Ice maker still not working

Ok, so I went and bought a new module/motor. It came with a new tray. I installed it and ran it through a test cycle. Still the tray does not twist through its entire spectrum of travel. Maybe I dont have enough power coming to the motor? Is there a relay that you know of, or some sort of converter that supplies the 12v power this thing needs to run? Is that even a possibility of not getting quite enough power? There has got to be something I'm missing. Maybe the cycle should pause at the point it does for however long, I going to leave it be for a while and see if it eventually dumps the ice. -Thank You

    The part number on the motor assembly I bought is DA97-00258C. It cost me about $75, I saved a little money buying it locally but you can also get one here:

    This assembly is the 7 cube tray that produces cubes that look similar to little footballs or something cut in half. Very small unit. I understand it is NOT the most common thing seen. I mention these things, because there is no picture at the link.

    Re: ice maker still not working

    Flayel, there was a service flash on this ice-maker. ASC20060525001. Has to do with the fill tube freezing up and the tray hanging up. As the ice tray twist to harvest, it gets hung up on the tube and is pulled from the mount position. They revised the fill tube, part number DA63-02928A. Now Im not saying this is your problem, but it's worth taking a look at. back.

    My ice maker has ice in the tray but not dropping in Ben,it is a kfil27cxmso there is a lite that sends a beam across ben ,how do I check to see if the bulb is blown or working, gk

    Hello George;

    My name is Peter. I am a retired field service technician.

    I live in Baltimore, Maryland, USA.

    All ice makers work in the same way.

    Your fill cycle is working fine. You have a thermostat in your ice maker which tells your ice maker control module (Computer) that the ice cubes are frozen and ready for harvest. Then, then control module tells the cube tray heater to turn on for so many seconds, followed by the control module to activate the harvesting motor.

    So, your ice maker either has a bad thermostat, heater or motor.

    The beam across your freezer section is a safety device. On the right hand side is the transmitter. On the left hand side is the receiver with a plastic flapper. When you close the door the flapper closes and completes the signal to discharge ice. When you open the door the flapper pops out blocking the signal.

    Kenmore WR30X0318 Ice Maker Stopped Making Ice

    The ice maker uses a internal thermostat that starts the cycle of dropping the ice and refilling with tap water. If your water control valve works filling the ice maker then the problem is the ice maker itself that will need replaced. Unfortuantly the ice maker you have has no rebuildable parts and will need to be replace with a=> WR30X10093 Ice Maker Assembly

    Or here=> WR30X10093 Ice Maker Let me know if you have questions, Thanks Sea Breeze

    there is a micro switch in the ice maker motor module that shuts power off to the ice-maker water valve when the ice maker is full but i rarely see them go bad this is the easy way to deal with it pull the unit out unplug both the valves and turn the water on a sec if its running in the ice maker with the valves are unplugged then replace the valves if its not replace the ice-maker motor module

    Fridge freezer door ice maker

    the ice maker controls the seloniod the icemaker wire arm must be all the way down .just because the seloniod test good doesnt mean the valve seat isnt stuck the water valves open by your house water pressure if your filter is dirty this can also lower the pressure if the icemaker module is bad this also can cause it if you pull the front of the ice-maker off you will se a bunch of holes if you get a piece of 10 Gage house strip about 1/4 inch off either side and insert it into the holes marked t and h that will test cycle the ice maker they will be close together don't get shocked if the ice maker cycles and doesnt fill and the ice maker fill tube isn't frozen replace the water valve if the ice-maker doesn't cycle replace the brown motor module

    Ice Maker Overflowing

    i would recommend changing the water valves as they may be sticking or leaking now you can take the icemaker loose get a small baby bottle short the terminals to cycle water fill catch it with the bottle and see how much water it dumps should be about 4 ounces if the valve leaks will over fill the ice maker over a period of time say the valve is leaking a few drops at a time and the bail arm has the icemaker shut off because its touching ice in the bin but the water just keeps dripping down the fill tube till it runs over did you replace the whole icemaker or just the motor module
