SOURCE: Ice Maker Overflowing

i would recommend changing the water valves as they may be sticking or leaking now you can take the icemaker loose get a small baby bottle short the terminals to cycle water fill catch it with the bottle and see how much water it dumps should be about 4 ounces if the valve leaks will over fill the ice maker over a period of time say the valve is leaking a few drops at a time and the bail arm has the icemaker shut off because its touching ice in the bin but the water just keeps dripping down the fill tube till it runs over did you replace the whole icemaker or just the motor module

SOURCE: Ice Maker Freezing Up and Ice not dispensing

Check your ice cube tray to see if it is warped. Mine was. I took the tray off and dipped it into boiling water and remoulded it to the original shape and re-installed it. So far no problems. The tray gets warped because of the ice cube release mechanism. The tray is rotated around until it meets a block on one corner which creates the twisting motion we used to do on manual trays. Over time it tends to warp the tray. Good luck

SOURCE: Ice maker problem

Clear the Ice tray by pressing the button under the ice maker. The problem is that the ice is in the first couple of slots is not dumping and the tray tries to fill again and over flows. I pressed the button and cleared the tray of ice (This will tilt the tray and twist it to empty it) that was re-frozen several times without dumping. My ice maker works perfectly after I did the above. I think the problem arises if the door did not close completely. I stopped hanging the dish cloth on the door and on my LG Dish wisher. I hope this helps

Ice maker Manitowoc QD-0212A


This light is a harvest limit light. This light's primary function is to be on as water contacts the ice thickness probe during the freeze cycle, and remain on throughout the entire harvest cycle. The light will flicker as water splashes on the probe. The lights secondary function is to continuously flash when the ice machine is shut off on a safety limit, and to indicate which safety limit shut off the ice machine. Start up of machine after turned off. !. Before the ice machine starts, The water pump and water dump solenoid are energized for 45 seconds to purge old water from the water trough. This ensures that the ice making cycle starts with fresh water. The water fill valve energizes after 45 second water purge, and remains on until the water level probe is satisfied. 2. to pre-chill the evaporator, there is no water for the first 30 seconds of the freeze cycle. 3. The water pump starts after 30 seconds pre-chill. An even flow of water is directed across the evaporator and into each cube cell.

Hss25gfta refridgerator ice maker seems to be stuck on off .It all of the sudden quit making ice and we can't find the solution.It makes water fine


Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly.

The ice maker suddenly no longer making ice can be caused by many things.

1. The freezer section is above 16 F.
a. Usually the cause is ice buildup on the evaporator coils as a result of an automatic defrosting problem.
b. The evaporator fan is not turning at full speed

2. The ice makers thermostat has failed. When the tray reaches 16F temp is closes the circuit and starts the ice maker harvest cycle.

3. The ice maker drive motor has failed.

4. The ice maker heating element has failed.

5. The inlet water valve is allowing water to drip into the ice tray during the freeze period of ice making.
a. You would note that the water fill area of the icemaker would have ice build up. Also in the very back of the ice make tray ice would build up and prevent the sweep fingers from rotating.
b. Usually when the above happens the rubber water inlet tub that goes from the back of the unit to the ice maker is frozen solid internally.
c. You can test this by removing the plastic hose from the rear top area of the unit and placing the upper end of the tub in a bucket for several hours. (ICE MAKER OFF) If you note water in the bucket the water valve is leaking water past the diaphram when the solenoid is supposed to be closed and must be replaced
6. The inlet water valve solenoid coil has failed.

Most appliance parts sources do not sell piece parts for this ice maker. They only sell the complete assembly. Here is one source of many on line sources for just the icemaker.

Should the water valve be leaking water by it is item 800 of this link that is also one source of many online sources: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5203104&diagram_id=24933031#d24933031

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Hot gas valve needs to be seated to make sure it doesnt leak thru. At times the valve will close but it doesnt seal so it bleeds thru. You will need a hotgas valve replaced.
