I had a similar problem with my old hotpoint frig (top freezer, bottom frig). the defrost cycle would come on and melt the ice, but since the drain plug in the back of the freezer below the coils would eventually freeze up closed due to ice accumulation. It got to the point I had to shut down the whole unit and leave it open for around 8 hours to let it naturally melt the ice in the drain tube. I hear a gurgle sound and then a sound of water flowing, so I knew it was now draining again.

Ice maker not working


Try filling with tap water and allow water to freeze. Once the water freezes and ice dumps into ice bin and water does not refill this will point to the dual water control valve. On the Model FRS6R5ESB0 that part is a Triple Water Control Click Here=> 241734301 Water Inlet Valve I will be here should you have questions but for now please try the tap water fill test and let me know how that turns out, Thanks, Sea Breeze

I have a Whirlpool refrigerator with an ice maker and when the icemaker is filling with water it leaks from the front of the tray into the ice storage bin.


1. icemaker is not level. (check and re-level)
2. icemaker has a crack in the mold.(replace i/m)
3. Water level set too high.(remove front cover and adjust water level screw counterclockwise)

I set the ice maker feature to make cubes with my samsung refrigerator rs2555sw. But the ice maker makes a ice chunk. All the cubes are frozen together with a flat and thick layer of ice on top..


Hi and welcome to Fixya.

Remove the front cover after the ice tray has dumped cubes and remove all of the water from your ice maker tray.

Then depress the test button on the bottom of the icemaker (in front on bottom) located about 1 inch from the lower rh corner.

The icemaker fill cycle should add just enough water to cover barely cover the tray. (see page 32 of the 25 Sept 2005 user's manual)

If it is overfilling the icemaker fill time / water level needs to be reduced on the ice maker module. A normal fill cycle is about 7.5 seconds.

Another thing that will cause larger cubes is high water supply (utility co) pressure.

A temporary fix would be to slowly close the refridgerator water supply line's shut off vavle so that the water flow restricts.

The real solution is to investigate ice maker fill time, and the function of the icemaker water supply solenoid vavle for possible Delayed closing of the internal diaphram.

Ice maker no longer making ice. A few weeks ago the water that was supposed to fill just the ice tray, didn't turn off, overflowed the ice tray and proceeded to fill the ice basket underneath. Since then...


Sounds like the water flowed enough to freeze the end of the fill tube shut. Best to prepare to replace the dual water control valve on the rear and near floor of refrigerator. If it was leaking and you should thaw the tube you need to turn the main supply of water off until replaced. Then thaw tube and replace the dual control valve. I will return with a part number providing your model number is correct, Thanks, Sea Breeze

I have a side/side model KSRD25FW15. Can get water thru door but won't fill ice trays. Why won't ice trays fill?


That is most likely the water control valve on the rear of refrigerator and near the floor. If the ice maker is empty fill with tap water and let it freeze. If it dumps and does not refill the water control valve for the ice maker is defective. I will get back soon with the parts number. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Refridge leaking water inside it...


Should be a little drain hole in the bottom rear of the fridge. Use a pipe cleaner or somthing similar cos it,s probably blocked. Quite a common problem.

Ice Maker Overflowing


i would recommend changing the water valves as they may be sticking or leaking now you can take the icemaker loose get a small baby bottle short the terminals to cycle water fill catch it with the bottle and see how much water it dumps should be about 4 ounces if the valve leaks will over fill the ice maker over a period of time say the valve is leaking a few drops at a time and the bail arm has the icemaker shut off because its touching ice in the bin but the water just keeps dripping down the fill tube till it runs over did you replace the whole icemaker or just the motor module
