It is probably a faulty water valve that slowly leaks water up to the icemaker and freezing. sometimes it will freeze inside the fill tube and block the water supply completely.

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

The water from the supply tube which supplies water to the icemaker freezes. Which is faulty - the icemaker or the water valve?

If the water is freezing in the supply tube then its not water valve or icemaker fault.Its the fault of defrost board.Its not letting the unit to defrost on time and this is causing the problem.If water is faulty then water will over flow or no water will flow,if ice maker is faulty then it will not make ice.Try manual defrost reset procedure: ----

First unplug the unit from main power outlet. Then empty whole unit completely. Then keep both the doors open. Wait for 24 hours. All the ice collected on the coils and in the freezer section will get melted. Clean the water from the sections. Then Connect the power cord of the unit to main power outlet after 24 hours/.Then set the temperature to normal in both fridge and freezer section. It will take near to 4 hours to get run in its proper cooling cycle. Then check, if the problem returns again. If the same problem occurs then it's defrost problem. The defrost board and the defrost thermostat/heater is not functioning properly and it has to be checked and can get the required parts from online sites like:--- or from searspartsdirect online site.---------This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Water not flowing out..the icemaker works fine, but when you select water, water does not flow out....what should I look at?

you can take a peice of weed eater line and stick through the water line in the door and see if it goes all the way through. If not then there is frozen water in the line.
if there is a coupler on the bottom of the door disconect it and try to dispence water if the water comes out there then the water valve is good and you need to defrost the line i the door a blowdryer usually works for this but it does take some time

Corrosion around icemaker intake line and water squirting out

The water shoot is the water line on the back of the freezer where your water enters the icemaker. What has probably happened is the water shoot has filled with ice and left enough space for water to spray out. What you will need to do is get a blowdryer and aim it towards the water shoot till the ice has cleared. This should resolve your problem. I hope I have helped you.

No ice. Icemaker does not fill with water.

Your inlet valve is behind the back access panel where your water hooks to. I would check the water shoot in freezer by icemaker to see if it is clogged with ice. Defrost it with a blowdryer. If I helped rate me.

Fridge not cooling

In the freezer compartment on the back wall there is a panel , behind that panel is the evaporator coil and return air ducts that go up to the fridge.
these ducts freeze up, thus not allowing the cold air to circulate to the refridgerator. You can unplug the unit overnight and let it defrost on its own, or you can help it using a blowdryer for a couple of hours. just lay the blowdryer in the freezer area with the doors open and let it sure to place an old towel on the bottom to catch the water.

My icemaker motor keeps freezing up. I can take

check your ice machine to be level, most are installed level, but then the installers tilt the machine back just a bit to assist in door closure, if your ice machine is even slightly out of level, it will over fill and clogg the motor the very first ice cycle

I know this sounds really stupid, but I think that my water line is frozen for the ice maker in my kitchenaid superba fridge. Everyone is suggesting using a blowdryer to defrost the line. My stupid...

The water line would run up the back of the fridge.

I don't know that the line could freeze, but I'm no pro. I just wouldn't think that would be possible.

Has the fridge been moved lately? Maybe the water line got pinched? Try checking where the water line runs, maybe it got pinched somewhere else (under counters/sink, etc).

Good luck!

Water not going into icemaker. Water dispenser works fine.

Check the water valve at the back of the fridge if present.

Even if you used blowdryer, ensure that linse are not frozen by performing a complete defrost.

Disconnect water lines from icemaker, and blow with compressor if the above did not work.

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.

Icemaker does not work

Hello Netmindr32,
You will need to replace your inlet valve. The problem is the water is slowly leaking into your icemaker fill line and freezing up. You will have a double inlet valve and the line going to your dispencer may be working fine but the one going to the icemaker is not sealing off. Be sure to defrost all the ice out after replacing the inlet valve. And please allow several cycles of your icemaker before it makes its first batch. It can take 2-3 cycles to fill lines and filters depending on your model. Lots of luck to you and please let me know if this helped you.
