I have the Kenmore version of this product and the same thing happened. My...

I had water leaking in to the freezer compartment of my LG french-door refrigerator (LFD25860). It was getting on to food in the main basket and embedding it in a block of ice, as well as puddling-up on the bottom of the freezer and eventually blocking the door from closing properly. Because the water seemed to be covering a wider area than you would expect from a blocked defroster drain I didn't believe that my problem was covered by the other FixYa recomendations -and it turned out I was right.
The problem turned out to be that the "funnel" that the water flows through to fill up the ice tray was blocked by a solid piece of ice. When the icemaker would call for more water it would flow down the clear tube (with the open slots on the top) hit the ice and spray/overflow in to the freezer compartment.
The solution was obviously to pop this ice out, but that did require me to remove the icemaker from the wall of the freezer compartment. To do this you
  • remove one screw from the bracket on the bottom of the icemaker
  • Slide the icemaker up and slip it off of the two screws with rubber grommets on them.
By the time I got to that stage I had already removed the basket from the main drawer and removed the pull out tray/basket from the drawer pulls (by simply lifting the plastic tab on the right side and lowering the plastic tab on teh left side). I am not sure if you can remove the icemaker without this step, but I believe so.
Also, if you want to entirely remove the icemaker from the freezer there is only one plug with wiring to undo. As I mentioned above, the water hose doesn't not connect to the icemaker, it ends above the "funnel" and the water drops in. So removal is much simpler than you might expect.

As for the cause of the ice block, I am not sure but I believe it was either because the ice maker made too much ise one time and some cubes could not pop out. When additional water entered the funnel it didn't flow in to the ice tray, backed up, and froze in the funnel. The other thought is that when the door was not closed properly while our grandparents were visiting, the ice melted and subsequently re-froze causing the problem.

I have a carrier humidifier model #HUMCCLBP18-A. I shut the water off to install a new filter, and now I cannot get the water back on. I'm not sure if I need to turn the water opener to the right or to...

First I have a question for you. Is the shut off valve a saddle type valve or inline? A saddle valve will mount directly on the water line and be held in place with two machine screws. They will generally have a t type handle. The inline is just what you would think in that it is part of the water line. This type of valve may have the same t handle. Either way to shut valve off you turn clockwise and counterclockwise for on. Off to the right .
Most of the valves used for this application are a needle valve they have a pointed end that seals into a recess in valve body when closed. It's possible that when you shut it off the valve stem broke or just stuck in off position. If there is a small hex nut around the valve stem where it goes into valve body then you can shut off water supply off to inlet of valve and remove the nut and try to pull stem up with small pliers.
Either way if you can't get valve to open then you can easily replace them. Either the saddle valve or compression valve should cost under ten dollars. If you do replace then just follow instruction that come with valve.I hope this helps you some. Thank you

Slow water flow

First try a new water filter. If doesn't help, this is often caused by a piercing type saddle valve used to tap into water supply. Try turning it all the way off and on again. If dosn't help, you should replace with a drill type saddle valve. Also try to use copper for water line to unit.

What is the saddle valve?

Your humidifier will have either a copper or plastic tubing attached to it. This tubing is the water tubing. If you follow that line to where it "taps" into a water line (near the water heater or a water line under your house), there should be a water shut-off valve. The water shut-off valve could be any type of valve but is normally a saddle valve. You could skip the step of shutting off this valve; however, it is good practice to shut the valve off for two reasons: 1. in the event of a water leak, you will be able to easily locate the valve to shut off the water. 2. if the valve is not "excercised" from time to time, the seals will dry rot and the valve will not be capable of doing it's job when the need arises.

Here is a video showing you how to trace your water line to your saddle valve. There is additional information on the video that you might find helpful as well.

Amana model ARB1914 with 1C11B icemaker has deformed ice cubes

Heat guns are typically a bad idea as most people will hold it in one place too long melting,or disfiguring the plastic on the icemaker or worse,the cabinet.

Removing and using hot water is always the best way!

The usual problem for small, or hollow ice cubes is a bad saddle valve. There really isn't a good saddle valve in my opinion as they always clog either from mineral or rusting from the inside out.

What you want to do is find your shutoff valve. Sometimes in the basement, or under a sink if it is close by the refrigerator and look to see how it is hooked up. If it has a valve like the attached pic then it would be best to call in a plumber and have him replace it with a toilet style ball valve which will never restrict water flow and will always work!

The two main types of saddle valves are self pierce (absolute garbage) and drill type. If you look at where the valve straps to the pipe it will either have a round or square gasket. The square gasket ones are the worst and 99.5% of the time are the problem.

Maytag refrigerator Model MZ02766GEW does not dispense water

In the water supply line to the refrigerator is normally a saddle type valve where the water supply is connected to your house water line. Trace it back and shut the valve off fully then turn it back on. When some work is done to any part of your household water system sediment may have lodged in the saddle valve causing a restriction. Closing the saddle valve and reopening it may dislodge the restriction.

Water line

If the refrigerator was designed for water there will be a connection in back with a 1/4 inch compression type fitting to connect the water to. You may need to purchase a kit with a saddle valve and 1/4 in hose to route from the saddle valve to the refrigerator.

Water not running through humidifier

Sounds as if you feel the problem is the saddle valve. Check to see if water is available at the humidifier. Close the saddle valve, disconnect the water line at the humidifier side, then slowly turn the saddle valve back on. If you never see water, then correct the saddle valve. You can get details here:
If you are getting water, but dont think that the unit is operating try sending 24VAC directly to the hunidifier and see if it operates, bypass the humidistat etc.
