Hello. Thank you for choosing Just Answer. I will be helping you with your question today. Make sure the ice maker doesn't have an ice cube jammed in it.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
there is not an ice cube jammed in there . the ice cube trays dont fill with water but the water feature works fine . the bracket in the back that spins the ice towards the exit seems to work ok also.
Expert:  Appliance Man replied 5 years ago.
Ok make sure the fill tube to the ice maker isnt frozen.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
the fill tube is not frozen . it was about three months ago , but i cleaned it . although after that we did not get cubed ice only crushed even when the cube button on the readout was on.

Ok you need to replace the water valve on the back of the fridge.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
is the water valve at the bottom of the fridge . if not can you explain where it is . thank you
Expert:  Appliance Man replied 5 years ago.
Yes it is. The valve is the part that the house supply hooks up to the fridge.
