Hello Raymond, In a most of cases if the filter were clogged it would affect BOTH the icemaker and the in door water dispenser,its never a bad idea to replace espically if they is a foul odor or taste in the ice or water. The water valve on the back is going to the most likely problem if the in door dispenser works yet the icemaker does not,a lot of times when the water valve is bad when its supposed to be fully closed cutting all water flow into icemaker it stays open a wee bit allowing water to seep through it causing the hose that connects to it ,running up the back wall into the icemaker to freeze up at the top where the tube enters into the freezer,that tube needs to be thawed, and to prevent it from freezing in the future the water valve needs to be replaced.
Goodluck,i hope this helps you to fix your icemaker, Gene
First check to make sure the icemaker is on. Most icemakers have what looks like a wire that extends to the right. Down is on, up is off. If yours does not have this, there might be an on off switch on the icemaker itself. If the wire (bale) is on, or the switch is on, then the icemaker is defective, unless the freezer is too warm. Icemakers have a thermostat in them that will not let them operate if the freezer is too warm. Sometimes that thermostat will not activate until the freezer is 15 degrees.
You will have to determine whether the problem is due to no water getting to the icemaker or a control problem in the icemaker unit.
There is a water valve near the bottom of the refrigerator where water from the outside source enters the refrigerator. This valve sends water to the icemaker (and probably the water dispenser) when the refrigerator controls call for water. These valves can malfunction, and the water lines can get blocked.
The other possibility is that something inside the icemaker controls has malfunctioned, and it is not calling for water.
I have run into this before and found it very helpful to re-level the refrigerator. By leaning the fridge back toward the wall about an inch helped keep the water and ice in the tray. Remember to remove items that block air flow in the freezer. Remove the ice bin and clean it then start over with the fridge leaning back a little. Hope this helps.
you may have a kink in the water line leading to the icemaker. the leak is due to warm water entering the icemaker itself. i would also check the water valve in the icemaker itself and ice actuators or paddles to any breakage.
No it should take about 24 hrs to get a full bin of ice. The most common problems with this style icemaker is the fill tube freezes which they have a replacement heated fill tube or the board on your freezer wall that pass a light through your ice bin to tell if its full or not stops working
