Having problems with your Refrigerators ?

ICE MAKER WAS TURNED OFF FOR THREE MONTHS AND NOW WON'T FILL WITH WATER AFTER TURNED BACK ON


Answers :

I'm not sure which ice maker you have but if it is one with the electronic module. You will need to take the wire that turns the ice maker off when the bin is full and flip it up and down 3 or 4 time. This will take the ice maker out of lock out.

My ice maker flooded the refrigerator after the tray filled with ice and I neglected to empty it for a few days. After emptying my freezer and thawing everything it seemed to work okay.

We have an Amana AFI2538AEW we have had two techs. out already and we have replaced the fill valve. But still we have no ice. What happened is it started leaking water out of the fill cup in the ice maker and through the ice despencer. It kept making ice but at a slow rate and that is when we turned the maker off. The first tech took the ice maker out and couldn't put it back in and the second put it back and said it was the fill valve and my husband and I replaced it ourselves. Unfortunat

My refrigerator is leaking water. I pulled the frig out and there was water dripping off of the electrical wires that go up in the back of the frig. It was doing it when the ice maker was being filled with water. I turned the ice maker off and then it happened again and it looks like water is coming out of the door where the hose goes into the bottom of it. I have not been able to look into that any more. It looks like this is 2 different leaks. The valves on the back used to leak but I fo

Whirlpool icemagic Hi there. I had filter problems so I shut off the water to the Icemaker. We pulled the bar up, so it wouldn't try to make ice cubes. It was down for about 6 months (?) Problem w/ filter resolved, turned the water back on and now water pours out of the tube into the ice maker and overflows onto freezer bottom. I suspect the tube to the ice maker may have been jarred out of place, but I don't see where the tube attaches to the ice maker. It seems to just lay on the gear. Do you

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

I turned my water off when we left town for a month. After turning my water back on the ice maker has stopped working. Our refrigerator is a Kitchen-aid superba model and is approximately 4 - 5 years old. We have our refrigerator water connected to a RO water system under the kitchen sink.


The issue is likely that the icemaker fill tube is frozen due to poor water pressure. You can use a turkey baster to thaw this tube which fills the icemaker. Make sure you use plenty of hot water because they often freeze back several inches! ... KitchenAid KSCS25FKSS Side by Side Refrigerator

I have a GE side by side fridge (psc23mgpcww). My ice maker wont make ice. Temp is OK. Water is coming out of dispenser and I even used a blow dryer to defrost any ice that maybe in spout that leads into the mold. I also added 4oz of water into mold and shut switch to ice maker off for 15sec and turned back on and then pressed paddle 3 times and saw rake rotate but next morning still no other ice cubes formed.

There seems to be a leak problem in the freezer area. what started as constant running fill on the ice maker is now looking like a leak in the baclk wall above the freezer coil, Is there a vlave or other part prone to leaking there?

KSBS 25IN kitchenaid. 5 yrs old. A few months ago I woke up to water on the floor under the refrigerator. It was enough to cause some warping in our hardwood floor. I cleaned up, shut off water supply to the fridge until I could spend some time with it. Last week I turned the water supply back on. No leaks. The door water worked fine but now no water is flowing to the ice maker. Any suggestions?

Whirlpool ET1CHMXKQ03 Our refrigerator is leaking water from the top. We have unhooked the ice maker and turned it off (I think) but it is still leaking. It is leaking so bad that the bottom bins are filling up with water and the back of the shelves have water on them. It looks like water is coming from the top down to the bottom because you can see water dripping from that little box that is on the ceiling of the bottom of the fridge. Any help would be great!

I have a standard Freezer-top, Frig-bottom single door Kitchenaid (Model # KTRA22ELSS01) that has been dripping water from the water dispenser for a few months now. It is slow, but enough to fill a door tray in a day or so. Ice maker seems fine, no sign of leakage. With cover off, when I run water, air bubbles flow back up into tubing, drops of water slowly form on spout and drip. What part (and part #) do I need to order?

I have a Whirlpool GD5SHAXLQ02 side by side refrigerator which is 7 1/2 years old. I replaced a kitchen faucet and in doing so, needed to shut off the water supply to the refrigerator. When turning the water back on to the unit, the ice maker suddenly stopped working. It wouldn't fill with water. First, I checked for a frozen inlet tube in the freezer which seemed fine. Next, I tested the continuity on both sides of the inlet valve. I've never used a multimeter before and am not sure if I used i

My ice maker (M1) wont make ice. I have disconnectted the line from the valve to the fill tray and then plugged the icemaker back in and raised the arm to activate the icemaker. I put a bowl under the fill valve where the line to the tray goes and waited for 30 minutes. There was no water.....I did all of this to eliminate any problems in the fill line and/or icemaker itself. Now either the icemaker isnt "calling" for the ice to activate the valve OR the valve isnt working....Does this sound c
