Refrigerator Water Filters
The ice making function of the refrigerator is very important
The ice making function of the refrigerator is very important. If the ice maker cannot make ice, it will greatly affect the working efficiency of the refrigerator. Here are some common ice machine problems and some troubleshooting techniques for ice machines.

Common ice machine problems are: water line failure or setting, water inlet valve problem, filter clogging and thermostat setting too low.

How to repair a refrigerator without ice

1. The control arm is not in place

Repair: Sometimes the control arm may be hit or fall off, please make sure it is in the correct position.

2. Ice water filter

Repair: Does your refrigerator need a puresource 3 water filter? If your refrigerator suddenly stops making ice, it may be that the refrigerator's water filter is clogged. A dirty filter will reduce the amount of water entering the ice machine, so make sure to replace the whirlpool 4396841 filter at least twice a year.

3. Ice maker assembly and replacement of ice maker

Repair: Once you have ruled out the problems with the water inlet valve, water valve and water filter, it is time to check your actual ice machine for problems. Most ice machines use heat to cause the cubes to fall into the tray. It is recommended that you hire a professional for voltage testing. If you confirm that the refrigerator has electricity but still cannot make ice, it may be time to replace the ice maker with a new one.

4. The ice machine is frozen

Fix: Sometimes the refrigerator thermostat may be set too low, which can cause the water to freeze before entering the ice mold. Make sure your thermostat is set close to the recommended temperature of the refrigerator.

5. Water injection pipe

Repair: First, check the ice mold of the ice maker. If you do not see any ice cubes or only small ice cubes, please check the water injection system for water. The filling system should be the filling cup and tube on the back of the ice maker. If these parts freeze, check whether the filling pipe is blocked.

Most likely, these failures can be solved by unplugging the refrigerator, removing the outlet pipe between the water inlet valve and the ice maker, and flushing or replacing it with a new one.

6. Water inlet valve

Repair: The refrigerator is supplied with water from the main power source of the house. If the water inlet valve is blocked, this may be the reason why your refrigerator is not making ice. Close the water supply valve at the back of the refrigerator and check for debris in the input pipe.

If the input pipe is clean, please check whether the inlet valve is also clean and unobstructed. If the water injection pipe of the ice maker freezes, it may mean that there is a problem with the water pressure in your home.

Before replacing the inlet valve, check the electrical function of the inlet valve. To do this, close the water inlet valve, turn off the water supply, and unplug the refrigerator. Remove the rear panel of the refrigerator and trace the water pipe from the ice maker to the valve.

Locate the solenoid valve inlet that is responsible for opening the water flow. Test the solenoid with a dial indicator to test continuity. The electricity generated by the solenoid valve comes from the ice machine control device.

After installing the Kenmore 9081, how long does it take for the ice maker to make ice?

It may take 6 to 12 hours to start producing ice. It is recommended that you discard the first 3 batches of ice to ensure the purest ice.
