I have a Whirlpool Fridge, model #GDSHAXNB00. The ice maker is not currently working. It appears that the ejector arm piece that fits into the outside wheel that turns it has broken off. Therefore, when the wheel spins. Can anyone tell me which part I actually need to order to fix this problem?

Freezer wont make ice cubes


This is not difficult to troubleshoot.
  • When the arm is up the ice maker is off
  • When the bucket is full the arm is up the maker is off.
  • If the ice maker has a on/off button in off the ice maker is off
  • If the ice maker internal heater fails the cubes will not release and the white plastic ejector arms will be rotated CCW and pressing against the ice in the tray, Normal position for ejector arms is vertical.
  • If water solenoid has failed or water supply not available the ice maker will cycle. The ice tray will be empty,(hard to see if ice tray is empty). Check and replace water fill solenoid.
  • If ice in tray and ejector arms vertical several possibilities.
    • Freezer not cold enough to trip thermostat in ice maker to initiate release cycle.
    • Check freezer temperature <10 Fahrenheit thermostat in ice maker failure
    • Ice maker motor failure,
    • Internal ice maker electrical connections rotary switch failure,
    The best way to check the operation is to manually lock the arm up into the off retention position. Wait a minimum of one hour. Open door and release arm down. Observe the operation of the ice maker. Is after a minute or so the ejector arm does not rotate then it is likely the ice maker has failed internally. If the ejector turns and no ice than you can assume either the water supply is off external from the refrigerator or more likely the water solenoid located behind the bottom back cover has failed. It is also possible that the hose that connects the solenoid to the ice maker has frozen right where it enters the freezer just above the ice maker. You should see ice built up at the entrance where the water fills the tray if this has occurred.

LG LRSC 26920tt won't make ice


In order to determine the problem you must check a few things:

1) Is there water in the ice tray? If not. verify the saddle valve is turned on, check the connection on the water valve, verify that there are no kinks in the inlet hose, and check he water filter to see if it is clogged.

2) Is the temperature correct? Make sure the fans are working properly and air is flowing. Verify the the frig and freezer are at the correct temperature and make sure the ice maker compartment door is sealing shut.

If these things check out ok, run an ice maker test. Make sure the ejector arm and feeler arm are in their original positions before beginning. If they are not:

1. Turn off icemaker and wait 5sec.
2. Turn on icemaker.
3. Wait until feeler arm and ejector are back to original positions.

To begin the icemaker test: Press and hold the test button on the icemaker for 5 seconds. If the LED, feeler arm and or ejector does not return to to their original positions the problem is with the ice maker.
The ice maker part number for your model is 5989JA0002G

Whirlpool ice maker not working


Ice makers are some of the most worked part of a refrigerator and have about a five year lifespan. There are just too many things that can go wrong that can stop the ice making process. To explain the process of a Whirlpool ice maker I am going to post a Whirlpool Ice Maker Troubling pdf and a short YouTube Icemaker Repair toutorial. If you have any questions I will be here to assist you, Thanks Sea Breeze

Artica side by side fridge, about 5 years old. just started making a sound like a hammer drill. but everything is still working seemingly fine, can ya please help me? joey@soldierwater.com


I assume that you have the model with the ice maker in the door.
The sound you describe would lead me to suspect the ice-maker is stuck/broken. Look and see if the ice ejector bar is hung up on a piece of ice or something else.
If nothing else, turn off the ice maker by raising the metal fill bar arm and see if the noise stops. It could also be broken gear inside the ice eject mechanism.
If this is not it post again referencing that you tried the above.

LFX25960ST Ice Maker Shutoff Arm


Unplug the ice maker from the fridge. You will see the plug by following the wired coming from the ice maker. Leave it sit for 20 mins. Plug it back in and hold the green ice cube size button in and watch for the ejector fingers begin to move. If they move they will go around to about 11 o'clock or so and the water should come on filling the tray. If any of these things don't happen, you have a bad ice maker.

I have a Whirlpool Model EC3JHAXRL00. The ice


Is the ice maker wire shutoff arm or switch (depending on
models) in the OFF position?
 Is the water line shutoff valve to the refrigerator turned on?
 Has the ice maker just been installed? Is the freezer
temperature cold enough to produce ice? Wait 24 hours
after ice maker hookup for ice production to begin. Allow
3 days after ice production begins to completely fill ice
container.
 Does the ice maker mold have water in it or has no ice
been produced? Make sure your refrigerator has been
connected to a water supply and the supply shutoff valve is
turned on.
 Has a large amount of ice just been removed? Allow
24 hours for ice maker to produce more ice.
 Is there a water filter installed on the refrigerator? The filter
may be clogged or installed incorrectly.
 Is an ice cube jammed in the ice maker ejector arm?
For models with an interior ice bin, remove the ice from the
ejector arm with a plastic utensil.
 Is a reverse osmosis water filtration system connected to
your cold water supply? Make sue your connections are secure.

The ice maker in my whirlpool gold refrigerator Model No, GR2FHTXTBOO, is not working.


Hello jitkagardner,
Welcome


You said, The ice maker in my whirlpool gold refrigerator Model No, GR2FHTXTBOO, is not working.

How old is the fridge?
When have you last changed the water filter.
Should be down below at the front grille!
Try these tasks!

If the ice maker is not producing ice or not enough ice
Refrigerator connected to a water supply and the supply
shutoff valve turned on? Connect refrigerator to water
supply and turn water shutoff valve fully open.
• Kink in the water source line? A kink in the line can reduce
water flow. Straighten the water source line.
• Ice maker turned on? Make sure wire shutoff arm or switch
(depending on model) is in the ON position.
• New installation? Wait 24 hours after ice maker installation
for ice production to begin. Wait 72 hours for full ice
production.
• Freezer door closed completely? Firmly close the freezer
compartment door. If the freezer compartment door will not
close all the way, see "The doors will not close completely."
• Large amount of ice recently removed? Allow 24 hours for
ice maker to produce more ice.
• Ice cube jammed in the ice maker ejector arm?
Remove ice from the ejector arm with a plastic utensil.
• Water filter installed on the refrigerator? Remove filter and
operate ice maker. If ice volume improves, then the filter may
be clogged or incorrectly installed. Replace filter or reinstall it
correctly.
• Reverse osmosis water filtration system connected to
your cold water supply? This can decrease water pressure.

Let me know how it goes!

Ice maker will not push out ice cubes once frozer


That means that the evaporator fan system that releases the the ice cubes is not working as it should.

The heater, or evaporator fan and heating system must be checked, and fan, or solenoid, or element must be replaced.

Use the number listed on the owner manual if you want to call a technician.

Enter model number on this website to find schematics and replacement parts.

GE PSS26 NGP Ice maker


Hi Vadim, You should have a steady light showing on the ice maker. If the lead is flashing, it's either a thermistor failure or ejector not home. The reasons why the ejector blades will not home is because of a magnet failure, control board failure or a stalled motor. The feeler arm could also be sticking. The control board contains 2 sensors that are activated by magnets. One magnet is attached to the end of the ejector arm to determine whether the ejector blades are at home. The other is located on the ice sensing arm, lets the control know whether the arm has reached a fully extended position. In a lot of these, I find the magnets broken. I think you can save yourself a lot of trouble by just replacing this ice-maker. Catriver.

Frozen ejector arm


sounds more like the heater in the ice maker is bad. The cycles of the ice maker are: 1. water comes in to fill ice maker. 2. water freezes in ice maker making. 3. heater comes on to help ice release. 4. motor comes on to eject the ice and start all over again. if the heater doesn't come on the ice will not eject. replacing the icemaker is typically what needs to be done in this case.
