Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

Ice maker fill tube froze up,tube has no blockage.


Answers :

The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the\015\012water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and\015\012block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to\015\012see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.

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

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

There is a small removable panel at the bottom of the back of the fridge and one large panel covering the rest of the back. When I took all of the screws off, the large panel remained stuck to the fridge. It

I just replaced my icemaker in the SubZero 532. It was very easy to do, BUT ... the metal fill tube that comes out of the back of the fridge was loose...I just laid it back in place like it was in the old ice maker.

Ice Maker Hello, My Ice maker stopped making ice yesterday. Water comes out to fill a glass and the auger and door open when the Ice or crushed Ice buttons are pushed. I suspect a frozen water tube or bad water valve for the icemaker. Are these valves located on the outside rear of the refrig? Also, could the icemaker motor be the problem? How do you check it out?

I have a Kenmore frig/freezer that stopped making ice. First we checked the water intake line, no leaks, no holes, no ice-dams, no mineral build up that can be detected. Then,I turned the freezer off and let it sit for 36 hours, to defrost fully. The unit failed to fill up with water...no ice. Manually filled the ice maker, it froze but would not eject, can you help?
