Ice maker not dumping ice

After having the refridgerator unplugged for a couple hours, the ice maker is not dumping ice. There are ice cubes made, ready to dump. I tried raising and lowering the lever in the ice maker. I also checked the water supply...I am able to fill a glass of water from the water dispensor.

Re: Ice maker not dumping ice

Make sure the freezer is at least 17 degrees or colder (colder is better). If you have a square cover on the end of the ice maker see if you can pull it off and press on the gear face (don't turn just press). That may clean the electrical contact springs and get it working again. Basically if ya got water, 17 degrees or colder you will get ice. Other than that the ice maker motor module is likely bad (broken gear, etc.). Pretty common.

Re: Ice maker not dumping ice

Make sure there's no "alien" object that got clogged onto the ice dispenser itself.

Re: Ice maker not dumping ice

Mine makes ice and does not dump it... unless the bin is out! I took out the bin to begin trouble shooting and had to stop to answer the phone. While on the phone, I heard the ice drop. Not sure how to fix it yet but it seems like the ice maker is lower than it should be.

SOURCE: My ice maker is crushing the ice despite the fact

the bottom of the tray has a rod attached to it that controls a flapper that opens up to allow the ice to pass thru without hitting the cutter or crush blades. this rod goes into a housing at the back of the freezer that has a solenoid switch that activates it to open it up. check to make sure all of these items are free of ice and in their proper position and or not broken. if this all looks good then you may have a bad solenoid switch.

The Refrigerator's ice maker makes ice, but will not eject the ice. Have tried to reset the ice maker but will not eject, any ideas?

The ice maker has heater that thaws the ice cubes a little before they are ejected. This keeps the from sticking to the form.

Water works on door but ice maker isn't making ice occasionally hear noise like trying to dump ice cubes but no ice

the water valve located on the back of the refrigerator that the water line is connected to could be bad. if no water is coming to the ice maker then it shouldn't have any ice or water in the ice mold. if it is empty you can try pouring enough water in the mold to make ice cubes. wait an hour or so and see if the ice maker dumps the ice. if it does you probably have a bad water valve.

if your ice maker has ice in it but had been making small cubes you should check to make sure you don't have a jam. small cubes could be from low water pressure or a blockage. if your refrigerator has a water filter it may be time to replace it if the water dispenser water pressure is also low.

I set the ice maker feature to make cubes with my samsung refrigerator rs2555sw. But the ice maker makes a ice chunk. All the cubes are frozen together with a flat and thick layer of ice on top..

Hi and welcome to Fixya.

Remove the front cover after the ice tray has dumped cubes and remove all of the water from your ice maker tray.

Then depress the test button on the bottom of the icemaker (in front on bottom) located about 1 inch from the lower rh corner.

The icemaker fill cycle should add just enough water to cover barely cover the tray. (see page 32 of the 25 Sept 2005 user's manual)

If it is overfilling the icemaker fill time / water level needs to be reduced on the ice maker module. A normal fill cycle is about 7.5 seconds.

Another thing that will cause larger cubes is high water supply (utility co) pressure.

A temporary fix would be to slowly close the refridgerator water supply line's shut off vavle so that the water flow restricts.

The real solution is to investigate ice maker fill time, and the function of the icemaker water supply solenoid vavle for possible Delayed closing of the internal diaphram.

GE side x side When ice maker switch is on, freezer warms up

It sounds like the ice maker is stuck in the harvest ( dump ) mode , in the area of mold heater activation . This area , heats up the ice mold to unfreeze the cubes , and keeps rotating to dump the cubes . This heater , gets hot enough to actually burn you if you touch the mold .
I would remove the 2 screws holding the ice maker , unplug from the ice maker receptical , and replace the ice maker .

I have a GE Profile Side by side that is working fine except the ice maker won't dump the frozen ice cubes in the tray. Another party in the house decided it would be a good idea to put water in the tray...

The ice maker is basically frozen. There are two fixes for this condition. If you can transfer all of the food out to another appliance you can unplug and open the doors and let it completely defrost on its own.

the other method is to use a blow dryer. When you have completely defrosted the ice maker and thoroughly dryed it spray the ice cube tray with pam cooking spray which will act as a lubricant. When you are ready to make ice again expect the ice maker to take about 24 hours before the first batch of ice cubes are ejected.

Ice maker freezes up and drips water

I am assuming you have the ice maker that the tray twists to release the ice. There is a new tray out with a wall to prevent the water spilling over. The part number is
