Ice maker -- not all cubes freezing, running water into rear portion of cube storage tray.


Purchase an inexpensive temperature monitor. Check temp in freezer. Ideally, you should have from 0 degrees to 10 degrees in the freezer. The icemaker calls for water at a certain temperature. There may be an issue with the icemaker, which has a "u-shaped" heater underneath the icemaker to loosen the ice prior to dropping ice in the ice bucket. Or, there could be an issue with your freezer control assembly (typically located in the fresh food compartment). Contact an appliance service company.

We had a power outage, after power back up, the fridge is getting super cold, milk is frozen, we make the fridge temp higher, doesn't help


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.

I have a side by side m#5825158271 type 7 it not making as mush ice as it did befor can you help


Check the temp inside the freezer. It needs to be around -10 degrees. If it's above 5 degrees the ice maker will not operate.
This is what it sounds like ot me. The freezer goes into defrost about every 8 to 10 hours. There is a termination thermostat that turns off the defrost heaters once the temp inside the freezer get to a set degree. If it's not working the heaters will stay on the duration the timer is allowing for defrost. This will heat the freezer above the 5 degrees, turning the ice maker off. The ice maker will not start to work again until the temp drops below 5 degrees again therefore it is staying off during the time the temp is above 5 degrees. I feel sure that this is why it's not making as much ice as it was. This may not make any since but I assure you that I work on these things for a living and I have seen this happen many times. If you would like to repair this your self. Reply back and I'll go through it with you step by step.
Please rate this solution if helpful.

I have an Amanda side by side, the fridge temp


Look in the freezer side for a ice buildup on the back wall.
Ice= defrost parts issue.
Check the fan in the freezer. Is it running?
Not running? Could be a defrost thermostat issue or a bad fan motor.

Kenmore side by side - icemaker seems to run too fast because the ice cubes are often hollow and they stick together in large clumps. Everything else in the freezer is frozen solid, so I know the freezer...


IF FREEZER IS A THE CORRECT TEMP/ O-10 DEGREES, THE FREEZER IS NOT THE PROBLEM. THERE IS A THERMOSTAT IN YOUR ICE MAKER, IT IS NOT ADJUSTABLE. IT IS A SMALL BI METAL SWITCH THAT TRIGERS ICE MAKER WHEN IT REACHES ITS PROPER TEMP. THE PROBLEM IS, IT IS TRIGERING IT AT TO LOW OF A TEMP.NOT ALLOWING THE ICE TO FREEZE SOLID. IF YOU CAN HANDLE IT CHANGE BIMETAL SWITCH OR CHANGE ICE MAKER ITSELF.
