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.

It's very possible that the water inlet valve isn't cutting off completely. I had that to happen on mine.

Icemaker not working


The ice maker valve is a dual one. with 2 solenoids. One solenoid operates the water and the other the ice maker. So if the water works that don't mean the ice maker supply is ok. The ice maker itself controls the flow of water. So if the water valve is ok then the ice maker is faulty. I have repair photos HERE

Kenmore side by side icemaker bin on door, 6mths old, water is only filling part of the ice maker and those cubes are not very large, also changed water filter in Nov and red light is on again to change...


Concur with the water valve solenoid; have had this experience several times with two way and even three way valves. Pull the unit and remove the mixing solenoid after the water is shut off. Sometimes a simple good cleaning and reassembly can make a difference but a replacement is the best answer. Your water dispersion is timed by the solenoid to fill the icemaker. Ergo, the water being dispensed at both ice AND drinking should flow at 1 ounce per second, optimally. The filter issue could indicate the presence of hard water debris already in the system and you'll need to trace that all the way back to the plumbing valve. If it's a needle tap, remove it and plumb in a good valve, I hate those things.

Icemaker


Assuming everything is hooked up, and the water valve is in the on position, you might just try replacing the water filter. It filters the water that is used for the ice as well as the drinking water. If the filter is clogged you will get no ice and the flow of drinking water will be greatly reduced.

Not makeing ice , defrosted frezzer, got drinking water, took back off by water lines, brown sylonied not getting power too send water up. what is wrong or were to from here


That is a water valve that supplies water to the icemaker and water dispenser. The icemaker is what energizes the valve and sends water to the icemaker. Change out your icemaker or you can just replace the module on the icemaker.

BCM-95 Icemaker Was working fine until we moved Water does not go in..we have changed the water value and it still does not work.


fi you are using a percing valve you need to change it to a regular 1/2 by 1/4 compression vlve,, go to a half inch cold water line cut a tee in the line install a 1/2 out let pipe fot the ice maker, then install your valve run a 1/4in line to the ice maker, you shoud have no rblems,, it has to have volume with water supply in order to work, a percing valve is just that, it has a needle on the end you clamp it to the pi[e scre in the "t" handle till it perces the pipe, then back it off to open the water suply alot of times this is not enough to supply the water for the ice maker,,

Icemaker not working


Ok, check the temperature to make sure it is on the factory settings. if the temp is set below the factory settings, this will freeze the assembly, in return, not allowing the ice maker to initiate the ice makign procedure properly. if the temp is set to factory settings and the water lines and assembly isnt frozen, thsi will confirm a fualt within the inlet water valve assembly. you will need to replace the water valve assemb ly in this case.

Maytag ice maker


ok first the dispencer doesnt affect ice production in any way onle diapencing so for get it the most common promblems will be the filter or the water valves on the back of the unit water and ice are on two different valves so because one works dont mean the other does also check the icemaker fill tube to see if its frozen a leaking icemaker water valve will cause it to freeze im also going to send you the procedure for checking the icemakermoudle its self do this after checking everything else remove the front plastic cover on the icemaker and you will see a bunch of little holes make a jumper wire out #10 or 12 house wire strip about 1/4 inch off the ends an insert in the holes marked t&h this will start a test cycle make sure you hold the plastic insulation so you don't get bit if the ice maker starts cycling remove the wire and watch for it to stop listen for the icemaker valve to open if the ice maker finishes and the valve didn’t fill replace the water valves if the icemaker doesnt cycle and you may have to kind of twist the jumper back and forth to get it to make contact depending on the gauge you used then replace the ice maker motor module if you hear the valve open and the ice maker doesnt fill check for a frozen ice fill tube that should do it
