SOURCE: Ice maker bin indicator arm is stuck in the bin is full position

You should be able to move it gently to the lower position.  If it doesn't want to move don't force it.  Try shutting the ice maker off in case the arm is frozen in the up position.  After the ice maker defrosts a bit try again to move the arm gently.

Too much ice, maybe the ice maker didn't connect right, the gears moves but the spring inside the ice maker won't move.

SOURCE: auto ice maker

reduce water fill, small adjustment screw on side of power head, clockwise for decrease, maximum one full turn. if that fails, remove i/m and check for cracked mold, fill with water and place on level table under paper towel. if ok, replace module.

Check my solution here. The noisy sound is the swing arm trying to knock out some stuck ice.

Samsung ice maker


See if the stop switch is stuck in the up position; there is a lever over the ice tray that is pushed 'UP' when the tray is full. Pull it down.

No water to ice maker


This could be because the ice is clumped in the ice bin. When the automatic defrost cycle occurs, heat is transferred to the freezer area. This can cause the cubes to melt slightly and refreeze back together. You can take the bin out and give it a good shake, or simply discard the cubes and start over with a fresh batch of ice cubes. By increasing the amount of food in the freezer compartment, you may be able to buffer the heat that comes from the defrost cycle and avoid clumping issues.
If you have a large ice bin and hardly use any ice, it is possible that the cubes have gotten stuck together just from the weight of the cubes on top of others.

Ice maker stopped dispensing


Refrigerator - Icemaker Not Dispensing,or Not Making Ice Check that the feeler arm on the icemaker is in the down position and is not blocked. If the icemaker does not have a feeler arm make sure the icemaker paddle is not blocked under the icemaker. For more information on the causes of new icemakers not making ice. For more information on normal ice production. Side by Side models: The filter may be loaded with sediment that can cause low water pressure. The water pressure must be between 40 and 120 psi. Pressures below 40 psi may cause a malfunction of the icemaker (i.e. producing hollow cubes or no ice production). Test the water pressure: Dispense water from the dispenser into a large measuring cup for 20 seconds. If the measuring cup contains less than 13.5 ounces (400 metric centimeters), the water flow is inadequate. If the amount of water is less than 13.5 ounces then the refrigerator fails the test, remove the filter and test the refrigerator again with the by-pass plug in place. If the refrigerator dispenses the proper amount of water with the by-pass plug in place, then the filter should be replaced. If you no longer have the by-pass plug and it has been over three months since the filter has been replaced, you should replace the filter. If the refrigerator fails the test again and you know you have the proper water pressure in your home, you should call service to check the refrigerator. If the amount of water collected is over 13.5 ounces then the refrigerator passes the test and the dispenser is working correctly. Ice not Dispensing Due To Clumping Ice: Your dispenser may not be dispensing due to clumping ice cubes. The ice cubes in your icemaker may be clumping for a couple of reasons: Low food load: The defrost cycle radiates heat into the freezer. The ice in the freezer will naturally absorb the heat. This will cause the ice to melt slightly during defrost, then eventually freeze together in clumps. Increasing the food load in the freezer will buffer the warmth from the defrost cycle and keeps the ice from melting. Lack of use: When the ice bin is full, the pressure from the weight of the cubes can cause the bottom cubes to fuse and clump. To prevent this from happening, discard the clumped ice and check the bin periodically to ensure the ice is not building up. If you do not use a large amount of ice, move the feeler arm on the icemaker to the up position to turn off the icemaker and stop ice production. For more information on the causes of clumping cubes. If the ice bucket is not seated correctly, ice will not dispense properly. Make sure the ice bucket is in the correct position. Refer to Use & Care manual.

Model KSRS25FGWH01-water is dripping inside the freezer ice bin.


If it overfills and drips, look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water.

If it continuously drips, replace the water inlet valve on the back where the house water supply comes in.

Ice maker doesnt stop making ice


Check with an identical unit to see how that one moves. Yours may be dislocated. The lever arm probably contacts small plastic parts in the timer that could be out of place. Ice makers aren't too tough to take out and check out in a more comfortable work location. Just put a towel to catch screws.

Ice maker makes ice, but also drips water


cbscarter,
This may sound strange but you will find that the mold coating is peeling off of the aluminum mold. This causes the water to wick (climb) the loose coating and up over the top, leaking out making an ice clump on the ice maker and clumps ice in the container together. It would be easy enough for the average person to replace the ice make. Due to its age that would be smarter to replace than to repair the old one. It is a Whirlpool part #4317943 and comes with some instructions.

If this helped please rate me good, supertechks

Ice Maker -cube selection


Banjo, pull the ice bin out. You will see a rod on the back of it. See if it flips up and down by hand. This rod does the switching from crushed to cube in the bin. In back of the freezer where the rod inserts there will be a cradle that pulls up by a solenoid. With the bin out and the door switch held shut have someone press the ice lever and see if the soleniod is pulling the cradle up. If not the next logical move would be to see if the solenoid is getting 120V when the lever is depressed. If it is and is not moving, there's your problem. Check the bin first and see if it is not all clumped up with ice. Catriver...post back
