I have a refrigerator with a freezer at the bottom. What could cause a thick layer of ice to form at the bottom of the freezer? Every week I take everything out of the freezer in order to get an ice sheet that forms at the bottom floor. Thanks
Answer Hello Telly,
This is an indication of either a stopped up defrost drain or a problem with the icemaker or water inlet valve. If your model number is actually MFI2665XEM7, you should check for lumps of ice in the ice bin. If none is there, the rear wall will need to be removed and the defrost drain thawed with a hair dryer. The drain should then be chased with a piece of weed eater line. Then put in one tablespoon of white vinegar to prevent algae formation. If there is lumps of ice in the ice bin you will need to verify good water pressure to the water valve. If this is good, the water valve is the first suspect but either the icemaker or the water valve can cause this issue.
My ice maker will only work if I dump a glass of water in it. It will then make a batch of ice and that's it until you add a another glass of water? What would it be?
Answer Hello Phil,
Sounds like the water valve 12001414 has failed. If this is the case the fill tube to the icemaker will normally be frozen up. If it is, thaw it out with a hair dryer. It is also possible that the icemaker D7824706Q could have a burned set of contacts and is not sending the voltage to the water valve but this is less likely.
