Obviously, your ice maker problem could be any number of things... Now that you have water to the ice maker, is the inlet valve opening to allow water to get to the ice maker itself? If it is, is the line that runs between the inlet valve free to allow water to get to the ice maker? if it is, is the ice maker cycling ( meaning the motor rotates the drive mechanism that times the cycle of opening the valve, rotating the mold tray then releasing the ice with a small mold release heater? An ice maker that's ~ 13 years old probably has a removable front cover so that you can see the drive gears.. Also, is the lever that senses the ice cube bin is over full in a position ( normally down) that allows th eice cube maker to cycle? Hopefully, these simple checks will help you trouble shoot the problem and get your icemaker functioning again. Hope this helps !

How do I hook up the plumbing. Do you have an exploded diagram of the back panel where all the water hook ups are at.


It depends on the refridgerator. Some have two inlet valves. Basically, you have a water line from the home. Usually copper line. You also will have two places for water lines on the opposite side of the inlet valve. Sometimes you may only have one. The line leading from fridge ( if ice and water through door) will hookup to the line where you have the fridge connactor. The quick connects to the inlet valve. The second one will be for ice maker. That water line runs up the back of fridge into freezer. Make sure you place the quick connects in the right spot. Process of elimination because some inlet valves wont let you change the hoses once installed. Connect the main water line from the home. Connect both quick connects dont connect water lines yet. Push the water thru the door botton and see which valve opens on the inlet. Which valve on inlet opened and allowed water to come out. That is for fridge and other is for icemaker.

If you need further assistance please feel free to contact.

Ice maker is producing ice but not dispensing ..filter symbol is being displayed..Any guidance would be appreciated


order a new icemaker, about 100.00 from parts company, heat element not working to help release ice. Its an easy fix and will save you a service call for 150 additional bucks. Its a matter of taking out old one. First turn off water valve to fridge. Take out old icemaker and remove electrical supply, just a squeeze and the clip should come out. Place new electrical connection, connect water supply line, turn on water line to fridge fridge, the compartment should fill and then ice in about an hour or 90 min.

Your inlet tube that goes to the icemaker may be frozen. To Check: Shut off water supply to Fridge, disconnect the water line that goes to the icemaker at top back. Use a flexible item to insert in the water line connection. I used a zip tie. If the flexible item won't all the through to the ice maker, the line is frozen. Thaw out the tube from inside the freezer with a hair dryer. Re-connect everything, you now have ice . . . Solution #2: You may have to replace your "Water Inlet Valve" located at bottom right rear of Fridge. Easy to do, just follow the color codes, be sure and shut off the water.

How to replace an icemaker hose


Turn water off from the supply. There should be a valve that the 1/4" water line connects to, if not you will have to shut off the water main. Using a wrench remove the nut from the water line connection (usually a compression fitting. You will need a need compression sleeve with the new line x2, one for the valve and one for the fridge. Next disconnect the line from the back of the fridge. Run the new line the same way the old one was run, for easiness. Make sure you leave enough slack behind the refridgerator to allow it to be pulled out and cleaned behind. Once all connections are tight you can turn the water back on and ensure you don't have any leaks. Hope this helps.

Icemaker dont work after power outage


Make sure the ice bail wire is not lifted. If it is, the ice maker will not make ice.

The water valve may have failed to. It's in the bottom back of the refrigerator, and the water line normally connects near where the valve is.

Let me know what you find.
