I disconnected the refrigerator from power, then used hair dryer to thaw the ice in the tray that would not dump. After waiting 15 minutes for further melt time, I replugged the cord and the icemaker began to function normally. The help desk at Whirlpool had no suggestions, other than I should call a service technician to solve my problem. So, using a little engenuity I saved myself the price and delay a service call would entail. I am not sure I spelled engenuity correctly, but that is not my problem.

Why doesn't my ice maker dump the ice out into the ice bin?


several reasons. 1) the ice level sensor bar is pushed up. 2) the motor may have accumulated ice inside it causing it to stop turning. 3) Ice tray thermostat may be bad not heating the tray just prior to dumping.

Lg lfc 21770 ice maker


The defrost heater on your ice tray has failed, Replace the ice tray is only solution, sensors are having trouble as well due the heater problem. Does not know where it is in the cycle, also sounds like the gear on the ice maker is shot due to build up, replacing the ice maker should sort all issues out. If you cant find one, send me a email to WGHEAVEN@Yahoo.com.au and I'll send you one. Regards Russ

Ice maker has ice motor doen't dump the ice


Your ice-maker may need to be "hard-reset". To do this, perform a manual-defrost by emptying out the freezer (and fridge) and shutting all power off to your unit for several hours (at least half a day unless you can be sure the temp in the freezer has fully reached ambient. Next, with freezer empty, restore power, make sure the "ice" setting is set to off, then set the forced power-freeze mode (you can refill the fridge, but leave the freezer empty for now. When the power-freeze completes (at least 2.5 hours) you can refill the freezer, set the "ice" mode to block/crushed (IE something other than off) and then hit the "black reset button" to restart the ice-maker. IF it still will not dump the cubes then the ice sensor/control board may have failed.

KitchenAid ice dispenser tray is dry - not working


Put some water in the ice mold is what I would try. wait and see if the ice maker harvest a batch. If it does drop a batch but no more then the water valve is probably shot. The ice maker itself controls the water. It does this by filling the ice mold for 7.5 seconds. Here is your Ice maker repair manual and some repair photos along with a pictorial which snows how to check the water valve.

Ice maker has ice in the tray, but will not dump or do anything


"Ice in the tray". Do you mean ice is in the well of the ice maker, or in the tray or bucket that collects the harvested cubes from the ice maker?
If the problem is the ice is in the ice maker well, and will not dump, then, if the ice maker is turned on, and the temperature in the freezer is 14 degrees or colder then the ice maker has failed.
In rare occasions an ice maker can be repaired but is rarely done, and is a repair only someone with strong working knowledge of ice makers can perform.
If you are handy with tools you can remove the icemaker. 3 screws and power plug. Once out you can check the well to see if something has jammed up the rake, but that's about all.

Samsung Refrigerator makes ice, but then quits.


I have this same thing happening, also. I have not been able to find a solution to this issue, however. The ejector blades push against the ice, apparently a gear pops loose with a loud clicking sound and the heater either does not work or never turns on. I end up killing the breaker to thr refrig,`removing the icemaker, letting it wrm up dumping the ice and putting it back in.
