SOURCE: Ice maker not working on Amana Side by Side refrigerator

On most Amana cabinets the water supply for the water and ice are from two solenoid valves. The water coming in goes to a double water solenoid valve splitting the incoming water so the fact there is water coming through as chilled water is not verifying that there is water supply for the ice maker. If technically minded you could locate this valve (normally at the back rhs ; compressor section) and try switching the supplies to check the solenoid valve. If you have water coming through then it may well be the icemaker module not asking for the water supply. As the simplest first step I would try defrosting the whole machine overnight and see if there is an improvement. I do know that checking the module is time expensive and would really need to be done by an engineer or alternatively replace this item. Hope this is of some help.

SOURCE: Frigidaire signaling water dispenser instead of ice maker

Sounds like the water solinoid valves are wired wrong.One activates The water dispenser.The other the ice maker.That, why every so often the water shoots out on the floor.The ice maker is telling the valve to open.

SOURCE: HOOK UP OF ICE MAKER TO THE WATER LINE

At the back bottom of the fridge there will be a coil solenoid. If your appliance is ice make ready this will be there, these coils have a bracket that has fitting for a water connection. Get a 1/4 tube with a ferrell and nut. slide them on the tube and connect to the fitting.

SOURCE: Bad water & ice cube taste

the feed line of the water source is bad replace it you will also need to clean the ice makers insides to remove the rest of the contamination
and 2 more suggestions:1) change the filter - older refers have the filter in the water line serving the ice maker - newer refers have the water filter in the refer (it looks much like an auto oil filter); 2) do not store ice for extended periods when ice use is not high e.g. during cooler months. Unless you use a full basket of ice over say a few weeks you should dump all and start over periodically.
thanks.

LG LFX21976ST refrigerator. Started the day with a full reservoir of ice, was using it heavily to keep some workers hydrated. The last time I tried to get ice, none came. Per the label inside the doo


The ice maker's water supply line may be frozen solid. Do not worry... take out your frozen groceries and dairy products, and let your friends store them for two days while your completely defrost your refrigerator. If you don't want to wait, try to locate a schematic (parts diagram) for your fridge and take a panel access cover off to get access to the copper tube of the water supply line inside. (Warning: this can be terminal to your fridge so don't attempt this without the exact parts diagram for your make and model.) Ensure you are heating the water pipe and NOT the refrigerant line; i.e., freon, ammonia, etc... Unplug your fridge and heat up the (water supply) copper pipe with a high wattage blow dryer... if you were a pro, I would recommend a heat gun. DO NOT USE A HAND TORCH as the soldered joint connections may come loose and it will leak afterwards. (The demand you placed on the ice maker caused the compressor to run almost continually for the ice maker assembly causing the copper pipe water supply pipe to freeze... it will take time to thaw it out by just unplugging it. In the future, when you know you need volumes of ice... make a little at a time each day and store it inside a separate ice cube container.) You may also want to check the activation lever above the ice cube container (bin) to make sure it moves freely against the switch contact. If the switch contact is jammed, it won't work. Good Luck

Plumbing in water supply to fridge.


if this is for ice maker this is how its done. run the line through the floor in back of fridge to a cold water pipe. closest to where fridge sits.
  • Turn off the cold water supply to the pipes.
  • Attach a pipe clamp to the cold water pipe.
  • Screw a packing nut into the cold water pipe. Turn the packing nut until it punctures and taps into the pipe. Attach ΒΌ-inch copper tubing to the outlet valve on the packing nut using a compression nut. Make certain the valve is closed before you secure the packing nut.
  • Attach the copper tubing to the intake connection using a compression nut. to back of fridge,
  • Turn on the cold water supply.
  • Turn on the outlet valve on the packing nut.

  • the kit should have directions with it. good-day !

    How to reassemble ice dispenser parts od kenmore model 106.5706*602


    Clean out the new ice maker with warm soapy water.

    Ensure that the floor surface under your refrigerator is level. If the floor surface under your refrigerator isn't level, you can place shims under the legs of the refrigerator to fix the uneven surface.

    Turn off the main water supply to your house.

    Clear the water line by running the faucets until the pipe clears.

    Screw the copper supply line's connector to the house's cold water connector valve. Use an adjustable wrench to tighten the connection.

    Slide the compression sleeve and nut onto the other end of the copper supply line. The compression sleeve and nut will wrap around the outside of the copper supply line.

