Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Icemaker continues to run water for several minutes

\015 My icemaker runs water for about 3-5 minutes at a time filling up and freezing in the ice bin and also running out of the ice dispenser and then onto the floor. I too have set the lever to the stop position and water will begin flowing again for the same duration just a short while later.\015

Change your icemaker module. It is getting stuck in the fill position. They are about 50 dollars or so and are held on with 3 screws normally.

I have a Whirlpool model # ET1CHEXVB00 refridgerator. I just (few minutes ago) replaced the ice maker valve because water was no longer getting to the icemaker. Very shortly after I plugged the refridgerator back in and turned on the water, the icemaker went through one cycle and some water (mayber quarter cup) ran down the inside back of the freezer cabinet. Also one time recently (before I decided to replace the icemaker valve), I found several cups of water on the bottom of the freezer cab


Sounds like the fill tube at the ice maker is either out of alignment or has a crack in it.\012The water supply line from the water inlet valve \012enters the rear of the freezer and release ... Whirlpool 21.0 cu. ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator with IceMagic Plus Ice Maker

I Purchased a used fridge (about 8 yrs old ) water never connected as it was a garage, 2nd fridge. I hooked up to water supply, and installed new filter (through the grate, screw in) I have water going through the dispenser, but no water being sent to the icemaker yet...it has been installed and running about 26 Hrs. Should I just continue to wait? I checked water supply valve to icemaker with ohm meter...it reads 181.5 Ohms.

I have a MSD2454GR side-by-side refrigerator, the water value that fills the icemaker runs over and freezes in the bottom of the bin where the auger is located. Is there anyway to regulate the amount of water so there is no overflow. We have already replaced the ice bin and auger once due to the auger freezing up and then breaking the back of the bin. We have had the ice maker fixed several times, the refrig/freezer works great except for the icemaker problem

Our LG LRSPC244W refrigerator has a water/ice dispenser on the door. It worked great for years, but then it suddenly stopped dispensing water. It had the sound of running water, but nothing came out. I later saw that the water was going onto the floor under the refrigerator. The icemaker was fine, and continued to make new ice. As long as we didn't try to dispense water, there were no more puddles on the floor.

I have a kitchen aide side by side. Icemaker not working. Purchased new icemaker (Whirlpool 4322658A) and new optics. Old optics were bad, old icemaker mold heater burned out. New optics check out fine. Tried to run harvest cycle. Runs through cycle but won't fill with water. Water solenoid checks out fine (I'm an elect engr and just jumpered it it to test). The water line is not frozen. Its acting like the icemaker is not sending power to the fill solenoid. Any ideas?

Fan oscillation I have a Hotpoint HSM25GFRA SA side-by-side. The recirc fan in the freezer starts to oscilate after it has been running several minutes. Temp in both freezer and fridge seem normal. The unit is about 4 years old. Recently I had to defrost the freezer due to icemaker overflowing and ice building up near the fan. The ice did not stop the fan, but started to "buzz" as the ice contacted the fan blades. I don't remember this oscillation before. Is the fan damaged? Pete


Probably damaged the fan blade. If plastic, it could be missing a blade or maybe cracked. If metal, probably bent. I would ttry to get an eyeball on it while it''s running to see just what's up. Fan motors are usually pretty durable and last quite ... Hotpoint HSM25GFRSA

Water dispenser will not work when the icemaker has ice made in bucket, the motor will run but no water, later the water will run without warning and overflow door reservoir. The water dispenser works perfect if the icemaker has been disabled. This is a model SXD26VW Amana side by side refrigerator.

The temperature for the top portion is reading 38 degrees, however we often find vegetables partially frozen in the produce drawer. The icemaker continues to function but the filtered water spigot will not deliver water. We have removed the filter and blocked of the filter with the blue blocking piece and we still get no filtered water, yet the icemaker continues to function.


Turn your unit up to 40 degrees, by the time the upper portion hits 38 degrees the bottom is close to 6 degrees colder than the upper, by physics cold air is heavier and falls, plus w/o a fan down there it will freeze quicker,just like a cold night o ... Refrigerators

I have a Samsung SR-S2028CSS side by side Fridge Freezer with an icemaker water dispenser. The freezer is run at -23 degrees and the fridge at 2 degrees. Recently the ice, having been made in the icemaker, melts a little and then freezes into a solid block. Water also drips off the ice, running down the front of the freezer door. Any ideas as to what is wrong? Thank you, John


Are you sure about these temps C or F? At 2 deg on either scale, food would freeze! And -23 is unreachable. Water running down the door sounds like a seal leak, check by putting a dollar bill between the seal and the frame. It should NOT pul ... Refrigerators

My ge monogram ice maker (modle # WR30X10012) leakes water from the front of the icemaker, causing iceicles to form in front of the ice tray. I took the icemaker out and filled it with 3/4 cup of water , this looked to be a normal load (about a 1/8 inch from the top of the ice tray). It started leaking and stoped leaking after apx 30 minutes, at whitch time it lost about 1.2 ounces of water. The water level decreased to about 3/16 to 1/4 inch from the top of the ice tray. No more water leaked o
