If the fill tube continues to drip water the fill valve is likely going bad. Is there a water filter in the system that you can check? Did you flush the main line in the back into a pan for a few seconds while you had it off to check flow rate, etc.?

Can you disconnect the ice maker only on a hotpoint ctx21ga refrigerater

Yes, you can disconnect the ice maker on a Hotpoint CTX21GA refrigerator. Here are the general steps to follow:
  1. Unplug the refrigerator from the electrical outlet or turn off the power at the circuit breaker.
  2. Locate the water supply line that runs from the back of the refrigerator to the ice maker. It is typically a flexible plastic or copper tube.
  3. Find the valve where the water supply line connects to the refrigerator. It may be located behind a panel or cover.
  4. Turn off the water supply to the refrigerator by closing the valve. You may need to turn it clockwise to shut it off.
  5. Disconnect the water supply line from the valve by loosening the compression nut or other connector.
  6. Locate the ice maker inside the freezer compartment. It is usually mounted on the back wall or ceiling.
  7. Unplug the ice maker's electrical connector by pulling it out of the socket.
  8. Remove any screws or mounting brackets that hold the ice maker in place and gently pull it out of the freezer compartment.
  9. If you wish to permanently remove the ice maker, you can disconnect the wiring harness and remove the mounting bracket.
  10. If you plan to reconnect the ice maker in the future, you can leave the wiring harness connected and store the ice maker in a safe place.
  11. Reconnect the water supply line to the valve and turn the water supply back on.
  12. Plug the refrigerator back in or turn the power back on at the circuit breaker.

I have a Jenn-air JSD2789GEQ the ice maker was working but now has quit , the water is working but slow and not much preasure

Most likely your inlet valve is bad. To test this disconnect the hoses from the inlet valce. One line is from your home the other two are the ones you disconnect. Test the door water first. After that switch the quick connects that run to the inlet UNPLUG fridge first. Switch connections plug back in and than test water in door again. See how much water is coming out. If plenty of water than in may be in your reservoir or your filter. If low pressure disconnect water line from home and see if you have good pressure If you have good pressure from the house than replace the inlet valve. If you dont than check house water pressure.If you have any questions please feel free to comment me.

Ice maker not making ice.

TRY DISCONNECTING THE ICE MAKER FROM INSIDE AND RUN HOT WATER OVER IT UN TIL IT IS COMPLETELY THAWED, THEN RECONNECT IT AND SEE IF IT WILL MAKE ICE NOW. SOMETIMES ICE MAKERS CAN BECOMED BLOCKED BY ICE.

My washer cold water wont work the supply is good and it puts out hot water whats wrong

If I understand your issue correctly, you're saying no cold water gets to the machine. If that's true, then do the following:

Turn off the hot and cold water to the machine
Disconnect the cold water hose to the machine - catch the water from the hose in a small container
Check for a plugged water inlet screen - this is pretty common
Clean the screen, reconnect the hoses, turn on the water, check for leaks and try again
If no luck, you may have a bad cold water inlet fill valve, but it's much more likely to be a plugged screen

Water wont go all the way into the ice maker

The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.
Or
Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

Clogging Frequently -- Very slow brew

Hello enrichyourli,
I recently had this similar problem. If you still have you machine try the following.
Your described problem may be one of two problems. Let's start with the easier solution first. In the DCC 1200 there is a filter "stick or column" in the left rear. Pull it out and remove the clogged carbon filter(s) that are in there. Shine a light into the receptacle and remove the debris in the bottom. It is likely that this is causing the problem with you machine needing to be started on multiple times. See if this solution works. If it does, you might run 8 cups of water and 4 cups of vinegar through to help decalcify the units plumbing. Do this once or twice and then rinse with at least one pot run-through of clean water. If this works then you are good to go.
Next, if this does not solve your problem we can do the following: unplug the unit and lay it on its back. You will need a #10 torx driver (hardware store if you don't have one) to remove the bottom cover plate. There are 4 torx screws holding it on. When removed, you will find 2 orange hoses. Carefully attempt to remove the left hose without splitting. I used a eyeglas screwdriver to loosen it up. If it splits, just cut off the split and stretch it to reconnect when time comes. As you look into the hose you will find a little black valve inside as well a some gunk. Clean it all out with a fine wire as best you can. Rinse well. Attempt to reconnect the hose back onto the pipe. Slip the pipe clamp back into place. Replace the cover and screws and you should be good to go again. This is not as daunting as it may seem. You can do it. :o) Good luck! If this answer helps, please leave positive feedback for me. Much appreciated. Regards, NormanZ
