Water is shooting straight into the ice container, and not into the ice trays. I had to turn it off b/c the ice tub was full of water.


Well I hope it is just a hose cause if it isnt it is your coils in your Icemaker . The water runs over the coils until it backs up to a switch (could be bad as well) shutting off the water so the cycle can begin to ice the water. So the most likely is the hose ,then the switch then the solenoid that shuts the water off. You can tesst the solenoid by exercising the shutoff arm on the ice maker to see if it does just that shut off. Let me know

We have water leaking from the back of the frige, coming from under the area where the copper tubing connects from the wall to the actual refrigerator. I can't identify exactly what's leaking. I doesn't...


This can be an auto defrost condition. If your fridge is auto defrost, what happens during the defrost mode, ice build up is heated (in the area immediately near the evaporator coils, not in the main area) . This ice becomes water and drains out via a small tube, typically at the back or bottom of the machine. This water normally goes into a pan under the fridge, and evaporates without the user being aware of it.

If anything causes excessive ice build up (opening the door too much, door seal leak, etc.) then you get too much water and the pan overfills and spills out.

I suggest that you remove the pan from under your fridge, clean it, and put it back, and test to see if yo actually have anything wrong, or not.

This leak would NOT be refrigerant, as you would cease cooling if so. it is all condensation, which is physics and normal...

Have Kenmore sid-by-side refrigerator: 7909621940B - Just changed water filter. Now, no water or ice dispenses. Ice maker is making ice - filled the bin over a few days. But, when I push to dispense...


We also have a kenmore side by side refrig and had the same problem,,,
FIRST, CHECK THE CONNECTION BETWEEN NEW FILTER AND ATTACHMENT POINT,,
IF THE RUBBER GASKET CAME LOSE DURING THE CHANGE, IT MAY BLOCK THE PATHWAY FOR WATER TO FLOW
NEXT, CHECK THE WATER/ICECUBES/CRUSH LEVER SWITCH TO MAKE SURE IT IS NOT PART WAY BETWEEN ONE OF THE SETTINGS,
NEXT,CHECK TO SEE IF YOUR UNIT HAS A RESET BUTTON,
THE RESET BUTTON IS USUALLY IMMEDIATELY INSIDE THE OPENING WHERE THE WATER/ICE DISPENSES AND UP, YOU WOULD NEED TO PLACE YOUR FINGER RIGHT DIRECTLY UP BEHIND THE FRONT PLASTIC COVER, AND IT'S GOING TO BE A VERY SMALL BUTTON, I AM NOT SURE WHICH SIDE ON YOUR UNIT R OR L, BUT DIRECTLY UP IN THE CORNER,,
I HOPE ONE OF THESE HELPS !! angi

Hi hope you can help, I have a 2 door fridge with a bottom draw freezer purchased new 2008 and I have lost the instructions.The prolem I need diagnosed is water leaking from the freezer draw. thanks.


Sounds to me like you have a leak, probably from an ice maker tubing connection or vinyl water supply tube itself. Have someone get a good flashlight and get a good closeup look at where the water is coming from. The water supply to the fridge's icemaker comes from the house wall, floor, or cabinet area of sink. Often they are connected to fridge, then someone moves the fridge to clean and the line gets run-over or tugged on too hard causing a leak. If that is cause, install a new line (hardware stores have these specific to ice makers, 1/4" vinyl or copper tubing) and it should be coiled several times in mid air near the wall, so if fridge is moved out it just uncoils not incurrs damage from un-noticed tension (full amount of water pressure in that little line).

2nd possibility for newer type fridge. All frost free fridges have a pan underneath that catches condensation from coils, from the pan the water evaporates into the air where balance is achieved and pan is never full. On rare occasions, like during moving, on some the pan isn't fastened down and can fall out of place, then condensation water from the coils falls to floor (not any great amount but some).

