SOURCE: Ice maker not making any ice.

UN-PLUG YOUR REFRIGERATOR !!!!!! AND THEN ... THE FIRST THING TO CHECK IS FOR PROPER WATER GOING "INTO" AND "OUT OF" THE SMALL WATER SUPLLY SOLENOID VALVE (USUALLY LOCATED ON THE BACK OF THE FRIG.WHERE THE WATER LINE GOES IN. TRACE WATER LINE BACK TO ITS SORCE ... TURN "OFF" THE VALVE. USING AN ADJUSTABLE WRENCH, LOSSEN THE NUT AND ENSURE YOU HAVE GOOD WATER FLOW.LEAVE WATER "OFF" THEN GO TO THE BACK OF THE FRIG. AND REMOVE THE NUT ON THE "SUPPLY LINE SIDE" OF THE SMALL WATER SOLENOID VALVE.... THERE IS A STRAINER AND ORFICE JUST INSIDE THAT CONNECTION ... CLEAN IT !!! DO NOT POKE A LARGER WHOLE IN THE ORFICE. REPLACE ALL PARTS IN THE REVERSE ORDER THEY WERE REMOVED AND TIGHTEN ALL CONECTIONS. TURN WATER SUPPLY BACK "ON".AND PLUG REFRIGERATOR BACK-IN. (ALWAYS WAIT ALEAST 15 MINUTES TO RESTORE ELECTRIC POWER TO ANY REFRIGERATOR). NOW JUST SLOWLY LOOSEN THE OTHER NUT ON THE "OUT-LET" SIDE LEADING INSIDE THE BACK OF THE FRIG. SEE IF YOU HAVE WATER. IF YOU DO ... YOU VAN NOW CHECK TO SEE IF THE SOLENOID IS WORKING.... JUST USE A BUTTER KNIFE AND PLACE IT NEAR THE TOP SIDE(COIL) OF THE SOLENOID ... YOU SHOULD FEEL THE "MAGNETIC PULL" ... IF YOU HAVE DONE ALL THE ABOVE AND YOU STILL HAVE PROBLEMS ... CALL A "LICSENED FACTORY-CERTIFIED COMPANY" TO DO A "FLAT-RATE" DIAGNOSTIC CHECK ON YOUR CIRCUITS. ALWAYS GET A "TOTAL COST" ESTAMATE BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS OR SIGNING ANYTHING. NEVER LET A REPAIRMAN REMOVE AND LEAVE THE HOME WITH A DEFECTIVE PART AT ANYTIME HE IS THERE. (UNLESS THE PART IS UNDER VWARRANTY) NEVER BE AFFRAID TO WATCH AND ASK YOUR REPAIRMAN QUESTIONS. REAL PROFESSIONALS ARE HAPPY TO ANSWER AND SHOW YOU EXACTLY WHAT THEY ARE DOING... THATS BECAUSE THEY KNOW WHAT THERE DOING AND PROUD OF IT !!!!

SOURCE: Whirlpool Refrigerator Model ED25PW Ice maker tray not filling with water

  1. Check to see if water is flowing @ the water inlet valve @ the rear of the unit. You can remove it and clean if out-then put it back in service. You can purchase a new valve -- maybe @ home depot.

SOURCE: ice maker freezes up

It's likely you have your freezer to cold, Try reducing the setting on that. If that doesn't work you might wanna check your freezer and make sure it's not thawing and then freezing again, you might have a problem with your fridges thermostat.

My ice maker will work 1 cycle and then it wont work again for a few days. I can here the compressor start up and it hums for 10 seconds then a click happens and its over. No more humming.


Compressor over load switch is the clicking you here. check the compressor to see if it has a start capacitor if so check to see if it is good. if it dose not have one then check compressor relays make sure there in good working order.

Freezer too warm


First off, how old is the unit? Without knowing, my advice, and what has worked many times, is to unplug the unit, and turn it upside down. Thats right. Upside down. May take a couple or few people, depending on the weight. What this does, is to have the refrigerant begin running back to the top of the unit. Sometimes it settles in the bottom, and has to have extra help to start moving properly again. If, after about 6 to 24 hours it doesn't seem to have helped, it could be that you have lost the fluid, but that doesn't seem very likely. If you had, it would run consistently at the same warm temperature. If it helps, you may want to repeat the procedure to insure that it is completely free flowing. Cheap fix, if it fixes things. Good luck.

My ice maker doesn't make enough ice cubes


Is the ice maker itself filling normally, meaning where the cubes are made gets enough water to cover the complete area or just a few slots? If not then check the fill tube where the water comes into the ice maker to make sure no ice has formed blocking the water from coming in.
Now if ice production in general has slowed, going from every 45 minutes or so to like every 6 hours, then your machine more than likely isn't getting cold enough. The ice maker requires the temperature be at least 10 degrees F or below for it to function properly.

Ice Maker Doesn't Work


Is there ice in the ice tray? If so the heater is not working to allow the scooper to push the ice out into the tray. If no ice in tray then the fill solenoid is not opening to allow water into the tray. Replace the solenoid.

Ice maker is not working. doesn't appear that it's


There are many things that can go wrong with a Kenmore refrigerator ice maker. Your ice maker may be leaking. It may not make any ice at all, or the ice that comes out smells or has an odd appearance. The problem may have an easy solution, or it may require a technician's expertise. The troubleshooting tips in this article will minimally make you aware of what is likely the source of the problem. You may be able to fix the problem yourself and save a bundle.

When it Won't Make Ice
1 Get a thermometer and see how cold it is in there. If your freezer is fewer than 17 degrees F, it won't make ice. The freezer temperature setting may be too high or the thermometer is broken and not calibrated correctly. If adjusting the temperature fails to work, call a Kenmore technician.
2 Determine if your water fill spout in the freezer is plugged with ice. If so, no new ice can be made. Try clearing it out or melting the ice by running a hair dryer on it for a few minutes.
3 Turn your refrigerator around to look at the back side to see if water is getting to the water inlet valve behind the fridge. If the water is not properly connected, there's no water to make ice.
4 Use an ohm meter to test for coil continuity. If the ohm meter shows there is no continuity, then you will need to replace the water inlet valve.

Have a good day : )

Freezer works, fridge doesn't cool


Probably excessive ice in the condensor. Likely defrost thermostat or defrost heater problem.

What happens is excessive ice keeps airflow from the refrigerator part of the unit.

Ice maker hasn't worked in years. A couple of days ago food below the ice maker was thawed. Today I felt that the ice maker was hot to the touch. Is there anyway to disengage the power to the ice make


Yes you will need to take the screws that mount the Ice maker to the side of the freezer and unplug the cable plug that is hidden behind the back of ice maker. The only time that element is needed to become hot is the moments before the ice maker drops ice. Thanks, Sea Breeze
