We have a whoolpool stainless steel side by side fridge. We noticed a couple of days ago that the ice maker isn't making ice. What should we look at to see what isn't working that should be working?

Hi there,

you need to detemine if the problem is ice production or just the dispenser.

if you have ice in the bin, then the icemaker is making ice but the dispenser is not working. you could have an ice cube jammed in the mechanism. also check the ice lever for any breaks.

if you have no ice in the ice bin, then the icemaker is not working at all, in which case, i would recommend replacing it.

How do I shut down the water flow to the ice maker


There are three ways.
1. Shut water off to the fridge via plumbing valve.
2. Lift arm on ice maker or use on/off switch depending on ice maker model.
3. Unplug ice maker wiring harness. It won't be able to call for water.
It depends on why you want the water off. A make and model of the fridge would help so I can give you a more specific answer.

GE Fridge water dispenser working but not the ice


Yes you most likely have a defective dual water control valve. Look around the inside of the refrigerator for a model number.

  • Top Freezer
  • Bottom Freezer
    Once you find the model number I will be able to tell you what part number the dual dual water control valve is or if your ice maker assist you in testing ice maker. If ice Maker is empty try filling with tap water to top edges of ice maker, allow water to freeze and if the ice drops into the ice bin but does not refill with water automatically I would say that the dual water control valve will need replaced. If your ice maker has old shrinking ice from a few days ago it will point to an ice maker problem.

    Freezer won't reached desired temp or make ice


    Most definately you do. somehow air got in while you were away. 12 hour defrost with doors open will help.(insulation in side by side normally thick).Had one like that approx. 2 months ago but fridge was not well treated and they damaged rubber seal at water and ice dispencer area.

    Ice maker overfilling


    OK i took a look at the ice maker. this has a shut off arm. i am guessing it always shut off automatically when you 1st had it right? but now it just makes too much ice. does it still do it if you lift the shut off arm up? if you lift it up and still makes to much ice then replace ice maker. (wait a couple of days)
    if it stops making ice then just shut it off every other day thanks

    SAMSUNG RS253BAWW NOT WORKING


    the ice maker wont cycle untill the temp of the ice is around 10 degrees so if the freezer is at 15 or 20 due to some other malfunction then you will see the maker full of ice but it wont harvest and make another batch. so you could have a sensor bad, control malfunction, refrigeration issue, compressor, defrost system malfunction(you mentioned ice build up)

    Ice maker isn't making ice...


    check the white plastic lever inside the ice box. it needs to be in the down position to make ice and is probably stuck.
