I have lsc27926st. The water tube to the ice tray froze and I used a hair dryer to unfreeze it. After the tube was clear the water will not refill the tray. I have turned the on/off switch a couple of times but still no water?

From the ice freezing tube may have caused valve to burn up on unit... these are normally plastic water valves on back side of unit lower right side... very common problem... i am a lg oem authorized servicer parts usually come from lg electronics in alabama unless you have a local supplier that you can go to...        the ice makers themselves have been problems on these models as well... 1 year warranty is all they give and usually 1 year 2 days they go out...   let me know if i can help anymore    ACHEATINGUNLIMITED@YAHOO.COM         TEXAS BASED APPLIANCE /HEATING AND AIR COMPANY

    I have the LG side by side model 5231JA2002A-S .Several times I managed to remove the water filter after hours of trying (to be changed about every 6 months). This time it is impossible to remove it even with the stronger hands and arms. I would never buy a refrigerator with this type filter, where the installation and removal is almost impossible.
    The replacement filter is extremely costly (around $50.00 ea) and finally I have to call a service tech just for the filter.

How do you unfreeze a frozen water line to the ice maker


i don't understand what you're discribing but if one of the lines are frozen you can use a hair dryer to melt it,put heat on for like a minute and take it off,you don't want to damage any of the plastic parts.

The ice maker is not working. The tube that refills the tray is


Good day,
The reason the fill tube is frozen is because the water valve on the back bottom of the machine is leaking. It is supposed to fill the ice maker after each harvest cycle and then close smartly.
It is leaking a small amount of water when the ice maker has told it to close.
The water valve is none serviceable and must be replaced.
You will have to completely defrost the fill tube. It can be a dicy problem, especially if rushed. Be patient. You can use a hair dryer but sparingly. Too much heat will start to melt things you don't want melted causing some nasty damage to the plastic and vinyl components. Ideally unplugging the machine and leaving the freezer door open overnight is the best way, but that creates problems with food if you have no where to store it.
The option is yours, but as said go slowly.

Ice maker and hose from back of fridge to it both frooze up.


Good day,
If the fill tube overfilled the ic maker and is iced itself, it is due to the water valve in the bottom rear leaking slightly after filling the ice maker during a normal cycle. The water valve will have to be replaced. However, it will take time and patience to get it thawed properly.
The ice maker should be removed and set aside to thaw out completely.
As well, the fill tube must be thawed out itself very carefully. Haste makes waste here. A hair dryer can be used but very sparingly since it's possible to start melting things you don't want melted.
Ideally the machine should be shut down but that's your call.
Once the new valve is installed and the machine reassembled it should be fine.

No water to ice maker.Ice maker quit making ice.


What I found was the problem was that I had not changed the filter on a regular basis.Because of this the water flow to the ice maker was restricted.What this caused was the water inlet tube on the ice maker to freeze up.On my unit it is a black rubber tube about 11/4 long on the right side.You can see it if you know what you are looking for.If you squeeze it you can tell if it is froze or not.You can use a hair drier to thaw it out or squirt water up into the tube .It does not take very long..To make sure it is clear disconnect the tube on the back of the fridge and blow into it.If there is no restriction the tube is clear.After you have determined the tube is clear add water to the ice tray so the unit will make ice this will start the ice maker to cycle.Its making good ice now.

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.

Amana refrigerator 20 condensation water in fridge


moisture in the freezer is condensed at the back in a tray that has a drain with a tube that drains to a tray at the bottom of the unit. In our case the drain was clogged and water froze in it. We removed the back panel and pulled out the tube from the drain spout. We then used a hair dryer to defrost the ice clog and a wire to route out the drain and the tube. This worked and we replaced the tube and sealed it with tape. It now drains properly into the tray.

Kenmore Side by Side Refrigerator Ice Maker Not Working


A couple things to check here. First see if there is ice in the tray. If so chances are the ice maker will need to be replaced however these are very reliable ice makers. If no ice in the tray pull up on the ejector blade (don't worry you won't break it) turn clockwise to start the ice maker thru a cycle. The ejector blade is the long white bar with fingers on it that run the length of the tray. Once it completes a cycle it should fill with water. If no water then either the fill tube is frozen over and will need to be defrosted or the water valve is bad.
