Icemaker Not Filling Enough

If the icemaker is only partially filling with water:

  • You may get only 3, 4 or 5 cubes, instead of the normal 7 or 8
  • You may also have hollow or "mushy" ice cubes
Check the following:
  • Make sure you have proper water pressure to the refrigerator. The water pressure must be between 40 and 120 psi (pounds per square inch).
  • If you are using a self-tapping saddle-valve, we recommend changing it to one that is not self-tapping. Self-tapping valves do not provide a proper opening for water to pass through. Saddle valves that require drilling a 1/4" hole in the pipe are the best to use, and can be purchased at local hardware or plumbing supply stores.
