My ice maker stopped working


Test the ice maker cycle button on the bottom of the ice maker, if it cycles and fills, replace the ice maker because that is bad. If it cycles and doesn't fill, you could have a few waterline related issues. Check the water pressure out of the dispenser. If it's very slow Unplug the unit for 24 hours, increase the water pressure to the unit , get all of the moisture out and see if it fills after you plug it back in. I bet it's the ice maker though.

Water dispenser is working but it is not making ice


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

You did not include a model number so this is very generic. When an ice maker slows or stops production often the problem is not the ice maker but a symptom of other problems. The biggest reason they stop working and you still have water in door is that here is an ice block on the evaporator coils. The freezer has to cool down to 14 - 16 F before the ice maker thermostat will actuate and begine the harvest cycle.

There are other reasons they stop working
1. The inlet water valve solenoid has failed
2. The inlet water valve is clogged with debris only on the ice maker supply side.
3. The ice maker thermostat fails
4. The ice maker fill fill tube is frozen closed ( 5. The ice maker module or (optics depending upon model) has failed
6. The evaporator fan is turning to slow or not working.
If you would respond with a model number I may be able to send you links to a manual or 2 that would help you troubleshoot.

Now... back to the beginning.. IF you note ice build up / lots of frost in the back of the freezer do the following:
1. Unplug the unit and remove freezer contents
2. Direct a fan into the freezer compartment for just about 2 hours. (water mess)
3. While the unit is defrosting open the lower back of the unit (Compressor area) and clean the condenser coils and fan. Make sure to also clean the drip pan and the END of the compartment drain tube.
4. Clean up the water mess and return the unit to normal service.

If it starts making ice in 6 - 8 hours you have an automatic defrost system problem. Possible causes for NOT defrosting automatically:
1. Defrost control or timer failure (depending on model)
2. Defrost heating element failure
3. Defrost thermostat or thermistor failure depending upon model.
4. Wiring.

Everything should be fine for at least 2 days. If there is an automatic defrosting problem, the ice production will slow and then stop as more ice builds up on the evaporator coils.

The freezer isn't making alot of ice. Can the hose behind the ice maker freeze?


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

When a refrigerator slows down ice production it is usually the result of poor air-flow through the evaporator coils. The poor air-flow is due to ice build up on the evaporator coils. The ice build up happens because the unit is not defrosting properly or the evaporator fan is not running at full speed.

To answer your question "Can an Ice-maker tube freeze?" Yes, they can and do freeze but when they do freeze that is caused by a defective inlet water valve that is leaking water by when it is supposed to be shut off. It can freeze if some one set the temp control to MAX cold. Additionally when they do freeze and the Ice-maker cycles the plastic hose on the back of the unit pops out of the ice maker tube and each cycle starts porting ice maker fill water on the floor.

This may sound odd.. but. Perform a manual defrost by removing the freezer contents and directing a fan into the freezer compartment for just over 2 hours. (Makes a water mess so do not leave it unattended) The return the unit to normal service and after 8 hours start watching the amount of ice produced. (Should be normal for 2 days!) If after 2 days the ice production slows again you have an automatic defrosting problem that is causing the ice build up on the evaporator coils.

If you need any more assistance please include your complete model number in any future responses.

No ice.


Pout about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If it dumps but does not refill , replace the water inlet valve ( the piece the wall water line connects to behind the refrig ) . Also check the tube which fills the ice maker as it will freeze up , not letting water go into the ice maker . This is also caused by a bad water valve .
If the ice maker does not dump the water poured into it , replace the ice maker .
Also , check that the coils are clean under the front of the refrig , as this will cause slow ice production and can cause the ice maker not to dump due to too warm of temperature . Ice maker has to be 5 degrees to operate .

Ice maker very slow to make ice


Sir, To solve this problem, you must open the compressor area at the back bottom of the refrigerator and chek the temperature of the pressure line. If the temperature is between 55celcius to 60 than its ok. Or else you need to change the refrigerant. I suggest you to contact the service authority.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

Have an LG LFX25960TT refrigerator with in door ice maker. The ice maker only makes 2 to 3 ice cubes at a time. (Too slow for my family's needs.) It appears like it doesn't get enough time to fill. Is...


Check to make sure the water supply to the refrig is good and the inlet screen where the water line connects to the refrig is clean. You can change the amount of water fill by pressing the button on the left side of the ice maker. (indicator lights above button show setting) Selecting "Ice Plus" on front of dispenser panel increases ice production for a 24 hour period. Ice maker should produce 6 cubes per cycle, aprox.. 100 to 130 cubes in 24 hours depending on freezer compartment temp, room temp, number of door openings, etc.
