\015\012About 1/3 of the way down the page there is this statement with picture:
\015\012FILL ADJUSTMENT SCREW
\015\0121 full turn will affect fill by 40cc. 1/2 turn varies the fill by 20cc.Some Ice Makers May have knobTurning the knob or screw clockwise decreases fill; counter-clockwise increases the fill amount.Turing Adjustment Screw More than 1 full turn could damage module.

\015\012If you have 2 times replaced the water valve and you still tend to think the water valve is the problem again it may be time to use an IN-LINE water filter as you just may be getting particulate introduced into the ice maker water valve from the house connection. Particulate in the ice maker water valve seat causes them to bypass water when they are not supposed to.
\015\012
\015\012I tend to think your in the right track and thinking the problem just may not be the water valve.

\015\012Use the link to troubleshoot. Just remember though that each time you cycle the ice maker using the jumper as instructed it will fill with water.
\015\012
\015\012What I would to is pull the plastic hose in the back and cycle the icemaker BEFORE you make any adjustments catching the fill water in a measuring cup behind the unit. Note volume...
\015\012
\015\012Make adjustment... Note volume difference. You should not have to make much more than a 20cc adjustment.

Hi, I he an LG side-by-side fridge which ice maker. I have had problems recently with the water dispenser not working anymore. I have replaced the three way valve and now it works great but the ice maker doesn't work at all. Could it be the connections at the valve wrong? Thanks for your help. Takshimaya


Hi,\015\012\015\012Yes you are right. It tends to be the problem of the valve. Connection is not proper it is not allowing water to ice maker. The valve can be checked with a \015\012volt/ohm meter if you. Have access to one and are ... LG LRSC-26922 Side by Side Refrigerator

I have a Kenmore side by side model #106.50517001. It started defrosting and not coming back on at odd times, I thought that it was probably the defrost timer, you could unplug the fridge, plug it back in and it would start working but when you turned the timer screw, it would go off then not come back on. I replaced the timer and it still wasn't working. Out of frustration I slapped the control panel cover and it came on. What else inside there do I need to replace?

I have had the Adaptive Defrost Control on my Jenn Air fridge replaced 3 times in the last 2 months, and it appears to be out again. Mdl JCD2389GES. This time the freezer side is frosted up in back but otherwise not cold. The fridge is not cold at all. I asked the last repairman if something else could be killing these circuit boards and he said no. He is due to come out again tomorrow and replace it again. What else could be wrong? I really cannot have this problem again!

Whirlpool ED2FHAXSB It makes ice but doesn't dispense ice. Every other part of the fridge works fine. Lights light, water dispenser works OK, the temp is OK, I don't see any fuses or anything else that might be wrong. Also, cleaning the fins underneath is strange. They seem to run side to side rather than back to front. There is little access to clean this part of the fridge. How do I effectively clean these fins?

I have replaced the water valve twice on my frigidaire side by side. THe first time the water worked for a while to the water dispenser and ice dispenser, then it stopped again. The expert at fixya said I probably needed to do it again (after only 4 months). We did. No improvement this time. The filter is new, too. I replace that way too often also. Now what?


When you replaced the valve did you change the solenoid which controls the valve assembly? If not then the solenoid needs to be checked whether its working properly (opens & closes the water valve). The coils could have lost its electromagnetic c ... Frigidaire FRS26R4A Side by Side Refrigerator

Our Whirlpool side by side also makes a thumping sound. I have had repair people at the house 5 times with only one finding a possible solution and that solution was to reposition a dryer by the fill valve that was replaced just before the noise started. Could the dryer be bad and need to be replace? Both the freeze and refrigerator work fine.

I bought a GE GSS20IEPH Side by Side Refrigerator in 2005, every 2 years almost to the date I have had to replace the heating element that prevents the back of the freezer from frossing over and stop cooling.

Have a ge profile side by side- getting lots of frost build up where the ice comes out of the ice bin/where it gets crushed for crushed ice. The flap is opening/closing just fine. The ice make is turned off right now, and it also looks like water is going down the shute and freezing there. We do see on the 'ceiling' of the freezer towards the frost a seal that is drooped a little bit. Could this be causing the problem?? Or something else. Everything else seems to be working fine.


It is possible that the flap is not sealing correctly, you may have to reach up and feel around the seal. ... GE Profile 26.6 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Dispenser TFX27PRBWW

Our LG fridge had an issue where the water supply was cut off, so the ice cube maker stopped working as well as the water dispenser in the front. The water valve was replaced, and the ice maker started working, but not the water dispenser. It was at this point that the motherboard was replaced(located at the top), and this did not fix the issue. Any ideas as to what else could be the problem?

I own a Whirlpool side-by-side mode # GD5PHAXKQ00. The ice maker quit working so called a repair person. He said we needed new circuit boards. We ordered on-line and replaced them. We are still not getting any ice. Was told possibly it was the solenoid valve. Checked that and is working fine. We are getting water out of the water dispenser on the door but no water seems to go into the ice maker. Getting frustrated, what else can it be. The hose is not frozen because we unhooked that and

I have a KitchenAid KSCS251 side-by-side. The freezer side has seemed to quit working. Can't get it to go below 35 degrees. I shut off the ice-maker and all my food is slowly defrosting.

I have a GE side by side refrigerator GSS22JEMB BB. The defroster heater was replaced. How do I know if the defroster is working properly. Can I manually manually make the fridge go into defrost mode? Also when I open the door, is the motor on the freezer side suppose to stop running? There is a valve on the top of the fridge, Is there suppose to be a stream of cold air comming out? It is currently having very little flow.


To go into defrost manually : Remove the 10"X13" panel from the back of the fridge . You will see a plug with 3 larger wires going to it . Unplug this plug ( UNPLUG THE REFRIGERATOR FIRST ) . The blue receptical will look like this wire#1,wire#2, spa ... GE (PSS26MSRSS) Side by Side Refrigerator

Icemaker is not working, There is not any water getting to the icemaker. Maytag has sent out there techs 5 diffirent times but I guess the only thing they know how to do is replace the icemaker itself. After 4 new icemakers it still doesnt work. Icemaker has not worked since I bought the refrigerater and now they say there is not anything else they can do for me. I have done a little diagnosing myself and have come to the conclusion that possibly the valve that splits the water to the icemaker a

Just replaced the water filter on our side by side Kenmore 53569202, thinking that may have caused our ice maker to quit working. when opening the door to the freezer, there is a red light blinking twice on the Ice Maker Control and have not heard water go into the tray. could we have a frozen water line? if yes, how do we handle? also noticing an almost moaning sound from the unit every once in a while

I have a Frigidaire PLHS267ZCB4 Side by Side fridge. The whole fridge was only getting cold at the bottom but the entire upper section is only 60 degrees.

#GLHS35E4SB6 Frigidaire side by side. evaporator motor area becomes extremely noisy and eventually shuts off. The fan could be floating on the motor shaft and engaging the shroud.

A repair man has replaced both the motor and the fan twice and within a couple of weeks the problem reoccurs. The unit is only 1 1/2 yea

We have an Amana ASD2624HES side by side and we've just hooked up the water/ice system. Found out that the dual valve thing underneath was busted so replaced that. Put a new filter in as well. The water tastes great and works well, but the ice maker isn't making any ice! Is there a reset button somewhere? Or is there anything else we should try?
