Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

I believe water flow valve to ice maker is frozen up and can be thawed with a hair dryer but I'm not sure where exactly to apply the heat.


Answers :

It is going to be difficult for me to give exact directions to the fill tube but you can rely on a few photos and advice that may be better. When the fill tube begins to freeze over to the ice maker it is a sign that your water control valve for that side the ice maker side of the valve is leaking even when off it is slowly allowing water to seep into the tube between cycles of ice production. Defrosting the tube will be a good temporary fix but we need to look also at the source of the problem. I will return in a few moments with some photos. One is of a Amana model that has a split tube type. I don't think yours is the same. But it's a good view from the top and rear of the back of the freezer and back end of the ice maker. Sometimes this problem is cause by water pressure below 20PSI. Rare but possible. But most likely the weeping or seeping water control valve for your ice maker.

In a Hotpoint side-by-side freezer/refridgerator with ice and water dispenser in the freezer door, water freezes in the supply line in the freezer door. I can use a hair dryer to warm up the door for about 30 minutes and let it set for about an hour and it will thaw and and water will flow. It had been doing this about once every 2 - 3 monthis. It froze yesterday and I thawed it, and it froze again today. Is there a more permanent solution?

Well, if the ice maker were working properly, when you poured water, assuming you poured A, enough water, and B, not too much water, you should have seen some cubes drop into the bucket.

My KitchenAid (KSRS25FGWH02)side by side ice maker freezes up in the inlet tube. We have thawed with hair dryer but within hours, it is frozen again. It seems to freeze in the cube-maker compartment, and then it tries to fill water again when the cubes dump, but apparently it is still frozen somewhere, blocking the water. The water then runs into the dump bin, and then also freezes up the water inlet tube. It's a mess!!! Why?
