Re: icemaker not working
Most ice makers will take a few hours till it cycles. the t-stat has to get cold first but you can advance it but removing the cover and take out the Philips screw holding the center gear, now turn the ice rod clockwise till u see the brass gear start to turn now put it back together. it will fill with water and in about a hour or so drop some ice

You are looking at a bad selector switch and or the door switches that activate the auger to push the ice out. You would be looking at replacing the whole control if you need the ice to come out of the door.
I would first try the simple unplugging and plugging back in, sometimes resetting the unit can help clear it up.
Dirt in body of icemaker water supply valve. OR. Ice maker timer stuck when it selected "add water to icemaker. The first solution is simple, change icemaker water filter and disassimble valve to clean. The second is simple, buy a new icemaker.
Hello Raymond, In a most of cases if the filter were clogged it would affect BOTH the icemaker and the in door water dispenser,its never a bad idea to replace espically if they is a foul odor or taste in the ice or water. The water valve on the back is going to the most likely problem if the in door dispenser works yet the icemaker does not,a lot of times when the water valve is bad when its supposed to be fully closed cutting all water flow into icemaker it stays open a wee bit allowing water to seep through it causing the hose that connects to it ,running up the back wall into the icemaker to freeze up at the top where the tube enters into the freezer,that tube needs to be thawed, and to prevent it from freezing in the future the water valve needs to be replaced.
Goodluck,i hope this helps you to fix your icemaker, Gene
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.
No, but it is easy to disconnect icemaker. Unplug behind icemaker (remove or loosen screws to see plug. Put tape over jack in freezer to keep moisture out. Put icemake back when ready to connect water.
You need to have the icemaker assembly in the unit. Now unless you are talking a clrco2075 you have to hookup the water. If its a regular icemaker then by lifting the arm everything should work. The icemaker has sensors in it and thats why you need the icemaker in place. What model do you have? Just to be sure, some models you have to program the icemaker to stay off.
Give it some more time. The icemaker has an internal thermostat and it will not come back on until it reaches 16 degrees. It takes a while after it gets warm. if it doesn't start functioning in a few more hours you may have other problems. Hope this helps
If you look at the icemaker, you will see a metal wire which runs along the side of the unit. If you manually swing the wire arm up until it locks in place (about 90 degree swing from the normal straight down position) you will have turned the icemaker off. (Alternatively you can unplug the electrical plug from the icemaker which goes into the freezer wall.)
If the icemaker is not turned off, it will periodically cycle, which turns on the ice cube mode release heater during it's cycle, putting unnecessary heat into your freezer. You do not need to plug the ice maker supply line. This should be a Fix-Ya for your refrig.
First of all you need make sure that your freezer is freezing enough. Sometimes everything will seem to be freezing ok, but it won’t be cold enough to make the icemaker work. The best way is to squeeze your ice cream, if you have any that is.
Then you need to make sure that the ice level sensing arm is in the down/on position.
If all of this checks out ok, then you need to make sure that nobody turned off the water supply that is sometimes located under the kitchen sink. Also make sure that the ice bucket is positioned properly so as to trigger the ice bucket sensing switch.
If all of this checks out ok, let me know and I can guide you through an icemaker diagnosis by forcing it into a harvest mode.
