Is your refrigerator ice maker overflowing? First, clarify exactly what you mean. Does it mean that the ice cube is filled with ice and the ice maker continues to produce ice? In this situation, is the ice is normal size Or does it mean that the water overflows when it fills the ice tray and now there is a large chunk or a layer of ice inside your freezer? All these problems are easy to solve and you do not require much experience in refrigerator repairs to overcome the problem.

The ice maker in your refrigerator is easy to use, but the process behind this is a bit more complicated. First, the ice maker receives the water through a small supply line from the house, carrying the water through a filling valve controlled by a thermostat. The valve sends the water through a tube to the ice mold, then the water freezes and the thermostat turns off. In most of the models, a small heater heats the cubes enough to release the ice, at which point the ice is ejected into the container, and it all starts over. There are some problems that can happen causing your ice maker to continue producing ice until the tray overflows, and here we can detect the problem and repair them. Call Haier Refrigerator Repair Service Center and get the repair services at your doorstep on the same day.

Refrigerator Ice Maker Overflowing

Water Inlet Valve:

The water inlet valve requires a minimum of 20 psi to close properly. If the water pressure is too low, the valve may not close completely once the power is cut off. As a result, the valve will leak water in the ice maker and cause it to overflow. Check the water pressure to determine if it 20 psi or not. If the water pressure is sufficient, the water inlet valve is likely to be defective. The valve may not close completely or get stuck, causing water to seep through the valve. If the water pressure is sufficient, but the ice maker is still overflowing, replace the water inlet valve.

Water Pressure is Low from House Supply:

The water inlet valve supplies water to the ice dispenser and water from the refrigerator. The valve requires a minimum of 20 psi to function properly. If the water pressure is too low, the valve may not close completely when the power is cut off. As a result, the valve loses water in the ice maker, causing it to overflow. Check the water flow and also test the pressure to determine if it is 20 psi or not.

Ice Mker Assembly:

A component of the ice machine assembly may be defective. Since many of the ice machine components are not sold separately, you may need to buy and replace the entire ice machine assembly.

Check The Water Filling Time:

If the water fill time is too long, the refrigerator ice machine will start to overflow. The excess water will begin to accumulate first in the bucket. It will freeze like a large leaf or block. Over time, this will accumulate and spill from the bucket in the rest of the freezer. Make sure the water fill time is correct.

To verify the water fill time, measure the time during which the water is dispensed. It should be around 7.5 seconds. If this is not correct, reset the water fill time. You can remove the front cover of the ice maker and use a screwdriver to increase or decrease the water filling time.
