Ice machine not filling up with water

I had a small leak in the water line (plastic) that I had to repair. I turned off the water to the unit, repaired the leak, but now the ice machine isn't getting water or the water isn't filling the tray. There is water to the unit because I can get water at the door. Is there some sort of reset that I don't know about or do I newed a new module?

I'm uncertain as to your approach to the actual repair of the tubing, but when you turned the water off and then on some sediment may have clogged the water inlet screen for the icemaker. Turn the water off and check the water inlet screens for a possible clog. If not clogged, contact an appliance service company.

What would cause my ice maker to leak into the plastic ice bucket?


The most likely cause is the fill valve is leaking and causing the ice maker to overfill. Try a new fill valve. Usually located on the rear of the appliance. (where you hook the water line to).

Our Ice machine is not working. It does not fill up with water to make the ice. Is the line frozen, how can we verify which line it is?


there is a small pump at the back of your unit. It is not pumping the water from your fill line into the ice tray. Use the model and serial numbers on your unit and purchase a new pump from an appliance repair store. Approximate cost is $10.00 and takes about 30 minutes to replace. Its an easy do-it yourself job. Your fill line will be attached to the base of the pump. Remove the fill line and the dispense line and the 2 screws holding the pump in place. Install new unit, replace screws and hoses turn water on and you are done.

Ice maker was over filling with water, slowly quit maiking ice - does not make ice now


Good day,
The overflow is usually due to a defective water valve on the bottom rear of the machine closing too slowly or continuing to dribble instead of shutting off promptly. The valve needs replaced since they are non repairable. However it is best to perform a step by step procedure to correct the problem.

First step is to take a small paper cup of water and fill the cavity until it is near full. With the ice maker turned on, close freezer door and wait 3 hours to see if it harvests. If not, the ice maker is bad, and must be replaced. If the cubes harvest then.......
Three possibilities.
1. The water supply from the house is not delivering water to the water valve. Shut off the house at the meter, disconnect the line going to the water valve, and with the line pointed into a bucket, have someone turn the valve back on for a 15 second count. The water should come out smartly. If not, the line and it's fittings will have to be replaced.
2. The fill tube from the back of the machine that feeds water into the back of the ice maker is frozen up. You will have to remove the ice maker to visually inspect that tube. If blocked, it needs to be defrosted, but use caution. Too much heat too fast will start to melt plastic and vinyl parts you don't want melted.
If this is the case, then once cleaned out, you will have to change the water valve located in the back bottom rear of the machine because it is leaking during the off cycle.
3. If everything checks O.K. up to this point, you will have to purchase and install a new water valve, and install it.
P.S. Under very rare occasions the electric circuity in the ice maker will fail to send a signal to the water valve. Although rare, it can happen, in which case the best option is to replace the ice maker and water valve.

My icemaker went on the blink, found water all over kitchen floor now it will not make ice but the freezer functions great. Model number ED2FHAXB04


Sometimes the water inlet are of an ice maker for no reason will freeze up preventing water from reaching the tray and making a mess. What will happen is the ice maker fill tube on the back of the cabinet also freezes up. As a result the icemaker tries to cycle pressure then builds up in the plastic feed line to the fill tube. This pressure build up in a very "low pressure" plastic line causes that plastic line to push itself out of the press to fit connections (fittings) at the back of the unit or under the unit. Hence the next cycle it just ports water to the now open line causing water to go to the floor instead of the icemaker.

You can locate the source of the leak by simply following the plastic fill tube and re-insert it into the fitting. You still need to find the ice build up that caused the initial leak and melt that ice buildup with a hair dryer or a fan until it is clear. Once you clear the ice blockage (near the rear of the icemaker) it should work normally again.

Ice cube maker not working. I saw water frozen in the plastic shute leading to the ice trays.I used a hair dryer to melt the ice in the shute. The white gear IS turning. Still no filling of water. Door...

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.

Ice machine will not stop filling with water...overflows


This sounds like a stuck water valve. Un-plug the fridge and see if the water stops flowing to the ice maker. If it stops, it's a control board (if equipped) or ice maker issue.

If not, turn the water off to the fridge, pull the fridge away from the wall, get behind it and trace the water line (small, plastic line) from the back of the fridge going down to the water valve. Remove the cover, and you may need to remove the water solenoid (the water valve) and see what happened.

Thin Ice on Whirpool Ice Maker


Hi

If  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.


Please do rate the solution as "FixYa" if found useful and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Ice maker or supply line leaking water at icemaker


Hello Carltomoree,

Interesting question(s)...

Problems COULD be a lot of things... but since you have gone to all the trouble to locatize A PROBLEM... I would LOOK
right there first... and fix that...

PLASTIC FITTINGS do often split and fail... or simply need to be reseated and firmly tightened... (do not overtighten).

Water valve... too strong... (probably not)...

BECAUSE a leaky water delivery can have
a profound effect on the fill of the ice cube tray...

Allow the refrigerator to stabilize... SEVERAL DAYS
and then start worrying about the fill level...

Ice makers are TYPICALLY adjustable for different water flows.
so the amount of water delivered per cycle... or delivery of small cubes ... even the frequency of delivery can usually be adjusted

Worry about that LEAK first.

Check out the link below...
A whole new head is still available for your refrigerator
but wouldn't it be nice if it were only an inexpensive
PLASTIC coupling or a split PLASTIC feeder tube...??

Ice maker freezes up


Icemaker Fill Tube Freezing Make sure the water supply is greater than 20 psi. If too low, the water valve won't seat properly and it'll "weep." Common causes of low pressure are gunked-up saddle tap valves, kinked water supply line, and using a reverse osmosis filter to supply water to the icemaker. Check to see if the black, flexible portion of the fill tube is wrinkled, twisted, or kinked which can cause ice dams that block the fill tube. It turns out that the manufacturer's have been scratching their heads about this, too, and have concluded that the new fill tube air slit design helps prevent this problem.
