The ice maker has a timer in it so that a solenoid valve will open only about 7 seconds or so and then close again letting just enough water to go into the tray. What you want to check is the solenoid at the back of the fridge around the bottom part where the water supply is connected. Lot of times it may have an internal leak were even if the valve is closed it is still leaking water into the hose that supply water to the tray. This would cause the tray to continually receive water overflowing it.

My stand alone kitchen aid icemaker is filling up with water. It is making ice but it keeps filling up with water as well. I had a plumber come out last week because the ice maker was leaking. He fixed...


The drains on items like this get a sludgy residue built up in the drains. Make sure its clear. Empty the bin and you should see the drain port run a small amount of hot water in it. Not a lot as it could leak from the drain tray if it has one. If the drain is clear then it could be a nice maker issue where it's dumping too much water in the tray to harvest. Excess would spill over.

I was told that my new refridgerator will come with an automatic ice maker. What does that mean?


These days, modern fridges come with automatic ice makers that are built into the fridge itself. The fridge automatically fills the ice holders with water that then freeze into cubes. You can then tip the ice onto a tray that is removable and then the fridge will automatically re-fill.

My Sub-Zero 561 ice maker works fine however when it dumps ice into the tray and fills back up with water, the water pours out on the right side and into the ice tray. any suggestions


I had the same thing - turns out the wife tried to put a wine bottle in to the ice tray to chill it - in turn it had pushed the water pipe back a little too far and so was causing water to spill out - see if you can pull the pipe forward a little - you will need to remove the ice cube bin - and get in to a funny angle to get to it -but its do-able.
good luck

Excess water delivered to ice maker


That will depend on type of ice maker and model number of refrigerator. At times the water control valve will stick because of age or just leaking while off like a dripping faucet. Can you find model number of your whirlpool? I do have some repair manuals for ice makers if they are not the electronic type. Sea Breeze

I set the ice maker feature to make cubes with my samsung refrigerator rs2555sw. But the ice maker makes a ice chunk. All the cubes are frozen together with a flat and thick layer of ice on top..


Hi and welcome to Fixya.

Remove the front cover after the ice tray has dumped cubes and remove all of the water from your ice maker tray.

Then depress the test button on the bottom of the icemaker (in front on bottom) located about 1 inch from the lower rh corner.

The icemaker fill cycle should add just enough water to cover barely cover the tray. (see page 32 of the 25 Sept 2005 user's manual)

If it is overfilling the icemaker fill time / water level needs to be reduced on the ice maker module. A normal fill cycle is about 7.5 seconds.

Another thing that will cause larger cubes is high water supply (utility co) pressure.

A temporary fix would be to slowly close the refridgerator water supply line's shut off vavle so that the water flow restricts.

The real solution is to investigate ice maker fill time, and the function of the icemaker water supply solenoid vavle for possible Delayed closing of the internal diaphram.

Ice maker not producing ice. Tried everything in the Troubleshooting section of Users Manual. Replaced water filter. The front water dispenser is working.


the most likely thing would be a bad water valve.try to reset the ice maker and watch to see if the tray fills up the fill tube could also be blocked with frozen water.the last thing is simply a bad ice maker.

ICE MAKER


You can fill the tray with water from the tap and turn arm on. After doing this the ice maker should drop the ice that you made by poring water in the tray.This should tell the water solinoid to send water again to the ice maker.
This should solve the problem for a long time until it slowly tries to freeze the feed tube shut again. Thanks, Sea Breeze

2003 whirlpool ice maker doesn't work


May be an issue with the cam that operates the ice maker. U can pick up a new ice maker for about 40 bucks on ebay.

Lots of things could be bogus. If the solenoid does not open, no water in tray - no ice. If tray does not get warm for fingers, fingers cannot push ice out - no ice. If freezer is not at least 10 degrees, no ice making at all. If cam motor for maker is bogus, anything could be out of whack.

Make sure that the ice maker is in "on" mode.

If you pop the front cover off the ice maker you will find a screw with a plus and minus on it. Adjust it and that will cut the water fill down and should solve the overfill problem.If the ice is not dumping spray the tray with Pam and that should solve the dump problem.
