The icemaker in my Bauknecht KGN 7010 F/F has stopped making ice

The water supply has stopped supplying the icemaker; the mechanism all seems to work ok (I can manually feed water into the freezing ice-making module and when it has formed ice the mechanism tips it into the hopper; But its the water supply to the ice module that has stopped for some reason.) Is this a valve; a relay,microswitch or a blockage problem?

The water comes from a tank which I believe supplies both chilled water (filtered) as well as the ice-maker. The water side of it works fine

First you need to find out if the lie is blocked. Disconnected water feed and try to run water through it into a bucket or sink. If you get water it is a valving problem. Also make sure the filter is clear.

Have viking side by side referagator , freezer model # ddrb304. I installed copper line to ice maker yesterday It is not making ice. Checked that water supply is on. Appreciate any suggestions Lou


make sure you have strong water pressure to the frig.
Do the ice maker have a shutoff arm? or a shutoff switch? either way make sure it is on. by now there should be water in the icemaker tray. if not then manually pour 1/2 cup of water into the icemaker. if it does make ice then replace the water fill valve.
if there is ice still in the ice maker tray you still have to check the water fill valve before we can say the icemaker doesn't work.
need a meter to check the continunity of the water vavle. if the valve is open repalce valve, if there is continunity the the valve is good.
hope this is helpful. if you cant do this ask a friend who is an electrician to help you

Icemaker makes shells. Outside is frozen but


Hollow cubes are caused by not having enough water in the ice mold. Fill it up manually by pouring water in it and see how the cubes turn out.
look for an adjustment behind the plastic endcover with a +/- on it. - is less water. + is more water.


Try swapping the wires on the dual water inlet valve. Then try the water dispenser. The water should go to the ice maker. This will tell you weather or not the ice maker valve is working and if the line is clear.

There is a screen filter before the water inlet valve in the water line. It can get partially stopped up with sediment blocking water flow.

My Frigidaire side by side is not making ice. (Model GLRS267ZAW1)It goes through the cycle but no water is getting into the icemaker. I can pour water in to the icemaker and it makes the ice and dumps it....


The water inlet valve on the back of the unit where the water supply comes in can have a slow leak and will cause ice to buildup and block the fill tube. Disconnect the ice maker line from the valve and watch to see if it has a slow drip. It doesn’t take much to eventually block the fill tube.

GE side by side refrig/freezer Mod. TFH24JWTA WH. Ice maker stopped working, stop/start wire is down (on). Get water through the door, but not sure if it goes to the ice maker. Ice maker is empty of water....


usually yes if no water to icemaker could be water valve solenoid. . first you can remove cover on icemaker and put the unit thru a test mode. find the plastic or medal cam in center of icemaker head when cover is removed., theis is a flateblade screw center get a small screwdriver and turn screw counterclockwise for about a 1/4 of a turn , icemaker will start cycling if icemaker ok then it will go througha cycle let it do its thing usually a few minutes for it to cycle, if fills you may have a bad icemaker, if no fill then valve may be bad. make sure you have good water pressure from your water supply that can cause icemaker problems.

Ice maker is overflowing


Older icemakers have a bar that drops from above your ice bin; once the bin is full the bar is raised and trips turning the ice maker off so that it won't dump. If your's is this style, try manually pushing the free end of the bar upward so that it locks in the upward position. Newer ice makers with the ice bin in the door have a small panel that moves to the open position when the door opens and closes when the door closes. Mine also includes an optical sensor that is visible when this panel is in the closed position. Try placing a non-clear tape over the optical sensor (don't know if that will work or not but worth a shot). If effective in stopping the ice flow then call a repairman. If none of this works, turn off the water supply coming out of the wall to your freezer.

Ice maker seems to be dripping water onto ice in ice container


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.

Watch it when it fills with water. The fill tube could also be stopped up with ice. The water inlet valve on the back of unit opens when the ice maker needs water. If the valve doesn't seal good because of sediment or wear it will continue to drip and when the water reaches the ice maker supply tube it will freeze. You can take the water line off the valve and watch to see if it drips.

Frigidaire won't make ice & dispenses only about 4 oz. cold water


Water frozen in the freezer supply line - you need to thaw out the freezer. About six hours, door open, turn freezer OFF. You'll need a cooler with dry ice for your frozen food. 99% certain it'll work after that.
