Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

How long after hooking up ice maker does it take for the water to start running in. we have water in the door water just not in the ice maker?


Answers :

Should have started to fill soon after freezer section reaches between 0\302\260 to 2\302\260 F (-18\302\260 to -17\302\260 C), ice maker fills with water and begins operating. You will have a complete harvest of ice approximately every three hours. The above was in the user manual and only answers when the process begins. There is a thermostat embedded inside the ice maker that tells the water control valve for ice maker to open for approx. 7.5 seconds. Because this model has a freezer below the left fresh food section light switch has an interlock that completes 120VAC to the ice maker once the fresh food section door is closed. Defective fuse, door switch or ice maker will make operation impossible until the problem is located. Please let me know if you need assistance beyond the above here.sea_breeze_27.jpg

GE ice maker crushed ice selector does not work. It does work for cubes and water. Pushing the door button when cubes are selected causes the assembly in the back of freezer that moves a rod to open the door in front to work. However, the assembly in back does not work and is silent when crushed ice is selected. The rod that runs from the back of freezer assembly to front of maker is free and opens and closes cube release door.


Crushed ice makers have a tendency to freeze up the mechanism. So you might want to deinstall your ice maker and let it defrost for a day or two. That would be where I started, but if that didn't fix the problem I would move on to the elect ... Refrigerators

I have a Jenn-Air refrigerator, Model JCD2389DE, and in the last two weeks we have noticed water puddling on the floor in front of the "freezer side" door. We thought maybe the water dispenser "stuck" on but this morning I saw water dripping out. I opened the door and water was running down through the inside of the freezer and coming out through the bottom door seal. The water dispenser and the ice maker appear to be working properly. Please give me your thoughts...

When I try to dispense ice through the door nothing happens. The through-the-door water dispenser works fine and the ice maker makes ice normally. When I press a drink glass against the arm nothing happens regarding dispensing ice. I tried to take the cover off the door dispensing unit but couldn't figure out how to get if off without breaking it - am thinking a relay contact is dirty and needs to be cleaned???

I have water leaking under freezer side of door. I turned the ice maker off, turned off the water to the fridge, cleaned out the ice behind the panels, and put it all back together. Every couple of days I chip the ice off of the bottom of freezer; if I forget I get a puddle of water on my hard wood floor. The plug is in the drain hole. Is the heat element suppose to evaporate everthing when it goes through the defrost cycle? How do I quit having water run all over my floor?

First thing is the water dispencer quits working, all lights still work and the ice dispencer still works. The unit then quits blowing cold air. Does not blow any air at all. You can still hear the unit running. Everything starts thawing out and I have to take the ice collector out or it will run out the freezer door. After about seven hours it all starts working again. Strange because it all starts with the water dispencer stopping, do not know what this would have to do with the compressor not
