problem could be the icemaker itself which sends power to the inlet valve when it needs filled. Usually the inlet valve fails first but you need to test and see.

Icemaker not making ice cubes.


Amana SXD22S2W refrigerators are made by Whirlpool and what you have happening is common with a couple possibilities. Most likely the W10245167 Water Inlet Valve is not shutting off after the fill time of about 7.5 seconds. If this is happening the water will slowly fill the ice maker tray above the lever that it should and causes the ice to connect together on the top thus not allowing the cubes to be harvested because they are basically welded together as a whole piece. And the other possibility is the ice maker itself is needing an adjustment of the water flow time. Below I will post a Icemaker Repair video telling how to adjust the time and other things to look for. This is possible but most times not always the case. Adjusting the flow time is delicate and a little change can cause too much or not enough water. Lets watch the icemaker a little closer and see if there is ice freezing up in the fill tube behind the ice maker. You have seen the leaky faucets before and an old W10245167 Water Inlet Valve can do just that making a mess inside your freezer and ice maker if leaking. Here is a Whirlpool Ice Maker Troubleshooting PDF You can find this info on this page HERE You will need Adobe Acrobat Reader to view these documents.

The icemaker fills up and shuts off, but the pile of ice is higher than the rear of the ice container, and ice keeps spilling over into the bottom of the freezer compartment when you pull the upper basket...


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

This is a symptom of the inlet water valve leaking by when it is supposed to be closed / off. Over time the diaphragm in the inlet water valve fails and the result is that ice will build up on the back area of the icemaker / it will start making the ice tray sheet with ice in the back and on the bottom.

Here is test you can do yourself to check for a dripping / leaking inlet water valve. On the back of the refrigerator there is a 1/4" plastic tube that connects to the round head ice maker fill tube.
1. Turn OFF the ice-maker
2. Remove the 1/4" plastic line from the ice maker fill tube and place it in a bucket or large pot. Leave it sit for 8 to 10 hours.
If there is any water in the bucket / catch pot after 8 to 10 hours ... the inlet water valve has failed and will have to be replaced. (not a hard task btw)
I had to replace my own refrigerator water inlet valve this year for the same reason.
If you need help locating parts just respond with a model number and I will gladly help you.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Hss25gfta refridgerator ice maker seems to be stuck on off .It all of the sudden quit making ice and we can't find the solution.It makes water fine


Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly.

The ice maker suddenly no longer making ice can be caused by many things.

1. The freezer section is above 16 F.
a. Usually the cause is ice buildup on the evaporator coils as a result of an automatic defrosting problem.
b. The evaporator fan is not turning at full speed

2. The ice makers thermostat has failed. When the tray reaches 16F temp is closes the circuit and starts the ice maker harvest cycle.

3. The ice maker drive motor has failed.

4. The ice maker heating element has failed.

5. The inlet water valve is allowing water to drip into the ice tray during the freeze period of ice making.
a. You would note that the water fill area of the icemaker would have ice build up. Also in the very back of the ice make tray ice would build up and prevent the sweep fingers from rotating.
b. Usually when the above happens the rubber water inlet tub that goes from the back of the unit to the ice maker is frozen solid internally.
c. You can test this by removing the plastic hose from the rear top area of the unit and placing the upper end of the tub in a bucket for several hours. (ICE MAKER OFF) If you note water in the bucket the water valve is leaking water past the diaphram when the solenoid is supposed to be closed and must be replaced
6. The inlet water valve solenoid coil has failed.

Most appliance parts sources do not sell piece parts for this ice maker. They only sell the complete assembly. Here is one source of many on line sources for just the icemaker.

Should the water valve be leaking water by it is item 800 of this link that is also one source of many online sources: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5203104&diagram_id=24933031#d24933031

Ice maker will not make ice. no ice is being made. no water appears to be in ice cube making area. can hear a ticking noise from icemaker area


Carefully pour water from small glass into ice maker, until the cavity is near filled. Wait a few hours. If it dumps ice, you can usually rule out the ice maker.
If ice maker dumps, then it will be either a bad water valve, Ice building up in fill pipe going into the icemaker, or blocked water line that runs from your water source to the machine.
Caution. If the fill tube going into the ice maker is filled with ice do NOT
use heat such as a hair dryer to melt it. It will melt things you do not want to melt. If it is this problem, you must also replace the water valve because it is leaking slowly causing your problem.
Lastly, in rare cases, the microswitch in the ice maker fails and does not allow water to enter the icemaker.

Icemaker won't fill tray,


Was the inlet tube frozen. If so your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is probably leaking and when the water reaches the freezer it freezes, blocking the inlet tube. Replace the water inlet valve.
You can 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.

Water Leaks from Ice Maker of Sub-Zero 642


Sounds like the water inlet valve to icemaker is leaking - not closing completely after filling the tray. Rare, but possible. Prove it by shutting off icemaker arm or switch. If that is the cause, the drip will continue.
If dripping stops when I/M is off, then it is ice blockage in I/M fill tube and or diverter funnel at end of ice tray. Remove I/M, clean ice from both, and re-assemble.
Replacing that valve (water supply to refrig connects to it in the back) should solve it.

Whirlpool Refrigerator Model ED25PW Ice maker tray not filling with water


Just had this issue - after checking all line connections, I pulled the ice maker feed water line from the back of the unit and found the tube was blocked with ice. Melted the ice with some hot water, and all is good once more. I would check for this before getting into the solinoid.

Ice accumulating in freezer


There should be a tube that brings water to your icemaker from the back of the fridge into the icemaker. This tube is frozen with water, or the inlet where this tube feed the icemaker tray is frozen. The result is that water cannot go to the ice maker, and instead, goes over the top of the inlet area.

Verify that this is indeed what is going on.

The fix is to remove the blockage/buildup of ice at the inlet. You may have to detach the icemaker to get to it. Be carefull with electricity! Also be carefull as plastic can break under stress!
The tube may be frozen to the inlet, channel locks can be used to gently twist the tube to break it free.
Good Luck!
