Question:

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!

Does the complete icemaker assembly include the water inlet valve? Or does that need to be changed separately?

Question:

I found the problem for water/icicles in my freezer section. Problem is isolated to the white fill cup that water enters into the ice maker. The fill cup was filled with frozen water. I filled the ice maker with water (manually) and turned the ice maker back on. It dispensed ice but when the water cycle came on water spilled into the freezer because the white fill cup was filled with frozen water. I removed the ice tray waiting for the fill cup to thaw to see if something may be plugged. How do i troubleshoot a clog that may be somewhere in the water distribution from fill cup to ice tray? Thank you

Carl for model number KSCS25INBL01
Answer:

Hi Carl, Thank you for your question. Well there is only the fill cup and then your ice tray. So you would remove your fill cup and run it underneath hot water in your sink to melt the ice that is clogging your fill cup. If it is something in the fill tube that comes up from your water valve, you could try to use a hair dryer to melt any ice that is clogging your fill tube. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

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!

Question:

I purchased and installed the ice maker and it is still not making ice.It has been over 48 hours and it still hasn't filled with water.What might be the cause? Thanks!

Brian for model number ES5PHAXSQ00
Answer:

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!

Question:

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.

Sandford for model number 10656704500
Answer:

Hi Sandford, Thank you for the question. Sounds like you need to replace the Water Inlet Valve. This part releases water from the supply line when it's activated. Hope this helps!

Icemaker stopped making ice months ago

I was meaning to call a repair service when a co-worker told me he fixed his washer machine after watching a you tube video. I went home and watched a video that both diagnosed the problem and told me what to look for to determine which part need replacing. I ordered the replacement icemaker unit and it arrived in time for the weekend. The whole process took about 15 minutes and I had a full bin of ice in about a day. I'm sure this saved me hundreds of dollars. Very easy.

Kenmore icemaker stopped working.

. Fairly simple repair, required Phillips head screwdriver and 1/4" hex head socket driver. Took me about 20 min. to make repair. Saved me about $150-200 if I would have had appliance repairman fix it. Love this site. Has saved me hundreds $ over the years in appliance repair. Have recommended this site to friends and coworkers!

Fill tube was a surprise

Found several videos on YouTube that showed how easy this is to remove and replace. They were all very accurate except they forgot to mention that the water fill tube is in the way when you try to slide the mechanism out of the refrigerator. Don't be afraid to bend the tube for both removal and replacement.

Ice maker had been overfilling and making icicles, then it quit makimg ice completely.

This site parts were almost exact duplicates for the original. No modifications were necessary. I watched the videos...and thank you parts select for having those! I am somewhat a bull in a china shop when it comes to working on items, as I have a heavy construction background, so sometimes I tend to get frustrated with plastic type parts and ending up breaking them. The videos showed exactly how to do it, so that prevented any frustration. After watching the videos, I replaced the ice maker, then replaced the inlet water valve. It was easy. While you have the cardboard back off the rear to the fridge, pull the bottom grill off the front and use a brush and vacuum cleaner or air compressor, if you happen to have one, to clean the coils. It was easy. I saved about $250 doing this myself. THANK YOU ! Regards, Jim

Icemaker stopped making ice after leaking for a while

Replacement icemaker has a higher funnel into which the water flows from the top-mounted water tube. This seems to help eliminate the splashing/leaking problem. It is a bit more difficult to install the icemaker because of this taller funnel, but gently bending the rubber water tube while sliding the assembly in on the tracks worked fine. Be careful with the water tube or you can dislodge it. Otherwise the new icemaker went in quickly and was making ice by the end of the day. Simple install.

That's all it takes!

Ice maker not working, not making ice

Take the safety door off, remove safety panel on the right back corner with small socket wrench. Slide out the ice maker, disconnect the power connection. Turn the old ice maker over, remove the bottom housing which has 4 screws. Mount the old housing on the new ice maker, slide the power cord through the old power strip slot. Connect the power cord to the refrigerator, slide the new ice maker back in place, reconnect the safety bracket on the right back corner and replace the safety door. Shut the door and wait a few hours and BOOM ice!

I had to remove one screw and pulled the icemaker out then removed 3 screws to remove the mounting bracket on the old one and screwed it to the new one, popped it back in and it started up right away and fresh ice again.
