How long after replacing water inlet valve does it take to start making ice cubes?

Doug Zerbe
Answer:

Hi Doug, Thank you for your inquiry. Once a water inlet valve or an ice maker is replaced, it takes approximately 24 hours for the ice maker to start making ice. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Question:

I have water from my door front water dispenser, but no water coming into the icemaker assembly. Do i need to replace the water inlet valve or just the icemaker assembly?

carol for model number KSRS25CNBL00
Answer:

Hi Carol, Thank you for your inquiry. There are some parts that you will need to check to see which one is causing the issue. You will need to check the ice maker, the icemaker control assembly, the emitter and receiver boards, the water inlet valve and the water filter. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Question:

My ice maker stopped working and was leaking. I replaced the control assembly which stopped the leaking but it still will not make ice. I manually attempted to fill the ice tray but the water ran out into the freezer immediately as it was filled. Optics seem okay as it blinks twice and pauses when it should and stays on when it should. Please help.

Doreen for model number ED5NHAXNB01
Answer:

Hi Doreen, Thank you for your question. There are only a few parts that could cause that issue. The Ice maker itself, the receiver and emitter boards, and your water inlet valve. It sounds like your ice maker and your boards may be fine. You may want to start with your water inlet valve to see if the ice maker solenoid part of it is not working. Good luck with your repair.

Question:

I have just replaced the icemaker on my Whirlpool fridge (8 cube, purchased from you) but still no luck. Water flows to water tap in door just fine. I have been reading about the emitter and notice that when flapper door is closed i still get flashing red led, not steady. Is this an indication i need a new optics boar? Or should i replace the water valve to try that?

PAUL
Answer:

Hi Paul, Thank you for your inquiry. Based on what you described you will need to check the emitter and receiver boards to see if they are working correctly. If they are not then you will need to replace them. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Brian for model number ES5PHAXSQ00

Hi Brian, Thank you for the question. If the ice maker is not filling with water you might have a defective Water Inlet Valve,PartSelect Number PS3497634. The valve is responsible for releasing water to the ice maker.If water is not being released to the ice maker the valve would need to be replaced. Hope this helps!

Water not coming into ice maker. If I put water into the ice maker by hand it makes the ice and ejects it. The water does not come in automatically.

Icemaker quit making ice

I found a repair guide online to check the resistance of the motor, thermostat, and heater mold. The resistance of the motor and heater mold were both a little off from their recommendations. I had an assumption that it was the motor but I decided to just buy the whole assembly basically for spare parts and I didn't feel like messing around with it any more. The new icemaker was not just a drop in replacement as part select told me because the Icemaker Bearing and Cup Assembly was larger than the original one. Thus, I had to switch it with the old one really quick so instead of a 3 min job it was 20 or so.....

Ice maker quit after 3 years

I removed the two screws holding the cover door, then the three on the uder side of the icemaker assembly. I carefully worked the old unit out; it was a tight fit. The most difficult step involved disconnecting the power assembly. Due to the space, it was hard to get hold of each side of the clip to pull it out. After the old unit was out, just reversed the steps and had the first batch of ice in less than an hour. (I washed the new unit with warm water and soup as it had grease/lubricant on it when taken out of the package).

Ice maker stopped making ice

Replacing my old ice maker with the new ice maker that I bought through PartsSelect was fairly easy. The part came without any directions - so I am glad that I did a little research on PartSelect prior to ordering. I am not the most mechanically coordinated person - but even with my large hands pulling the old ice maker out and putting the new one in was simple.
Only real problem was trying to snap the plug in and making sure that the connection was completely tight. With a side-by-side refrigerator - getting my hands and shoulders (I am a large man) far enough in to apply enough pressure to snap the connectors was a challenge.
Within 30 minutes, my wife heard the ice maker making ice - I was a hero and I had saved about $150 in the labor I was quoted.

Ice maker not working

I replaced this same ice maker a month before, if that long, using a part I found $40 cheaper from another site. Needless to say you get what you pay for, the existing part was not exactly the same as the original and leaked water all over the place. I removed the not so old icemaker by removing the flapper door and removing the harness cover then pulling out the existing icemaker followed by disconnecting the wiring harness. Now with the old icemaker removed I removed the bottom tray/shield from the existing ice maker by removing the three screws from it then attached the tray to the bottom of the new ice maker from PartSelect which did not come with the bottom tray/shield. Finally, I executed the removal process in reverse order to install the new ice maker.

Icemaker worked intermittently then not at all.

I removed two small bolts that secure the flapper that keeps ice from falling out when you open the door, one bolt that holds a cosmetic cover for the wires and slid the icemanker forward. The only difficult part was removing the plug since it was high up, the wires were stiff and there's a release to push that locks the two plugs together. Once it was removed all was installed in the opposire order.
The part I ordered had a slightly taller channel where the water refills so I had to trim it to allow the new icemaker to slide in without bending the fill nozzle. Other than that it was pretty easy.

No ice

I could have bought the "brains" of the ice maker, but decided to replace the whole ice and make sure the problem was fixed. This refrig was let in home I just bought, so do not know its history. The biggest problem was trying to get the ice maker out of the tight spot without applying undo pressure on any part. It finally came out. The next problem was figuring out the catch on plug-in for electrial power. That done, the new ice maker went in without a hitch and is making ice. Glad I decided to order the part and do it myself for the cost of a service charge -- and not service call and part.

Icemaker stopped making ice

Installing the new icemaker is simple. The only problem I had was disconnecting the wiring. Had to use pliers to gently pull the plugs apart. After that, installing the new one was relatively easy. It's a tight fit but can be accomplished with big American hands ;-). After about 15 minutes, it starting making ice again.

Icemaker stopped making ice

First thought it might've been a problem with the inlet valve assembly but it wasn't. Took the factory unit out of the refrigerator and from testing found out one of the wires (black) was busted so splice a new wire in and motor started working but the "arm" would only rotate to a certain point and stop. I then discovered a broken tab inside the motor housing so at the point I just ordered a brand new icemaker unit. When I got it, I just mounted it to the base plate then slid it into the tracks in the refrigerator. The spout where the water comes out was the only tricky part but it is flexible so you just have to push it away and put it back into the tray when the whole unit is inserted. Once inserted, connect the power to the refrigerator, lock the wire cover to the base plate and you should be fine. The new unit started working right away. Whole process took 5 minutes.

Ice maker did not release the frozen cubes reliably.

Unplug refrigerator, remove front panel in front of ice maker. remove screw on back right side, remove small cover. then unplug the electrical connector, and slide out ice maker unit. you will need to remove the plastic bottom panel of ice maker and put it on the new ice maker. then push the electrical connector through the hole. then reconnect the new ice maker electrical plug and slide it back into place, slide the small cover in the back over the electrical connector and replace screw. then replace the front panel door and then plug unit in.

Ice maker quit making ice.

This was relatively easy, but did require patience. First I removed the ice maker door cover, then the bolts, which required a socket and wrench. Next the icemaker wires had to be disconnected, it was a little tough - the connection was on there tight. Once the old unit is out, make sure you remove the motor cover and bracket - you need those on the new one before it goes in. After replacing the bracket and motor cover on the new unit, you connect the wires, pop in the new unit and put all the bolts back in. It was mostly a one person job, but I did need a second set of hands when disconnecting and connecting the wires.
