Ffhs2611lw doesnt create ice


Good Morning Tom, thank you for allowing me to assist you!


If your ice maker has stopped producing ice completely, here are a few simple troubleshooting tips that may help resolve your issue:


  • It may be turned off. Look for the wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If the wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. If so, try one of these: If your ice maker has a small red plastic lever, lower it to lower the wire. If there's no plastic lever, simply lower the wire. In either case, the ice maker should begin producing ice again.

  • Make sure that the temperature is 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly.

  • When was the last time the filter was changed? Water filters are recommended to be change approximately every 6-9 months depending on your water usage and frequency.

  • The ice maker fill tube may be blocked with ice or have a clogged water filter. If so, melt the blockage using a hair dryer-but be careful to not melt any plastic parts!

  • The water shut-off valve or water-inlet valve, or both, may need replacing. The ice maker head assembly may have broken parts. Look to see if the gears are broken. Check to see if the small plastic arms that rest against the ice rake are broken. If the ice maker head assembly is modular and you've found broken parts, you can just replace it.

Hope this proves helpful!

Ice maker stopped working. Pulled cover off and found that gear was off. Any suggestions?


It's hard to be sure - but it looks like the gear / wheel in your hand has a broken hub. The white part in the middle on the main part in the freezer looks like it was once on the back of the gear.

Provide the manufacturer's name and model number of the fridge / freezer and I will look up the parts for the ice maker and I can verify how much / little of the assembly you'll need to purchase to get it working again.

Desire to purchase an ice maker. What is the ice maker's part number?


call your local appliance parts store in the yellow pgs. with your model no.
They will give you the exact number and sell it too. I use them all the time for tech info.

My whirlpool conquest side by side frig purchased in 2008 has a red blinking light in the freezer the ice maker is not working at all.


The blinking light goes to the ice maker on/off sensor. This is actually a real easy fix. The sensor is bad and needs to be replaced. If you look at the blinking light you'll notice there are two screws holding that section in. Directly across from that is another white piece held in by one or two screws. Whenever you close the door the beam is complete and the ice maker will turn on. To order the parts, find your model number, which is normally located in the refrigerator side, and then call any parts distributor ( i use appliance parts depot), and tell them you need the ice maker sensor kit. Thecost shouldn't be more than $50 I think. Hopefully this helps and let me know if you have any other questions.

I have a kitchenaid 5ksm150(UK), I recently purchased an


Hello KELPIES52. I see you have two postings, with some minor differences. You say purchased an “ice-cream maker attachment” in the US and my first clarification question to you is, did you purchase the KA Ice Cream Maker, Model KICA0W, or some other brand that said it was compatible with KA mixers?
If you did buy a KA ice cream maker, then it should fit all KA models, including yours. If you purchased another brand of ice cream maker, then it may never be truly compatible, and there’s the rub.
First regardless of what brand of ice cream maker you purchased, you should have both your KA mixer’s Parts List manual and both the KA Ice Cream Mixers Parts List and Users Manuals in hand. If you're lacking them, you can download a PDF version from the KA website at: http://www.kitchenaid.com/flash.cmd?/#/page/home.
Click on Customer Care>Locate Manuals & Guides> and enter the 6 character model number, in your case use 5KSM150, for you mixer and select the file 5KSM150PSEWH4.pdf (777.26 KB) listed under Parts List (1113) (you can actually choose any file sized 777.26 KB; they are all for the different color UK models) and then check to verify this matches your mixer model. This is a good file to have on hand if you ever decide to troubleshoot and fix your mixer by yourself.
After downloading your mixer’s Parts List manual, enter the KA Ice-Cream maker’s 6 character model number, KICA0W (that’s a zero and not an “O”). Download the Part List and the Use & Care Guide manuals (even if you don’t have a KA ice-cream maker) for your future reference.
If, perchance, you have the KA ice cream maker, turn to page 5 for instructions for mounting the drive assembly onto your tilt head mixer's agitator shaft. The KA ice cream maker’s drive is designed to fit over the spring and groove pin (stud) on the agitator shaft.

On the other hand, if your ice cream maker is not a KA model, you can still remove the collar, spring and groove pin if you’d like to give it a try. You will need a punch drive with a smaller diameter than the groove pin, a hammer, steady hands and plenty of patience. Tilt your mixer’s head up and rotate the planetary agitator shaft so that the flush end of the pin with the agitator shaft is facing you (the extended part of the pin is facing away from you). Align your punch drive on the end of the groove pin and give it a good whack; repeat until the pin starts to come out the other side of the agitator shaft. Continue tapping until the pin comes completely free. (Note the groves on the pin as you will need to orient the groove pin the same way when you reassemble the spring and collar on the agitator shaft when you’re finished making ice cream). Once the pin is removed the spring and collar will easily come off and then you can attempt to mount the ice cream maker drive on the agitator shaft. Caveat Emptor! Good luck, I hope this helps.
