Default too much water for ice-maker
Model Number: ED22DQXAB00   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: More than 10 years

Too much water in icemaker.
What determines the water level in icemaker? I have water coming out of the ice despenser after each cycle and the bottom of bucket is frozen solid, I won't even try to use the auger, it is in solid ice. I've turned the valve down on water line so flow amount is restricted to minimum and it still fills the ice maker tray over. Is there a water level sensor??
Thanks, Vern

Vern,

Remove the ice maker front cover. On the right side of the head you'll see the water level adjustment screw. Turn it CW for 1/2 turn and check the water level. You can do it one more time if needed. Further adjustment could damage the module.

Gene.

Default soo much water for icemaker

Thanks, well I suppose my icemaker may be kaput. I did as you said, I turned the little adjustment on the right side a half turn clockwise and now it is worse, it lets about a half pint of water run each cycle, way too much water. Thanks for the help, Vern.

Locate the water inlet valve on the back of the refrigerator. The solenoid where the 1/4" tube is connected to is for the ice maker. Disconnect the wires from the solenoid and check for 120VAC between them while the ice maker calls for water.

If the power is "ON" for more than 7 seconds, replace the ice maker.

If there is nothing wrong with the power, but water is still coming into the ice maker, replace the water inlet valve.

- The water inlet valve Part number: AP3085178

Part number: AP3085178



- The ice maker Part number: AP2984633

Part number: AP2984633

Ok, Gene. I can do that, 7 seconds. Thanks.
I looked at all that, but I didn't know the time required.
I'm sure the selenoid is ok, it doesn't let water through
either side -unless the icemaker asks
for it or the drinking water valve is pressed.
Thanks again, Vern.

Default too much water in icemaker

Gene, thanks. My icemaker was kaput, as you said, turning the little timing device didn't make any difference, it appears that even the heat element didn't cycle on, the ice wouldn't turn loose from the trays, causing the water to overflow over the ice.
A new icemaker and also the inlet valve was istalled and now I have peace and harmony in the house. (And ice without water on the floor and ice forming on the ice cream cartons on the shelves below) The parts aren't cheap, but we had a Christmas club account to draw from. Thanks, Vern.

You are welcome, Vern.

I'm glad you were able to fix it.

Happy Holidays!
