Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

My mom just reconnected her ice maker and water dispencer. The water when we turned the water back on, it continues to flow through the ice maker not catrching and filling or whatever its supposed to do. Is there a solution to this problem?


Answers :

Yes .. that is a stuck fill valve ... there are two valves located at the bottom behind the refrigerator .. these are solonoid operated valves so they have some wires connected .. the water first comes in to the water filter in the refrigerator, then a hose goes down to the valve assembly .. you may have to take off a cardboard panel to see them ... you can try tapping on the valve while turning the icemaker on and off .. (to see of you can get it to click) ... if you cant free it then you have to replace the valve assembly ..

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

I cleaned my GE Momogram Ice Maker with the Nickel Safe Ice Machine Cleaner by Nu-Calgon and then lightly sprayed the interior with a very mild water/bleach solution to reach the mildow that I couldn't reach. After I wiped off the water/bleach and/or let it dry, I restarted the Ice Maker. The machine now is not making ice. It's running - the water reservoir fills with water, the grid that cuts the ice is warm, the metal sheet that the water usually goes down to freeze is icy cold, the engine


You have a water pump problem. The pump that circulates the water while the ice is being made is not running. If it ran before the cleaning process and did not run after there is a possibility that a chunk of calcium became lodged in the pump impelle ... GE Refrigerators

Ice maker The ice maker is not filling the ice tray with water in order to form ice. The water dispenser is dispensing water normally however. Any suggestions or solutions to my problem? Thanks


It is possible that the water valve behind the refrigerator is either defective or the wire connection is loose.  Also check the fill tube where the water comes in and see if there is ice blocking the fill tube.  Since it's under warr ... LG LRSC-26922 Side by Side Refrigerator

New (3 days old) Kenmore Elite refrigerator model 795.7103 with ice maker. Water supply line to the ice maker immediately froze up so won't fill tray to make ice. Serviceman came out and melted ice blockage in line which allowed flow (injected warm water into line). He told us to keep fridge temp at 38 or higher. With setting at 39 the line froze again. Do we keep messing with this - is there a solution that doesn't involve repeatedly thawing out the water line? Or do we tell them to take


First of all, your freezer should be much lower than 38 degrees. For the ice maker to even work proplerly it has to be below 10 F. Some models have a heater that goes around the fill tube to keep that from happening, but in my opinion, if its only th ... Refrigerators

My freezer will not go through the harvest cycle. The ice tray fills with water, just will not harvest. I have continuity through what I assume is the temp sensor when cold, but where is that supposed to send voltage to, and what does the small set of contacts do when you push up on the bin handle telling it not to make any more ice. I can see it's supposed to send voltage somewhere, but where. I have voltage through my plugs, just can't get the ice maker to harvest.

Hi there, We are having problems with our ice maker on our GE Profile Model # SRD2054W, purchased October 1995. I know it's old, but it has been a good appliance until now. The ice maker fills but the water splashes over the tray and doesn't appear to rotate and fall into bucket. The water supply line to the ice maker came apart where it connects to the back of the ice maker. We reconnected line and can still get water from the water dispenser, but no ice. We think the line could be frozen.


What you think is probably correct. Water valves can seep water and freeze the fill tube. Remove the ice maker and the fill tube remove ice from the fill tube and replace the water valve. ... GE Profile 23.1 Cu. Ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with Thru-the-Door Ice and Water - High-Gloss White

My ice maker will make ice and dispense it from the tray into the hopper...but only if I manually pour water into the tray for the making of the ice cubes.

Just no water flow to the ice tray.

We've had this LG LRFC-21755 fridge for a little more than three years, and the ice make stopped working about a year ago. Water fills the ice maker, and the cubes get made, but sometimes the cubes won't get ejected. Then, the next time the water comes into the ice maker, it runs right down into the tray. I did remove the whole ice maker once, letting the cubes thaw and fall out. The problem started again, though, as soon as I put it back in. I'm comfortable replacing the ice maker, if
