cycle is, fill cycle for 1 minute first. If there is not water entering the unit when first turned on, look for that issue. Water turned off, water valve not working or some restriction, clogged water filters, etc. That is got to happen first. Don't over look the bin stat being bad. Nothing happens if teh bin stat is bad. It sends voltage to the control board that runs the unit.
Bonjour, Ice makers can clog. The water valve can stick open or closed or even not work at all. The water fill nozzle can clog with ice or food. If the unit has been moved the water line could be kinked or the water filter may be clogged. Maybe the water valve for the ice maker water line is turned off. Is there one under the sink? Inside most ice makers there is a thermostat that tells the ice maker that the water is frozen and it's time to dump the ice cubes. That starts a geared motor running to dump out the cubes. And in some cases a mold heater is turned on to help break the ice cubes loose. A lot of ice makers have a cam attached to the motor that turns with the shaft. When the ice cubes are gone the cam starts a timer to refill the ice maker with fresh water to make some more ice cubes. Most "fill" cycles of ice makers are "timed fill". The fill cycle has to start and stop to get fresh water into the ice maker. There may be another thermostat that monitors the air temperature where the ice maker is mounted. If that thermostat thinks the air is not cold enough to freeze water nothing happens. If all the steps don't happen at the right time no ice cubes are made.
You have a bad water valve or the fill tube where the water comes into the ice maker is frozen full of ice. Check the second problem first then if the fill tube is clear the valve needs to be replaced.
Follow the steps mentioned below to solve the problem:
First remove the ice bin and look inside the mold of the ice maker to see if it is full of ice. If the ice sensing arm is down ( on position) and the ice maker is full of ice, there is a failure inside the ice maker and the ice maker should be replaced.
If there is no ice in the ice maker, look at the fill tube on the rear of the ice maker. If the fill tube is frozen up the ice maker can't fill. You can defrost the fill tube with a hair dryer.
The water valve on the rear of the refrigerator supplies water to the water dispenser and the ice maker. Since the water dispenser is working, the only line that could be blocked runs up the back of the cabinet and attaches to the fill tube for the ice maker. The water valve could be bad and not sending water to the ice maker.
If the fill tube freezes again you should replace the water valve.
Hope this helps.
Try and check the water valve for proper operation.
then check and see if there is a kind of ice blocking the fill tube to the ice maker.
there maybe a reset button on the ice maker that just might reset the unitif nothing else is wrong then you need to replace the ice maker. there might be a cover on the front of the ice maker that you can remove and youmight be able to advance the ice maker manuallyby using a screwdrive to turn the gear clockwise just until it starts to turn on it own and see what happens if you can advance it by hand
Yes, you've covered everything but the water valve. Really nothing left.
As it's the most common item to fail, I'm sure you need to replace it.
......As long as your sure the water is getting to the machine with decent volume, and the ice maker electrical plug is inserted firmly.
Most likely your water control valve is defective on the side for the ice maker. There are times that there is a slow leak and water freezes in the fill tube that fills the ice maker. That can be fixed by defrosting the fill tube with a hair dryer until the water valve is replaced. The next like ly problem would be a defective ice maker and sometimes there are problems getting parts for the LG brand. Do this, fill the ice maker with tap water turn on and let freeze. If it drops the ice the ne dual water control valve needs replaced. If it does nothing then the ice maker is the problem. I will be back soon with part numbers and where to find the parts you need. Try the test and if I am helpful please rate my solution, Thanks, Sea breeze
you p robably have a frozen fill tube for the icemaker. coming inot the rear is a tube for dispensing water into the icemaker. check this for ice if it is frozen you can thaw it out by using a blow dryer to melt theice out. on some models this tube comes thru the back wall of the freezer for cross the freezer icemakers there is a black tube that comes out of the ceiling. if you have any questions please post here and I'll get back to ya thanks Peyton
