Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

Electrolux will not stop making ice.

I have an Electrolux stand alone ice maker that will not stop making ice. I have defrosted and cleaned all the major components, but didn't notice a sensor that would signal when to stop making ice. This is a new problem that has been going on for the last month. The ice ben gets full and causes an ice water fall to form from the cube maker.

Sounds like the ice level switch is either jammed on or is faulty.
Look for a flap of some kind that rests on the ice when it's made. Should be located at the back of the hopper.

SOURCE: The water continues to drip after the ice cube maker is full.

Sounds like the water fill solenoid valve is leaking by. You will have to change that solenoid valve if the water continues to drip into the ice maker tray after a normal fill cycle. http://www.partselect.com/AdvancedModelSearch.aspx?ModelNum=JCD2295HES&mfgModelNum=JCD2295HES&fkMfgID=1

SOURCE: Leaking icemaker

You may want to check that your water line isn't cracked.

Ours cracked and now we need to replace our floor. The water line is too close to the compressor which heats the plastic tubing and makes it brittle. Our refrigerator is 9 years old. Model #TPX24BRYFBB

Good luck

SOURCE: water dispenser on front of refrigerator door does not dispense water. Ice Cube maker continues to make ice cubes. Defrosting doesn't fix problem.

Water dispensing solenoid is bad. You need to replace the solenoid valve. This typically is independent of the ice maker.

How long once the ice maker starts making ice should we use it


What kind of ice maker is it? Is it a stand alone or is it inside your freezer? If inside your freezer it will take two days to fill the storage container. Stand alone types usually make 20 lbs of ice in 24 hrs or so.

Electrolux american fridge freezer cooling problem


There is a defrost timer on the unit. It is supposed to come on and melt the ice that forms on the coils in the evaporator. IF you get a lot of ice built up or something is wrong with the timer, it wont melt the ice or it wont come back on to cool the unit.

Jenn-air ice maker, stand alone unit, will not shut off, keeps producting ice.


There should be a sensor inside the ice maker bin that tells the ice maker when its full. It may be a wire or an arm on top of the ice. If you accidentally knocked that off the ice maker won't know when the bin is full and just keeps making ice

Electrolux icon stopped making ice


You may have gotten rust or debris in the line when you turned it back on, Check water connection and clean out the screen. Air should work out of the line quickly, but can cause some delay in ice making.

Kitchenaid stand alone ice does not make ice feel heat inside bin


Either has electric problem or mechanical.
way to tell is plug it up, turn it on turn on water. If its sending in water unplug it and if water stops it is electrical and the ice maker head is causing the problem if it stops the water valve is stuck open and you can disassemble and clean it out sometimes. A slight lime scale can cause this.
Hope this helps please rate me accordingly and good luck.

Bosch stand alone freezer Intelligent 32 - how to defrost


Hi
I have the same refrigerator and found the manual;
"The refrigerator compartment was programmed to defrost automatically meaning you do not have to constantly clean and dry it. Copy from the manual"
Also have a look in the back for the drain outlet - very small. If that is clogged up it also cause water on the inside.

CLR2060 Clear Ice Maker Won't Freeze


Water is not supposed to run all the time. Maybe you have a problem with your solenoid or the circuit that shuts your water. Sometimes solenoid just needs cleaning.
