No water going into the ice tray


Make sure that you DO have water going to the unit. If this is a new refr. call an authorized technician to repair it under the warranty. Not much else you would want to do to it.

Hello!ad my black glass fridge freezer delivered today with ice n water dispenser and plummer cudnt work out instructions if the water filter canister goes on the inside or out! also where does the pipe...


Post your model number for filter help. The water supply hook to the water inlet valve on the back, Usually near the bottom. It has a fitting where the incoming water will fit. You may have to remove part of the cardboard on the back to get to it.

Whirlpool GR2FHTXVQ00 fridge. Water dispenser


The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.
The valve can leak because of sediment in the water preventing it from closing or low water pressure.

You can thaw out the fill tube and replace the inlet valves.

Ice maker not making ice


The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips and replace it if it does.

Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

Water dispencer and ice dispencer stopped working


Make sure the water supply line is turned on (the valve probably is behind the fridge or under the sink ) also check if is kinked or damaged.

Frigidaire won't make ice & dispenses only about 4 oz. cold water


Water frozen in the freezer supply line - you need to thaw out the freezer. About six hours, door open, turn freezer OFF. You'll need a cooler with dry ice for your frozen food. 99% certain it'll work after that.

Kenmore Ice Maker Not Making Ice


the water that is frozen in the fill tube could have come from the old water valve that you replaced ,you got to get the ice out, the easiest way ,though not the fastest ,is to unplug fridge for 24 hrs . and leave the doors open to let it defrost, the plug back up and hopefully in 5 or 6 hrs you'll have ice

Hi Chubbo,

 

 When you say you checked the Valve, did you check the Supply valve that feeds water to the fridge, or the Solenouid valve that usually casues this problem.  Unplug your Fridge and roll it away from the wall.  Remove the  rear access panel  and trace the water supply tubing to the solenoid valve. Lots of time the valve is bad.  You  can get a replacement  Solenoid.  at any Appliance part store, or online at www.repairclinic.com

 

If you did check that. You can get a coupling that will adapt from the water supply directly to the line coming from the solenouid to pressure up and see if you actually have a flow problem between the solenoid valve and ice tray.

 

Hope this is helpful to you. Good Day
