    I have a simular problem however my fridge has not been used in 7 years. Before storage everything worked good. I too ran a new water line and have water to the fridge but unable to get any water or ice. I also installed a new filter and continue to cycle the door control for water and ice in hopes of purging the air out. Still no water or ice. The fridge was only used for about 2 years before storage. Greatful for all or any guidance on how to proceed. The "Man Cave" must having working fridge for football season! Thanks.

SOURCE: I have an older fridge with the ice maker in the

you have to determine if its the icemaker mold that has a crack and therefore leaks, or if you water valve solenoid is not closing compeletly at the end of the cycle. to check this, turn the water supply off to the refrigerator, then lift the arm up to turn the icemaker off. wait 3-6 hours, in case it JUST cycled, turn the icemaker back on, and it should dump one last set of ice cubes. slowly pour 4-8 oz of water into the icemaker with a measuring cup. do you see that same drip? if you do, replace your icemaker, if you dont, replace your water valve.

Ice maker will not quit making ice

Repairing this is pretty easy once you know how ice makers work. Just remember there are thousands of different models of refrigerators and it will always be a good idea to write your model number and brand name somewhere because that will be the first thing the repair parts vendor will ask for. On refrigerators most times will be around the inside door frame of the fresh food compartment. Then you will have the Kenmore Brand model numbers that look like this 790.99012 Most of that information can be found on this page Locating the Number's enough about that part an ice maker unfortunately has about a five year life span and most whirlpool brand have repair parts but by the time you add the parts and time you could have already bought a new ice maker. This of course is not to say your ice maker is at fault here. If you have no ice or shrinking ice in the ice slots of your refrigerator fill with tap water and make sure ice maker is turned on. Once the water in the ice maker (if ice maker is good) freezes it should drop into ice bin. If water does not refill thist points to the dual water control valve located on back and near floor. Below is a video that I find very informing weather you have a Whirlpool or another brand. If video does not appear below then click here=> Broken Ice Make Repairs Most people say if they have water in fountain that they should also have ice but the fact is the dual water control is called that because one side fill the ice maker while the other controls the water dispenser. If to have a multi-meter and would like to test please let me know. With wiring disconnected from the water control valves you have a coil that acts as a magnet to pull a metal plunger open when ice maker calls for water and the coil for the dispenser side both should read from 150 to 250 ohms. at the terminals coming out of them. If not then they should be replace with a complete new water control valve. If you have questions or need more answers please let me know, Thank you Sea Breeze.

My maytag is model MFD2560HES serial number

does the water dispenser work OK ? if yes , a try this : pour 3/4 of a cup of water into the ice maker, right into where the ejection fingers are. also , take all of the ice out of the ice bin. then , give the freezer time to freeze the water you have poured into the ice maker and see if the ice maker ejects the ice into the bin. if it does, it might reset itself and refill the unit and work normally.

I bought my pc tower used from a co-worker, and he no longer has the installation disk and doesn;t remember what e-mail he used to register it. I pulled the Pinnacle card from the board and got a 19...

The number that the install program needs is the software serial numberthat was on the jacket of the install disk. The drivers for the card should load without a serial number, but the main application needs it. Check with Pinnacle support, but I suspect you will need to purchase a new copy of the software.

Sub Zero not making ice

if this happened when you shut down the purifier system and that feeds the fridge then yes most likely the problem or when it was shut down and then turned on again sediment could have been pushed into valve on fridge,find the shut off either under the sink or in basement,loosen the nut on water line just enough to see if any water leaks out,if not no water going to fridge,if there's water there you either have a bad water valve or a bad ice maker,if that's an older subby you can use a whirlpool ice maker instead of sub zero ice maker,i think they want like 400 bucks for a sub zero ice maker,also if you had to get in there with a hair dryer before most likely the fill tube was frozen and this usually happens from a bad water valve,water leaks through the valve slowly when it's off and it will freeze in the tube,if that ice maker is over 7 years you might want to change out the valve and ice maker because the mold rots out,you can look at it,if you see any peeling inside the mold change it out,also if that has a whirlpool ice maker in it pop off the white cover,get a jumper wire and stick it in the V and L that will send power to the water valve and the ice maker should fill,if not the valve is bad,if no water is going to it the valve will buzz,if water fills stick the jumper into the T and H this will cycle the ice maker but you have to hold the switches in in the back left side if this is a bottom mount freezer or like i said before just replace the ice maker and the valve,you can google clarke and get the phone number,call them and give them the model and serial numbers and they'll send the parts to you,if that's an older bottom mount you can use the whirlpool ice maker,go here and you can see it part wpw10190965
you'll find the model and serial numbers on the top hinge on the fridge door if it's a bottom mount,if it's a side by side open the freezer door and look at top hinge and numbers will be there.hope this helps and good luck.

I have water to the water line and it comes out the water dispenser, but I get no Ice from the maker and it doesn't make any ice at all. this is a hot point refrigerator freezer with the ice maker on the...

Hi: No.1 it takes 24 to 72 hours for the machine to make ice. No. 2, If the freezer is not at zero degrees it will not make ice. I'm not talking frozen but zero F. Ice cream will be rock hard. These icemakers are thermally proctected as not to dump unfrozen ice in the tray. I hope this helps, Jeff

Water inlet ot ice maker leaks in to frezzer

Change the Water enter dump valve for the ice maker. It is leaking. It will not shut off & will cause this problem. It`s infrequently located in the rear of refrigerator ussualy where water line enters the electrically back of refrigerator. In essence the valve and electric head can be bought at any Appliance Parts store. It`s not a high cost part and be bought easily for it is mostly a standard part to buy. erroneously bring the model number and serial number and they can get the right one to replace it with.
