Ice not strong enough to push open ice maker door

I have a Jenn Air side by side fridge. The ice maker door seems to have a tight spring or something because when the ice goes in the chute and then backs up. It seems like the ice isn't strong enough to open the door.

You said,
The ice maker door seems to have a tight spring or something because when the ice goes in the chute and then backs up.

The door needs to be replaced because it is bent or out of alignment!
How old is the fridge??
Now a days you have a 1 year warranty!

Or the seal is not tight and air gets inside past the door and then the moisture freezes on the spring.

Ice maker will only make crushed ice and no cubes, what could be the problem


Open the freezer door.
Pull the ice bin forward about 3 inches.
Push the ice bin to the rear of the freezer until it seats and locks in place.
Then try to dispense cubes.
The ice bin can become dislodged from its locked position and the crushed ice solenoid activates automatically.

Our jenn-air side by side refrigerator with ice-maker has a problem. Quite often it makes a buzzing sound which seems to be more frequent than is normal. There is water inside the freezer which solidifies...


Good day,
You'll need to isolate the problem. Shut the water off to the machine to eliminate the ice maker as an issue. Clean up any mess left over and restart the machine with the ice maker set to the off position.
Run for a few days to test the quality of the cooling capacity of the machine. If it tests O.K. then the ice maker situation can be addressed.

I have a side by side model ACD2238HTS SN#13640707LJ. The ice dispenser door spring seems too strong and you have to reach up with your fingers to pull it open so the ice can come out.


Maybe excessive water dripping from the ice maker that cause the door to "lock-up" a bit. May need to adjust the water flow to ice maker. If that doesn't work, maybe the tempt is set above recommended level and causing the door to stick.

Jenn-Air refrigerator is not making ice but it's dispensing water


It can take up to 24 hours for a new ice maker to make ice.  Check it tomorrow.

ICE MAKER MOTOR RUNS CONSTANTLY AND WONT' TURN OFF ICE IS FULL


It's not too difficult to remove the ice maker. A few screws and the unit will unplug from the fridge. Then you can see why the bar is not turning it off. If it's really broken, check pcappliance.com for parts or a replacement unit. Meanwhile the fridge can keep on working, and you can use trays to make ice.

Fridge freezer door ice maker


the ice maker controls the seloniod the icemaker wire arm must be all the way down .just because the seloniod test good doesnt mean the valve seat isnt stuck the water valves open by your house water pressure if your filter is dirty this can also lower the pressure if the icemaker module is bad this also can cause it if you pull the front of the ice-maker off you will se a bunch of holes if you get a piece of 10 Gage house strip about 1/4 inch off either side and insert it into the holes marked t and h that will test cycle the ice maker they will be close together don't get shocked if the ice maker cycles and doesnt fill and the ice maker fill tube isn't frozen replace the water valve if the ice-maker doesn't cycle replace the brown motor module
