Machine has stopped working and is in alarm


Possibly a stuck or defective ice level switch in the ice bin. It's supposed to cease the ice making when the bin gets full and then return the ice making components back on when the ice level drops to a certain level. Should be an easy fix if the switch is bad. The wires have push connectors on them.

Ice-maker not functioning


Ice maker stopped making ice. For this problem you have check few things. First thing, is the water filling in the ice maker chamber and then ice maker not making ice? Or, the water is not filling in the ice maker chamber so it's not making ice. If the water is not filling in the ice maker chamber then it's clear that ice is not getting made due to no water in the chamber. For no water filling, the problem is either water supply valve turned off so water is not filling. Turn on the water supply and it will fill. But if the water supply is turned on then the other possibility is ice blockage in the water fill tube. There is a tube from which the water runs and enters the ice maker chamber. If this tube is blocked then water will not enter the chamber. The tube needs to be defrosted, by using hair dryer. This procedure melts the ice collected in the tube and water starts running again. But if water fill tube is completely clear and no ice blockage or any other blockage. Then other possibility is water valve at the back of ice maker unit. This water valve is for letting the water in the ice maker. The water valve open only for 7 seconds and in this time the water fills in the ice maker chamber and then water valve closes and the same procedure runs again in the next water filling cycle.------- For your information I will mention that there are two valves. One is the main valve the back of the fridge section. This main valve lets the water enter the refrigerator and other valve is at the back of ice-maker section. This other valve lets the water to enter the ice maker. In most of the cases the fault is water valve at the back of ice maker section. ------------- The other above possibilities which I gave you is water not filling in ice-maker chamber so it's not making ice. But now consider that water is filling in ice maker chamber but it's still not making ice. Then the problem is ice maker unit itself. This unit is controlled by main board. But in most cases if water is filling the ice maker but it's not making ice then its faulty ice maker unit. So see if the problem is water not entering the ice maker then the water fill tube is frosted by ice or the water valve at the back of ice maker is faulty. Replace the valve. ------------

You can get required parts from sears part direct online site or from repairclinic.com site.

This will help. Thanks. Helpmech.

Ice maker not working


Follow the water line. You will find a control valve like a washing machine has. It's easy to check out and replace.

Water dripping from water shute just above ice maker;


Yes the water valve is not sealing correctly and if left untreated can cause issues with freezing up the pipe work and causing water to run down the back of the machine. the poor seal could be caused by grit or limescale getting trapped . it is very easy to change for someone who is diy minded.

Ice maker is not functioning


sounds like a frozen fill tube, easy to check pull out refrig and you see plstic tub running into top of freezer section from behind, sometimes theres a connector fitting half way up the tube, if not you have to cut tubing and install a coupling to repair cut(available at any harware store)after cutiin tube try blowin throughin to freezer, if you cant its frozen,un freezing somtimes challange, sometimes able to blow straight though the ice other timesi se hair dryer (from iside freezer where fills the ice maker itself. best way ive found is using my steam machine i bought from one of the infomercial.good luck!!!
