MAKE SURE THAT THE WATER SUPPLY SOLENOID VALVE IS NOT STUCK OPEN BY DEBRE. AS FOR THE HAIR DRIER ??? THERE IS A LIMIT T-STAT THAT PREVENTS THE ICE-CUBE MAKER HEATER WIRES OR PLATE FROM OVER HEATING. MAKE SURE TO LET THE IT COOL-OFF TO RE-SET THE SAFTY SWITCH. YOU CAN CHECK TO SEE IF SOLENOID IS ENERGIZED BY PLACING A METAL BUTTER KNIFE CLOSE TO THE TOP OF THE SOLENOID... YOU SHOULD FEEL THE MAGNETIC PULL FROM THE SOLENOID. ALWAYS MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE ADEQUATE WATER GOING INTO AND OUT OF THE WATER SOLENOID VALVE ... USUALLY LOCATED BEHIND THE FRIG WHERE THE ICE MAKER IS LOCATED.

6ED2FHGXVA ice maker making too much ice, why?

That is the dual water control valve that is leaking water to the ice maker. The ice maker will only fill for 7.5 seconds and then the water is turned off but if the valve is bad it will continue to leak water drips until it overflows the ice maker and forms an ice wonderland inside your freezer. There is no picture of the valve but here is a link to the valve part=> http://click.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/click?id=q2qDfOBHgas&subid=&offerid=92089.1&type=10&tmpid=2111&RD_PARM1=http&RD_PARM2=%253A%252F%252Fwww.appliancepartspros&RD_PARM3=.com%252Fwhirlpool-valve-inlt-w10158157-ap4371188.html

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.

Frigidaire Superba Ice Maker not stopping making ice

-Turn the ice maker off. If still leaking and decide not to use the ice maker to make any more ice then unplug the
water valve that let water run to the ice tray. Only the one for the ice. Otherwise you will not have any water at all.


Good luck

Water continues to leak from the ice maker into

Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";} The water inlet valve may be staying open. It's on the back where the water supply is connected. You can swap the wires on the dual water inlet valve and disconnect the water line at the valve which goes to the ice maker. When you try the water dispenser the water will come out there. When you stop the water dispenser, if the water at the valve doesn't stop, the valve isn't closing so you'll need to replace it.
