Ice Maker Flooding- how to detach plug to replace

The ice maker on GS25JEMAWW is flooding the freezer and the kitchen. Water does not stop pouring out- like a hose. Water stops when ice maker is turned off. We are trying to replace or repair it but we can't get the plug detached from the ice maker inside the freezer. We called GE and they said just to pull it- but it won't budge. We suspect just pulling it probably isn't correct. There are no tabs to push or squeeze. We have detached ecerything else except the plug- any suggestions for repair, replace, unplug????

Dear friend,
ngfam at you service! happy to assist!

They are correct I pull them out 4 times a week!
Perhaps it is just jammed in withe corrosion or frozen!
If you failed to pull it out by hand, get a rubber handled channel lock and grab it tight and wiggle it a little as you pull or pry id out gently! THE ONLY WAY TO GET IT OUT ,EVEN IF SERVICE DOES IT WILL BE TO PULL THE PLUG OUT!!!!!!!!!

Perhaps you should try service!

Freezer flooding from ice maker


I've maker solenoid not allowing refrigerant to fill evaporator so water can't freeze on it to make the ice

I have an admiral American fridge freezer. The ice maker is continuously leaking water if the power is switched on as though a switched on. How can I stop the water ?


To verify if its the valve or the ice maker the easiest way would be to unplug the machine and then turn the water on. If the water stops, then the ice maker is bad and is continuously applying power to the valve causing the flood problem and should be changed. If the water keeps on coming out then the valve is bad and stuck open and should be changed.

Our kitchen and pantry were flooded because the icemaker wouldn't shut off. My husband had to unplug the refrigerator to stop the water from pouring out


That is a rare happening but the solution is inside the ice maker itself. Click Here=>MSD2732GR Ice Maker Parts Break Down Part 13 is the Click Here=> 627985 Ice Maker Thermostat and sometimes it is just less expensive to replace the complete Ice Maker=> Ice Maker

My icemaker just stopped making ice today....please help


Hi, first , pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If if freezes , and dumps , replace the water valve. If it does not dump the cubes , replace the ice maker. After pouring the water into the ice maker , remove the bottom kick panel , and clean the bottom coils , of dust , lint , pet hair , etc , as this will raise the freezer temp . An ice maker has to be 5 degrees , to operate , correctly . If ice maker starts working , after cleaning the coils , GREAT ! ( it does happen ) .

Take care

I woke up this morning to a flooded kitchen due to the ice maker, in my Amana refrigerator, not making ice and just pouring out water. What is the problem?


Either the switch in the ice maker is stuck keeping the valve open or the valve has stuck. Unplugging the frig will tell you which it is. If the water stops when the frig is unplugged it is the switch. If it does not then it is the valve.

Water is leaking from the ice maker. It is


Are you sure the ice maker is leaking? MOst often it is a blocked drain. The problem you are experiencing is normally a blocked evaporator drain line. Whether you have a side by side model or a top mount freezer the solution is relatively the same. Most top mount freezer models have a rear evaporator panel covering the aluminum evaporator coils. There are some instances where the evaporator coils are on the floor. These instructions are for top mount freezers where the rear freezer panel covers the evaporator coils. First of all, if there is an ice maker in your unit, this will have to be removed. Normally there are two screws which can be loosened and the body of the ice maker can be lifted off the screws leaving only a plug in harness to disconnect. Remove the harness either from the plug at the left wall or rear of the freezer and set it to the side. Next, remove all the screws securing the rear panel. Remove the rear panel exposing the aluminum evaporator coils. Be careful not to damage these coils as they contain the freon that cools your refrigerator. If you look closely underneath these coils, there will be ice from frozen defrosted water. Using a hair dryer and not a heat gun, melt all the ice and sop up the water with a towel. Now you will see a drain hole which is normally still blocked with ice. Pour hot water in this hole and sop it up. Keep doing this until you pour water down the hole and it drains into the evaporator drain pan either under or behind your refrigerator. Once you have unblocked this drain line, reassemble and plug the refrigerator back in. Set all controls to the middle settings and within 24 hours, your unit will be functioning correctly once again.

Maytag ice2o won't make ice


theharrisont,  You state that...." ice maker stopped working after it flooded our kitchen floor."  The water works because the water fountain dispenser uses a separate part of the Water Valve. The ice maker portion of the water valve is defected and the entire Water Valve Assembly will have to be replaced.  Your problem is the dual Water Valve Assembly which is located on the rear bottom area of the refrigerator (follow the water inlet line from the wall to the refrigerator...the water inlet line connects to the Water Valve Assembly).  The significant info which you provided was that the ice maker flooded the kitchen which indicates the Water Valve Assembly is defected. Failure to replace the Water Valve Assembly will result in the same problem of flooding at some later date.  Replacing the dual Water Valve Assembly is just one step of several steps necessary to correct the problem.  You will also have to temporarily remove the ice maker from the freezer (usually a couple of screws hold it to the wall and a quick disconnect electrical plug) and put it in the sink and run warm water over to remove any ice.  Before you reinstall the ice maker you must check the Water Fill Tube that dumps the water into the ice maker.  Because you said that the ice maker flooded the kitchen, then the Water Fill Tube is probably filled solid with ice which must be removed.  A hair dryer is a quick way to achieve this.  Blow hot air directly into the end of the Water Fill Tube which dumps the water into the ice maker.  Note:  Use a long screw driver to insert into the Water Fill Tube to break loose any ice and continue to use the hair dryer to help to remove any ice. This should correct your problem
