Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

My lever on the water is lose or wearing out. Even when you shut the door it bounces enough for a couple drops of water to come out. The ice lever is not used near as much still stiff.

SOURCE: Ice maker not dumping ice

Make sure the freezer is at least 17 degrees or colder (colder is better). If you have a square cover on the end of the ice maker see if you can pull it off and press on the gear face (don't turn just press). That may clean the electrical contact springs and get it working again. Basically if ya got water, 17 degrees or colder you will get ice. Other than that the ice maker motor module is likely bad (broken gear, etc.). Pretty common.

SOURCE: Ice/Water Dispenser in Freezer door not working

Sounds like a frozen waterline. I fixed mine by leaving the light on the dispenser on. It took about 6 hrs, but the little heat from the light bulb was enough to defrost the water line.

SOURCE: in door water and ice cube not working

Water dispenser is a simple touch switch in door energizing a solenoid water valve behind ventilation grate above refrigerator. Water tube runs down into and ends at ice dispenser chute. Should hear solenoid click at top of fridge when activate water touch switch. Can unhook discharge side of solenoid valve temporarily to prove water output. If water dispenser tube acts blocked it could be frozen where it ends-look up the hole at the bottom of refrigerator control buttons.
Ice maker is totally different system. No clicking when push ice button but ice in bulk tray may mean the simplest of malfunctions: Ice bin not pushed in the last half inch if ice auger not lined up with drive pegs. There are hidden switches behind ice bin that need to be engaged or nothing will happen in the ice maker: no auger noise, no clicking, no new ice making. Ice bin will be flush with sheet metal if it is in the right spot. Also plastic juice rack won't hang properly if ice bin not pushed in all the way.

SOURCE: Ice Maker frost and freeze where ice drops into refrigerator door

You need a service guy to look at it. It could be water leaking or a simple case that the flap isnt sealing and the ice melts and then freezes the flap open

Ice and water keeps coming out


Cup lever isn't returning to the off or close position completely. Suggest checking for rusty spring, dirty parts restricting lever and other parts there from moving freely. Could be the switches are worn out as well. Dis-assemble and clean all parts and inspect or replace old worn switches. Inspect ice drop/ flap door for mildew, sticky residue from drinks and ice build up.

Ice maker not working just changed the filter water works but ice maker not working


Check the plastic lever on the door. It usually moves closed when the door is shut to turn ice maker on. The lever can freeze and stop the ice maker.

Can't remove ice storage bin from Kitchenaid side by side


This units are prone to do this. Best way for me to tell you is to work ice bucket side to side. Then shut the freezer door and switch between the cube and crushed ice. Tap the dispenser lever just long enough to engage motor. Basically you are rocking the coupling back and fourth in the auger assembly. Will come loose but may take a bit.

No longer making ice


Hello, Is the freezer cold enough? Should be close to 10 degrees.
Is there water or ice in the ice mold? If not put water in it and see if it dumps the ice after it’s frozen. If there is ice, lift the cut off arm and let it drop to see if it will start.
If it does dump the ice but don’t refill with 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.

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.

Thanks

KitchenAid ice dispenser tray is dry - not working


Put some water in the ice mold is what I would try. wait and see if the ice maker harvest a batch. If it does drop a batch but no more then the water valve is probably shot. The ice maker itself controls the water. It does this by filling the ice mold for 7.5 seconds. Here is your Ice maker repair manual and some repair photos along with a pictorial which snows how to check the water valve.

It makes no ice cubes, but water still comes through door dispenser. Why? There appears to be no water getting to the ice making mechanism, however water is still coming out the door dispenser.
