Have replaced everything and ice maker still doesnt work model ed5shaxmb10

An ice maker has 3 basic tasks:
1. Call for water.
2. Freeze.
3. Harvest.
Then the cycle repeats. There will always be some sensors that determine timing of those tasks. Home units usually have a bin level sensor (often an arm that's lifted as the bin fills) that can be locked in the up position to disable the ice maker.

If it's calling for water but not freezing, make sure the condenser is clean. (Sometimes they look clean but are plugged in the middle.) It has to get down to nearly 0 degrees to efficiently make ice, if it's not getting cold enough you may need a tech to figure out why.

If there's ice in the tray but it's not harvesting, clean the tray, hard water deposits can make the cubes stick in the tray.

Whirlpool ice maker locks out after every cycle. I removed the ice maker to clear a ice jam and after I reinstalled it, it only runs one cycle and the control locks in the up position shutting the ice...


The internal part that is supposed to relases the control arm when the icemaker is harvestiing a cycle is hanging up and the icemaker itself or motor board would need to be replaced...all that is really needed would be the motor module and its less expensive the part numbers are


MODULE W10190935

depending on which one ya decide to replace (the entire icemaker or just the module) it can be purchased at your local appliance parts store or online at

I have a GE Profile refrigerator, Model PFSS6PKWBSS, with icemaker on door. Water is collecting under Deli-draw and leaking down freezer door onto floor. How do I fix leak?


Try and access the ice dispenser assembly and check from where the water is leaking. You would need to disassemble the ice dispenser and ice maker to check this. The ice dispenser is located in the upper portion of the freezer compartment. This assembly stores ice made by the icemaker and dispenses ice on demand from the door dispenser target switch.
1. Remove the upper ice bucket tray.
2. Slide out the ice dispenser assembly.
3. Remove the ice cube solenoid linkage Phillips head screw and slide the linkage back.
4. Remove the ice crusher cover Phillips head screws (2) and remove the cover.
5. With a pair of pliers, twist off the backing plate tabs located on either side of the crusher.
6. With 2 small flat-blade screwdrivers, unlock the ice crusher locking tabs located at either side of the ice crusher.
7. Lift the ice crusher out of the bucket.
8. Remove the ice crusher back cover.
9. Remove the locking ring from the ice crusher auger.
10. Remove the plastic nut with a pair of pliers by turning it clockwise.
11. Remove the spacers and blades. The blades are numbered for reassembly.

The icemaker is located in the upper rear of the freezer compartment and supplies ice to the dispenser tub.
1. Disconnect the icemaker cable connector.
2. Remove 1/4-in. icemaker mounting screws and slide out the icemaker.
This refrigerator is equipped with an Electronic Icemaker.

Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Inconsistent ice maker

If you hit the ice maker or do you hit the water filter? if you hit the ice maker then I would say you need a new ice maker if you are hitting the water filter then you may have a frozen water line.

Ice dispenser on kenmore side by side refrigerator

If the release mechanism is jamming you might need to replace ice maker itself. The kit is only about $10 cheaper so I would change out the icemaker
