The refrigerator has a duel water valve, one for the ice-maker and one for the water dispenser (if equipped). The valve that the ice-maker relies on may be bad, or it could be the ice-maker itself. 
Another thing that could cause it would be the temperatures in the freezer. The ice-maker will not call for water until it reaches under 15 degrees. In addition, check the water tube behind the ice-maker to make sure it is not frozen, blocking more water from entering. The water does not go to the ice-maker or thru the filter unless the ice-maker turns on the water valve.

if you already checked this and think it is a different problem then let me know, i will help you figure it out.

I have a GEmodel GFSF2HCYAWW french door bottom freezer model. The ice maker seems to not be getting cold enough, resulting in drippin water that freezes all cubes that do form into one huge clump o


Sounds like your water inlet valve is leaky. Go to repairclinic dot com AnD type in your model number. they will have a fixit kit with all the icemaker gear in it for the big bucks, as well as the individual parts separately. Check that your fill hose has not failed or that the icemaker mech assembly is not cracked or broken.

Ice maker is not making ice, but water from door dispenser flows normally. Ice in the tray (where it is made), but it won't dump into the holding tray. any solutions?


Greetings,

The first thing to check is the tube that puts water into the icemaker...this sometimes freezes up from a leaking water fill valve..if so, this blocks the water from filling the i/m....if its not frozen up and is clear(open) then your fill valve is bad or your icemaker module(if equipted) with that style...

My icemaker is not working. Water not filling tray


Probably the valve that feeds water to the ice maker leaks and this water freezes up at the filling tube to the ice maker and the water doesn't go through, but if the filling tube is not frozen and the ice maker doesn't call for water the problem is in the ice maker inside board ,if so you should replace the ice maker.

ICE DISPENSER


Dmuehr,

Are you sure it is a leak. Is the solenoid actually cutting off BEFORE the tray is full of water? If not, it is not a leak. The filling time for the icemaker water tray (where the ice freezes) varies depending on the local water pressure. With higher pressure, the tray may overfill. Your icemaker motor module timer may be set too long for your specific water pressure, so that the tray overfills. There is an adjustment on the module for shorter or longer fill time. You will need to remove the icemaker (3 screws probably) and reset the timer. It may take 2 or 3 tries to get it so the trays are about 80 to 90% full.

Water line to water dispenser is freezing up inside the freezer


Try using an hairdryer or defrosting the unit completely , this often get rid of blockage caused by frozen lines fixing the problem.

The water lines can also be unblocked from dirt using a thin flexible shaft. This after defrosting.

If all that does not fix the problem, then you may need to replace the water valve, the icemaker solenoid, or the whole icemaker assembly.

10 yr old Frigidaire ice maker stopped making ice


try forcing the cycle by manually triggering the cycle a few times. Sometimes you can detach the trip arm or turn the tray by hand by disconnecting it from the gear. There may have been a switch bumped to turn it off or the switch somehow jammed. Maybe check for freeze-up. If there is water in it, it's going somewhere.

Ice maker tube freezing up


  • change the water valve on the back of the machine.
  •  the water valve is slowly leaking water up to the icemaker where it freezes and builds up ice, blocking the water flow.
