I have a ice maker that quit making ice after I repaired a leak in the plastic feed line. I have verified that I am getting water to the valve but none out. The ice maker will also think it is full and try to rotate ice out but is empty of water. Would this be the valve or something else.
The first thing that you will want to check is to make sure that the fill tube that enters the back of the freezer and flows to the icemaker is not frozen with ice. This could be the reason for the initial issue of the unit tubing leaking. If this checks ok would say that the water valve would be the most likely cause for this issue.
Makes ice ok how ever large block ice forms in the ice pan , does that indicate leaking valve
A block of ice forming in the ice bin will need to check to make sure that the icemaker mold is not damaged and deteriorating. If it is then it would need to be replaced. Also check to make sure that the fill cup is not frozen.
Watched video to replace water valve to allow icemaker to fill with water. Instructions say to flush water through system by water dispenser. My refrigerator does not have a dispenser. Is there an alternate way to flush?
Answer Hello Gary! The video shown for the valve is for a dual valve that has a dispenser in the door. There wouldn't be a need to flush the water line since there isn't a dispenser on your model. If you wanted to flush your water line you would remove the water line running from the icemaker to the valve and run some warm water through it at your kitchen sink. Other than that, there isn't any other way. Hope this helps. Thanks.
Water line installed recently, fridge 7yrs icemaker never used until now. The water will not stop running into ice maker pours out into bin.
Based on the information it sounds like the water valve may be faulty. If the water valve was on the unit and never used then the seals inside the valve most likely have failed and the water valve would need to be replaced.
