Whirlpool bottom freezer ice maker will only make ice if I pull and then replace the ice container, why?


The ice maker works off a timer that controls the discharge of ice, water fill, etc. Right before the tray discharges ice it is heated slightly so the ice is just slippery enough to discharge the ice. Unfortunately, now and then (for us) a chunk of ice remains in the tray. This chunk prevents the blades from rotating and eventually you have a mass of new ice with the blades in the wrong position. The blades have to be in a certain position for the heater to kick in. You are stuck with cracking up the ice stuck in the tray to get the blades to rotate again. We have an Electrolux ice maker but this problem occurs periodically. The root of the problem is it's failure to heat up the ice tray adequately to discharge ALL the ice. One thing to remember is that next time this happens you have to manually break up the ice in the tray and push the timer advance button until the 2 set of blades are fully closed (hidden) and at 90 degrees. From that point on at least the ice maker can start making more ice.

Ice maker sotp making ice / red light blinking


J, As you open the freezer door the LED on the right should flash 2X with a pause repeatedly. When you hold the left side emmiter down the light should stay on steady. If you have this, you know the optics are good unless the ejector blades are not home. First thing to check is where the ejector blades on the ice maker are parked. They should be resting in the 2:00 position. If they are not, you could have a broken module. If they are in the 2:00 positon the next thing to check would be the fill tube. You want to make sure it is not frozen over. You can disconnect it from the back and see if you can blow through the line or visually inspect it. If all of the above mentioned check out, jump start the ice-maker. Remove the quarter inch screw holding the harness cover on the right side. Remove the harness cover. Pull the ice-maker straight out but be carefull not to smash the emmitter flap on the left side. Leave the harness connected. Get a jumper wire with the ends stripped apout a 1/4 inch. Unplug the refer and place the jumper in test holes T&H. Leave the jumper in and place the ice maker on the shelf where you can close the door. Close the door and plug the refer back in. Wait 30 seconds and open the door. The ice maker should be cycleing. Pull the jumper and place the module cover back on. Put the ice maker back in the rails. It should fill at approx the 12:00 position. Let me know how you make out. Catriver.

GE Side by Side Refrig - loud noise behind the ice maker section Model PSS25SGMB BS


it sounds like the evaporator fan blade is hitting some ice that has built up around the blades i have seen this happen a lot on g.e. SxS lately,if you can remove the ice maker and dispenser you can see the fan blade,if you dont want to do this then shut down the refrigerator and leave freezer door open and heat it carefully with a hairdrier to speed the process up to melt this ice then restart it and the noise should be gone

My ice maker is making ice very slowly


Get a good thermometer and check the temperature inside the freezer. The ideal temperature is going to be around 0, and if it's above about 11 degrees ice production will be slowed down significantly.

Ice Maker Making Noise


I was able to solve this problem by doing the following:

1) Carefully (because there may be sharp metal blades in this area) reached into the upper left compartment of the icemaker and pressed down on ice cubes that seemed to be lodged there and were protruding slightly above the slots they should have been passing through.

2) Press down on the cubes, forcing them through the slots and into the cube container below

3) Lift the metal arm, remove and completely empty the ice cube container

4) Return the ice cube container to the freezer, making sure it is seated properly

Close the freezer and wait until the ice cube maker begins to make new ice cubes. The sound should stop in around 10-15minutes.
