Hi,
There are several causes of this.
Here is a list to check. Some of this may seem silly, but follow it through.
1 Water supply to back of fridge is shut off.
2 Tube that supplies water is pinched or kinked closed. Similar to a Kinked garden hose.
3 Solenoid valve (electric valve that opens and closes that supplies water to ice maker tray has failed)
4 Solenoid valve does not seal completely allowing water to seep past it. If this is the case the tube inside the freezer compartment will have a solid piece of ice in it which prevents water from going into the ice make. (very common cause of failure) Take very close look at the tube. Usually it can be removed and reinserted fairly easily. You may possibly have to remove the Ice maker. That involves more work, but not a great deal. Let me know if you need to remove it and I'll write you a procedure.
5 Ice maker feeler arm up (crescent shaped cube style of ice maker) which shuts the ice maker off.
6 Switch inside Ice Maker that controls fill valve failed. Or other parts in it failed. Replace ice maker. (usually costs less that getting it repaired)
7 County did not pay water bill to the state, and they shut off your water to collect.
(Rare)
I hope this helps. As it happens to be new years eve. Don't let this ruin it in any way. Get a bag
of Ice at the local store and have a HAPPY NEW YEAR
Best, Mark

Hi,

Your icemaker's water inlet valve could be filled with ice. If it is, simplythaw the its water tube with a hair dryer to remove the blockage WaterInlet Valve will look like this. Try adjusting the thermostat to a colder setting. Or your icemaker might not be making ice because of a defective defrostthermostat.
Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Fix icemaker


Start at the water valve at back of unit and work your way to the ice maker. Make sure the hose at the back of the frig isn't block. Also that the arm on the maker is down and in the on position. If all this checks, then go back to the solenoid that turns the water on and off to the ice marker.

Ice-maker does not work. water valve seems to be working.


There are 3 things that can prevent an ice maker from not working.
1- Temperature of freezzer- Temp must be below 6 degrees on most ice makers.
2- Water inlet valve- Depending on how your ice maker cycles it calls for water for 7.2 seconds. If you have ice and water though the door you have a dual valve and the ice maker selinoid ine the inlet may be bad. Also make sure water is getting to valve. Just because water is coming through the door does not mean water is entering fridge. There is a reservoir in fringe that holds around 3 gallons of water that can still make water come out the door without water entering fridge.
3- Faulty Ice maker- over time the winding and other components can get worn out and fail.

First check the temperature in the freezer.
Next check the inlet valve. To do this you need to remove the hose going from the inlet valve to ice maker and switch with the hose leading to door. Push the actuator in the door to call for water and see if water enters the ice maker. If it does inlet is good. Replace Icemaker. If not replace inlet valve. There may be a problem with the icemaker still but wont know until inlet is fixed.

Ice maker doesn't work. How do I check to see if it's the actual icemaker or the water inlet valve?


go behind the fridge where the water comes into it. the hose should go into a valve. if you have water and ice in door. there will be two hoses coming out the other side. what I did was find the hose that goes up to the ice maker and unhook it and there was no water coming out while it was trying to make ice. that valve is replaceable and are even on ebay. on mine the water worked in the front door, but ice maker did not. I think the valve is common problem.

I have a model GSS22UFMDWW and the ice maker motor is freezing up and wont turn the screw to dispence the ice. I have removed the assembly and let the motor thaw and dry, replaced it and in about a week it...


Check the water inlet line to the icemaker. could have ice built up in it making it spray all over. Also it can be in the wrong position(water inlet hose). Make sure there is no air in the line from say it being a new fridge or a new water filter can interduce lots of air.
The air makes the water come out all over.
Get the ice maker to cycle and watch it and see how the water comes out. If its putting out too much water then water valve is issue. If the ice maker doesn't drop the ice out then its the ice maker.

KitchenAid ice dispenser tray is dry - not working


Put some water in the ice mold is what I would try. wait and see if the ice maker harvest a batch. If it does drop a batch but no more then the water valve is probably shot. The ice maker itself controls the water. It does this by filling the ice mold for 7.5 seconds. Here is your Ice maker repair manual and some repair photos along with a pictorial which snows how to check the water valve.

Water does not fill the ice maker to make ice. water comes oout the drinking water side.


This has happened to me and probably alot of others as well. Sometimes the water freezes in the tube that is filling the tray. get a flashlight and a small srewdriver. Carefully remove the ice maker from the freezer to get to the filler hose. If you see ice present that is the problem. Remove the ice and reinstall the ice maker. This is tedious sometimes because there just isn't much room to get to the fill hose. Hope this helps.

Water from despenser but not to the ice maker


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. If it doesn't

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.
