If it was the problem then it shouldnt take very long couple hours at the most. If it wasnt the problem then the hose that feeds the ice maker may be stoped up. If it dosent work put a little bleach in it and see if that helps

SOURCE: ice maker not working

In my freezer, there's an infrared beam positioned over the top of the ice bin. If the bin is full of ice, it blocks the beam and no ice can be made. In addition, when you open the freezer door, a small (2x3") door opens in the freezer to block the beam, again to prevent ice from being made while the door is open. Is anything blocking the path of this beam from one side of the freezer to the other?

SOURCE: Ice Maker not Getting Water

There are two solenoid-operated water valves - one for the water dispenser and one for the icemaker. They're located near the water connection at the back of the fridge. There is no pump; the water pressure sends water to the icemaker whenever this valve is opened by the icemaker controls. Your symptoms sound like the coil is burned out on the valve. You can check it by disconnecting the wires and checking for coil continuity with an ohmeter. If the coil is open, replace the valve. Both valves might be combined into one assembly, so be sure you test both coils. Of course it's also possible that the trouble is in the icemaker itself, but a failed intake valve is more likely.

SOURCE: Brand new Kenmore refrigerator, ice maker does not work

According to the manufacture, you must wait 24hrs to reap the benefits of the automatic ice maker. I was helping a friend the other day install a water line to a side by side unit that had been running for well over a week and after turning the water on we got no ice. We contacted the manufacture and they said "there is a 24hr waiting period". This makes no sense. I wasn't trying to get a gun permit, just ice.

SOURCE: ice machine isn't working

Two things come to mind.

First, the water valve at the bottom rear of the refrigerator may have failed. You didn't mention if there is a water dispenser and whether or not this is still working. This valve pumps water to the icemaker and water dispenser when the control unit of the icemaker calls for water. Also, there could be a blockage in the line which brings the water to the icemaker.

The other possibility is that the part of the icemaker controls which calls for water from the valve has failed. If this has happened, it would likely be more cost effective to replace the icemaker unit.

Frigidaire FGHN2844LP ice freezing together. Replaced filter. Twenty hours later, ice maker not working, freezer warm, refrigerator temp. steady 40.


Hello Pat Havard,

I was pulling your owners manual to TRY to determine what could be done to block your freezer door or ice chute open during the filter changing process...

Today the ambient air temperature was at least 90 - 100°F
(degrees Fahrenheit)... To maintain 40°F your refrigerator
has to be working...

You need to look at your FREEZER side...
Your food, a pizza box... ice tray...
SOMETHING... in your immediate WORK area
is blocking vents... or proper closure...

Look at the door switch... make sure your light is OFF

My best guess... FILTER FIASCO induced.

We changed the filter for the water, now it will not dispense water, but the ice maker still works.


Hello nott225 - The issue sounds like it might be related to the temperature in the freezer. What is it set to? Make sure that the temperature is approximately around 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly. If it is properly set, then consult a professional to accurately pinpoint any potentially more serious issues like a faulty ice maker valve or even the ice maker itself.

Change water filter indicator came on so i changed the water filter now the refrigerator won't make any ice, checked the on off button in the ice making unit which is on, what the problem?


This unit has water dispenser and ice maker? If yes, you must get all the air out of your water line, how to do this is keep fill water glasses until you get a good flow of water and no more air, also the water may drip some what so. until all the air is pushed out of the line your ice maker can not make any ice, please let me know what you find. Thanks Rick...

Do i need to change the filter in order to get the ice maker to work? the water still come out but not into the ice maker. please help!


no you donot need to change the filter first. all of the water goes through the filter first. you either have a bad water valve for the ice maker. a bad ice maker. or bad optics that sense the ice bin on the door is full. can you move the ejector blades on the ice maker? that will tell you if the ice maker gear is broken.

My ice maker quit working when I replaced the water filter.


Your model Maytag comes with an electronic ice maker and if you just recently changed the water filter the water should be dispensed for 2 or 3 minutes or until any air that may be trapped in the lines is removed. If air is sill present in the filter the ice maker opens the water control valve for about 7.5 seconds. If air that is what the ice maker will get until the air is completely purged from the system. If you fill that you have past that point then pour tap water into the ice maker and let freeze. After the water freezes the ice maker should cycle and dump. If not the the ice maker core may need replaced. If yes it dumps then the air may not yet purged or the water control valve for the ice maker side may be defective. This is one of those wait and see repairs. I will send you a link to the copy of the service manual and page 71 begins addressing the ice maker. Thanks, Sea Breeze
