Why does my ice maker is frezz up, and will not turn to make ice


I'm having a similar problem. Water freezes in the mold, but thermostat does not heat ice to release ice from mold. I replaced the thermostat and still did not work. I just noticed the plastic around the copper line that touches the mold prongs is melted. I guess it shorted out. You may have the same problem. Time to buy a new ice maker even thought the frig is only 1.5 years old.

Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.You need to replace the fill valve it is leaking and causing the fill tube to freeze. This is common when the valve is going bad

Ice-maker not functioning


Ice maker stopped making ice. For this problem you have check few things. First thing, is the water filling in the ice maker chamber and then ice maker not making ice? Or, the water is not filling in the ice maker chamber so it's not making ice. If the water is not filling in the ice maker chamber then it's clear that ice is not getting made due to no water in the chamber. For no water filling, the problem is either water supply valve turned off so water is not filling. Turn on the water supply and it will fill. But if the water supply is turned on then the other possibility is ice blockage in the water fill tube. There is a tube from which the water runs and enters the ice maker chamber. If this tube is blocked then water will not enter the chamber. The tube needs to be defrosted, by using hair dryer. This procedure melts the ice collected in the tube and water starts running again. But if water fill tube is completely clear and no ice blockage or any other blockage. Then other possibility is water valve at the back of ice maker unit. This water valve is for letting the water in the ice maker. The water valve open only for 7 seconds and in this time the water fills in the ice maker chamber and then water valve closes and the same procedure runs again in the next water filling cycle.------- For your information I will mention that there are two valves. One is the main valve the back of the fridge section. This main valve lets the water enter the refrigerator and other valve is at the back of ice-maker section. This other valve lets the water to enter the ice maker. In most of the cases the fault is water valve at the back of ice maker section. ------------- The other above possibilities which I gave you is water not filling in ice-maker chamber so it's not making ice. But now consider that water is filling in ice maker chamber but it's still not making ice. Then the problem is ice maker unit itself. This unit is controlled by main board. But in most cases if water is filling the ice maker but it's not making ice then its faulty ice maker unit. So see if the problem is water not entering the ice maker then the water fill tube is frosted by ice or the water valve at the back of ice maker is faulty. Replace the valve. ------------

You can get required parts from sears part direct online site or from repairclinic.com site.

This will help. Thanks. Helpmech.

I love my refridgerator except for the fact it doesn't make enough ice.I was wondering if there is a setting to adjust the amount of ice it makes..I had a service man to come out and there is nothing wrong...


mrs. justice u should have a setting knob that says freezer colder and by adjusting that knob a little making the frezzer colder so the ice frezzes faster. the faster it frezzes the faster it will dump making more ice. but if that dont work then that box should be equiped to have the more up to date one that has a fan in the ice maker that makes it colder and makes ice faster.. remeber the colder the faster the ice should make. ok try that. later gator.

Ice maker leaks water into holding container, frezzes up holdeing container, ice wont despence , because its froze


sounds like your ice maker has a degraded coating on the mold that forms the cubes. if you remove it from the freezer, then you can see if the coating is coming off. if so then you need to replace the ice maker.

Icemaker will not make ice


I have the same problem. here is what is happing in the frezzer I have to unplug it let it defrost and I take the back wall apart and the fan and all back there is frozen I put hot water on the frozen parts and then it is good for about 6 mos before I have to do it again. My Daughter has the same problem also the water tube that goes to the ice maker frezzes and untill I get the cube of ice out it will not make ice. make sure you have the drew that holds the ice all the way in.
