Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Shut water off did not shut off ice maker- now ice maker no longer making ice.


Answers :

Good day,
\015\012Assuming the water has been turned back on for a while, and your sure it's getting to the valve on the rear, follow this guide.
\015\012It should cover your problem. The freezer must be cold enough. 10 degrees or colder.
\015\012
\015\012First 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.
\015\012P.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 Maytag RSW22A side by side Refer/Freezer stopped making ice. The water still works, the tines still turn every hour or so as if there were cubes there but the tray no longer fills up with water. Just prior to this happening, we had to shut off the water to the house for a day for some repairs. Is there some kind of priming I have to do to get the water flowing into the ice maker again? Could a valve to the icemaker be bad even though the valve to the water dispenser still works? Thanks.

The automatic ice maker quit working, but first the water control valve hung up open [the refill cycle did not end]. Fortunately, I was nearby and when I looked into the ice maker I saw a slow flow of water going into the ice bucker so I raised the ice maker shutoff arm, and shut off the water valve at the wall. I also unplugged the fridge and then plugged it back in, then opened the water valve and lowered the ice maker shutoff arm to restart the ice maker. Nothing happened. I left the ice make

Whirlpool icemagic Hi there. I had filter problems so I shut off the water to the Icemaker. We pulled the bar up, so it wouldn't try to make ice cubes. It was down for about 6 months (?) Problem w/ filter resolved, turned the water back on and now water pours out of the tube into the ice maker and overflows onto freezer bottom. I suspect the tube to the ice maker may have been jarred out of place, but I don't see where the tube attaches to the ice maker. It seems to just lay on the gear. Do you

Amana ice-maker The ice-maker is no longer making ice. I pulled out the fridge and the tube that leads to the ice maker was disconnected. (I'm wondering why this has happened - what would cause it to pop off?) I reattached the tube and now the water is not getting through - there seems to be a blockage. I tried unplugging the fridge for 2 hours - then put the hair dryer to the area (in case there was ice blocking the tube?) but to no avail - the water still isn't getting through. I don't know ho

Ice maker isn't making the ice, but the water supply is working to make water? does not seem like the water is coming into the ice chamber it was frozen at the end of the spicet, so I took everything out of freezer and shut it off to defrost it, also using my steam cleaner.

I have a Whirlpool Gold side by side Model GD5SHAXNS00. Two days ago after the ice cubes emptied into the cube holder on door, the water did not shut off, and ran for about 30-45 seconds until I shut off the icemaker.

The Ice Maker on my GESL25JFXLB is frozen over at the opening to the shoot. The water dispenser works fine, except that when you push the paddle back to get water, you have to pull it back towards you manually to shut it off. The ice maker makes ice just fine. The ice just cant get through the shoot because of the block of ice that builds there (typically within 3 days). It gets so iced up its hard to pull open at times. I break it apart and it just keeps coming back. What can I do?

Ice maker no longer making ice. A few weeks ago the water that was supposed to fill just the ice tray, didn't turn off, overflowed the ice tray and proceeded to fill the ice basket underneath. Since then there has been no water pumped into the ice tray, although the arms continue to operate. I checked the feed and water is flowing to the refrigerator. We've also turned down the temp thinking it may be frozen, no luck.


Sounds like the water flowed enough to freeze the end of the fill tube shut. Best to prepare to replace the dual water control valve on the rear and near floor of refrigerator. If it was leaking and you should thaw the tube you need to t ... Maytag MBB1954G Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
