Thanks for the clarification. This will be the cause of a failed valve coupling assembly. The line pressure is to strong for the valve coupling device. it is not holding properly. i would inspect the entire ICE Making module for correct fit at the line connection. The line may be to large or small for the particular valve assembly, which can cause the line to separate when pressurized by the flow of water. The best solution for this problem Will be to verify that the line with is correct, and the valve assembly is providing proper fit for the corresponding lines to and from the ice maker module.
Concerning the other issue with fill. The erratic filling state of the ice maker indicates that there may be an issue with your valve. I would test the operational value of this valve. use my procedure to guide you through this valve inspection.
First, you will need to rule out any standard issues that will cause this. Check the internal, and external feed lines for any obstructions. Make sure that the internal lines are not frozen, or kinked. If the lines check out ok, move on to the water filter(if equipped).
In most units, there will be a filter, present. These devices are set to operate on a particular time frame. If their filtering limit is met, the filter will stop filtering water, thus, not allowing the fluid to flow, at all. Make sure that the filter is up to date. If you have verified that the filter is ok, move on to the water inlet valve assembly.
The water inlet valve is located behind your refrigerator. Find the water supply line coming into the valve and turn it off at the source (typically under the sink). Disconnect the supply line. Remove the screws that secure the inlet valve in place.
The water inlet valve is connected by two wires. Label the wire placement on the water inlet valve before disconnecting the wires. The wires are connected to the terminals with slip on connectors
Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If the connectors are corroded they should be replaced.
Inspect the filter screen where the supply line connects. Remove any debris or deposits that may have built up using a toothbrush, or warm running water. If you cannot clear the clog, it will be necessary to replace the valve (the filter is not removable on most inlet valves).
Test the water inlet valve for continuity using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X100 (if available, otherwise use the nearest ohm setting). Place a probe on each terminal. The multimeter should display a reading of 200 to 500 ohms. Close inspection of the inlet valve and especially the coil may reveal the exact ohm resistance rating to test for. If the water inlet valve does not pass this test, it should be replaced.

Here is my problem in its entirety. I have GE side by side, ice and water in the door. The issue is the supply tube inside the box feeding the icemaker is actually working it's way out of the freezer. I put it back in place last week and in 4 or 5 days it literally worked its way back out. Now the water comes on at night for the icemaker and is forming the water fall of ice so to speak. Also, when I got everything put back together in efforts to get the icemaker working again, for some reas

I have a Whirlpool Side by side Model ed25uexhw01 Serial sk4354373 Refrigerator. A thin sheet of Ice forms in the bottom of the freeze side about every other day or so. I can lift it out very easy and throw it away and it comes back again. It looks like a vent of some sort is in the back wall and ice seems to be at the bottom of the vent. The icemaker is not leaking. It seems to be working OK. The drinking water unit in the front seems to be OK also.

Icemaker We turned off ice maker to leave on vacation. When ice maker was turned back on it would not make ice.
I don't think water is going to ice maker. Tubing doesn't seem to be frozen.
The water on door is working and if water put in by hand ice will form.
Check the power conection to the ice maker. If that's ok, then I would think the solenoid that controls the water flow has gone bad. Unfortunately, you will likely have to replace the whole ice maker, I don't think they are reparable. ...

I have a Sub Zero 361 Side by side fridge/freezer and the ice maker suddenly stopped working. It still cycles, but no water is coming out to fill ice maker. I don't hear any sounds from the water valve...not even a hum when it should activate. The fridge is enclosed in paneling and is a pain to move...is the water valve accesible from inside the fridge or does it need to be accessed from the back of the fridge? Is there any simple way to test the water valve? Any and all advice is appreciated.

My ice maker (M1) wont make ice. I have disconnectted the line from the valve to the fill tray and then plugged the icemaker back in and raised the arm to activate the icemaker.
I put a bowl under the fill valve where the line to the tray goes and waited for 30 minutes. There was no water.....I did all of this to eliminate any problems in the fill line and/or icemaker itself.
Now either the icemaker isnt "calling" for the ice to activate the valve OR the valve isnt working....Does this sound c