    Bend the copper supply line to fit into the water line inlet casing located on the back of the refrigerator. Leave slack in the line so that the refrigerator can be pulled away from the wall or cabinets. The water line inlet casing is a plastic bracket used to hold the copper supply line in place so that there is no pull on the tubing's connection. It is the larger of the two plastic brackets located on the back of the refrigerator.

    Insert the compression sleeve located around the end of the copper supply line into the ice maker connector. The ice maker connector is already installed on the back of the Maytag refrigerator.

    Tighten the nut over the connection between the compression sleeve on the copper supply line and the ice maker connector with an adjustable wrench.

    Attach the water supply tube clamp to the water supply line by clipping it into place. The water supply tube clamp is a plastic bracket located on the back of the refrigerator that holds the supply tube so that it doesn't rattle and become disconnected. It is the smaller of the two brackets located on the back of the refrigerator.

    Turn on the main water supply.

    Check all connections for leaks.

    Position the drain hose located on the back of the ice maker over your floor drain. Use a PVC pipe if you need to redirect the drain hose flow so that it falls over the floor drain. The PVC pipe should not touch the drain hose and should have no low point where the water can settle.

    Plug the ice maker into a 3-prong grounded outlet.

    How do I replace the water line in the door?


    Hello,

    Find your route to the water line. Drill a hole in the floor behind the refrigerator and thread the copper tubing into the basement. Go to the basement and find the main water line and pull the copper tubing to it.

    Step 2
    Attach pipe to refrigerator. Go back up to the kitchen and attach the end of the copper tubing to the water pipe of the refrigerator. You can use a nut and ferrule to connect the tube to the fridge. Make sure to leave a little bit of copper tubing coiled behind the fridge so as to not disconnect the tubing when moving the fridge.

    Step 3
    Turn off the water. With the fridge all hooked up, go back to the basement and turn off the water. Find the cold water pipe and drill a 1/4-inch hole to accommodate the copper tubing.

    Step 4
    Attach valve to pipe. You need to attach the water valve to the main pipe. This allows you to control the flow of water to the refrigerator. Make sure you have a gasket to seal between the valve and main water pipe.

    Step 5
    Connect the copper tubing. With the valve connected to the main water pipe, connect the copper tubing using a clamp. This should be everything you need. Turn on the main water and you should be able to get a glass of water, but it will take an hour or two for the ice cubes to freeze.

    Take care..

    No water to the ice maker


    Check that the pipe that fills the ice maker is not iced up. Also check that the solenoid on the back (where the waterline hooks up) is making a humming noise when the ice maker calls for water.

    Too much water coming out of the pan (in the front of the ice maker) and copper pipes on top left side are covered with ice.


    Not real sure just what you are saying as to what pan? The copper pipes that go to the evap plates where the ice is made are supposed to frost over. They get colder than dew point of the air so this is normal. But all the pipes should frost. Does the unit shut down and give any type of beeping noises? This would be the control giving you a trouble code. You may have a water valve leaking. Turn unit off and see if water continues to run. All water should stop within a few seconds. Let me know what you find. Please verify model and serial numbers.

    LG Fridge-Tube where water dispenses in ice tray is frozen solid


    I think that the solenoid valve that supplies water to the ice maker is leaking ,it is located in the back of the refrigerator where you see a copper pipe or plasticpipe thatfeeds water to the refrigerator. Shut the water off and the power and take it out and replace it .

    Hello? I have a new Eclipse Kenmore being installed Tuesday 12/23. What do I need to provide for a water supply?


    Hi,

    I see your installation date has come and gone, but if you still need to hook up the water you can find an "ice-maker kit" from almost any home improvement store (such as Lowes, Ace, Home Depot etc....) This includes 1/4" bendable copper tubing and a valve that will tap a near by cold water supply pipe. If you find a kit with plastic tubing, I would steer clear and find the bendable copper. Plastic tubing kits are notorious for springing leaks. Buy some extra compression nuts and washers for the tubing while you are there, it may take more than one try to get a waterproof seal if this is your first time hooking up water and ice dispenser.

    When hooking up the tubing to the back of the refridgerator, leave a couple coils of slack to allow the refridgerator to be pushed in or pulled out without straining the connection. There is usually a small clamp on the refridgerator back to hold the tubing steady, make sure you use this. This will help ensure a leak free connection. After you have the tube hooked up, push the refridgerator all the way back, then pull it back out and check for leaks. Sometimes the tube will start dripping a bit after the refridgerator is moved, so this step helps ensure you won't have leak problems.
