    I have the same model approximately three years old, and mine stop making ice the same day you posted your problem. I inspected the unit and found the ice stripper and control module broken. After a crash course in learning how to diagnose, I determined they broke because the ice cube mold heater stopped working. After adding up the $$ of the replacement parts, it's was cheaper to order a whole new assembly.

Every time ice maker runs, water accumulates at the bottom of the fridge. It is a bottom freezer model made 9-2013. What could be plugged?


Hi,

Check the ice maker fill cup, it could be full of water or ice and all the water misses the ice maker. Check the fill line in the freezer to make sure its in the full cup to the ice maker. CHeck the drain under the evaporator in the freezer to see if it is open and obstructed. Thats what I would look for. Good Luck

Frigidaire side by side with ice maker .. ice maker jams and quits making ice


Hi,
Hollow ice cubes are a result of lack of water to ice maker. This can be caused by lack of water pressure (clogged filter, bad water valve, obstructed fill tube, etc..) you will need to find the cause to correct this hollow ice cube issue. The ice maker should take on 5.5 oz of water when it cycles (2/3 cup). Mot of the time its a water supply issue and the line could be kinked behind the unit as it was rolled back into place.

Good Luck

How to remove icemaker from whrilpool ultraease refridgerator


I had a simular problem with my Whirlpool frig--First of all I would check 1/4 inch plastic line coming from water valve up to ice maker,loosen this line & try to blow thru it -if there is an obstruction it probably is frozen inside plastic fitting at top where it goes thru cabinet & into ice maker if so you can melt by by running a very warm metal object up & inside fitting be patient, you need to both inside & outside--If this the problem,your water valve is probaly bad because of not shutting off properly causing the "drip effect" you can purchase valve on line for aprox $10.00--$25.00 Good Luck--John Morris--

Icemaker makes lil ice cubes now could this mean the line is clogged?


Would not expect you to ask this question but yes you are right cajunboudoin, an obstructed water line by either a defective water control valve, water filter beyond its useful life or a crimped water supply line will cause the ice cubes to be small during drop of ice cubes into ice bin. Fact is with Whirlpool the water valve is set to remain open filling ice maker for around 7 seconds. If water is moving slow filling the time will be to slow for the flow, If anyone has a good question you do but I would always want everyone to provide their model number, Click Here=> Whirlpool Ice Maker Troubleshooting Thanks Sea Breeze

Maytag side by side refrigerator with freezer on the bottom water is spraying everywhere when the ice machine comes on. It has the ice / water dispenser on the front. Any ideas?


Check the water line leading to the ice maker for kinks. Also check the filer and ice tray end of the waterline for obstructions or ice that might be deflecting the water to areas other than the ice tray. Let me know how you make out. :^)

GE refrigerator is not making ice


There are several types of ice makers with the same model number. Some of my questions may seem over - the - top, but I do not know your level of ability. Do not take offense.

Did this ice maker ever work before, or is it a newly installed maker or a factory installed maker in a new fridge? Have you moved the power switch to on? If yours has an LED power indicator, is it off, blinking or on? Off means there's no power to the maker - you'll need to get the maker powered up before going further (make sure the electrical power connector is mated fully). Blinking means cubes have become stuck in the maker. You'll have to shut the maker off, remove the cubes then power up again. On means it is powered and is working normally. Is the freezer compartment set to maintain a temperature lower than 15 degrees F (-9 C)? The ice maker will not make ice unless the temperature is below 15 F (-9 C). The space under the maker must remain clear of obstructions so that the sweeper arm is not blocked (when blocked indicates a full ice container and will halt ice production until the arm can move freely again). The maker may need as many as 3 cycles (approx 6 hours) before all the air in the ice maker's water lines have been purged completely.

Listen for the solenoid valve to operate. Every couple of hours, this valve should operate and an audible click on and click off heard after a several seconds (as long as set on the ice maker cube size adjustment knob). When this solenoid has clicked on, water should be flowing through the lines and filling the ice maker. If not, there is an obstruction that must be cleared. A dirty or improperly installed filter, pinched line, and even ice can interrupt flow to the ice maker. You might need to remove the ice maker from the freezer to check the water supply line that feeds it for the presence of ice. Melt / clear as needed.

Hooked up water line and ice maker, water working notice maker. Any ideas?


Make sure wire loop extending out from the ice maker over the ice bin is pushed down. Up turns the ice maker off.

Without more info, I can't diagnose further.
Stick finger in ice tray where ice freezes. Is there water in there. No, check solenoid valve and water line to ice maker (kinks). Is there ice cubes in ice tray? Is ice maker pushed fully in? All wires to ice maker on back and underneath connected?

If this information was useful, please select YES to the first two rating questions. Good Luck and thank you!

Water lines i think are ok but cant get water or make ice


Check the following:

See if the fridge has a water filter...it could be plugged and need replacement...check your manual for the location and replacement procedures

Check the inlet water line to the ice maker...it could be frozen...a hair dryer can be used to thaw it out and get the ice make to work again...be careful and don't overheat the ice maker inlet water line.

Make sure the water line is ok and not obstructed or kinked

Check the ice maker water valve to be sure it opens and isn't clogged

Cycle the arm on the ice maker and wait to see if it will make ice again

Lg side by side Ice maker not filling all of the tray/dripping


You may have a restriction in the icemaker.  Remove the icemaker and make sure that there is no ice buildup other than in the cube slots.  Also make sure that the fill tube is clear of any ice obstruction.
