Hi,If it was working and stopped,the solenoid on the back is not working or the ice maker is not calling for water.(check the solenoid first)
If it hasn't worked before,check to make sure the water line is attached to the rear of the fridge and make sure the water is turned on to it.
Please rate this solution.

Here is what I would do:I would put some water into the ice maker and wait. If it kicks a batch out, I would replace the watervalve. I would locate the water line going under the rear of the ice box and shut down the water. I would gently remove and replace the valve and snug up the connections, check for leaks and wait and see if the ice starts back in production. if no ice I would then replace the ice maker which is easier still than replacing the water valve but a bit more exspensive. Since you want to got the cheapest route the water valve would be the start.

Ice maker stopped making ice. Water line is hooked up and working. Just won't eject ice


Ice maker stopped making ice. For this problem you have check few things. First thing, is the water filling in the ice maker chamber and then ice maker not making ice? Or, the water is not filling in the ice maker chamber so it's not making ice. If the water is not filling in the ice maker chamber then it's clear that ice is not getting made due to no water in the chamber. For no water filling, the problem is either water supply valve turned off so water is not filling. Turn on the water supply and it will fill. But if the water supply is turned on then the other possibility is ice blockage in the water fill tube. There is a tube from which the water runs and enters the ice maker chamber. If this tube is blocked then water will not enter the chamber. The tube needs to be defrosted, by using hair dryer. This procedure melts the ice collected in the tube and water starts running again. But if water fill tube is completely clear and no ice blockage or any other blockage. Then other possibility is water valve at the back of ice maker unit. This water valve is for letting the water in the ice maker. The water valve open only for 7 seconds and in this time the water fills in the ice maker chamber and then water valve closes and the same procedure runs again in the next water filling cycle.------- For your information I will mention that there are two valves. One is the main valve the back of the fridge section. This main valve lets the water enter the refrigerator and other valve is at the back of ice-maker section. This other valve lets the water to enter the ice maker. In most of the cases the fault is water valve at the back of ice maker section. ------------- The other above possibilities which I gave you is water not filling in ice-maker chamber so it's not making ice. But now consider that water is filling in ice maker chamber but it's still not making ice. Then the problem is ice maker unit itself. This unit is controlled by main board. But in most cases if water is filling the ice maker but it's not making ice then its faulty ice maker unit. So see if the problem is water not entering the ice maker then the water fill tube is frosted by ice or the water valve at the back of ice maker is faulty. Replace the valve. ------------But if ice is getting made in the ice tray,but the ice is not ejecting out then there is blockage to the ice ejecting blade.May be some ice is got stuck below inside.Clear all ice frost collected under the ice chamber.And then see.---------------

Ice maker does not work


Hi ndfi,

If your ice maker wont work, it is often due to a defrost problem. If something is going on inside the freezer and the temperature is too warm, No Ice production. The ice maker needs to be at a certain point or temperature to make ice. Try putting a thermostat inside the freezer to see what the temperature is. It should be at least Zero. If not, turn the temperature of your refrigerator to the next coldest setting inside the freezer. Let it go for a day and see if the machine starts to make ice. Here are additional steps that you may apply on this issue.

1. The Fill tube for the Ice Maker may be froze. There is a tube that runs up the back wall of your fridge and enters the cabinet through a hole right behind the ice maker. If you look at the ice machine inside your freezer you will notice a tube entering it from the rear wall. This is the tube. Inspect the tube carefully with a flashlight to see if it's blocked with ice. If so, there's your problem. Use a hairdryer to thaw it out and your machine will be making ice.

2. If the tube feeding the ice maker is solid round. Like a paper towel roll. Cut a **** along the top of it to prevent it from freezing up again.

3. Check your Water valve for any loose or bad connections. On some refrigerator style ice makers you can easily check the valve using the hole in the front of the module.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Ice maker is not working


ok one of the first steps is to make sure your getting water inside the ice maker feel with one of your fingers if you can feel ice or water on the inside of the tray if you have ice then you would have to disconect and remove the ice maker fromthe machine and run hot water to clean out the ice build up on the inside then reinstall the ice maker back into the machine and test for 24 hrs to see if you get ice if you dont then you have to replace the icemaker. If you do not have any water going into the icemaker water tray then you would have to check the water valve located in the rear of your machine if the water valve is not bringing water to the icemaker replace the water valve hope this helps

Our jenn-air side by side refrigerator with ice-maker has a problem. Quite often it makes a buzzing sound which seems to be more frequent than is normal. There is water inside the freezer which solidifies...


Good day,
You'll need to isolate the problem. Shut the water off to the machine to eliminate the ice maker as an issue. Clean up any mess left over and restart the machine with the ice maker set to the off position.
Run for a few days to test the quality of the cooling capacity of the machine. If it tests O.K. then the ice maker situation can be addressed.

Dispenses water for drinking but not to make ice in ice machine


Your model refrigerator uses an electronic Ice Maker. You can test the Ice Maker by filling with tap water and let freeze sometimes they already have ice inside and shrinking because of defrost. If you can fill the trays with tap water and it freezes and dumps but does not refill with water the problem will be the water control valve. If ice maker does nothing and on then the Ice Maker is the problem. Try that first and let me know what you find, Sea Breeze

Refrigerator


it would have double solenoid where water enters fridge at the back. Possible screen is pluged inside the solenoid. Possible one solenoid is burned out. Sometimes the water entering to ice maker would freeze inside the tube and stop water from filling ice maker. Check those things for now. Another thing to ckeck to make sure nobody pulled the icemaker arm up to stop icemaker

Ice machine quit making ice


The refrigerator has a duel water valve, one for the ice-maker and one for the water dispenser (if equipped). The valve that the ice-maker relies on may be bad, or it could be the ice-maker itself. 
Another thing that could cause it would be the temperatures in the freezer. The ice-maker will not call for water until it reaches under 15 degrees. In addition, check the water tube behind the ice-maker to make sure it is not frozen, blocking more water from entering. The water does not go to the ice-maker or thru the filter unless the ice-maker turns on the water valve.



if you already checked this and think it is a different problem then let me know, i will help you figure it out.