Ice maker will not make ice


hELLO THERE:
There's no ice If your ice maker has stopped producing ice completely, check these, in this order: It may be turned off. Look for the wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If the wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. If so, try one of these: If your ice maker has a small red plastic lever, lower it to lower the wire. If there's no plastic lever, simply lower the wire. In either case, the ice maker should begin producing ice again. Also make sure that the temperature is 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly. The ice maker fill tube may be blocked with ice. If so, melt the blockage using a hair dryer-but be careful to not melt any plastic parts! Also replace the water shut-off valve or water-inlet valve, or both, if necessary. The ice maker head assembly may have broken parts. Look to see if the gears are broken. Check to see if the small plastic arms that rest against the ice rake are broken. If the ice maker head assembly is modular and you've found broken parts, you can just replace it.

I have a kitchenaid kuic18nnts ice maker. The power went off and it stopped working. I checked the plug and when I re-inserted the plug I found it will run only when the door is open. Once I close the door...


Hello,

What this simply mean is that there has been a lose of wire from wiring connection which have brig up with the door of the oven what you are to do to solve this problem first of all trace the wire connection from the main power supply down to the control panel i.e the control unit .

2).Remove your microwave door will allows you to quickly clean out any accumulated food or grease. This also makes it easy to get to all the crumbs and debris around the door hinges. While you have the door off its hinges, examine the plastic panel and glass window for signs of damage. Make sure you install a replacement door that is designed for your brand of microwave to ensure that it will fit correctly.

jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Instructions and material needed bellow

(Phillips screwdriver (if necessary), Flathead screwdriver or putty knife)
  1. Remove the power cord from the electrical outlet and move your microwave onto a workbench or sturdy table. For cabinet-mounted microwaves, pry off the decorative grills or front panels and remove the mounting screws. You should then be able to slide the microwave out of its mounting bracket.
  2. Open the microwave door and remove the glass tray. Use a flathead screwdriver or putty knife to pry off the plastic cover on the inside of the door. Work around the edge of the glass until the cover slips free.
  3. Remove the door by pulling the mounting pins out of the hinges at the top and bottom. You may need an assistant to steady the door so you can have both hands free to work with the pins.

Not making ice. water is getting to the water dispenser but don't know why it is not getting to the ice maker itself. how do i check it/repair it.


Hia and wl;ecome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
We really need a make and model number to provide you with specific unit applicable information but.... in general, here goes:
1. Ice makers must have a freezer temp below 16 Deg F. If there is an airflow problem in the freezer caused by a fan or ice build up the ice maker will no longer make ice.
2. The ice maker has a thermostat that controls the harvest and fill cycle. If the thermostat fails it will stop making ice.
3. There is a water valve in the back of the unit that has TWO electric solenoids on it. One for water in door and one for ice. If a solenoid fails it will stop providing water to the applicable function. I.e water in door or ice. You can briefly remove the fiberboard back cover to gain access to the water valve. Then switch the installed terminal connection between solenoids. Left to right or front to back depending on how it is mounted. Then try the water in door. If water flows to the ice maker when water in door switch is actuated then the solenoid for making ice is good and the probem is with the icemaker. (Reconect wires in original positions.)

Note that anytime you remove power from the unit you must wait 10 - 15 mintues before re-applying power so the coolant system can stabilze. Other wise the compressor will not start.

Here is a web link that will help most people troubleshoot ice maker problems:
http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=12&newsdesk_id=34

The link above is pretty good.
There is a 48 page job aid also for whirlpool in door ice that is also a big help:
http://adcxns1.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/8527f904cc8ea8cd85256b5800672333/$FILE/4322658A.pdf

This should help you find out why it is not making ice.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

AMANA UPRIGHT FREEZER LEAKS WATER FROM THE DOOR


Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 st1\:*{behavior:url(#ieooui) } /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";} Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

Model # trt18GREW5 ice maker will not make ice, and no water flowing thru valve w/ water supply on and water tube to ice maker disconnected


Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";} Water doesn't flow unless the ice maker calls for water which it does immediately after dumping the previous load of ice.

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.

The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.
