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!

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?

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!

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 working

Removed 3 screws but was unable to remove without removing another screw for better access to disconnect wiring harness. Then had to really almost force unit out of the holder. Quoted price was $177. If I ordered by 3:00pm the next day would be shipped just as promtly. The only thing is the next morning when I called the price was $201. because of manufacturers price increases. I was billed $201 plus shipping even though they had the item in stock and had received it at the old price. Don't put off till tomorrow what you can do today.

Stopped making ice

Turn power off to Ice Maker. First I had to remove the Ice Maker Door by removing the two 1/4" screws.
I then removed the 1/4" screw under the Ice Maker on the right hand side that holds the wire cover in place. The cover can be removed by pulling toward the rear at a angle. Now you can slide the Ice Maker forward until it out and only connected by the wire harness which can now be unplugged
The bottom plate on the old Ice Maker will need to be removed and installed on the new one.
Now just work in reverse.

Icemaker is "overfilling" and dripping into the freezer.

I have not completed the repair. I know what needs to be done, but I cannot loosen the screws to remove the icemaker. I'll probably finish the work but calling a repairman to do the installation.

Icemaker not making ice

Ice maker stopped working

I spent quite a bit of time diagnosing the problem. When the ice maker first stopped working, I noticed the fingers that push out ice where pointing straight down and frozen within the cubes. I pulled out the ice maker and let it thaw so I could move the fingers again. The gear that turns the assembly was not in the correct position after several tries, I finally realized that the heater element wasn't working, so when the fingers started to push out the cubes, they would stick and the gear became stripped.

In the end, I replaced the whole unit which wasn't cheap, but was making cubes within an hour of installing the new unit.

Ice maker would quit making ice, off and on

My Ice Maker would stop making ice and the start back. Finally it quit for good and would not work any longer. The repair was as easy as everone indicated and I am sure that I saved more than half of the cost of calling a repairman. Is used a 1/4 socket and a small ratched. Took less than 15 minutes to completely change out the unit. Thanks for being on the internet. Super cost for the complet unit.

Icemaker not working

Our 2nd Ice-maker since 2003. They don't last forever.
Intact, the Ice-maker takes 15 minutes to swap out. Broken, we wait for a replacement. Ordered extra Fill Cup. Not needed. Different Part broken this time! Latest Ice-maker has an extended Fill Cup so as not to Freeze up when refilling. Nice!

When Trays lose their lining or Unit Freezes up, time to replace it! The Ice-maker should last longer. Maybe we expect too much. We like our ice!

Ice maker wouldn't work.

First I removed the ice tray door by lifting and then releasing the hinge. Then I used a nutdriver and socket to remove three recessed screws that are located under the icemaker. I also removed the screw on the underside which holds a plastic flange in place covering the wiring harness. Remove the plastic flange and slide the icemaker out as far as possible, then disconnect the wiring harness from the icemaker. Slide the old unit out and discard. Reverse the procedure to install the new unit. Points of frustration: Disconnecting the wiring harness--it is in there mighty tight! Also, when sliding the new unit into place, clearing the rubber water spout without breaking something is somewahat of a challenge. The unit comes out
easier than it goes back in!

Ice maker not producing ice

First tested the water control valve on back to make sure water was getting to the ice maker. Then, replaced ice maker. Old Ice maker was easy to remove and new one was just as easy to install. Simply slide out the ice maker diconnect at the wire connector, connect new ice maker and slide back in. Turn on ice maker and began producing ice.

Icemaker stopped making ice

We removed the old icemaker, that was the easy part. It only has one bolt holding it in place. The tricky part was installing the new one. The replacement icemaker was a little different than the original, but it fit and works great. Simple connect the wires insert the icemaker, screw the bolt in place and viola. The shipping was so much faster than I had expected. My first order was received broken but they immediately sent a replacement and I got it the next day. It was hassle free and our first time replacing the icemaker went smoothly.
