    I'm planning on re-tiling the floor of my condo kitchen (ripping up 2 layers of old tile and laying down 1/4 HardieBacker or Schluter Ditra XL then Tile. I have always wanted to run a small water line so I can finally use the ice-maker on the fridge, which is on the other side of the galley...

    I have a Samsung RF4287HARS/XAA refrigerator. My problem is when using the water dispenser, after pressing the lever, the water always turns on, but sometimes when releasing the lever, the water does not shut off and water spills everywhere. I tried replacing the Assembly Lever, but that did...

    My 2005 Whirlpool GS6SHEXNL00 fridge's ice maker's ice cubes occasionally have a thin film stuck to them that looks like very thin masking tape (see images). Also, the ice maker works intermittently. It will stop working for days-to-weeks at a time and then begin working normally again...

    Maytag, probably 13 years old. The water dispenser is very slow. It takes 40 seconds to dispense two measured cups of water. I had replaced the filter about 5 months ago, but I put another one in, just in case. Didn't help. In addition, the ice maker has been acting strange. It's not making...

    I have a Maytag fridge (MBF2258DEM) and the ice maker is not working. I replaced the ice maker with a different old ice maker that I had lying around and that wasn't working either. I also installed a new replacement ice maker that I purchased, still not working. (same model that comes with...

    I have a Samsung rs261mdrs side by side refrigerator and freezer. The ice maker is filling with water, then immediately dumping the water. This process repeats every 30 seconds to 1 minute leading to a puddle on the floor. The ice maker continued attempting to dump water even when the water to...

    Worked fine til I shut it off due to a city wide boil order. Turned back on and tripped GFI. Repair guy replaced recirculating pump. Still tripped. GFI replaced still tripped. Now repair guy says I need to change the 20A breaker because it must have messed up the entire electrical circuit...

    So I am moving and was disconnecting my ice maker line. It it a saddle valve that self pierced the line. I applied it to the water line before the shut off valve. I assumed if you tightened the valve stem it would seal off the line. It does not. Now it is leaking 1/2 gallon/day. Any suggestions...

    Hello all - I recently acquired a used Whirlpool Conquest refrigerator (Model GS6SHAXLS02) and I have been running it for a week. I am having issues that the ice maker is not making any ice (no ice is being deposited into the ice compartment). I have looked through the user manual online and...

    We weren't using much ice a few years ago, so we stopped using the ice maker. Decided to start it up again, and the water wouldn't stop flowing. Replaced the solenoid. Didn't fix the problem or change the symptom. Replace the entire ice maker. Did NOT fix the problem or change the symptom...

    Hi everyone I'm knew to this forum. I know, I know saddle valves are bad as they will eventually wear out or leak, however the home I recently purchased already has one installed. I asked the seller if they have had any problems and they said they have had it installed for 15+ years without...

    Hi! I have a Whirlpool Gold Side-by-Side Refrigerator, model GD2SHAXKQ02. The ice-maker is now making trouble instead of ice. :( It looks like the ice-maker eject levers are working (they are spinning slowly), but there is no water coming into the ice-maker unit. The water dispenser on the...

    I had to shut off my water to fix some plumbing. I failed to shut off my icemaker and it no longer operates. Any idea where I should begin to get it up and running again?

    Please help! I just had the RO serviceman out and he told me it was not the RO water pressure going to the fridge (the RO is coming out of the wall behind the fridge at 30psi), so it is a fridge problem. (Can't afford ANOTHER service call right now -- but we really need some ice in AZ!) No...
