Recently got water hooked up to my PCF23NGTDBB fridge. Water dispenser works but icemaker is not working. I can feel the first batch of ice in the tray, but the ice seems to be stuck in it. What do I do? I have turned the icemaker off and back on when the green light starts blinking. I have checked that the dispenser is not locked. The water filter seems OK. I have had the fridge for 2-1/2 years but just connected to the water after a recent repiping was needed to fix the water supply line to the fridge.

The icemaker could be frozen where the water supply comes into the icemaker this sometimes happens if the water was recently shut off or you had low water pressure. Unplug the fridge and try using a hairdryer to defrost where the waterline comes into the freezer. I would assume you already checked to see the icemaker was turned on and the bail was in the down position. If you did All things i mentioned plug in the fridge and test if it still won't make ice afterwards you will need to replace the icemaker. The replacement should come with instructions.
Hi, The first step you need to do is to turn the water off to the refrigerator so it quits making until you get it fixed. If your fridge has the control boards in each side of the freezer cabinet that controls the icemaker, then you have a failed board. If you have a standard icemaker with the metal shutoff arm then you have a failed motor module in the icemaker. You can remove the icemaker and unplug the wiring connector from it so you can leave the water on to the dispenser.

I had a Whirlpool Model GD5SHAXNS in which the icemaker quit working about the same time (3 years old). I had water out the dispenser, I found that it was the icemaker itself failed not calling for water to fill it. I replaced it with a icemaker on-line for about $100 and problem fixed. I have been told his is a common problem with the icemaker in this model ref.
I recently found out that the water supply lines are coiled up inside behind the frige on the refrigerator side moving the unit will cause those coiled up lines to shift to the freezer side of the unit, causing a freeze up,take the cardboard lower back off and move those lines further away from the freezer side of the unit, as one of those coiled up lines are to chill the water for the dispenser and the other is supply for the icemaker, this should fix your problem, becareful not to move them too far away from the freezer side as they are meant to chill the water for the dispenser
