Water stopped flowing out

It appears as though both the water and ice maker have stopped working. How can I fix this? How often should you have to clean out the hose and parts on the water system?

Water is not flowing into my GSI-23 ice maker.

As the harvest cycle (the ice maker fingers rotate to sweep the cubes out of the mold) comes near the end of the rotation, a switch in the ice maker activates to send power to the water valve (located under the refrigerator where the house water supply line connects) and allows perhaps 4 cc of water to flow up a 1/4" plastic line to a fitting on the back of the refrigerator that is aligned with the ice maker inside which then flows into the maker mold. That process refills the ice maker mold and everything shuts off to freeze this water and then initiate another harvest cycle when the entire process is repeated. If there is no water, then there is no ice. Focus on why the water isn't flowing all the way to the ice maker. Look for an ice blockage in the tubing that comes from the back, inside wall of the freezer to the ice maker, or a bad valve. It is rare, but the switch inside the ice maker could be bad. The water valve or a blocked water line are most likely the culprits. Another trick is to pour water into the ice maker mold, wait several hours and see if that freezes and ejects into the pan. If so the ice maker is working, it just has no water to freeze.

Water dispenser doesn't work

Replace the water valve on the refrigerator. The valve solenoid is stuck open causing water to flow freely. This should fix both issues with icemaker fill tube freezing and water dispensing.

Ice maker not making ice. do have water, no ice

The ice maker has a problem The ice maker is a separate appliance within the freezer section. Please see the How things Work section of our website to learn about the normal functioning of ice makers. Some common problems with ice makers are:

The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice
The ice maker is producing ice poorly
The ice maker has completely stopped producing ice Check to see whether the ice maker has been turned off. Here's how to check. Look for a wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If this wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. On some units you simply lower the wire to the down position to turn the ice maker on. On others, you lower a small red plastic lever to lower the wire. If the wire is in the proper position check the freezer temperature, it should be between 0-8 degrees Fahranheit. If it is warmer than 10-12 degrees, the ice maker may not produce any ice. Check your door seals and thermostat, repair/replace as necessary.

The ice maker is producing ice poorly When an ice maker is producing ice poorly--when it produces just a few cubes or none, or when the cubes are too small--it's usually because of a clogged water line or a defective water inlet valve.

First, check the water line attached to the back of the refrigerator for good water flow. To do that, first turn off the water supply valve. Then remove the water line from the back of the refrigerator. Next, place the water line into a bucket and momentarily turn the water valve back on to test the flow. If the flow is poor, you need to repair, clean, or replace the tubing or the shut-off valve that supplies the water. If the flow is good, you may have to replace the water inlet valve.

Ice maker not working

Cause could be the solenoid valve which controls water flow into the ice maker.

Could be bad solenoid, bad relay for solenoid, clogged solenoid valve, corroded electrical connections, etc.

Automatic ice maker won't make ice

Turn off water.
Disconnect the line after the filter.
Turn water back on. If there is no water flowing, replace the filter.
If there is water flowing, the feed valve is probably defective.

Amana Side-by-Side Fridge Model SBD21VPSE Problem started when water stopped flowing from in-door dispenser and ice maker stopped making ice. I emptied fridge and freezer, left unit off for several...

If there is a reset button on your ice maker try pushing it. Many ice makers have two holes for reset. A general rule of thumb is if the ice maker fingers are stopped in a slightly vertical position then your ice maker unit is working. If the fingers are stopped anywhere else then it needs some sort of attention or replaced. Make sure there is water, or ice in the ice maker tray, if not then the problem is with water supply.
