    My water dispenser was working fine. All of the sudden, the water will not stop flowing. I had to close the water line to the fridge to stop it from flooding the floor.

    I have a Hotpoint model HSS25GPDAWW

Although I don't have this problem, I took my dispenser apart tonight for a different reason. Moving the lever with the glass actuates a mechanical switch. It's a really simple mechanism. If I were you, I would check to see if that mechanical switch is sticking. Maybe someone had a glass of soda or something sticky, which splashed up there when they got ice. That could be enough to gum it up.

Taking it apart was not tough. The plastic border pulls right off. Then the assembly that has the buttons and lights on it can be removed by pushing it downward enough so that it clears the plastic holders, and then you just pull the top edge towards you. At that point I unplugged the fridge so I couild disconnect some connectors. Then 4 screws gets the whole glass switch assembly out. You should be able to inspect the mechanical switch operation at that point to see if it is sticking.

Good luck.

Why is my Uline ice maker filling with water not ice ?


At first I wanted to say it has to fill with water to make ice but I know you mean the ice bin is filling with water. You either have an issue with the water control valve leaking or your timer isn't working properly. Listen for the water to flow and when it seems to shut off look at the tray fill spout and see if it actually stopped dripping. If it continues to drip (not flow normally) then the valve is leaking. If it isn't dripping but the water in the ice tray over flowed, then the issue is either with the timer or the adjustment is incorrect.

Water leaking from Icemaker fill tube near the back wall


It probably is not the water valve. More likely it is the ice maker itself. Nothing else in the machine controls the flow of water to the ice maker except the ice maker itself. It is recommended that both the ice maker and the water valve needs to be replaced when trouble such as this.

I have a kitchenaid 23cd.Icemaker doesn't work has 40# water pressure 5 deg in freezer water works to fill glass no water in ice tray unpluged for 24 hours


If the water dispenser is working and fill glass function is working but the ice maker section there is no water in the tray then its faulty ice maker valve.This is a twin valve.The valve is one unit,but has two sections one for water and one for ice dispenser.This valve is got faulty and not working for both sections so water is not entering the ice maker tray.
There is a water valve at the back of the ice maker.This valve controls the flow of water in the ice maker chamber.If this valve is not functioning as required then water will not enter the ice maker.This valve is at the back of ice maker connected to the water fill tube.It has to be replaced to clear this problem.

You can get required parts from sears part direct online site or from repairclinic.com site.

Water overflows from icemaker & freezes in the freezer. Makes three ice cubes in a day & the water is extremely slow to fill glass from freezer door!


If both the water in door and ice maker are experienceing slow water problems the common point is the water supply itself.

This can be caused by:
1. Water supply shut off valve is partially closed or blocked with debris.
a. TURN water supply OFF
b. Remove the water line from the rear of the refrigerator ABOVE the in line filter (if one is installed)
c. Place the removed line into a bucket.
d. Turn on water supply and check flow. It should fill an 8 Oz glass in about 8 seconds.
If it passes this test then the water supply is fine. If it FAILS this test either cflear the obstruction in the line or replace the water supply valve from the house connection.

Test 2 (Water supply is OK
Reconnect water supply to external in-line filter (If installed) or water valve assy connection.
Your unit has a Verticle filter that if it is clogged will cause slow water flow.
Test water thru the door for the same amount of water flow. It should fill an 8 Oz glass in 10 seconds or less.
If it does ot do this then the VERTICAL internal water filter is clogged. (5 months or 500 Gallon change interval)
REPLACEMENT filter is PN LT500P but there are several like / suitable aftermarket replacements for the LT500P number.

As for the ice maker freezing up. There is only one cause for this and that is the water valve assy itself is bypassing water when it is supposed to be closed. The only remedy for this is to replace the water valve. They are not repairable.
The valve is available through sears parts direct:

Ice machine will not stop filling with water...overflows


This sounds like a stuck water valve. Un-plug the fridge and see if the water stops flowing to the ice maker. If it stops, it's a control board (if equipped) or ice maker issue.

If not, turn the water off to the fridge, pull the fridge away from the wall, get behind it and trace the water line (small, plastic line) from the back of the fridge going down to the water valve. Remove the cover, and you may need to remove the water solenoid (the water valve) and see what happened.

Ice maker not workin


ok as far as the water in your door goes sounds like the micro switch is getting a little gummy and sticking this happens when people dump ice in sweet drinks and some splashes up locate the switch and spray a little wd 40 on it as to you ice it is on a separate valve as the water in the door so the water flow don't mean a lot in this case remove the front plastic cover on the icemaker and you will see a bunch of little holes make a jumper wire out #10 or 12 house wire strip about 1/4 inch off the ends an insert in the holes marked t&h this will start a test cycle make sure yuo hold the plastic insulation so you don't get bit if the ice maker starts cycleing remove the wire and watch for it to stop listen for the icemaker valve to open if the ice maker finishes and the valve didnt fill replace the water valves if the icemaker doesnt cycle and yuo may have to kinda twistm the jumper back and forth to get it to make contact depending on the gauge you used then replace the ice maker motor module if you hear the valve open and the ice maker doesnt fill check for a frozen ice fill tube that should do it
