    The water valve is powered by the ice maker. You either have a bad water valve or a bad ice maker. Nothing else in the ice box controls these 2. Since you need to get a new water valve when you purchase your new ice maker if the water valve ain't it and you have to replace the IM then you have a new water valve in place.

My ice maker does not make ice but water does run to front of fridge plz Help ????


I can't make out the words in your picture so there is not a lot of information to go on, but I will give it a try. If yours is like my refridgerator, there are a couple of off switches for the ice maker. One is on the control panel like the one you tried to photograph. Mine selects crushed ice, cubed ice, or ice off. The other soff switch is the lever switch that sits over the ice cube reservoir inside the freezer and shuts off the ice maker when the reservoir is full. If this lever switch is stuck in the up position you will make no ice. You say that water runs out of the front. Another problem that I once had with my ice maker was that the plastic housing around the ice cube tray cracked. One tray of ice cubes was made but when the ice maker flipped the tray over to expel the ice cubes the cracked plastic prevented any torque on the tray and the ice cubes would not come out. When the tray returned to the upright position new water would flow onto the tray, but since it was already full of ice cubes the water would simply overflow into the ice bucket reservoir. It did this over and over until I had an ice sculpture in my freezer and reservoir instead of ice cubes.

Scotsman ice machine water runs continually never shuts off. It will make ice but really racks up water bill. It is as if the float never senses the reservoir is full. What is my problem?


OK is the bin full of ice to where the ice stops making ? and is the water running over into the ice bin. If this is whats happening then cut the machine off, If water is still coming into sump tray then pull the water inlet valve and replace it. If the water stops when you shut the machine off then check the water float or sensor since i don't know what model you have, If float then replace it , if probe sensor then replace it. Now if there is no water running over into ice bin during freeze cycle then nothing is wrong ice machines use a lot of water every time it go's into a harvest it dumps the water in the sump tray.

Ice maker runs continuosly but no water is in the cube tray


It could be the valve. If it does not let water in, it will try to make ice and none forms so the motor keeps turning waiting for ice to form.
If the motor is turning its fine. Concentrate on how the water reaches the tray, its probably not getting there.

Why does water not shut off after making ice


Is the bin drain line and dump drain line tied together. If so then it is melting ice from the bin. now when ice machine starts up it will dump the old water in sump tray so it will be fresh water during new freeze cycle.

If the water valve is leaking a bit, it will cause freezeup, as will a flow restriction. The 'water splashed inside freezer' sounds like leaky shut-off valve.

Sometimes those 'saddle pirecing' water shutoff valves get restricted, so you are not getting enough pressure.

Also, if you had things disconnected, a little bit of grit may be in the filter or shut-off valve, causing issues.

I would:

a) check the house water pressure, to make sure it's normal

b) check/clean/replace fridge water filter

c) inspect/replace saddle valve and look for kinked water feed line

d) backflush water out of fridge, if possible, and look at clean/inspect/replace water valve.

Although they do make add-on heater kits for water maker feed lines, your issue just sounds like a water flow issue...either a leaky valve or a flow restriction.

My ice maker appears to be overfilling when allowing water to enter tray///


More than likely the water valve on rear of unit is not shutting of in time (occurs alot living out in the country where one is on water well). This box also has a ice maker that can ware down and run slow, doesn't shut water off before it supposed to. If you have not replaced Ice Maker within the last 4-6 years replace I/m and water valve, it's time for repalcement.

Hi Jeff, Had same problem. Turned out that the fill tube for the ice cube tray had filled with ice. I solved the problem by removing the tube from the back and letting warm water thaw the ice. Reinstalled and it works fine. You may also want to try a blow dryer while still in the freezer, but that may take some time. Good luck, Jim

Ice Maker water keeps running


Bad I/M, won't shut off after harvest and continues to restart cycle. Heater in I/M should warm up thermostat after first harvest and stop unit from recycling.
