SOURCE: icemaker want stop making ice

The quick answer 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.
Post back if you need instructions on reparing it.

SOURCE: icemaker doesn't make ice

If there are ice cubes in the icemaker sitting there waiting to be dumped then the icemaker is bad. If the icemaker is dry then it could be the water valve is bad.

SOURCE: ice maker not working ; water dispenser ok

The reason could be several different possibilities. the water control valve for the ice maker no longer works or one of the many components inside the ice maker is needing replace or adjusted. Go to link below and enter model ED5VHGXM into model search. Click on photo #12 ice maker and you get a breakdown of of all the parts. Let me know, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: Ice maker not working in side by side whirpool refrigerator

Who replaced a motor in an ice maker? There are no motors to replace. Demand your money back and buy a new ice maker at your local appliance parts store or on line.

SOURCE: Icemaker not working- red light flashes constantly

The red light should flash twice , pause then flash twice constantly . If you close the flap on the left side , then the light should go off . This shows the optics (ice maker cut off ) are good .

Check the black tube ( fill tube ) , which puts water into the ice maker , to see if it is iced inside . If so , then the water valve behind the refrig is bad . It seeps into the tube and freezes , blocking the water flow .

Pour about 2/3 cup of water into the ice maker . If it freezes and dumps , then the water valve needs replaced . If it doesn't dump , and stays frozen in the ice maker , replace the ice maker . Also , make sure the coils under the front of the refrig are clean , as this will cause warmer temp in the freezer and the ice maker needs 5 degrees to operate .

Icemaker doesn't work


If the ice maker is not filling, you will need to replace the "water inlet valve" on the back of the unit. Here is the part you need to order.

Ice maker doesn't work


Testing the ice maker:
As far as the smaller line (1/4") you have to manually advance the ice maker and wait for it to call for water with the 1/4" line disconnected from the valve. For whirlpool and its subsidaries,you can do this by getting a jumper wire, removing the cover of icemaker, which you jsut grab and pull off, and using the jumper wire insert one end of the wire into the cirle marked m and the other in the cicle marked n. Leave there until you hear a click and sometimes see a little spark behind the modular head wheel. For GE, you turtn the ice maker off, wait about a minute then turn back on, water should automatically shoot water in the icemaker. That will tell you the water valve is good and icemaker is bad, or the ice maker is good and the valve is bad if no water. Also if you see ice in the maker that hasn't dumper and the teeth of the icemaker are facing any direction other than two o clock position, the icemaker is bad. Also check the fill tube to be sure the no ice is blocking water from coming in.

My Frigidaire model Frs26zgg side-by-side doesn't deliver water to the ice maker. What is the likely faulty component?


Note that the temperature in the freezer must be below 10 degrees F for the icemaker to cycle. The icemaker line is the smaller line (1/4") located in the back of the machine that runs from the valve to the filll tube. To test the valve and icemaker you have to manually advance the ice maker and wait for it to call for water with the 1/4" line disconnected from the valve. You can do this by getting a jumper wire, removing the cover of icemaker, which you jsut grab and pull off, and using the jumper wire insert one end of the wire into the cirle marked "M" and the other in the cicle marked "N". Leave there until you hear a click and sometimes see a little spark behind the modular head wheel. Also if you see ice in the maker that hasn't dumper and the teeth of the icemaker are facing any direction other than two o clock position, the icemaker is bad. Before doing any of the above though check the fill tube to be sure the no ice is blocking water from coming in.

Ice-maker stopped working


Pour Water manually in Ice maker and wait for ejection. If it ejects then the water mixer valve
underneath the rear of the Ref is defective. If it doesn't eject then the icemaker itself is the fault.

Ice maker has stopped working.


Check Temp inside freezer. It has to be down to about 10 or 15 degrees
See if water is in icemaker.
Pour water in Ice Maker and wait to see if it ejects.
If it ejects theb you need to replace water valve in rear bottom of fridge(Its the part that
attaches to water line out of wall)
If it doesn't eject then it is a faulty Ice Maker.
Thank you for using fixya

We have a whirlpool refrigerator model number ED25PQXNN01 and the icemaker does not work...have already replaced valve and icemaker...still does not work. Please help


that model number doesn't come up?did you check the fill line that fills the ice maker to see if it's froze up?get a hair dryer and a screw driver,stick the screw driver into the fill line,you might have to remove the ice maker,if the screw driver hits ice blow the hot air into the hole and keep the screw driver in the line,the screw driver will heat up and help get the ice out.you can pull the fridge out and heat the fill line with the hair dryer on the back of the machine where the fill line connects in the back up top.if there's no ice there make sure water is coming to the fridge,also you can jump out the ice maker to manually check it to see what's happening to it,i'll look up a link and send it to you,just copy and paste it and it will show you how to jump out the ice maker and how to jump out the water valve,you'll have to pop off the front white cover of the ice maker,get a piece of wire to stick into the holes to jump it out.
